It wasn’t easy to narrow down the list, but we’ve compiled our top 10 choices for snacks throughout WDW. Look closely. Some of these gastric delights are actually good for you. Next time you’re feeling a bit peckish but don’t want an entire meal, try one of these in-between treats!
Warning: With so many food choices throughout Walt Disney World, visitors often discover they leave Orlando a little plumper than when they arrived. This article is not designed to help solve this problem. Enjoy!
10. Baked Sweet Potatoes
Healthy and delicious? Where do we sign up? This buttery favorite, which can be found at the Liberty Square Market in Magic Kingdom‘s Liberty Square, serves up the perfect combination of carbs and nutrients to make it through an active afternoon.
9. Peanut Butter and Jelly Milk Shake
A chilly ice cream beverage and the Florida heat go hand-in-hand. Forget about cola. Let’s indulge in this sweet and savory treat at either Tune-In Lounge or 50’s Prime Time Café in Disney’s Hollywood Studios‘ Echo Lake District.
8. Nudel Gratin
Sometimes you just need comfort food, and this baked Mac ‘N’ Cheese dish at World Showcase’s Germany Pavilion fits the bill.
7. Cinnamon Rolls
When Starbucks took over the bakery on Main Street, guests panicked at the thought of losing these giant sticky rolls. Not to worry! These tasty treats are now available in Gaston’s Tavern! Grab a seat with a friend at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland to enjoy one of these huge pastries. (You need at least two people snacking to polish off one of these mega-rolls!)
6. Tangierine Couscous Salad
Health food alert! This salad at Morocco‘s Tangierine Café combines everything good including wholesome grains, exotic spices, and refreshing fruit. The flavors make you want to take a trip to the exotic city of Marrakesh!
5. Mini Donuts with Dipping Sauce
Freshly…Made…Donuts. Need we say more? Stop by the mini Donuts Stand at Blizzard Beach to indulge!
4. Chocolate Mousse
Yet another top ten from Epcot‘s World Showcase. Honestly, we could have chosen any item off of the incredible menu in France. But pure, dark chocolate heaven from Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie won out.
3. Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
Sleepy Hollow is one of the most popular snack stands at Walt Disney World offering everything from savory chicken waffle sandwiches to decadent funnel cakes. Our favorite happens to be this sweet take on a breakfast favorite. Did we mention it has fresh fruit on top? That makes it health food in our book!
2. Dole Whip Pineapple Float
Dole Whip is a fan favorite soft-serve ice cream flavor! For a long time, it was available only at Magic Kingdom’s Aloha Isle in Adventureland. It can now be found at every park except Hollywood Studios.
If you want this frozen refreshment floating atop a cup of sweet and tangy pineapple juice, you’ll need to make a trip to Magic Kingdom or the Polynesian Resort. If you want to turn it into an adult libation, how about adding a shot of rum? You can try this concoction at Epcot or Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
There is only one sensational sweet that could knock Dole Whip off its pedestal. These freshly made pillow pastries at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory sprinkled with powdered sugar put Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort on the map – at least where Disney locals are concerned. Just let one of the parking security attendants know you’re on a mission for this popular puff pastry. They’ll be expecting you!
