Disney World is known for many things, but to me, it represents the opportunity to indulge and treat myself….with snacks. Disney theme parks go all out when it comes to their delicious sugary treats, and it’s a must to treat yourself to a few (or 10)! I may not be a huge fan of spending my extra moolah on Disney souvenirs, but I always make it part of my budget to splurge on a few treats here and there. Here are my favorite must-have sugary snacks at Walt Disney World!
1. Buttery Popcorn
This popcorn may be the Pop Secret brand, but don’t underestimate the delicious buttery-ness of this popcorn! It is better than movie theatre popcorn, I can assure you. You can grab this treat at most carts and kiosks around the Disney theme parks, and I just love the cute little circus box they pour it into!
2. Mickey Ice-Cream Bar
My ultimate must-have treat at Walt Disney World. It’s at the top of my list every time I take a trip to Disney, and the rich chocolate never disappoints. I like to wait a few minutes to soften the vanilla ice-cream before devouring this beauty, but be sure to snap a picture before it melts – the Mickey ears are just so cute.
3. Norwegian Trifle at Epcot’s World Showcase
For a taste of Scandanavian culture, be sure to make a quick stop at Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase! This treat was a first timer for me! After four days of eating nonstop chocolate and sugar, I was craving something a little healthier. I grabbed this Norwegian Trifle and it was the perfect blend of sweet fruit and cake. I also loved chatting with the lovely ladies from Norway who worked at this bakery. (Note: all the people who work in each country around the World Showcase are from that specific country! How neat is that!)
4. Chocolate Mousse at Les Halles
I am a chocolate mousse connoisseur, and you can bet I have tried the chocolate mousse in every country and city I’ve visited, so I had to try it while at Disney World. This chocolate mouse definitely won points in my book and came in second place, next to the chocolate mousse I had in Ubud, Bali. That is saying a lot. What can you say: the French definitely know how to bake their treats.
Along with the Mickey ice-cream bar, this is my second go-to item whenever I visit Disney. The churros at Disney, as with everything else in the parks, are pure magic, and they blend the perfect amount of outer crispness with the sugary softness on the inside.
6. Mickey Mouse Brownie
Another first time treat for me on this trip! I spotted this Mickey Mouse brownie at the old fashioned candy shop, Confectionery, on Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom, and I’m so glad I spotted this small treat! Be aware: it is 80% pure chocolate with only a hint of chewy brownie on the inside, but that doesn’t make it any less delicious! Make sure to browse this quaint shop and watch how the character-inspired candy apples and Mickey krispie treats are made!
7. Tonga Toast at Kona Cafe
If you can only get one sugary treat on your Walt Disney World trip, make it this goddess. The Polynesian Resort’s Tonga Toast is only available for breakfast at the Kona Cafe, so make time! I had listened to numerous Disney podcasts and read countless blogs, and every single one of them urged listeners to get the Tonga Toast. I arrived to Kona Cafe five minutes before their breakfast menu was discontinued for the rest of the day, but I begged Nina (Disney cast member and my new best friend) to secure me some Tonga Toast after telling her it was on the tippity top of my Disney list. Needless to say, she saved the day. It was well-worth the 40 minute wait, and beyond what I had expected. Expect soft cinnamon toast, with syrup and with a secret strawberry goo that Disney would not give me the recipe to. Grab some eggs and get there early – you will thank me later. 😉
8. Chocolate dipped Marshmallow Wand
Another go-to, I always grab this chocolate covered marshmallow wand at Pooh Corner at Disneyland in Anaheim, but this time, I snagged it at Confectionary on Main Street. Tigger Tails are another favorite of mine (four giant marshmallows on a stick, coated in caramel, and then coated in orange-colored white chocolate) but you can only find them at Pooh Corner. This is a Disney classic, that you should definitely try!
Well, there you have it! My favorite sugary treats at Walt Disney World Resort! What are your favorite Disney treats? Any I must try next time I visit Disney? Comment below! 🙂
