The Deserts of Disney & Universal (I had no idea!!)

When in Disney I was going to write a blog about what I wore on vacation or what I packed, but what we ate seemed so much more interesting! Also, it’s a PSA!!

Have you been or are going to Disney/Universal in the near future? Well, if you are you need to pay special attention to the deserts!! Listen, taking my kids when they were 3 & 5 was wonderful, to see their little faces light up the first time they met a character or saw the castle was something I will never forget. However, I was so consumed with watching after them I completely missed so much!!!

Taking them now that they are 11 & 13 was a completely different experience. We all were able to really enjoy the parks, rides, entertainment, food and the DESERTS!! I had no idea!!!

The desert eating started in EPCOT. We were entering the World Showcase and thee is was….the most amazing donut cart we had ever seen (for the moment)! So many to choose from but Bella choose the the vanilla donut with chocolate icing and mini m&m’s. It was so gooey and so good!!

Next we went over to Universal and our first night there we came across this shop called Voo Doo Donuts. Ummmm……..when you walk into this store you are greeted with a carousel of all the amazing donuts to choose from. We choose a vanilla one with marshmallow topping and captain crunch cereal and another vanilla donut with caramel, chocolate, and nuts. Totally worth the extra calories!!

Check out their other locations here! If you are near one, you NEED to try them!

On our 2nd day in Universal as we were leaving the park we came across these Lard Lad Donuts! This donut was bigger than my daughters (and my) face!! Again this did not disappoint and fed the 4 of us for 2 days.

As good as it looks for sure!!

Lastly, a friend had recommended we eat at the Chocolate Emporium at the City Walk in Universal. So we did! Dinner was good, but it was all about the milkshakes. I have never seen anything like this before ever in my life!! These milkshakes are served in a super mason jar and each flavor has an amazing treat on top. Bella had the chocolate brownie milkshake, which had a chocolate chocolate chip brownie on top with the straw going right through it! Sandro had a double chocolate milkshakes with whipped cream, chocolate chunks and strawberries on top!!

That’s all I remember from this amazing trip to Disney and Universal!! If you have gone with your babies, it is totally worth going again once they are old enough for you all as a family to enjoy everything these parks have to offer!! Especially the deserts!!

Please leave a comment if have tried any of these places or if you know of any other amazing deserts there to try!!
