Best Snacks at Disney World

Best Snacks at Disney World

Everyone has different priorities when planning a Walt Disney World vacation. For some, it’s making sure they ride all of their favorite attractions, and for others, it’s all about those character meet and greets. But no matter what your park touring style and priorities happen to be, there’s a good chance that we can all agree on one thing: The food is one of the best parts of the trip, if not the best part.

Between snagging those in demand dining reservations and drooling over the menus ahead of time, the snacks that you grab between meals are just as important. There are iconic picks that you can find almost anywhere, like churros, along with more unique, park-specific choices (cheeseburger spring rolls, anyone?) but the list of Disney snacks is so long it can be a bit overwhelming. Where do you start?

While of course anything to do with food is always a bit subjective — after all, everyone’s taste is different — there are certain snacks that many visitors have agreed are the ones you absolutely can’t miss. Keep reading for the best snacks at Disney World.

Using the Disney Dining Plan on Snacks

As of January 9, 2024, guests staying at a Disney resort can once again use the Disney Dining Plan. This handy add-on to your trip, available for an additional fee, essentially allows you to pre-pay for the food you’ll eat while at Walt Disney World, giving your vacation a more “all-inclusive vacation” feel.

Depending on which plan you choose, you’ll be allotted a certain number of Quick Service or Table Service credits for meals each night of your stay, along with a daily snack credit per person.

Whether or not using the Dining Plan is cost-effective for your trip will vary from person to person and depend on each group’s dining habits, but there are snacks that are a better value than others. Generally speaking, snack credits are worth about $6 each, so to maximize your value, you’ll want to choose to use these credits on a snack that costs at least $6, if not more.

How do you know what qualifies as a snack on the Disney Dining Plan?

But what qualifies as a snack? Again, that varies, but typically, this includes items like fountain drinks, a box of popcorn, or ice cream bars, etc. In addition to those traditional snack items, there are often lots of goodies at the Epcot Festivals that qualify as snacks, too.

The easiest way to tell if a snack qualifies on the Disney Dining Plan is to look for the purple DDP sign on the menu:

But, if you ever have a question – ask a Cast Member.

And of course, it’s important to remember that the best valued snacks are the ones you’re actually going to eat and enjoy, so keep that in mind as you plot out your plan of attack.

Important note: With the return of the Disney Dining Plan, we anticipate there is a possibility that some items may be added or removed from snack credit eligibility. We will update our lists below with new information whenever it becomes available.

Also, prices can fluctuate and may vary slightly from the amounts we list below.

Iconic Snacks

Dole Whip

pineapple raspberry swirl dole whip - magic kingdom
  • Price: starts at around $5.79
  • Where to find it: Multiple locations around the Disney parks (except for Hollywood Studios), along with Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Swirls on the Water at Disney Springs
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes
  • Mobile Ordering: You can mobile order Dole Whip at certain locations where it’s available, including Sunshine Tree Terrace at Magic Kingdom.
  • Why it’s popular: After being served at the Disney parks for decades, this fruity soft serve became one of the most beloved snacks among guests — and for good reason. It comes in several different flavors beyond the original pineapple, and is often offered as part of a float or another combination, so it never gets boring.

Popcorn

popcorn cart on main street usa at magic kingdom
  • Price: $5.50
  • Where to find it: All four parks and Disney Springs
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes, a popcorn scoop is 1 snack credit. But if you plan to eat a lot of popcorn over the course of your vacation, rather than using a snack credit each time, you may find it’s more cost effective to purchase a refillable popcorn bucket (about $13 for the basic bucket) for discounted refills for the length of your stay.
  • Mobile Ordering: Not typically available, since popcorn is usually served at walk up carts
  • Why it’s popular: It’s hard to resist the buttery popcorn once you’ve smelled it while walking past a cart! This salty snack is inexpensive, easy to eat while walking from attraction to attraction, and is a crowd pleaser. A bagged version of the popcorn is sold in different gift shops around Disney with more flavor options, and at the Main Street Confectionery, guests can create their own popcorn concoctions with different mix-ins and syrups.

Churro

churro
  • Price: starts at around $5.25
  • Where to find it: All four Disney parks and Disney Springs
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes. This may not be worth the credit, though, since it’s a lower cost snack and isn’t very filling.
  • Mobile Ordering: Not available, since churros are typically sold at walk up carts
  • Why it’s popular: There’s nothing like biting into a crispy churro when it’s hot, so it makes sense that many people can’t imagine their trips without one. Different flavors of churros are available at Sunshine Churros at Disney Springs.

Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bar

  • Price: $6.29
  • Where to find it: All four Disney parks, the Disney resorts, and Disney Springs
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes. With recent price increases, this can be a good use of your snack credit, especially if eating a Mickey-shaped ice cream bar
  • Mobile Ordering: No, these snacks are usually only available at walk-up ice cream carts
  • Why it’s popular: It’s Mickey-shaped ice cream — what’s more iconic than that?

Turkey Leg

Disney Turkey Legs
  • Price: $13.49 and up
  • Where to find it: Magic Kingdom, at Liberty Square Market, Prince Eric’s Village Market, and Sleepy Hollow, and at Epcot, at Fife & Drum Tavern
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes and no — but where it’s offered, it will cost 1 Quick Service credit instead of a snack credit, usually served with a side of chips. This typically isn’t a good value for the credit, unless you’re a big fan of turkey legs.
  • Mobile Ordering: Only available at Sleepy Hollow
  • Why it’s popular: These giant turkey legs are an essential part of the Disney experience (and visiting a theme park) to many — after all, where else are you going to eat a gigantic turkey leg like this?!

Mickey-Shaped Pretzel

  • Price: Around $8.00
  • Where to find it: All 4 theme parks, Disney Springs, and some resorts
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes
  • Mobile Ordering: Not available,
  • Why it’s popular: Not only are Mickey-Shaped pretzels super cute (and perfectly Instagrammable), but they’re also a very filling snack, making them a good value for a snack credit. They’re also served with cheese sauce, which is included in the price.

Funnel Cake

Banana Split Funnel Cake
  • Price: starts at around $10
  • Where to find it: All four theme parks, some resorts including Disney’s Boardwalk Inn Resort
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes (some versions)
  • Mobile Ordering: At some locations, including Sleepy Hollow at Magic Kingdom
  • Why it’s popular: Funnel cakes are a popular theme park and fair snack everywhere, even outside of Disney World, but here, they’re taken to the next level. Along with the classic powdered sugar version of the snack, you can also find funnel cakes served with ice cream, fruit, and other seasonal toppings throughout the year.

Magic Kingdom

Cheeseburger Spring Rolls

spring roll cart
  • Price: $9.50 for two
  • Where to find it: Spring Roll Cart, right outside of the entrance to Adventureland at Magic Kingdom
  • Disney Dining Plan: No — but the price isn’t bad out of pocket and the fact that these are so filling, they can stand in as a light lunch.
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: The Cheeseburger Spring Rolls are a unique snack filled with a blend of ground beef, pickles, and melted cheese. A seasonal flavored spring roll is also available at the cart, and for the same price, you can choose to mix and match flavors however you please.

Warm Cinnamon Roll

cinnamon roll gaston's tavern magic kingdom
  • Price: $6.99
  • Where to find it: Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes, but using a snack credit for this bad boy could easily become a great value if you stop here for breakfast, since it’s massive and very filling.
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: This cinnamon roll is huge and tasty — and could easily be shared between two people if used for a snack.

LeFou’s Brew

  • Price: $6.79
  • Where to find it: Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes, though since it’s just a drink, it’s not the best use of a snack credit — you might do better using the credit on the cinnamon roll and paying out of pocket for a LeFou’s Brew to go with it.
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: This frozen apple slush includes the flavor of toasted marshmallow and topped with All-Natural Passion Fruit-Mango Foam is hit with anyone who has a sweet tooth.

Cheshire Cat Tails

Cheshire Cat Tail
  • Price: $5.99
  • Where to find it: Cheshire Cafe in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes. Strictly speaking to the cost, it’s not a great value for a snack credit, but if you want to grab a quick breakfast without using a meal credit, this is a good choice.
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: This snack is essentially a chocolate croissant topped with icing, so if you’re a fan of pastries, you’re going to love this — especially since it is very photographable.

Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich

fresh fruit waffle with nutella at sleepy hollow refreshments
  • Price: $8.49
  • Where to find it: Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom
  • Disney Dining Plan: No
  • Mobile Ordering: Yes
  • Why it’s popular: Truly, what’s not to love about a waffle slathered in Nutella and topped with fresh fruit? Nothing! This is a fun snack that could also work as a pretty filling breakfast, especially since Magic Kingdom doesn’t offer a lot of Quick Service breakfast options in general.

Epcot

Croque Glace

  • Price: $9.50
  • Where to find it: L’Artisan des Glaces in the France pavilion at Epcot
  • Disney Dining Plan: No
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: This Is probably the fanciest ice cream sandwich you’ll ever eat — a scoop of ice cream pressed between warm brioche. It can get a bit messy, but it’s totally worth it.

School Bread

school bread - kringla bakeri og kafe - Norway epcot
  • Price: $4.79
  • Where to find it: Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe in the Norway pavilion at Epcot
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes, though it’s not a good value since it’s under $6. You may do better selecting a different treat at this bakery to use for a snack credit while paying out of pocket for the School Bread.
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: Disney describes the School Bread as a “Sweet Roll filled with Custard and dipped in Coconut,” but to fully understand the hype, you’ll have to try it yourself. Some enjoy it as a snack, while others think it makes an excellent breakfast pastry.

Caramel Popcorn

Karamell-Kuche
  • Price: $6.99
  • Where to find it: Karamell-Küche in the Germany pavilion at Epcot
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes — and considering the price, this is a great value.
  • Mobile Ordering: Yes
  • Why it’s popular: Fans of caramel corn are going to love this popcorn, which is freshly made at this bakery. It’s a little pricey, but considering the quality is higher than bagged caramel corn that’s typically found at the grocery store, it’s worth it, and has gained many devotees over the years.

Kakigōri

Kakigōri
  • Price: $5.50
  • Where to find it: Kabuki Cafe cart in Japan pavilion at Epcot
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes — it’s a decent sized portion, and can be a really refreshing treat on a hot Disney day.
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: Yes, this is a snow cone… but a truly delicious one. There are multiple flavor options offered — Rainbow, Strawberry, Melon, Cherry, Tangerine and Blue Raspberry — and you can also get it topped with sweet milk for an additional fee. A boozy version of the Kakigōri is also available, which is made with sake (though this version would require you to pay out of pocket).

Seasonal Poutine

Refreshment Port Braised Beef Poutine
  • Price: $7.50 and up
  • Where to find it: The Refreshment Port at Epcot
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes, and the portion could easily be part of a light lunch, especially if you’re planning to snack around the world.
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: The menu is always changing, with fun twists on poutine throughout the year, depending on the season and what festivals are going on at Epcot.

Hollywood Studios

Ronto Wrap
  • Price: $13.29
  • Where to find it: Ronto Roasters in Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios
  • Disney Dining Plan: No
  • Mobile Ordering: Yes
  • Why it’s popular: This Star Wars-themed snack is a fan favorite, and, per Disney, is made with “Roasted Pork, Grilled Pork Sausage, Peppercorn Sauce, and Tangy Slaw wrapped in Pita Bread.” This is a decently filling snack that can get you through ’til the next meal, and be sure to stop by in the morning for the breakfast version of the wrap.

Jack Jack Cookies

NomNomCookie
  • Price: $6.29
  • Where to find it: Neighborhood Bakery at Hollywood Studios
  • Disney Dining Plan: No
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: This Incredibles themed treat is a giant, warm chocolate chip cookie, so there’s pretty much no going wrong here (though all that melted chocolate can get a bit messy for little ones, who love it just as much as adults).

Totchos

plant-based totchos woody's lunch box
  • Price: $10.49
  • Where to find it: Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes — 1 Quick Service credit
  • Mobile Ordering: Yes
  • Why it’s popular: Imagine if nachos were made with tater tots instead of chips, and that’s Totchos. Potato Barrels are topped with beef and bean chili, queso, shredded cheese, tomatoes, corn chips, sour cream, and green onions, and it doesn’t hurt that a plant-based version of the dish is available, too.

Lunch Box Tart

lunch box tart woody's lunch box toy story land
  • Price: $4.79
  • Where to find it: Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes — but not a good value, since the tarts are small and under $6
  • Mobile Ordering: Yes
  • Why it’s popular: Lunch Box Tarts are Disney’s take on Pop Tarts, except much fancier. They’re fun to eat, fun to photograph, and different flavors are often rotated in seasonally.

Carrot Cake Whoopie Pie

  • Price: $5.49
  • Where to find it: Trolley Car Café at Hollywood Studios
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes — and though it’s a bit cheaper than that $6 break even point, these cookies are huge, so well worth the credit.
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: The Carrot Cake Whoopie Pie has been a fan favorite for years, and park goers were thrilled when it finally reappeared on the menu at the Hollywood Studios Starbucks location.

Animal Kingdom

Corn on the Cob

  • Price: $5.29
  • Where to find it: Harambe Fruit Market in Africa at Animal Kingdom
  • Disney Dining Plan: No

  • Disney Dining Plan: No

Mr. Kamal's fries

Beyond the Parks

Gideon’s Cookies

  • Price: $6.00
  • Where to find it: Gideon’s Bakehouse in The Landing at Disney Springs
  • Disney Dining Plan: No
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: These cookies are huge and delicious, making them an immediate hit among guests, even though this Gideon’s location has only been open since 2021. Just be warned that it’s incredibly popular, so you’ll sometimes be asked to join a virtual queue by talking to a Cast Member outside of the store. There is almost always at least some wait here (even when they aren’t using a virtual queue) so it’s a good idea to make Gideon’s your very first stop when arriving at Disney Springs.

Mickey Mousse

  • Price: $9
  • Where to find it: Amorette’s Patisserie in Town Center at Disney Springs
  • Disney Dining Plan: No
  • Mobile Ordering: Yes
  • Why it’s popular: Not only is this Mickey-shaped dome cake adorable, but it’s also delicious. It’s a bit pricey at just under $10, but as a special treat, this definitely does the trick.

  • Where to find it: The Daily Poutine in Town Center at Disney Springs
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes — 1 Quick Service credit
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: Aside from getting poutine at Epcot, you can also grab a bowl at Disney Springs. There are a few variations that serve as mainstays here, including the classic Canadian poutine, along with seasonal varieties as well.

  • Disney Dining Plan: No
  • Mobile Ordering: No
  • Why it’s popular: These Mickey-shaped pastries are covered in sugar, which basically says it all… and that’s without even mentioning the fact that you can also order beignets here that are injected with booze.

Zebra Domes

  • Price: About $5
  • Where to find it: The Mara and Boma at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
  • Disney Dining Plan: Yes, and it is a good value for such a special and beloved snack
  • Mobile Ordering: No — they are available in the grab and go fridges inside The Mara

It’s served on the Boma buffet at dinner, but you can grab them to try at The Mara, too.

Tie-dye Cheesecake

Although it looks like ketchup, the red on top is just part of the tie-dye design – we promise it TASTES better than this pic makes it look.
