The World of Disney Ice Cream

We’re back with another look at the The World According to Jeff Goldblum, this time with a focus entirely on ice cream. Following the premiere episode on “Sneakers,” the second chapter in the Disney+ original series examines the best dessert ever and its variety of presentations and flavors. From cones and sundaes to cakes and simple scoops, you can’t go wrong with the sweet frozen treat!

“Ice Cream” debuted early this morning on Disney+ and we thought while we’re already thinking about desserts, why not take a look at some of the best ice cream offerings that are Disney themed or offered at the domestic resorts. Grab a spoon and let’s dig in! By the way, don’t watch this episode on an empty stomach. You’ve been warned.

Mickey Ice Cream Bars

Nothing beats the Premium Bars sold in the parks, but if you’re not heading to a Disney resort soon, this is the next best thing. Debuting this past February, Nestle’s Disney Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bar is a quick way to get your Disney fix while satisfying your sweet tooth.

Disney’s Beach Club

Over at Beaches and Cream at Disney’s Beach Club, you can indulge in the Kitchen Sink Sundae which is loaded with five different types of ice cream, every topping, and a can of whip cream. It even comes in a nifty serving dish that looks like a sink. This baby doesn’t come cheap and will set you back $34 but it serves at least four people!
