Top 11 Apple Treats from Disney Parks

Growing up, autumn meant an annual field trip to a local farm to pick apples. There’s no denying that pumpkin is having a moment right now, but I wanted to pay tribute to the other fruit that makes me think of crisp fall leaves – the apple. We love to enjoy apples on salads, in baked goods and on top of fluffy pancakes. Here are our top choices for yummy apple treats at Disney Parks and Resorts:

  1. Apple Crisp a la Mode – Hollywood Scoops, Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    Perfect for the Florida heat, this treat features cinnamon apples topped with old-fashioned vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce and streusel.
  2. Cinnamon-Apple Baton – Troubadour Tavern, Disneyland park
    This flaky, twisted pastry is filled with apples and cinnamon.
  3. Apple Strudel – Sommerfest, Epcot
    Apple Strudel that would make my German Oma proud, this is the real deal smothered with vanilla sauce.

  1. Apple Walnut Cake – California Grill, Disney’s Contemporary Resort
    A new addition to the California Grill lineup—heirloom apple, fig and cherry compote, roasted white chocolate mousse, apple-caramel sauce, candied walnuts and brown sugar ice cream make one deliciously decadent dessert.
  2. Flo’s Signature Apple-Cheddar Pie-O-Rama – Flo’s V8 Café, Disney California Adventure
    Apple and cheddar are the new peanut butter and jelly, they just go together.

  1. Caramel Apple Crumb Pancakes – Trattoria al Forno, Disney’s BoardWalk
    Served with bacon or chicken sausage, these pancakes are a sweet way to start your day.
  2. Red’s Apple Freeze – Cozy Cone Motel, Disney California Adventure
    Get your kicks on Route 66 with Red’s Apple Freeze… souvenir sipper optional. Ka-chow!
  3. Warm Glazed Doughnut – Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant, Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    This doughnut is stacked with cinnamon apples, and topped with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel sauce… out of this world!

  1. Apple Granola Pancakes – Carnation Café, Disneyland park
    The crunchy granola and fluffy pancakes make a perfect combination of texture.
  2. Fried Herb and Garlic Cheese – 50’s Prime Time Café, Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    Served with raspberry sauce, grapes and apples, this dish shows off the apple’s savory side.
  3. Apple-Cranberry Pie Cupcake – Contempo Café, Disney’s Contemporary Resort
    A vanilla cupcake with apple-cranberry pie filling and cream cheese frosting, look for this limited-time sweet over the Thanksgiving holiday.

  • At the California Grill right now, the apple walnut bread is not on the menu and hasn’t been on the menu for a year according to our server. Kind of disappointed as we were really looking forward to that dessert at the end of my meal.

  • Jami, a dole whip doesn’t have apples in it…pineapples don’t count 🙂

  • Did we all forget the Dole Whips? I’m just saying!

  • How about the recipes for these or even the hyperlink to where they are for us to chase after as part of the fun.

  • I visited the French bakery in Epcot the other day and was very disappointed that they no longer sell the Apple Turnover / Chaussons Aux Pommes. I have eaten these many times in France and now that I live in Florida the French bakery at Epcot was the only place where I could get them. They were delicious and my very favorite thing to eat at all of Walt Disney World. Please bring them back.

  • This is a really cool idea for an autumn post. Come to think of it, I like how specific the food posts get throughout the Disney Parks Blog; you guys do a good job of keeping them interesting and timely!

  • Great list! But why omit LeFou’s Brew, which is the same drink as Red’s Apple Freeze? 😀
