OK, so snacks aren’t technically a meal, you would be surprised how much snacks contribute to a memorable vacation and when you choose a Disney dining package, you will get snack options. For more information on the different dining plans available, visit the Walt Disney World website. My Dreams of Disney has also written a piece comparing Tables in Wonderland with the Disney Dining Plan, check that out also!
My daughter wouldn’t forgive if I didn’t first talk about our favorite recently discovered snack at the Magic Kingdom; the strawberry shortcake sundae served at Mrs. Potts Cupboard in Fantasyland. Imagine a small sponge cake (like the type sold in the grocery store as shortcake shells) topped with strawberry sauce, vanilla soft serve and whipped cream. This snack was so good, on a recent trip we headed back to the Magic Kingdom every afternoon to get a sundae.
Also at the Magic Kingdom, there are pickles for sale in Liberty Square (at the fruit stand) , Dole Whips in Adventureland and turkey legs for a wagon in Frontierland. Over at Epcot, one of my favorite evening activities is to get pastry in the French pavilion or a bag of popcorn, find a seat facing the lagoon in World Showcase and stay there to enjoy my snack while waiting for Illuminations (which always draws a crowd, so I like to get a spot early). All four parks offer Mickey Mouse ice cream bars dipped in chocolate (very popular with many people) as well as Mickey Mouse ice cream sandwiches (a better version of the typical ice cream sandwich in the shape of Mickey’s silhouette with cookies and cream ice cream rather than the normal vanilla). Don’t forget your snack credits when you head over to Downtown Disney as their is so many options available, you may have trouble deciding what you want.
Each resort also has a variety of snacks. My favorite (pictured above) is the tie dye cheesecake at Pop Century. It may look like a regular cheesecake with colors swirled in but what you can’t see from the picture is that instead of a standard graham crust, the crust is a brownie. It’s like getting two desserts in one (bonus!). What’s your favorite snack when you are at Disney World? I am planning my next trip and am trying to think of some new snack places to try!
Tie dye cheesecake has a red velvet cake bottom, not a brownie bottom. It’s my favorite snack to take home and freeze!
