The 15 Best Snacks in the Magic Kingdom

No Walt Disney World vacation is complete without some magical Disney food! We definitely recommend that you factor some food money into your budget. Even if you aren’t planning on making any dining reservations, factor in in some cash each day for snacks in the Disney parks!

Many people choose classic food snacks – funnel cake, turkey leg, Mickey bars or a Mickey pretzel. Did you know that there are so many more options in the Disney parks?

The Magic Kingdom has a ton of snack options that go beyond the simple food choices! While things like water, Coke, a scoop of popcorn, and a piece of fresh fruit are all considered snacks, there are more creative and delicious options out there.

Keep in mind that it is not uncommon for a menu item to leave the Disney parks for a time and then come back. Disney will also move certain menu items from one location to another, so be sure to check the most current menu options before you go! Let’s jump in to some of our favorite snacks!

15 Best Magic Kingdom Snacks

Let’s take a look at the best snacks at Magic Kingdom!

1. Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich (Fruit and Nutella Waffle Sandwich) Sleepy Hollow Inn, Liberty Square

Fruit and Nutella Waffle

This waffle filled with fruit and nutella is available as a snack item all day long! This is an incredibly popular food choice in the Magic Kingdom and is considered one of the top choices.

At times this treat is available only in the morning, so if your heart is set on this be sure to check the menu before heading to the park.

2. Dole Whip Float Aloha Isle, Adventureland 

Disney dole whip

If this is your first time on a Disney vacation, you MUST get a Dole Whip! Dole Whips are an iconic, classic, Disney soft serve treat you can get throughout the Disney Parks. If you have never had a Dole Whip you are missing out!

They come in a variety of flavors (such as lime dole whip), but pineapple is the best and by far the most popular and Dave’s personal favorite! We have an entire post dedicated to this tasty snack here! The pineapple float is $6.99.

3. Pineapple Upside Down Cake Aloha Isle, Adventureland

We’re sure you’ve had a Pineapple Upside Down Cake at some point in your life but you’ve never had one like a Disney World version! This delicious pineapple cake has a citrus swirl of Dole Whip on top!

You can choose the flavor of Dole Whip (either pineapple or vanilla — we’ve heard pineapple is the way to go!) making this snack both customizable and refreshingly delicious. This is a great option especially if you’re a Dole Whip fan like Dave! The Pineapple upside down cake is $6.99.

4. I Lava you Dole Whip Sunshine Tree Terrace

Inspired by the Pixar short “Lava” comes this Dole Whip float! This is a glass filled with red Fanta soda, Red Passion fruit syrup and orange Dole Whip – topped with pop rocks!

We’ve heard the mix of all the flavors is amazing so even if you’re not a fan of one of the flavors such as Orange Fanta, it’s still worth trying! This version of a Dole Whip costs $6.99.

If you’re vegan this is a great option for you since it’s all naturally vegan! This is a fun treat that sometimes temporarily disappears from the menu, so be sure to grab this if it is available during your vacation.

Sunshine Tree Terrace is home of The Orange Bird – a part of Disney history that is making a comeback!

5. Chocolate Mickey Waffles Sleepy Hollow, Liberty Square

Looking for that perfect Instagram shot? Nothing screams “I’m at Disney World” more than a photo of the iconic Chocolate Mickey Waffles from Sleepy Hollow.

These chocolate waffles are in the shape of Mickey’s head! This is one of everyone’s favorite Disney snacks and often shows up on social media. The waffle will cost you $6.49.

You can get Mickey Waffles all over Disney World but Sleepy Hollow is the best spot for them! While we recommend getting the classic Chocolate Mickey Waffles, you could also try one of their other types of waffles! There’s everything from a fresh fruit waffle sandwich to sweet and spicy chicken waffle sandwich.

6. Walt’s Chili Cheese Fries Golden Oak Outpost, Frontierland

If you are in the mood for more savory food items you can’t go wrong with a bowl of fries! These waffle fries are covered in a ground beef chili and a white cheese sauce. If you have a picky eater in your group, you can ask for the toppings on the side! Walt’s chili cheese fries are $6.49.

If you are looking for something more substantial, Golden Oak Outpost serves Pecos Pico Tenders. These are loaded chicken strips with sour cream, cheddar and pico. These are $10.99.

The white queso is the same cheese sauce that is served at Pecos Bill, where you can get corn dog nuggets covered in queso! Pecos Bill is one of our top quick service restaurants – read more about it here!

7. The Plaza Sundae Plaza Ice Cream parlor

If you’re looking for a sweet treat and ice cream sundaes are your jam, you need to check out the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. The classic Plaza Sundae includes cold, creamy ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, and of course, a cherry on top!

This is served in a waffle bowl and costs $8.29. Be sure to keep an eye out for the popular donut ice cream sundae at this location, as well as seasonal options.

8. Cheshire Cat Tail Cheshire Café, Fantasyland

The Cheshire Cat Tail is a warm, delicious pastry filled with cream and chocolate chips and drizzled with pink and purple frosting! The pastry is flakey and the frosting is sweet and of course, there’s delicious chocolate inside.

The chocolate layer isn’t huge so if you’re hoping for a massively chocolatey treat, this isn’t it. However, this could also be a great option to pair with your morning cup of coffee!

Such a fun tribute to the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland! This snack is a decent size so feel free to share it with others in your group. The Cheshire Cat Tail is $5.79.

9. Springrolls Egg Roll Wagon, Adventureland

The spring roll wagon in Adventureland is gaining in popularity! If you are in the mood for an egg roll style snack, order the Cheeseburger Spring rolls – they are the fan favorite!

The flavors at the egg roll wagon change often, but all the flavors are delicious. The crust is thin and crispy and the flavors are perfect! The spring rolls cost about $7.50.

10. Churros Various Locations in the Magic Kingdom

If you love churros be sure to check out the churros throughout the Magic Kingdom! You can generally find them at Pecos Bill, Frontierland Churro Cart, Cool Ship, Lunching Pad, and the Storybook Circus Snack Carts. 

There can be a variety of churro options throughout the Magic Kingdom. Some locations will have special dipping sauces, sometimes there are special flavors for special events, and at times you can find a churro ice cream sandwich! A basic churro will run you about $6.39.

11. Warm Giant Rolls Gaston’s Tavern, New Fantasyland

Of course, this is a warm cinnamon roll – but be warned – it is roughly the size of a barge! You can ask for extra frosting on the side and you can get it with no extra charge.

Gaston’s Tavern is worth checking out for the amazing theme, so head here right after the rope drop for a delicious breakfast while the rest of your crew is getting in line for Space Mountain! This warm treat is $6.79.

The famed Colossal Cinnamon Roll (Main Street Bakery) is also a delicious and popular cinnamon roll option – this one is in the shape of Mickey’s head and is also sharable.

12. Creamy Bacon Macaroni and Cheese Tater Tots Friar’s Nook, Fantasyland

Creamy Bacon Macaroni and Cheese Tater Tots

If you are in the mood for something less sweet, be sure to check out the Mac n Cheese Bacon tots at Friar’s Nook! These tater tots are on top of a bed of macaroni and cheese and topped with crumbled bacon. This is considered an entree, but we think it would be great for sharing as a savory/salty snack.

This is an excellent choice if you are looking for something to eat to hold you over until your dinner reservation. At $11.49 It’s definitely one of the more higher priced items on our list, but viewing it as a shareable entree makes it worth it.

13. Customizable Popcon Mix, Kernel Kitchen, Main Street Confectionery

This is a fantastic choice if you are a popcorn fan! You can create your very own popcorn mix at the Kernel Kitchen at Main Street Confectionary. Select from four popcorn flavors, add a chocolate drizzle, and 2-3 candy mix ins! The create your own popcorn starts at $12.99.

14. LeFou’s Brew Gaston’s Tavern, Fantasyland

This is a slushy style drink made of frozen apple juice and a hint of toasted marshmallow. It is topped with a passion fruit mango foam making this a great drink to have on a hot Florida day!

LeFou’s Brew costs $6.29. You can get this drink in a souvenir stein for $12.99.

Heigh Ho Sundae Disney

Chocolate lovers, this one is for you! This sundae will hit the spot if you are in the mood for chocolate and ice cream. The Heigh-Ho Sundae is chocolate ice cream topped with chocolate rocks, graham cracker pieces, hot fudge, and whipped cream!
