These days, we all have a Disney food bucket list; and here at DFB, we’re always adding to ours with the BEST things that you’ve GOT to try in Disney World and Disneyland!
Check out what’s #OnTheList for us here at DFB!
Dole Whip — This pineapple soft-serve has reached cult status in Disney World and Disneyland. Get yours straight up, or in a float.
Mickey Premium Bar — Vanilla ice cream enrobed in chocolate. Simple, yes, but it looks like Mickey!
Beignets — These puffy, fried dough treats are iconic in Disneyland’s New Orleans Square.
Safari Skewer — Get your veggies! This bacon-wrapped asparagus at Disneyland is not your average theme park food.
Ice Cream Martini — Ice Cream and alcohol? What’s not to love?
Disneyland Churros — Don’t even think about visiting Disneyland and not having at least one churro. They’re practically a food group unto themselves — and that sweet, fried, crunchy goodness is legendary!
Carrot Cake Cookie — A DFB favorite for sure, this twist on the classic carrot cake is definitely a sweet treat that can double as a meal. After all, it’s veggies. Right?
Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich with Warm Peanut Butter — Who knew? Now you do! And so do I! Get this amazing treat at Magic Kingdom’s Plaza Ice Cream Parlor!
Krakatoa Punch — Grab this at Trader Sam’s establishments on both coasts. It’s en fuego!
Lapu Lapu — Rum, rum, and…rum…all served up in a hollowed-out pineapple at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort in Disney World. Get yours at ‘Ohana or Tambu Lounge.
The Grand Marnier Orange Slush in Epcot’s France — Our favorite grown-up slushy indulgence. What’s your favorite?
Lamplight Lounge’s Secret Drink Menu — There’s a whole world OUTSIDE of the Standard Disney Drink Menu — IF you know where to look.
The Kitchen Sink Sundae — Everything…AND the kitchen sink!
Bananas Foster Bread Pudding — I’ll pay for dinner just so I can get this afterword.
The Grey Stuff OR The Grey Stuff Cupcake — This oreo panna cotta mousse is, indeed, delicious! Find as part of the Dessert Trio at Be Our Guest Restaurant or topping The Grey Stuff Cupcake at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom.
Zebra Domes — These amarula cream mousse domes are cult favorites from Animal Kingdom Lodge, but in my experience you either love ’em or you hate ’em. Either way, you’ve gotta try ’em!
Corn Dogs — Classic Disneyland hand-dipped goodness — now found at Disney World, too!
Plaza Inn Fried Chicken — The best fried chicken you’ll ever have!
Mickey Waffles — The shape is true Disney magic, but it’s the flavor that will bring you back time and time again.
Tonga Toast — Cinnamon-sugar coated fried bread filled with bananas? For breakfast? Sign us up.
Restaurants and Lounges #OnTheList
‘Ohana Best Friends Character Breakfast — This table-service character meal at Disney World’s Polynesian Village Resort features all you care to eat goodies that are brought to your table (so you never have to get up and wrangle the kids to go to a buffet) as well as must-have character interaction with Mickey, Pluto, Lilo, and Stitch. Grab those autographs without standing in line, have a great meal, and be ready to start you day! One of my favorite character meals on either coast.
Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto — This bar at Disney World’s Polynesian Village Resort, along with its sister location, Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar in Disneyland, serves up drinks in the most fun atmosphere imaginable. Don’t miss it on your next trip!
