The Disney Parks — Filled with magic, memories, and must try Disney snacks!
Both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort are, of course, known for the unique attractions, one-of-a-kind entertainment, attention to detail, but one of the things I look forward to most on my next Disney vacation is the food!
From Mickey pretzels to salty popcorn to ice cream, the Disney Parks are filled with plenty of options, guaranteed to satisfy every taste bud. Let’s take a look at some of the must try Disney snacks while you are vacationing in the theme parks.
Mickey Ice Cream Bar
The Mickey Ice Cream Bar is certainly a classic. Whether you have tried this treat in the past or you are a first-timer, you have to get this vanilla ice cream bar coated in milk chocolate (shaped like the one and only, Mickey Mouse), the next time you are in the theme park.
One of my personal favorite snacks — A warm, soft and salty Mickey pretzel is a must have every single trip. Try pairing it with warm cheese and you’ll have the perfect mid-afternoon snack while exploring the theme park.
Whenever I visited the Disney Parks, I probably have about 10 containers of salty popcorn throughout my Disney vacation (It’s just so addicting!) Over at Epcot, Disney guests can try special flavored popcorn including cheddar cheese, buffalo bleu cheese, or sour cream and chive popcorn.
And if you are a popcorn addict, like me, try getting a Disney popcorn souvenir bucket. These give you a discount on refills (and make for a great souvenir to bring back home with you!)
The classic Pineapple Dole Whip is what started it all, (which is also another one of my favorite snacks), but now Disney guests can choose from a wide variety of Dole Whip flavors including orange, raspberry, lemon, mango, and more!
Disney’s jumbo turkey legs are still, to this day, one of the most popular Disney snacks. On your next Disney vacation, be sure to stop and pick one of these up (But be prepared to share. They are gigantic!)
Check out this treat — One of my favorite cinnamon rolls in the theme parks is in Magic Kingdom at Gaston’s Tavern. Be sure to pick one up the next time you’re at Walt Disney World!
And while you’re there, be sure to check out Lefou’s Brew.
There is a wide variety of Disney cupcakes located all throughout the theme parks. From classic chocolate to peanut butter, these sweet treats are a must-try the next time you visit Walt Disney World.

If you are looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, then you have to get your hands on this sweet treat. The classic funnel cake can be topped with your choice of powdered sugar, chocolate syrup, vanilla ice cream and other delicious options!
Disney guests visiting Epcot can also opt for a cookies ‘n cream funnel cake.
Who doesn’t love churros? This delicious sweet treat can be found at various churro carts located all throughout the Disney Parks.
Head on over to Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World and check out Sleepy Hollow. Here, Disney guests can choose between a Nutella Fruit Waffle Sandwich or a Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich.
So the corn dog is a bit more of a meal than a snack, but I had to include it on this list as the corn dog is such a classic.
Disney Dining Plan
There are a few different options for the Disney Dining Plan, which include the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan, the Disney Dining Plan, the Disney Dining Plan Plus, and the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan.
If you are on one of these Disney Dining Plans, you can use a snack credit to pay for one of these delicious Disney snacks while visiting the parks!
