Finding something delicious to eat at Walt Disney World is very easy. In fact, the hardest part is trying to narrow down which treats are the best. To help you with your next visit to the “Most Magical Place on Earth,” here are the 20 best snacks at Disney World.
The 20 Best Snacks in Disney World You Have To Try
I can’t lie; taste-testing countless snacks on my last trip to Disney World was a delicious labor of love. Whether you love a sweet snack, a savory one, or a combination of the two, I’ve got you covered. To make things even easier, I narrowed down the five best snacks for each of the four parks. Here are my top picks for the best snacks in Disney World.
Best Magic Kingdom Snacks
Fun fact: Magic Kingdom pumps in the scent of tasty treats to encourage guests to try them, especially at The Confectionary. You’ll have to walk a bit around the entire park to tick off this list, though.
1. Dole Whip
Undoubtedly the most beloved treat in Magic Kingdom, Dole Whip is an absolute delight. Found at Aloha Isle in Adventureland, you can’t go wrong with classic pineapple, but keeping an eye out for seasonal flavors like coconut and strawberry is never a bad idea.
2. Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
Deliciously smooth vanilla ice cream surrounded by a thick coating of dark chocolate is perfection on a stick. Sure, you’ll pay a premium price at stand-alone carts all over the park, but they’re so good you can find dupes in your local grocery store’s freezer section.
3. Giant Cinnamon Roll
Before a Starbucks on Main Street U.S.A., a coffee shop sold the most decadent of giant cinnamon rolls. These mammoth treats are found at Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland but are still as delicious.
4. Cheshire Cat Tail
This treat is ideal for a mid-morning snack, a flaky pastry with a gooey chocolate center topped with icing drizzle in the famous Cheshire Cat colors. You can find it in Fantasyland at Cheshire Cafe near the Teacups.
5. Spring Rolls
Not your traditional theme park snack; all you have to do is look for the lengthy line near Club 33 in Adventureland if you don’t smell them first. The Cheeseburger Spring Rolls are a cult favorite, but other flavors are swapped out depending on the time of year and season.
Best Epcot Snacks
Epcot is all about tasting food from around the world, and I am inspired to try everything at least once. While the park’s front area offers delicious snacks, these five can be found around the World Showcase.
6. Peach Boba Tea
By the time I walk the full mile around World Showcase, I’m ready for a cool beverage. My beverage of choice, and I’m not alone in my belief, is the peach Boba Tea from the Joy of Tea kiosk at the China Pavilion. It has just the right amount of flavor and sweetness, and the non-popping boba is a bonus after your drink is gone.
7. School Bread
I’ve actually made a School Bread dupe recipe at home, and it’s pretty close, but nothing compares to a freshly made one from Norway Pavilion. The hint of cardamon in the bread, combined with vanilla custard in its center, is hearty and crave-able.
8. Kaki Gori
Kaki Gori is a flavorful, icy treat at Kabuki Cafe in Japan Pavilion. We know it as shaved ice, but the tasty kicker is trying it with a layer of sweetened condensed milk on the top.
9. The Croque Glacé
Until my last visit, I’d never tried the Croque Glacé at L’Artisan des Glaces in France Pavilion, and I’m kicking myself for not devouring it sooner. A fun spin on an ice cream sandwich, this one offers handmade ice cream of your choice between a brioche bun that’s toasty hot.
10. Egg Rolls
Egg Rolls? I know you can get them in practically any city. Still, the pork and vegetable style from Lotus Blossom Café in China Pavilion makes this list because of their affordability and heartiness. If you’re not starving, add some Duck Sauce over the top, and they’ll make a light meal.
Best Disney’s Hollywood Studios Snacks
Lights! Camera! Snack-tion! I may sound corny, but there are plenty of great snacks at Hollywood Studios if you know where to look. Of course, you may have to befriend a superhero or make an out-of-this-world trip to get them.
11. Lunch Box Tart
Since Toy Story Land opened in 2018, the Lunch Box Tart at Woody’s Lunch Box has been popular, no matter the tasty interior. While you can’t go wrong with the classic Raspberry Tart, the seasonal flavors are just as sweet.
12. Jack-Jack’s Num Num Cookie
Jack-Jack may be the smallest of “The Incredibles,” but his Num Num Cookie at Pixar Place is quite the opposite. A massive chocolate chip cookie, it’s served warm with its chips melty and delicious.
13. Blue & Green Milk
The “Star Wars” franchise is larger-than-life, and fans demand true immersion, especially in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Blue Milk, along with its Green Milk counterpart, is offered at the Milk Stand and is a non-dairy frozen treat with a fruity essence to keep them happy and hydrated.
Tater Tots covered in chili, queso, and sour cream may sound like a full meal, but it’s a snack in Toy Story Land. Of course, they are decadent enough to keep you full for a while, but if you have family that loves sharing, a few bites will also work.
15. Outpost Popcorn
You’ll have to make another trip to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and head to Kat Saka’s Kettle for its Outpost Popcorn, but I promise it’s worth the walk. With two flavors, both sweet and savory, it’s crunchy, savory, and sweet at the same time.
Best Disney’s Animal Kingdom Snacks
Another great Disney Park to taste test food from all over the world and beyond, Animal Kingdom is an ideal park for snacking as it’s the largest of all of the Disney World theme parks, so you’ll expend plenty of calories trying to see and eat everything.
16. Chicken Fried Rice
If I have to make a plea for the best snack at Animal Kingdom, it’s the Fried Rice at Yak & Yeti Quick Service. Considered only a snack on the Disney Dining Plan, a serving is large enough for a meal for me.
17. Pongo Lumpia
If a spring roll filled with pineapple cream cheese sounds like it’s up your proverbial street, you’re among friends. Found in Pandora – The World of Avatar at Pongu Pongu, it’s crispy and creamy at the same time.
18. Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich
Hit the right side of the park at Dinoland U.S.A. and Dino-Bites for the best ice cream sandwich in the parks. Two freshly baked cookies surround a large scoop of ice cream, and that ideal combination will make me buy one every time, even if the ice cream melts before I get to my table.
19. Night Blossom
Another tasty snack from Pongu Pongu in Pandora – The World of Avatar, this boba-style frozen drink is sweet compliments of the apple and desert pear slushy and the passion fruit popping pearls on top. While I enjoy the non-alcoholic version, it can be made with liquor.
20. Buffalo Chicken Chips
So big it eats like a meal, the Buffalo Chicken Chips from Trilo Bites in Dinoland U.S.A. are hearty enough to make into lunch. While it does claim to be Buffalo-style and spicy, it’s “Disney spicy,” so I had no problem delving into them. It’s worth noting that they are very salty, so make sure you have a glass of water to wash them down – you’ll need it.
