Is it just us or does your inner child come out when stepping foot into a bakery? We aren’t sure if it’s the sweet smell or the enticing appearance of sugary goodness… but yes, we can’t contain our joy! Now double that with the fact that it’s a Walt Disney World bakery and it’s a perfect, sugary fountain of youth. Try to contain the drool on your computer or phone as we check out the top 11 bakery treats at Disney World.
Editor’s Note: During the phased reopening of Walt Disney World, not all restaurants have reopened. Check the MyDisney Experience app for restaurant availability for your upcoming trip.
11 – Donuts@ Joffrey Donuts
While it’s not technically a “bakery”, Joffrey Donuts is a great kiosk to stop by for one of the most popular bakery items around the world… DONUTS! We always make sure to stop by one of the Joffrey kiosks in Epcot – one located outside the main entrance and one on the way to Mission: SPACE. You can’t miss these massive and colorful donuts that are literally as big as our children’s faces. (You can find these donuts at Joffrey locations all over Walt Disney World).
10 – Scones @ Main Street Bakery
What’s better than walking down Main Street U.S.A. at Disney’s Magic Kingdom? Walking down Main Street U.S.A. with a bakery treat in your hand! Stop by Main Street Bakery which is mostly a Starbucks stop. Don’t let the routine Starbucks steer you away from here, however, as the bakery treats alone are worth a visit. Cake pops, cookies, and croissants hit the menu here, but the scones top our list. Scone selections change, but if you get a chance to taste the Blueberry Scone, we’d recommend that one!
9 – Sweet Breads @ Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe
Maybe you’re a bakery fan, but not always a fan of sweetness overload. Sometimes we tend to lean towards the side of baked bread. Kringla Bakeri in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion has exceptional sweet bread options including their popular School Bread as well as delicious Norwegian Kringla (sweet pretzels). Just the right amount of sweetness!
8 – Cinnamon Rolls @ Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery
You’ve likely had cinnamon rolls, but have you had Disney’s cinnamon rolls? There are a few locations to snag this bakery treat including the well-known Cinnamon Rolls at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom. But, try the Colossal Cinnamon Rolls over at Kusafiri in Animal Kingdom to experience “colossal” taste bud happiness.
7 – Brownies @ Karamell-Kuche
You can’t go wrong with a brownie. Chocolate compacted together for that ultimate richness in every bite – YUM! Brownies can be found at several bakery spots around Walt Disney World but the best bakery to taste these gems is at Karamell-Kuche in Epcot’s Germany Pavilion. Of course, their brownie options typically include a twist of caramel in them since that’s what Karamell-Kuche is known for… but this just makes it all the better!
6 – Macaroons @ Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie
After such a rich brownie, look for a lighter bakery treat. Keep in mind, Macaroons can be a dangerous treat as they are light enough in taste to make eating several of them an easy task! Our favorite Macaroon stop is Les Halles in Epcot’s France Pavilion. This is one bakery stop you don’t want to pass up.
5 – Gluten-Free, Vegan & Kosher Treats @ Erin McKenna’s NYC Bakery
Prefer to indulge in a gluten-free, vegan and kosher bakery treat? Erin McKenna’s NYC Bakery has you covered! It’s amazing to taste sweet treats like cupcakes, cookies, donuts, brownies, and breads without all the extra ingredients. For our Celiac member in the family, discovering this bakery was as exciting as Christmas morning!
4 – Cakes @ Amorette’s Patisserie
It’s Disney, so go ahead and have your cake and eat it too! No visit to Disney Springs is complete without a stop by Amorette’s Patisserie in Town Center. Known for being a place where foodies flock, you can’t help but immediately spot their case of cakes. Go with a large cake for a celebration with friends and family or enjoy a petit cake perfect for one. Either way you go – this will be a memorable bakery stop your taste buds will be sure to reminisce about for a long time.
3 – Cookies @ Main Street Confectionery
2 – Cake Pops @ Big Top Treats
At first glance, Big Top Treats in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom looks like a gift shop with a great spread of merchandise. But once you enter the circus tent, you’ll spot the center of the tent which holds a display case of treats. This location stands out to us as one of the best places to select a cake pop of your choice! There are multiple cake flavors to choose from, each differently dipped in white or milk chocolate. They are then decorated in fun ways, shapes, and some even look like characters. Go ahead and snag a couple!
1 – Cupcakes @ All Throughout Disney World
I scream, you scream, we all scream for CUPCAKES?! Yep, cupcakes are THE must-do bakery treat to have right now at Walt Disney World. They’ve stolen the show as the trendiest bakery treat by booming in popularity on social media. Many Disney guests even do what is called the “Cupcake Crawl” around the different parks. So, what’s the deal with all the cupcake showcasing? Well – for one, Disney’s cupcakes taste amazing with their moist cake and sweet icing. Secondly, Disney has been pulling out all the stops by decorating cupcakes to match the trendiest happenings. New Disney films, characters, rides, or even merchandise? You’ll likely find a specialty cupcake topped and colored to match it in one way or another. So, go ahead and plan your “cupcake crawl” and enjoy posting those photos to Instagram while you’re at it!
