There are few things better than finishing off a day at the Magic Kingdom with an amazing fireworks show. One of the things that is better? Finishing off a day at Magic Kingdom with an amazing fireworks show and an amazing snack in hand! Fortunately, Magic Kingdom theme park has tons of amazing snack options that are just perfect for munching during the Disney Enchantment nighttime spectacular, and you don’t even have to attend a fireworks dessert party to get your hands on them. 

Of course, you need to know what these snacks are and where to get them. Lucky for you, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’ve listed the absolute best Magic Kingdom fireworks snacks. Grab one of these delicious treats before the show begins and you’ll add a bit of extra magic to your Walt Disney World vacation.

Buttered Popcorn

A classic Magic Kingdom snack for enjoying during a show, Disney’s buttered popcorn is an excellent choice. This tasty treat is readily available at popcorn stands throughout the park, and many will appreciate its saltiness after a day of sweet treats in Magic Kingdom park.

Additionally, those on a budget will love that they can buy a refillable popcorn bucket and have a popcorn snack every day of their stay for a very affordable price. Best of all, those refillable popcorn buckets can also be closed up, making it possible to save leftover popcorn for when you get back to your Disney Resort.

Candied Popcorn

In the mood for popcorn but want something extra special? You might consider getting yourself a batch of candied popcorn. This delicious stuff can be found at the Main Street Confectionery and is absolutely wonderful. Customize your popcorn fireworks snack with syrups and candies, and get ready for an awesome and unique treat that Disney fans are raving about.

Can’t finish it all at once? Don’t worry-like the buttered popcorn, this is also a totally saveable snack, making it an ideal pick for those who just want a taste of something sweet.

Corn Dog Nuggets

Buttered popcorn is one fabulous savory fireworks snack, but it’s far from the only one. The corn dog nuggets served up at Casey’s Corner (and in a couple of other locations on property) are absolutely amazing. We love that Casey’s Corner is in the perfect location for grabbing a snack before the show, making this a super convenient choice.

We also appreciate that the corn dog nuggets are served with fries, creating a combo that could easily be a light meal. This is a major bonus for those who wait until the last minute to grab dinner and need a grab-and-go food they can eat while they wait for and watch the fireworks show.

Dole Whip

On those super hot Florida evenings, a way to cool off while hanging out in a crowded place is always a plus. This is where the beloved Dole Whip comes into play and becomes one of the best Disney Enchantment treats out there.

The classic pineapple Dole Whip is available at Aloha Isle in Adventureland, not too far away from Cinderella Castle and the fireworks spectacular. This quick-service restaurant also serves up pineapple Dole Whip floats, as well as a variety of rotating character and movie inspired treats.

Prefer another flavor over pineapple? Try heading to Sunshine Tree Terrace for the orange flavor, or to Storybook Treats for a lime variety as well as several other ice cream treats.

Mickey Pretzel

It doesn’t get much more magical than a Mickey-shaped treat, and one of our absolute favorite Mickey-shaped foods in any Disney park is the Mickey pretzel.

Not sure where to find this classic Disney snack? As it happens, the Mickey pretzel is served up in a number of places throughout the park, including Liberty Square Market and a number of snack carts. That said, the closest reliable spot to find one when waiting for fireworks is the Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland.

Pro tip: Get the cheese sauce. This stuff really makes the Mickey pretzel experience, and if you happen to dislike it, you can always toss it.

Funnel Cake

Everyone loves a good funnel cake, and a funnel cake in Walt Disney World Resort is extra magical. Those who are looking for a funnel cake in the Magic Kingdom should head to Sleepy Hollow Refreshments, where funnel cakes and dessert waffles are made fresh throughout the day.

The funnel cakes at this snack stop can be ordered with powdered sugar only or with strawberries and powdered sugar. We definitely recommend the latter, but know you will need a fork to enjoy it all without making a giant mess.

Waffle Sandwich

Another amazing snack option found at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments are the waffle sandwiches. In the morning you can get an absolutely incredible fresh fruit waffle sandwich that includes chocolate-hazelnut spread. However, if you’re ordering in the evening, the available option is the equally awesome Sweet-and-Spicy Chicken-Waffle Sandwich.

This yummy sandwich includes a breaded and fried piece of chicken with a honey-sriracha glaze and broccoli slaw on a waffle. This is another example of an excellent light meal on-the-go for those in need of a late night dinner.

Turkey Leg

Last but not least, we must mention the beloved Disney Turkey Leg. This salty and delicious snack can also be found at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments, as well as Gaston’s Tavern and a few other spots.

The gigantic piece of turkey meat is cooked to juicy perfection and is an excellent fireworks snack, as it can be eaten on the go. Just be aware that you probably won’t be able to finish one on your own, so an eating partner is a good idea for this one.

There you have it, 8 wonderful snacks to enjoy while watching the Magic Kingdom fireworks. Grab one of these tasty options and get ready for an incredible show to cap off a day you certainly won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
