You’ll need to do some resort hopping in order to find the 10 Best Snacks at Walt Disney World Resorts. Are you up for the challenge?
Walt Disney World Snack Series
We’ve put together lists of the best snacks for each of the Disney theme parks and Disney Springs, so be sure to check those out:
As Disney Vacation Club members and long time Disney guests, we’ve had the opportunity to stay at almost every Walt Disney World Resort hotel (yeah, we’re looking at you Grand Floridian). During every stay, we always find that one snack or treat that we absolutely love.
As part of our touring strategy, we like to schedule in some off days. These are our days to sleep in late, enjoy a leisurely breakfast, visit Disney Springs, or do some Resort-hopping. And we must confess that there have been times that we’ve planned our off day around getting one of these Walt Disney World Resort snacks!
Snacks at Walt Disney World Resorts
Zebra Domes~ Animal Kingdom Lodge
What the heck is a Zebra Dome? They are a wildly popular sweet snack that can be found at The Mara’s grab and go section or at the Boma buffet. Zebra Domes are small, almost bite-size treats. They are made of a layer of white cake, a dome of Kahlua, chocolate and espresso flavored mousse, topped with a white chocolate ganache, and drizzled in a zebra-stripe pattern with dark chocolate. They are perfect if you have a sweet tooth and a love of coffee and chocolate.
Dole Whips ~ Polynesian Village Resort
While you can find Dole Whips in a few of the parks, there’s nothing like enjoying one out on the lanai, the Pineapple Lanai that is. At Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort’s Pineapple Lanai, you can get a variety of different Dole Whips including a Dole Whip Float and Dole Whip with a rum floater. A new addition to the menu is the Te Fiti Cone, lime soft served garnished with an orchid.
Tie Dye Cheesecake ~ Pop Century Resort
The Everything Pop food court is an awesome place to get a quick bite. But the main reason most people visit is to get their hands on their popular Tie Dye Cheesecake. Found in their grab and go section, the Tie Dye Cheesecake may look scary at first with its super bright colors, but believe me, it’s delicious. The cheesecake is creamy and full of flavor. I fully admit I had one for breakfast once. It’s that good.
Mickey Beignets ~ Port Orleans French Quarter
At one time, Mickey-shaped Beignets were only found at Disneyland. Thankfully, these golden fried goodies are now at Walt Disney World. At Sassagoula Float Works and Food Factory at Port Orleans French Quarter, you can get 3 powder sugar dusted beignets with the option of adding on a trio of dipping sauces.
Ample Hills Creamery Flight ~Disney’s BoardWalk
Have you ever had a moment when you couldn’t decide what kind of ice cream you wanted? At Ample Hills Creamery at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort you can choose up to 6 different flavors in their ice cream flight. This is the perfect shareable snack for families wanting to save a few bucks on ice cream.
Poutine ~ All Star Movies
Ok, we’re going to let you in on a little secret. There’s a secret menu to be found at All Star Movie’s World Premiere Food Court. To access this menu head to the Roxy counter and ask for the secret menu. While we won’t reveal the entire menu, one of the items has made our list. The Poutine with Cheese Curds and Gravy is an awesome snack and the portion is huge.
Campfire Cupcake ~ Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge holds a special place in our hearts. It’s where we celebrated our 10th anniversary. The Roaring Fork was our go to place to get a quick meal during that trip. Though the menu has gone through some changes since that stay, their selection of grab and go pastries and desserts has definitely been upgraded. One worth mentioning is the Campfire Cupcake. The Campfire Cupcake is a chocolate cupcake topped with candy rocks and buttercream fire (you could get the brownie version of this treat at Geyser Point).
No Way Jose ~ Disney’s Beach Club
While some may flock to Beaches and Cream Soda Shop at Disney’s Beach Club for the kitchen sink, I prefer the No Way Jose so much more. Not only can I eat this one all by myself, as a chocolate and peanut butter fan it’s right up my alley. The large portion of chocolate and vanilla ice cream, topped with peanut butter sauce and hot fudge, covered in whipped cream, and topped with peanut butter and chocolate chips and a cherry is a great option for two people to share, or for one person to keep to themselves.
Contempo Cafe Cupcakes ~Disney’s Contemporary
When friends ask me where to go for the best cupcakes in Walt Disney World, I always direct them to Contempo Cafe at Disney’s Contemporary. Their ever changing variety of cupcakes are some of the best we’ve had. They also include seasonal cupcakes in their offerings. When we stayed there, I had a pink lemonade cupcake. They currently have a monorail cookies and cream cupcake that’s worth checking out.
S’Mores ~ Various Locations
A great way to end a day of playing in the parks is to gather around the campfire to make s’mores. At all of the deluxe and moderate resorts plus The Campsite at Fort Wilderness, you can make complimentary s’mores nightly. You don’t even have to be staying at the resort to participate in all the fun. Also, if you stick around after the campfire, you can watch an outdoor screening of a Disney movie.
So those are our choices for the 10 Best Snacks at Walt Disney World Resorts. Did your favorite make the list? If not, let us know what we missed in the comments.
