Confession: I will in no way, ever get bored with seeing fantastically offered desserts. Yes, even though I stay nowhere close to where the ones cakes are made. Case in point: The Disney parks’ these days released “Imagination Pink” cakes. They are fabulous. They’re probably tasty, too, although alas, I can’t attest to that reality, as I am now not presently near a Disney park. And even though “Imagination Pink” might not be a coloration fashion I’ve heard of earlier than (is it like “fetch?” Is Disney looking to make “fetch” take place?), I am virtually willing to roll with it, because, I imply… ugh. It’s all simply so quite.
The Disney parks had been capitalizing on shade tendencies for pretty a few years now. When rose gold mouse ear headbands first hit the merch stands throughout the summer season of 2017, they piggybacked off of the overall rose gold fashion that had already been sweeping the style and splendor worlds for some time — and those went berserk for them. Other rose gold Disney tools followed, including spirit jerseys and Magic Bands… however Disney didn’t prevent there. They ran with it, giving such different colors as millennial crimson and “Potion Purple” the equal remedy.
Each time they’ve damaged out a brand new shade trend within the merchs stands, the Disney parks have placed out a whole bunch of beautiful desserts embellished with the same shades — and “Imagination Pink” is not any exceptional. Tons of “Imagination Pink” merch has these days hit both the parks and shopDisney, so first, you could get yourself some vibrant purple ears… and after you head to one of the parks, you may get yourself a deal with to go together with it. A whopping 17 wonderful, flawlessly crimson cakes are actually to be had across each Disneyland in Anaheim and Disney World in Orlando, and that they’re all as Instagrammable as they’re scrumptious.
The Disney Parks Blog has kindly released a guide to precisely what’s to be had and in which you could discover them all, too — so if you’re heading to Disney soon, right here’s wherein to visit get your mitts (and your flavor buds!) on an Imagination Pink dessert:
1. Minnie Macaron

Macarons are lovely all on their very own — however when you shape them like the famous mouse ear silhouette and upload a massive ol’ bow to them? Let’s simply say it doesn’t get a whole lot cuter than that. This Minnie Mouse-themed treat is vivid purple, sparkly, and packed with vanilla bean buttercream and Amarena cherry compote.
The Jolly Holiday Bakery Café is located on Main Street, U.S.A. At Disneyland Park; Clarabelle’s and Fiddler, Fifer & Practical are each on Buena Vista Street at California Adventure.
2. Imagination Pink Cotton Candy Cocktail
Where to get it: The Oasis Bar & Grill’s Pool Bar and the Barefoot Pool Bar, each at the Polynesian Village Resort at Walt Disney World.
The Polynesian Village at Disney World has a number of the first-rate cocktails in the complete hotel (together with pineapple Dole Whips with rum!), so it’s no marvel that they’d have something special at the menu for the Imagination Pink birthday party. This pleasant drink combines cherry vodka, almond liqueur, and strawberry purée and tops the entirety with whipped cream. Sounds like the correct aspect to sip by way of the pool to me!
Three. Strawberry Rose
Where to get it: Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs, Walt Disney World.
I haven’t yet had the opportunity to hit up Disney Springs, however you can bet that every time I do, I’m creating a beeline right for Amorette’s Patisserie. Beautifully crafted confections are this dessert spot’s specialty — and, as you could inform from this splendid photo at the left right here, they’re nearly too quite to devour. This edible “rose’ is truly a juicy strawberry that’s been included in chocolate and then decorated with pink modeling chocolate. Seems like some thing Belle and the Beast would possibly percentage, no?
Four. Imagination Pink Champagne
Where to get it: Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs, Walt Disney World.
So, hey, see that bubbly, mouse ear-topped drink at the right within the picture of the Strawberry Rose? You can get that at Amorette’s, too. The “Imagination Pink Champagne,” because it’s known as, consists of a flute of crimson champagne topped with a couple of edible, bow-embellished Minnie Mouse ears. (They’re chocolate, certainly.) This, of course, isn’t the primary time that the Disney Springs candy spot has presented a colourful glass of bubbly with a pair of chocolate mouse ears; in reality, it’s certainly one of an extended line of such treats. Looks love it’s in precise business enterprise!

Where to get it: Capt. Cook’s on the Polynesian Village Resort, Disney World.
Settle in for a protracted and colourful ride, because this Imagination Pink Cupcake is a ways from the simplest Imagination Pink Cupcake on offer right now at the Disney Parks — there are a whopping 4 with that name available. This one, but, feels like it would appeal to the cupcake traditionalists inside the crowd; it consists of vanilla cake that’s been packed with crimson berry cheesecake. Who says conventional is boring? Not Disney, that’s for certain.
6. Pretty in Pink Strawberry Tart
Now right here’s a dessert well worth writing domestic about. This extraordinary-looking treat consists of a dome of strawberry-raspberry mousse, strawberry popping pearls, pink crispy pearls (which, it appears, are completely special from the strawberry popping pearls), a coating of sparkly crimson glaçage (essentially a mirror glaze — which, for your your Instagram feed hadn’t noticed, is having A Moment in recent times), and a pair of chocolate ears with a pink chocolate bow.
The 3 Disney World All-Star Resorts are themed after movies, song, and sports. At All-Star Movies, the food court is called the World Premiere Food Court; at All-Star Music, it’s called the Intermission Food Court; and at All-Star Sports, it’s referred to as the End Zone Food Court.

The Imagination Pink Lemonade is a frozen treat which gets is rose-tinted hue from watermelon and wilderness pear. Plus, it’s to be had methods: You can get it as-is (that is, non-alcoholic); or, you may shake matters up a bit through including a few blackberry moonshine whiskey to it.
8. Imagination Pink Cupcake
See? I told you there has been a couple of Imagination Pink Cupcake on the menu on the Disney parks right now. This one — which, as a reminder, can be discovered on the bakery café positioned on Main Street, U.S.A. — sounds a touch bit heavier than the final one we looked at, though: It’s product of pound cake, which is understood for its dense and buttery consistency. It’s then been full of marmalade and topped with raspberry buttercream swirl frosting. It’s a dessert that in reality manner enterprise.
9. Imagination Pink Macaron
Where to get it: The Roaring Fork at the Wilderness Lodge, Walt Disney World.
If you like your desserts mild and whippy, here’s some other macaron to add in your Must Try listing. Not to be careworn with the Minnie Macaron available inside Disneyland Resort’s two parks, this option on the Orlando resort’s Wilderness Lodge is equally red, but with a different filling: Instead of vanilla and cherry, you’ll find a blackberry lemonade ganache sandwiched between its halves.
10. Imagination Pink Piñata
If you’re at Disney Springs, however pastries aren’t your thing, bypass Amorette’s Patisserie and head alternatively to the Ganachery. Located inside the Landing phase of the purchasing and eating vacation spot, the Ganachery is full of every sort of fancy candy and chocolate you could consider. This “piñata,” for instance (seen left), is nothing short of a showstopper: The chocolate outside is truly a hollow shell packed with different treats — in this example, vanilla bean marshmallows and crispy pearls.

Those lovely little Imagination Pink ganache squares visible to the right of the piñata, for example, are simply as tasty as they’re lovable—and that they’re a good deal extra complex than they may study first. They’re now not simply chocolate squares, you see; they’re fabricated from summer berry ganache which has been wrapped in darkish chocolate and crowned off with an Imagination Pink Mickey stamp. How candy — literally and figuratively!
12. Imagination Pink Cake Pop
Nothing spruces up a cake pop like glitter, and this Imagination Pink deal with is swimming in it. The cake is vanilla, but it’s been wrapped in “bubble gum crimson” chocolate (which I consider refers in the main to the colour, now not the taste), topped off with white chocolate mouse ears, and dusted liberally with fit for human consumption gold glitter.
This one is exclusive to the Disneyland Resort, so that you’ll need to be in California to get it. Marceline’s is placed outside the parks at the Downtown Disney District sweet spot Marceline’s Confectionary; Candy Palace is on Main Street U.S.A. At Disneyland Park; Hunny Spot is in Critter Country at Disneyland Park; Trolley Treats is on Buena Vista Street at California Adventure; and Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff is on Pixar Pier at California Adventure.

14. Imagination Pink Cupcake
The 0.33 of the three Imagination Pink Cupcakes gained’t hit the menu till June 30 — however in just a few days’ time, you’ll be able to provide this one a flavor for yourself. And, uh, oldsters?

Its filling isn’t simply raspberry; it’s raspberry cheesecake. Its frosting isn’t just raspberry buttercream; it’s two-tone raspberry buttercream. It’s additionally been crowned off with red crispy pearls and a couple of sparkly red chocolate mouse ears. It is A Lot, and I am Here For It.
15. Imagination Pink Cocktail
Where to get it: Dockside Margaritas at Disney Springs, Walt Disney World.
This cocktail might not be the most innovative concoction within the world, however it sounds tasty all of the same. Pineapple juice, coconut rum, peach schnapps, and sweet and bitter mix deliver it a tropical feel best for the hot summer season weather.
Dockside Margaritas is positioned within the Marketplace place of Disney Springs. Incidentally, it’s not too some distance faraway from the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop, so if you’d like a bit some thing sweet to nibble alongside your cocktail… that may be organized.
16. Hot Pink Cupcake
I don’t regularly think of guava as being a pass-to cupcake filling, however pretty some of Disney’s fancy cupcakes have used this tropical fruit to feature a burst of taste to the treats, so maybe I need to rethink my cupcake reviews. In any event, this cupcake — which celebrates the spirit of Imagination Pink, even though it doesn’t bring the Imagination Pink name — starts with yellow cake, provides a guava filling, and tops everything off with cream cheese buttercream. A pair of chocolate mouse ears upload the final touch, of course.

17. Imagination Pink Cupcake
Where to get it: Contempo Café on the Contemporary Resort, Walt Disney World
To get the final of the Imagination Pink Cupcakes, you’ll need to go the Contemporary Resort (a hotel whose call has admittedly constantly amused me, due to the reality that it is… very a lot now not a modern-day-searching location). This one doesn’t have a filling, but it does have an thrilling cake flavor — strawberry — and some quite crimson sprinkles atop its crown of vanilla buttercream icing.
Most of these Imagination Pink treats are to be had now, but make sure you clutch ‘em at the same time as you may — absolute confidence they’ll be constrained edition services, similar to every of the other colorfully themed cakes were over time. Now in case you’ll excuse me, I’m desperately in the mood for a cupcake…
