Monstrous sweet treats for this week’s Limited Time Magic Surprise

You can enjoy monstrous sweet treats as part of this week’s Limited Time Magic at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and the Disneyland Resort in California. These cool treats are worth a visit to the Disneyland Resort or the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort for a little “Limited Time Magic” fun now through August 4, 2013.

The Disneyland Resort sundae has two scoops of mint chip ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, sprinkles, a candy eye, and horns in a crisp waffle cup. You can find this treat at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor in Disneyland park and Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream at Disney California Adventure park. This sundae costs $6.99 plus tax.

At the Magic Kingdom, you can try one of (or all) four variations on the theme: a parfait-glass sundae at Plaza Restaurant that comes in either mint chocolate chip or vanilla-strawberry ($6.99 plus tax), or a slightly smaller version of both at Plaza Ice Cream Cone Shop ($5.29 plus tax). How can you resist two scoops of ice cream drizzled with hot fudge, topped with whipped cream and adorned with chocolate cookie horns, a white chocolate eye “lollipop,” chocolate sprinkles and a fresh strawberry?

Both treats are great for monstrous photo opportunities – and then even better for digging in!

These sweet treats are just part of Disney’s Monstrous Summer, which features merchandise, food and beverages, and a monstrous lineup of attractions, shows and events, inspired by Disney-Pixar’s “Monsters University.”

Siera is a Disney travel specialist and would love to help you plan your next Disney parks vacation. Don’t miss out on the limited time magic surprises all year at Disney World and Disneyland.
