Location

This sweet, fairy tale treat is only available at a few locations at Disney World, such as Cinderella’s Royal Table at the Magic Kingdom and restaurants at both the Contemporary Resort and the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

When I ordered my chocolate slipper, I was told that Grand Floridian restaurants offer a white chocolate slipper filled with whipped cream, a small chocolate mousse, and raspberry coulis. Cinderella’s Royal Table, however, offers both chocolate and white chocolate slippers to choose from filled with chocolate mousse and with a serving of fresh fruit.

Keep in mind that these details can change at any time, or could’ve changed already, so be sure to ask your Cast Member for what is being offered when you call. Also, if you are not given a preference of whether you would like a chocolate or white chocolate slipper, specify when you order, especially if you are planning this dessert for a reservation at Cinderella’s Royal Table.

Review

Now when I first heard about this dessert, I knew I had to try it for myself! My family and I were going to be at Disney World for my parents’ anniversary and so I planned to order this sweet treat as a grand finale to our special family dinner at the Grand Floridian Cafe. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of information out there about how to order the chocolate slipper, or even how much it would cost. Needless to say, I was kind of in the dark; but in the end, I spoke with a Cast Member at the Disney Cake Hotline who explained what locations offered the dessert, how it differed depending on the location, and how much it would cost. After explaining what message I would like written on the plate and dealing with payment, I was told that my chocolate slipper would be at the Grand Floridian Cafe in time for our special meal.

Towards the end of our dinner on the night of my parents’ anniversary, I privately reminded our waitress at the Grand Floridian Cafe that I had ordered a chocolate slipper. I was glad I did because she didn’t seem to be aware. This was probably because the chocolate slipper dessert is ordered and paid for apart from the Grand Floridian Café. Fortunately, it wasn’t much of an issue. She checked and found that it had arrived and was ready in the kitchen to be brought to the table when we were ready.

During your visit, I would suggest mentioning your chocolate slipper order when you arrive for your dining reservation, just to make sure that your waiter/waitress knows and so that they can bring out this special dessert at the right moment!

While my parents enjoyed the dessert, there was enough for me to have a little sampling of each treat presented on the plate too; and needless to say, I was not disappointed! The white chocolate slipper wasn’t hollow, like I expected it to be, but solid, delicious chocolate. Also, the chocolate mousse was light and creamy and not too rich. The raspberry coulis turned out to be the perfect compliment to both flavors of chocolate; and while we hated to ruin the intricate, chocolate stamp of the castle, we just had to taste that too!

We liked the fact that there was the dessert wasn’t all solid chocolate, but rather offered a variety of flavors and textures. If everything on the plate had been solid chocolate, that would’ve been too much. The presentation was impressive as well. This wasn’t a pre-fabricated dessert that Disney just threw on a plate. For example, the writing on the plate was carefully written and the little hearts in the shaped raspberry coulis was perfectly done!

Overall, the Chocolate Glass Slipper Dessert was the perfect ending to my parents’ anniversary dinner and I would definitely order it again. In fact, I’m almost tempted to order it during my next visit to Disney World for no reason at all!

Ordering

Before you call, I would strongly suggest booking a dining reservation at the restaurant of your choice before you order the chocolate slipper. A reservation number may be required upon ordering and you need to make sure that a table at your restaurant is guaranteed for the time you ordered the dessert.

Also, keep in mind that the Chocolate Glass Slipper Dessert is not included on regular restaurant menus, so don’t expect to see it under the listed desserts or being able to order it at the end of your meal. Instead, you must order through the resort restaurant of your choice beforehand at least 48 hours in advance. To order the chocolate slipper for your dining reservation at the Contemporary, you can call 407-824-2955. However, if an elegant meal at the Grand Floridian is on your agenda, call 407-824-1951 for this Cinderella-inspired dessert. You can also order through the Disney Cake Hotline at 407-827-2253 anytime from 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM all week long.

When placing your order, remember that you can include a personalized, edible message written on the edge of your plate!

Note: The chocolate slipper is also used in the Glass Slipper Proposal Package at Cinderella’s Royal Table. If a storybook proposal is what you have in mind, call the special events team for more info about creating this fairy tale moment at 407-824-4477.

Price

The Chocolate Glass Slipper Dessert currently costs $15, which I think is a reasonable price for a special, personalized dessert at Disney World. It is not included with the Disney Dining Plan and must be paid for ahead of time when you place your order.

    We just did this for my daughter’s 7th birthday at the Grand Floridian Café. Even at the Grand Floridian there was some misinformation about what was available and how to order it. For example, the concierge told me it could only be ordered on site but 24 hours in advance. I was able to order it through the cake line before we arrived with no issue although it did concern me that there was no confirmation number or anything in case there was an issue later. Also, we did not pay in advance and were not told that that was an option. We paid for it at the end of our meal; it was listed on our bill. I am very glad we did it. It was delicious and easily fed the 4 kids in our group plus a few bites for the grownups. The birthday girl was very impressed and it did come out with a lit candle for her to blow out. I would definitely order it again.

    Thanks for the review…it is always amazing to me the insistence on referring to it as white “chocolate” when there is no chocolate involved whatsoever. While the white substance is tasty on its own, I’m glad there is at least one real chocolate version.
