On a Budget? These Are the Best Value Snacks at Disney World!

Looking for the best values to stretch your snack budget at Walt Disney World? We’ve got some picks for our must-try snacks at each Disney theme park that will help you stretch your dollar and your taste buds.

For this list, we’re excluding the items you can find all over Walt Disney World. So you won’t find popcorn, churros, pretzels, Mickey Premium Bars, or DOLE Whips here, but they are reasonably priced compared to some other Disney snacks and you should certainly try those, too! Let’s get into our picks…

School Bread, Kringla og Bakeri Kafe

School Bread from Kringla Bakeri og Kafe in EPCOT’s Norway pavilion is not only a totally unique sweet treat you are unlikely to find in your local bakery, but it is also delicious and filling. Coming in at just under $5, the School Bread is made with a sweet bread roll filled with vanilla custard. It is topped with icing and shredded coconut, and while sort of simple is unlike any other desserts at Walt Disney World.

Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie EPCOT France Pavilion

Speaking of EPCOT, did you know you can purchase an entire baguette in the France pavilion?! Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie sells a whole baguette for just $3.50 (or a half for $2.25, but at that point you might as well “splurge” on the whole.)

A baguette may seem like a boring theme park snack, but we promise these are delicious. They are made in-house and are fresh out of the oven when you order them. And of course, they are quite shareable making them an excellent value!

BaseLine Taphouse Charcuterie

In Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the California Cheese and Charcuterie Plate from BaseLine Taphouse is just $10, making it a steal compared to similar items at Disney table service restaurants.

The Charcuterie Plate is shareable, especially if you order a pretzel as well ($9), and you can stretch the value even further by pairing it with a beer flight which includes four five-oz. glasses of brews of your choice.

Satu’li Canteen is one of the most popular restaurants in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and for good reason! One of the most popular items here is the Cheeseburger Steamed Pod – Bao Buns. They come stuffed with ground beef, ketchup, mustard, pickle, and cheddar cheese, and are served alongside a vegetable slaw and veggie chips. At $12.79 for two buns, this is a great lunch you can share with a friend for a filling meal for about $6 each.

Casey's Corner

What would a Disney snack list be without the Magic Kingdom? For a budget-friendly, shareable snack, head over to Casey’s Corner. Corn dog nuggets only cost about $10 (though you’ll need to pay extra for some delicious “plastic cheese”) but they are totally shareable and a filling snack for $5/person if split with a friend.

Our last pick seems to fly under the radar so you may not have known about it before, but it is certainly worth the try if you are in the Magic Kingdom looking for breakfast. The Friar’s Nook in Fantasyland has a limited breakfast menu that includes sausage gravy and tots. The gravy makes this side of tots rather filling, and for just $5 you can feel satisfied after breakfast on the go without spending time or money at a table service restaurant.

Be sure to add these snacks to your list and have a magical time exploring the foodie side of Walt Disney World during your next trip!
