Dining in Disney World can get pricey pretty fast, which is why we love sharing tips and tricks on ways to save a few bucks on your next vacation!
Today, we’re going to share fifteen snacks across Disney World that come in at UNDER $10! The best part is that many of these snacks are large enough to split with a friend, stretching your money even further. Some of these snacks can totally act as a substitute for a meal, so keep that in mind when you’re looking for something to eat in the parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. (You might be eating ice cream as that “meal” but it’s Disney World — it counts, right?!)
Dole Whip Float – Aloha Isle
Why order a plain old cup of Dole Whip (which we still love, BTW) when you can elevate that iconic frozen dessert to a float?! Dole Whip Floats can be found in Magic Kingdom at Aloha Isle and Sunshine Tree Terrace.
Your more basic Floats like Pineapple or Raspberry are going to come in at $5.99, while specialty Dole Whip Floats like our beloved Kakamora Float are $6.99. For the price bump of specialty floats you do typically get extra goodies — like a Kakamora cake pop!

Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich – Sleepy Hollow Refreshments
If you’re looking for a massive snack you can easily split with a friend, try the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich from Sleepy Hollow Refreshments in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom. This giant waffle comes served with Strawberries, Bananas, Blueberries, and a Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread (AKA Nutella).
For $8.29, this is a pretty decent value when you consider how large it is! Between the massive slathering of chocolate and all that fruit, this is MEGA sharable!
Adventureland Spring Rolls – Adventureland Spring Roll Cart
One of our all-time favorite Magic Kingdom snacks has got to be the Adventureland Spring Rolls!
These savory snacks come in at $9.50 for two, and there are a variety of flavors to choose from, including Cheeseburger Spring Rolls and Pepperoni Pizza Spring Rolls. Flavors can rotate — we recently tried a Reuben flavored spring roll here — so be sure to see what’s offered on your visit!
Cinnamon Roll – Gaston’s Tavern
While you can find cinnamon rolls at Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom, we suggest you keep walking down Main Street and head right into Fantasyland for this next snack under $10. There, you’ll find the massive warm Cinnamon Roll from Gaston’s Tavern.
This ooey-gooey treat is $6.49, and it’s a decent portion size to share (it FILLS a standard-sized plate!) with a friend for breakfast! Be sure to order extra frosting!
Carrot Cake Cookie – The Trolley Car Cafe
Let’s hop over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where you’ll find the Carrot Cake Cookie at Trolley Car Cafe. We’ve loved the Carrot Cake Cookie since wayyy back in the day when Writer’s Stop was open at Hollywood Studios!
This serving of cream cheese frosting sandwiched between two delicious cake-like carrot cake cookies comes in at $3.99! For the price and the amount of frosting goodness served here, this is a killer deal.
Totchos – Woody’s Lunch Box
Let’s stick in Hollywood Studios for this next snack under $10 — this time, we’re heading to Toy Story Land, where you’ll find none other than Totchos at Woody’s Lunch Box! What are Totchos, you ask? As the name implies, it’s a tasty combination of Tater Tots and Nachos.
Basically sub out tortilla chips for crispy baked tots. Drown them in chili, cheese, and other yummy nacho goodies and you have hearty mini-meal for $8.99.
Pongu Lumpia – Pongu Pongu
One of our favorite lands in Disney’s Animal Kingdom when it comes to food is Pandora – The World of Avatar. There, stop by Pongu Pongu for a variety of snacks, including the Pongu Lumpia. The Pongu Lumpia is a simple Pineapple Cream Cheese Spring Roll, and fans sure do love it!
Well, not all fans. This is actually a pretty divisive snack — some love the sweet creamy combo, others not so much. See for yourself! The Pongu Lumpia also has the distinction of being the best deal on this list — it’s only $3.29 for two!
Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Pulled Pork – Eight Spoons Cafe
Our final snack coming in at under $10 we wanted to share with you today is the Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Pulled Pork at Eight Spoons Cafe in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This dish reminds us a lot of Flame Tree BBQ‘s version, only this comes topped with coleslaw, pickles, and barbecue sauce.
This dish strikes the perfect balance of flavor and texture, and at $6.79, it’s a solid price for a snack that could totally count as your lunch for the day!
Everglazed Donuts – Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew
Ready to be visually WOWED by this next snack? Over at Disney Springs, Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew has become our new go-to breakfast spot with their dazzling specialty donuts. In addition to their tasty classic donuts, they also serve a variety of out-of-this-world signature donuts, like the Bacon Donut, the St. Patrick’s Day Donut, and the Key Lime Pie Donut (there really is a donut there for everything).
If you’re curious to see what donuts are being served on your next Disney World vacation, Everglazed’s classic donuts are $4.50 each, and the specialty “fancy” donuts are $5.50 each. Yes, that’s VERY pricey for just a donut, but these aren’t your average donuts. They’re basically full-on desserts, topped with frostings, candies, and more!
Not to be outdone, Gideon’s Bakehouse also opened up shop in Disney Springs around the same time as Everglazed. Instead of donuts, however, the name of the game at Gideon’s are their cookies. With classic flavors as well as a rotating menu that changes every month, there’s almost always something new and different to try at Gideon’s!
Just a few examples of these massive cookies we’ve tried recently include the Lemon Poppyseed Cookie, The Rocky Road Cookie, and the Peanut Butter Espresso Cookie, all for $6 each. Be sure to arrive early at Disney Springs to get a good spot in line! Like the donuts above, we get it — $6 for just a cookie? But these things are half a pound EACH. You could eat one by yourself but it’s tough — we recommend enlisting a friend for help!
Poutine – The Daily Poutine
Oh, how we LOVE our Disney World Poutine. The two easiest ways to score some Poutine are either going to be at Refreshment Port in EPCOT, or The Daily Poutine in Disney Springs (no theme park ticket or reservation required!). It’s delicious no matter where you go, but for today, we’re giving a shout out to The Daily Poutine.
Poutine at The Daily Poutine range in price from $9.49 -$9.99, depending on how elaborate you want to go! Their menu often features a seasonal dish, so be sure to check back frequently to see what’s new!
Bubble Waffles – AristoCrepes
We’ve tried a variety of Bubble Waffles over the years, including a Sweet Potato Bubble Waffle and a Peppermint Bubble Waffle. It’s basically a big waffle full of goodies, much like the Sleepy Hollow waffle sammie, but the combos are more unique. If you’re curious, head over to AristoCrepes and grab a serving for $8.99.
Brioche Ice Cream Sandwich – L’Artisan des Glaces
While we’re totally into the newest snack crazes at Disney World like Everglazed and Gideon’s, this next snack for under $10 is a Disney World classic! The France Pavilion at EPCOT is home to L’Artisan des Glaces, one of our favorite spots to grab ice cream! But why get a plain scoop of ice cream when you can get your ice cream sandwiched between brioche bread?
They’ll let you pick a flavor of ice cream, pick a sauce to drizzle over it, and then sandwich it in a hot press, sealing the ice cream inside the doughy sweet warm bread. You can order their Brioche Ice Cream Sandwich with your choice of ice cream for $7.04.
School Bread – Kringla Bakeri og Kafe
Another classic Disney World snack, School Bread is for all of you coconut fans out there! This pastry can be found at Kringla Bakeri og Kafe in the Norway Pavilion at EPCOT. This iconic dessert is a Sweet Roll filled with a thick, creamy vanilla cream and dipped in Coconut. Over recent years, we’ve seen some Disney characters make appearances on top, like Olaf!
At $4.49, this is a great pastry to enjoy in the morning with a hot cup of coffee (or really any time of the day is good for School Bread!).
Peanut Butter Pie – Contempo Cafe – Contemporary Resort
One of our favorite snacks you can grab at a Disney World Resort hotel is the Peanut Butter Pie from Contempo Cafe at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. This DFB favorite is a Vanilla Tart Shell filled with Custard and Peanut Butter filling, drizzled with Chocolate Ganache and topped with Crispy Chocolate Pearls. Even more fun — this treat often gets seasonal glow-ups as well!
Yes, it really is that good, and at $4.79, it’s affordable, too!
Hopefully this list helps you save a few bucks on your next Disney World vacation! The parks and resorts are filled with delicious treats, and it can be tempting to buy every single one that looks appetizing — but that adds up really fast! See which snacks offer more bang for your buck, or which ones are large enough to share with some friends! That way, you can stretch your dollar out further (which means you can buy even MORE snacks — that’s how it works, right?).
