Everyone deserves a treat during a day exploring the busy theme parks! Now with the popularity of the Disney Dining Plan (which I’ll refer to here as DDP), the choice of Disney World snacks – both sweet and savoury – is bigger than ever.
There are loads of delicious bites to choose from, but here are my ultimate top 10:
This has to my be my most favourite Disney snack. It is available on the DDP at Gaston’s Tavern in the Magic Kingdom, and the Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe in the Norwegian Pavillion in EPCOT. It is delicious. You can also get them at the Boardwalk Bakery and a ‘Colossal’ version at the Kusafiri Cafe in Animal Kingdom.
This oh-so-good delicacy is available (with cinnamon sugar) on the DDP at Sleepy Hollow Treats in the Magic Kingdom and the Oasis Canteen in Hollywood Studios. You can also buy them in kiosks in the American Adventure in EPCOT and on the Boardwalk. Just don’t watch them making it – then you won’t know how many calories are in it!
Yes, they are as good as they sound! Available on the DDP at the Harambe Fruit Market in Animal Kingdom.
4. Carrot cake cookie
Best. Cookie. EVER! Head straight to The Writer’s Stop in Hollywood Studios (the most wonderful little hideaway in all of Disney World) and it will be the best $3.99/snack credit you ever spend.
5. Dole whip
Cool creamy pineapple ice-cream – so refreshing on a sweltering day. Grab one from Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom or Tamu Tamu in Animal Kingdom (both snack credits on DDP).
6. Egg rolls
A surprisingly filling savoury treat, with both pork or veggie options at the wagon in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom or just meat from the Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafe in Animal Kingdom. A great snack credit.
7. Mickey Ice-creams
Whether it be the Premium Ice-cream Bar or the Ice-cream Sandwich, both of these Mouse shaped treats are scrumptious and readily available in the parks at the carts and kiosks. Both are on the DDP. Just try to eat them before they melt …
8. School bread
A cardamon bun, with vanilla custard and toasted coconut??? Hold me back! If you haven’t ventured to the Kringla Bakeri in Norway in EPCOT, shame on you!! (and while you’re there, grab me a cinnamon roll please). DDP accepted
Any kind of cupcake looks and tastes good in my opinion, but at Disney World they are sensational. My favourites are the limited edition seasonal ones – like the pumpkin Halloween delicacy. There are many variations to try but here are a few of the best places to try:
- Studio Catering Company and Starring Rolls (Hollywood Studios)
- Kusafiri Bakery (Animal Kingdom)
- Be Our Guest – The Master’s Cup Cake, (“try the grey stuff, it’s delicious!”) Big Top Souvenirs (Magic Kingdom)
- Sunshine Seasons Food Court (EPCOT)
Great for snack credits and for filling a gap before rushing off to that next ride …
Cinnamon flavoured donutty goodness…. YUM. You’ll be drawn in by their amazing smell at the cart in Frontierland Magic Kingdom and Dino Bites in Animal Kingdom. You can also get “Churritos” from La Catina de San Angle in Mexico, EPCOT. All are available on the DDP.
