    Hi ! I know this sounds like a silly question but is ice cream literally scoops of ice cream fried in oil? Also, is it on the dining plan?

    Fried ice cream really is fried ice cream. A block or scoop of ice cream is super-frozen (usually to a temperature that can only be achieve in a commercial kitchen, not at home). Then it is coated in some sort of batter. This batter will vary according to where the dish is prepared, but at WDW it is the same batter that's used for the funnel cakes (otherwise known as fried dough). The coated ice cream is indeed then placed into a deep fryer just until the coating is cooked, but before the ice cream melts. The result is unbelievably yummy -- crispy, sweet dough plus cool, silky ice cream. I highly recommend :-)

    The only places I know of at WDW that serve fried ice cream are the funnel cake huts at Blizzard Beach, Typhoon Lagoon, and the American Pavilion at Epcot. There are also funnel cake stands on the Boardwalk and in the Magic Kingdom, but I have not been able to get confirmation that they have fried ice cream there. Prices can change, but the most recent listing I have gives the cost of a fried ice cream to be $5.50. I do not see this listed as on the dining plan. However, the dining plan snack options do change from time to time, so it never hurts to ask.

    Happy eating!
