Walt Disney World snacks are more than just Mickey Pretzels, Dole Whips, Mickey Ice Cream Bars and popcorn. Did you know that the Walt Disney World Parks are filled with both sweet and savory “snacks” that are perfect to share with your family? Some even could be considered a small meal and are budget friendly.
Today, I have put together a list of the best wallet friendly snacks at Walt Disney World for you!

Sweet Snacks at Disney World Parks
Magic Kingdom – Fruit Waffles, Caramel Apples, Peter Pan Float, Cinnamon Rolls
Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich – Head to Sleep Hollow in Liberty Square to try this warm waffle is topped with chocolate hazelnut spread and fresh fruit. They are so filling, you can easily share this with at least one other person in your family! They are served with strawberries and bananas on top. Read Sleepy Hollow reviews here.
Caramel Apples – You can find these shareable sweet treats at the Main Street Confectionery in the Main Street USA area at Magic Kingdom. There is a whole case full of these beautifully decorated apples. Disney will often decorate them based on the season, or sometimes they will reflect favorite characters. They will even slice them and box them for you to take along and share with your family. These apples are GIANT, and can easily be shared. Read Main Street Confectionery reviews here.
Warm Cinnamon Rolls – Make sure to stop at Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland for these rolls that are reminiscent of the Main Street Bakery cinnamon rolls from years ago. While these are giant in size, they are not giant in price at Gaston’s Tavern. They are delicious, and my kids can easily share one between the two of them. Read Gaston’s Tavern reviews here.
Peter Pan Float – My “go to” snack can be found at Storybook Treats – also found in Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom. You need to try it for yourself! It’s a beautiful blend of Dole Whip Lime soft serve and Sprite. So you have the smooth texture of the ice cream with the bubbles of the soda…and it’s AMAZING. I love to get this while waiting in line for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. This one is not shareable in my opinion! Read Storybook Treats reviews here.
Animal Kingdom – Mango Pie
Mini Mango Pie – Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafe in the Asia section of Animal Kingdom has to be one of my favorite places to find refreshing treats on a hot Florida day. The mini mango pie is the perfect size to enjoy when you want an afternoon pick me up or a sweet treat between attractions. The texture is super smooth, and the mango is just the right amount of sweet. Read Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafe reviews here.
Hollywood Studios – Funnel Cake
Funnel Cake with Cookies and Cream and Soft Serve Vanilla Topping – This “epic” snack can be found at Epic Eats – the Indiana Jones-style canteen in the Echo Lake section of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This is a great value for your money because you can share it easily with others! Funnel cakes are very filling, so you could possibly substitute this for your lunch. Read Epic Eats reviews here.
EPCOT – Norwegian Kringla, Caramel Apples
Norwegian Kringla – These pretzel shaped pastries can be topped with as many toppings as you desire including cinnamon, almonds or chocolate! This can be found at Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe in Norway in EPCOT’s World Showcase. The toppings make it perfect, and it’s a great value for your money. Read the Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe reviews here.
While you can find lots of budget friendly sweet treats, did you know there are savory options, too? Of course I have a list of those!
Savory Snacks at Disney World Parks
Magic Kingdom – Buffalo Chicken Tots
Loaded Buffalo Chicken Tots – The Friar’s Nook in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom is home to the famous dish. These could easily be a shareable meal/snack for your family. They are literally loaded with chicken and a buffalo sauce. The price point is about $9, but sharing is easy so that does make them more budget friendly. The addition of the chicken makes them more filling, as well. Read The Friar’s Nook reviews here.
Animal Kingdom – Chicken Dumplings
Chicken Dumplings with Ponzu Sauce – If you’re looking for a light lunch or quick bite, consider ordering the Chicken Dumplings at Mr. Kamal’s in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They are only $5.99, and there are three fried dumplings in a serving. They are filled with a savory chicken and seasoning, and the sauce on the side compliments them really well. Since there are only three, I would not consider them sharable, but they are a very budget friendly option. Read Mr. Kamal’s review here.
EPCOT – Sushi, Kakigori Shaved Ice, Croissants
EPCOT is probably my favorite park to find budget friendly, savory snacks.
Sushi & Kakigori Shaved Ice – Kabuki Cafe in the Japan Pavilion of EPCOT’s World Showcase is the place to go if you are looking for a sushi at a budget friendly price. The Spicy Roll with Tuna, Salmon, Cucumber Mix, and Volcano Sauce is very filling. It is only $5, so you can easily purchase a few to share, or get a combination of a couple rolls for your family. Don’t forget to try the Kakigori shaved ice afterwards for dessert! Read Kabuki Cafe reviews here.
Croissant Jambon Fromage – You can find this “snack” at the Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie in the France Pavilion of EPCOT’s World Showcase. This ham, cheese, and bechamel sauce in a croissant is filling, delicious and can be a light lunch too for just $5. The atmosphere in the France Pavilion is so magical, so make sure you spend time exploring the area. Read Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie reviews here.
Hollywood Studios – Breakfast Bowl
Breakfast Bowl – Start your day at Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land with the Breakfast Bowl. These potato barrels smothered in a Brisket Country Gravy are so filling and tasty. The portion is perfect for two to share. Read Woody’s Lunch Box reviews here.
While it is far easier to find variety in the sweet snack category, there are some great savory options, too. What can you add to this list of budget friendly Disney foods?
