10 Walt Disney World Snacks You Must Try
Yes, this is a whole post dedicated to our favourite Disney Snacks.
When it came to researching our trip to Walt Disney World earlier this year, one of my main priorities was finding out what Disney shaped snacks we would be be able to eat. And where to find them. It’s true. Disney food is totally a thing. Second to that was finding Instagram Walls, the more serious planning I left to Mr H.
Back to Walt Disney World Snacks – oh my goodness. Talk about information overload. And a rumbly tummy after seeing so many photos of both sweet and savoury snacks. And let’s not forget drinks. There are just so many and I’m certain that we only scratched the surface. Unless you have a Disney Dining Plan it goes without saying that I would recommend a Disney Snack budget as when it comes to choosing it’s just not that easy. We all had our favourites to look out for and thankfully we found some of them. And so here are…
10 Walt Disney World Snacks You Must Try
1. Mickey shaped pretzel
We found ours in Magic Kingdom near to Dumbo. However you’ll find this tasty snack all around Walt Disney World Parks. They are yummy. George enjoyed dunking his in the cheese dipping sauce. Not for me, I prefer plain. A great snack in between meals.
2. Nom Nom Cookie
You can buy this from the Neighbourhood Bakery in Pixar Place. Jack Jack’s nom nom cookies are huge warm chocolate chip cookies, they are delicious and great for sharing as a family. We enjoyed one as a family as a quick snack between rides however if I had my time again I would enjoy this on my own whilst the boys were on a ride. Ps if you hadn’t guessed so this was my favourite.
3. Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich
A Mickey Ice Cream Bar or Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich. A great snack for little ones (have tissues ready as it can get messy). George enjoyed one most days however because of the heat when we visited in April you must eat them quick. You’ll find them on sale throughout the parks. Not really big enough to share.
4. The Night Blossom drink
Oh my goodness this was a taste sensation. We all enjoyed indulging in this one. There is an alcoholic version but we opted for the family friendly version. It was by far the most refreshing drink on our trip to Orlando. You can buy this Night Blossom drink in Pandora. We drank ours in the queue for Flight of Passage.
5. Lightsaber Churros
These were so much fun. We all enjoyed them. We actually received ours as part of the Star Wars Tour we did in Hollywood Studios – they were available in Backlot Express and very yummy indeed. I have since seen others sharing them so feel fairly certain you can buy them as a day guest to the park.
I know I’ve already mentioned pretzels but I couldn’t resist sharing this one. Just look at the size of it. It actually fed all three of us and was a great snack. You can find these large pretzels dotted around the parks, we picked ours up in Pandora, Animal Kingdom.
7. Cinnamon Bun
The greatest snack ever. They can be found in Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom. These things are MASSIVE and so so tasty. The perfect snack to share as a family. We actually had two with coffees and shared them between the three of us as a mid morning snack. Gaston’s Tavern was in a really quiet spot near to the Severn Dwarfs Mine Train. Such a tasty treat. Maybe even our family favourite.
8. Dumbo’s Magic Feather Brownie
What a treat. The brownie can be found in Storybook Circus at Magic Kingdom. This brownie was delicious, and smelt good too. George didn’t really share it with me so in all honesty I cannot vouch for its yumminess – so you’ll have to take George’s word for it.
9. Mickey Shaped Cookie
We found this huge cookie at one of the bakeries over at the Boardwalk. We made the journey over at the end of one of our days in Hollywood Studios. Honestly it’s a must visit. We ate takeaway pizza on the Boardwalk followed by this delicious cookie for dessert. I’m only sad that I had to share it with George.
10. Milkshake & a Burger at SciFi Diner
Now I know this isn’t really a Disney snack but I couldn’t resist adding it to the list. We didn’t really eat in any of the restaurants in the Disney Parks so I wanted to share this milkshake and burger with you as it was so good. The setting is brilliant. We were entertained by old school cartoons which George loved. It is expensive and really difficult to get a table but it was so worth it. I felt like we were in a scene from Grease or Happy Days!
And then there was the food we missed
Not eating in Harambe market is probably our biggest regret. As was not managing to find a Dole Whip and Hei Hei Cone. We very nearly indulged in a Dumbo Popcorn Bucket which looked so much fun. Sadly we never found the Mini Mickey shaped Waffles or made it over to Disney’s Beach Club for a Milkshake. We also never managed to enjoy The Kitchen Sink from the Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor and I still think about the Mickey Whoopie Pies. And lets not forget Woody’s Lunch Box – we never managed to stop for treats as we were so busy zooming around on Slinky Dog Dash.
