While we miss the rides and shows at Disney World, we’ve especially been missing all the FOOD.
Even though we don’t know when the parks will reopen since they’re closed indefinitely, we do know exactly which snacks we’re making a beeline for. And, you might want to wear your stretchy pants the next time you’re in Disney World because you’re going to want all of these!
Just make sure to tag along with a couple of your friends and family members because some of these snacks are actually MASSIVE.
Mac and Cheese at Eight Spoon Cafe
Honestly, if we could have mac and cheese all day, errryyyday, we totally would. And, Eight Spoon Cafe has some of the BEST mac and cheese options in Disney World since it combines savory with cheese for a snack that’s filling enough to be a meal. While you’re wandering around Animal Kingdom, you can stop by to get the Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese for $6.79.
They also have Shrimp Mac and Cheese (which comes with a hint of sweet chili sauce) for $6.99. Although you could share, it’s just too good not to keep for yourself. 😉
Pulled Pork Fries at Flame Tree Barbecue
Still craving something savory?? Well, Animal Kingdom also has the seriously tasty Pulled Pork Fries topped with LOTS of good ol’ plastic cheese and smoky pork. Once you’ve had these loaded fries for $6.99, you’re basically going to put them on a pedestal compared to any other side dish in the parks.
We’re not kidding you when we say that this thing is MASSIVE. Although there are other kitchen sinks around Disney World, this is the sundae that reigns supreme time and time again. You will DEFINITELY need an ice cream eatin’ crew to tackle this bowl that comes in Original, Neopolitan, or Chocolate Lovers’ for $35.
Brb, just daydreaming about when we can go into another food coma with all those brownies, pound cake slices, Oreos, candy bars, and so, so, SO much more.
There are plenty of great options in the parks if you’re looking for a sweet and flaky cinnamon roll (just look at the version at Gaston’s Tavern). But, the Colossal Cinnamon Roll is a fan-favorite that’s just as delicious as it is HUGE.
Bubble Waffles at AristoCrêpes
While you’re walking through Disney Springs, you might have spotted the little AristoCrêpes stand in the corner. Buuut, you might have realized it’s REALLY hard to visit since it’s almost never open. AristoCrêpes is only open beginning at 4 PM on weekdays and noon on the weekends (so, you’ve gotta go at the right time to get these treats).
When it is open, though, we love their crunchy and sweet bubble waffles! The crispy waffles have ice cream, whipped cream, and a few other toppings depending on whether you get the Strawberry Bubble Waffle…
…or Salted Caramel Bubble Waffle. Whichever one you choose, it is sooo worth the calories. They’re $8.99 per bubble waffle (plus you can also get in a souvenir trophy to show you completed the Bubble Waffle Challenge).
Funnel Cake at Epic Eats
Indy might hate snakes, but we’re sure he would LOVE these funnel cakes! Right next to the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular in Hollywood Studios, you can find Epic Eats (well, epic funnel cakes) that can make any day in the parks better. If you’re in the mood for something chocolatey, you can try the Cookies and Cream Funnel Cake…
…or you can have the fruit-filled version with Strawberry Topping and Vanilla Soft Serve instead! Each funnel cake costs $8.49, which is a small price for a big portion to share with your friends and family!
Now, this is a secret that we just can’t help but share with you!! If you’ve ever been to ‘Ohana at the Polynesian Resort, you’ll know that they have SO many great options on the menu. We discovered that the ‘Ohana Bread Pudding is a secret menu item at Tambu Lounge (and thank goodness for that).
Although the bread pudding is great on its own, the banana and caramel sauce MAKES this dessert. So, be sure to pour on as much as possible!! Oh, and while you’re at Tambu Lounge, you can also get ‘OHANA NOODLES with all that wonderful teriyaki flavor to balance out the sweetness from the bread pudding.
Anything at Les Halles
Would this even be a snack list if we didn’t include anything from Les Halles?? This bakery in Epcot’s France Pavilion is host to an entire case-full of AH-MAZING sandwiches, pastries, and more. And, we’re being honest when we say that no matter what you get, you can’t go wrong with grabbing a snack at this place. Some of our own favorites include the Napoleon, which is a puff pastry layered with cream for $4.75…
…or the Creme de Brie for $6.75. It’s a bread bowl FILLED with warm cheese, you guys!! How can you go wrong with that?!
Just around the corner from Les Halles, you can also stop by L’Artisan des Glaces for the ice cream-filled treat of your dreams. Although you can get a normal cone with one scoop (or two) of their 16 flavors of ice cream, the Croque Glacé is the way to go if you’re stopping by this parlor.
The pressed brioche ice cream sandwich comes with your choice of ice cream and chocolate or raspberry sauce for $7.04. And, boy, is it GOOD!! The fluffy bread is nice and warm, but it doesn’t melt the ice cream inside (major brownie points from us).
Once you’ve tried the Colossal Pretzel in Pandora, you might never want to go back to Mickey Pretzel again! 😉 Although there’s a similar version in the Germany Pavilion, Pongu Pongu’s pretzel almost melts in your mouth. And, that beer cheese dip is some of the BEST we’ve ever had in the parks (so it’s a perfect pair).
While the Colossal Pretzel is $10.49, you can easily share it with somebody else or make it your lunch!!
Whenever we’re snacking in the parks, we are big fans of discovering new ways to take your treats to the next level. And, even though the $16.27 price tag may seem a bit daunting, the Mickey Ear Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich Hack is worth it. It can also be a great way to use us some of those last few Dining Plan snack credits!
After you’ve set off on a little scavenger hunt around Magic Kingdom, you can dig into the sandwich layered with two GIANT Mickey Ear Cookies, your choice of ice cream flavors, and a peanut butter sauce drizzle. ‘Nuff said, friends.
