When it comes to delicious snacks Walt Disney World has it all, but not all snacks are created equal. With the help of some Disney fanatics, I’ve rounded up some of the best Disney snacks at Walt Disney World.
Best Disney Snacks: Mickey Mouse Candy Apple
Submitted by Julie from Blonde Hair Blue Skies
I try to get a Mickey candy apple every time I am in Disney World. Caramel and apples are a classic combination, plus they are dipped in chocolate. But the best thing is how they create Mickey’s ears with marshmallows!
This awesome Disney snack comes in so many character designs and holiday themes you can always find a new one to try. I’ve even seen St. Patrick’s Day apples! You can also get more traditional flavors such as peanut-dipped or Oreo-coated.
I’m always impressed when I see the cast members decorating them with intricate designs. They are practically a work of art, and look almost too good to eat (almost)!
You can find the candy apples in multiple places, including:
- Candy Cauldron at Disney Springs
- Main Street Confectionery at the Magic Kingdom
- Big Top Treats at the Magic Kingdom
- Beverly Sunset at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- Karamell-Küche at Epcot.

Disney World Snacks: Mickey Donut Shortbread Cookie
Submitted by Christine from Mouse Travel Matters
My choice for best Disney snacks at WDW is the Frosted Mickey Donut Shortbread Cookie.
There are two kinds, one with pink (vanilla) frosting and another with chocolate. Both include crunchy sprinkles. The frosting resembles the top of a donut, with the middle and ears each taking the shape of a large donut with smaller donut “ears”.
You can find these delicious snacks at a number of places:
- Zuri’s Sweet Shop at Animal Kingdom
- Big Top Souvenir Shop at the Magic Kingdom
- Disney’s Boardwalk.
Of all the snacks available at Walt Disney World, we like this one the best because it can be packed up and saved for later, because you know we aren’t going to finish this in a single sitting.
Cupcakes are too sweet, ice cream is good once per day, but cookies – cookies are good any time of the day. We also like that a single snack credit can feed our family of 4 for snack time. Something fun between popcorn snack time (because that’s a real thing) and an actual meal, it’s not too filling and tastes just like Shortbread cookies you would make at home.
Disney Snacks: Dole Whip

My all-time favorite snack at Walt Disney World is the Dole Whip! You can find this delicious treat at several places around the world including the Animal Kingdom, the Magic Kingdom and at the Polynesian Resort.
This multi-dimensional treat is perfect if you are looking for a boozy delight, a comfort food, or just a traditional family snack. The dole whip float is one of the best ways to enjoy this yummy treat. I love to get it with the raspberry soft swirl for an extra special treat.
If you are wanting an even more delectable option, the upside-down pineapple cake with dole whip on top is a must-have! The dole whip is vegan so perfect for everyone in your family. You can find dole whips at these locations:
- Tamu Tamu at the Animal Kingdom
- Marketplace Snacks in Disney Springs
- Pineapple Lanai at Polynesian Resort
- The Drop Off pool bar at the Art of Animation Resort
- Everything Pop food court at Pop Century
- Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom (This is where you get the OG Dole Whip)
Disney World Snacks: Mickey Pretzel
Submitted by Lissy from Lissy Through the Looking Glass
What is it about Mickey-shaped food that just makes them taste so much BETTER than regular shaped foods?! One of my favorite snacks at Disney parks by far is the Mickey-shaped soft pretzel. They’re one of the cheaper treats at Disney parks, and you can find them in just about every area of the parks at snack stands, so you don’t have to waste time standing in line at a quick-service restaurant.
I prefer just the standard Mickey pretzel with cheese sauce to dip it in – you just can’t beat that classic soft pretzel taste! One cool quirk about the pretzels, since they’re Mickey-shaped, you actually get much more pretzel than an average soft pretzel, since more dough is needed to create the iconic Mickey Mouse shape!
As I said, Mickey pretzels are available at all Disney parks, often at small little stands that also serve soft drinks as well, as opposed to quick-service restaurants. If you’re on the Disney Dining Plan at Walt Disney World, they count as 1 snack credit each.
