While some of the Deluxe Resort bakeries can turn out elaborate, fondant-covered cakes, most locations on property offer only simple chocolate or vanilla cakes. Pictured below are examples of the basic cakes you can get just about anywhere at Walt Disney World (Epcot’s France, China, Morocco, Mexico, Japan and Italy Pavilions, as well as Coronado Springs Resort, are the exceptions).

Mickey Mouse Celebration Cakes


Where can I get one?
Any Disney-owned and -operated table-service restaurant or any Deluxe Resort with Private Dining. This means that in Epcot the cakes are only available in the Canada, UK, America, Germany and Norway pavilions, plus Future World. It also means you can’t get one at Be Our Guest Restaurant at lunchtime because there is no table service at that time.

How much are they?
$35 plus tax and gratuity (if applicable)

How many people do they feed?
4 to 6 people.

Which flavors are available?
All-chocolate or all-white-chocolate only.

What’s inside the cake?

Probably this (sponge cake, mousse and ganache):


Are they allergy-friendly?
No. The cakes contain gluten and milk, and they are produced in a facility that contains peanuts and tree nuts. Disney refers most allergy-friendly cake requests to Erin McKenna’s Bakery at Downtown Disney. See Post # 1 for more information.

Can I get a message written on them?

Only “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations” are available; they write it on the chocolate ears.

How do I order one?
Call 1-407-WDW-DINE or inquire in person at a Walt Disney World Resort concierge desk or restaurant podium.

How far in advance do I have to order?
Day-of quantities are limited, so make arrangements prior to dining. 72–48 hours ahead is a good idea.

Do I have to pay in advance?
Not if you have a confirmed dining reservation.

Other Basic Cakes

Note that the designs pictured below are specific to cakes made by the Contemporary Resort, which also services Fort Wilderness and Wilderness Lodge. The decorations on standard cakes ordered elsewhere at Walt Disney World may vary (although the Mickey Mouse cake looks the same everywhere).

Chocolate Slipper and Crown Desserts

They say these are available only at Cinderella’s Royal Table, but you can also get the slipper at resorts serviced by the Contemporary Resort and Grand Floridian pastry teams (for a higher price). At Cinderella’s Royal Table you can choose from a white or dark chocolate slipper or a white chocolate crown; all are accompanied by a small chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling and chocolate ganache icing. Price is $15 plus tax, and you can choose from a “Happy Birthday,” “Happy Anniversary,” or “Congratulations” chocolate piece. To order for Cinderella’s Royal Table, email

    Has anyone gotten a custom cake at Via Napoli. If you would have pictures to share that would be even better!

      Hi Bethany! Via Napoli doesn’t offer custom cakes. They have four standard types of cake to choose from, and in 10 years of following the DISboards’ Cake Chatter thread, I’ve never seen anyone mention ordering any of them. You can read about their standard options on the Cake Options By Location page.

    I am trying to do a surprise anniversary family trip when I return from my deployment in Iraq. As much as this is a family trip, I want to make sure my wife knows I haven’t forgot about our anniversary. Is it possible to have a cake waiting in our room, for our arrival, at the all-star movie resort?

      Hi Dusty! Thank you for your service to our country! What a sweet idea for your wife. Supposedly they can now put cakes in the rooms before you arrive as long as you have pre-checked-in online. All-Stars are a little tricky, though, because they don’t have a Private Dining Department. So getting a cake delivered to your room can sometimes take a long game of phone tag: First, trying to get someone to call you back so you can place an order, then waiting for them to relay all your info to BoardWalk Bakery (unfortunately, you can’t order directly from BWB for delivery to the All-Stars), then finding out the price and arranging delivery. If you can’t get a call back after leaving multiple messages, sometimes you have to call the main number for the resort, explain what you’re trying to do, and hope you’ve gotten a CM who is persistent enough to help you track down the right person. Which is all to say, it might be easier if you had the cake delivered to a restaurant serviced by a Deluxe resort like the Contemporary or the Grand Floridian. You can find ordering info here:

      Ooh! I just had another idea! It is way overpriced, but a more reliable way to ensure you’ll have the cake when you want it could be to order this basic all-vanilla or all-chocolate cake via Disney Floral & Gifts. That way you could place your order online and know for sure it will be delivered to your room that day (though it doesn’t look like you can specify a time):’

      Hi! The photos and information on this site are only for cakes made at and delivered to Walt Disney World, unfortunately. Disney does not ship its cakes. However, you could do a Google search for Olaf Cakes and then show the photos to a local bakery as inspiration!
