How do I order a cake at ______________ ?
For Disney-owned and -operated locations at Walt Disney World, call the Cake-Ordering Hotline at 407-827-2253. For the Swan & Dolphin, the Four Seasons Orlando and Disneyland, see the bottom of this FAQ.
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 and the Flickr photo albums I’ve culled from it.
Is there an email address for ordering cakes?
Only the Magic Kingdom (WDW.Magic.Kingdom.Specialty.Desserts@Disney.com) has a public email address for placing orders, but they no longer offer custom cakes. 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. You do not need to be in the room when the cake is delivered, but you must be checked in to your reservation.
Can I pick up a cake somewhere?
BoardWalk Bakery offers the option to pick up a cake with at least 72 hours’ notice (standard 6-inch cakes like those available at restaurant podiums can be purchased with no notice). Private Dining at the Contemporary and the Grand Floridian may be allow you to pick up a cake at one of the restaurants in the resort without a reservation. If you’re staying at a resort that doesn’t offer Private Dining, 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 Disney Springs?
There are no longer any Disney-owned restaurants at Disney Springs, which means you’ll have to phone each restaurant individually to see whether it offers custom cakes. Information on cake options at some of the Disney Springs restaurants can be found on the Cake Options By Location page.
Can I order a cake for someone else?
This is tricky. When you place the order, you will be required to provide a credit card number, but Disney often charges the room or the restaurant bill, so your friend will have to pay the bill. Also, sometimes the server doesn’t realize there is a cake for the table, so if no one in the party knows about it and reminds him/her, it may never appear.
When should I order my cake?
No less than 72 hours ahead of time for simple cakes. For complicated fondant designs, at least 1 week’s notice is necessary. Disney will take your order up to 90 days ahead, but be sure to reconfirm it a few days out to be sure it hasn’t been lost.
What size cake do I need for my group and how much will it cost?
- Mini-cake serves 2, starts at $40
- 6-inch serves 5, starts at $35
- 8-inch serves 8, starts at $50
- 10-inch serves 16, starts at $70
- Mickey Mouse cake serves 12, costs $54
- 1/4 sheet cake serves 25, starts at $80
- 1/2 sheet cake serves 50, starts at $120
- Full sheet cake serves 100, starts at $180
Prices for fancy cakes start at $32 on top of the price for a basic cake in the size you want.
This bakery’s “Cake-ulator” will give you a rough idea of the cost of your custom Disney cake: http://www.galabakery.com/cake-ulator
When do I pay for my cake?
Usually you pay when it is delivered to you at the restaurant or it is added to your hotel bill upon delivery to your room. However, if the cake is being made by the pastry team at a different resort than the one where you will receive it, you may be required to pay for it when you place your order.
Cakes delivered to your room at a Disney resort with Private Dining will incur the standard Private Dining delivery fee (currently $3) and service charge (currently 18%).
Cakes delivered to a meal at a restaurant will be added to the total bill for the meal. This allows you to apply Tables In Wonderland, AP, DVC and other discounts to the price of the cake, but it also means the price of the cake will be included when they calculate any automatic gratuity like those associated with large parties and Tables In Wonderland.
Do I need to bring my own candles?
No. Disney’s table-service restaurants provide candles upon request.
What flavors are available?
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 pastry teams and Epcot can accommodate certain special requests. Some pastry teams charge more for specialty flavors. Note that carrot cake and fresh fruit fillings are not available for mini cakes.
This is a list of flavors for cakes made by the Grand Floridian’s wedding cake team. Because they are separate from the teams that make other celebration cakes at the Grand Floridian, the parks and the other resorts, not all of these flavors may be available for non-wedding cakes. But it never hurts to ask!

Can I get a fancy, fondant-covered cake or a mini cake in a theme park?
Only at Epcot, excluding restaurants in the Mexico, China, Italy, Japan, Morocco, and France pavilions. 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 your wedding planner. If your wedding was in the last five years, they can access your BEO to get an exact description of the cake and send it to the Grand Floridian’s wedding cakes team. Note that there will be a hefty delivery fee if you want the cake sent anyplace besides the Grand Floridian. Alternatively, BoardWalk Bakery can replicate any of the standard Escape Collection cake designs. Otherwise, you can submit photos to any pastry team on property to help them replicate your cake.
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.
- Snow White
- Tinker Bell
- Peter Pan
- Captain Jack Sparrow
- Jedi Mickey
- 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.
Can I get something other than a cake, like chocolate-covered strawberries?
Your best bet is to be staying at a Deluxe Resort, since their private dining menus usually have a section for “celebrations” or edible “amenities” you can have delivered to your room. Click here for a sample of the cake-alternatives at the Contemporary Resort and Animal Kingdom Lodge. You’ll need to contact private dining at your resort to see what they offer, since every resort does something different.
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.
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 also offers it in milk chocolate. See this page for more info.
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. Usually they will refer you to vegan bakery Erin McKenna’s Bakery (née Babycakes NYC) at Downtown Disney, which delivers two-layer 6-inch cakes (serves 8–10) to restaurants on Disney property for $52. The price of the cake is $59 if you pick it up at Erin McKenna’s.
Call 407-938-9044 to order (Monday – Friday, 9am–5pm). Erin McKenna’s offers gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free, casein-free, egg-free, vegan and kosher baked goods. Certain other Erin McKenna’s Bakery items—like mini cupcakes, cookies and doughnuts—can be found in the gift shops at the Beach Club and Kidani Village; at Jambo House’s quick-service spot, the Mara; in the food courts at Pop Century and Art of Animation; and at Animal Kingdom’s Gardens Kiosk, a food-allergy info booth near Flame Tree Barbecue and It’s Tough to Be a Bug.
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 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.
My recommendation is to order from local bakery SusieCakes in Costa Mesa. They don’t do fondant-covered cakes, but they do make the best, moistest old-fashioned buttercream cakes—and they taste WAY better than any cake I’ve ever had at Disneyland. If you order directly from SusieCakes, the delivery fee will set you back $35. But if you use the app/website Postmates, the delivery fee is closer to $15.
Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake

- $35 plus tax and gratuity (if applicable)

Basic Custom Cakes
With 48 hours’ notice, most restaurants (except those at the Magic Kingdom) also offer basic custom cakes in larger sizes and a limited range of flavors with basic decorations. A 6-inch cake costs $35 (serves 5) and is available in all-chocolate or all-vanilla. If an 8-inch cake is offered, it will be available in chocolate or vanilla and cost $50 (serves 8). Ordering a 10-inch cake ($70, 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, fruit mousse or custard with strawberries and covered in vanilla or chocolate buttercream or whipped cream. Sheet cakes are available in 1/4 ($80, serves 25), 1/2 ($120, serves 50) and full ($180, 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

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.
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 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.
