13 Disney World Snack Foods You Simply Must Try

turkey leg

Let's Recap!

1. Turkey leg

It may be generous to place Disney’s famous turkey legs in a “snack” category, but since they’re best when eaten on the go and they’re only found in snack carts they may technically be considered a snack option. Coming in at just over 1,000 calories a leg (and about $12) we’d say the turkey leg is a very shareable snack option. These savory items have earned themselves a sort of cult following over the years, so if eating an entire turkey leg isn’t really your speed you can always pick up a hat, t-shirt, or magnet instead.

2. Cinnamon roll

For a sweet larger than life snack experience, head over to Gaston’s Tavern in the Magic Kingdom. The Tavern serves a variety of small bites that change seasonally along with a selection of sweets including mammoth cinnamon rolls covered in sweet icing. They can easily be shared among two or three people (but if you’d rather have one for yourself we wouldn’t judge you for it!). After snacking on a cinnamon roll, you can even stick around the Tavern to meet Gaston!

3. Flavored popcorn

You can always purchase flavored kettle corn from gift shops around the Walt Disney World Resort, but the popcorn we’re talking about here is specifically found in Epcot. While in Future World, visit the cart located between the Imagination and Land pavilions to try a variety of flavored popcorns. Buffalo Bleu Cheese is the fan favorite here, but you can mix and match all of the varieties so be sure to taste a bit of each.

4. Churros

Churros can be found in numerous locations around all of the theme parks, and these sugary (and addicting treats) are perfect for indulging in your sweet tooth while strolling through the parks. For a more manageable churro experience, visit La Cantina de San Angel in Epcot’s Mexico pavilion and grab an order of churritos, they’re much smaller than the standard Disney churros and they’re easy to share.

5. Mickey premium bar

Is your Disney trip really complete if you didn’t have a Mickey premium bar? This is another snack that can be found all of the theme parks and even at some of the quick service restaurants at the resorts. Not a chocolate person? Most carts that sell Mickey premium bars also offer fruit flavored popsicles and frozen lemonade.  

6. Cheeseburger spring rolls

This Adventureland treat had disappeared for about a year or so, but it’s recently returned! A small cart between the Jungle Cruise and Pirates of the Caribbean is the only place to pick up this uniquely Disney snacks. Each order comes with two spring rolls so you can easily share them… or keep them for yourself.

7. Zebra Domes

One of the most unique snacks at the Walt Disney World Resort is the Zebra Domes, found at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. These chocolate and cream desserts offer a distinctly memorable flavor due to Amarula Liquor being one of the main ingredients. Try one for yourself at the buffet at Boma, or grab a box to-go from The Mara.

8. Corn dog nuggets

Corn dog nuggets are the perfect shareable treat, and lighter alternative to the popular chili cheese dog from Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom. These battered mini-hot dogs are a great pre-parade snack, or a nice meal when you add a side of fries and a drink. Although it’s an extra cost now, be sure to add a side of cheese sauce for dipping!

9. Waffle sandwiches

For a sweet or savory waffle sandwich, visit Sleepy Hollow Refreshments in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom. Waffle options here include fresh fruit and nutella and seasonal rotations of savory fried chicken options. Not in the mood for waffles? Order funnel cake instead-- you can get it plain, with powdered sugar, or topped with strawberries and whipped cream.

10. Cookie dough

Edible cookie dough is the latest trend to hit the foodie scene, and Disney has finally gotten on board with this by adding their own variety. You can find this cookie dough right in the food court at All Star Sports-- so you may be re-thinking your opinions of Disney’s value resorts and making them a foodie destination during your trip!

11. Beignets

Beignets are available at Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts, and they’ve recently changed up their look- they’re now Mickey shaped! Matching their Disneyland counterparts, you can still get them in  orders of three or six, but now they’re shaped like the Mouse himself. For the best dessert experience, order them topped with ice cream.

12. Dole whip

Years ago the only place to get the sweet and refreshing taste of Dole Whip was in Adventureland, but now you can find some version of this treat in multiple locations around the Walt Disney World Resort. In addition to the Magic Kingdom, forms of Dole Whips have made their way over to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and even select resorts like Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Order as a float, just pineapple soft serve, or with pineapple and vanilla swirl.

13. Joffrey’s donuts

Joffrey’s donuts are not only larger than life (and absolutely delicious) but they’re perfect for sharing and they make a great on-the-go breakfast. You can find Joffrey’s in all of the theme parks and at select resorts and Disney Springs, and each kiosk comes stocked with a variety of donuts, coffee, tea, and specialty beverages.
