Mother’s Day Sweets Arrive This Weekend at Disney World Resorts and Parks

Mothers Day Sweets and Treats are arriving today across Disney World!

The Mother’s Day Cake at The Grand Floridian

The Grand Floridian bakes up a cake that suits this elegant resort well.

Welcome to the Mimosa Miniature Gateau Golden Sponge Cake.

This delicate dessert is topped with a large white chocolate Cinderella slipper, decorative rose, and a few crispy pearls.

Inside you will find a generous layer of Mimosa-flavored mousse. The golden vanilla sponge cake balances well with the adult-flavored filling; a dessert fit for a queen.

Warning, it contains alcohol, but just a touch.

Promoted as an Individual serving size, but it is certainly big enough to share.

Find at Gasparilla Island Grill for $7.99

Grand Floridian Resort, access from outside on patio

Plenty of seating outdoors and a few indoor options

Mobile order only at this time

Comes in a plastic-domed to go container in a to-go bag

In honor of National Gingerbread Day, Food and Beverage Content Relations Manager, Karen McClintock, shared this recipe for Disney’s Gingerbread-Cream Cheese Muffins today on the Disney Parks Blog:

“Let’s face it, the scent and taste of freshly baked gingerbread screams HOLIDAY, and this spiced gingerbread muffin with cream cheese filling is the perfect bundle of holiday goodness!”

Time to add some ground ginger and a jar of molasses to your shopping list and your kitchen will be smelling magical in under an hour.

Or, you can find these gingerbread muffins in Animal Kingdom at two Quick Service locations. The first spot being the Isle of Java, next to the Flame Tree Grill, which sits just before the bridge to DinoLand. There’s an abundance of outdoor seating nearby on the terrace to take a seat and enjoy your holiday treat.

The second location is Harambe Fruit Market, located directly in front of Kilimanjaro Safaris. Book a fast pass for the Safari and snack on the muffins while you wait, or enjoy them seated on one of the umbrella tables next to Harambe if you can grab a spot. 

These seasonal Gingerbread-Cream Cheese Muffins are available in Animal Kingdom from December 1st through January 2nd or in your own kitchen any time you wish!
