TMSM Explains: The Difference Between the Kitchen Sink and Mickey’s Kitchen Sink (And Where to Get Both!)

November 13, 2016


Two desserts at Disney cause a good deal of confusion. This of course may be because they are both ice cream sundaes and share the same name “kitchen sink” but these two items are very different and tonight we are going to explain why!

Mickey’s Kitchen Sink Sundae


Mickey’s Kitchen Sink Sundae is a newer addition to the Disney Parks dessert line-up, it was introduced in 2014. Unlike the gigantic Kitchen Sink which is only available at Walt Disney World, Mickey’s Kitchen Sink is available at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.  The sundae comes in a plastic blow shaped like Mickey Mouse’s red pants, and guests get to take it home with them when they are finished eating it. At Walt Disney World, Mickey’s Kitchen Sink Sundae is currently $14.99* plus tax, and is made* using the following (Per current WDW Signage):


  • 2 scoops of hand-scooped chocolate, your choice of one sauce (Hot fudge, Peanut Butter, Caramel, or Strawberry Sauce), chocolate and peanut butter chips, whipped cream and a cherry12108931_10204843980210668_7576055267479377764_n

The original “Kitchen Sink” is a whooper of a sundae and is only available at Beaches and Cream, a table service dining location at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. It is highly recommended you make a reservation at Beaches and Cream if you want to tackle the Kitchen Sink. Many Disneyland guests may remember it being available at PCH Grill at Paradise Pier but it seems during the restaurant’s last major redo it was discontinued.


The Kitchen Sink “Serves 4” and currently per the official Disney Dining site costs $29* before tax and the metal sink bowl it is served in does not go home with guests. Per the Disney Parks Blog the Original Kitchen Sink is made using the following:
