Best Things to Eat and Drink at Magic Kingdom

Dole Whip Float from Aloha Isle, Magic Kingdom

You guys, this is my NUMERO UNO. The treat that is a MUST HAVE on every single one of my Disney trips. Ahhhh, Dole Whip. Creamy, frozen pineapple goodness. You can get the soft serve on its own or as a Dole Whip Float, as shown below. I always opt for the float.

Mickey Rice Crispy Treats from Main Street Confectionery, Magic Kingdom

Now every Mickey Rice Crispy Treat is good – but this one covered in mini M&M’s? DIVINE. Pick it up on your way into Magic Kingdom, it’s a great start to the day!

Churros from Snack Carts, Magic Kingdom

Warm, crunchy, sugary, cinnamon-y (is that a word?) goodness. Now this one is my husband and my kids’ NUMERO UNO. I swear they smell the snack carts upon entry into the park. So we always stop here first, I can’t say that I blame them. I can’t way that I don’t walk away with my very own churro as well.
Churros from Snack Carts, Magic Kingdom

Mickey Pretzels from The Lunching Pad, Magic Kingdom

The perfect mid-meal snack! I always lean towards sweet treats at Disney, but when you need a little sustenance and you’ve already had too much sugar, the Mickey Pretzel is perfect! Get the cheese dipping sauce.

Cheshire Cat Tail from Cheshire Café, Magic Kingdom

You guys, this one is a MUST-HAVE! A warm croissant-like pastry filled with chocolate and drizzled with chocolate, what isn’t there to love! I also love the size and it’s easily shareable.

LeFou’s Brew from Gaston’s Tavern, Magic Kingdom

No one’s slick as Gaston. No one’s quick as Gaston. No one’s neck’s as incredibly thick as Gaston’s. A stop at Gaston’s Tavern is a must. Even if you’re not an avid BATB fan (my husband isn’t), even he loves going there. First up, grab a pint of LeFou’s Brew! UPDATE: Now the brew Delicious, especially on a warm day! The souvenir mugs are fun, but it’s just as tasty in a throw-away cup. You decide!
LeFou's Brew from Gaston's Tavern, Magic Kingdom

Warm Cinnamon Roll from Gaston’s Tavern, Magic Kingdom

You know what goes great with a pint of LeFou’s Brew? A HUGE warm and delicious cinnamon roll! Just grab one to share, this buddy can feed at least 2. Also great to divvy up among the fam for a little treat.

Mickey’s Ice Cream Bars from Ice Cream Carts, Magic Kingdom

This is my oldest’s favorite. I think it blew his mind the first time he realized he could get an ice cream popsicle AT Disney. And it’s Mickey-shaped. What’s not to love?
Mickey’s Ice Cream Bars from Ice Cream Carts, Magic Kingdom

Peter Pan Float from Storybook Treats, Magic Kingdom

Ok, now I’ve told you that Dole Whip is my #1, and that’s the pineapple version…but I have to tell you the Peter Pan Float almost tipped the scales! Made with Sprite topped with Lime Dole Whip soft serve and a Chocolate Feather (do NOT eat the feather, yuck), this float is amazing on a warm Florida day!

Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich from Sleepy Hollow, Magic Kingdom

YOU GUYS. I’m sure you’ve seen this one on Instagram a million times, because not only is it IG worthy, it’s also 100% amazing. Imageine: a huge freshly cooked waffle, drizzled with chocolate-hazelnut spread (aka Nutella) and topped with fresh fruit. It’s a dream.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake from Aloha Isle, Magic Kingdom

Take your Dole Whip up a notch with this one! Here, a delicious pineapple upside down cake is topped with your choice of pineapple, vanilla or swirl soft serve.

Loaded Buffalo Chicken Tots from The Friar’s Nook, Magic Kingdom

Oh em gee. If you are a fan of buffalo chicken, I HIGHLY recommend this tasty snack! Honestly so much of what I love from Disney are sweet snacks but this savory sensation tops my list. Delicious and filling!

French Onion Soup from Be Our Guest Restaurant, Magic Kingdom

We had the awesome opportunity to dine at Be Our Guest during one of our stops last year and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it! Everything we had was top notch. I started out my meal with the French Onion Soup, topped with a Crouton and Gruyère Cheese. TONS of melty cheese goodness… Dining at Be Our Guest made our Top 10 Things to do at Walt Disney World!

Best Things to Eat and Drink in Animal Kingdom

Dole Whip with Rum from Tamu Tamu Refreshments, Animal Kingdom

Now HERE’S a treat for mama. I have to say that I’ve never had a Dole Whip better than this one with COCONUT RUM in Animal Kingdom! You can also opt for dark rum, but this will be one Disney drink you’ll remember!
Dole Whip with Rum from Tamu Tamu Refreshments, Animal Kingdom

Night Blossom from Pongu Pongu, Animal Kingdom

PANDORA IS AMAZING friends! If you haven’t made plans for a visit, do that ASAP. You can also check out our 10 Reasons to Visit Pandora if you need more convincing. One of my favorite parts of our visit there was grabbing the iconic Night Blossom Frozen Beverage! A frozen limeade with apple and pear flavors topped with passion fruit boba balls. YUMMY! And it’s so pretty too…
Night Blossom from Pongu Pongu, Pandora at Animal Kingdom

Pongu Lumpia from Pongu Pongu, Animal Kingdom

I just love Pongu Pongu, because not only do they have one of the best drinks at Disney World, they also have a tasty snack! The Pongu Lumpia is a sweet spring roll filled with pineapple cream cheese. YUM!
Pongu Lumpia from Pongu Pongu

Satu’li Sampler Platter from Satu’li Canteen, Animal Kingdom

Ok, now this one is meant for a GROUP and is pricey! If you’re just buying for you, opt for the Combination Bowl: Grilled Beef & Chicken, the Slow-Roasted Sliced Grilled Beef Bowl or the Chopped Wood-Grilled Chicken Bowl…depending on your tastes. But this sampler lets you try ALL of it, your choice of four proteins and a sampling of each of the bases and sauces, served with vegetable slaw and beverages. It’s life-changing.

Cheeseburger Steamed Pod from Satu’li Canteen, Animal Kingdom

Ok, this is one you have to try at least once, the infamous Steamed Cheeseburger Pod! Some folks thought it had gone away, but alas it’s still on the Satu’li kids menu. Stuffed with ground Beef, ketchup, mustard, pickle and cheddar cheese, this little bao is unique!

Giraffe Marshmallow Wand from Zuri’s Sweets Shop, Animal Kingdom

Are you a fan of the marshmallow wand? They’re such simple and tasty treats! While classic Mickey Mouse Wands are fun, so are this adorable Giraffe-inspired treat you can get at Animal Kingdom! They’re huge hits with the kiddos (young and old)!

Best Things to Eat in Hollywood Studios

A Sampling of Mom’s Favorite Recipes from 50’s Prime Time Café, Hollywood Studios

Ok, so many go to 50’s Prime Time Café for the amazing atmosphere, but their food is amazing too! If you have a hard time deciding on just what meal to get, I HIGHLY suggest getting A Sampling of Mom’s Favorite Recipes: Golden-fried Chicken, Fork Tender Pot Roast, and Traditional Meatloaf with all the fixings. You can’t go wrong there! And if you aren’t super hungry, this is a great meal to share.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Milk Shake from 50’s Prime Time Café, Hollywood Studios

Ok, now that you have what I think is the best dish at 50’s Prime time, it’s time for the BEST drink…and that’s the Peanut Butter & Jelly Milk Shake! You guys, it’s so thick and creamy and AMAZING. A must-try!

Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich from Woody’s Lunch Box, Hollywood Studios

If you’re a cheese lover, you’re going to want to get this Grilled Cheese Sandwich from Woody’s Lunch Box! I wasn’t expecting much, but man oh man, it was delish! Melted Provolone, Cheddar, and American on Grilled Sourdough Bread with a garlic spread you’ll swoon over.

Shirley Temple from The Hollywood Brown Derby, Hollywood Studios

This fun restaurant in the heart of Hollywood Studios is an authentic replica of the famous Brown Derby, sharing some of their most famous dishes! We recently learned that the Shirley Temple, the original mocktail, was created for little Shirley on her 10th birthday at the restaurant. So I just had to order one, and in true Shirley Temple fashion, it was delicious!

Our Famous Cobb Salad from The Hollywood Brown Derby, Hollywood Studios

The Brown Derby is famous for more than just the Shirley Temple. My most favorite salad of all time – The Cobb Salad – was invented at the Brown Derby, named for the restaurant’s owner, Robert Howard Cobb. Finely Chopped Greens, Turkey Breast, Bacon, Egg, Tomatoes, Crumbled Blue Cheese, Avocado, Chives, and Cobb Dressing, the salad was amazing – a MUST order!

Best Things to Eat in EPCOT

Beef Brisket Poutine from Refreshment Port, Canada Pavilion

You guys, I don’t know if you’ve ever had poutine, but THIS little “snack” is out of this world! French Fries with Beef Brisket, Beer-Cheese Sauce and Poutine Gravy topped with Crispy Onions…it’s not a snack, really it’s a MEAL. Perfect for sharing.
Beef Brisket Poutine from Refreshment Port

Le Cellier Filet Mignon from Le Cellier Steakhouse, Canada Pavilion

The Cheddar Cheese Soup is a great starter, but the star of this meal was certainly the Filet! A AAA Canadian Tenderloin with Mushroom Risotto, Asparagus-Tomato Relish and Truffle-Butter Sauce – delicious from the first bite to the last!
Le Cellier Filet Mignon from Le Cellier Steakhouse, Epcot World Showcase

Fish and Chips from Rose & Crown Dining Room, United Kingdom Pavilion

We snagged this tastiness during our last trip to WDW with the kids! We always stop by Rose & Crown for pints, but this time we didn’t go into the pub but opted for a sit down meal with the kiddos. We split the adults Fish & Chips (the huge portion you see in the back) and the kids split the kids Fish & Chips, the little basket you see up front. They are hot, crispy and delicious – and as you can see generous portions. We’d definitely go back for more! TIP: If you don’t have time for a sit down meal, you can grab similar Fish & Chips outside the Rose & Crown at the Yorkshire County Fish Shop kiosk!
 Fish and Chips from Rose & Crown Dining Room, Epcot World Showcase

Pub Blends from Rose & Crown Dining Room, United Kingdom Pavilion

I opted for the Snake Bite, which is half Cider and half Harp. Andre got “Carl’s Blend,” half Harp and half Becks. Carl is a Cast Member at Rose & Crown that we’ve seen a few times now. We always make a stop here and get a pint, it’s tradition! They have a number of other pub blends on their menu, so make sure you stop by and try one!
Pub Blends from Rose & Crown Dining Room, United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase

Grand Marnier Slush from Les Vins des Chefs de France, France Pavilion

Made with Grand Marnier, Rum and Grey Goose Orange and Orange Juice – these slushies are a fan-favorite! You’ll see plenty of folks walking around with these glasses near the France Pavilion.
Grand Marnier Slush from Les Vins des Chefs de France

Chocolate Crépe from Crêpes de Chefs de France, France Pavilion

Mmmm mmm mmm… there are few things that really stick out in my memory from my trip to Paris years ago, but the crepes are certainly one of them! And this sweet little treat fits the bill, drizzled in chocolate.
Chocolate Crépe from Crêpes de Chefs de France, France Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase

Macarons from Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie, France Pavilion

Shhhh…don’t tell anyone but I’ve never been the hugest fan of macarons. But I take that all back after trying them from Les Halles! So good and worth the stop!
Macarons from Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie, France Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase

Wood-fired Authenic Pizza Napoletana from Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria, Italy Pavilion

Enjoy traditional Neapolitan pizza delivered right to your table, from cheesy quattro formaggi to sausage-topped piccante. The thin-crust pizzas are made with fresh mozzarella cheese, San Marzano tomatoes and real Caputo flour imported from Southern Italy. Water for the dough is even sourced from a spring similar to Italy’s Campania region.

Limoncello from Via Napoli Donkey Cart, Italy Pavilion

If you’re a limoncello fan, this cute, bright little donkey cart outside of Via Napoli is a must visit! They only serve a few cocktails but you’re sure to find what you like – this Limoncello packs a punch. Sit and sip as you people watch from the streets of Italy.

Tangier’s Breeze from Spice Road Table, Morocco Pavilion

I think I could spend a whole day in the Morocco Pavilion! It’s so pretty and the type of food is right up my alley. It’s on my list. But for now, the Tangier’s Breeze (recommended by the bartender) with Peach Vodka, Midori, and Pineapple Juice is delicious and refreshing! Perfect for a World Showcase pit stop.

Tonkotsu Ramen from Katsura Grill, Japan Pavilion

My husband is a HUGE ramen fan. So no doubt we had to stop for a bit to eat at Katsura Grill. You might notice that most of our Epcot recommendations are from quick-serve restaurants. That’s because I love to try a little of everything! This noodle shop is small but mighty. The ramen was great!
Tonkotsu Ramen from Katsura Grill, Japan Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase

Tokyo Sunset from the Outdoor Sake Bar, Japan Pavilion

Ok, so I feel really bad because we went here for the sake, but LEFT with out hands filled with Toyko Sunsets! I couldn’t resist – with Coconut Rum, Peach Schnapps, Banana Liqueur, and Pineapple Juice – it’s totally my kind of drink. I keep meaning to make a copycat to enjoy at home because this was one of my favorites! Sake next time…
Tokyo Sunset from the Outdoor Sake Bar, Japan Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase

Rainbow Kakigōri with Sweet Milk Topping from Kabuki Cafe, Japan Pavilion

Now I know you’ve heard about this one, right? The Rainbow Japanese Shaved Ice with sweet milk is amazing! So refreshing on a warm day at Epcot and the colorful rainbow of shaved ice will just make you smile. Worth the stop!
Rainbow Kakigōri with Sweet Milk Topping from Kabuki Cafe, Japan Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase

Bratwurst from Sommerfest, Germany Pavilion

This was one of my husband’s favorites! He loves a good bratwurst and said this one was very well done! Served on a freshly baked Roll with Sauerkraut with House-made Paprika Chips, if you’re a fan of sausage – you’ve gotta stop at the Germany Pavilion!
Bratwurst from Sommerfest, Germany Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase

Apple Strudel with Vanilla Sauce from Sommerfest, Germany Pavilion

Now this what caught my eye when we visited the Germany Pavilion – Apple Strudel! I mean, just look at that yummy vanilla sauce. It was so tasty (with a German beer)! If you’d like to try your hand at your own, Disney Parks has shared the recipe here.

Schöfferhofer Grapefruit from Sommerfest, Germany Pavilion

Ok, I know you were thinking WHERE IS THE BEER during our last two items from the Germany Pavilion, and we’re finally here. You of course have to try the beer. There are many varieties (even more in bottled form) for you to choose from, but the most popular and the one we enjoyed was the Schöfferhofer Grapefruit beer. Prost!

School Bread from Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe, Norway Pavilion

The School Bread is the star of the Norway Pavilion! This Sweet Cardamom Bun filled with Vanilla Crème Custard and topped with Glazed and Toasted Coconut pairs perfectly with a Viking Coffee, on our GUIDE TO DRINKING AROUND THE WORLD AT EPCOT!

School Bread from Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe, Epcot World Showcase

Troll Horn from Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe, Norway Pavilion

I had the HARDEST time deciding on what to get, but in true Nordic fashion I chose the Troll Horn this time around: Cloudberry Jam with Whipped Cream in a Crispy Pastry Sugar-coated Shell. Festive and delicious!
 Troll Horn from Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe, Norway Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase

Chips and Guacamole from La Cantina de San Angel, Mexico Pavilion

Now this Southwest gal is ALL about the chips and guac! I went into this skeptical if Disney all the way in Orlando could get it right, but the Fresh-made Guacamole with Tortilla Chips from the Mexico Pavilion was fantastic! Even on the spicy side – well done, Disney!
Chips & Guacamole from La Cantina de San Angel, Mexico Pavilion at Epcot

Churros with Caramel Sauce from La Cantina de San Angel, Mexico Pavilion

These sweet little churros are a little different from what you’ll get at the snack carts in the other parks so they’re worth mentioning on their own! That caramel sauce though…
Churros with Caramel Sauce from La Cantina de San Angel, Mexico Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase

Lime Frozen Margarita from La Cantina de San Angel, Mexico Pavilion

Also enjoyable from my seasoned Southwestern perspective – the frozen margarita! This sweet drink may look innocent, but it was strong, AND it was big enough to share! Bonus!

Indian-style Bread Service from Sanaa, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village

On our last visit to Walt Disney World we had the opportunity for a hosted lunch at Sanna. All of the food was fantastic, but the most memorable was their amazing bread service! You get a choice of Five Breads – Traditional Naan, Garlic-Ginger Naan, Spiced Naan, Onion Kucha, or Paneer Paratha. And a choice of Three Accompaniments – Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, Mango Chutney, Tomato-Date Jam, Tamarind Chutney, Coriander Chuntey, Garlic Pickle, Red Chile Sambal, or Spicy Jalapeño-Lime Pickle. We got a little taste of each and there are some stunners! I could have filled up just on the bread!

Ice Cream Cone from Ample Hills Creamery, Disney’s BoardWalk

This is a must-stop for me at Disney. Ample Hills is stocked with the most amazing flavors AND the best flavored cones! Get a scoop (OR TWO) next time you’re nearby!
Ice Cream Pretzel Cone from Ample Hills Creamery, Disney's BoardWalk

The Conjurita from AbracadaBar, Disney’s BoardWalk

Another favorite stop on Disney’s BoardWalk is AbracadaBar! It’s a small, quaint little lounge but packed full of tasty cocktails, story telling and secrets! Like this margarita, a tasty concoction that changes colors right before your eyes!
The Conjurita from AbracadaBar, Disney's BoardWalk

Wagyu Filet Mignon from Flying Fish, Disney’s BoardWalk

We’re nearing the end here…we also got the chance to stop by the Flying Fish for dinner for food and fun! The kitchen is open to the dining room so you can see the Cast Members busy at work preparing your amazing food. I opted for the Filet (do you sense a theme? I love good steak!) with Fingerling Potatoes, Asparagus, Rainbow Carrots, Bordelaise Sauce. It did not disappoint!
Wagyu Filet Mignon from Flying Fish, Disney's BoardWalk

Cape May Cafe Character Dining Breakfast, Disney’s Beach Club Resort

I’ve done a lot of character dining and ‘Ohana is still my favorite, but we stopped by Cape May on our last visit and I was floored! Their breakfast buffet was AMAZING. I piled my plate high with amazing egg scrambles, bacon and Mickey Waffles (of course) and then a side of pictures with the characters didn’t hurt.
Cape May Cafe Character Dining Breakfast, Disney's Beach Club Resort

Mickey Beignets from Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter

This may go without saying – if you’re staying near or visiting Port Orleans, GET THE BEIGNETS! You won’t be sorry.

Breakfast at Riverside Mill Food Court, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside

So this may seem a strange recommendation, but I absolutely loved having breakfast at Riverside Mill Food Court during our stay at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort! Everything you love about Disney breakfasts is available for you to choose from and I found it go-at-your-own-pace, relaxed and enjoyable!
