When it comes to snacking at Walt Disney World, five is the magic number. That’s because $5 is the average value of a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan — so experts (like us!) recommend saving your snack credit for bigger ticket items so you can really max out your credits.
But with Disney Dining Plans being suspended (no return date has yet been announced), more guests will be paying out of pocket for their bites, so we’re bringing you some of the priciest snacks at Walt Disney World so you can plan your snack budget accordingly. (We’ve all got a snack budget, right?)
Poutine is a classic Canadian snack, featuring thick brown gravy and tasty cheese curds atop golden fries. This savory snack comes in at $7.50 (or a DDP credit, when available), making them one of the best DDP values and a hefty snack (for two or more, if you want to share!).
Beef Brisket Poutine at Refreshment Port in EPCOT
Still at Refreshment Port, the more expensive $9.50 poutine (not DDP-eligible) comes with beef brisket, beer cheese sauce, and crispy onions. This is another snack that doubles as a meal and is perfect for sharing. Meat and fries are just a magical combination.
Normally $7, this tasty treat combines the sticky sweetness of a Pineapple Upside Down Cake with the classic coolness of a Dole Whip. I guess you could say it’s served… aloha mode. (Get it? Like a la… eh, they can’t all be winners.) Still, you can be a winner if you order this snack at the Magic Kingdom!
If you’re looking for a full meal in the form of a snack, this shareable snack from Animal Kingdom is loaded with barbecue flavor and melty cheese. Normally coming in at $7.29, this is a great deal for anyone looking to save their meal credits for a specialty meal or feed their whole crew for the purchase of a snack.
Specialty Funnel Cake at Epic Eats in Disney’s Hollywood Studios
One of the more expensive snacks at the Park, and definitely one of the most expensive you can get on the DDP, this pair of decadent funnel cakes go for about $8.50 each, coming in both strawberry and cookies and cream flavors.
While not exclusive to Kusafiri anymore, this enormous Mickey-shaped cinnamon roll is the size of your head and normally comes in at a whopping $7.49. (You’ll often find this in Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Bakery, too!)
Plaza Ice Cream offers the classic brownie or apple blossom treats as decadent sundaes for about $7.49. Brownies and Apple Pie a la mode? Sign me up.
Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich at Plaza Ice Cream
While we’re at Plaza, this $6.99 treat lets you make a DIY Ice Cream Sandwich. Just pick your favorite flavor, and they’ll sandwich them between two fresh chocolate chip cookies. Perfect if you don’t want to commit to the whole fork and spoon thing. (Do grab a small stack of napkins, though — trust us!)
Normally $6.99, the crepes here are an excellent morning treat… or evening treat. Is there ever a bad time for crepes? Strawberries with a touch of brandy? Marshmallows and chocolate? Traditional crepes are also DDP-eligible here (though the newer, popular Bubble Waffles aren’t, usually).
Bubble Waffles at Aristocrepes in Disney Springs
Speaking of which… at $8.99, these bubble waffles are topped with whipped cream, candy pearls, and a selection of chocolate-y or fruity toppings. This treat is totally worth the splurge.
If you’ve got a big group and are looking for a snack that could easily fill in for a meal, this is one of our top choices. Featuring a full charcuterie board worth of meat and cheese, the enormous pretzel is just a (really delicious, carbo-loaded) bonus. I’ve personally shared one of these with three hungry adults, and we still had bits left over. At $22.00, it’s pricey but surprisingly affordable for groups.
Speaking of charcuterie boards, Oga’s Cantina has this galactic twist on the classic appetizer. While not as elaborate as the one at Jock Lindsey’s, this is a perfect accompaniment to your Fuzzy Tauntauns. It comes in at $21.
The Kitchen Sink at Beaches and Cream is infamous for being the most enormous ice cream dish at Disney World… but what if you want something a bit more portable? Well, for around $23 dollars, you can get a smaller version of the classic challenge in a souvenir sink. It’s nearly as big as the real thing and just as delicious.
