    What is the "best dessert" at Disneyworld? I have very low blood sugar and need sugar every day. It actually gets annoying believe it or not. However, what is different and delicious and not to be missed!

    Hi Catherine,

    Finding delicious treats at Walt Disney World is pretty easy! Let's start off with the parks:

    Magic Kingdom: My favorite treat is the pineapple dolewhip found at Aloha Isle. Have it by itself or in a float with pineapple juice.  Also really popular are the ice cream sandwiches made with warm Nestle Toll House cookies found at Sleepy Hollow.  If neither of those do it for you, stop by Main Street Bake Shop.  You're sure to find something to hit the spot.

    Epcot: kakigori (shaved ice) in Japan, crepes in France, school bread in Norway.  There are so many delicious desserts here.

    Hollywood Studios: PB&J Shake at 50s Prime Time Cafe is awesome!  Grapefruit Cake at Brown Derby is another favorite.  I've also heard rave reviews about the carrot cake cookie at Writer's Stop.

    I don't have a favorite from Animal Kingdom. We usually opt for fresh fruit from the Harambe Fruit Stand.

    Any of the ice cream treats at Beaches & Cream are delicious, but The Kitchen Sink is the ultimate experience: 8 scoops of ice cream, every topping in the house and an entire can of whipped-cream!

    Some of the most unique desserts are found at Kona Cafe in the Polynesian resort.  However, my favorite treat there is not actually dessert, it's breakfast.  Tonga Toast is the ultimate sweet way to start your day.

    At the Grand Floridian restaurants, you can order Cinderella's Chocolate Slipper.  It is a white chocolate slipper filled with cream & raspberries.  This dessert must be pre-ordered 48 hours in advance, so plan ahead.

    Finally, head to Goofy's Candy Company in Downtown Disney.  You can create your own chocolate dipped confections: apples, oreos, marshmallows, crisped rice can be customized to your liking - YUM!

    Hope this helps raise your blood sugar. Have a magical vacation!
