There is something about the food in Disneyworld that makes you go mmm . . . Everything tastes better on a Disney vacation.
Here is my attempt at a "Top 10 Disneyworld Snacks" list. This is super hard to do because there are so many I love. I will probably change my mind as soon as this is written. Please keep in my that this is MY Top 10. There are many snack that did not make my list but are up there in the deliciousness rating.
Please comment and share your top snacks!
#10: Croissant Berry Bread Pudding
This can be found at Sunshine Seasons in EPCOT's Land Pavillion. This is a great breakfast snack for your early mornings at EPCOT and is a good use of a snack credit. It is not too sweet, but has a subtle, buttery flavor paired with the berry and cinnamon. It is very moist as you would expect from a bread pudding, without being weighed down and soggy.
#9: Jungle Juice Slush
This can be found at Mahindi in Disney’s Animal Kingdom which is a food cart just outside of Tusker House. If you love the Jungle Juice served at Tusker House, you will love this slushy version.
. . . great anytime of day and it is super refreshing. It is a mix of Passion Fruit, Orange, and Guava juices. It is also served at 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast, but it is called Liliko'i Juice.
#8: PB&J Milkshake
Found at 50's Prime Time in Hollywood Studios. You do not have to dine in to order the milkshake. This is a very popular item to order for take out -- perfect for two!
#7: Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzel
Found in Magic Kingdom at The Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland. These are ridiculous. I could eat 3 at once. These tasty treats are also available on the Disney Cruise ships.
#6: Fish and Chips
The Yorkshire County Fish Shop in the UK Pavillion in EPCOT offer fish and chips. Yes this is a great snack. It is very busy here so the fish is very fresh and always nice and hot. It is cooked perfectly. Exactly what you want when you order fish and chips. There isn't really much seating, if any, so this is a great treat to walk with or sit on a curb. And the price is a big higher than your average snack, but cheaper than a meal. You get two pieces of fish and some "chips" at about $10. . . . great shareable snack item.
This can be found in the Norway Pavillion in EPCOT at the Kringla Bakery Go Cafe. You cannot go wrong with any treat from Kringla but School Bread is a must. School bread is very unique. It is a sweet cardamom bun filled with a creamy custard and topped with toasted coconut and more vanilla cream. It is not an overly sweet dessert and the star is definitely the cream filling.
#4: LeFous Brew and Cinnamon Bun
I guess I am cheating a bit with adding these two together. They are both found at Gaston's Tavern in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom. If you are lucky, you might even see Gaston at the Tavern.
Despite the word "brew" the drink is alcohol free. It is a sugar-free frozen apple juice with a marshmallow flavored foam on top -- pretty refreshing for a hot day at the park. The cinnamon bun is massive and can easily be shared by two or three people.
This will not come as a shock to anyone. The Dole Whip Float is the perfect snack. It can be found at Aloha Isle at Magic Kingdom. My problem with this location is that it is only available with pineapple soft serve. This is good and I would settle if I had to, but the best Dole Whip Float is at the Polynesian Resort, Pineapple Lanai. Here you can choose either pineapple, vanilla, or pineapple-vanilla swirl for your float. In my opinion, the way to go is vanilla. This is the perfect combination.
Since the Polynesian Resort is a quick stop from Magic Kingdom on the Monorail, it is never too far to stop there and get a vanilla Dole Whip float on your way to the park. You can also get this at Animal Kingdom with Rum at Tamu Tamu refreshments, and sometimes at EPCOT. The picture below is a pineapple float from Aloha Isle.
#2: Mickey Bar
Again, no surprise here. My daughter's #1 snack is the chocolate Mickey bar. This is why it made my list at spot #2. We first discovered this snack of perfection on the Disney Cruise Line, where she had one for dessert every night. (What?? Hey, we were on vacation!)
Once she discovered she could get one in each park, she did! I must say it is truly yummy. The hard chocolate on the outside is dark and rich, and the ice cream is perfectly creamy and full of flavor. Of course, it is shaped like Mickey which makes it taste even better! There is also a Mickey shaped ice cream sandwich with cookies and cream ice cream.
The cronut is available at the Refreshment Port in Epcot's Canada Pavillion. I not a huge fan of donuts or sugary cinnamon mixes, but this snack not only made my Top 10, it made my #1!
It is a cross between a donut and a croissant -- served warm. The inside is flaky perfection. The cronut is big enough to share, but you would regret it. Get your own. Do not miss the cronut!
