Destination Disney - 5 Favorite Snacks

Last week we discussed our favorite restaurants in Disney World, this week is all about those snacks we use to hold us over until we get to those fancy restaurants.  From the amusement park classic to special treats specific to The World, all are yummy and I couldn't think of a better way to "ruin" my dinner.

Let's eat!
 5.  Popcorn

I'm not sure why, but as soon I step foot into Frontierland in the Magic Kingdom, I need popcorn!  Those classic vendor carts just start screaming my name.  The delicious smell of buttery, salty goodness whisks me right off my feet. A small box would probably do, but I always break down and buy the big souvenir bucket.  Before the day's out, it's usually well polished off.  Mmmm...
4.  Cookies from Goofy's Candy Co.

Back in January of 2005, I visited Goofy's Candy Co. in Downtown Disney and fell in love... with a baked good.  Mine had chocolate and peanut butter chips, and I swear, some were little Mickey shaped chips.  I haven't seen those adorable chips since but I'm still loving those crispy delicious cookies.

3.  Mickey Ears Ice Cream Bar

One cannot visit Disney World without enjoying one of these bad boys!  A hot Orlando day + crispy coated vanilla ice cream shaped like our iconic Mickey = *sigh*.  Need I say more?

 2.  Blueberry Muffins

I'm pretty sure all the resorts have the same blueberry muffins, but I remember one particular one at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort.  I ate one every-single-morning.  Biggest, most delicious blueberry muffin I've ever eaten.

1.  Birthday Cupcakes

Nothing tastes sweeter than celebrating a birthday (or any other special occasion) at Walt Disney World!  Well, the special treats you get come in a close second.  They're touching and tasty all at the same time.  It's almost heartbreaking to eat that chocolate Mickey disk on top, but I did it.

  1. Great snack list. That cookie looks great! We usually visit Goofy's Candy Company to use up our credits on things we can take home - but we might have to indulge in something to eat too!

  2. Love Mickey Bars! We got to Goofy's Candy Co. almost every trip. Might need to try those cookies!

  3. Great list! We always have to get popcorn before a parade. There is just something about Disney popcorn. :)
