Ice Cream Martinis - The french know how to do it right and we're starting off with two treats from L'Artisan des Glaces in Epcot's France Pavilion.

Served in a martini glass, you can choose you're favorite flavor and top it with Grand Marnier, Clement Rhum from Martinique, and Whipped Cream flavored Epic Vodka!

Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwiches - Also from L'Artisan des Glaces and continue the indulgent selections of decedent desserts. Not only in the ice cream silky smooth, but the macarons here are the absolute best on property with that perfect light crisp outside giving way to a soft chewy center. C'est Magnifique!

Apple Crisp a' la Mode - An American classic from Hollywood Scoops in Disney's Hollywood Studios has "cinnamon apples topped with old-fashioned vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, and streusel top that's out of this world!

Dole Whip - I know, this non-dairy classic isn't technically ice cream, but how could I make a cool down list without mentioning this cult classic? The original versions of Dole Whip can be found at Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom, and the Pineapple Lanai at Disney's Polynesian Resort. However for a fun and grown-up twist try it topped with spiced rum at Tamu Tamu Refreshments in the Harmbe Village section of Disney's Animal Kingdom!
