Planning your Disney vacation and want to eat the best snacks? You’re in luck! Today we’re sharing the best Disney snacks at all the parks!
Food at Disney World is a fun experience! Everything is themed to the park you are in and Mickey Mouse ears tend to show up even in your food selections. Because we often choose to use the Disney dining plan, we have the freedom to eat at a variety of restaurants throughout the parks. (The dining plan is currently not available but Disney says it will be returning at a yet to be determined date.)
We also end up with a billion snack credits so we eat a ton of snacks on our trip. The snack options at Disney are seemingly endless with everything from suckers and ice cream bars counting as snacks to more sophisticated options like French fries and pulled pork!
Even when we are not using the Disney Dining Plan we always purchase a few snacks in the parks. This gives us some fun food purchases while still staying on our budget. Sitting down and enjoying a pineapple Dole Whip or fried onion straws also gives our feet a nice break!
If you are anything like us, sometimes having so many options is a bad thing – it is hard to make a decision of which snacks to choose! To help, we have made a round up of the most popular snack options in all of the theme parks.
These snacks are the favorites of thousands of tourists to Disney World! Because the snack options are so abundant at Disney this list should give you a good starting point to help you make some decisions about what to eat!
Please note: It is not uncommon for Disney to change up their snack options. Sometimes certain snacks leave (temporarily or permanently), and sometimes the location of where to get the snacks change. Be sure to check the menus before you go if your heart is set on something specific!
