Thanksgiving is for EATING- My Favorite Magic Kingdom Snacks

Thanksgiving is coming up, and on Thanksgiving, we watch parades, give thanks, and EAT FOOD! In honor of this glorious occasion, I am sharing some of my favorite snacks in Magic Kingdom. So if you are one of the many people visiting the parks over the holiday break, check them out and tell me what you think!

Mango Dole Whip
Where to find it: Auntie Gravity’s in Tomorrowland in Magic Kingdom

What it is: A Dole Whip is a soft serve frozen treat. It is dairy free and can be served in a bowl or on a cone. It comes in several flavors: pineapple, orange, mango, lemon, raspberry and lime. Each flavor is not available in every location serving Dole Whips, however. For example, raspberry Dole Whips are only available at Aloha Isle in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom. Also, there are some specialty Dole Whip treats. For the mango flavor, it’s an “Up!” theme cone decorated with balloons. For raspberry, it’s the Hei Hei cone, which is themed for the goofy rooster in Moana.

Why I love it: Dole Whips are the best treat on a hot summer day to cool you down. They are delicious and refreshing. I like mango the most because mango is one of my favorite flavors. It’s nice that the Dole Whip comes in different flavors so you can choose the one that you like most. Beware though…they melt quickly.

Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
Where to find it: Ice cream carts in all over the park

What it is: The Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar is basically a Mickey shaped hunk of chocolate with vanilla ice cream inside. It is on a stick.

Why I love it: This treat is also a great way to cool you down on a hot day. Also, something about the chocolate is super delicious. This treat is so simple, yet soooo good, and it is one of my favorites.

Warm Cinnamon Roll
Where to find it: Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom

What it is: The Warm Cinnamon Roll from Gaston’s Tavern may sound like a normal cinnamon roll. BUT… it is four times the size of a normal one and is the size of the plate and super tall!!!

Why I love it: This snack is a great breakfast for the entire family to split. Also, it’s warm and gooey, and just overall super yummy. I might even say that it’s my favorite breakfast item in the Magic Kingdom. Ask for extra icing. You won’t be disappointed.

Mickey Pretzel
Where to find it: The Lunching Pad and Cool Ship in Tomorrowland in Magic Kingdom

What it is: A classic soft pretzel in the shape of Mickey’s face. It can be served with cheese sauce if you are into that and there are stuffed pretzel varieties as well.

Why I love it: I am a big fan of soft pretzels and I love the Disney twist on the classic treat. Also, they are pretty big so you may want to consider splitting one. Sometimes you can find the soft pretzels in other themed-shapes. Once I ate one in the shape of Mrs. Incredible’s mask.

Where to find it: Frontierland Churro Cart in Magic Kingdom

What it is: A long fried stick of cinnamon-sugar goodness. It’s kind of like an extra long donut and is served with a chocolate dipping sauce. For the 2019 holiday season, the Churro Cart is even selling a churro with chocolate sugar and a caramel pecan dipping sauce.

Why I love it: First, I love donuts. A lot. So this snack is a perfect way for me to extend my donut-loving beyond breakfast. I love that it is served warm and isn’t too sweet. I love the chocolate dipping sauce, but it can be messy.

Hope you enjoy snacking your way through Magic Kingdom. If you have any other favorite snacks, please let me know in the comments. Have a magical day!

  1. The warm cinnamon bun at Gaston’s is a great call!! I Love those! There’s also a churro ice cream sandwich at Sleepy Hallow you should check out…


  2. Mickey Ice Cream Bars are my favorite! I could eat one each day. I discovered Dole Whip last summer when I was in Disney. I didn’t realize there was so many flavors until I read your blog. I also had the pretzel with cheese last visit. Sounds like I have some other snacks to try too!
