- The Mickey sandwiches are the best ice-cream snack at Disney World.
- Mickey’s premium ice-cream bars melt a lot faster than the sandwiches.
- I like to mobile-order the ice-cream sandwiches at the end of the day as a late-night snack.
The Mickey premium ice-cream bars at the Disney parks get a lot of attention — and selfies.
It’s a solid ice-cream option, but there’s a way more under-the-radar treat modeled after the famous mouse that I think is better.
Enjoying a Mickey ice-cream sandwich requires a little patience, but it’s always worth it for me
A Mickey’s premium ice-cream sandwich has cookies-and-cream ice cream sandwiched between two soft chocolate cookies embossed with Mickey Mouse’s face.
It’s typically served rock hard, but it doesn’t take long for it to warm up a bit in the hot Florida sun at Disney World. After impatiently waiting for a few minutes, it’s time to dive in to take that first bite.
The ice cream is cold and refreshing, and the cookies look adorable with Mickey’s face on them.
I always start by eating an ear because it’s easier, but no matter how you eat it, a Mickey ice-cream sandwich is always worth waiting in line for.
If I’m staying at a Walt Disney World resort, I can also get my beloved ice-cream sandwich from many of the quick-service restaurants.
I like to mobile-order it through the My Disney Experience app on my way back from the theme park, so I can pick it up on my way to my room and enjoy it as a late-night snack while I watch Mickey Mouse cartoons.
On the rare occasion when I’m staying in a Disney Vacation Club villa where there’s a freezer, I mobile-order the ice-cream sandwich at breakfast, throw it in the freezer, and have it right when I get back from the parks.
There’s no comparison between the ice-cream sandwich and the standard premium bar
A Mickey’s premium ice-cream bar is plain vanilla ice cream dunked in a chocolate shell and served on a stick.
Unlike the sandwich, it’s ready to eat right when you get it. But it also melts super quickly, making enjoying the treat a race against the Florida sun.
If I tried my mobile-order trick for the ice-cream bar, there’s a good chance it’d be at least partially melted by the time I got to my room.
