Here is the first of three cruise tips for your next Disney Cruise sailing. Tip #1: the Mickey Ice Cream Bar. There are many great things about cruising on a Disney ship: the food, the service, and the Disney characters. But in this series of blogs, we will focus on the food. The Mickey Ice Cream tip is included here, but I would like to hear your tips as well. Will you please add yours in the reply section below?
The first visible opportunity for a Mickey ice cream bar is on the children’s menu in any of the evening dining restaurants. On the first night, our kids ordered one. The ice cream arrived, in the shape of Mickey Mouse on a stick, covered entirely in frozen chocolate. It is similar to a Dove Bar or an Eskimo Pie. The ice cream looked good, but I thought it was just for kids, right? I need to stick to the more mature fare. Then the kids each bit off an ear of their ice cream. Decadent vanilla ice cream appeared beneath the thick, chocolaty candy shell. It looked like heaven. The vanilla was creamy and smooth. The chocolate smelled delightful, with its rich, tempting aroma.
I had to have one! I succumbed to the enticement and ordered a Mickey Ice Cream bar from the wait staff.
When my bar arrived, it tasted even better than it looked. The premium vanilla ice cream was coated with smooth, rich Nestle milk chocolate. It was the best thing since– I hate to say it but– sliced bread. It was so good, my husband started ordering the adult dessert and the Mickey Ice Cream with dinner each night. The bars are offered in a coating of plain chocolate or chocolate with candy sprinkles.
I also discovered that you don’t have to wait until the next dinner seating to get your Mickey Ice Cream fix. These luscious ice cream bars, while not on the room service menu, can be requested at no-charge, for delivery straight to your stateroom. We got so hooked on the ice cream bars, my husband and I ordered one from room service every night!
