National Ice Cream Day at Disney World!
Get the scoop on National Ice Cream Day at the Disney Parks!
Yesterday, the 21st July 2013, the United States of America paid homage to the creamy, frozen and delicious dessert food, Ice Cream, with America's National Ice Cream Day! What a cool and ever so sweet phenomenon to celebrate. See how Disney guests enjoyed the sweetest of ice cream treats at the Disney Parks this weekend!

As well as celebrating Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Labor Day and other such days America celebrates that we don't here in the UK, the USA also celebrates Ice Cream too...yes you read correctly! In fact, so admired is this tasty and ever so satisfying treat, that the entire month of July is considered to be National Ice Cream Month, with the actual designated day falling on the 21st July. 

Admittedly those of us working on our beach bodies in preparation for visiting the Orlando waterparks this summer might be actually grateful for not being in the US throughout July, particularly yesterday.  Of course, we all know that the States are renowned for their sweet treats all year round, from Oreos, Peanut Butter M and Ms, Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream to Hersheys and Reeces. But the Disney goers amongst you will know, it's not only fireworks, nighttime spectaculars and magical memories that makes any Disney park the Happiest Place on Earth, the Disney desserts too are some of the most decadent and delicious on the planet. 

By no means are we writing this post to tempt you off your diet day, but we just had to share with you some of the delicious ice cream treats Disney guests were scooping up this National Ice Cream Day. Surely it can't hurt to look...
