Guests who visit Walt Disney World love enjoying all of the amazing experiences that the four theme parks, two water parks, Disney Resorts, and Disney Springs areas offer. Guests can enjoy attractions, live performances, beautifully decorated and theme areas, and countless dining options. Guests who dine in Walt Disney World can enjoy everything from quick service dining and character meals to full service fine dining experiences and snack cart treats. One of the best things to indulge in on any vacation is dessert, and Walt Disney World certainly has its fair share of decadent and delicious snacks. Disney insiders know the best locations to stop into for snacks, the tastiest options, and how to indulge in desserts on vacation. Here are seven favorite Disney World snacks!
Guests who visit Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter can enjoy a special treat exclusively found at Scat Cat’s Club Cafe. Guests who visit the location can order up either three or six beignets which are fluffy pockets of fried dough smothered in powdered sugar. Originally made famous at Café du Monde in New Orleans’ French Quarter, it is fitting that they can be found at this resort and there is no better way to end a long day in the parks than by indulging in them!
6. Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich
A decadent snack that combines both cooling ice cream and gooey fresh baked cookies can be found in the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in the Magic Kingdom. There guests can choose their favorite hand scooped ice cream flavor and enjoy it wedged between two freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. While this snack is massive and definitely big enough to share, no guest will want to!
5. Popcorn On Main Street
No snack is as iconic as freshly popped popcorn on Main Street. Disney insiders know that the smell always greets them to the park and that the best place to enjoy popcorn is on the curb on Main Street waiting for the parade and gazing at Cinderella Castle. Guests can even order their popcorn in souvenir buckets that change throughout the year to include special ones for holidays and hard ticket holiday events like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
4. Dole Whip
One of the most beloved snacks in all of Walt Disney World can be found both at the Sunshine Terrace in the Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland and two Disney Resorts – Polynesian Village Resort and Pop Century Resort. Refreshing Dole Whips come served in both pineapple and vanilla flavors and are a great snack to cool down with on a hot day in the parks. You can also find different Dole Whip versions at Animal Kingdom… even alcoholic ones!
3. Treats from the Confectionary
Disney insiders who love having candy as a snack absolutely must visit The Confectionary on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom. The store sells candy of every variation including chocolate, rice krispie treats, gummies, chocolate covered pretzels, and cookies. In addition to all of those goodies, The Confectionary also has a counter where guests can watch fresh chocolate, fudge, and candy apples being made as well as a window spot where cotton candy is spun. Disney insiders who love candy know that no visit to the Magic Kingdom is complete without stopping in at The Confectionary for a delicious candy snack!
2. Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
Perhaps the most recognizable snack in Walt Disney World can be found sold at nearly every snack cart throughout the parks as well in many Disney Resort food courts. The Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar features vanilla ice cream coated in milk chocolate on a stick and shaped like Mickey Mouse! Disney insiders may argue over the best way to eat the snack (ears first or eat all of the chocolate shell first?), but they all agree that it is the perfect ice cream treat to enjoy while in Walt Disney World.
1. Mickey Pretzel
A snack that many Disney insiders love to indulge in is a large soft pretzel shaped just like Mickey Mouse! Found in several locations throughout Walt Disney World including a cart in the Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland, Mickey Pretzels are warm, coated in butter, and covered in salt making the a great savory snack. In some locations guests can even order a side of warm gooey cheese to decadently dip their Mickey Pretzel in! Disney insiders who are looking for a delicious snack to indulge in while visiting the parks can never go wrong with a Mickey Pretzel!
