7 Foods Not To Be Missed At Walt Disney World

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: 90% of the time, I go to Disney for the food. My Disney vacation just isn’t complete without my “staple foods” to get me through those fun-filled Disney days. I think it goes without saying that you must eat cotton candy, Mickey Ice Cream, churros, and popcorn when visiting the wonderful world of Disney, but this review goes beyond the basics. So, grab your favorite snack, because this review is sure to get your stomach rumbling for some of my favorite Disney eats!

7) Casey’s Corner

This first Disney food group is a crowd favorite that’s found in the one-and-only Magic Kingdom park. For the best hot dogs Walt Disney World has to offer, head over to Main Street’s Casey’s Corner. There you’ll find just about every topping you could want on a hot dog, along with as much sauerkraut, ketchup, and mustard as your heart desires. My favorite meal there includes a bag of Cracker Jacks, french fries, and a seat next to the big screen where you can catch a few Walt Disney’s sports cartoons from back in the day.

6) Cinnamon Rolls

Many of us have eaten cinnamon rolls before, (or in my case, many, many cinnamon rolls), but most of us have not tried the cinnamon rolls from Gaston’s Tavern or the Main Street Bakery. Each of these quick-service restaurants serves up this gooey treat in their own special way. Gaston’s Tavern adds a touch of maple syrup to their roll for a spin-off of the original, while the Main Street Bakery serves a more traditional roll, smothered in sweet icing. Both of these desserts are worth sharing – if you don’t eat it all yourself.

5) Nachos

For a meal that’s the best bang for your buck, head over to Epcot’s World Showcase. In the Mexico pavilion’s outdoor restaurant, La Cantina de San Angel, the nachos goes for around $11. But, this is no ordinary bowl of chips covered in queso. I’m talking about enough chips to make two teenagers full. As a former teen, I believe I can say this as a matter of fact. In this dish, corn tortilla chips are smothered in warm, melted cheese, ground beef, refried beans, guac, tomatoes, and sour cream. Once you try these, no other nachos will be able to meet your standard.

4) BBQ

If you’re from the south like me, you appreciate good barbecue. But, no matter where you’re from, Flame Tree Barbecue will have your mouth watering just from the sweet aroma coming from the Animal Kingdom restaurant. The crowd favorites are the pulled pork sandwich and the rack of ribs, both of which are marinated in tangy barbecue sauce; they’re sure to satisfy both your sweet tooth and your stomach.

3) Pot Roast

I was told by multiple sources to add this to the must-eat list for Walt Disney World. The 50’s Prime Time Cafe is the place to go for a delicious, home-cooked meal that tastes just like mom used to make. Ground beef is cooked with a combination of onions, celery, and carrots, which all sit atop a mountain of creamy mashed potatoes to make this pot roast worth going back to the 50’s for!

2) California Grill

I made this part of the list an entire restaurant for one reason: everything is delicious here. The Contemporary Resort’s California Grill surpasses the level of fine dining most places offer with its Californian style of cooking. The seasonal menu features sushi, farm-fresh offerings, and limitless wine options. My personal favorite dishes include the Sonoma Goat Cheese Ravioli, Warm Apple Fritters, and the Chocolate Pudding Cake.

1) Dole Whips

I would like to dedicate this Disney “food group” to my sister. I have never seen a single person get more excited about dessert as much as she does when she eats a Dole Whip from Aloha Isle in Adventureland. This crowd-favorite, frozen, pineapple ice-cream float is not to be missed when venturing around Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
