Secret Disney Snacks You Don’t Want to Skip

Walt Disney World is full of fun, Mickey-shaped snacks. From the iconic Mickey ice cream sandwich to the salty Mickey pretzel, Guests visiting Walt Disney World love these iconic treats. Although we agree that you should enjoy a Mickey-shaped snack during your trip, there are a lot of other snacks you might be missing out on if that is all you enjoy.

We want to share some secret snacks you can find throughout Walt Disney World. These delicious treats aren’t as well known as the Dole Whip or churros, but they are just as delicious. Look at secret snacks you won’t miss during your Walt Disney World vacation.

EPCOT is full of excellent snacks, especially during the festivals that take place throughout the year. As you enjoy some small bites from festival booths, check out these snack carts.

Canada Popcorn Cart- Canada Pavilion

If you love popcorn with a bit of sweetness, head to the popcorn cart in Canada. Here you can find maple popcorn. You can use your refillable popcorn buckets here to enjoy this delicious treat at a discounted price. Make sure you snag some to share as you walk around World Showcase.

Kabuki Cafe- Japan Pavilion

Another trendy and refreshing option is at Kabuki Cafe in the Japan Pavilion. Here you can find a variety of snacks, but the most popular choice is the shaved ice called Kakigori. You can choose from various flavors such as rainbow, strawberry, melon, tangerine, or blue raspberry. Consider getting your shaved ice with the sweet milk topping for an extra unique flavor.

This is the perfect treat during a hot day in EPCOT. Grab your treat and then enjoy some live entertainment around World Showcase.

Lotus Blossom Cafe- China Pavilion

If you want a savory snack, head to Lotus Blossom Cafe in the China Pavilion. Here you can get a small order of pork egg rolls or chicken pot stickers. This is a lovely, savory snack that isn’t too heavy. We like to grab one of these and explore this fantastic pavilion.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

We love the unique snack options throughout Disney’s Animal Kingdom. There are excellent snack carts and windows throughout the Park, perfect for a quick snack on the go.

Mr. Kamal’s Seasoned Fries- Asia

As the name gives away, Mr. Kamal’s has fresh and well-seasoned fries. These are extremely good, and with the dipping sauce, you won’t be sorry you picked these as your snack. If you are a fan of fries, don’t miss out!

Harambe Fruit Market- Africa

When in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, stop at Harambe Fruit Market. Not only can you find fresh fruit, which your body might be craving, but you can also find the famous grilled corn on the cob.

This corn is prevalent as Guests love the buttery goodness and African spices that come with it. You might not want hot corn on the cob during the summer months at Disney, but you will be satisfied if you can power through.

Muppets Vision 3D

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

You won’t find as many snack options that knock it out of the Park at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but we have a couple to share.

Gelato Cart- Muppets Courtyard

We recently saw a new cart in the Muppets Courtyard area. This gelato cart typically has around seven flavors for Guests to choose from. Flavors such as lemon, strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate are staples. Gelato is a refreshing treat during a day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Kat Saka’s Kettle- Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Another excellent option for popcorn lovers is to try out the Outpost Popcorn mix found back in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Kat Saka’s Kettle. This popcorn is a combination of both sweet and spicy popcorn that comes in fun flavors. You can’t use your refill bucket here, so remember that as you make your snack decision.

Market- Pixar Plaza

We know that most Guests visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios have this sweet treat on their must-do list, but just in case, we wanted to make sure you know about it. Back before entering Toy Story Land in Pixar Plaza, you will find the cart with Jack-Jack Num Num Cookies. Don’t skip this sweet treat!

If you are super creative, consider getting a cookie and then finding some ice cream at Hollywood Scoops for an ice cream cookie sandwich.

Magic Kingdom

You will find snack carts throughout Magic Kingdom but focus on these top snacks.

Cheshire Cafe- Fantasyland

Many of us rush past Cheshire Cafe to get to Fantasyland. Don’t make this mistake. Make sure you head back to enjoy the Cheshire Cat Tail. This delicious pastry is designed to look like the Cheshire Cat with pink and purple frosting. You can also find fun drinks here, but we focus primarily on the pastry.

Westward ho

Westward Ho- Frontierland

If you are looking for a quick and savory bite, consider stopping at Westward Ho in Frontierland. During breakfast, you will find breakfast sandwiches and donut holes. For lunch and dinner, you can enjoy corn dog nuggets, candied bacon, and jalapeno poppers. This location typically remains slow, especially in the morning, so stop here for breakfast.

Knowing where to find fun snacks while visiting Walt Disney World is all part of the magic. We hope you enjoy some of these secret snack options throughout the four Disney Parks. From savory to sweet, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
