Better-For-You Snack Options in Epcot

Looking for a quick stop at Epcot with better-for-you options? That’s what you’ll find at this brightly-colored kiosk just outside The Land Pavilion in Future World (home of Soarin’, Living with the Land, and – of course – Garden Grill and Sunshine Seasons).

Better-for-you treats (healthy stuff!) can be located at a few spots throughout the parks – including places like Anaheim Produce in Hollywood Studios, Prince Eric’s Village Market in Magic Kingdom, and Harambe Fruit Market in Animal Kingdom. These stands offer a lot in the way of grab-and-go fruits and veggies, hummus, bags of Craisins brand Trail Mix, and sometimes items like Fruit and Cheese assortments (as is the case with this stand in Epcot).

Of course, this stand has been here for some time, and still serves up its classic offerings: Frozen Beverages in Blue Raspberry or Raspberry Lemonade and some good ol’ Mickey Pretzels.

The Fruit and Cheese Plates differ a bit. You can get Cheddar and Swiss cubes, but little ones (and some big kids, too!) may prefer the String Cheese option.

I like that the hummus here isn’t the pre-packaged variety you’ll primarily find at the other spots. It more closely resembles the fresh hummus at Mr. Kamal’s in Animal Kingdom (though it’s worth noting you’ll need to grab your to-be-dipped items separately, like the Garlic and Parmesan Pita Chips available here, or the Vegetable Plate).

Thanks to Sunshine Seasons, The Land Pavilion is not short on heathy treats. But if you’re on the hunt for a snack that provides nutritional value along with taste – but don’t feel like joining the masses on the escalators on their way to Soarin’ – it’s good to know that spots like this exist.

    Cheese sauce??? What kind of cheese sauce? Not plastic cheese sauce? Surprised the Hummus doesn’t come with veggies or bread or something. Having to buy the Hummus and the Veggie bowls separate make it kinda pricey.

  2. Megan says

    Completely agree with Hannah on the price of the hummus and separate dipping items. Who want to buy plain hummus with nothing to dip in it?? Adding in an extra purchase of chips/veggies gets you up to $6-7 for just a small snack. So not worth it.

  3. says

    Hannah — The cheese sauce is the standard sauce that comes in a little plastic container that’s always been available with pretzels. Sometimes it’s a brand name packaged cheese product. It’s not the same plastic cheese you used to find at the parks’ counter service spots, but it’s a good substitute. :-)

  4. Jay says

    Hi AJ! Is the cheese sauce included now with the purchase of a pretzel or no? Thank you!

    We lot that cart, Raspberry slush, YUM! Cant even pass it before hitting figment!

  6. Melanie says

    Came to the comments to complain about the hummus. Glad to see I’m not the only one! Question: does Disney think people eat it with a spoon?

    Live to eat, don’t eat to live….

    Won’t be finding me here, may run into Michelle Obama!

    I loved the pineapple spears at Harambe Fruit Market that we had a few weeks ago. They were sweet and juicy and a wonderful breakfast. We needed a knife and fork to eat them to keep from getting all the juice on our hands. We’d go there again.

    It would be nice if they had those at all these locations.

    Get the Mickey pretzel to dip in the hummus. We did that in June and the guy at the cart was amazed, as if no one had done that before?! Delicious and we were able to share between the two of us.
