Stefan Riemer, executive pastry chef on the Culinary Development team for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, and Olivier Saintemarie, executive pastry chef for Chefs de France restaurant in the France pavilion at Epcot World Showcase, are both among Dessert Professional Magazine’s “Top 10 Pastry Chefs in America.” In celebration of this honor, the Disney Parks Moms Panelists share their favorite places to find sweet treats around Walt Disney World Resort.

Kay B.’s favorite place for dessert is tucked up in the streets of the France pavilion at Epcot, and it is also her favorite place for breakfast. “Executive Pastry Chef Olivier Saintemarie has a list of culinary achievements for Guests to experience during their stay, and one of them is a best kept secret for breakfast. Stop in at Les Halles Bouglangerie-Patisserie.” she said. “The choices for authentic French pastry are great, and they are all truly just as delicious as if you were eating one on the streets of Paris.”

“The latest tastings of Chef Riemer pasties can be found at the new Satu’li Canteen restaurant in Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom,” Kay B. shares. “Since my first taste I have been craving his blueberry cream cheese mousse and chocolate cake and can recommend both for young and old!”

If you happen to be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, head over to Sweet Spells for your choice of carmel apples. They even change the choices seasonally! If you are a fan of the peanut butter and jelly milkshake at 50’s Prime Time Café, but you don’t have reservations to eat there, don’t worry! You can stop by Tune-In Lounge and order one from the bar shares Cathy S.

Not only are their so many unique desserts all over Walt Disney World Resort, there are also unique and special experiences to enjoy them, like the new Frozen Ever After Dessert Party at Epcot World Showcase Plaza East. Lindsey M. shares that this not to miss party will have desserts, exclusive fireworks viewing AND a ride on Frozen Ever After at the Norway pavilion.

  • When they quote “eat dessert first “, they really mean it when traveling to Walt Disney World Resort! The desserts are decadent and fantastically served and if presentation is half of everything, they do it with magical flair!

  • Will the cappuccino cupcake that used to be at Pizza Planet ever make a comeback? That thing was our favorite, and although we have heard rumors that it can be found other places we have never seen it since the closure of Pizza Planet. ?
