There is no denying that almost every visitor to Walt Disney World will get a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar during their trip. They are just so good! The question is why? Why do you start to crave these bars even as you make your reservation?
The Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar is available at all the parks, usually at an ice cream cart or snack kiosk. The bar is made by Nestle and is a Mickey head shaped vanilla ice cream on a stick. Coated in chocolate goodness. Very similar to a Dove Bar or Klondike. Just not the same, so much better!
Is it because you are eating it in a Disney Park? Perhaps you are taking a few minutes to wind down after a few of your favorite rides. Is it because it’s one of the best values for your snack credit? There are so many choices. Is there some secret ingredient besides the obvious? Nothing noted on the wrapper. Perhaps its the Pixie Dust.
Tip: Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bar is Gluten-free!
Sorry I can’t answer any of these questions for you. If you’ve never had a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar, you must indulge on your next trip! Don’t believe the person who tells you it’s just like the ice cream you get at home. They have obviously never had one, and probably are Dole Whip fans anyway. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
These bars are so well-loved, Disney made a car air freshener in their honor. Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars are featured on T-shirts and collectible pins. So why question it, just eat it! Trust me when I tell you that it makes the Chip & Co ”Tastes So Good” Hall of Fame!

Warning: If you are on a diet please just look away. I am not joking, what I am about to show you will tempt even the most strong willed people. It really will.
On my latest trip to Walt Disney World I set out to try several food items I had not yet crossed off my Disney Dining Bucket List.My most anticipated item to cross of the list was the Mac & Cheese and Truffle Oil Hot Dog from Fairfax Fare at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I am not too proud to admit I love a good hot dog and I love mac and cheese, so combining the two seemed like a match made in heaven. The Mac & Cheese and Truffle Oil Hot Dog will cost you $8.59 or on the Disney Dining Plan 1 counter service credit. If you choose to use a counter service credit, you will also get a large beverage, chips and a dessert (go with the carrot cake!).
When your order is ready for pickup at the counter I think you will be pleased with what you see. The Mac & Cheese and Truffle Oil Hot Dog is also served with bacon on top! Wow – What a combination! Before you dig in make sure to get plenty of napkins and a fork to catch all of the goodies that are about to fall off. Roll your sleeves up and take a big bite!
The flavor combo here really works! The truffle oil you can certainly taste but it is not overpowering. The bacon adds a nice crisp to each bite and the mac and cheese is super creamy. This hot dog is out of this world! Give it a try, you will be happy you did!

IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, Epcot’s fireworks spectacular, is more than just bursts of color in the nighttime sky. It, like other Walt Disney World attractions, not only entertains—and wows—but also tells a story.
Utilizing pyrotechnics, a revolving globe and laser projections all synced to a booming symphonic score, this 14-minute show integrates fire, earth and water (and wind on a breezy night) to celebrate our planet and its people. The story is “told” in three acts:
- Act 1: Chaos —The Inferno Barge launches balls of fire 60 feet into the air depicting the dawn of time and the creation of Earth.
- Act 2: Order —Earth Globe glides to the center of the lagoon, glowing with great people and achievements throughout time.
- Act 3: Meaning —Earth Globe opens to reveal a torch; fireworks begin and laser lights fill the sky, propelling us into the future.
The stage is set in the middle of World Showcase Lagoon and is visible from pretty much any vantage point in the park. However, one of the best viewing spots is the patio of the Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room. Located at the United Kingdom Pavilion, Rose & Crown sits right on the water and is designed in three different architectural styles—one reflecting pubs of the late 19th century, one modeled after pubs from the 17th century and one modeled after contemporary country pubs.
Planning, Budgeting, and Saving for Walt Disney World Vacations are a way of life at the Chip and Co Household. I am constantly looking for ways to save some extra money so I can make yet another trip to our home away from home.
Today I am going to teach you some tips and tricks to really maximize your money while still taking full advantage of the food at the Walt Disney World Resort.
- One of the biggest money savers is while you are sweating at the parks remember you can stop by most quick service restaurants and ask for a water. By law they have to give you a cup of ice cold water.
- We all love Kona Cafe. I for one fell in love with Tonga Toast. But did you know just downstairs in the Polynesian Resort at Captain Cooks you can get Tonga Toast for a lot less. Great to grab when you are in a hurry. As you can see in the picture above the menu is pretty limited and there is no Kona Coffee.
- Starring Rolls Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is my favorite snack shop in all of Walt Disney World. I have confirmed this from several sources that if you ask one of the Cast Members behind the counter would it be possible to get a piece of Grapefruit Cake from the Hollywood Brown Derby if they are not to busy they will walk over and grab you a piece. I would be very polite and not get upset if they don’t have the time to do it. I am going to try this on our next trip and let you know how it goes.
Hey there! One of my most favorite Disney topics is Disney dining! I think about the wonderful food and fun snacks at Disney all the time, even my 5 year old can show you where the Dole Whip stand is! So today I wanted to share with you my Top 5 Favorite Disney Meals. If you haven’t tried them yet, I highly suggest each one – these picks will not disappoint!
Coming in at the #5 spot is La Cantina de San Angel. La Cantina is a counter service meal on the Disney Dining plan. Each meal is one credit and you get to pick an entree, drink and dessert! I LOVE Mexican food and enjoy stopping here for lunch while walking around the World Showcase in EPCOT. Some of your options here are Guacamole and Chips, Beef Brisket Tacos, Epanadas De Queso, Chicken Tacos and Nachos! I have tried most of the menu and everything is great! They also have a great kids menu, alcoholic beverages and desserts! I happen to love the churros for dessert, served with a dipping sauce- yum! They also have Mexican popsicles for dessert called Paletas in flavors like cantaloupe, mango and coconut! If you do get a dessert and want to Paletas you can ask the Cast Member at the window to hold on to it until you are finished with your meal, that way it doesn’t melt in the Florida heat!
