How to Special-Order a Cake at Walt Disney World

How to order a cake depends on what kind of cake you want and where you want to have it. Click the links below to skip to…

Podium cake with custom inscription at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney Restaurant Podium Cakes

If you’re OK with a simple supermarket-style cake in vanilla or chocolate, you can get one just by asking at the podium when you check in for your reservation at any Disney restaurant except Victoria & Albert’s. These 6-inch cakes serve 5 and cost $23 plus tax.

Basic Custom Cakes

With 48 hours’ notice, most restaurants also offer basic custom cakes in larger sizes and a limited range of flavors with basic decorations. If an 8-inch cake is offered, it will be available in chocolate or vanilla and cost $35 (serves 8). Ordering a 10-inch cake ($49, serves 16) will get you more flavor choices—usually vanilla, chocolate or marble cake filled with vanilla buttercream, chocolate buttercream, white chocolate mousse, dark chocolate mousse, strawberry mousse, or raspberry mousse and covered in vanilla or chocolate buttercream or whipped cream. Sheet cakes are available in 1/4 ($55, serves 25), 1/2 ($80, serves 50) and full ($120, serves 100) sizes. The price of adding a screen-printed image to a cake varies by location and ranges from as little as $2 to as much as $35—and at some places it’s free!

Mickey Mouse cake at BoardWalk Bakery

Most restaurants also offer a Mickey Mouse cake in the shape of his head bearing a screen print of his face for $52. It serves 10–12 people, is available in white or chocolate cake with chocolate filling, and is covered in chocolate ganache. Although the cake cannot be customized, you can have a message written on the serving plate. At restaurants serviced by the Contemporary Resort Bakery, the Mickey Mouse cake may be covered in piped buttercream frosting rather than a coating of chocolate ganache.

Fancy Fondant-Covered Cakes & Mini Cakes

If you’re looking for an elaborate fondant-covered cake, a mini cake, or cakes in nonstandard flavors, only the bakeries at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the Contemporary Resort, BoardWalk Inn, Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Yacht & Beach Club and Epcot offer these, and only BoardWalk Bakery will let you pick up a cake. Note: The bakery at Animal Kingdom Lodge will not make mini cakes or fancy fondant cakes smaller than 10 inches.

Custom cake at the Contemporary Resort

However, if you’re staying or dining at the Polynesian Resort, you can get a fancy cake by calling Private Dining at the Grand Floridian. For fancy cakes at the Magic Kingdom, Wilderness Lodge, and Fort Wilderness, call Private Dining at the Contemporary. At Epcot, only restaurants serviced by the Epcot food and beverage team offer fancy cakes; restaurants in Mexico, China, Italy, Japan, Morocco, and France are serviced by outside vendors. Fancy cakes are also available at Caribbean Beach, Old Key West, Pop Century, and Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, which are serviced by BoardWalk Bakery, and at Art of Animation, which is serviced bythe Yacht & Beach Club. For these resorts, call the Cake Hotline and follow the prompts for your resort to place your order. You can pick up your cake at the restaurant or food court; many resorts will even deliver it to your room. Complete details on the cake choices and prices at each park and resort can be found on the Disney Cake Options By Location page.

To order, call Walt Disney World’s Cake-Ordering Hotline at 407-827-2253.

At this time, Disney has no email address you can write to with a cake inquiry, and there is no Disney-run web site showing cake options and prices. When ordering a fancy custom cake, you may run into difficulty with Private Dining cast members who are not aware of the bakery’s capabilities. Politely ask to speak to the pastry chef directly so that you can get the official word on cake options.

FAQ

How do I order a cake at ______________ ?
Call the Cake-Ordering Hotline at 407-827-2253.

Is there a web site for viewing cake choices?
Not at this time. You can see photos of the standard custom cakes on this page. The best resource for photos of unique fancy Disney cakes is the DIS Boards’ Cake Chatter Thread.

Is there an email address for ordering cakes?
Only the Contemporary (WDW.Contemporary.Cake.Order@disney.com) and the Magic Kingdom (magickingdomcakes@disney.com) have public email addresses for placing cake orders. For all other locations, you will need to call to place your order. It is sometimes possible to request an individual cast member’s email address so that you can send in a cake photo.

Can I get a cake delivered to my room?
At resorts that offer Private Dining, yes. For any other resort, follow the prompts on the Cake Hotline to speak with someone at your resort about the availability of delivery.

Can I pick up a cake somewhere?
Only the BoardWalk Bakery offers the option to pick up a cake, and only with at least 72 hours’ notice (standard 6-inch cakes like those available at restaurant podiums can be purchased with no notice). If you’re staying at a resort that gets its cakes from BoardWalk Bakery, you can pick up a custom cake at the resort food court or restaurant by placing the order with the resort via the Cake Hotline.

Can I get a cake at Downtown Disney?
There are no longer any Disney-owned restaurants at Downtown Disney, which means you’ll have to phone each restaurant individually to see whether it offers custom cakes.

No more than 4 weeks ahead and no less than 72 hours ahead.

What size cake do I need for my group?

  • 6-inch serves 5

Options vary by location, but there is always chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and vanilla cake with vanilla frosting. See our Disney Cake Options By Location page or call the Cake Hotline to speak to someone about the options where you are staying or dining.

What if I want red velvet/carrot cake/something besides chocolate or vanilla?
Most bakeries have limited flavor options, but Deluxe resort bakeries, Epcot and the Magic Kingdom can accommodate certain special requests. Your best bet is to be staying or dining at the Grand Floridian, whose bakery is responsible for most of the wedding cakes on property.

For the Magic Kingdom, place your order through the Cake-Ordering Hotline at 407-827-2253. For Epcot, place your order through Epcot’s Food and Beverage department: 407-560-6395.

I got married at Walt Disney World. How do I get a re-creation of the top layer of our wedding cake?
Contact Private Dining at the Grand Floridian. If your wedding was in the last five years, they can access your BEO to get an exact description of the cake. Otherwise, you can submit photos to help them replicate your cake. Alternatively, BoardWalk Bakery can replicate any of the standard Escape Collection cake designs.

Is the frosting buttercream or whipped cream?
Standard 6-inch cakes are frosted in buttercream, while custom-ordered cakes may be available in a choice of buttercream or whipped cream.

I don’t like the taste of fondant but I want an elaborate cake. What should I do?
Disney’s cakes come with a layer of buttercream underneath the fondant and can be served with the fondant removed. You can also specify whether you want vanilla or chocolate buttercream underneath the fondant.

Which characters can I get on my cake?
Any character from the extended Disney family (Muppets, Pixar, Disney Junior, et al.) except Winnie the Pooh & Friends. (Note: Awareness of this rule varies, so if you want Pooh, it never hurts to ask.) Characters cannot be sculpted 3-D, they must be rendered as a flat screen print directly on the cake or on a standing piece of white chocolate. The exceptions are the white chocolate character statues available for an additional charge at certain Deluxe resorts. Alternatively, you may be able to work with the bakery to provide your own plastic figurines to be placed on the cake.

Which white chocolate characters are available?
In general, white chocolate characters are only available at the locations that offer fancy, fondant-covered cakes (see Disney Cake Options By Location page). Prices are $15–$65, depending on size and resort, and figures can be fully painted for an additional charge. The selection varies by location, with the Grand Floridian offering the widest variety. Check with the bakery at the resort where you want to order the character.

Fully painted and gold-tipped white chocolate characters

  • Mickey
  • Minnie
  • Donald
  • Goofy
  • Pluto
  • Chip
  • Dale
  • Belle

  • Anniversary Mickey & Minnie
  • Dark chocolate 3-inch Mickey or Minnie
  • Lightning McQueen
  • Tow Mater


Can I get a cake shaped like something besides a circle or a square?
The Grand Floridian is your best bet for a specially shaped cake, although the Contemporary and the Yacht & Beach Club may be able to do certain styles.

Can I send in a picture of what I want?
Once you make contact with a Disney cast member through the Cake Hotline, you can work with him or her to e-mail photos to the pastry chef.

Where can I get a mini cake?
The Grand Floridian, the Contemporary, Yacht & Beach Club and BoardWalk Inn or any location serviced by these bakeries.

The mini-castle cake, a specific style of mini cake, is available only at restaurants and resorts serviced by the Grand Floridian and Contemporary bakeries

Where can I get a mini-castle cake?
The Grand Floridian or the Contemporary and any location serviced by these bakeries.

Where can I get the chocolate Cinderella Slipper Dessert?
The Cinderella Slipper Dessert is available at the Grand Floridian, the Contemporary Resort, and Cinderella’s Royal Table at the Magic Kingdom. It is usually white chocolate, but Cinderella’s Royal Table occasionally offers it in milk chocolate.

What if someone in my party has dietary restrictions?
In general, Disney will do its best to accommodate dietary restrictions like allergies, but it’s best to call to find out your options. All Disney-owned restaurants offer a vegan, allergen-free cake in chocolate or vanilla for $29. For details, a photo and an ingredient list, CLICK HERE. Alternatively, vegan bakery Babycakes NYC at Downtown Disney delivers two-layer 6-inch cakes (serves 8–10) to restaurants on Disney property. Call 855-462-2292 at least one week in advance to order. Babycakes offers gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, casein-free, egg-free, vegan and kosher baked goods.


Will the restaurant hold my leftover cake until the end of the night?
Disney’s official policy forbids this as a food-safety precaution, but some guests have been able to get Disney restaurants to hold their leftover cake. Just don’t count on it.

How do I order a cake at the Walt Disney World Swan or Dolphin?
These resorts are not owned by Disney, so you must call them directly at 407-934-1614 to place an order at least 48 hours in advance.

Cake Flavors:
Intense Chocolate
Vanilla Bean
Raspberry Vanilla
Strawberry Shortcake

Cake Sizes and Prices:
6” cake (5 to 7 people ): $42 and up
8” cake (10 to 12 people): $65 and up
10” cake (14 to 16 people): $89 and up
1/2 sheet cake (25 to 30 people): $185 and up
Full Sheet cake (54 to 60 people): $380 and up

 

How do I order a cake at Disneyland?
Disneyland has a much smaller operation, with one central bakery that makes the cakes for all the resorts and full-service restaurants in the parks. They only offer 6-inch cakes ($33) or 10-inch cakes ($52), along with quarter ($67), half ($92) and full ($132) sheet cakes. A 19% service charge is added for cakes delivered to Disney resort rooms. Disney requires 48 hours’ notice for all custom cakes.

  • Cake Flavors: vanilla, chocolate, red velvet or carrot
  • Filling Flavors: vanilla custard, cream cheese (red velvet cake only), whipped cream, white or dark chocolate mousse or chocolate ganache
  • Frostings: whipped cream, buttercream, chocolate ganache or chocolate mousse

To place an order if you are staying at a Disney resort, call 1-714-300-7526 and select Option #2. To place an order if you are not staying at a Disney resort, call Disney Dining at 1-714-781-3463.

Yes! They don’t do custom work, but you can use this order form to select from a handful of options.

How do you order the flat screen character cake? Do you provide the image you want transfered to the cake, or do you ask what character you want and they pick the image? Thanks!

Reply

Carrie August 2, 2013 at 4:34 PM

You can do it either way. They should have a library of approved art to choose from, but if you have a specific image you want, ask for an email address to send it to.

Hi Sophia! I do not work for Disney so I cannot place a cake order for you. For the Crystal Palace you need to call the Cake Hotline at 407-827-2253 and follow the prompts for the Magic Kingdom to leave a message, and someone will call you back. You can also email them at magickingdomcakes@disney.com. Hope this helps!

Hi Carrie! Heading to The Polynesian this weekend and wonder if I can pick up a ready made cake that’s not the “podium type”. Will GF or Contemporary have something done in their bakery/quick service area by chance? THANK YOU!!!

Reply

Carrie August 5, 2013 at 10:48 AM

Unfortunately, none of the counter-service places at the Deluxe resorts stock cakes (and if they did, they’d be podium cakes like the ones at the Value Resort food courts). Your closest option would be the bakery at the Magic Kingdom, but, come to think of it, those are podium cakes too. BoardWalk Bakery seems to be the only one that keeps different kinds of cakes on hand. You have time to order a custom one though, and the Contemporary and/or the GF might let you pick it up at The Wave/Gasparilla Grill. (At least, they have in the past.)

Reply

Stephanie August 5, 2013 at 10:58 AM

Thank you so much for your quick reply! I will call and order then & hope to pick up at one of their spots. THANK YOU!!!

I would like to request a cake for my daughters 21st birthday in September.
We will be dining at the Yachtsman steakhouse, will it be possible to have it delivered there?
Also what kind of things can you request on the standard cake? Is it just a name?
I would be interested in a white chocolate character, how much would this be for either 6/8 inch cake?
There will be 6 of us but don’t want a big cake as past experience of too much cake can be overwhelming, so thinking of just going for 6inch. What are your thoughts?
Many thanks, Michelle

Reply

Carrie August 14, 2013 at 11:04 AM

This page has the number to call to order a cake for the Yacht & Beach Club. They will probably tell you they can’t put a white chocolate figure on a 6-inch cake, but they could put it on the plate next to the cake. White chocolate character prices vary by resort, but Y&BC is on the high side—I’d figure on about $50. A 6-inch cake is plenty for 6 people. Designwise, you’d really need to talk to the pastry chef or at least the Private Dining contact to find out what’s possible. It helps if you can send in a photo of what you want.

Can you order a cake for a guest’s room? I have friends staying at the GF in October for their anniversary. Can I order something to be delivered to their room?

Reply

Carrie August 29, 2013 at 2:14 PM

Yes, as long as they are checked in when you want to have it delivered. Also, usually it is charged to the guest’s room account, so you’d need to be sure that Private Dining understood they needed to charge your credit card for the cake (and then have your friends doublecheck their room bill just in case).

Susan September 10, 2013 at 8:02 PM

Hi! Am looking into a Memories wedding at the Polynesian. A cake is not included in the package but was wondering if we can get 6 mini wedding cakes in the Mickey design to go along with a meal at one of the restaurants later. If so, do you get choices in flavors? Thanks for any info!

Reply

Carrie September 11, 2013 at 6:29 PM

Yes, it just depends on where your meal is. For the Polynesian, those minicakes would be made by the Grand Floridian and cost $35+ (also, they feed two people each, if you’re looking to save a bit of money). The private dining contact at the GF with whom you would place your order is notoriously stingy about flavors, so you’d probably only be offered chocolate cake with chocolate filling or vanilla cake with vanilla filling. But sometimes you can get them to agree to more interesting flavors as long as you understand that they’re only available if the bakery happens to be making them for someone’s wedding cake that day. I’ve had good luck getting mini cakes in other flavors from the BoardWalk Bakery and the Contemporary. But you’d have to pick up at the former or be dining/staying at the latter.

Hi! Would it be possible to get a white chocolate figure delivered to Tusker House? Or even a mini cake? We are staying at the Beach Club Villas and having breakfast at Tusker House and dinner at Chef Mickeys. I’d prefer to have my son’s cake at Tusker House since it would be something different. (We’ve been fortunate enough to celebrate my son’s past 3 bdays at Chef Mickeys, and we get his cake delivered there) Thanks for the help! :)

Reply

Carrie September 14, 2013 at 4:14 PM

Animal Kingdom’s cakes are made by Hollywood Studios’ pastry team, which is very limited in what it can do. Last time I checked, things like, chocolate figures, mini cakes and fondant were not available. But it doesn’t hurt to call Tusker House and see (407-938-3243). Epcot recently got a real-live pastry chef, so maybe DHS has one now too.

Hi Carrie,

I was wondering if you know how flexible the Disneyland Resort is in their cake requests? I’m hoping to see if they can do a 10th anniversary cake for us that’s a replica of our wedding cakes top tier. We’ve ordered cakes from WDW bakeries before and have found them to be more creative in their designs, so we’re not sure who to speak to or what to expect from requesting a cake at Disneyland. Thanks!

Reply

Carrie September 15, 2013 at 12:03 PM

The number to call is at the bottom of this page, but the options are generally pretty limited. (Also, if you really love the taste of WDW’s buttercream, I should warn you that Disneyland uses a smoother, less-sweet Chantilly buttercream that is not my favorite.) That said, Disneyland does turn out some gorgeous wedding cakes, so the capability is there, but whenever I call, I can’t seem to get them to do more than a standard buttercream cake with frosted message. However, if you can get the CM on board with your idea and they’ll let you send in photos, maybe they’ll help you get something more elaborate. Definitely let me know how it goes!

Reply

Keri September 15, 2013 at 2:43 PM

I called Disney Dining which is where you are to order cakes from and was rather disappointed by the information that I received. They do not do wedding cake recreations, even for only the top tier. Nor will they do anything creative that strays from their standard boxed cake of limited characters. Additionally when asked if they could email me a few pictures of what their cakes look like so that I would know what my options are, the person that I spoke to informed me that they don’t do that. I find this to be very frustrating as I am use to the creativity of WDW. I couldn’t help but get upset thinking about how frustrated that a simple cake request couldn’t even be accommodated.

Having gotten married through DFTW @ DLR I know that they can make cakes, but the lack of access to having a nice cake made is beyond frustrating.

Reply

Carrie September 15, 2013 at 3:14 PM

Yeah, that’s about what I expected. However, you have an advantage—contact your DFTW planner and let her know what you’re trying to do. I’ll bet she can make it happen!

Reply

Carrie September 15, 2013 at 3:17 PM

Another thought… not being a fan of Disneyland’s cakes, I usually order mine elsewhere. For example, my all-time favorite bakery is Susiecakes, and their Newport Beach or Manhattan Beach locations could deliver to your hotel as long as you can be there to meet them.

Reply

Carrie December 10, 2013 at 4:33 PM

You know, anytime someone on the DIS has asked Disney about this, they’ve been told it’s not possible to get an ice cream cake. It never hurts to call Private Dining at the place where you’ll be staying or dining and see if the policy has changed, but I would bet it’s something to do with keeping it frozen and transporting it and blah blah blah they don’t want you to be disappointed…. Sorry I don’t have better news!

Hi Carrie! Thank you so much for all of this info. We are going to be at DW this summer during my daughter’s 5th bday. I’d love to have a Frozen themed cake. Maybe even a Barbie doll shaped cake (Elsa). Do you think they’d do that? We have breakfast reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table & dinner at the Garden Grille in Epcot.

Reply

Carrie March 17, 2014 at 12:36 PM

Hi Ann! Cinderella’s Royal Table does offer a standard “Barbie Doll” style cake with several princess options, but so far I haven’t seen any Frozen options. I’d contact them using the info on this page and see if they’re planning to start offering one. Otherwise, they should be able to customize a more traditionally shaped cake with snowflakes and screen prints at either restaurant.

I think your best bet is to contact the Magic Kingdom Cake line and ask what your options are: 407-827-2253 or magickingdomcakes@disney.com. In the past they haven’t been able to guarantee that their allergen-free cakes were actually nut-free, but things change all the time.

Do you know if there are any options to order a cake or have one delivered to the Sparkling Dessert party in Epcot?

I love that you want to bring a cake to a party that’s already full of desserts—a girl after my own heart! The easiest thing to do would be to order it for pickup at the BoardWalk Bakery and bring it with you. But be sure to also bring something to fend off all the other partygoers when they discover that you’re the only ones who got cake!

Sorry if this question has been asked a lot, can a 2-tiered cake be ordered for a sweet 16 birthday, or do they only do multiple tier cakes for weddings? I want to order a cake, nothing too big, but not mini sized, for a dinner at the California Grill in May

Yes, but they are very expensive—about $200 and up—and they feed about 40 people. Last year we had the Contemporary make us a sort of “maxi-mini cake” because the design we wanted was too big for a standard mini cake and we didn’t want a full 2-tier cake. It was a 3-inch atop a 5-inch and cost… $75 I think? With tax and private dining surcharge it was about $90. You can see it at the very bottom of this post. The Contemporary has been a bit stingy with the options since Chef Brian left the pastry team, but maybe if you tell them you saw this one and you loved it they’ll be willing to do something a bit more custom. Contact info is here.

Thank you for the response. That’s a beautiful cake. I’m going to get in touch with them and see if they will do a similar size with my design ideas.

Is it better to call or e-mail the Contemporary? Last year I had a cake made from them and I called but things seem to be different this year.

Hmmm… Maybe try emailing, and then if you don’t hear back in about a week, call to follow up. Sometimes when you call you don’t get someone who is knowledgeable about the process.

This is a great article. I do want to mention that the bakeries will make rice crispy cakes as well. Most of my kids hate cake, but love rice crispies. For my son’s birthday we had a rice crispy cake (covered in frosting with a screen printing of WALLE on it) delivered to Chef Mickey’s, and this past November, for another child, I had a rice crispy cake with chocolate frosting, and chocolate aristocats on it. That was at Cape May Cafe.

Is the Swan and Dolphin area serviced at all or would I have to go in-park for a custom cake order? I’m looking for a Toy Story theme

They are not serviced by Disney but do have their own pastry team. The phone number and options are listed toward the end of the Cake FAQ.

Do you think they would make a Star Wars cake or is it also something they can’t make like Winnie the Pooh?

They have made some Star Wars things in the past, but lately they have gotten stingier about which licensed properties they’ll let you have. On the other hand, it seems like not all cast members know these new rules, so depending on where you want the cake, you may have no problem getting one with Star Wars stuff on it!
