30 Essential WDW Snacks

I’m sitting here, writing this, with a plate of cold pizza in one hand, and half my attention on watching the television, where I’m watching Lorelei and Rory eat their body weight in breakfast food. This realization, plunged me into at least five minutes of serious reflection about my eating habits. Now that I’m nearing my late 20s, maybe it’s time to add a few more smoothies, instead of just relying on exercise alone to offset my takeout habit. No matter how much kale I add to my routine, there’s one thing I will never give up – and that’s my Disney Park snack love. Today, we’re listing the thirty essential snacks at Walt Disney World you need to try, for your trip to be complete. Because there’s nothing that says ‘we are getting the most out of our Disney vacation’, like adding several inches to your waistline.

-Dole Whip

Dole Whip is the essential Disney snack. This pineapple soft serve dream is necessary to make your trip complete. Grab your fix at Aloha Isle at The Magic Kingdom, at Tamu Tamu at The Animal Kingdom, or at The Polynesian Village Resort.

-Mickey Pretzels

This iconic shaped salty snack is more delicious because it looks like the boss man – enhance your snack by getting plastic cheese to dip it into.

-Mickey Ice Cream Bars

We don’t know why kind of crack cocaine they’re pouring into the chocolate coating for this Mickey Ice Cream dream, but it taste way better than any ice cream bar we’ve ever had.

-Corn Dog Nuggets

Fun fact – corn dog nuggets, with an ice cold coke, is our favorite snack to have at The Magic Kingdom, when it’s late, and we’re hungry. We go to Casey’s Corner, grab a carton to share, head to the hub grass, and enjoy the late night hours.

-Ice Cream Macarons

Grab one of these cool treats at L’Artisan des Glaces in France in Epcot. They’re delicious, and perfect for Instagram.


Is it a croissant? Is it a donut? Is it the guest of every sugary dream I ever have? These bad boys can be found at The Refreshment Port in Epcot.

-Ohana Bread Pudding

The best news in the world, isn’t that Kim Kardashian is selling contour kits, but that you can get Ohana Bread pudding without an Ohana reservation. Head to The Tambu Lounge, when the craving hits.

-Waffle Sandwiches

We LOVE LOVE LOVE the waffle sandwiches from Sleepy Hollow – both the fruit waffles, and the spicy chicken are fantastic.

-Mickey Waffles

Is there anything as delicious as a Mickey Waffle? While it might seem sadistic to eat one of Mickey’s ears off, its super yummy.

-Ample Hills Ice Cream

Ample Hills isn’t cheap, but it is the best ice cream on property. The ice cream parlor, located on The Boardwalk, is PHENOMENAL, and should be experienced by everyone.

-Zebra Domes

We have a soft spot for Zebra Domes (and by soft spot, I mean they’re our favorite dessert on property). You can get them in a four pack at The Animal Kingdom Lodge at The Mara.

-School Bread

If you’re eating around the world (world showcase that is), you need to try School Bread in Norway. This coconut-y, custard-y treat is everything good in the world.

-The Grey Stuff

If you’re going to Be Our Guest, you have to get The Grey Stuff. Then sing a few bars of the iconic song.


Did you really go to Disney if you didn’t eat a churro? (No, the answer is no).

-Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake

We aren’t big fans of The 50s Prime Time Cafe (mainly because the food tastes like over priced Lean Cuisines), but the milkshakes are top notch, especially the famed Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake.

-Cheshire Tail

The Cheshire Tail isn’t just incredibly photogenic (those shades of millennial pink and lavender though), but the perfect breakfast food when you’re in The Magic Kingdom, and need a sugar fix in the A.M.

-American Dream Slush

You can find this slush, which also has vanilla soft serve, in the American Pavilion. 

-Mac N Cheese Bowls

THESE ARE AMAZING, big enough to be a small meal, and the best use of a snack credit you can use. Grab all of the yumminess at The Animal Kingdom at Eight Spoon Cafe.

-Sriracha loaded fries

These fries are our favorite. We grab them and head down to the tables by the Tree of Life for a break. You can get them at Mr. Kamals at The Animal Kingdom.

-Buffalo Blue Cheese Chips

Trilo-Bites is an essential Animal Kingdom food truck, if for nothing else, these glorious Buffalo Blue Cheese Nachos.

-Turkey Legs

Want to be Disney basic? Walk around with a giant turkey leg. It’s delicious and you won’t regret it.


They’re not Mickey shaped (God knows why), but they are delicious. Head of to Port Orleans and grab yourself a plate.

-Yak and Yeti Fried Rice

Grab this adorable carton of fried rice for the most adorable, filling snack in The Animal Kingdom.

-Lobster Bisque

Grab a cup of Lobster Bisque at the French Bakery – we’ve been told that it’s the same soup that they use at Le Chefs De France, at a fraction of the price.

-Mickey Cinnamon Roll

You know what’s better than a Cinnamon Roll? A giant cinnamon roll, with 340982 calories, that’s shaped like Mickey’s face.

-Sprinkles Cupcakes

Yes, you can get Sprinkles Cupcakes in most major cities, but they’re so darn delicious, that we would be remiss to not mention these morsels of heaven.

-Seasonal Cupcakes

You know what’s better than a cupcake? A holiday cupcake. Pumpkin, or peppermint, adorning cake, is the best thing in the world.

-Chocolate Mousse

Go to the French Bakery and grab some chocolate mousse. This was my father’s favorite dessert when I was growing up, and now it’s mine.

-Cream Cheese Pretzel

Some of our good friends made us try these for the first time a few months ago, because apparently, we don’t try good things by ourselves. These are a MUST.

-Pandora Night Blossom

This new Pandora drink tastes like a less sweet version of a violet lemonade, and it’s perfect for a hot day.

We hope you enjoy snacking around Disney World (because why else are you even going)
