The Walt Disney World Resort theme parks are full of delicious snacks and dining options, but it’s not always possible to make it to the theme parks. You may not have a theme park ticket, may be due for an Annual Pass renewal, or may just want to have a resort day.
Keep reading to learn about the eight best snacks exclusive to the Walt Disney World Resort hotels!
Beignets at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter
If there’s one Walt Disney World Resort hotel exclusive snack that you need to try, it’s a Mickey-Shaped Beignet at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter.
You can find these warm, pillowy clouds of fried dough and powdered sugar in orders of three or six at Scat Cat’s Club Café, right next door to the Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory.
If you want to take your beignets to another level, you can add your choice of salted caramel, strawberry, or chicory chocolate ganache dipping sauces to your order.
Baton Rouge Beignets (“boozy beignets” that come with your choice of Bailey’s, Kahlua, or RumChata liquors), Specialty Beignets (Raspberry, Cinnamon-Sugar, and Chocolate), and Mickey-Shaped Beignet Sundaes are also exclusive to this Resort hotel and available for purchase.
‘Ohana Bread Pudding at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
‘Ohana’s classic Bread Pudding a la modé is one of the best desserts at Walt Disney World Resort!
This mouth-watering dessert features a rich bread pudding topped with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream, warm caramel, and bananas. Fortunately, even if you don’t have an Advance Dining Reservation for dinner at ‘Ohana, you can still try this yummy treat!
Next door to ‘Ohana is Tambu Lounge, a full-service bar which serves, you guessed it, the ‘Ohana Bread Pudding a la mode! You won’t find this “secret” item printed on Tambu Lounge’s menu. However, it is available for purchase as a single serving after 4:00 p.m., making the perfect afternoon “pick me up” before a beautiful stroll through Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.
Tie-Dye Cheesecake at Disney’s Pop Century Resort
It is exclusive to Disney’s Pop Century Resort and has been around for at least a decade. You can find it at Everything POP Shopping and Dining, the Resort hotel’s Quick Service dining establishment.
The Tie-Dye Cheesecake features an airy, colorful cheesecake atop a red velvet cake “crust.” Whoever dreamed up this fantastic crust deserves a prize, as it is absolutely delicious! The cheesecake comes conveniently packaged in a small, round container, and the portion is “just right” for one person.
This is a relatively simple and straightforward recipe, which packs groovy flavor, fun colors, and a fantastic price-point. We can’t get enough of this treat!
Zebra Domes at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort
The delicious little morsels of Disney goodness are made with a thin white cake base, Amarula Cream Liqueur mousse, white chocolate ganache, milk chocolate sprinkles, and a dark chocolate ganache drizzle.
Zebra Domes became famous as part of Boma’s buffet dessert table. In fact, they became so popular that you can now purchase them “to go” in boxes of four at The Mara at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and Johari Treasures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas — Kidani Village. You no longer need a reservation at Boma to enjoy delicious Zebra Domes!
Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread at Disney’s Riviera Resort
Disney’s Riviera Resort is the newest Resort hotel in Walt Disney World Resort, but it quickly became a guest favorite because of its incredible dining options (we’re looking at you, Topolino’s Terrace)!
At the top of our list of Disney’s Riviera Resort snacks is the Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread found at Le Petit Café and Primo Piatto.
The Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread is pretty straightforward. It consists of incredibly moist banana bread, large dark chocolate chunks, and a golden Mickey-embossed chocolate coin. We can’t get enough of the combination of moist banana bread and dark chocolate.
We find the portion to be just right for one person, and at $3.99 apiece, the price is excellent. If you have access to a microwave, pop your banana bread in it for a few seconds to take it up a notch!
Campfire Cupcake at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
One of the most unique cupcakes on Walt Disney World Resort property is located at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort.
The Marshmallow and Chocolate Campfire Cupcake at Roaring Fork is a “must grab” anytime we are on property.
This cupcake can be found at Roaring Fork and features chocolate cake, “dirt” created with cookie crumbles, candy rocks, a marshmallow frosting “campfire,” and a marshmallow frosting filling. It is moist, decadent, and cute!
DOLE Whip with Rum Floater at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Classic DOLE Whip, a dairy-free pineapple soft serve, is one of the most popular snacks in all of Walt Disney World. DOLE Whip is refreshing, light, and dairy-free, which makes it an ideal snack to enjoy on hot Florida days.
Fortunately for fans of this frozen treat, DOLE Whip can be found outside of the Walt Disney World theme parks at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort since 2014.
Pineapple Lanai, in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, has been serving Pineapple, Vanilla, and Swirl DOLE Whip as well as DOLE Whip floats and cones for 5+ glorious years now.
However, it’s the DOLE Whip with Rum Floater that is exclusive to Pineapple Lanai and a “must-try” for fans of DOLE Whip and Rum. This dish will transport you to a tropical paradise with its combination of Pineapple DOLE Whip and Parrot Bay Coconut Rum — a match made in Disney snack heaven!
No Way Jose at Disney’s Beach Club Resort
However, it’s the No Way Jose sundae that always keeps us coming back for more.
This indulgent treat is a peanut butter and hot fudge delight featuring chocolate and vanilla ice cream, peanut butter, hot fudge, chocolate morsels, whipped cream, and a cherry.
