Snacks at Walt Disney World are as much of a “can’t miss” element of your vacation as Space Mountain, Mickey Mouse, or Cinderella Castle. Today, our Dream Designers bring you a few of their favorite snack items.
MICHELLE MCCOY – DOLE WHIPS
My favorite snack at Disney is the Dole Whip Float it’s very refreshing on a hot day and takes you to Hawaii with each bite. The Dole Whip Float is served with pineapple soft serve and pineapple juice. You can pick up your own Dole Whip Float at Aloha Isle at the Magic Kingdom, Captain Cooke’s at the Polynesian Resort and the Tiki juice Bar at Disneyland. The Enchanted Tiki Room is the perfect place to enjoy your Dole Whip Float!
ANDREA MAYO – ICE CREAM COOKIE SANDWICH
I love the Home Made Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich. The cookies are freshly baked and the ice cream is hand-dipped (in generous portions). I usually order this snack at the Main Street Bakery at the Magic Kingdom so I get to enjoy the view of Cinderella Castle while I enjoy my delicious snack!
Also available in the Magic Kingdom at Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square, at the Fountainview Cafe in Epcot’s Future World, Hollywood Scoops in Hollywood Studios, and Dino-Bite Snacks in Animal Kingdom’s Dinoland USA.
DAN EDWARDS – FUNNEL CAKE
One of my family’s favorite snacks at Disney World is a Funnel Cake. No Disney trip is complete without visiting Storybook Treats in the shadows of Cinderella’s Castle to enjoy this treat. One bite of this classic concoction will transport you back home to remind you of your childhood days, then suddenly you awaken to realize you’ve been at home at Magic Kingdom all along.
STACEY COX – BELGIAN WAFFLE (FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL)
My favorite that is always available at Food and Wine and Flower and Garden is the Belgian Waffle with Blueberry or Chocolate Topping. Made fresh while you wait, nothing like it available on property and it is so affordable. It is also a great snack credit!

LILLIANA GARCIA – NIGHT BLOSSOM
The newest snacks found at Pongu Pongu in Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom are definitely my new go-tos!
The Night Blossum satisfies the sweet tooth all while cooling you down in the summer heat. The burst of the fruity boba balls on top give it just the right kick. Pair it with the yummy Pongo Lumpia which has the perfect ooey-gooey center to warm you up just enough to not get a brain freeze from the Night Blossum. (We got these several times!)
CRYSTAL CROMWELL – CUPCAKES
A favorite snack in the parks or at the resorts are the delicious cupcakes. From the Master’s Cupcake at Be Our Guest featuring the “grey stuff” (and by the way…it is delicious!) to the clouds of icing on the Olaf cupcake featured at Landscape of Flavors at the Art of Animation Resort, there is a cupcake to fit every taste bud! My favorite (okay my favorites because you can’t have just one favorite when it comes to cupcakes) are the chocolate and peanut butter Darth Vader cupcake at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the lemon cupcake featured at Be Our Guest restaurant in Magic Kingdom.
GINA JOHNSON – MICKEY BARS
No visit to Walt Disney World is complete without at least ONE Mickey Bar. It’s the perfect way to cool off in between our favorite rides.
