Disney’s Newest Theme Park Snack Has Fans Asking ‘Why?’

What’s your favorite Disney snack? The Walt Disney World Resort is home to some of the most iconic theme park snacks in the country (and perhaps even around the world), with so many fan-favorites like churros, DOLE Whips, turkey legs, and Mickey pretzels, just to name a few.

Disney even has a whole lineup of totally unique theme park snacks that Guests would not find at most other Parks, including the delicious cheeseburger spring rolls found in Adventureland, corn dog nuggets at Casey’s Corner, and so many treats found around EPCOT’s World Showcase. (Along with cupcakes, so many cupcakes….)

Of course, as both foodies and Disney fans, we love when new snacks pop up around Walt Disney World. With the debut of Disney’s latest theme park snack, however, we have to admit we are joining other fans on social media and scratching our heads…

The new Disney Eats marketing arm of Disney Parks just took to Instagram to post one of the newest food offerings to debut at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The new bowls can be found at Fairfax Fare right on Sunset Boulevard near Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and you have to see them to believe them:

That’s right, the newest entrees at Fairfax Fare are savory eats served in….waffle cones? The fillings of each bowl available do sound delicious, but we have to admit we are not sure how putting them inside waffle bones that very much appear to be the same bowls you would serve ice cream in would taste.

Options for the new bowls are listed on Disney’s official website and include:

Barbecued Beef Brisket Bowl
Braised Brisket tossed in Barbecue Sauce topped with Pickled Jalapeños, Red Onion, and Corn Chips served on House-made Queso Sauce and Mashed Potatoes in a Waffle Bowl

Korean Barbecued Pork Belly Bowl
Braised Pork Belly tossed in Korean Barbecue Sauce topped with Korean Salad and Green Onions served on Mashed Potatoes in a Waffle Bowl

Buffalo Chicken Bowl
Chicken Breast Nuggets tossed in Buffalo Sauce and topped with Coleslaw served on Mashed Potatoes in a Waffle Bowl

Plant-based Soba Noodle Salad Bowl
Chilled Soba Noodles, Edamame, Red Cabbage, Red Peppers, Shredded Carrots, Celery, and Green Onions tossed in Yakisoba Sauce served in a Waffle Bowl

Each bowl is priced at $14.79, with the plant-based option at $13.99, making these bowls on the more affordable side of Disney quick-service dining.

Fairfax Fare (and the other quick-service locations on Sunset Boulevard like Catalina Eddie’s and Rosie’s All American Cafe) are admittedly not our favorite places to eat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios as you can often find tastier quick-service options in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Toy Story Land.

However, since Fairfax Fare typically serves hot dogs (that can of course be found all over Walt Disney World) we have to give the restaurant credit for trying something totally new. And who knows, savory entrees served in waffle bowls could be good?

Fans in the comments on the Disney Eats post are also questioning the logic here, but you never know until you try it, so if you are looking for something totally new, you may just want to add Fairfax Fare to your list!
