This is the definitive list of the best ice cream in Orlando, Florida curated by an ice cream snob who has lived here for over a decade. I am excluding large chains that you can get outside of Orlando or the southwest United States like Dairy Queen and Culver's.
- Twistee Treat
A Central Florida classic with a huge menu.
- Florean Fortescue's Ice-Cream Parlour
If you are a Potter-head, this is the only place I know of to get butterbeer flavored soft-serve.
- Vivoli il Gelato
The best (or the only?) gelato in Orlando. If you like gelato and are near Walt Disney World, this is worth a stop.
- Sunshine Tree Terrace
Is there anything better than a Dole Whip?
- Jeremiah's Italian Ice
I love going here for the Gelati deserts.
- The Fountain of Fair Fortune or Hog's Head
Frozen Butterbeer is the best butterbeer.
- Milk Stand
Only place in the world you can get Batuu’s Blue or Green Milk with a shot of Rum
That is it, that is the list. Everything else is a waste of time. Beaches & Cream and Plaza Ice Cream Parlor serve the same Edy's ice cream you can buy at the grocery store. I hope you have a magical time in Orlando!
