REVIEW: Only the OGs Know Why This Disney World Cookie Is So Iconic

Happy holidays from Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

Hey there, Gertie!

We’re live from the very first Jollywood Nights event ever and are bringing you with us to check everything out. From entertainment and merchandise to characters and more, we’re taking it all in. And now, we’re taking you with us to try some NEW eats!

All I Want For Christmas Ugly Sweater

We stopped by Gertie’s Ice Cream of Extinction to grab this special event treat — the Christmas Gertie Cookie! 

It’s Gertie!

This is a sugar cookie with mint icing, and it’s available for $4.29. You can also get it served with mint soft-serve ice cream for $6.29.

If you’re a Hollywood Studios OG, you know why we love this cookie so much. Gertie the dinosaur is an ICON in this park, and her adorable Santa hat decoration is definitely one of our favorite parts of the holidays in Hollywood Studios.

Of course, we had to get it with the soft-serve! But they ended up running out of the ice cream right after we got ours. The ice cream is delicious. It’s like eating just the mint part of mint chocolate chip ice cream. It would be best for people who are HUGE mint fans.

The cookie is soft but also has a crunch! It’s pretty sweet as it is an iced sugar cookie. Some things that were expected– the ice cream melted quickly and the cookie got soggy where it was inserted into the soft-serve. We would definitely get it again!

Have a good night Gertie!

We love this tribute to a Hollywood Studios icon — will you be grabbing it?!

There are more treats where that came from, so stay tuned to DFB for even more coverage of tonight’s event!
