REVIEW: Celebrate “Magic Happens” with the New Dulce de Leche Sundae at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor in Disneyland
Magic is happening today with the debut of the newest daytime spectacular, “Magic Happens”, at Disneyland park. With the help of Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios, this incredible new parade comes to life with stunning floats, energetic music, artistic costumes, and now, thanks to some fabulous Disneyland chefs, a few deliciously magical eats and treats.
These brand new bites were created to celebrate the latest addition to the park’s lineup of fun entertainment offerings. Since the parade marches right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A., it’s only fitting that these items can be found at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor, Refreshment Corner, and Jolly Holiday Bakery Café. Let’s take a look at the new ice cream sundae available at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor!
Dulce de Leche Sundae – $6.99
This ice cream sundae, served in a dark blue waffle bowl, has two scoops of delicious dulce de leche ice cream, bananas, caramel drizzle, and a Mickey-shaped sugar cookie. Of course, it wouldn’t be an ice cream sundae without whipped cream and a cherry on top!
The ice cream has a pleasant taste. The ice cream’s dulce de leche and sweet cream were smoothly blended, creating the right amount of sweetness. The whipped cream is light and not too sugary. It adds a bit more creaminess to the dessert as a whole. The waffle bowl was wonderfully crisp.
The dessert’s banana component was nothing special. They were plain bananas and lacked any special seasoning to make them stand out. Honestly, we wouldn’t have missed them if they had been left off the dessert.
The cookie was our favorite part of the dessert. While the menu description said “sugar cookie,” this cookie reminded us more of short bread. The top of the cookies was served coated in powdered sugar. It was baked perfectly, crisp on the outside and edges while maintaining a soft inside.
We highly recommend the Dulce de Leche Ice Cream Sundae. We think it’s the perfect sweet treat for anyone wanting to celebrate “Magic Happens” at the Disneyland Resort. Will you be trying this new ice cream sundae? Let us know in the comments!
