Must Try Ice Cream Locations at Disneyland Resort
Planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort this summer? Brace yourself for the Southern California heat! What better to cool you down on a hot summer day than with a big scoop of ice cream! Between Disneyland and California Adventure, there are a number of places you can get this tasty treat! These locations are some of my favorites, and I hope they’ll be yours too!
Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop
Is your inner chocolate lover calling? Here at Ghirardelli’s, you can get more than just a free chocolate sample when you walk in! When I first visited, I thought I would be entering a chocolate shop. Little did I know the amazing ice cream options that awaited me! If you have time to sit and relax I would suggest one of their banana splits or sundaes! I had their World Famous Hot Fudge Sundae which just looks too beautiful to eat, but nonetheless, it was gone in minutes! Feel free to take a milkshake or even just a scoop of ice cream on the go! Portion sizes are huge so you can definitely share, and you can substitute any of the ice creams if the one listed isn’t quite what you wanted!
Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream
Whether you’re just walking into California Adventure or about to head out, make sure you stop at Clarabelle’s on Buena Vista Street! Here is where you can get the beloved “Kitchen Sink!” At first glance, you may think it doesn’t look like a lot of ice cream, but it is more than enough and is great to share with your friends and family! There’s a variety of sundaes, such as, Mint Chocolate Chip, Strawberry, Mocha Almond Fudge, and more which you can have in a “Kitchen Sink” or not! I tried my first “Kitchen Sink” and went with the Strawberry Sundae! To my friend’s dismay I ended up eating most of it, but I highly recommend trying one! In addition to these amazing sundaes you can get hand-dipped ice cream bars, just choose your flavor, chocolate coating, and topping!
Cozy Cone Motel
In a previous post about Cars Land, I mentioned the Cozy Cone Motel which has a variety of different on the go snacks. My personal favorite is the soft-serve cone at Cozy Cone 2! As much as I love a good sundae or a big scoop of ice cream, a simple chocolate and vanilla swirl soft-serve is the way to go sometimes! Perfect when you need to get to your FastPass return or to have with you when you stand in line!
Tiki Juice Bar
Making your way over to Disneyland? No trip is complete without a Dole Whip soft-serve at the Tiki Juice Bar! Has the heat got you down? Just need a few minutes to rest? Grab yourself a Dole Whip and head inside the Tiki Room! Nothing beats a great show, air conditioning, and a delicious treat to cool you down!
Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
Last, but certainly not least, is the iconic Mickey Ice Cream Bar! Whether you’re in California Adventure or Disneyland, make sure you stop at any ice cream cart and grab yourself one! Although there are many other tasty ice cream treats in the Disneyland Resort, these are my recommendations! What’s your favorite ice cream treat?
