These days, you can find a deep fried version of pretty much any food imaginable – and I don’t know about you, but I love a good deep fried snack! Disney is no stranger to deep fried food, and they have a ton of delicious items on their menus around the Parks that will fulfill that desire for something fried. So without further adieu, here are my picks for the top five fried Disney foods:
The “Doh Bar” At Cooke’s Of Dublin – This tiny restaurant is so unassuming that you might not even notice it when you walk by! It’s located next to Raglan Road in Downtown Disney and it’s definitely worth trying out. There’s fish and chips, beef and lamb pie, salads and more on the menu – but the star here is the battered and fried candy bar – it’s a baby ruth type bar that once fried ends up crunchy on the outside and melty on the inside. It’s a rich snack – you might want to share it with a friend (or not – no judgement). And if you aren’t into candy bars, then maybe a deep fried cheeseburger would be just the thing for you. That’s right – they even serve up a battered and fried burger!
Corn dog nuggets at Casey’s Corner – Dining at Casey’s is pretty much a necessity when you are spending a day in the – grabbing a hot dog and then watching the afternoon parade is a tradition for a lot of families, and there’s a good reason why this place and its menu has stood the test of time. A meal of hot dogs, fries, and a soda is a winner even for picky eaters – and over the years they have tried adding different items to the menu, like the hot dogs topped with chili and cheese or BBQ pulled pork, and the corn dug nuggets are a deep fried win for sure! Mini hot dogs covered in a thick cornbread coating served piping hot with your choice of dipping sauces from the toppings bar (many – including myself, love the “plastic” nacho cheese with these!). Whether you have them as a meal or a snack, they are sure to please those of all ages
Funnel Cakes atAmerican Adventure – This stand focuses strictly on this deep fried treat – and you can get it a la mode, or with apples, or chocolate sauce, or with the traditional powdered sugar. They even do a pumpkin version during the fall season! This is the quintessential deep fried treat – big enough to share, served up hot and crispy on the outside and warm and soft inside. I personally prefer to keep it classic with the powdered sugar, but season flavors and topping options give the menu a nice variety and a chance to try something different!
Fried Shrimp Platter at Columbia Harbour House – This Magic Kingdom spot always gets rave reviews for serving up unique and vegetarian menu items.The battered shrimp is served with coleslaw and fries (or broccoli or apple slices if you don’t like fries – I personally prefer to keep with the fried theme and get the French fries). This is a great place to escape the rain or heat, as they have a large dining area, and the upstairs tables by the window are the perfect place to people watch! They also have grilled salmon and a lobster roll on the menu too – and don’t forget to finish off your meal with a seasonal cobbler!
Fish and Chips at Yorkshire County Fish Shop – The crispy batter on the fish and large portion of chips (aka fries for us Americans!) make for a delicious meal (or snack to share!). You can get a beer to enjoy with your fish and chips while you people watch by the lagoon. It’s a traditionally prepared meal that packs a lot of flavor – I highly recommend it!
Disney is always changing up their food offerings, but they also know when to keep a good thing around. These fried snacks have stood the test of time, largely because people love to indulge in delicious treats while on vacation.
