Dole Whip- Magic Kingdom

We are going to start with the iconic Dole Whip as our first snack that shouldn’t be skipped in Walt Disney World.  Although you can still find the classic Dole Whip in Magic Kingdom at Aloe Isle in Adventureland, there are numerous unique flavors and styles now to choose from.

New favorites are coconut, raspberry, and lime all of which can be in floats or even swirls.  These are super popular items so make sure that you mobile order to save yourself time waiting in line.

Ice Cream Bar

Mickey Bar/ Mickey Sandwich

Two classic and iconic treats in Walt Disney World are the Mickey Bars and the Mickey Ice Sandwich.  These are found at almost all of the snack carts as well as in the gift shops and quick-service locations at Disney Resorts.

We know that you might think “I can get these at my local grocery store or Target”, but we assure you they aren’t the same.  These delicious treats are actually bigger in Disney as well as just a little more magical.

Make sure to try one (or both of these) during your Walt Disney World vacation.

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich- Disney’s Animal Kingdom

In Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we highly recommend stopping by Dino-Bites in DinoLand for one of the ice cream sandwiches.

Guests can usually always find the classic ice cream cookie sandwich which is vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate chip cookies.

Also found here are specialty sandwiches throughout the year.  Right now Guests can enjoy the 50th Celebration Ice Cream Sandwich.  This is still vanilla ice cream, but this time it has two double chocolate chip cookies with celebration sprinkles and a 50th-anniversary logo.

These sweet treats are big enough to share making them a great choice on those hot summer days.


Jack-Jack’s Num Num Cookie- Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Looking for an amazing cookie while on vacation?  Look for further than the Jack-Jack Num Num Cookies in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  These warm, delicious cookies are found in the Pixar Studio-inspired area right before you enter Toy Story Land.

You might think that these are just chocolate-chip cookies, but these are not the typical chocolate-chip cookies that you can bake at home.  These cookies are so much bigger, softer, and overall amazing.  Make sure you stop by to experience Jack-Jack’s Num Num Cookies during your Disney vacation.

We are going to now transition from sweet treats to more savory treats.  It might be surprising to know that Disney does a fantastic job with some outstanding savory snack options.

Mickey Pretzel

Mickey Pretzel

One of our favorite treats in Walt Disney World is the Mickey Pretzels you can find at snack carts throughout the four Theme Parks.  These warm and salty treats hit the spot as a mid-day snack with the cheese dip as well.

Even though there isn’t anything overly exciting or special about these Mickey Pretzels, they are still a top 10 treat for us when in Walt Disney World.  There is something magical about eating them while hanging out on the hub grass while watching the castle.

Spring Rolls- Magic Kingdom

Right outside of Adventureland in Magic Kingdom is one of the most popular snacks in all of Walt Disney World- the spring rolls.  These savory snacks took the Magic Kingdom by storm and the popularity hasn’t slowed down yet.

Although the offerings and flavors change, Guests can usually find the cheeseburger spring rolls along with either a pepperoni spring roll, or right now they have a special 50th spring roll that is pastrami and pepper jack cheese.

These are extremely popular so make sure you line up early to get these savory snacks.  Try one of each!

Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Pulled Pork- Disney’s Animal Kingdom

For a savory option that could be a meal, check out the baked macaroni & cheese with pulled pork at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Located at Eight Spoon Cafe, these cheesy and savory treats are a perfect choice.

If you don’t care for pull pork, there are other options to choose from as well.  We enjoy this savory snack as something different.

Cheeseburger Pods- Disney’s Animal Kingdom

This might be considered a meal; however, if you share them we think it is a snack.  The cheeseburger pods at Satu’li Canteen are a top snack choice when looking for something savory.

Taking just like a cheeseburger, these pods are a great way to get some protein without having a large meal.  You can get two in an adult meal or one in a kids meal depending on how much you need to eat.

Waffle Sandwiches- Magic Kingdom

Another fantastic savory or sweet option is the waffles from Sleepy Hollow.  These aren’t your typical waffles, but waffle sandwiches are full of deliciousness.  In the morning, Guests can enjoy the Nutella waffle that features Nutella spread and fresh fruit on a crispy waffle.  For lunch and supper, the sweet-and-spicy chicken-waffle sandwich.  This sandwich has a honey-sriracha glazed chicken with broccoli slaw on the crispy, warm waffle.

No matter if you are wanting a sweet or savory option, these waffles at Sleepy Hollow are a top choice.


You might think that this is silly, but we do have Disney popcorn on our top 10 snack list.  You might think that all popcorn is the same, but we would argue that there is something special about Disney popcorn.

You can find popcorn throughout all the Theme Parks and can even enjoy flavored popcorn in some Parks.

If you are a big popcorn fan, we recommend looking into a popcorn bucket where you can get cheap $2 refills throughout your stay.

This is a great option for keeping little ones entertained and from getting hangry during those long touring days.

Those are our top ten snacks in Walt Disney World that we think should be enjoyed each Disney vacation.  These snacks are a great mixture of sweet, savory, classic, and unique.  We hope that this list will help you determine what snacks to have on your must-have list.
