Food News In and Around Walt Disney World

Food at Disney World is an attraction in and of itself for many guests; here are some food news tidbits from around WDW.

First up are snacks. It looks like fans of the sweet cream cheese-filled pretzel can now get their fix at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The pretzels can be found on the Streets of America at the Pretzel Garden. Next, guests can use a Disney Dining Plan snack credit (or pay $3.19) to grab a Citrus Swirl. This sweet twist of vanilla soft-serve ice cream and frozen orange juice can be found in the Magic Kigndom's Sunshine Tree Terrace.

Spiced Bacon Popcorn Crunch At Fort Wilderness

I love Popcorn! And March 12th, 2015 is National Popcorn Day, so why not celebrate with a look at one of our favorite Disney Popcorn Treats. Located at an unassuming little cart across the path from Pioneer Hall in Disney's Ft. Wilderness Resort, Spiced Bacon Popcorn Crunch caught my eye one evening while heading to the Hoop-Dee-Doo. With a good half hour before the show, I figured a little appetizer could hold us over to until the show.

Left-over Snack Credits Are Great For Snacky Souvenirs

I love the Deluxe Disney Plan; however frequently on the last day of my Walt Disney World vacations I find myself standing in the hotel lobby wondering what to do with a handful of leftover snack credits. This dilemma has given way to one of my family's Disney traditions, the snack haul. Unwilling to let those extra credits go to waste I head to the hotel gift shop just before I have to hop on the Magical Express and spend them on delicious pre-packaged snacks for the folks back home.

Bringing Food into Walt Disney World Theme Parks

Even if you aren't traveling to the Walt Disney World theme parks with a baby who needs baby food, you might consider bringing your own food into the parks.

This decision might be due to the fact that you want to save money or snack credits or maybe someone in your traveling party has food allergies and they need their own food. Or maybe you don't want to spend the money on bottle water.

No matter the reason, guests often wonder if bringing food into the Disney World theme parks is allowed and the simple answer is yes.

Fabulous Spots To Snack in Epcot

Walt Disney World's Epcot Theme Park is know far and wide for its stellar food and beverage choices. With dozens of snacking and dining locations that represent a board variety of world flavors one could easily make the argument that this Park runs on food. Whenever my family heads to Epcot, we don't often make reservations, instead we celebrate a tradition of simply snacking our way through the Park. Everyone has their own favorite stops, but I thought I would share my three favorites with you.

Pre-Packaged Holiday Treats at Walt Disney World

We've covered many delicious treats for on-site snacking all over Walt Disney World, but some of my favorite souvenirs to bring home for friends and family are the wide variety of pre-packaged and take-home treats and sweets. These delicious gifts become even more fun when the holidays come around and the packaging dons festive colors and a wintery theme.

Fun and Festive Holiday Cupcakes At Walt Disney World

I love cupcakes! And the Walt Disney World Resort has some of the most magnificent ones that I have ever tasted; like the Butterfinger Cupcake and the King Cupcake. You can even find specialty cupcakes at restaurants and bakeries all over property, and during the winter season some of them even take on a magical holiday flair.

Tasty Hand Scooped Ice Cream at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

On hot Florida day (because there's bound to be a few of those in September) there's one sweet treat that just about everyone has on his or her mind, I'm talking about Ice Cream. And sitting in the shadow of the Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios is a little shop that specializes it in delicious, hand scooped ice cream.

Explore Days Gone By On Tom Sawyer Island

Sitting across the Rivers of America lies what could be one of the most overlooked attractions in the Magic Kingdom, Tom Sawyer Island. It opened in 1973 and has stood the test of time. To get there, guests must take one of four a jaunty rafts named Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher, Injun Joe, or Huck Finn. They run from a dock nestled on the riverbank in Frontierland across to the island where on Tom's Landing the ageless adventure begins.

Carrot Cake Cookies at the Writer's Stop

My hands down favorite spot to grab a snack at Disney's Hollywood Studios is the Writer's Stop. It's a charming little bookstore and cafe just around the corner between the Streets of America and the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater. I'm sure it must get busy in there, but whenever I stop in it has been fairly empty and the perfect spot to grab a seat while deciding what's next in your touring strategy.
