Top Five Sugary Treats at Walt Disney World

Top 5 Snacks at Walt Disney World

Sure, you’ll find the typical sugary goodness of cotton candy, popcorn and those infamous Mickey ice-cream bars, but if you want something a little different at Walt Disney World, try one of these five sugary good favorites of DisneyDaybyDay!

 #5- Sweet Pretzel with Almonds; Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe at Norway Pavilion in Epcot; about $5

Kringla Sweet Pretzel If you’re excepting your typical pretzel, think again. It might be pretzel-like in shape but this is more of a sugary pastry. This pretzel contain raisins, icing and flakes of almonds making this one tasty and filling treat.

#4- Caramel Corn; Karamell-Küche at the German Pavilion in Epcot; about $3-$6

Caramel Corn Epcot Germany When you dip into your first bag of this caramel corn, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven. Made with melted Werthers caramel, it’s warm and buttery, practically melting in your mouth. Our only complaint – If you don’t get a fresh bag, it’s not nearly as good.

#3-Butterfinger Cupcake; Starring Rolls Café in Hollywood Studios; about $5

Butterfinger Cupcake We at DisneyDaybyDay love butterfingers, so when we heard about this cupcake, we had to try it! Believe us, it doesn’t disappoint!  The cupcake is not only topped with buttercream frosting and crumbled butterfinger, but it is filled with chocolate fudge frosting in the center.  All this sugary goodness makes it an easy addition to our list.

#2-Citrus Swirl; The Sunshine Tree Terrace in Magic Kingdom; about $4

Citrus Swirl A lot of people love the dole whips, but our favorite is the Citrus swirl at Magic Kingdom. The Citrus Swirl contains vanilla ice cream mixed with frozen orange juice and is perfect for a hot summer day.


#1-Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich; Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom; about $7

Nutella and fresh fruit waffle sandwich The Nutella fruit waffle is more of a meal than a treat. This huge waffle is folded in half and stuffed with fresh fruit and covered with a chocolaty Nutella spread. This treat can definitely feed two. And hey, it’s got fruit, so it’s good for you…right?


As always these are only DisneyDaybyDay’s opinions. If you would choose another sugary treat as your favorite, we’d love to hear about it in the comments section!

    Darn- why didn’t I try every Disney sweet before the diabetes kicked in? I will have to live vicariously through lists such as yours Sean. (But boy, one bite of a Butterfinger Cupcake might not kill me!!)
