The “happiest place on earth” is a wonderful destination for kids and kids-at-heart alike. Anyone who is a regular Disney World goer will tell you that while there are endless food options available at the parks, there are some items that you absolutely must try – at least once. Here are some of the most delicious eats to try while visiting Disney World.
A Dole Whip is a frozen, soft-serve pineapple dessert that is both sweet and tart and can be enjoyed by many park guests as it is both gluten and dairy free. You can buy it at the Tiki Juice Bar in Adventureland as well as at the Coffee House in Disneyland Hotel. You can buy it in a cup and also add it to a float with pineapple juice.
Churros are a beloved treat everywhere, but the ones at Disney World are quite delightful. The reason is that they come in limited-edition and themed flavors like golden lemon churros for Pirates of the Caribbean and blue and red lightsaber churros for Star Wars.
Nothing says Disney World quite like Mickey Mouse, right? This delicious vanilla ice cream is enrobed in delicious chocolatey coating and is in the shape of everyone’s favorite mouse. You can find it at any ice cream cart and freezer at the parks. You get bonus points if you take a picture of it in front of the iconic castle.
Monte Cristo Sandwich
You can find the Monte Cristo sandwich at Blue Bayou Restaurant and Cafe Orleans. It is a ham, turkey, and Swiss cheese sandwich that is then battered, deep fried, and served with a berry sauce. It is the most incredible thing you can get at the park. Vegetarian? Don’t worry – you can order the sandwich sans meat and with two more types of cheese instead.
Speaking of New Orleans and Mickey Mouse, you absolutely must try the Mickey Beignets at Cafe Orleans. These soft and pillowy fried doughnuts are dusted with powdered sugar and served with dipping sauces. You can also find them a the Mint Julep Bar.
