10 magical treats you need to try when you visit Disney parks

No trip to Disney is complete without delicious treats, and you’ll want to try as many of these as you can while visiting.

Whether you’re going to Disney World or Disneyland, a trip to Disney is always jam-packed with exciting things to see and do. With all of the attractions, character sightings, firework shows, and shops, there’s no way to see everything in one trip. And don’t even get us started on the food choices.

Disney is known for its delicious meal and snack options, and visitors will definitely need snacks to keep them going throughout the day. After all, walking around those parks and waiting on lines can get exhausting, especially during the warmer seasons.

Thankfully, Disney offers plenty of snacks to give visitors the energy boost they need to brave its parks. In fact, there are so many delicious treats at Disney, it can be overwhelming—especially for foodies who want to try them all.

Here are 10 of our favorite snacks to try while you’re at Disney.

Mickey Mouse premium bar

If you don’t buy a Mickey Mouse premium ice cream bar and post it on social media, did you really go to Disneyworld? We think not.

Mickey Premium ice cream bars are available at every Disney park, and they’re pretty much a staple of any vacation to Disneyworld or Disneyland. With their blend of chocolate and vanilla ice cream, they satisfy any sweet tooth craving—and they’ll keep you cool during the warmer seasons!

You can find Mickey Premium bars at multiple locations throughout Disney. Just look for an ice cream shop or cart, and chances are they’ll be selling these.

Dole whip

For such a simple treat, Dole whip has developed quite a following among Disney lovers. This creamy pineapple ice cream is a must-try while you’re at Disney, and it’ll keep you refreshed on the warmer days at the parks. It can also be mixed with different ice cream flavors, as well as a number of delicious toppings.

Dole whip can be found all over both Disney World and Disneyland, but two places you’ll be sure to find it are Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom (Disney World) and The Twisted Ambush at Tropical Hideaway (Disneyland).

Mickey Mouse waffles

Mickey Mouse waffles are a classic Disney treat, though you’ll likely need to visit a sit-down restaurant to enjoy some. They make the perfect breakfast item for Disney lovers looking for some energy before braving a long day at the parks.

Mickey waffles are available in most restaurants that serve breakfast, including the Grand Floridian Cafe and Captain Cook’s.

Macaron ice cream sandwich

What’s a surefire way to create a delicious new dessert? Blend two well-loved desserts together! That’s exactly what Disney did when creating this macaron ice cream sandwich, which visitors can find at L’Artisan des Glaces in Epcot’s France.

Though it’s a bit of a trek to find these, they’re totally worth the extra effort. Visitors can try these sandwiches in chocolate or whatever seasonal flavor L’Artisan des Glaces is currently serving. If you visit around the holidays, you’ll be able to snag a pumpkin spice or peppermint flavor.

Goofy Glacier

If you’re looking for something refreshing that you can drink instead of eat, you might want to give Goofy’s Glaciers a try. These rainbow slushie drinks are every bit as extra as Goofy is, and they’ll add some extra color to your day.

The best place to find Goofy’s Glaciers is at Goofy’s Candy Company in Downtown Disney, where you’ll find a variety of fruity and cleverly named flavors. You can also find them in limited flavors at other locations, including Big Top Treats in Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland.

Mickey Mouse pretzel

Sometimes, you’re just in the mood for a more salty snack. When salt cravings strike, grabbing a Mickey Mouse pretzel is always a solid plan. Mickey pretzels can be found all over the Disney parks, at both stands and eateries.

And while pretzels always make good snacks by themselves, we all know that everything tastes better shaped like Mickey.

Waffle sandwiches

Visitors looking for more savory snacking options can also give Disney’s waffle sandwiches a try. While these waffles aren’t shaped like Mickey, they’re still pretty delicious. And you can put whatever toppings you’d like on them—even chicken and cheese.

Whether you decide to try a savory waffle sandwich or one full of Nutella and fruit, you just can’t go wrong with one of these. You can find them at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.

Star Wars cupcakes

The best thing about Disney owning the Star Wars franchise is that fans can now find Star Wars characters scattered throughout the parks. Even better, you can find your favorite droids and Sith Lords on delicious snacks—including these adorable cupcakes from Backlot Express in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios.

These cupcakes look scrumptious enough without the Star Wars characters on top, but those touches will definitely seal the deal for fans.

Mickey Mouse cookies

We’ve said that everything tastes better when shaped like Mickey Mouse, and these cookies are just more evidence of that. The options are really endless when it comes to trying the treats at Disney. They’re throughout the parks, and there’s no shortage of types of cookies. You can find shortbread cookies at the Jolly Holiday Bakery in Disneyland or dipped Mickey cookies at Main Street Confectionery in Magic Kingdom.

Ghirardelli sundaes

If you’re going to eat dessert, you might as well go all out. You can do just that by grabbing a Ghirardelli sundae from Disney World’s Disney Springs location. These sundaes truly take ice cream to the next level, offering visitors toppings like brownies, cookie bits, butterscotch, and more.

Walking into the Disney Springs Ghirardelli shop will be a dream come true for dessert-lovers. And that’s what Disney’s all about, isn’t it?
