The apple is being celebrated this fall at Disney Parks. Growing up, autumn meant an annual field trip to a local farm to pick apples. There’s no denying that pumpkin is having a moment right now, but I wanted to pay tribute to the other fruit that makes me think of crisp fall leaves – the apple. We love to enjoy apples on salads, in baked goods and on top of fluffy pancakes. Here are our top choices for yummy apple treats at Disney Parks and Resorts:
Apple Crisp a la Mode – Hollywood Scoops, Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Perfect for the Florida heat, this treat features cinnamon apples topped with old-fashioned vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce and streusel.
Apple Walnut Cake – California Grill, Disney’s Contemporary Resort – A new addition to the California Grill lineup—heirloom apple, fig and cherry compote, roasted white chocolate mousse, apple-caramel sauce, candied walnuts and brown sugar ice cream make one deliciously decadent dessert.
Red’s Apple Freeze – Cozy Cone Motel, Disney California Adventure – Get your kicks on Route 66 with Red’s Apple Freeze… souvenir sipper optional. Ka-chow!
Warm Glazed Doughnut – Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant, Disney’s Hollywood Studios – This doughnut is stacked with cinnamon apples, and topped with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel sauce… out of this world!
