Ranking Every Dessert Spot in Disney Springs

Disney Springs is the ultimate shopping and dining center at Walt Disney World. Over the past few years, Disney Springs has added loads of restaurants that are dedicated to sweet treats and scrummy desserts. In fact, we’ve seen two major dessert locations open in just the last couple of months!

Gideon’s Original Chocolate Chip Cookie

To help you plan your next cheat day, we’re ranking every dessert spot located in Disney Springs!

#10 Sprinkles

Don’t get us wrong. Sprinkles makes a mean cupcake! The company bakes up a variety of flavors like Cannoli, Oreo, and Pumpkin Spice throughout the year. They even have a fun Cupcake ATM for goodies on-the-go.

Sprinkles Cupcake

We’re listing it “last” because there are several Sprinkles locations outside of Disney Springs. You can find the cupcake shop in many major cities so we suggest trying something new if there’s a Sprinkles near you. If you must have a Sprinkles Cupcake, give that ATM a try!

#9 Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop

When it comes to killer sundaes, Ghiradelli is (ahem) the cherry on top. Their chocolate is the bomb, and they make some incredible desserts with it. We wouldn’t say no to a dessert from Ghiradelli!


Much like Sprinkles, the chocolate from Ghirardelli can be found in most grocery stores. They also have several sundae shops around the country, too. However, if you’re craving a hot fudge sundae at Disney Springs, this is your best bet!

#8 The Ganachery

This teeny-tiny chocolate shop makes teeny-tiny chocolate truffles. The chocolates are fresh and decadent. We absolutely stopping by to watch the Chocolatiers make truffles in the window. Their gourmet Housemade S’mores are worth a try!

Ganachery Truffles

The Ganachery makes great chocolate. However, there are a lot of places that make over-the-top desserts and give you a bigger bang for your buck. Plus, we get that not everyone loves chocolate (although, admittedly, we can not relate).

#7 Marketplace Snacks

This Quick Service spot is where you’ll find the world-famous Dole Whip at Disney Springs. This location is also where you can get the awesome Dole Whip Nachos. You heard us right! The nachos are made with waffle cone pieces topped with Dole Whip, Mango Boba Pearls, pineapple, strawberry sauce, whipped cream, and rainbow sprinkles.

Outside of the Dole Whip Nachos, the dessert menu doesn’t have too much else to offer. BUT, it’s a great place for a Dole Whip fix!

#6 Aristocrepes

This small kiosk makes fresh crepes and giant bubble baffles. The crepes are filled with your choice of sweet or savory fillings. And the thick bubble waffles are usually piled high with ice creams and toppings.

Holiday Horchata, Crepe, and Bubble Waffle

The desserts here are very good and filling, and we love the contrast between warm, doughy waffle and sweet, tasty toppings. But it can be hard to find Artistocrepes, you know, open; typically it’s not open until four in the afternoon, though you might see them serving up crepes at noon on busier days. Because it’s not as convenient as other spots, it’s #6 on our list.

#5 Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC

Vegans and those who eat gluten-free should put Erin McKenna’s at the top of their lists! The bakery makes fresh cookies, cakes, and more treats every day. Here, you’ll find huge gluten-free cake slices and gorgeous vegan cupcakes! In fact, this is an allergen-free spot, so if you’re avoiding dairy, eggs, gluten, and more, you may want to stop in to stock up for the duration of your vacay.

Erin McKenna’s Churro and Chocolate Cupcake

Plus, the menu switches up constantly. You’ll most likely find new seasonal treats and flavors when you visit! It’s a great place for people with dietary restrictions and even for those who don’t!

#4 Vivoli il Gelato

Gelato is the main attraction at Vivoli in Disney Springs. The shop offers a huge selection of flavors from regular chocolate to rich black cherry. They can also whip you up a Cookie Sandwich with your choice of gelato filling and cookies!

Tiramisu Push Pop from Vivoli il Gelato

Those who love really sweet desserts will love Vivoli! Although, if you’re not really an ice cream fan, you might want to try another spot.

P.S. The restaurant also owns a small gelato cart that sits near World of Disney; you can grab a cup of gelato while you shop!

P.P.S. You may also spot a gelato cart poolside at Riviera Resort if you happen to be staying or visiting the resort!

#3 Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew

Everglazed is very new to Disney Springs, and we’re welcoming this wacky donut shop with open arms! This restaurant bakes fresh donuts made with fun toppings like bacon, cereal, and candy pieces. To top it all off, you can order a cup of Reese’s Peanut Butter Nitro cold brew.

Fruity Pebbles Donut

We’re big fans of the fun concoctions Everglazed is baking up since its opening last month! It’s especially great for breakfast as there aren’t too many places open early at Disney Springs. Plus, it’s like eating dessert for breakfast which we wholeheartedly embrace.

#2 Amorette’s Patisserie

Amorette’s has some of the best-tasting desserts at Disney World. Each offering is made with incredible ingredients and created with care. This is where you go if you want to experience a decadent dessert that is innovative and super tasty. Indulgent is the word we would use to describe Amorette’s.

WandaVision Petite Cake

While the desserts are so good, they’re also pretty spendy. Many people aren’t willing to spend $16 on a petit cake (even a really good petit cake!). The cost of the desserts is the reason we put Amorette’s in second place rather than first, where its quality would otherwise place it.

#1 Gideon’s Bakehouse

Ever since the bakery held a soft opening in December, people can’t get enough of these treats! Guests were willing to wait 11 hours for Gideon’s half-pound cookies on opening day. We’d have to agree that the enormous cookies, cake slices, and superb Peanut Butter Cold Brew are what makes Gideon’s tough dessert competition!

Also, the prices are really good for a restaurant in Disney World. The cookies are packed with toppings and/or fillings and cost $6. The cake slices can feed at least 2-3 people and cost $8. Plus, you can buy a small tub of their signature icing for only $1.50. The prices are hard to beat, and the treats are most excellent. (Also, the wait hasn’t reached 11 hours since opening day, and there’s a virtual queue so you don’t have to stand in line. Don’t worry!)

Honorable Mentions

We should also give an honorable mention to Goofy’s Candy Co. and Candy Cauldron. The two candy shops make all the Disney treats you could ever want. You’ll find most of the desserts in the theme parks so we suggest trying somewhere different while visiting Disney Springs!

  1. If people are waiting hours to get into Gideons bakehouse there must be a good reason. That reason is taste. Or possibly size. Or possibly taste and size. Wish I could leave ten degree snowy Upstate New York and sample it all. Let’s face it, some Disney desserts are made for photo ops. Way too over the top fancy. It’s already bad for you, do we need an edible tiny Wandavision TV set? It’s too much! Now let’s get back to Gideons. Do they send them out by mail? I have to have one. That giant, heavy one with the chocolate chips pressed into every area of its surface. Or maybe that decadent cake slice. Don’t worry! I won’t eat it all at once. I could stretch it out for at least a few hours. Nothing to do here in my frigid environment except dream of filling up on ten thousand calories of delicious ness. Gideons, start franchising
