    Hello! Is there an option to just order dessert from Narcoossee's and pick it up to go? We haven't had any luck getting a reservation yet that but the almond crusted cheesecake is one of my favorite parts of our trips to Disney. Thanks!

    Hello Christy!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When trying to obtain Advanced Dining Reservations for a hard-to-get Dining Location like Narcoossee's, my tried-and-true plan is to check the My Disney Experience App or the Dining Location page on the Walt Disney World site once a day. I have, more often than not, been able to take advantage of a cancellation.

    The Almond Crusted Cheesecake is the favorite dessert of many Guests who visit Walt Disney World Resort. It is so popular that I have seen numerous attempts to recreate the recipe on various third-party sites. When a Dining Location finds a dish that will keep the Guests coming back for more, they generally don't offer it at other locations or as a "grab and go" item.

    When they do, it is often at the Counter Service location at the same Walt Disney World Resort Hotel that the Signature Dish is served. This is the case for the Zebra Domes offered at Boma - Flavors of Africa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort which are offered at The Mara Quick Service dining location.

    The Almond Crusted Cheesecake is not offered at Gasparilla Island Grill.

    Good luck obtaining Advanced Dining Reservations!
