Price: $3.75 (1 DDP Snack Credit)

I know you can get these at any park, but there’s just something about being in Animal Kingdom that makes me crave a chocolate-covered frozen banana. It’s perfect for hot days and for satisfying your sweet tooth. Plus, it’s mostly a banana and that’s healthy!

Colossal Cinammon Roll

You can’t go wrong when you choose any of the treats on the menu at Kusafiri, but the Colossal Cinnamon Roll stands out. It’s huge, warm, delicious, and shareable! Oh, and it’s shaped like Mickey!

We’ve also gotten some tasty cupcakes at Kusafiri over the years, and the Elephant Ear is another fan-favorite.

Dole Whip with Dark Rum

The traditional Aloha Isle Dole Whip is taken to a whole new level with the addition of dark rum. This treat had its debut during Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival. It can now be found full time on Tamu Tamu’s new desserts-only menu. There is a dark rum and coconut rum version.

You can also get a non-alcoholic Dole Whip cup for $4.99, or a float for $5.99. Both non-alcoholic options are 1 DDP Snack Credit.

Pongu Lumpia

The Pongu Lumpia is a pineapple cream cheese spring roll that is dusted with sugar. The tangy sweetness of the Pongu Lumpia makes it a great snack or even a breakfast treat. And with a pair for under $5, you can split them with a friend!

Night Blossom

This drink is a feast for the eyes as well as the palette. The Night Blossom is made with layers of Apple and Desert Pear Limeade topped with Passion Fruit Boba Balls.

The basic non-alcoholic Night Blossom in a cup is just one snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan, but you can also opt to pay out-of-pocket for one in a souvenir cup, one with rum, or one with rum AND the souvenir cup.

Mr. Kamal’s Seasoned Fries

It’s possible that we’ve never come across an order of loaded fries that we didn’t enjoy. But At Mr. Kamal’s kiosk in Asia, you can grab some of the more unique fries we’ve come across. These are topped with tzatzki salad and sriacha ketchup!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse

You almost don’t want to eat this because it is so pretty to look at. But the Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse topped with Passion Fruit Curd is a perfect blend of tart and sweet flavors.

Chicken Fried Rice (Side Order)

Choose the side order of Chicken Fried Rice at Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafe if you’re looking for a snack that’s more like a meal or a light lunch. It’s filled with protein and veggies.

The convenient to-go container makes it easy to eat while you walk around the park. An added bonus is that it’s a huge portion, suitable for sharing.

French Fries with Pulled Pork and Cheese

Known for its large portions, the Flame Tree BBQ is one of the best quick service restaurants in all of Walt Disney World. It’s also a good place to grab a snack. The French Fries topped with pulled pork, melted cheese, and Flame Tree’s signature BBQ sauce are almost a meal in and of themselves.

Skip the line and order this snack with the My Disney Experience mobile app.

Haystack
