T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Ice Cream Season Is Upon Us!

Ok – before you ask – YES – Ice Cream Season is a real thing – very very real. It’s when the weather gets unbearably hot – and sticky, and humid – and the ONLY cure comes in the form of ICE CREAM-Y GOODNESS!

My son is a BIG fan of ice cream season (in case you couldn’t tell!)

The summer months here in Upstate NY where I live can be HOT HOT – humid and wet and just unpleasant – but we can’t hold a candle to what they deal with down south in Florida!

Ponchos are a must when traveling to Disney in the summer – don’t want to get caught in the rain without one!

If you decide to head to Walt Disney World in the summer months – I bid you much luck – as the crowds can be intense, and it rains most days (better remember your ponchos!), and it’s HOT HOT HOT all the time – with humidity that is so thick it can be cut with a knife.

While it may not be ideal for some travelers, luckily – ice cream season is in FULL SWING at Disney World in the summertime. Aside from the iconic Mickey Ears Ice Cream bar, here are some awesome ice cream-y treats you can cool off with at Disney:

IceCream

My husband and I love going to get the Gold Rush Sundae from the Ghiradelli Ice Cream shop in Disney Springs – it has freshly made chocolate and peanut butter sauces – and while we normally share it I could easily finish off one of my own any day

DoleWhip

Ah, the Dole Whip – a frozen treat so iconic it has an almost cult-like following – and with good reason! Pineapple flavored soft serve, alone or paired with pineapple juice for a delicious float – it really is the perfect treat on a hot day

KitchenSinkBig

Beaches And Cream is home to this ULTIMATE Ice Cream Dessert – The Kitchen Sink – which comes with tons of ice cream, toppings, and even a WHOLE CAN of whipped cream! It’s made to serve 4 people, but you can definitely split it among more than that (especially if some are kids!)

KitchenSinkMini

Now, if you aren’t up to eating an entire sink’s worth of ice cream – there’s a miniature version available at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor – and the best part is you get to take the little sink home with you!!!!

 

There are really like hundreds of amazing Ice Cream treats at Walt Disney World – these are just a few of the best – and even though summer isn’t my favorite time to visit Disney, I would still go there during those months if I could – just to get my hands on these amazing treats!

What about you – how do YOU cool off in the hot summer heat?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Top WDW Ice Cream Treats

June has arrived! And Even though the calendar says it’s not officially summer yet, I personally have always thought of June as summertime – which around here in Upstate NY means climbing temperatures, and humidity too! It’s been in the 80’s all this week, and it’s a nice departure from the lackluster Spring we have been having. One of my favorite ways to celebrate the arrival of summer is with ICE CREAM – it’s the perfect way to cool off on a hot day!

Speaking of hot days….the start of June also means the start of the heat at Walt Disney World – and those of you who head to Disney in the summer months can expect not only high temperatures, but also humidity that is so thick you feel like you’re wearing it like a winter coat! Ice cream is vitally important on those hot summer days at the Disney Parks, and here are a few of my personal favorites:

Kitchen Sink Big

If you’re super into ice cream (which, let’s face it, who isn’t?), you can try and tackle the “Kitchen Sink” served at Beaches and Cream – it features vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, coffee and mint chocolate chip ice creams smothered in ALL THE TOPPINGS – and while it technically serves 4, I have heard rumors of people finishing it off on their own!

KitchenSink small

If you’re not sure you can handle the full size sink, then this Mickey’s Kitchen Sink might be a better pick for you – and it comes in a super adorable souvenir “sink” that you can take home with you!

IceCream

The smell of the Ghiradelli ice cream parlor in Disney Springs hits you long before you reach its entrance – and even if there’s a long line (which there often is) – it’s WELL worth the wait! I personally love the Gold Rush Sundae – ice cream smothered in amazing house made hot fudge and peanut butter – but there are plenty of other delicious options to choose from here

dole-whip-aloha

Ok well this one isn’t technically “ice cream” – but the citrus-y taste of a dole whip or float is the perfect way to cool off on a hot day

And of course there’s the classic Mickey Bar – vanilla ice cream covered in chocolate, in the shape of everyone’s favorite Mouse – it’s an iconic treat that’s a must have for me every time I’m at Disney!

Ice Cream (like most everything else) tastes better at Disney World, and there are plenty of places to find this cool treat all over WDW – whether it’s in a cone, on a stick, in a cup, or in a sink – there’s plenty of ice cream options to help satisfy your sweet tooth AND keep you cool while you tour the WDW Theme Parks

TGIF – and happy (almost) Summer!
