Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re getting down to the serious business of ranking our 10 favorite Disney snacks!
We’ve gathered 10 iconic Disney snacks that you can find all over the parks and resorts and…ranked them!
We are having a great time discovering all the Halloween decor and treats that are popping up in the parks at Walt Disney World – and just in time for the first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party starting this Friday, August 17th!
Right away we were greeted by the Citizens of Main Street USA who were more than happy to share our sweet treats with us. Looks like the Mummy Cake Pop really spooked one of the citizens! [Read more…]

It’s Fall — or it nearly is, anyway. And I don’t know about you, but when the days start to shorten and the air gets a little more crisp, I am all about APPLES. (You thought I was going to say pumpkin, didn’t you.)
The great thing about Apple Snacks and Treats is that they can actually be good for you. Well, better for you, anyway! 😉
Today, I thought I’d feature one of my very favorite Disney Food Blog Crawls, just in time for Fall — the Apple-a-Day Crawl at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. And the cool thing about this one is, despite its name, you can easily complete it in the space of one day!
And if you love the sounds of a food-based scavenger hunt featuring all of your favorite Disney Snacks, be sure to check out our latest updated e-book, the DFB Guide to Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios Snacks 2015 for more creative eats!
Start your apple-filled day at Starring Rolls Cafe.
This little bakery is the home of many of our favorite cupcakes. But they also feature lots of pastries for both breakfast and afternoon snacking.
At Starring Rolls, you can take advantage of the pastry spread and enjoy an Apple Turnover for breakfast. Yep; it’s a little decadent. But isn’t that what vacations are for?
It’s always so fun to check out the great photos that our members post on the Disney Food Blog Photo Extravaganza, our Flickr group. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, head over there! We’ll take a virtual eating trip to Disney over work any day of the week. 🙂
And today, we are all about just a few of the outrageous Caramel Apple options that you have all over the Disney Universe!
Let’s check out some of the most awesome examples of Caramel Apples that you can find all over Disney for this latest look at our Disney Food Pics of the Week Series!

Whether or not you want to build a snowman, no doubt you’ll enjoy sinking your teeth into a monster-size Olaf Caramel Apple, one of the many Frozen foods we’ve seen this past year in the parks. His little Carrot Nose might just be my favorite part.

But you also can’t go wrong with a classic, like the Minnie Mouse Caramel Apple. There is just something captivating about rows and rows of these beautiful and perfect Minnies! Underneath that layer of Rich Chocolate, you’ll find [Read more…]
We’re going for an absolutely classic confection today, so get your sweet tooth ready to bite into a Mickey Caramel Apple at Magic Kingdom’s Big Top Treats!
Of course, Caramel Apples at Disney World don’t just come dressed up as Mickey… and they aren’t only available at Big Top Treats, either. Magic Kingdom’s apple spots also include the Main Street Confectionery. And you can find them at other sweet stops like Sweet Spells at Hollywood Studios or Goofy’s Candy Co. in Downtown Disney.
But nothin’ says “Caramel Apple” quite like living life under the Big Top, so that’s where we’re grabbing our apple today! While you just gotta love the classic Mickey Apple, part of the fun of getting any Caramel Apple at Disney World is seeing all the choices up for grabs. Options available vary based on the time of year or nearest holiday. Most recently, Mickey Apples could be found participating in the Wearing o’ the Green for St. Patrick’s Day.
The Halloween Caramel Apples are particularly noteworthy every year.
Apples may also be tied to a current Disney film release, or even a previous one. Take, for example, the recent Cinderella Coach Apple celebrating the live-action film release.
Another case in point: the ongoing existence of the Olaf Candy Apple for those who just can’t… ahem… let. it. go.
So, selecting one is pretty rad. What’s the other fun part? Watching the apples come to “fruition” (see what I did there?) before your eyes. You can almost always find Cast Members creating them, and see the apples in their various stages. They all start as green Granny Smiths.
After receiving their marshmallow ears and being dipped in caramel and chocolate, the Mickey Apples await [Read more…]
In keeping with their Gourmet Apple Series, the candy makers at the resort have dreamed up a brand new, ice cream-inspired confection — the Banana Split Gourmet Caramel Apple!
But how do you get a caramel apple to taste like banana split? Disney magic, of course! 😉
Seriously, though — the Mammoth Apples are first dipped in Caramel. After that, they’re coated with [Read more…]
I’ve been a HUGE fan of the Walt Disney World caramel apples for many years.
My obsession grew to a new level when, on a recent trip to Disneyland, I saw that the West coast Disney snack artists have turned this formerly simple treat into a true art form.
Not only are the Disney caramel apples delicious, they are also beautiful, creative, and just plain fun.
But all of that begs a practical question. How do they get so many sticks into so many apples? I mean seriously, have you ever tried to shove a pop stick into an apple?
It’s hard, and messy, and after doing three or four of them, you’re ready to stop and just pour the caramel through a funnel into your mouth, bypassing the apple altogether. (Don’t try that at home folks. :-))
Well, as I was perusing the Disneyland treat offerings, I happened upon a caramel apple prep area and, mystery solved, I learned how they get the sticks into the apples. A handy-dandy gadget comes to the rescue… [Read more…]
On my epic eating adventure with Heather in Disneyland a few weeks ago, we decided to sample two caramel apples that caught our eyes.
Heather had noticed the brand new “Spicy Peanut” caramel apple on her ventures through the parks, and I had always wondered what that adorable “Hunny Pot” caramel apple (that you can only find at Pooh Corner in Critter Country) was like on the inside.
Sadly, we found out the hard way that [Read more…]
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!
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!
