We’ve really been feeling the magic lately at Disney’s Pop Century Resort! The resort has been cooking up some truly magical treats, and we are loving it.
Whether you’re commemorating a birthday, an anniversary, or simply having a magical day at the Most Magical Place on Earth, there’s a treat at Disney’s Pop Century Resort that’ll make any day one worth celebrating!
But, prepare yourself, because this is a treat that’s so good, everyone in your group might just want one for themselves!
OK, so while this isn’t technically a “Disney-made” snack (I’ve even found it in my local grocery store recently), many of us have our first experience with Pocky in Mitsukoshi Department Store in Epcot’s Japan pavilion.

Let’s face it: sometimes it’s just nice to bring a little bit of Disney home with you to help you get over those post-Disney blues! And if you have a handful of Disney Dining Plan snack credits left over at the end of your Disney World trip or you’ve got friends and family you’d like to surprise with a treat, Disney foods make some terrific souvenirs!
Here are my top five favorite snacks to bring home from the parks!
Caramel Corn from Epcot’s Karamell Küche
