Disney World Now Serving Cronuts

The mouse is jumping on the cronut craze bandwagon; Epcot will now be offering cronuts à la mode at Epcot’s Refreshment Port in Disney World
Cronuts and ice cream? That's what's on the menu at Disney's Epcot. Count us in.

Here’s the new Mickey Mouse Club theme song for you: C-R-O-N-U-T M-O-U-S-E. Yes, even Disney is jumping on the cronut bandwagon that began last summer when Dominique Ansel’s bakery began selling those delicious (and impossible to get) croissant-doughnut combinations. Now the cronut à la mode is available at Epcot’s Refreshment Port at the World Showcase in Disney World.

Dipped in cinnamon and sugar, the Disney croissant/doughnut creation sounds a little bit more like round churro. The treat is topped with ice cream and is actually listed unassumingly as a “croissant doughnut” for $4.99 on the menu ($5.79 with ice cream).

The Disney food blog just tried the sweet and savory creation and said, “the layers were super buttery — and not flaky…also a little gummy.”

Dominique Ansel Bakery, home of the original cronut, just re-opened this week after being shut down due to a mouse infestation. So as it turns out, Ansel’s long-tailed visitors aren’t the only mice to love the cronut.
