The snacks at Disney World are probably legendary status. With hundreds of sweet and savory picks, you’ll be certain to find a new favorite food wherever you go. It’s impossible to eat every menu item (I’ve tried), but this list is a great mixture of classic treats and new inventive combinations. Although we recommend trying everything you possibly can, here are the 10 must-try snacks at Disney World.

Dole Whip

(Disney)

What: It’s a non-dairy soft serve that comes in pineapple and vanilla flavors. It comes in several varieties including a float and a swirl.

Mickey Waffles
