If you’re thinking about going to Walt Disney World, you’ve likely been told about Dole Whips and turkey legs. Disney offers so many tasty options that it can be hard to decide where to start. I did the hard work for you and found 10 must-try foods at Walt Disney World.
Cronut | Refreshment Port | Epcot
This croissant and donut hybrid is available in Epcot’s Refreshment Port. It’s light, fluffy, and comes sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. You can also get it with ice cream, but make sure to get your own! You’re not going to want to share.
Chicken Fried Rice| Yak & Yeti Restaurant | Animal Kingdom
Walking around the parks can leave you pretty hungry. If you’re in Animal Kingdom, stop by Yak & Yeti restaurant and get the chicken fried rice in the cute little yellow container. It’s got the protein you need to keep going.
The Grey Stuff | Be Our Guest | Magic Kingdom
Lumiere recommends The Grey Stuff and so does everyone who orders it at Be Our Guest in Magic Kingdom. The best way to describe The Grey Stuff? Some say it tastes a lot like cookies and cream frosting. Try it yourself! It’s delicious
Sand Pail Sundae| Happy Landings Ice Cream | Typhoon Lagoon
This sand pail is filled with vanilla and chocolate soft serve, cookies, waffle cone pieces, sauces, whipped cream, sprinkles, and cherries. You can tackle this ice cream by yourself or with friends. Once you reach the bottom, you get to keep the pail and shovel!
Beignets| Port Orleans Resort French Quarter
Beignets are a New Orleans staple. It’s no wonder that the Port Orleans Resort offers this dessert to anyone stopping by. Dusted with powdered sugar, these tasty pillows are perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up!
Tonga Toast| Kona Cafe | Disney’s Polynesian Resort
A good breakfast is important at Disney World and Disney’s Polynesian Resort’s got you covered. This giant toast is made from sourdough bread, loaded with bananas, fried and dipped in cinnamon sugar.
D-Luxe Burgers| D-Luxe | Disney Springs
D-Luxe is Disney’s most notable burger joint. You can order your burger with everything from bacon to fried green tomatoes. There are also ground chicken burger available for those who’d rather not have beef. D-Luxe also offers fries, gelato shakes, floats, and boozy shakes.
Fish and Chips | Rose and Crown or Yorkshire County Fish Shop | Epcot
While you’re visiting the United Kingdom in World Showcase, you’ve got to get Fish and Chips. Fish and Chips includes fried fish on a bed of fries. Rose and Crown Pub is one of the best places to get this British favorite. You can also pop over to Yorkshire County Fish Shop if you’d rather skip the pub feel and enjoy outdoor seating.
Carrot Cake Cookie | Sweet Spells | Hollywood Studios
If you like whoopie pies, then you’ll love the Carrot Cake Cookie at Hollywood Studios. This dessert is made of two soft carrot cake cookies without the nuts. Between the cookies is a tasty cream cheese frosting. It’s an icon worthy of it’s own Hollywood star.
Waffle Fries | Golden Oak Outpost | Magic Kingdom
Golden Oak Outpost offers Tex-Mex, BLT, Brown Gravy and Cheese, and Barbecue Pork Waffle Fries. Yes, waffle fries. Choose your flavor combination and the Outpost will fix up your basket of fries. Get your fork ready cause some of these fries are messy.
