Our Favorite Disney Treats of 2019, and Some of Our Least Favorite...
Updated: May 21, 2019
On my previous blog post, "Our Disney Bucket List-10 Quick Service Snacks Edition" we went through the 10 snacks I was DYING to try during our Disney vacation.
I did get to try quite a few of them, BUT like most everyone there, once you enter into Disney, there's 500 snack places everywhere, and sometimes you forget to try the things you had planned (...or I'm just a forgetful person!)
Here is a list of our ABSOLUTE favorite food items and a few least favorite food items that we tried during our May 2019 trip to Walt Disney World!
Let's start with our favorites....
1. Peter Pan Float (Storybook Treats-Magic Kingdom)
The Peter Pan Float, located at Storybook Treats in Magic Kingdom, is lime soft serve (reminds me of a lime version of a dole whip), over sprite with a chocolate Peter Pan feather in the top. It is priced at $5.99.
This delicious sweet treat was OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. Thomas, Hailee and I all agree, it was one of our favorites. I mean seriously, I could've eaten these everyday if I hadn't discovered them the last day we were there. It was the perfect balance of sweet and tart, and it made a good snack and drink at the same time! What could be better than that?
2. Bacon Macaroni & Cheese All-Beef Hot Dog (Casey's Corner, Magic Kingdom)
The Bacon Macaroni & Cheese All-Beef Hot Dog is located right at the end of Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom, and is priced at $11.49.
Thomas and I both agreed, it was the best tasting hot dog we'd ever eaten, and the fact that it had mac and cheese AND bacon on it, made it even more delicious. Like some of the other bloggers have said, when you try this though, you may want to split it with another person! All 3 of us shared it, and we were STUFFED by the end of it. Still a must try!
3. Frozen Dessert Violet Lemonade (Pineapple Promenade, Flower and Garden Festival, EPCOT)
I wasn't entirely sure what to think of this frozen snack when everyone kept recommending it. I have never been a huge lemonade fan, but I was in EPCOT to try new things, so that's exactly what I did, and thank goodness I did!
This incredible drink...or is it a dessert.... is found in the Pineapple Promenade (right before Canada when entering into the World's Showcase) only during the Flower and Garden Festival, and it is another must have treat! It was a whole lot smaller than I expected, but big enough for Hailee and I to share. To us, it kind of tastes like the best tasting melted grape Popsicle you can find, and not too much like lemonade, but still SO good.
It is priced at $3.50
4. Pineapple Dole Whip (Aloha Isle, Magic Kingdom)
So as many of you know from Instagram, I had never tried a Dole Whip until this trip, and as a non-pineapple flavoring lover, it wasn't something convinced I was going to like, but boy was I wrong!
It's not overly sweet, and the perfect amount of tart! By far THIS is my new favorite Disney treat!
It is priced at $4.49
5. Corn Dog Nuggets (Casey's Corner, Magic Kingdom)
The second time I went back to Casey's Corner (I just HAD to have another one of those mac & cheese hot dogs!), Hailee wanted a corn dog, but instead we found corn dog nuggets!
After she ate a few of them, Thomas and I both tried them and agreed that they were almost as good as the mac and cheese bacon dog! It also comes with fries, which are also great!
This is priced at $8.99
6. Minnie Cake Pop (Pretty much every bakery in Disney)
On our last trip in 2016, I first discovered my love for the Mickey/Minnie cake pop, so of course I just HAD to have one this time. Like the Mickey cake pop, it's dense chocolate cake covered in both milk and white chocolate, dipped in red sprinkles with a white chocolate Minnie bow!
I found this particular Minnie cake pop at Big Top Treats in Big Top Souvenir Store, near the dumbo ride.
These are priced at $4.19
7. Hei Hei Cone (Aloha Isle, Magic Kingdom)
Hailee got this amazing Hei Hei, at the same time Thomas and I got our first dole whip. It's raspberry dole whip, on top of the pineapple dole whip with 2 candied eyes and a a candy strip, all on a blue waffle cone! It was absolutely amazing!
....And I may have ended up eating more than her... ;)
This yummy cone is priced at $5.29, SO worth it.
8. House-Made Crab and Cheese Wantons (China Pavilion, Flower and Garden Festival, EPCOT)
While traveling around from country to country in the World's Showcase, we came across one of my favorite American-Chinese snacks, Crab Wantons!
These definitely didn't disappoint. They were perfectly crisp, and had the perfect creamy filling.
These are priced at $6.00
9. Minnie Chocolate Suckers (The Ganachery, Disney Springs)
So technically this isn't in a park, but it is in Disney Springs!
While walking around after Hailee's Bippity Boppity Botique appointment, we came across a small chocolate store in Disney Springs called "The Ganachery".
The SECOND we walked in, the lady behind the counter treated Hailee as if she was meeting a real princess (Hailee was dressed up as Snow White). She even asked Hailee for her signature in their "Princess Book".
After Hailee had signed it, the lady gave her a free chocolate sucker!
Thomas and I also got our own treats; a Minnie Mouse chocolate lollipop, and Thomas got a couple of Mickey printed chocolate squares. They were perfectly hard on the outside, and very "melty" on the inside. Something you must try if your in the Disney Springs area!
Unfortunately, I can't seem to find the prices on these but it was about $18.00 for Thomas' and I's chocolate.
10. Grilled Street Corn on the Cob (Flower and Garden Festival, EPCOT)
I actually didn't try this particular snack, but Thomas absolutely LOVED it!
11. Breakfast Bowl (Woody's Lunch Box, Hollywood Studios)
I'm not a huge fan of breakfast, but I wish I could eat this every morning!
It's tater-tot's, smothered in sausage gravy, topped with scrambled eggs and green onions.
So tasteful, and filling!
Now onto the snacks we didn't like so much...
1. Melon Shaved Ice (Japan, EPCOT)
I was the only one out of our bunch that tried this snack, located in Japan at Kaki Gori Treats and it was my least favorite snack that I had while on our trip. To me, it didn't have much flavor and even though it was a great value for the size, I definitely won't be getting it again.
2. School Bread (Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe, Norway Pavilion, EPCOT)
This was a strange one for us. None of us really enjoyed it as a whole, but I loved the frosting/filling, Hailee loved the coconut and Thomas liked the bread! Personally, the bread tasted like pumpkin pie without any of the sweet, not something I'd get again.
3. Chicken Bowl (Harambe Market, Animal Kingdom)
This was one of those dishes that all 3 of us tried, and none of us cared for (minus the chicken, it was delicious). None of us cared for the over powering sweet sauce when mixed with the rice.
4. Beef Brisket Poutine (Refreshment Port, EPCOT)
This was a non-sweet treat that I was most looking forward to at EPCOT, and unfortunately I found it fell below the bar. The meat was super soggy (almost like pot roast) which made the fries go soggy super fast. But overall, it just didn't have much taste.
5. Via Napoli Pizza (Italy, EPCOT)
On our full day at EPCOT, we decided to do a quick sit down meal at Via Napoli, located in the Italy Pavilion. First off, I must say the bread and olive oil are AMAZING, but Thomas, Hailee nor I enjoyed the pizza. The sauce was super sweet, and other than that, it was just a bit bland.
Which foods have you tried in the Disney Parks (or Disney Springs) that you love? Which ones were you disappointed in?
Have a magical week!
