“Skiing” the slopes of Mount Gushmore can snowball a big hunger. Good thing Blizzard Beach offers lots of dining choices to satisfy any appetite.

Try a Blizzard Dog or a Tropic Dog with banana peppers, tomatoes, and onions on a pretzel bun, or chomp a turkey leg and frozen treats at Avalunch. Get a lotta grub at the Lottawatta Lodge. Cheeseburgers, chili dogs, pizza, and sandwiches abound at this alpine chalet. Or thaw out at The Warming Hut with toasty pulled pork and BBQ chicken sandwiches or St. Louis ribs and chicken salad.

Not that hungry? The Mini Donuts stand near Lottawatta Lodge serves some mini treats that are big on taste. Get them by the dozen or half dozen with raspberry, chocolate or white chocolate dipping sauce. You’ll want to skip the lunch entrees mentioned above and dive straight into dessert! Soft drinks, frozen lemonade, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate are also available here. And if it’s frozen treats or refreshing beverages you’re after, stop by Frostbite Freddy’s, I.C. Expeditions, or the Polar Pub.

All locations are quick-service, and most, if not all, accept the Disney Dining Plan.

Today’s Takeaway:
Chill out! Fess up, how many Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars do you eat when you visit Walt Disney World? Seeing as 3.3 million of them are sold each year at the Vacation Kingdom, I won’t believe you if you don’t say at least 1! These chocolate-covered creamy vanilla delights can be found at all the WDW parks—including the water parks—and they go for about $3.75, or one snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan.

Sadly, I’m not at any Disney park today. *Sigh* But I did find this great blog post by James at Home Is Where the Mouse Is, which gives step-by-step instructions on how to make Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars at home!

You will need:
Ice cream of your choice
Mickey-shaped cookie cutter (or 2 circles to make the ears and head if you don’t have one)
Chocolate melts, instant chocolate shell syrup, or chocolate chips (melted in microwave)
Popsicle sticks

    Great information. I’ve been considering taking my family to one of the Disney water parks. I’m happy to learn more about them and even dining options to help me to make my decision. Thanks.

    • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

      You’re very welcome! Keep checking in, because we’ll be talking about Typhoon Lagoon next month!

  • Merideth Wilson

    Yum! The ice cream looks so good..and thanks for the tip of using the Magic Shell ice cream topping, sounds a lot easier than dealing with melting ice cream and hot melted chocolate…lol!

    • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

      Mine didn’t turn out very well, but they did taste great! :)
