If I had to pick just ONE dessert to eat at Disney World, the Almond Crusted Cheesecake with Lambert Cherry Sauce would be it! You can get this deliciousness at Narcoossee’s located at the Grand Floridian resort, which is also my daughter’s favorite restaurant and has her all-time favorite dessert.
It’s very hard to get me excited about dessert, but they managed to do it with this masterpiece! It is melt in your mouth wonderful. The cheesecake is creamy, and not overly sweet, and is perfectly complimented by the tart cherry sauce. The crunchy almond crust adds a nice texture and just makes the whole dish. You want to get a little of everything on your fork for the perfect bite 😉
Since the restaurant is situated right on 7 Seas Lagoon, and has beautiful views, you could go for coffee and dessert – or a cocktail! I did speak with the manager today and confirm that you can go just for dessert, which has been a question I’ve seen on many Disney forums. This is good to know if you just want to try the dessert, because a meal here is not cheap. That said, it is on the dining plan and uses (2) table service credits per person, which is usually what we do.
Narcoossee’s is one of only two places I think it is worth using two of your credits (the other being California Grill), although we do one or the other per trip. We actually like not being tied down to reservations every night, and prefer to use a quick service for a night or two – usually at Wolfgang Puck Express or Earl of Sandwich.
If you go try this amazing dessert, be sure to come back and let us know what you think!
