Disney World has so many great food options. These are my favorite of the best Disney World foods you have to try this year!
With all the food options at Disney World, you could spend your entire vacation just sampling all the wonderful food that Disney World has to offer.
To help you narrow down your options, I’ve highlighted my favorite Disney World eats below.
From make-your-own popcorn to specialty spring rolls, this list has something to delight all the culinary senses.
Best Disney World Foods: Animal Kingdom
1. Satu’li Bowl – Satu’li Canteen, Animal Kingdom
Before we arrived at Animal Kingdom, we heard that Satu’li Canteen had the best food at Walt Disney World. And I have to agree.
Satu’li Canteen is located in the World of Avatar (Pandora) section of Animal Kingdom.
Satu’li Canteen offers something called a Satu’li Bowl. It’s a combination bowl with your choice of a protein, base, and dressing.
I got a combo chicken and beef bowl with noodles and an onion vinaigrette dressing.
For the protein, you can also choose shrimp or tofu. The base options also include rice & black beans, red pepper & sweet potato hash, or salad. And other dressings include black bean vinaigrette or herb dressing.
My Satu’li Bowl was so, so good. This place could easily compete with any non-Disney casual food restaurant. It was that good.
Tip: Order ahead using the mobile order option on the Disney Experience app. This will help you avoid waiting in line. The wait for food can be long here!
Best Disney World Foods: Hollywood Studios
2. Totchos – Woody’s Lunch Box, Hollywood Studios
When you get to Hollywood Studios, I recommend that the very first thing you do is go to Woody’s Lunch Box and order Totchos.
Tochos are tater tot bowls that include potato barrels (tater tots), chili, corn chips, and cheese. If you get to the park before 10:30am, you can order a breakfast version with eggs.
This dish is amazing. And incredibly filling. I found it was enough food to keep my energy levels up for many hours walking around the park.
3. Outpost Popcorn Mix – Kat Saka’s Kettle, Hollywood Studios
Next on our list of food to try at Disney World is Outpost Popcorn Mix!
You can find this popcorn in the Star War’s Galaxy Edge portion of Hollywood Studios.
I almost didn’t try this popcorn because of all the mixed reviews I had read. Some people loved it. Some people hated it.
But…I think everyone should try it at least once.
It’s a combination of purple and red popcorn. The purple popcorn tastes like Fruity Pebbles. The red popcorn has a lime taste with a slightly spicy finish.
I found it interesting and I’m glad I tried it. But I will probably will go for the more conventional popcorn (butter with salt) at Kat Saka’s Kettle in the future.
4. Cold Brew Black Caf – Kat Saka’s Kettle, Hollywood Studios
Kat Saka’s Kettle also offers some coffee beverages to help you cool down in the humid Florida heat. There’s a non-alcoholic cold brew and a spiked cold brew.
Both beverages have a base of Joffrey’s cold brew and cream. Plus a delicious topping of Cocoa Puffs. The Cocoa Puffs alone make this drink worth trying.
The spiked cold brew adds a chocolate liqueur to the drink.
I tried the non-alcoholic version and found it refreshing. The Cocoa Puffs were definitely the winner of the drink.
The drink needed a little something extra – and that extra was probably the chocolate liqueur that I skipped. So next time, I’ll be adding that chocolate liqueur!
Best Disney World Foods: Magic Kingdom
5. Make-Your-Own Popcorn – Main Street Confectionary, Magic Kingdom
Make-your-own-popcorn is a fantastic idea that every popcorn store should implement immediately!
To find the make-your-own-popcorn at Disney World, head to the Main Street Confectionary in Magic Kingdom.
The popcorn section is located in the very back of the store.
There, you choose your popcorn base (butter, cheddar, and/or caramel), your chocolate drizzle (milk, dark, and/or white), and your candy toppings (like M&Ms, Snickers, Twix, & lots more).
I liked this so much that I got it twice. The first time, I got butter popcorn, milk chocolate drizzle, regular M&Ms, and Snickers. The second time, I got butter popcorn, dark chocolate drizzle, regular M&Ms, and Twix. The first version was the winner for me!
I highly recommend checking this place out while in Magic Kingdom.
6. Cheeseburger Spring Rolls – Spring Roll Cart, Magic Kingdom
A cheeseburger spring roll doesn’t immediately call out to me as “best food ever” – but believe me, it is.
You’ll quickly be adding this item to your list of one of the best things you’ve ever tasted.
These spring rolls can be found in the spring roll cart at Magic Kingdom, right on the edge of Adventureland.
The cheeseburger spring roll tasted like an animal-style In-N-Out Burger. Ground beef, gooey cheese, and pickle relish. Delicious!
The spring roll flavors rotate, so I’ll be back to taste more!
7. Dole Whip – Aloha Isle Refreshments, Magic Kingdom
While you can get Dole Whip at several places at Disney World, I got mine at Aloha Isle Refreshments in Magic Kingdom.
Dole Whip is pineapple-flavored soft-serve. You can get it just as soft-serve alone. I added coconut ice cream and pineapple juice to mine. So, so good.
It’s an incredibly refreshing treat on a hot Florida day.
Best Disney World Foods: Epcot
8. Caramel & Gingerbread Cookie – Karamell-Küche, Epcot
Everyone in my group tried the caramel & gingerbread cookie from Karamell-Küche in the Germany village of Epcot.
And everyone in my group agreed it was once of the best desserts that they had ever tasted.
It’s two of the best gingerbread cookies you’ve ever had. Sandwiched around a delicious frosting.
It’s super sweet, so you likely only need one cookie for several people. Unbelievably good.
9. Frozen Viking Coffee – Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe, Epcot
While you’re passing through the Norway village of Epcot, you’ll see everyone with these cups filled with a chocolate drink.
That drink is Frozen Viking Coffee from the Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe.
The typical version of the drink is alcoholic. If you’d like to skip the alcohol, you’ll need to ask for the non-alcoholic version.
The drink is a creamy, chocolatey delight with crunchy chocolate crumbles on top. 10/10 – amazing drink.
10. Frozen Mint Tea – Oasis Sweets & Sips, Epcot
I was in Morocco a few months ago and loved their mint tea.
So when I saw “frozen mint tea” as a beverage at Oasis Sweets & Sips in the Moroccan village of Epcot, I knew I had to try it.
It was so good! Very similar to the sweet, mint tea that you get in Morocco.
The Disney World version is frozen, which is an interesting take on the drink. It’s perfect for the Florida weather.
11. Poutine – Refreshment Port, Epcot
French fries, beef gravy, and cheese curds are always going to be a “yes” for me.
The Refreshment Port in the Canada village of Epcot delivers an exceptional version of the dish.
This was one of the dishes where my group all ordered their own because we knew we weren’t going to be able to share! And we finished every last bite.
Best Disney World Foods: Polynesian Village Resort
12. ‘Ohana All-You-Care-to-Enjoy – Polynesian Village Resort
The Polynesian Village Resort has an amazing restaurant named ‘Ohana.
There, you can partake in an “all-you-care-to-enjoy” meal. There are meat and vegetarian options, so there’s something for everyone.
I loved the savory noodles and chimichurri grilled chicken.
Since it’s an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal, come hungry and order second (or third!) helpings of your favorite dishes.
13. ‘Ohana Bread Pudding – Polynesian Village Resort
The ‘Ohana bread pudding is part of the ‘Ohana all-you-care-to-enjoy meal.
But it was so good that it deserves its own spot on the list.
The bread pudding is topped with pineapple bits, vanilla ice cream, and the best ever – caramel sauce.
Even after a big meal, we made sure to save room for this delicious dessert.
Best Things to Eat at Disney World
14. Strawberry Dipped Mocha Latte – Joffrey’s, Disney World
Joffrey’s coffee stands are located throughout the Disney World parks.
You’ll find that the stands often have unique drinks for that particular park or have seasonal specialities.
One of the seasonal specialities is a strawberry dipped mocha latte.
I’m normally not a strawberry beverage fan, but the strawberry was a perfect balance to lighten the sweetness of the mocha in this drink.
I’m going to keep asking for this drink, long after it’s off the seasonal menu!
15. Mickey Pretzel – Snack Carts, Disney World
The last item on our list of the best Disney World foods is the Mickey Mouse pretzel!
You can find these pretzels at food cart stands throughout the Disney World parks.
This is not your standard mall pretzel! It’s so much better than any other soft pretzel I’ve ever had. You have to try it! Plus, I love the attention to detail with the Mickey shape.
And there you have it!
There are so many fantastic places to eat at Disney World. I hope this list helps you to enjoy the best Disney World foods that the parks have to offer!
