It’s the season of love, and there’s nothing I love more than FOOD! Especially the sweet kind – and there are plenty of sweets to go around this year for Valentine’s Day at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. Whether you’re spending the day with that special someone or just celebrating the company of good friends, our chefs have developed some amazing desserts that everyone can enjoy. Here’s your guide on where to find all the Valentine’s Day goodies!
At Walt Disney World Resort, there are plenty of lovely sweets to go around. Starting at Disney Springs with the popular Amorette’s Patisserie, you’ll be able to order a couple new desserts from Feb. 11-17. The first is a “Beauty and the Beast”-themed Rose Petit Honey Cake with Grand Marnier-soaked strawberries, rum roasted pineapple and honey Chantilly cream. The second is a Strawberry Champagne Toast Dessert – strawberry mousse with a Champagne gelée Feuilletine crunch and strawberry pâté de fruit. You’ll also find some delicious hand-dipped chocolate strawberries!
One of the staples of Valentine’s Day is chocolate, and if you’re in the mood for it, then The Ganachery is the place to go! And it’s just a quick walk from Amorette’s Patisserie. This year, the chocolate shop is offering an array of gourmet ganache squares and special desserts like Valentine’s Day-themed Chocolate Lollipops and Raspberry and Dark Chocolate Marshmallows. One of the special ganache squares being featured this year is Strawberries and Champagne featuring Cinderella’s Coach, and you can even order a chocolate ganache pairing with Rosa Regale.
In addition, locations all over Disney Springs are celebrating with special offerings. To find out all the details, check out Darcy Clark’s recent post about Valentine’s Day at Disney Springs!

This sundae has scoops of vanilla and strawberry ice cream and is topped with strawberry topping, a chocolate-dipped strawberry and pink peppermint whipped cream and comes served in a hand-made waffle cup. And for the smoothie lovers out there, a Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie will be available at Schmoozies!
It would be nice if Disneyland could get a few extras…always seems like DLR has hardly any cute or seasonal food. That’s the one thing I enjoyed about WDW more, the food selection is WAY bigger!
Wow. I don’t remember Disney offering this many Valentines Day specialties last year.
