6 Favorite Walt Disney World Snacks

When a snack attack happens to you while you are in Walt Disney World there are numerous delicious snack offerings in just about all the resorts and all the parks to choose from.

With so many tasty delights to choose from I thought it best to limit myself to my absolutely could not tour without it, top six.

My Top 6 Snacks in Walt Disney World:

Dole Whip ~ Disney Snack Favorites

Dole Whip - This soft serve delight is at the top of my favorite list and a snack I've written about often. You can read my posts here and here. It's one snack I’ve never tasted outside of the parks which makes even more special for me. They have a healthy dose of vitamin C, they're fat free, cholesterol free, lactose free and only 80 calories for a 1/2 cup serving. Not a lot of calories for a dessert. Walking around the park would burn a Dole Whip off pretty quickly.  

Dole Whips can be found in The Magic Kingdom’s Aloha Isle, or Captain Cook’s at the Polynesian Resort. Captain Cook’s offers a self serve Dole Whip in pineapple or vanilla. At the Aloha Isle, you can get the famous pineapple flavor or vanilla or orange flavors. They’re served straight up in a cup or as a float. I prefer the cup whereas the rest of my family enjoys floats. Except Paul, who dislikes Dole Whips. Hard for me to believe but that's a whole other post!

The American Dream - Layers of frozen strawberry, vanilla ice-cream and frozen blue raspberry heaven. This frozen concoction of ice cream goodness can be found appropriately, at the kiosk in front The American Adventure in Epcot’s World Showcase. On a hot day this is sure to cause brain freeze if enjoyed too quickly, so take it over to lake and enjoy a gentle breeze in the shade. $3.99 or 1 DDP snack credit.

Carrot Cake Cookie Carrot Cake Cookie – This is my favorite treat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and one I’ve written about glowingly here. You can find it at either the Writer’s Stop or Sweet Spells. The Carrot Cake Cookie is perfect with a Writer’s Stop fresh brewed cup of coffee. 

Zebra Domes – These little tasty sponge cakes filled with Kahlua Liqueur and espresso coffee, dipped in milk chocolate have become a huge favorite with Disney fans and for good reason. I can’t visit Boma or Mara without tasting a few. This is one snack I might consider worth making a special trip to Animal Kingdom Lodge for.

Zebra Domes can be found as a dessert item at Boma, or a snack item at Mara in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. 

Black & White Ice Cream Soda - This classic soda fountain favorite from the 40’s can be gotten at Seashore Sweets on the Boardwalk in front of Disney’s Boardwalk Inn Resort or at Beaches & Cream at the Beach Club resort. It’s a delicious combination of chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream. Seashore Sweets serves hand dipped Edy’s Ice Cream in single, double and ice cream sodas. Seashore Sweets also specialize in old fashioned candies, salt water taffy, fudge and other “Confections served with Affection.”

Mickey's Ice Cream Sandwich - I love both the Mickey's Ice Cream Sandwich and the Mickey's Ice Cream Bar but the sandwich came out ahead as I think it's a little easier to eat in the Florida heat. I'm always racing to eat the bar before it melts and drips. The sandwich can be savored and enjoyed while watching a parade or just hanging out by the Swan boat landing. I usually eat the ears first. How do you eat yours?

There you have it, my top 6 Disney favorite snacks. I could go on all day about Disney snacks but my tummy is grumbly now. 

Time for a little snackeral...while I dream of my next snack adventure in Disney.What’s your favorite absolutely can’t tour without it snack?

  1. Those all look yummy and I'm ashamed to say I haven't tried any of them! I'll definitely have to when we go this summer! My favorite snack at Disney has always been a pretzel and now Magic Kingdom serves Mickey pretzels! LOVE!

    Looks like Magical Blogorail Orange really loves their Dole Whips! Yum! Thanks for sharing! Rosanne @ The Disney Point

  3. Oh yea! Dole Whips are always my #1 pick! Thanks for stopping by, Rosanne:)

  4. What a great way to wind up our snack posts this month, Deb!  Man, looks like I have a few more items to add to my must-try list and our van will be carrying a bit more weight on the way home.  LOL

    I love that drink from the American Pavilion!  I've never seen it before!

  6. Great list, Deb!  We are huge fans of the Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich, though the kids always take a while to decide between the sandwich and the premium bar!  Even better, Grampa is the official ice cream purchaser the entire trip! :-)  I cannot wait to try the Carrot Cake cookie.  We tried last trip, but they were sold out!  Another reason to plan our next trip to Walt Disney World. :-)

  7. Thanks Heidi! I hope you burn up all those snack calories walking around in the parks before you get back in the van, lol. 

  8. Thanks Beth! That must have been disappointing! They sell the Carrot Cake Cookie at Sweet Spells in DHS, if Writer's Stop is sold out. Oh, I got so hungry writing this post! Good thing I can only get these snacks in #Disney!!

  9. I've never had that drink from the American Pavilion. I think I need to add that to my growing list of snacks! :)
