Let’s face it, sometimes it’s just nice to bring a little bit of Disney home with you to help you get over that post-Disney depression! And I know that lots of folks end up with plenty of Disney Dining Plan snack credits left over at the end of a Disney World trip. Or maybe you have friends and family you’d like to bring a treat home for.
Here are my top five favorite snacks to bring home from the parks!
Caramel Corn from Epcot’s Karamell Küche
This delicious snack is downright heavenly. Ever since Karamell Küche opened in the Fall of 2010, it’s been a must-stop location for me every time I’m in Epcot — even if my only reason for being there is to smell the gorgeous smells coming from those candy kitchens!
Read all about how the caramel corn is made in this post! A small bag is $2.95, or a snack credit. A large bag is $5.95.
You can find it at all of the candy counters in Walt Disney World and Disneyland, and it’s pretty amazing! The candy cast members make dozens of fudge flavors right on the premises, so it’s 100% fresh for you! The best part? You can purchase six pieces of fudge and get a discount!

Fudge costs $3.95 a piece, or a snack credit.
Mickey Rice Krispie Treat
These classic snacks always top the “best” lists for travelers to Disney parks. Relatively low-fat and very high flavor, you just can’t go wrong with a Mickey-shaped Rice Krispie Treat. Find these yummy snacks dipped in chocolate or plain, and in all different sizes!
These usually cost between $3.50 and $4.00 for small treats, depending on chocolate dipping (large versions like the one pictured first are higher priced). You can also purchase the small treats for a snack credit.
Disney parks corner the market on caramel apples! Creating gorgeous and innovative treats piled high with toppings, you’re bound to find one that you can’t pass up. Nuts, chocolate, candy, cookie crumbs, candy bars, and more have been known to top these goodies. Don’t forget to ask the cast member to cut it up for you if you’d like to eat it that day. Of course, if you’re purchasing it to bring home, leaving it whole will make it last longer.
Some of the more decorated apples will cost you upwards of $9 or more. You can find them in most candy shops on Disney World and Disneyland property. Usually these are not available for a snack credit — gotta pay out of pocket.
Make-Your-Own Treat From Goofy’s Candy Company
If you want the ultimate take-home snack, head to Goofy’s Candy Company in Disney World’s Downtown Disney. Browse through the offerings and choose from pretzel rods, Mickey Rice Krispie Treats, Caramel Apples, Giant Oreo Cookies, and more as your “base snack.” From there, decorate to your heart’s content! Choose a chocolate coating, a topping, and a drizzle flavor; then add more for an extra cost. On my recent visit, I asked that a Mickey Rice Krispie Treat be dipped in white chocolate, coated in Oreo cookie crumbs, and drizzled with milk chocolate! These are boxed for you to take home!
These treats range from around $5-10 depending on the base snack and toppings you choose. Unfortunately, you can’t use a snack credit for these.
