Let’s Look at the BEST Snacks of the Magic Kingdom, Including Options for Food Allergies!
Food is a big part of vacation, and that includes SNACKS! Disney has some of the best snacks in the travel world, and some of them have incredible cult followings. Let’s take a deep dive into the best snacks of the Magic Kingdom! And, as I am someone that lives with food allergies, I have included many food allergy options!
10. Popcorn – DAIRY FREE/GLUTEN FREE
While popcorn is not necessarily a gourmet treat (though that is certainly an option at places like The Confectionary or Kat Saka’s Kettle), might be the most AFFORDABLE snack in the whole of Walt Disney World. You can buy the basic bucket for $13, then you can refill it every time you want more for $2.25. Popcorn is all over the place, and it is gluten free AND dairy free. The “butter” flavoring comes from canola. Of course, you should always check the ingredients binder to confirm, as suppliers these days are constantly changing.
9. Mickey Ice Cream Bar – GLUTEN FREE/PEANUT FREE
Everything tastes better when it’s Mickey-shaped, and you cannot go wrong with this iconic snack! Mickey Ice Cream Bars are gluten free and peanut free! These vanilla bars with a thick chocolate shell are delicious treats, but you’d better eat it quickly on a super hot Florida day, or else you may end up wearing it!
8. Cheshire Cat Tail – Cheshire Cafe, Fantasyland
This delicious pastry is a great way to start your day, or for a snack at any time! This twisted pastry is stuffed with chocolate chips and smothered in pink and purple stripes, resembling MY favorite Disney Cat!
7. Mickey Pretzel – DAIRY FREE/PEANUT FREE
Yes, Mickey Pretzels are dairy free, just don’t eat the cheese! And peanut free, too! Again, you’ll want to verify in the ingredients binder, but I think you should be good to go! The best part of these Mickey pretzels is that they’re HUGE, so you can either share them, or consider them a light lunch!
6. Loaded Buffalo Chicken Tots – The Friar’s Nook, Fantasyland – GLUTEN FREE
Listen, man, this is just a tasty dish! Buffalo Chicken? On tater tots? LOADED? Yes, please. And they are TECHNICALLY gluten free, but if cross contamination is an issue, this might not be for you. In the past, there has been a dedicated fryer, but you may want to check with a chef or cast member to verify!
5. Warm Cinnamon Roll – Gaston’s Tavern, Fantasyland
In true Gaston Fashion, this is a MASSIVE cinnamon roll! Perfect for breakfast! Wash it down with a LeFou’s Brew, too!
4. Cheeseburger Spring Rolls – Spring Roll Cart, Adventureland
Cheeseburger Spring Rolls are one of the unique treats at Walt Disney World that you simply MUST try. Truly one of the best snacks of the Magic Kingdom!
3. Dole Whip – Aloha Isle, Adventureland (and a whole bunch of other places and flavors) – VEGAN/GLUTEN FREE/DAIRY FREE/PEANUT FREE
Few treats are as well known as a Dole Whip at Disney, and they now come in a multitude of flavors and a ton of locations around Disney World. BUT the ORIGINAL is located at the Aloha Isle: Pineapple Dole Whip. The best part of the Dole Whip is that almost everyone can safely eat them! They are Vegan, gluten free, peanut free, and MOST flavors are dairy free. The coconut and vanilla flavors are not, but the other flavors are, indeed, dairy free. Again, check the ingredients binders to be sure, but this is a food allergy diners miracle!
2. Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich – Sleepy Hollow, Liberty Square
The Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich from Sleepy Hollow is easily the NEW most popular snack. A HUGE waffle, absolutely smothered in nutella, and topped with strawberries, blueberries, and bananas. It’s not MY number one, obviously, because I cannot eat it. There are no allergy accommodations at Sleepy Hollow, so you may want to just keep walking.
1. I Lava You Float – Sunshine Tree Terrace, Adventureland – GLUTEN FREE/DAIRY FREE/PEANUT FREE
By and large, the BEST snack in the entirety of the Magic Kingdom is the I Lava You Float. No, really, hear me out. Orange Dole Whip, Strawberry Fanta, Passion Fruit Syrup, and topped off with Pop Rocks. It is so tasty and so refreshing. You will not be disappointed! AND, since it’s Dole Whip, it is Vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and peanut free.
