Favorite WDW Ice Cream Treat - Mickey's Ice Cream Bar or Mickey's Ice Cream Sandwich?

It doesn't matter if you've been to Walt Disney World only once or a thousand and one times, I know you've seen those carts or kiosks selling ice cream treats. And you've probably stopped and bought one of those treats So, what is your favorite; the Mickey's Ice Cream Bar or the Mickey's Ice Cream Sandwich?

Of all my "favorite" blogs this is probably one of the most difficult ones for me to decide what's my favorite. I love them both; as well as the fruit bars. Nothing beats those treats for a quick between meal snack, a parade watching snack or just a cool me down snack..

Even thought I love them both I'm not going to wimp out and not choose. So, here's the list of my favorite ice cream treat:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1) Mickey's Ice Cream Bar
2) Mickey's Ice Cream Sandwich
3) Fruit Bar

There's not much to say here except I'm one of those folks who eats all the chocolate off of the Mickey's Ice Cream bar before I eat the ice cream. If I don't, pieces of that chocolate always end up on my shirt. :-) And I love the challenge of staying ahead of the melting ice cream on those really hot and humid Florida days.

OK, I've told you mine, now it's your turn to let me know what your favorite ice cream treat is. If others in your family have a different favorite made sure you let us know what theirs is. (Example: me - Mickey Bar, wife - Ice Cream Sandwich, son - Mickey Bar.) So let me know your favorite treat, I'd love to hear from you!

In the coming weeks I will blog on more "favorite" things to do in Walt Disney World. Also, let me know if you have any suggestions as to other things you would like to see "top lists" of. I'm open to any and all suggestions. So far readers have suggested I blog on Magical Moments and Favorite Disney snacks, deserts and characters. Great ideas! What do you think? Based on the number of comments, I think you all agree that these are fun to do.

And the winner is: the winner of the AllEars® baseball cap for commenting on my "Favorite WDW Tour" in each of the WDW parks" blog is: Rob Brookhart from Iowa. Congratulations to Rob and "thank you" to everyone who took the time to share their "Favorite WDW Tour" and all the loyal AlllEars® readers!

I also want to comment on last weeks blog. The Le Vins de France and their Grand Marnier Slush (France) was very popular as were the Rose and Crown (United Kingdom), the Tambu Lounge (Polynesian) and the Dawa Bar (Animal Kingdom). The Mexico Pavilion in Epcot had two favorites in La Cava de Tequila and the Margarita Stand. One of the more interesting favorites was the plum wine in China. Even though I'm not much of a wine drinker it sounds like something I'd like to try.

Did you know AllEars® has a huge area called Rate and Review where you can share your dining reviews with fellow readers? Check it out!

Finally, be one of the first people to hear when my newest blogs go live on AllEars.net by joining "DisneyMike's World" Facebook group.

I really meant to put down three different treats, but as I sat here to write it, I realized this was the only one I could remember!

MaryAnn Eckenrode :

1) Mickey's Ice Cream Bar
2) Milk Shakes @ Plaza Restaurant
3) the ice cream at the Fountainview in Epcot

The ice cream at the Fountainview is excellent. You get a chance to take a break and watch the fountain, listen to the music, enjoy the scenery and just be thankful that you are there.

Betsy:

1) Mickey's Ice Cream Bar
2) Mickey's Ice Cream Sandwich
3) Rainbow Popsicle

#1 is a must-eat on every trip!! I always get 1 treat from a cart each trip and it's almost always a Mickey Ice Cream Bar :) Yum. Do you think they'll ever mass produce these and sell them at CostCo? Ha.

Carrie Radatz:

Great blog! Here are my family's favs!
me- 1)chocolate covered bananna 2)fruit bar
the kids- itzakadoozie
hubby- Mickey ice cream bar

Megan:

1.) Mickey Mouse Bar.
I always make sure I have at least a few of these on my trips to Disney. Lol. Can't live without the Mickey Mouse Bar.
2.) funnel Cake.
I know it's not ice cream, but my mom and I always have at least one in Frontierland. Yummy.
3.) Ice Cream Sundae @ Pop Century
On our last day we use our Snack Option for an Ice Cream Sundae which is very well worth using the point left over. You get more then a portioned amount and you can pick your own toppings and such. It's a tradition for us to end our trip with one of these. :)

This year, however, i'm dying to try a Dole Whip. After reading about everyone just loving one of these I will have to try it. :)

Here is another "favorite" idea... "favorite time/place to close your eyes and let your other senses take over". Mine is this: I stand on Main Street near the candy shop at dusk, close my eyes, listen for the music and people laughing, smell the sweet air wafting from the store then take a big bite from a caramel apple I've just gotten...ahhh."

Phil Vickers:

Ice Cream Sandwich..there IS no other Ice Cream Treat

Lisa:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1)Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich @ Main St. Bakery
2)Mickey Ice Cream Bar
3)Ghiardelli's Hot Fudge Sundae

Admittedly, I had never had the chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich @ the Main Street Bakery til my last visit. I had seen a photo of it on someone's Disney Blog and decided to try it out. WOW! Hands down the best value ever...and delicious, too! Yummy, soft, chewy cookie and smooth vanilla ice cream...delightful! Up until my last visit, my all-time favorite ice cream at the park was the Mickey Ice Cream Bar. My son's favorite- the itzakadoozie. We'd search out those ice cream carts and race to get in line!
It's tradition on the last evening of our trip that we go to Ghiardelli's. While I'm always tempted to try something new, I stick with my usual,a hot fudge sundae.

I am a germaphobe. I use my weight in hand sanitizer. I once dropped my Mickey Ice Cream Bar on the ground after only one bite...I picked it up and ate it...enough said.

Connie:

1. Mickey Ice Cream Bar
2. The Pineapple/Vanilla ice cream treat in Advenutreland-cannot remember name of stand or official treat name; but I think you know what I mean lol
3. Ice cream cone (strawberry) at Ice Cream Parloe on corner of Main St. The ambience makes it great too.

Heather Young:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1) Mickey Ice Cream Bar
2) Dole Whip
3) Ghirardelli's Hot Fudge Sundae

I also eat the chocolate first when eating a Mickey Ice Cream Bar. I have a pic of my daughter (who was 2 and a half at the time and wearing white - I know bad move)covered in chocolate after eating a Mickey Ice Cream Bar. It started at her eyebrows and finished on her toes. Happy days...

Heather:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1)Mickey Ice Cream Bar
2)Main St Bakery Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich
3)Lava Cake with seasonal ice cream at Cali Grill


Your comments: Yum I love this favorite. I have to say that December's peppermint Cali Grill offering might have won--but its not available all the time!

Joshua Swainston:

Kara:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1)Mickey ice cream bar
2)anything from Main Street ice cream shop
3)any ice cream eaten while sitting by the pool

Your comments: I love the Mickey bars, but I think location counts too. The ambience on main street or on a beautiful day at the pool helps it taste even better!

Jim :

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1)Chocolate Chip Ice cream sandwich
2)Mickey's Ice cream Bar
3)ITZAKADOOZIE


Your comments: I believe they stopped selling the chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches when the Nestle sponsership ended but they were great even though they werent really Disney. It is great to just slow down and enjoy a ice cold treat on the really hot days and watch people walk by.

Tara W.:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1)Mickey Ice Cream Bar
2)Dole Whip
3)Dipped Ice Cream from Main Street


Your comments:
You can't beat a Mickey Ice Cream Bar with its rich chocolate covering and creamy vanilla ice cream. MMMM...wish they made them for home consumption, but only getting them in WDW makes them all the more irresistible. The Dole Whip is a refreshing treat on a hot day and is a must every trip, and you can't go wrong with a traditional cone dipped from the ice cream parlor on Main Street.

PABLO DAMESCHIK:

Your comments:MM Ice cream bar is a classic, but Dole Whip ia a monster jam's... yummy

Kelly:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1)Dole Whip
2)Mickey Bar
3)Frozen Lemonade


Your comments:
My favorite frozen ice cream treat at Disney is definitely Dole Whip. I love to get one at the Polynesian and then go sit and watch the Magic Kingdom Fireworks and Electrical Water Pageant. After that, nothing beats a Mickey Bar. I always eat the chocolate off first or else I end up looking like a 3 year old with chocolate all over my face. As for my third, I'm not sure it really counts as Ice Cream, but I love getting frozen lemonade. It is always the perfect drink to chill out with.

Bonnie Tulenko:

You just can't beat those Mickey Ears. Gotta bite them off first. YUM

Nicole:

I LOVE the Micky Bars, although I rarley get one. My 3 year old loved the Itskadoodle back in March when we went. It was so cold when we were there but she didnt care she ate it rigt up. The problem is I never have any room to get a Micky Bar after eating everything else. Next time I am saving room for a Mickey Bar

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1)sugar cookie & vanilla ice cream sandwhich @ main st. Bakery

Kelly Fleming:

Liz:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1) Dole Whip
2) Kaki Gori in Epcot Japan (close enough to ice cream, right?)
3) Fudge Brownie Sundae at Mrs. Potts in the Magic Kingdom


Your comments:

Thanks for doing ice cream -- I was at a bit of a loss last week, not being much of a drinker! But ice cream, do I know ice cream!

We have a "tradition" of going to the Magic Kingdom and getting a Fudge Brownie Sundae on the arrival day of any visit to Walt DIsney World. I'm sure I could make one at home but it would just not be the same.

Mark Swayze:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1) Mickey's Ice Cream Bar
2) Dole Whip
3) Root Beer Float

Jackie B:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1)Soft serve swirl Auntie Gravity
2)Dole Whip
3)fruit bar


Your comments: I know this was originally the carts, but when I saw so many others venture off the path, I had to answer with the first treat that came to mind! Auntie Gravity's is a "must-do" for my family every trip! I ALWAYS get the swirl, but the rest of the family will mix it up a bit. We discovered Dole Whips 2 trips ago (I know, what took us so long??) so that HAD to be on the list. From the carts, I usually pick the fruit bar-- trying to convince myself it's the "healthy" choice! But I do also love the Mickey bar!

Valerie:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1)Chocolate Shake from Min and Bills docside diner at Studios
2)Orange and Vanilla Dole Whip at Magic Kingdom
3)Any other chocolate ice cream that I have eaten on our trips


Your comments:
We just got back from a trip to the World and my top 2 were firsts for me and I absolutely loved them! We usually have ice cream for lunch at the parks so I love it ALL!

Tony Lliteras:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

1)Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich at Dino Bites in Dinoland (Oatmeal Raisin with Vanilla)
2)Orange Dole Whip
3)Sci-Fi Milkshake


Mary:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

And not an option on the cart but it is a must to have when in the Magic Kingdom is the Pineapple Dole Whip - so yummy!!


Your comments:
It is so nice to sit and relax on a hot day - whether watching the parade, sitting in the shade, or waiting in line to eat a nice ice cream treat!!

Penny from Vermont:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

Rick:

My Favorite Ice Cream Treat

3)Main St Bakery Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich


Your comments:

I even have a Mickey's Ice Cream Bar antenna topper on my car! Of course, I'll eat anything even remotely related to ice cream. That's a food group, right?

I would have to say my favorite is definitely the Mickey's Ice Cream Bar. :-)
