15 Iconic Disney Snacks That Are Everyone’s Favorites
When you get hungry at Walt Disney World, you don’t need to sit down and eat a full meal.
Many of the snacks available won’t just fill you up. They’ll make your heart sing.
In all sincerity, Disney sells so many delicious treats that it’s challenging to narrow down the sweets to a small list. But we’ll try.
Here are 15 of the most iconic snacks at Walt Disney World!
1) Blue and Green Milk
Star Wars fans, you can finally turn a fantasy into reality. The thick glasses of milk shown in the movies are available for purchase!
You’ll need to visit The Milk Stand at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Once you reach Batuu, you can order your favorite of Blue or Green Milk. Or both!
I recommend the Green Milk, as the Blue kinda tastes like chunky foam.
Okay, think of churros as the delivery system. When I say churros, I really mean dipping sauces.
On its own, a churro is tasty fried dough. However, when you pair it with a dipping sauce, you unlock Heaven’s Gate and walk inside for a few bites.
At Disney, you’ll never lack for dipping sauces, either. Some of their flavors are insane, and I mean that in the best possible way.
3) Corn Dog Nuggets
You shouldn’t think of all snack options as lighter fare. In fact, some of the ones I’ll list here could easily provide the basis for an entire meal.
To wit, you can grab Corn Dog Nuggets when you’re in the mood for a quick bite. It’s an instant protein pack that you can down in five minutes.
You can also order Corn Dog Nuggets as an entrée, sit at a restaurant table, and nosh while you talk with friends.
You’ll eat better and cheaper than them, too!
4) Dole Whip
I have nothing new to contribute to the legend of the Dole Whip.
This pineapple ice cream concoction has become synonymous with Disney snacks…and for good reason.
The taste will overwhelm our senses and possibly give you an ice cream headache as well.
That happens because Dole Whips are so addictive that your spoon and mouth will react independently of your body.
I love Dole Whips so much that I try to stay at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort as often as possible.
You’ll find an exclusive Dole Whip snack stand there!
5) Fruit and Nutella Waffle Sandwich
I’m in awe of the mad scientist who invented this dish. Someone thought, “What if I combined the healthiest and fattiest food together?”
Then, that crazy soul decided to mash them together in a waffle! It’s like someone wanted to cheat on their diet without admitting it.
“What did you have for breakfast?” “Mainly fruit…”
Speaking of zany concoctions, you’ll find this dish during some of EPCOT’s festivals.
Frushi is precisely what it sounds like, too. A skilled chef carves sushi rice into hollow squares.

Then, this glorious soul adds fruits like cantaloupe, coconuts, pineapple, and strawberries.
Oh, and the toppings include raspberry puree and whipped cream! It’s a decadent dish that will look great on your Insta, too!
7) Giant Turkey Legs
I maintain that these come from some sort of secret government breeding program.
Somewhere in an underground lab, someone tried to invent the ultimate giant turkey super-soldier.
When the creature proved hostile, the scientist killed, cooked, and ate it.
Dear Disney: please make this canon.
Seriously, since childhood, you’ve known that drumsticks equal power at Thanksgiving dinner.
Disney serves them year-round, only supersized enough to live at the top of Jack’s beanstalk.
8) The Grey Stuff
You didn’t expect this one, did you? During the pandemic, Gaston’s Tavern surprised guests with a new menu item.
Yes, The Grey Stuff is available for order as a sweet treat. Until 2020, this dish had remained exclusive to Be Our Guest Restaurant.
For many diners, its existence justified a meal there. So, the addition on the Gaston’s Tavern menu qualifies as a hallmark event for many.
This chocolate cupcake will make you forget about any other cupcake you’ve ever had in your life…or other chocolates, for that matter.
9) Kitchen Sink
Would I describe this dish as a snack or a life’s ambition? I cannot say for sure.
Think of the Kitchen Sink as the best group snack you’ll ever eat.
Guests at Beaches & Cream can order this dessert for $35. You may wonder what snack could justify that price. Well, here’s a list of every ingredient.
The Kitchen Sink includes so much ice cream that you’ll feel like you bought a Dairy Queen.
10) Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich
What’s better than a macaron? The honest answer is not much. It’s like a cookie sandwich!
I’ve always thought of them as upscale Oreos, but L’Artisan des Glaces at the France pavilion has done me one better.
This dessert specialty shop has added ice cream, turning the macaron into the cold dessert of your dreams!
11) Maple Popcorn
The recurring joke about the Canada pavilion is that you can order maple on everything here. They might even serve it on steaks at Le Cellier!
Okay, I don’t think that they do. So, I’m suing if that item suddenly appears on the menu. Intellectual property claim!
Seriously, though. Fans of maple flavors should head straight to the Canada pavilion and, well, try to live there.
So many of the foods highlight this flavor, but none does it better than the Maple Popcorn at the Popcorn Stand.
The salty/sweet combo is so extreme that it’ll take your tastebuds a moment to recalibrate.
Seconds later, your popcorn bucket will be empty. That’s okay, though! You can buy refills!
12) Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bars
Like Dole Whips, Churros, and Giant Turkey Legs, this dish has earned its reputation as synonymous with Disney theme parks.
Occasionally, you’ll find Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bars at your grocery store, which is tremendous.
You’ll feel like you’re at the parks when you eat an ice cream bar. But it still tastes the best when you devour it at a Disney park!
Something I adore about Disney is seeing a little kid’s face covered in chocolate and ice cream.
Parents try to wipe off the dessert, but its presence signals victory for the child.
13) Ronto Wrap
I’m convinced that many of Disney’s weirdest creations exist for the same reason as Reese’s Cups, at least according to those old commercials.
Remember the ones where the people would clumsily ram chocolate into peanut butter and suddenly realize everything’s right with the world?
I don’t know how else to explain that Disney’s culinary team jammed pork, sausage, and slaw together in a pita. Then, they threw peppercorn sauce on top.
I mean, that had to happen by accident, right? Nobody could have planned that.
Whatever the explanation, this wrap has quickly become one of the staples of theme park visits.
You’ll find Ronto Wraps at multiple Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge restaurants now, which is great for you but terrible for the Ronto species on Batuu.
Those things are going extinct because we can’t stop eating them.
14) Troll Horn
Shameful confession: I never call the restaurant by its given name, Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe.
Instead, I say that I want to go to that excellent dessert place at the Norway pavilion. And people know what I mean.
This bakery had developed such a glowing reputation that EPCOT fans freaked out when it didn’t reopen with the park in July of 2020.
Well, the place is back now, and that means you can finally order Troll Horns again!
These kitschy puff pastries look like someone has chopped the horn off a unicorn’s head, but Disney decided that was too dark. So, they’re trolls instead.
Inside the giant triangular pastry, you’ll find Orange Marmalade Cream as the stuffing.
The best way I can describe the experience is this. Imagine that you turn a giant donut into a pinata.
Once kids bust open the pinata, delicious orange cream spills out. Then, everybody eats the pinata AND its filling. And we’re all as happy as we’ve ever been.
15) Werther’s Caramel Popcorn
This snack represents the only way that you can buy at home without having to rely on eBay.
Mickey ice cream bars come and go, but Werther’s Caramel Popcorn is available at Amazon right now for less than twenty bucks.
I still had to include it here since this popcorn has achieved such status among Disney loyalists.
We visit Karamell-Küche at the Germany pavilion, and then we buy so much Werther’s food that the stock price goes up. Okay, maybe that’s just me.
Anyway, this caramel popcorn will make that junk you buy at the mall seem like the cheap imitation that it actually is.
People have been trying to rip off Werther’s for decades now. Their food is just plain better, though.
Bonus selection: Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse
My wife threatened me with divorce or various other unpleasant propositions if I didn’t include this one.
She noticed the oversight immediately and gave me quite the look.
So, please save my marriage by going to Satu’li Canteen and ordering the most colorful snack at Walt Disney World!
