Save Money In Disney: Turn Snacks Into Meals

We love eating at Walt Disney World, but sometimes there is just too much food or too much food we want to try.  If you want to save some money and some full stomachs, think about turning these snacks into a meal.

Take a look at our suggestions and then make your list of must-get treats today!

Cinnamon Roll

Colossal Cinnamon Roll- Disney’s Animal Kingdom

If you are looking for a delicious breakfast option, check out the colossal cinnamon roll at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Found at the Kusafiri Coffee Shop and Bakery, this is an excellent option to share.

The combination of icing, syrup, sweet and cinnamon makes this large cinnamon roll worth the mess it will make.

Loaded Buffalo Tots- Magic Kingdom

Add a little spicy to your day with some loaded tots at Friar’s Nook in Magic Kingdom.  These tots have chicken, buffalo sauce and cheese making it a delicious snack or meal to share.

If you aren’t a fan of spicy food, consider looking to see if they have any other options.  We like the creamy bacon macaroni and cheese tots as well.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese- Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Speaking of macaroni and cheese- if you are a fan of cheesy goodness, make sure to stop by Eight Spoon Safe in Disney’s Animal Kingdom and try the different macaroni and cheese options.

You can add pulled pork or shrimp a lot of times to make it into a great meal option for less.

Totchos- Disney’s Hollywood Studios

And if you are a fan of the tots, Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land has totchos which is a fantastic combination of tots (potato barrels in Disney speak), beef, bean chili, shredded cheese, queso, fritos, sour cream and green onions.

Although this might not be the meal of choice in the middle of the summer months, it is fantastic.

Soup and Tots- Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Also found at Woody’s Lunch Box is tomato-basil soup and a side of tots.  You can order each of these individually to have a nice, light meal with some comfort food.

Again, not a top choice when it comes to summer months, but the soup is flavorful and delicious.

Liberty Square WAffle

Speciality Waffles- Magic Kingdom

We love fresh waffles, and the specialty options from Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom are outstanding. You can choose between the fresh fruit waffle sandwich at breakfast or the sweet and spicy chicken waffle sandwich for lunch and supper (with chips).

The fruit waffle is covered in Nutella and has fresh fruit, including strawberries, blueberries, and bananas.

The chicken waffle has a honey-sriracha glaze with a broccoli slaw that is the perfect combination. These two are delicious and offer the perfect sweet or spicy option depending on our mood and what Disney snack you are looking for that day.

We are thrilled that Sleepy Hollow joined the mobile ordering option as this extremely popular location had long lines throughout the day.

Beaches and Cream

Kitchen Sink- Beaches and Cream at Disney’s Beach Club Resort

Found at Beaches and Cream over at Disney’s Beach Club, the kitchen sink is an iconic Disney snack. The kitchen sink now comes in three different versions: original kitchen sink, Neapolitan, and chocolate lovers.

No matter which one you choose, you need to be ready to dig in. Not only does it include a variety of ice cream scoops, but it also includes EVERY, yes EVERY, topping in the house.

This means not only your beloved sprinkles but also brownies, pound cake, Oreos, and don’t forget a whole can of whipped cream. This is a huge challenge but one that is super fun!

Pork Egg Rolls and Chicken Fried Rice- Disney’s Animal Kingdom

For a more savory option, check out Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes in Animal Kingdom. Here you can get two pork egg rolls or a pint of chicken fried rice. These are outstanding options if you want to turn a savory snack into lunch. The fried rice portion is huge, making it shareable, especially for kids.

Funnel Cakes- Disney’s Hollywood Studios

We don’t think that normal funnel cakes are a shareable meal; however, the amazing ones found at Epic Eats in Disney’s Hollywood Studios are a game changer.

There are two flavors to choose from, and you can’t go wrong with either. One has strawberry topping and soft-serve vanilla ice cream, or if you are a chocolate fan, you can try the cookies n’ cream option.

Air Pirate’s Cargo Loaded Pretzel- Disney Springs

If you find yourself hungry in Disney Springs, stop in at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar. Here you can get the amazing air pirate cargo loaded pretzel.

This isn’t just a normal Disney pretzel. This comes with Prosciutto, Sliced Brats, Artisan Pepperoni, Smoked Cheddar, Black Diamond Cheddar, Caraway Pickles, Spicy Mustard, and Beer Cheese Fondue along with a very large pretzel. You won’t be sorry if you choose this as your lunch.

Turning some of the amazing and delicious snacks into a meal at Walt Disney World is a fantastic way to save money as well as eat a little less.

There are so many excellent options when it comes to snack and dining at Walt Disney World that it is often hard to get it all in during a Disney vacation.  By sharing, Guests are able to enjoy more throughout their trip.

What amazing Walt Disney World snack are you going to put on your must get list?
