I always prefer delivery directly to my resort room so I don't have to schlep leftover cake home from a park. Additionally, you may have an easier time getting what you want from the Contemporary's pastry team b/c they have so much more experience (though Epcot has stepped up its game recently).

For anyone that has had a cake delivered to their room, was there an extra charge for this? And how much was it?

This is my Haunted Mansion themed mini cake that my mom ordered from CR to be delivered to the Crystal Palace for my birthday. She told me the price was $65.

That's awesome!! My sisters boyfriend had me order a Tangled themed Mini Cake from Boardwalk Bakery for my her (he has to leave our trip early for work) so he wanted to surpirse her and have it delivered to the BC on the 23rd after he left as a surprise so I'm sure there will be a delivery fee. Will take pictures. I was quoted $65 too. The theming alone was $30 extra but he said she deserved it. He's a good guy.

The standard room service charges of 18% gratuity, $3 delivery fee and 6.5% sales tax apply.

Does anyone have the dimensions of a mini cake? Or something to use as reference for size. The pictures are always close up so I'm sure it's looks a lot larger than it actually is. Thanks

Here's a pic I took of a mini cake next to a single-serve milk carton for reference:



And this pic of a two-tier mini cake shows it next to a bread plate that offers a bit of scale...

Thanks. That helps. They are fairly small. I'm trying to decide between a two-tier mini cake or a six inch. There are four of us. 2 adults and 2 kids. We are celebrating my DDs 10th birthday. Dinner will be at CRT so I'm going to have the cake delivered there.

I still have 3 months to go but could use some advice as to when to order the cake. We want the cake on January 14. Should I wait until after New Years to order it?

A two-tier mini cake is definitely not enough to feed 4, even if 2 of them are kids. I would probably wait til the New Year to order just so that it didn't get lost in the holiday rush—like maybe til Jan. 4?

I am getting two cakes for our upcoming trip. At YC, the 2 tier mini was $80 and the 6" was $85. At CR, the 2 tier mini was $80 and the 6" was $68. Went with a 6" at both places and there are 5 of us. I didn't realize how mini the mini cakes were until I just saw the recently posted pictures. Glad I went with the 6"!!!

I called the beginning of October for October 25 and 29 deliveries.

Yeah, the mini cakes are supposedly really only for one person, though even we inveterate sugar fans find them a bit rich to finish solo. I usually choose mini cakes so there won't leftovers, but when the price starts to get up aroundor even more thanthat of a 6-inch cake that could easily feed 6 people, it kinda makes you think...
