Halloween at Walt Disney World Resort

Disneyland Resort Favorites for National Pie Day

posted on January 19th, 2012 by Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer


Who knew that National Pie Day is Monday, Jan. 23? And for those of us who love nothing more than mile-high meringue on dark chocolate, or a big slice of warm apple pie with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, it’s the perfect excuse to celebrate. With pie(s), of course.

Mini Blueberry Pie at Hungry Bear Restaurant in Disneyland Park

Happily, I’ll be at the Disneyland Resort that day, and I’m heading straight to Disneyland park to dig into two of my favorites. The mini blueberry pie at Hungry Bear Restaurant tops the list – a mini-pie that I can devour without much guilt, served with a sugary latticed crust. Running a close second is the apple pie at the new Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe – again, personal-sized with that same fantastic crust, both the creations of Disneyland Executive Pastry Chef Jean-Marc Viallet.

Even better news ahead, fellow pie fans: the new Flo’s V-8 Café in Cars Land, set to debut this summer at Disney California Adventure park, already has four pies on the menu: Dutch apple-cheddar, strawberry rhubarb, Mississippi Mud and blueberry. My first order will be the rich Mississippi Mud.

Do you have a favorite Disneyland Resort pie?

To say I LOVE pie is an understatement. Thanks for posting some of the options. My next visit, I am definitely checking them out and now I am super excited about Flo’s! Dutch Apple-Cheddar AND Strawberry Rhubarb – Yes, please! But no lattice crust for me – it may look pretty but reduces the amount of yummy flakey crust. :)

What kinds of pies are available at Walt Disney World? The only one I can think of is the key lime in a cup at Flame Tree.

Is there any chance of getting Hungry Bear, Jolly Holiday and Flo’s to carry vanilla ice cream to make those pies moldey! (A-la-mode!)

Are there any gluten-free pies in Disneyland?

Amber’s right! Everyone knows that Pi Day is 3.14. We celebrate with a homemade apple pi(e) every year. :)

There is a difference between pie day and pi day :-) these pies are pretty tasty! I’ve only had peach and am looking forward to trying the blueberry tomorrow.

Pi Day is a holiday commemorating the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is celebrated on March 14…

Dutch Apple Cheddar? Mississippi Mud? Pineapple? Ohh please promote these pies on Main Street USA- WDW!!

I’d buy in bulk to take for the car ride back to Clearwater! They sound amazing.

Those personal-sized pies are delicious! I’m so glad that they will also be available at Flo’s V8 Cafe. (Thankfully for us humans, Flo’s will have more than just gasoline and oil. :) )

Thanks for the reminder and a great reason to try something new at Disneyland. Though I can’t make it for National Pie Day I will definitely make a detour on my next visit to the Hungry Bear. I didn’t know they had blueberry pie. Is this something they have year round?

Colleen–
When the Hungry Bear’s new menu debuted, the did have a blueberry pie, although most recently, they haven’t had that kind anymore. The last time I was there (a few weeks ago,) they had a choice of apple or peach. Perhaps they alternate? At any rate, I hope they they bring back the blueberry pie.
