Top 10 Snacks at Walt Disney World
From churros to turkey legs, Disney snacks are almost as iconic as the parks themselves. A trip to the Magic Kingdom just isn’t complete without some Dole Whip (vanilla and pineapple swirl all the way!) and everyone needs that Mickey Premium Bar selfie in front of the castle! Going above and beyond the average theme park fare, Disney World has so much more than popcorn and ice cream cones, offering an incredible variety of unique and delicious snacks to choose from. Here are ten of the best snacks in Walt Disney World:
10. Mickey Premium Bar
The classic mouse-eared, chocolate covered treat is a delight for all ages and can be found throughout Disney property. Grab plenty of napkins and prepare to get messy, as these do tend to melt very quickly. Better eat it fast!
These sugary morsels can be found at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon with three dipping sauces to choose from: milk chocolate, raspberry (my favorite!), or white chocolate. Get ‘em by the half or full dozen. They’re warm and fresh and rolled in sugar, to give you the energy to climb the stairs to all those water slides! Once the sugar rush wears off, there’s always the lazy river!
Mr. Kamal’s kiosk near Flights of Wonder in Asia at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a great stop for snacks, especially for vegetarians, offering samosas, hummus, and an Asian noodle salad. My favorite snack from this little stop is the edamame. It comes in the shell, so it’s a little work, but these little beans are filling and delicious. Plus, it’s kind of fun to get in there with your hands and shell them or suck the beans out of their husks. This one definitely wins most interactive snack! And it’s a snack option on the Disney Dining Plan. Edamame can also be found in Epcot at the Katsura Grill in the Japan Pavilion.
7. Jungle Juice Slushie
That’s right! That amazing juice served at Tusker House is now available in slushie form! This sweet, icy combination of guava, orange, and passion fruit juice is the perfect way to beat that Florida summer heat while strolling through Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The slushie can be found at the Harambe Popcorn kiosk in the Africa section of the park at the end of the bridge as you enter Harambe village. The slushie is available in either a souvenir ocarina mug (with musical instrument instruction book!) or for a little cheaper in a regular cup. Make sure to grab an extra straw or ask for a spoon as the paper ones do not hold up well with this chilly snack.
6. Cupcakes from Be Our Guest
Although the grey stuff is delicious, for me, Be Our Guest is all about the cupcakes! They are both beautiful and delectable. For the chocolate lover, the Triple Chocolate Cupcake is made with chocolate sponge cake, filled with chocolate mousse, and topped with ganache. Those who favor a fruitier cupcake should try the Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcake, which is light and sweet, with a custardy cream cheese filling. Those of us who like a little tart with their sweet, should go for the Lemon Meringue Cupcake, a vanilla sponge cake with lemon custard filling and meringue icing.

5. Ficelle Au Lard (Mini-baguette, Bacon, and Herbs)
No one does food quite like the French, and Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie in the France Pavilion at Epcot honors that culinary expectation. The light and bready Ficelle Au Lard is a satisfying, savory snack amidst the many sweet pastries offered at this location. The mini-baguette is herbed and flecked with pieces of smoky bacon. There are also delicious croissants and soups, making the patisserie a great stop for the whole family to find something to snack on with many choices part of the Disney Dining Plan snack option.
4. Kabuki Café Sushi
Sushi is the perfect savory afternoon snack, and what better place to get some than Japan…in Epcot that is. The Kabuki Café menu changes seasonally offering an assortment of sushi that can be purchased with a Disney Dining Plan snack credit! Each serving is about four pieces of sushi, enough to fill you up until mealtime. It’s a light, cool snack that is great on a sunny afternoon.
3. Carrot Cake Cookie
Disney has a lot of great cookies out there, but this one definitely takes the cake, the carrot cake! Two huge, moist, spiced carrot cake cookies filled with a sweet and tangy layer of cream cheese frosting won my affection away from every other cookie in Disney World. Yes, even those buttery, chocolate chip cookies. I don’t even like carrot cake that much, but I absolutely love this cookie! This delightful sweet treat can be found at Sweet Spells in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
2. Dole Whip
A Disney original, available at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Polynesian Resort, this fruity soft-serve is a must try. The Magic Kingdom stand over in Adventureland offers the original pineapple as well as orange and vanilla, or you can have them swirled! Grown-up Dole Whip fans keep an eye out during the Epcot festivals for boozy versions of this sweet treat.
1. Small plates at Epcot
From March to mid-May during the annual Flower and Garden Festival and mid to late September through early-November during the International Food and Wine Festival, Epcot’s World Showcase offers tasting size bites from around the world. These are by far the best way to spend those Disney Dining Plan snack credits! I always, always, always go for the tacos!
