Whether you like sweet, savory, or frozen, you are sure to find something on this list of best treats at Walt Disney World that you will want to try on your next trip to the parks.
When I knew that I was headed to Walt Disney World, I quickly started a WDW food list in the notes section of my phone. Anytime I saw something on Instagram that had anything to do with Disney food, I stopped scrolling and started reading. My list of WDW food was growing everyday, and I was totally looking forward to my family trip to the parks. I told my kids and my husband that we would be trying a little bit of everything at the parks while we were there. Basically I told my kids that they couldn’t be picky when it came to food this trip. 🙂 I knew they would love the food, if they just gave it a try.
These can’t miss treats are all around or under $10. Most of these can be shared too. Which is what my family and I did. Sharing made it possible to check off all those things on my must eat Disney World food list.

Best Treats at Magic Kingdom
The best thing I ate my entire trip was this fruit waffle from Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square. They have a variety of delicious food for around $10 like the popular hand dipped corndog, funnel cake and other waffle options, but this fruit waffle with nutella was my favorite thing there. My kids especially loved this one. We may have even eaten at Sleepy Hollow more than once. We could’ve used a fork and knife to eat this, but I used the fold method and we ate it taco style. Make sure to have some wet wipes ready for when you’re done. We had nutella everywhere. YUM!
A few weeks before our trip, the Friar’s Nook came out with some new menu items. When I heard they had a deep fried twinkie, I had to try it. I grew up eating twinkies and love them. I don’t eat them very often, but I do indulge every know and then. I especially like to eat them with a side of Pepsi. 🙂 We were big fans of the deep fried twinkie with caramel sauce. The Friar’s Nook is in Fantasy Land across from the entrance of Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train.
Try the Grey Stuff it’s delicious, don’t believe me, ask the kids! The Master’s cupcake from Be Our Guest Restaurant was good. Also another one that needed a wet wipe to clean up our hands since we didn’t use a fork and knife to eat it. The chocolate cupcake underneath was super moist and rich. The grey stuff mousse was really creamy and delicious. This is available during breakfast and lunch. There is a different variety they offer in the evenings.
The Cat Tail from the Cheshire Cafe’ is a great Walt Disney World treat to share. It’s a delicate pastry twist with mini chocolate chips and drizzled with colorful frosting. It was too much for me to eat by myself. It’s not super sweet, but if you like chocolate, you will more than likely enjoy this one.
Gaston’s Tavern has some really fun snack options. You can order a cinnamon roll that is the size of your head. I’m sure it is delicious, but I’m not a huge fan of cinnamon rolls. GASP! I know. It’s shocking. So I didn’t get one this time. I do love macarons and I thoroughly enjoyed this macaron trio. They were pistachio, raspberry and lemon. I wasn’t sure I’d like the pistachio, but I really liked them all.
Best Treats at Epcot
Who knows how long the rose gold cupcakes will be around, but I sure hope for a long time. There are so many varieties and can be found in different places around Walt Disney World. This is the Rose Gold Madness cupcake and it’s found at Sunshine Season’s inside “the Land” area at Epcot. Each rose gold cupcake is a different flavor. This one is a vanilla cake with a hazelnut swirl. Again, this is one of those treats that needs to be shared. However, we devoured it in about 2 minutes.
You can’t think about a trip to Disney without thinking about a churro. Instead of a classic churro from one of the many carts around the parks, we ordered these churro bites with caramel dipping sauce in Mexico.
The Kringla Bakeri in Norway had too many pastries to choose from. I finally settled on the school bread. It is a dense bread, more dense than a cinnamon roll, filled with vanilla creme custard and topped with glazed and toasted coconut. That vanilla custard was so good. I needed more. 🙂 We bought the kids the mini frozen inspired cupcakes. They were really cute and the kids loved them. They fought over Olaf.
When in the Germany Pavillion of Epcot, you don’t have to go too far to find the most delicious sweet treats. Especially if you like caramel. As you enter the pavillion, on the left you’ll find the Werther’s Caramel shop. Not only does it smell delicious, but everything in it tastes delicious. This is the German chocolate chip cookie with caramel.
Because I love caramel so much, I included another treat from the same shop. This is the caramel s’more. I don’t usually love s’mores, but this was a really yummy s’more. If it wasn’t so warm the day we went, I would’ve saved this for later, but since I didn’t want it to melt, I suffered through and ended up eating almost the whole thing!
Croissant and donut lovers will love the cronut (croissant doughnut) from Refreshment Port near Canada in Epcot. You can order it with cinnamon and sugar, or topped with soft serve ice cream.
Best Treats at Hollywood Studios
Hollywood Studios was the park we spent the least amount of time in. Not because it isn’t great, it’s just hard to fit everything in. Even when you are at Walt Disney World for 5 days. We did manage to ride some rides, but we didn’t indulge in too many sweet treats. The one that we loved and devoured was the funnel cake with strawberry topping and soft serve vanilla ice cream. This received 10 thumbs up (2 thumbs up from everybody). Everything on this funnel cake was delicious. We found this at the Oasis Canteen right outside the Indiana Jones stunt show.
One thing I wanted to try this time but didn’t have a chance to was the carrot cake whoopie pie from Sweet Spells . This one will remain on my Walt Disney World food to try list for our next trip.
Best Treats at Animal Kingdom
There are so many more sweet treats at Animal Kingdom, but the one that surprised us the most were these haystacks. They are peanut butter covered potato chips! A little sweet and a little salty and something everyone in my family enjoyed. We found these yummy haystacks at Zuri’s Sweet Shop. It is in Africa near the Kilimanjaro Safaris.
Best Walt Disney World Treats
These sweet treats can be found at every park at Walt Disney World. They make delicious quick snacks or treats for sharing or for eating alone. 😉 These treats also are easy to take home to enjoy later.
These donuts are huge! My family of 5 easily shared this. And I’m not a huge donut fan, but these were delicious! You can find these at one of the many Joffrey’s booths at the parks. Pick yourself up a coffee or latte and donut first thing for a quick breakfast once you’re in the park. They have vanilla, chocolate and strawberry frostings to choose from.
You can’t beat a caramel apple from Disney! I had to take a picture of these adorable elephant caramel apples at Zuri’s sweet shop in Animal Kingdom. Caramel apples can be found at the bakeries and sweet shops around the parks and at Disney Springs. Some of the places to find these are Big Top Treats and Main Street Confectionary at the Magic Kingdom, Sweet Spells at Hollywood Studios and Goofy’s Candy Co. in Disney Springs.
They have different designs depending on which park you’re at or the season you are visiting Walt Disney World. Which ever caramel apple you choose to buy, you will not be disappointed. And ask if they’ll cut it for you. Then you can share and enjoy as you walk to your next ride.
Sugar cookies. Again I had to take a picture of these animal sugar cookies from Zuri’s Sweet Shop in AK. But sugar cookies can be found in the same bakeries and sweet shops as the caramel apples. We usually buy the Mickey shaped sugar cookies, I am a classic Mickey fan, but no matter the shape, they are always delicious.
