OK, so the frozen Mickey bars from room service has got to be the worst kept 'secret' of Disney cruise line. Seems like everybody knows about being able to get the frozen Mickeys from room service! We heard about it (I think I read it on-line here) before our second cruise and have gotten them ever since...and yet they are still not listed on the menu?

So why does DCL keep this a 'secret'? Is it a gift to DU? Is it to keep the Mickey bars 'special'? Or is it just a high-dollar item for DCL to buy and stock?

There are also the Mickey rice crispie treats on a stick that aren't on the menu, but I ordered them from room service a couple of times. Sometimes got chocolate covered ears, sometimes plain. I never specified which I wanted...

I have no idea why they keep it off the room service menu, I am just glad I know about it!! :)

I heart the DIS!

I had my first Mickey bar from room service on the Wonder in December. I ordered them 3 out of 4 days, and also chose that for dessert on my last night at dinner. :teeth: I wish I had known about them on my first Disney cruise!

At WDW, I always need to have at least one Mickey bar & Mickey waffles. It's nice to know I can get them on the cruise as well!

It's deff to keep mickey bars special. Regardless of the fact everyone can order them, don't you feel a little happier inside, when you call up room service, and order something not on the menu? It's just to make the kids and kids at heart feel special.
I'm 20 and it always makes me feel special when I order them. :goodvibes

Any other cool things to order from room service that might not be on menu?? can you get fresh fruit for the room??

There is a fresh fruit cup on the menu. I wouldn't be surprised if you meant you wanted a piece of fruit that you may be able to have that.

My one twin son loves fruit cups and my DH loves a nice piece of fruit. I was thinking that they might have some nice fruit we don't typically get at home ~ mango, papaya etc...

Most everyone that has been to WDW knows these as being the same ones that they offer there. They are dipped in "Dove" chocolate! Yum! They are listed on the dining plan as a "snack option" and are listed as being called the "Mickey Premium ice cream bar." Yummy !!! Hope you get to enjoy one soon ! :cutie:

You can also order the Smuckers "Uncrustable" PB & J sandwiches. Great to keep in the cooler box for a little anytime snack, especially for little ones, but even better to order to take on an excursion. We've been doing that since our first cruise in 2002 and they are still not on the menu..... I don't understand that menu at all

I thought it tasted like a Dove bar, although the wrapper said it was a Nestle ice cream bar. I paid $3.50 for one at WDW last month.

No, they are NOT Dove ice cream, they used to be, but they are now Nestle. Dove is owned by M&M Mars.

Personally, I hate them now and will leave them all for others.

Yumm! Sounds like a great treat. I will definitely have to remember to order them once or twice ;) while I'm on the Magic!

You don't like Nestle (the company), or the bars are a lot different from Dove? I thought the Nestle bars were great.

I liked the ice cream when it was Dove, I tried the Nestle one and it was not as good ice cream wise, plus I don't like chocolate, so I pick it off anyway.

I don't eat much chocolate, if I have a choice I turn it down. I wish someone could make caramel hard like the dipping chocolate, then I would eat them all. Probably a good thing there is no such thing, LOL.

Me too! ME TOO! :lovestruc I say put Mickey w/o choc in a bowl and drown it in caramel. Yum!!! :worship: Hey...do you know that Milky Way bars now have a all caramel. They are good even though there is chocolate on the out side. :thumbsup2

I think the chocolate is the best part! The ice cream is just something for the chocolate to adhere to. :rotfl:

Wow, I didn't know about these! Ice cream is good and fine, but I LOVE the Mickey Rice Krispie treats. I had no idea you could get them through room service. Room service is going to hate me now. The next time I wake up hungry at 2:00 am I will be ordering one of these. YUM! :woohoo:

Yum! My next Disney cruise is one year from today, so it will be a LONG wait for a room service delivery! :sad: On the other hand, I'll be at WDW 7 weeks from today, so I think I'll buy a Mickey bar first thing! :yay:

when ordering a mickey bar say you want a rat on a stick. I was on a cruise once and the server told me she used to work at Epcot and when Dad's would come up to get one she would say do you want a rat on a stick. That would put a smile on their face.

Hmmm ... Mickey Bars from room service! :goodvibes Any chance you can get a DOLE WHIP??? :worship::worship::worship:

We've never cruised, but will be embarking on the Dream exactly one year from today! :banana: If I were to call room service and order 4 Mickey bars, what would an appropriate tip be? I know that "general tipping" is all done via a prorated system, but that additional tips for room service delivery are in order. Just wondering how much I would give the person?

TIA for your advice!

Nope....no Dole Whips yet on DCL!! We usually tip $2.00 for a small order from room service...more if we order a whole meal...may $3-4.00.

How long does it take for room service to arrive?

Say I get a hankering for a Mickey Bar or the rice crispie Mickey... how long to I have to hang around in the room waiting?

I don't plan on spending all that much time in the room during the short cruise!

I have read that the first thing you should do when you get to your room is order a fruit and cheese platter from room service.

Can you imagine what would happen if everyone did that?!

02-27-2010, 11:17 PM
I don't really count it as a secret. They are on some of the kids menus. I won't say you can have anything you want for room service, but if it is being cooked in the kitchen at that time, or available you can request it, just like requesting something from another dining room.

I don't think we waited more than 15 minutes for the Mickey bars to arrive. That was the first time I have ever ordered from room service on a cruise, and all I wanted was a Mickey bar! :teeth:

We enjoy the Mickey Bars. One thing I can say, they are so much better than those pirate ice cream bars served on the EB TA in 2007 when the Mickey Bar supply ran out while in the Med. Can you imagine a 14 night cruise without Mickey Bars!! :scared1: There must have been quite a few complaints because the Mickey Bar supply was replenished at our CC stop. :goodvibes All was well on Magic. :laughing:

We tried to get the Mickey rice crispie on the 2/4 Wonder, and we're told they didn't have them. Not sure if we were told correctly, but no rice crispies for us. Life goes on. : )

Anyway, my kids got the Mickey bars at every sit down dinner. I was kinda tired on them by the end, since I always ended up eating their leftovers.

Me too forget the ice cream bars bring on the rice krispy treats we leave for a cruise Mar 4th cant wait to order them.

I discovered the Rice Krispy treats very late on our last cruise (around night 13 of 15).

I love the Mickey Head rice krispy treats at WDW (especially from Goofy's at DTD). The ones on the ship had been refridgerated and didn't taste quite the same. I'm hoping that on the shorter cruises, they taste fresher.

That said, I still plan to order some in three weeks!
