WOO-HOO! Today is Ice Cream Day – although many of us feel that every day should be Ice Cream Day! 

In honor of this very special occasion, we have a recipe for you to make at home – the refreshing Island Navigator (made with ice cream, of course!) from our friends at Disney Cruise Line. We are also dishing up our favorite distinctly Disney frozen treats from around the world – past and present. Enjoy!

  • I have been away from home and just read the news that you were haring the pineapple Dole Whip recipe. Where can I find that? Is it too late to get it?

  • What flavors are the Seasonal Ice Cream Flavors from Plaza Ice Cream Parlor at Magic Kingdom Park? Especially the one in the picture with Mickey ears.

  • Love all the recipes, thank you for sharing. Is it possible to add a print-at-home-version of the Crema Catalana so I can complete my collection?

  • Is that really coconut cream in the recipe, or cream of coconut? The former is unsweetened and typically used in Thai cuisine. The latter is sweetened and used in tropical drinks like the Painkiller and Piña Colada. I only ask because they are not a one-to-one substitute.
