Wall-E in 'World of Color' at Disney California Adventure Park

Smooth, Creamy, Tart & Dreamy

I learned an interesting fact the other day … did you know that Key Lime Pie is the official pie for the State of Florida? It makes perfect sense; the best key lime pies are made with key limes, and we all know (at least Floridians know) that the best key limes are found in Key West, Florida.

Key Lime Pie

Living in Florida as a child, I grew up loving this indigenous treat. I especially enjoyed it in the summer time as a way to escape the sweltering Florida summer heat. It truly is one of the perfect summer treats – cool, creamy, sweet, and tangy. It packs a crunch and a puckery punch that transports your senses from the heat, if only for a moment.

For all these delicious reasons and more, Walt Disney World Resort has loaded up their Candy Kitchens with cold and tasty Key Lime Pies to help you beat the heat and steal a taste of something sweet. Of course we couldn’t have just any Key Lime Pies at Walt Disney World; we have to make sure that our pal Mickey Mouse gets in on the action too.

Where can you find this delectable summer treat? Goofy’s Candy Kitchen at Downtown Disney, Sweet Spells and Candy Cauldron at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the Main Street Confectionery at Magic Kingdom park.

They don’t have this deliciousness at Epcot? Much sadness.

YUM! I love key lime pie. Will these stick around into September?

We’re regularly changing out our treats to make room for new and exciting goodies – but after reading all of these great comments, we may need to keep it around longer than originally planned!

They also have great Key Lime pie at Disney’s Old Key West Resort.

Sunshine Seasons at The Land has an absolutely amazing Key Lime Tart at the bakery counter. It’s a bit lighter than traditional Key Lime Pie (which means room for more), but just as delicious!

can you get these as a snack on ddp?


Dara Trujillo on July 21st, 2010 at 1:34 pm

Hi Bruno – you can absolutely get the Key Lime Pie as your snack on the Disney Dining Plan!

I already have key lime on my must have list ever since I saw that they have KEY LIME FUDGE at main street candy in MK. I hope this will be a year round treat as I am not going until November. Will there be pie as well as fudge?


Danica on July 20th, 2010 at 10:26 pm

That’s super cute! I’ll definitely be getting one of those if they’re still available in August!

Look at the hidden Mickey in the whip cream!

My dream job is working in a Walt Disney World Bakery! And as a Floridian, I love Key Lime pie sooo much!

When will we see the sugar free version for the diabetics among us?

Key Lime Pie is one of my all time favorite desserts, I tried out the pie at Sunshine Seasons last year and it was like whipped jello – eek. I hope the recipe has changed for these pies, we will be in WDW next month and I really would love some smooth and creamy key lime pie :)


Maureen from Queensland on July 22nd, 2010 at 3:52 am

Dara we are visiting WDW in Sept Oct this year. We don’t have key lime pie in Australia so please could you see if the key lime pie can be kept on the menu’s at the bakery’s including sunshine seasons a bit longer. Never knew about the fudge so hope to try that as well. regards!
