With all the holiday cheer, one of our favorite reasons is why it is the most wonderful time of the year: THE FOOD! We’re obsessed with all the tasty holiday treats in Orlando.

We’re sharing some of our faves so you can satisfy your festive cravings. So ring in this holiday season with our favorite holiday treats in Orlando!

1. Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies: The Christmas Cookie Milkshake is an out-of-this-world blended version of their Christmas cookie sundae (with cookie soft-serve and hot fudge) with a holiday twist. They add a dollop of whipped cream and festive holiday sprinkles to add color to this treat!

2. Sleepy Hollow Refreshments: The Ginger-Apple Pie Funnel Cake* is packed with fresh apple filling and their signature, fried dough crunchy crust. Topped with a hearty helping of vanilla ice cream to cool off your taste buds and put you into the winter holiday.

*Disney Very Merriest After Hours Exclusive

1. Rosie’s All-American Cafe and The Trolley Cafe: The Reindeer Mousse is an adorable spiced caramel cheesecake and peanut butter mousse sitting on top of a salty pretzel shortbread cookie. It’s finished with a little antler to make this treat look just like Santa’s fave reindeer.

2. Woody’s Lunchbox: Woody’s Lunchbox’s classic treat, the lunchbox tart, is getting a festive makeover. The Holiday Lunchbox Tart is like biting into a slice of homemade apple pie and is topped with a cinnamon frosting. And what’s a holiday dessert without holiday sprinkles?

3. PizzeRizzo: The Butterscotch Caramel Cannoli is the perfect dessert choice for anyone who likes a plan on a classic. The cannoli is filled with caramel cheesecake filling, butterscotch chips, and chocolate flakes—yum—and the edges are dipped in chocolate and covered in festive sprinkles for a finishing touch!

4. ABC Commissary, Backlot Express, Rosie’s All-American Cafe, and PizzeRizzo: It’s time for another play on a classic! The Frozen Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate can be found all over Disney’s Hollywood Studio and is the best way to enjoy hot chocolate in the Florida winter weather. It’s the perfect combo of frozen hot chocolate and salted caramel syrup and topped with marshmallows and chocolate syrup. Plus, add black cherry bourbon for a boozy treat!

1. Marketplace Snacks: We know peppermint bark and nacho don’t normally go together, but hear us out. The Peppermint Bark Nachos are killer. With waffle cone chips (“nachos”)—that, of course, are red and green—as the first layer, minty and chocolate ice cream as the second, and then topped off with a mixture of candy, whipped cream, fudge, and sprinkles! 

2. D-Luxe Burgers: Savor the flavors of the holiday but in burger form. The Holiday Burger is a turkey patty topped with a fried butternut squash risotto cake, bacon-cranberry jam, lettuce, and tomato. It combines all the best flavors of the holiday and transforms it into an all-American classic. 

3. Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Bar: This bar goes all out for the holidays, including their specialty menu items. Their Holiday Lights Deviled Eggs are a play on traditional deviled eggs and feature shrimp and tobiko! Plus they’re red, green, and white so what’s not to love!

4. Amorette’s Patisserie: The Holiday Mickey Mousse Mini Dome Cake is another masterpiece out of Amorette’s Patisserie! The Mini Cake is chocolate chiffon, dark chocolate mousse, white chocolate mousse, and decorated like Santa Mickey! Tasty and adorable!

1. Gingerbread Latte: Now, you can drink your favorite cookie. The Gingerbread Latte is the perfect combo of vanilla, gingerbread, and chai tea topped with whipped cream. It’s a little spicy and a little sweet, just like the holidays can be!

2. Apple Cider Mimosa: Take your brunch game to the next level with the Apple Cider Mimosa. This festive take on the classic comes with a brown sugar rim and will perfectly complement your choice of brunch item on Three Birds Cafe’s menu.

1. Peppermint Mocha Latte: If you’re like us and sit around waiting for the holidays to drop because peppermint is life, this Peppermint Mocha Latte is here to shine. The ultimate pairing of chocolate and peppermint comes together to really put you in the holiday spirit. 

2. Peppermint Mocha Cold Brew: The Peppermint Mocha Cold Brew is a slight variation on your fave holiday drink. Thanks to the cold brew, a little more bitterness is perfect for someone who doesn’t want all the sugar and cream that typically comes with a latte.

3. Eggnog Latte: We’re on team eggnog, so this latte is screaming our name. The Eggnog Latte is one part latte, one part eggnog, and 100% delicious. It’s not the holiday season without eggnog!

4. Gingerbread Latte: Everyone’s fave cookie is now available in your morning cup of joe. The Gingerbread Latte has all the spice and the sweetness that you love in a gingerbread cookie! This is the perfect drink to take to work in the morning to help you power through that 9-5!

1. Coquito: Go outside of the box this holiday season and order the Coquito! This drink is a combo of Puerto Rican eggnog and espresso to give you all the holiday feels and the caffeine needed to get you through the day.

2. White Peppermint Mocha: This play on the traditional peppermint mocha is perfect for anyone who likes it sweet. The White Peppermint Mocha hits the spot every time and is def one of our go-to’s when visiting Qreate!

3. Mistel-Ho: We can’t lie to you: part of the reason we love this drink is definitely because of the name. The Mistel-Ho has all the warm flavors of the holidays that you love: maple amoretto, orange, and nutmeg. It tastes like Christmas—you’re just going to have to try this one to believe it.

4. Brown Butta Latte: It doesn’t get better than the Brown Butta Latte. This is the tastiest combo of brown sugar and butter. So this holiday season, sip on one of these bad boys to keep you caffeinated and content.

5. Cabin Fever: This drink is for all the chai lovers out there. The Cabin Fever is a dirty, spicy chai latte that’s not for the faint of heart because this chai packs a spicy punch! The cream in the latte definitely keeps it from being overwhelming, but def a good recommendation for chai lovers.

6. Mr. & Mrs. Claus: Calling all couples: this is your new order. The Mr. & Mrs. Claus is, of course, his and her eggnog cappuccinos! So get your caffeine in while sipping on a holiday classic. And if you just wanted to order this for yourself and drink both lattes, we won’t tell anyone. 

7. Extended Car Warranty: We know this drink’s name doesn’t really tell you anything about it. But we’re loving the Extended Car Warranty, aka a s’mores latte! So transport yourself to a bonfire and toast up a marshmallow with this festive sip. 

Winter Flight: A coffee flight? Yup, you read that right! The Winter Flight at New City has all your favorite holiday flavors in one tasty flight. Sip on maple bacon, gingerbread cookie, white Christmas, and candy cane lattes! Share with a friend or keep all the festivities to yourself—we won’t judge! Plus, how cute is the flight? Def a solid order to add to your Insta story!
