How can you choose?! Walt Disney World has some of the best food in the world. This list is simply my most delicious bite memories. There are so many other good ones! What’s on your list?
1. Filet Mignon and Mac and Cheese from Jiko
Years ago, the filet at Jiko in Animal Kingdom Lodge was served on a bed of deliciously creamy macaroni and cheese with a South African red wine sauce. Today it’s served with grilled asparagus and olive oil potatoes. While it’s still amazing, I will never forget that flavor combination.
2. Honey Coriander Chicken Wings from ‘Ohana
‘Ohana means family, but it also means never-ending chicken wings. These sticky, sweet wings are heavenly. They come as an appetizer in this beloved restaurant at the Polynesian Resort. I have been guilty of not eating the entrée at ‘Ohana because I was too busy chowing down on wings.
3. Coq au Vin from France
Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival has had some absolutely amazing selections. One year, the France booth had a Coq au Vin served with Gruyere mac and cheese. Oh my word. The tender chicken mixed with wine soaked mac and cheese was out of this world. Fans can recreate this dish at home if they have the 2015 Festival cookbook!

4. Potstickers from China
The Lotus Blossom Café at the China Pavilion in Epcot has some great meal choices year round. I’m a potsticker fanatic. It’s a bit of a problem. I love the fact that they’re so easily accessible as a sweet snack whenever you want. To be honest, they’re probably not the best potstickers in the world, but having them in Epcot makes them better.
5. Macadamia Nut Butter from Kona Café
This is a free one! Sort of. Before your meal at the Polynesian Resort’s Kona Cafe, your server brings you a basket of honey bread with a side of macadamia nut butter. It’s so good; I always eat way too much and then can’t eat my actual meal!
6. Mini Corn Dogs from Casey’s
Not all of these need to be gourmet to be delicious! I am a sucker for the mini corn dogs from Casey’s in the Magic Kingdom. I love this quick serve meal. It’s easy, fun, and so yummy! I got these as a kid because they’re the perfect kid meal, but it turns out they’re perfect for adults too!
7. First Mickey Bar
Honestly, I don’t remember my first ever Mickey Bar. I was probably only two when I had it. But somehow these little beauties are everyone’s favorite snack. If we were to get really truthful, they’re just vanilla ice cream covered in a dark chocolate shell on a stick. Nothing crazy. And yet they’re the most magical dessert.
8. First Dole Whip
A lot of places seem to be ripping off Disney with their Dole Whip, but Magic Kingdom was the first place I ever had it. This is an iconic Walt Disney World snack. It’s light and fresh, sweet and scrumptious. Plus, the fact that it’s pineapple tricks you into thinking it’s healthy.
9. Ravioli Bolognese from Italy
The Food and Wine Festival strikes again! The Festival allows the countries to put on their Sunday best, as it were. They get to put on display the best they have to offer. For Italy several years back, this meant the Ravioli Bolognese. Creamy cheese ravioli smothered in delectable meat and béchamel sauces.
10. Jamon from Jaleo
This one is truly a bite, but it’s enough to leave a lasting impression. Jaleo by Chef Jose Andres in Disney Springs is a remarkable fresh restaurant. Their menu is loaded with amazing flavors. But I was blown away by the 48-month cured ham imported from Spain. The flavor in this one wafer-thin slice of meat is extreme, rich, and layered. Yum.
