Walt Disney World is a magical place that stimulates your senses not only with sights and sounds but with smells as well! As soon as you enter the Magic Kingdom the scent of buttery popcorn and sugar-coated churros fills the air. There are so many snack options at the Walt Disney World Resort but not all of them are very filling and some seem to cost an arm and a leg. You’re already spending a good deal of money just to visit the resort, so why pay a ton on snacks? The good news is there are some very filling snacks that won’t break the bank! Check out this list of snacks and where you can find them:
1. Bagel with Cream Cheese at Starring Rolls Cafe
If you don’t want to start your day with a full, heavy breakfast, grab a bagel with cream cheese. It’ll hold you over until lunch and will let you make it to the parks at opening. A great spot to grab this filling snack is at the Starring Rolls Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s right on the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Sunset Boulevard. Watch the morning crowds while you enjoy your bagel, or take it with you on your way to your favorite ride!
2. Pretzel (around the parks)
Mickey Pretzels are a classic filling snack that are available all over the Walt Disney World Resort. Get a plain pretzel with salt or spice things up with the Jalapeno pretzel. Either way, be sure to have it with delicious cheese dip! This is a snack that’s big enough to share and cheap enough to get everyone their own (if you don’t feel like sharing!). Head over to the Germany pavilion in Epcot for the original twisted treat, a soft pretzel sprinkled with salt.
3. Edamame at the Gardens Kiosk
If you’re looking for a healthier snack option, or even vegetarian snacks, check out the kiosks near Flights of Wonder at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. These stands offer snacks like Thai Coconut Curry soup, samosas and savory edamame. All are very affordable and will keep you satisfied until meal time. The edamame can also be found in Epcot at the Kastura Grill in the Japan pavilion.
4. Chicken Fried Rice at Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafe
After your Himalayan trek, head over to the Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafe in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It’s located right next to Yak and Yeti restaurant. There are some tasty and savory snacks here that could easily serve as a meal. One of those is the chicken fried rice which comes in an adorable take-out container. Liven up your rice with your favorite sauces from the condiment counter.
5. Sandwiches and Pastries at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie
Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie is a great place for the entire family to find their perfect snacks! Located in the France pavilion at Epcot, this restaurant has many delicious and inexpensive options! Try the Roule Lard and Fromage (bacon and cheese roll), which combines 2 of the best foods in the world! Bacon and cheese make everything delicious. Or for a sweeter snack, get the chocolate and hazelnut stuffed beignet, topped with powdered sugar. If you’re entering the park from the Boardwalk area at International Gateway in the morning, Les Halles is open and a great place to pick up breakfast!
6. Nutella and Fruit Waffle at Sleepy Hollow
I have heard so many good things about the Nutella and Fruit Waffle! It’s not quite as cheap as the other snacks on this list, but it’s still under $10 and can be shared with the whole family. A fluffy, Belgian waffle slathered in creamy Nutella and topped with sweet strawberries, banana slices, and plump blueberries-need I say more? Pick up this sweet snack at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom‘s Liberty Square.
7. Dole Whip at Aloha Isle
One of the most popular Disney snacks is the refreshing, and affordable, Dole Whip. Pineapple is not the only option-try orange, vanilla or get them swirled. You can even get a Dole Whip float! I’m not a fan of pineapple anything, but give me an orange or vanilla Dole Whip and I’m good to go! You can get the fruity soft-serve at the Magic Kingdom in Adventureland or at Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
8. Carrot Cake Cookie at Writer’s Stop
One of the most unique cookies at Walt Disney World can be found at Writer’s Stop at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The carrot cake cookie is made up of two huge, moist, and spicy cakey cookies filled with sweet cream cheese frosting. This is a great snack to share or to enjoy over a few days and it’s budget friendly too!
9. Beignets at Port Orleans Resort-French Quarter
You’ll have to leave the parks for this snack but it’s so worth it! These delicious fried pastries are sprinkled with powdered sugar and won’t break the bank. You can get 3 for under $4 or 6 for under $5. Beignets are a great snack and can be shared with your family.
