If you’re heading to Disney World with your fabulous Disney squad, you’re going to want to share some good eats — and we’re talking ultimate foods! And you KNOW that we at DFB know all about THAT!
Here are twelve ultimate foods to share with your #DisneySquad!
Kitchen Sink — Yacht and Beach Club Resorts
Beaches & Cream‘s Kitchen Sink is the ULTIMATE ultimate food to share with your Disney squad. This massive sink-bowl is packed with scoops of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, cookies and cream, and mint chocolate chip ice cream and then topped with every ice cream topping in the restaurant (and a full can of whipped cream!). Yeah, it’s amazing.
The menu says the Kitchen Sink serves four — but if you’re with your squad of more than four, we’re pretty sure you’ll all feel satisfied after this one.
So rich. So much sugar. So fun. It’s a must. Check out the DFB Guide video about the Kitchen Sink, and then gather your pals.
Hibachi at Teppan Edo — Epcot’s Japan Pavilion
Japan’s Teppan Edo is a super place to get a meal and a show! This hibachi experience brings everyone to the table to watch a chef prepare your meal — with flare! We’re talking onion volcano, people!
The interaction between the chef and the diners is great, and the food is decent! If you and your squad are looking for a high-energy, delicious night out, head to Teppan Edo!
‘Ohana Bread Pudding — Polynesian Village Resort
We talk a lot about ‘Ohana Bread Pudding here at DFB, but that’s only because it’s totally awesome. The caramel sauce poured atop a scoop of vanilla ice cream and cascading over the slightly sweet bread pudding is pretty much indulgence on a plate. And bonus: it comes with the whole ‘Ohana experience! Because ‘Ohana means family, and what better word to describe your Disney squad?
Note! Ohana is currently unavailable but Kona Cafe does serve a limited amount of the bread pudding each day!
Want to see why you and your squad need ‘Ohana Bread Pudding? Watch this DFB Guide video! (Warning: you’re going to be hungry by the time it’s over. Get snacks.)
Punch Bowl — The Edison, Disney Springs
Okay, okay, this next one isn’t technically an eat. It’s a drink! If you’ve got a group of friends who are looking for a night out with some boozy drinks, you might want to head over to The Edison in Disney Springs to try out the Punch Bowl option!
Several of The Edison cocktails can be made in the Punch Bowl for $100, but don’t let that hefty price scare you off. Disney World drinks tend to cost $12 to $18 so when you consider that this one is shareable, it’s actually a pretty fair deal.
Nutella and Fruit Waffle — Sleepy Hollow, Magic Kingdom
If you and your squad are heading to Magic Kingdom, swing by Sleepy Hollow for the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich. That’s the official name, but we think of this one as the Nutella waffle sandwich.
That’s because it slathered in the sweet spread before it’s piled high with strawberries, blueberries, and bananas. This treat is definitely share-able, so grab one (or two), and fuel up with your crew!
Pizza — Via Napoli, Epcot’s Italy Pavilion
If your squad loves a good pizza pie, make an Advance Dining Reservation at Via Napoli in the Italy pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. Here you’ll want to get a few individual pizzas with different toppings — or really go for it, and get the 1/2 meter mezzo metro.
This shockingly big pizza can be customized, or you can choose one or two pizza combos from the menu. Either way, you can feed a small army with this one — and your squad will thank you for it.
Cookies ‘n’ Cream Funnel Cake — Oasis Canteen, Disney’s Hollywood Studios
If a fried treat is your squad’s game, head to Oasis Canteen at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for an epic funnel cake. This is cookies ‘n’ cream, and it’s outrageous. A thick, crispy funnel cake is topped with powdered sugar, pulverized oreos, a swirl of vanilla soft serve, chocolate sauce, and a pair of Oreo Mickey ears. Point of fact: you’ll need your squad to help you eat this because it’s so big.
It also happens to be one of the best monetary snack credit values on the Disney Dining Plan, so if your squad is going all out for DDP, get this! Note on this one: This option is currently unavailable as of April 2021, but we’re keeping an eye out for its return!
Indian Bread Service — Sanaa, Animal Kingdom Lodge
For a squad looking for adventure, head to Sanaa at Animal Kingdom Lodge, and order the Indian Bread Service. (If there are more than a couple of you, order more than one!) Not only can you enjoy freshly-prepared flatbreads (SPICY BUTTER NAAN!), but you’ll also get nine chutneys and dips.
Trying new flavors and combining those sauces is part of the fun, and when you’re sharing this favorite appetizer with your Disney squad, there’s just nothing better.
Tapas — Jaleo, Disney Springs
When Jaleo opened in March of 2019 in Disney Springs, it was pretty clear this is a great spot to bring your Disney squad. Tapas is the name of the game for many of the restaurant’s offerings, and because of that, sharing is caring. 😉
Order up a bunch of delicious small plates (and a plate of paella!), and dig into the Spanish-inspired eats.
Bubble Waffles — AristoCrepes, Disney Springs
Another must in Disney Springs: Bubble Waffles. These fun and loaded treats are indulgent and delicious — plus there are two awesome flavors: salted caramel and strawberry! We recommend getting one (or two!) of each, finding a nice spot by the water, and chilling with your Disney squad.
But they can be a little tough to get your hands on.
Porterhouse for Two — Yachtsmen Steakhouse, Yacht Club Resort
Want to splurge on some stunning steak? Grab your Disney squad and hit Yachtsmen Steakhouse (when it reopens). This restaurant specializes in steaks and those steakhouse sides.
Get the Porterhouse for Two, and then go all in on the side dishes! Even if there’s more than two of you, this steak is share-able. (Plus, you know, more room for pull-apart onion rolls!)
Dim Sum and Sushi — Morimoto Asia, Disney Springs
For an elegant and delicious lunch or dinner, make a reservation at Morimoto Asia. This gorgeous restaurant is helmed by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, and if you’re into dim sum and sushi, your squad’s gotta come here.
Small plates include awesome eats like Kung Pao Chicken Dumplings, various bao, and Pork Egg Rolls. And because these are small plates, you and your squad can get one of each!
The next time you and your Disney squad hit Walt Disney World, enjoy some of these ultimate squad eats. You’ll be well-fed, hyped up on sugar, and ready for all the fun!
