Magic Kingdom is by far the most iconic Disney park. Sure you can argue that Disneyland is more iconic and prestigious, but let’s be real, more people come to MK so by default, they’re a smidge better.
If there’s one thing that really gets me hyped when visiting Magic Kingdom it has to be snacks.
From Dole Whip and waffle sandwiches to ice cream sundaes and churros, there are so many delicious options that I believe everyone needs to try at least once.
Below, you’ll find 10 of my all time favorite snacks that you can get from Magic Kingdom.
What you won’t find are popcorn, Mickey Pretzels, and Mickey Bars only because you can find those throughout Disney property.
Best Snacks at Magic Kingdom (2023)
Here are my absolute favorite snack picks that you must try the next time you’re at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
1. Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich
I don’t care what anyone says but I’ll take this over a Dole Whip any day.
Hot and fresh waffle, topped with fresh strawberries and banana, and so much gooey chocolate hazelnut spread aka Nutella.
It literally can’t be beat. It’s honestly a solid snack or even sweet lunch. Either way you won’t be disappointed.
Plus, they even have one that’s topped with sweet and spicy chicken and broccoli slaw. It’s great!
You can get this snack from Sleepy Hollow Inn right near Liberty Square.
2. Dole Whip Float
(I know the image is from Pineapple Lanai at the Polynesian, but the float is literally the same lol.)
With the Dole Whip Float, you’ll get a combination of pineapple ice cream and fresh pineapple juice.
I recommend getting your Dole Whip swirled with vanilla ice cream because it helps reduce the intensity of the pineapple overload.
You can get this from Aloha Isle in Adventureland.
3. Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
What I love about this is that you get a deliciously moist pineapple upside-down cake topped with your choice of Dole Whip.
It’s a fantastic snack that’s both filling and refreshing.
Plus, it makes good use of one (1) Disney Dining Plan snack credit (when Dining Plans are available).
You can find this at Aloha Isle in Adventureland.
4. Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake
This is one of the most underrated and forgotten snacks at Disney World, mainly because you have to make a reservation at Liberty Tree Tavern to eat it.
But if you love warm, gooey cakes, then it’s definitely worth it.
With this dessert, you’ll get a warm vanilla cake filled with gooey toffee that’s drizzled with chocolate and caramel and topped with vanilla ice cream.
5. The Plaza Sundae
I dare you to walk down Main Street USA and not immediately turn your head to the right once you smell freshly baked waffle bowls.
I recommend you either try the All American Sundae or the Plaza Sundae (pictured).
And if you love warm peanut butter topping, I recommend you get your sundae smothered in it.
But of course, there’s always hot fudge.
You can get this from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.
6. Cheshire Cat Tail
A new discovery for myself, this Cheshire Cat Tail is essentially an extra long warm chocolate danish twist topped with colorful icing.
You can find this from Cheshire Cafe right by the Teacups.
7. Red Velvet Mickey Cake Pop
Honestly, this is probably the most hidden of all gems on this list.
Super moist red velvet (or chocolate) cake covered in chocolate and finished with two marshmallow Mickey ears.
You can get this from either the Main Street Confectionary or Big Top Treats.
8. Cheeseburger Spring Rolls
These are insanely good. Best of all, they always have a rotating flavor alongside the OG cheeseburger flavor such as buffalo chicken, Rueben, and pepperoni pizza.
Get these from the Spring Roll Cart right in front of Adventureland.
9. Warm Giant Cinnamon Roll
The breakfast of champions.
A HUGE, warm cinnamon roll smothered in icing.
It’s not Cinnabon but it’s an acceptable compromise.
You can enjoy this at Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland.
10. Loaded Buffalo Tater Tots
Sure, these can be a meal, but I find theme to be an excellent salty snack choice.
With this snack, you’ll get tater tots smothered in hot sauce and buffalo chicken with a little drizzle of ranch and a sprinkle of celery and bleu cheese crumbles.
You can enjoy this at Friar’s Nook in Fantasyland.
11. I Lava You Float
I’m not the biggest fan of Sunshine Tree Terrace mainly because I prefer the treats at Aloha Isle, but the I Lava You Float is an exception.
Fanta Strawberry Soda and Passion Fruit flavor served with Dole Whip Orange and topped with popping candy.
Get this from Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland.
12. Funnel Cake
There’s just something about a freshly made funnel cake that puts a huge smile on my face. Sure you can find these at every other Disney World park except Animal Kingdom but still, there’s just something magical about enjoying a funnel cake with this view.
You can grab this from Sleepy Hollow Inn.
13. Mickey Ear Caramel Apple
For the longest time, I wasn’t a huge fan of caramel apples. But these are by far the only exception. Granny smith apples covered in caramel and chocolate topped with M&M’s makes this one of my favorite snacks to bring home after a long, eventful day at the parks.
You’ll find these at the Confectionary and Big Top Treats.
14. Corn Dog Nuggets
This is by far one of the more popular snack and lunch options at Magic Kingdom. Just be sure to get the cheese dipping sauce with them to take it to the next level.
Grab these at Casey’s Corner.
15. Sweet and Spicy Chicken and Waffle Sandwich
There’s just something about this sandwich that just gets me going. I don’t know if tis the sweet and spicy fried chicken, the cole slaw, or even the freshly made waffles, but it’s just a delicious combination. Sure this is meant to be a full meal, but you’re at Disney World, anything can be a snack.
Get this from Sleepy Hollow.
16. Lefou’s Brew
A frozen apple slushy infused with toasted marshmallow syrup, topped with passion fruit foam. This is basically Disney’s direct attempt to compete with Universal’s Butterbeer. Unfortunately it does fall short in that comparison but it is a pretty unique drink worth trying once.
You’ll find this at Gaston’s Tavern.
Last but not least is the butter popcorn that can be smelled throughout the entire park. I dare you to try to leave Magic Kingdom without getting enticed to grab a box of popcorn for the monorail ride back.
On a side note, you can sometimes find a Maple Popcorn at the Frontierland Popcorn Cart. However, I haven’t seen it in a long while.
18. Churro Ice Cream Sandwich (seasonal)
Sometimes, when you catch it right, you’ll get vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two soft, and sometimes warm cinnamon churros.
Other times the churro is a little hard.
Either way, it’s a pretty tasty snack.
You can get this from Sleepy Hollow Inn.

More Disney Snacks!
And for more Disney Parks snack recommendations, check out my lists below:
Updated less than 3 weeks ago and you’re telling me that some of these snacks make good use for a snack credit. Dining Plans have been suspended since last year.
Sarah, you need to not be a snob. This helped me get the most out of my disney experience. Clearly the person that made this put a lot of time and effort into it.😁
I’m with Sarah. Seems like a great list if you went in 2019. Only 4 of the 1 are currently available in Magic Kingdom and one of those (Cheshire cat tail) isn’t available at the place he mentioned, but is at the Pinocchio village haus. The Dole whip float, toffee cake, and tots are the others you can get.)
*4 of the 10
Plaza Ice Cream hasn’t been open in over a year 🙁
Does the cheeseburger spring roll count as a snack? Love those!
It is a snack credit!
thanks for all tips. Am taking hubby on a 3 or 4 day vacationing a few weeks. We are in our 70’s. We want a stress free time but want to experience sights, music and rides. Do you have “go cart a” available to reduce extensive wakking?
Back in the 80’s I went there frequently. I loved their frozen bananas!
Can you still get the churro ice cream sandwich? This was one of my favorite things several years ago (so yummy!) but it had not been available for some time. I don’t currently see if on the menu.
The very “smart” person who put this list together did not bother to do any research before posting this. Maybe next time the very “smart” person who lazily copied and pasted this list together from other peoples blogs will actually research before posting.
