I’m honored to say that I got the chance to tape another WDWToday show yesterday (You can listen to it over on WDWToday.com)! The show is about healthy eating in Walt Disney World, but somehow we ended up talking about Funnel Cakes — and I quickly realized I’ve never mentioned Funnel Cakes here on the blog.
What’s a theme park food blog without a Funnel Cake post?!
Forgive me for the oversight, and let me appeal to you with a few photos.
As you can see, funnel cakes are basically a bunch of sweet dough pushed through a funnel and fried into a funny shape in a whole bunch of oil. You can have them plain, covered in sugar (granulated or powdered — it’s up to you), doused in chocolate, or topped with fruit (talk about healthy!!).
If you’re wondering where to get them, well, funnel cakes are apparently synonymous with America (?), and so the most well-known funnel cake stands in WDW are located at the American Pavilion in Epcot…
And in Liberty Square’s Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom…
Sorry about the giant soup sign, but that’s very good soup if you happen to be in a chicken and wild rice sort of mood.
Here’s the full list of Disney spots that sell funnel cakes:
Funnel Cakes stand in Epcot’s American pavilion, Sleepy Hollow Refreshments in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom, Funnel Cakes stand near Festival of the Lion King show in Animal Kingdom, Oasis Canteen at Hollywood Studios, Funnel Cake kiosk at the Boardwalk Resort, Disney California Adventure, Cafe Renee at Downtown Disney Anaheim, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. (have others? let us know!)

Now, if you can’t wait until your next trip to a theme park or the state fair to have your very own funnel cake, here’s the gift that keeps on giving: Funnel Cake Starter Kit. Happy Friday!
