When Guests enjoy a vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort, one of their favorite things to do is indulge in snacks that they would never get to try at home. There are plenty of iconic eats that have come to be favorites over the years like Turkey Legs, Dole Whips, the Mickey Pretzel, Caramel Corn from Karamell-Kuche, School Bread, ice cream sundaes, and many more, but most of the known options are found in the Disney Parks.
While there are certainly great snacks to enjoy at the four Disney Parks, the Disney Resorts at the Walt Disney World Resort also boast a number of delicious and unique snacks that cannot be found anywhere else on property. From savory to sweet and everything in between, let’s check out some of the best snacks at the Walt Disney World Resort that can only be found at Disney Resorts!
Contempo Café – Peanut Butter Pie
Disney’s Contemporary Resort can be found just steps from the Magic Kingdom and features a modern architectural style that is home to several popular dining locations like the quick service Contempo Café. This dining location is located on the Grand Canyon Concourse at the Disney Resort and serves up fresh meals and bakery items for breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day. Contempo Café is also home to one of the most indulgent peanut butter snacks at the Walt Disney World Resort with the Peanut Butter Pie which features a vanilla tart shell filled with smooth custard and peanut butter that is topped with chocolate ganache and crispy chocolate pearls for a bit of crunch.
Roaring Fork – Roaring S’more
Another popular quick service location at a Disney Resort is Roaring Fork located at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge behind Disney’s Contemporary Resort on Bay Lake. This rustic Disney Resort evokes the spirit of adventure found in the lodges of the National Parks and that theme is extended into Roaring Fork which serves up hearty meals throughout each day. Guests who stop by the quick service location can also enjoy the Roaring S’more, a unique take on traditional s’mores which tops a graham cracker cake with creamy chocolate mousse, and caramel marshmallow.
Scat Cat’s Club – Café – Mickey-shaped Beignets
Everything is more delicious when it is Mickey-shaped, and a perfect example can be found at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter. The Disney Resort brings the celebratory spirit of New Orleans to life and the quick service Scat Cat’s Club – Café serves up a popular treat from the city with a Disney spin. The Mickey-shaped Beignets are fluffy pockets of dough that are fried until golden and smothered in powdered sugar for a hot and sweet bite that can’t be missed! Guests can also opt to order the Baton Rouge Beignets which fill the classic treats with Bailey’s, Kahlua, or RumChata.
Enchanted Rose – Truffle Fries
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort features an upscale, elegant theme of Victorian charm and opulence and the wonderful atmosphere continues in Enchanted Rose, a popular lounge where Guests can enjoy a menu of specialty beverages with subtle nods to Beauty and the Beast. Open each afternoon and evening to Guests, Enchanted Rose also features a limited menu of flavorful snacks and small meals including the Truffle Fries which are served hot and crispy and topped with shaved black truffles and eighteen month aged shaved parmesan for a salty bite.
Pineapple Lanai – Dole Whip with Rum Floater
Dole Whips are one of the most iconic snacks at the Walt Disney World Resort that originated in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom at Aloha Isle and the Sunshine Tree Terrace. The classic version of the treat features Dole Whip Pineapple soft serve that can be enjoyed alone, swirled with vanilla, or in float form with pineapple juice. While the original is amazing, Guests who are looking to take their Dole Whip to a new level as a cocktail can head over to Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. This quick service location found just outside of the Great Ceremonial House serves up the Dole Whip with Rum Floater which tops a classic Dole Whip Pineapple with Parrot Bay Coconut Rum and also offers the option to purchase a souvenir Tiki Sipper.
The Mara – Zebra Domes
One of the most unique snacks at the Walt Disney World Resort can be found at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge in the Disney Resort’s main quick service location. The Mara is named after a river found in Tanzania and Kenya and welcomes Guests to dine on breakfast, lunch, and dinner underneath a canopy of trees emulating the savannah. Guests who visit The Mara can also try the unique Zebra Domes which combines baked chocolate mousse and Aarula Cream Liquour then coats the mixture in white chocolate with a chocolate stripe on top to create the look of a zebra. These creamy and sweet bites are definitely worth a trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and are one of the best snacks available!
Banana Cabana – Pineapple Coconut Bread Pudding
Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort brings the laid back and colorful atmosphere of the Caribbean to life and offers up several dining locations that highlight bright and flavorful options from the region.
