Plaza Ice Cream Parlor (Disney World)

Plaza Ice Cream Parlor is a delightful and nostalgic ice cream shop located on Main Street, U.S.A., at Magic Kingdom Park in Walt Disney World Resort, Florida. This charming eatery captures the essence of a classic ice cream parlor from a bygone era, offering guests a sweet and refreshing escape during their magical Disney park visit.

The Plaza Ice Cream Parlor’s vintage-inspired decor, complete with old-fashioned soda fountains and retro-style seating, transports guests back in time to the early 20th century. The shop’s location on Main Street, U.S.A., adds to the nostalgic charm, as it evokes the spirit of turn-of-the-century America.

The star of the show at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor is, of course, the ice cream! Guests can choose from a delectable selection of hand-scooped ice cream flavors, including classics like vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, as well as seasonal and specialty options. The ice cream can be enjoyed in cones, cups, or even as part of indulgent sundaes topped with whipped cream, hot fudge, caramel, and other delightful toppings.

In addition to traditional ice cream treats, the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor also serves up ice cream floats and refreshing beverages, making it a perfect stop for a midday pick-me-up or a sweet treat after enjoying the attractions.

I am founder and editor of My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back to my first trip to Walt Disney World in the mid-80's. I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times. I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets. Other site isDMR.
