Everglazed | Disney Springs

New to the Disney Springs scene, Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew is serving up the most delicious donuts in the Orlando area. Yep, I said it. Everglazed Disney Springs is better than the VooDoo Donuts at Universal City Walk!

Are you looking for somewhere new to grab a quick breakfast or a sweet afternoon treat on your day off from the parks? Everglazed is where it’s at!

Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew

Everglazed is located in Disney Springs’ West Side district, closest to the Orange Parking Garage. It’s in between the AMC theater and Splitsville – another one of our fave dining locations!

Wall of donuts at Everglazed Donuts and Cold Brew

Like most donut shops, you walk up to the counter to order, and you can check out all the sweet deliciousness behind the counter while you wait. There are windows lining the shop so you can actually watch them create monstrous treats if the line stretches outside – which it usually does.

Inside Everglazed Disney Springs

Everglazed seems to run like a well-oiled machine. If you’re ordering donuts, they give them to you when you pay. If you order a breakfast sandwich (that you can upgrade to come between 2 glazed donuts!) or coffee, you pick it up at the end of the counter once they’re ready.

Smiling girl with glazed donut

Even with all the delicious choices, Ellie wanted her usual order – a glazed donut. I love that she always wants something simple like glazed because it allows me to compare donuts at a more basic level.

Massive donuts from Everglazed

The rest of the crew wanted something a little… heartier!

Brooklyn Blackout: Chocolate glazed donut, chocolate icing, mini chocolate chips, chocolate buttercream, chocolate wafer cookies
Cinnamon Toast Crunch: Cinnamon iced donut, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, cream cheese frosting, dusted with cinnamon sugar
Mounds Coconut Dream: Coconut-almond iced donut, toasted coconut, chopped Mounds, cream cheese frosting, vanilla icing drizzle

Double Chocolate Nitro Everglazed Donuts and Cold Brew

One of my favorite things about Everglazed is the cold brew coffee + donut combos! This one, the Double Chocolate Nitro is made with: nitro cold brew, chocolate milk, chocolate & white chocolate syrups, topped with a Brooklyn Blackout donut. Totally sweet and totally delicious!

Maple Double Bacon donut + cold brew at Everglazed Disney Springs

But my all-time fave order at Everglazed is a Maple Double Bacon donut + a large cold brew with cream. It’s honestly the BEST maple bacon donut I’ve ever had. The bacon is flavorful, plentiful, and crispy, and it goes perfectly with the maple frosting.

Have you been to Everglazed yet?? Are you more likely to stick to the basics like glazed or sprinkles or get something totally out there like a peanut butter explosion when you get a donut??

Paddlefish: The Best Kids’ Meals at Disney Springs

We’ve eaten at MANY restaurants at Disney Springs and I can easily say, without a doubt, that the kids’ meals at Paddlefish are the absolute BEST. The variety is unmatched, the quality is exceptional, and while slightly on the pricier side outside of Disney, they’re well worth every dollar.

Thank you so much to Paddlefish for hosting us- we received a complimentary meal, but as always, all opinions are honest and my own.

Paddlefish is conveniently docked at The Landing at Disney Springs – and given that it’s shaped like a modern steamboat, there’s no missing the restaurant.

Mask bags at Paddlefish Disney Springs

Like Terralina Crafted Italian, Paddlefish gives you these cute little bags to put your mask in while you eat. There are two floors of indoor dining space as well as a rooftop level. We definitely recommend sitting outside on the rooftop deck if you can.

Smiling family on rooftop deck at Paddlefish

One of my absolute FAVORITE parts of dining at Paddlefish is the view. I mean, where else can you get a view of Disney Springs like this?! In fact, it’s the only restaurant at Disney Springs to have rooftop waterfront seating and I bet it would be absolutely magical closer to sunset.

Paddlefish Menu

Like many restaurants, Paddlefish is still using single-use menus and is operating with slightly fewer offerings – but there’s still PLENTY to choose from.

Paddlefish Children's Menu with Wikki Stix

Now, since this post is highlighting the exceptional Children’s Menu at Paddlefish, let’s start right here. In addition to having a variety of entree choices ranging from typical chicken fingers and burgers to filet and crab, kids also get a pack of Wikki Stix to play with while they wait. We’ve never played with Wikki Stix before but oh my gosh, the kids LOVED them! The wax-covered yarn strips are bendable, twistable, and stick to each other allowing for hours of play – and they kept our table quiet so I could read the menu in peace.

Appetizers at Paddlefish Disney Springs

Bowl of Clam Chowder at Paddlefish Disney Springs

We often order a couple of appetizers for the table to split and this dinner was no different. We started with a bowl of the New England Clam Chowder and it was delicious. The big kids are more of a fan of seafood than Ellie but everyone said it was some of the best clam chowder around.

Crab guacamole and sangria at Paddlefish Disney Springs

Then we moved on to the Crab Guacamole. If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I’m SUPER picky about my guac but this stuff was goooooood. Just the right combo of tomato, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime, and then covered in lump crab + the tortilla chips were covered in Tajin. Heart eyes all the way!

Executive Chef Steven Richard Paddlefish Disney Springs

Executive Chef Steven Richard stopped by the table to talk about the menu and help the kids finalize their entree selections. We chatted all things crab – like the difference between snow crab and king crab.

Paddlefish Entrees (Including Kids’ Meal Options)

Paddlefish Disney Springs Kids' Menu Salmon

Without further ado, let’s get to those kids’ meals! Lexie opted for the Fish of the Day (which was and is usually) salmon and said it was prepared perfectly. It was served with mashed potatoes and green beans and proved to be the perfect amount of food for her. While Disney kids’ meals are usually intended for the 9 and under crowd, Lexie (12) and Ben (13) had no problem ordering off of the children’s menu.

Paddlefish Disney Springs Kids' Menu Filet Skewers

The littlest kiddo ordered the Filet Skewers – what can I say, she has great taste! Perfectly medium, these skewers checked every one of her boxes: delicious, filling, and finger food!

Paddlefish Disney Springs Children's Menu Snow Crab

Rounding out the kids’ meal crew, Ben ordered the Snow Crab. It’s normally served with corn on the cob and red potatoes but he opted for fries instead of corn since braces make corn on the cob difficult to eat.

How to crack snow crab legs

Since Ben had never ordered crab before, he didn’t know how to crack the shells. Our phenomenal waitress gave him a quick lesson and then he was on his way to crab deliciousness.

Paddlefish Disney Springs Kids' Menu

These two were HAPPY campers with their menu choices. They opted for things that aren’t on a normal kids’ menu and got to pretend they were adults for the night PLUS they could eat with their hands!

Stuffed Cod at Paddlefish Disney Springs

At Chef Steven’s recommendation, I ordered the Stuffed Cod, a Paddlefish favorite. Featuring their famous shrimp and scallop cornbread stuffing, the Stuffed Cod was absolutely amazing. The flavors worked perfectly together and I’m still dreaming about the mustard cream sauce. SO GOOD!!

Nick ordered the Salmon with Miso Vinaigrette (what I was originally going to order!). With a veggie stirfry and wasabi mashed potatoes, this dish is an explosion of flavor and definitely on the spicy side. Nick and I both loved it but if you’re spice averse, I’d skip it or order regular mashed potatoes.

Dessert at Paddlefish

Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae Paddlefish Disney Springs

Dessert is an important part of any vacation meal and the Paddlefish dessert options did not disappoint. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae was a fun treat. While it’s not award-worthy or anything, it was prepared well and a fine option.

Chocolate Layer Cake Paddlefish Disney Springs

The chocolate cake lovers in our group devoured the Chocolate Layer Cake with its varying chocolatey textures.

Brownie Sundae Paddlefish Disney Springs

And the Brownie Sundae was quickly gobbled up. While none of the desserts were particularly inventive, they were all solid options and a great end to a delicious meal. I’ve heard that there’s a flourless chocolate cake and key lime pie that are amazing, but they’re not back on the menu yet.

Kids' Menu Cookies and Milk Paddlefish Disney Springs

On the kids’ menu, there’s a Milk and Cookies dessert option and I honestly don’t know why this isn’t on the menu at more restaurants! Ellie LOVED her choice as well as the presentation. I mean, who doesn’t like drinking their milk out of a bottle?!

Paddlefish Physical Distancing marker

Like most restaurants we’ve encountered on Disney property, Paddlefish did a great job following the new COVID protocols. Guests were seated at tables that were spread out, physical distancing was enforced and masks were required when walking around.

Family Dinner at Terralina Crafted Italian | Disney Springs

Conveniently located at The Landing at Disney Springs, Terralina Crafted Italian is inspired by Italy’s Lake District, and with innovative (and delicious!!) dishes from executive chef Justin Plank, there is something for everyone. Terralina has been on our list of restaurants to try at Disney Springs for a while now, and I am so glad that we finally had the chance to go- I can say, without a doubt, that Terralina Crafted Italian needs to be on your Disney food bucket list!

Kids wearing masks outside Terralina Crafted Italian

Thank you so much to Terralina Crafted Italian for hosting us- we received a complimentary meal, but as always, all opinions are honest and my own.

Exterior of Terralina Crafted Italian at Disney Springs

Due to COVID-19, my personal comfort level with dining in a restaurant has drastically changed. For our past trips to Florida, I typically sought out restaurants with indoor dining and cold AC to get us out of the Florida sun and get a break from the heat. However, with all of the unknowns surrounding COVID transmission, I am now much more comfortable with outdoor dining, even though that means no AC. With both indoor and outdoor dining options, Terralina Crafted Italian– a new to us restaurant!- proved to be the perfect choice.

When you arrive at the restaurant, they have distancing lines on the ground (even outside!) to ensure that parties stay away from each other. And as soon as you walk inside to check-in, hand sanitizer is available!

Paper bag for COVID mask at Terralina Crafted Italian

They give you a cute paper bag to store your mask which I absolutely love. I’ve seen other places that give you a plate, but I like the bags so you can store them out-of-the-way and not clutter the table.

Limited paper menu at Terralina Crafted Italian

Terralina is offering a slightly more limited menu than usual right now but there are plenty of choices to please everyone in your family. Menus are single-use paper to minimize touchpoints- and they make a great souvenir!

Plate of bruschetta at Terralina

We started our meal with the Bruschetta and it was a crowd-pleaser! The tomato, basil pesto, and shaved parmesan were the perfect complement to the crusty bread.

Outdoor patio and lakeside dining at Terralina Crafted Italian Disney Springs

Terralina has two options for outdoor dining: a covered patio, and an uncovered area right by the lake. We opted to dine lakeside and it was gorgeous! Even though the high that day was over 90°, we were all totally comfortable dining outdoors in the evening.

Smiling teens/kids enjoying a family dinner at Terralina

Smiling faces ready for a delicious dinner!

Teen boy with a plate of salmon and risotto

If there’s an interesting fish dish on the menu, that’s often what Nick will get (especially if it’s salmon!), so when he heard that the Catch of the Day was in fact salmon, I knew that was going to be his order.

Catch of the day at Terralina Crafted Italian

The salmon was cooked perfectly and served over a creamy bed of saffron risotto with blistered tomatoes and olives. I had to stop him from licking the plate clean – it was that good!

Girl with kids pepperoni pizza from Terralina

Ellie ordered the Pepperoni Pizza off of the kids’ menu and declared it some of the best she’s ever had. Due to COVID, they’re bringing grated Parmesan cheese to the table in disposable cups, which worked well for her so she could dump an entire cup on her pizza.

Teen girl with giant Italian Grinder at Terralina Crafted Italian

Lexie ordered the Italian Grinder with the housemade pecorino-truffle potato chips. She absolutely loved the sandwich but said that her meal was kind of bread-y. After eating the first half of her sandwich, she took the insides out of the second half.

Pizza of the week: Salmon at Terralina

Christopher was originally planning to order the Spicy Capicola pizza, but when he heard that the Pizza of the Week was a salmon pizza, he was intrigued. Oh my gosh, let me tell you, the salmon on this pizza was absolutely amazing- such a great combination of flavors!

Spaghetti bolognese and a glass of red wine at Terralina

I ordered one of their more traditional pasta dishes, the Spaghetti Bolognese, made with beef, pork, and pancetta meat sauce. I don’t normally order spaghetti with meat sauce at restaurants because I am partial to my own recipe, but this was amazing and I am so glad I ordered it. I couldn’t finish it so the kids passed my bowl around, gobbling up bits and pieces.

Teen boy with a giant gelato sundae at Terralina

No meal is complete without dessert so you can be sure that we ordered an assortment- it was for research, after all!

Gelato sundae with salted caramel and vanilla gelato

The Gelato Sundae traditionally comes with pistachio, chocolate, and vanilla gelato, but they were fine with the kids mixing and matching flavors (including the flavor of the day- salted caramel) to get exactly what they wanted.

Teen boy with Chocolate Paradiso cake from Terralina

As soon as Nick saw the menu, like before we even ordered dinner(!), he decided he was getting the Chocolate Paradiso cake for dessert.

Chocolate Paradiso Cake from Terralina Crafted Italian

Easily the best dessert we ordered, the Chocolate Paradiso cake is a chocolate layer cake with chocolate ganache and toffee crunch served with a side of mixed berries. I am not a chocolate cake fan and even I thought this cake was amazing- it was moist, decadent, and completely delicious. Nick deemed this one his favorite cake of all time and he wants to go back again for his birthday- or figure out how to get it shipped to North Carolina!

Girl enjoying a cup of chocolate gelato at Terralina

Ellie ordered the kids chocolate gelato and thoroughly enjoyed it, and now prefers gelato to regular ice cream. Can you blame her?!

Cannoli at Terralina Crafted Italian

Overall, we had a fantastic meal at Terralina Crafted Italian and it will become a regular on our Disney Springs dining rotation. Even with the limited menu, there are still many other dishes that I would love to try, and I can’t wait to go back when they have the full menu! They normally offer cooking classes for kids and adults so once all of this COVID mess is over and done with, I hope they start back up again because that would be fun to do on an off-day from the parks.

Speaking of COVID, Terralina exceeded my expectations on that front. From the physical distancing markers, to the availability of hand sanitizer, to the single-use menus, I wasn’t concerned about our exposure. Masks are required from guests throughout Disney Springs and at Terralina, they’re required until you’re seated at your table. Every staff member we encountered at the restaurant, from the hostess to the manager, was wearing a mask the entire time we were there.

While sitting outside is where my current COVID comfort level is at, I understand that others are completely fine with indoor dining. I did take a quick walk through the dining room, and as I expected, tables are distanced, the restaurant is operating at a limited capacity, and guests and staff alike were complying with the mask policies. I cannot wait to dine indoors once this is over because the open-kitchen concept is one of my favorites.

Splitsville | Disney Springs

Can you believe that with all the times that we’ve been to Walt Disney World, we’ve NEVER been to Splitsville Lanes at Disney Springs?! Well, except for the time the boys ventured in to play pool while the girls were at the Wonderland Tea Party last summer. Needless to say, we were super excited to check it out this summer!

Splitsville Bowling BallsThank you so much to Splitsville for hosting us- we received a complimentary lunch and bowling but all opinions are honest and my own.

Splitsville Lanes Sign at Disney Springs

We regularly go to Disney Springs when we’re in Orlando, but for whatever reason, we don’t typically make it over to the West Side. Splitsville is a quick walk from the Orange Parking Garage and right next to the new NBA Experience that opens in August 2019.

Entrance area at Splitsville Lanes

As soon as you walk in the front door, you’re greeted with bright colors and a seriously FUN atmosphere! We hopped in the line for bowling (it is a bowling alley, after all!) but you can also come for a meal without doing bowling/billiards– and spoiler alert, I totally would if we only had time to eat!

Mickey bowling ball at Splitsville Lanes Disney Springs

And guess who’s on the bowling balls? I mean, really, where else can you bowl with a Mickey bowling ball?! We loved the assortment of Mickey and Minnie balls, along with the Splitsville logoed ones and it made it easier to keep track of which ball everyone was using.

Bowling on an off-day from Disney Parks

Unlike our local bowling alley, at Splitsville you let them know what size shoes you need and they DELIVER them to your lane in a basket! We got our shoes on and then it was time to BOWL!

Cucumber Cooler and Piña Colada in front of the bowling lanes

After perusing the extensive drink menu for a bit, we ordered the Cucumber Cooler and a Piña Colada to enjoy while we were bowling- and a round of root beers for the kids!

Gutterball and Strike screens while bowling

We all got a kick out of the screens above the lanes that both made fun of our lack of bowling skills and praised us when we got a lucky strike!

Bowling ramp for kids make it easy for the younger set to bowl

And Ellie loved that they had ball ramps for little kids! She opted for the ramp and felt like one of the big kids since she didn’t need to use the bumpers (but they’re definitely available if any kids or adults in your group want to use them)!

Firehouse (buffalo chicken) pizza at Splitsville Disney Springs

Oh my gosh, if you would have told me that a bowling alley would have had some of the best food of our Disney vacation, I never would have believed you. But it did! The Firehouse pizza was ah-mazing- quite literally one of the best buffalo chicken pizzas I’ve ever had.

Impossible burger and bowling alley sushi

We also tried the plant-based Impossible Burger and it was wayyyy better than I expected! We’re not even remotely close to being vegetarians so we were trying it out just for fun but it was so delicious that we all said we would order it again. And bowling alley sushi should be a thing from now on! I was so excited when Ben wanted to order the Spicy Tuna Roll because I really wanted to try it– and it was SO. GOOD!

Kids' chicken tenders and Ghirardelli brownie a la mode

Splitsville has meals for the little ones, too. Ellie ordered the Chicken Tenders since they’re her go-to order everywhere. They were great and the portion was HUGE for a kid’s meal. And you can’t have lunch without dessert- or at least we can’t if we’re on vacation(!)- so we took our waitress’s advice and ordered the Ghirardelli Brownie a la Mode. Okay, technically we ordered two since we have a big crew and she was raving about the awesomeness of the brownie!

Kids watching Ellie bowl with bowling ramp

After fueling up, we were back to bowling!

Excited faces after she gets a strike

I love that the kids were so excited for each other every time that the ball rolled down the lane. And when Ellie finally got a strike, they couldn’t contain themselves!

Family fun at Splitsville Lanes Disney Springs

We had a fabulous time at Splitsville and I honestly don’t know why we didn’t visit sooner! When we plan Disney World trips we make sure to have off-days from the parks and a trip to Splitsville for bowling and delicious food would be the perfect way to spend an afternoon. It would also make a great late-night date night if you’re traveling without the kiddos!

Tips For Splitsville

  • You can book a Dining Only reservation on OpenTable
  • For Priority Bowling and Lane Reservations (with 24-hour notice), you can email kingpin@splitsvillelanes.com or call 407.938.7467
  • Splitsville offers substantial discounts if you bowl before noon which is perfect with the kiddos!

Frontera Cocina: Family Dinner at Disney Springs

It’s no secret that Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs is one of our favorite places for Mexican food at Walt Disney World! We had such a great time (and great food!) on our Frontera Cocina date night last year that we definitely wanted to bring the kids along on our trip this year. Owned by celeb Chef Rick Bayless, Frontera Cocina features foods from all over Mexico- and on this visit, we were super excited to try the new “Taste of Baja” menu.

Frontera Cocina Family DiningThanks to Frontera Cocina for hosting us for a delicious dinner! We received a complimentary meal but all of my opinions are honest and my own.

Frontera Cocina Disney Springs Exterior

Frontera Cocina, located in the Town Center area of Disney Springs, is a quick walk from the Lime parking garage (which has FREE PARKING!). Our reservation was smack-dab in the middle of a torrential downpour so I think most people headed into the stores to escape the storm.

Drinks at Frontera Cocina

I loved the Sangria so much on our last trip to Frontera Cocina that I just HAD to order it again- and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! Pretty sure it’s my favorite sangria ANYWHERE! I ordered the Vuelve A La Vida for Jacob: Pacifico draft beer, El Velo blanco tequila, lime juice, house-made mix and hot sauce served with candied bacon and an avocado slice! I was totally intrigued by the bacon and avocado accompaniments and he said the whole thing was pretty tasty!

Crispy Chipotle Calamari

In addition to chips and salsa, we ordered the Crispy Chipotle Calamari from the new “Taste of Baja” menu and it was a hit with our whole table! It comes with caramelized lime aioli and chile de arbol salsa and our crew couldn’t decide which one was their fave since they were both delicious.

All the kids enjoying dinner at Frontera

I love that our kids are old enough that we can easily take them to restaurants and have a nice meal together. Frontera Cocina has a decent kids menu with quesadillas and tacos, both served with rice and carrots, so even the pickiest eater should be able to find something. And they have high chairs and all that jazz if you’re traveling with little ones because even though this is a table service restaurant, it’s still Disney World, and families are definitely welcome. The crowd does get louder/more adult as the night goes on but it’s not so rowdy that I wouldn’t take our crew for a late dinner if that’s the only time we could visit.

Grilled Florida Pink Shrimp

I ordered the Grilled Florida Pink Shrimp from the new “Taste of Baja” menu and it was my absolute favorite thing of the night! The shrimp was cooked in a red chile-peanut salsa macha and served with plantain rice and it was RIDICULOUSLY amazing! This one definitely has a kick so steer clear if you don’t like spicy food- Chef Rick Bayless has said it’s like a 6/10 spice-wise and I would agree with that.

Jake had the Carne Asada & Mojo-Grilled Florida Shrimp, also from the new menu and his was delicious as well. We both preferred my shrimp to the ones that came with his meal but the mojo-grilled shrimp were good, too, and the carne asada was cooked perfectly!

Boys with their dinner

Nick went out on a limb and ordered the Oaxacan Mole Chicken at the recommendation of our server (who was fantastic, by the way!). He’s never had mole but couldn’t get enough and polished off the whole thing- I was shocked because it’s HUGE– definitely splittable for most! Ben ordered the Red Chile Chicken Enchiladas and was equally pleased with his choice. In fact, I’d recommend the enchiladas if you’re unsure of some of the more unusual/authentic choices as they really were tasty.

Raspberry Habanero Cake

We absolutely LOVED the Coconut Lime Cuatro Leches the last time we visited (slice in the back) but wanting to try something new, we also ordered the Raspberry-Habanero Cake from the new “Taste of Baja” menu (slice in the front). With lime chantilly cream, minty raspberry salsa, and candied habanero lime, it was a sweet and spicy combination and oh, so delicious!

Ready for dessert

We had such a nice, relaxing dinner at Frontera Cocina with these five sweethearts! I love sitting in the back of the restaurant, by the bar, because the walls are predominantly windows and you have a great view of Disney Springs.

Little cake thief- she loves the cuatro de leche from Frontera Cocina!

She ADORED the Coconut Lime Cuatro Leches and wanted the whole piece to herself! I honestly think she would have polished off the entire slice if we would have let her– but everyone else loved it, too!

We absolutely loved our dinner at Frontera Cocina from start to finish. The service, the food, and the atmosphere were all spectacular and it truly is one of our favorite places to eat at Disney Springs!

Top Snacks at Walt Disney World

There are SO MANY amazing snacks at Walt Disney World and you could literally spend all day, every day of your trip snacking through the parks.  With tons of snack options to choose from, and some even developing cult followings, it was difficult to narrow down our top Disney snacks to just one or two per park.  We’ll have another post coming out soon with more of our favorites in each park, but for the purpose of this comprehensive look at Walt Disney World, we went with a max of two in each location giving us 11 of our favorite snacks throughout Walt Disney World.

In order to keep costs down and not fill up on sugary drinks (so we can eat more snacks, obviously!) we bring these filtering water bottles. Florida water can taste a little “different” and these water bottles do a great job minimizing the weird taste, ensuring that we stay hydrated in the Florida heat.

Best Disney Snacks Pin

Magic Kingdom Snacks

Top disney snacks buffalo chicken tots

While not technically a “snack” and not eligible as a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan, the Loaded Buffalo Chicken Tots from The Friar’s Nook are definitely worth a stop. We included them as a snack because even though they’re quite filling, they’re easily splittable for an afternoon snack and at $9.49, splitting an order puts it firmly in “snack” pricing territory. The crispy tots are topped with buffalo chicken, blue cheese dressing and celery, making a spicy and delicious snack.

Top disney snacks cheshire cat tail

The Cheshire Cat Tail from the Cheshire Café is a more traditional snack, and eligible as a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan. Located near the Mad Tea Party, Cheshire Café is a small location with a walk-up window and a very limited menu. Really, the only reason I can see stopping there is to get a Cheshire Cat Tail, and you ABSOLUTELY should stop! It’s a braided pastry with chocolate filling, pink and purple frosting drizzle, and chocolate chips.  While it sounds totally basic, it’s really good. Like, realllllllly good!  And at only $5.85, it’s another one of our favorite Disney snacks whether you’re on the dining plan or not.

EPCOT Snacks

Top disney snacks schoolbread

The Schoolbread at Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe is one of our top picks in the World Showcase.  We LOVE EPCOT dining options and snacking around the “World” is one of our favorite activities, but even if we don’t have time for a full World Showcase loop, we always make sure to stop in Norway for Schoolbread.  At first glance, it’s just a toasted coconut covered roll, but this sweetbread pastry is filled with custard making it a sweet treat that’s not-too-sweet and Disney Dining Plan snack credit eligible.

Best disney snacks kaki gori

Head to Kabuki Cafe in the Japan Pavillion for a great treat to beat the heat- Kakigori! This Japanese shaved ice can be topped with strawberry, melon, cherry, tangerine, blue raspberry or a rainbow of any three fruit syrups.  This giant cup of shave ice is only $4 (and DDP snack credit eligible) but you should totally spring for the sweet milk topping for an extra buck.

Animal Kingdom Snacks

Best Disney snacks night blossom

The Night Blossom from Pongu Pongu in Pandora is another great treat to beat the heat! We’ve always found Animal Kingdom to be the hottest park (least shade, lots of concrete, etc) so we’re always looking for something cold and refreshing.  Enter the Night Blossom- it’s a frozen limeade with apple and desert pear flavors topped with passion fruit boba balls (you can order with or without the boba balls).  This frozen, fruity concoction is $5.99 and counts as a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan.

Top Disney snacks animal kingdom fries

For a more savory snack, we love Mr. Kamal’s Seasoned Fries from Mr. Kamal’s in Asia.  The crispy fries are topped with tzatziki salad and drizzled with sriracha ketchup (you can get extra ketchup, too!) and are totally addictive.  They’re $5.99 and count as one snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan, too.  There are several shady tables near Mr. Kamal’s but watch out for the birds– they love the fries, too!

Hollywood Studios Snacks

Top disney snacks mickey ice cream bars

So I have to be honest here, we haven’t spent much time in Hollywood Studios lately due to all of the construction so I’m not really up-to-date on the latest snacks there (though I’ve heard great things about Woody’s Lunchbox!). DHS has been a half-day park for our family, or we skip it altogether, but I’m assuming that will change once Star Wars Land is open.  So for now, our go-to DHS snack is a Mickey Ice Cream Bar– they’re $5.75 or one snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan.

Disney Resorts Snacks

Best Disney snacks dole whip

Even though you can get a Dole Whip Float in the Magic Kingdom, we ALWAYS get it from the Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort (mainly so that we can enjoy other snacks in the park!). The dole whip float- pineapple and vanilla soft serve topped with pineapple juice- is a great treat to enjoy while relaxing at the Polynesian. We often stop by on an off-day from the parks just to get a dole whip and ride the monorail for some resort hopping fun.

Top Disney snacks monorail cupcake

Another favorite of ours, the Oreo Monorail Cupcake, can be found at the Contempo Café in Disney’s Contemporary Resort.  Gourmet cupcakes are a huge thing at Disney Parks right now, and this is one of our favorites because of the white chocolate monorail.  It’s a basic vanilla cupcake filled with cookies and cream frosting and topped with more of the same, but the white chocolate monorail really puts it over the top.  This sweet treat is one snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan or $5.99.

Disney Springs Snacks

Best Disney snacks earthquake at Ghirardelli

Ok, so this one isn’t technically a snack, but when you’re splitting it as a family of 7, it feels like a one and it’s a favorite for our crew. The Earthquake at Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop in The Marketplace has 8 scoops of ice cream (you can choose the flavors), eight toppings, bananas, whipped cream, cherries, and sprinkles.  It’s $42.95 but it easily feeds 6-8 people making the price per person much closer to that of a snack.  And, they offer discounts for Annual Passholders, DVC Members and military so for our family, it’s actually cheaper than everyone getting their own snack elsewhere. . . and way more fun!

Top disney snacks joffreys coffee

Last, but certainly not least, are the drinks with Latte Art from Tea Traders Café at The Landing.  You pick any of their delicious lattes, mochas, or tea lattes, and for 50¢ extra, you can get it topped with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy or Pluto. It’s a fun little add-on to your afternoon pick-me-up and it makes for a great photo op!

Thanks so much for following along on our favorite snacks throughout Walt Disney World!  There are so many to choose from and new ones coming out every week it seems, so there’s always something new to try.

What’s your fave WDW snack??
