One of my favorite parts of a Disney World vacation is enjoying all of the unique treats and snacks they have to offer! Every theme park has food it is known for, and Epcot may just be Disney’s best park for guests who love sampling different flavors and treats. 

I’m going to tell you all about a tasty treat, an ice cream sandwich that you can find only in EPCOT. It’s located in the back of the France pavilion

This frozen treat is a brioche ice cream sandwich. It comes with a single scoop of your choice of ice cream with a sauce of your choosing in a homemade brioche bun. The warm brioche bun is pressed warm, making a delicious combination of ice cream and warm bread.

The sauce options include options such as chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, and raspberry sauce.

For my first experience, I went with the caramel sauce for my scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This amazing dessert can only be found at L’Artisan des Glaces in Epcot. Because of its deliciousness and the power of social media, it’s become fairly popular over the past couple of years. Because of this, there can be a line you may need to wait in.

They also sometimes sell out of the buns before 9:00 pm. If a croque glacé is something you must get on your next trip to Disney, be sure to get there right at noon when they open!

A cast member will take a sliced brioche bun and place the bottom half on a warm press in front of you. They’ll drizzle the bottom bun with a sauce of your choice, sometimes even with fun Disney-themed designs! 

After you select your flavor of ice cream, they’ll place a single scoop on top of the bun with another drizzle of sauce. After that, they’ll place the top bun over your ice cream and sauce, then close the device to seal the bread together.

It’s similar to a Belgium waffle maker, but instead of a delicious ice cream cone, you’re getting a yummy and unique dessert sandwich! They’ll place the sandwich in a cute paper wrapper and voilà! You have a croque glacé. 

How do you order the Croque Glacé?

The Croque Glacé is made to order so you can customize it however you like! Tell the cast member that you’d like a Croque Glacé and tell them what flavor of ice cream you want as well as your choice of sauce. It’s that simple! 

What is EPCOT’s Croque Glacé like?

The Croque Glacé is a perfect combination of cold sweet ice cream and a warm fluffy bun. Because there are dozens of different combinations you can make with the ice cream and sauce, you can have a unique sandwich every time you go!

It’s a fantastic treat on those hot Florida days. Knowing that both the buns and ice cream are made fresh in Disney every day makes this snack even better!
