Snacking Around the Magic Kingdom

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Green Loop. Today we are discussing the best ways to use your Disney Dining Plan snack credits.

Everybody loves a good Disney snack and one of the best ways to enjoy a wide variety of Disney snacks is to take a snack tour.  Today’s snack tour is going to take us through Magic Kingdom.  We are going to start our tour on the right side of Main Street work our way through Tomorrowland into Fantasyland cross-over into Frontierland and Adventureland before working our way back down the left side of Main Street and exiting the park 😦

As we head down the right side of Main Street, we need to make a stop at our first location: The Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.  The Parlor has lots of good snacks that can be had for a snack credit.  For our tour, we need to keep moving so let’s grab something portable: an ice cream cookie sandwich.  Two warm chocolate chip cookies with a scoop of ice cream in the middle.  So many choices for ice cream….let’s keep the chocolate chip theme with some mint chocolate chip ice cream.

We need to work off that ice cream and we head into Tomorrowland.  Tomorrowland is very ride-intensive but does not have many great snacks in the area.  After a couple fits of laughter on Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor and battling the Evil Emperor Zurg on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, we are ready for another snack.  Thankfully, an iconic snack can be purchased just about anywhere in Magic Kingdom including Tomorrowland…a Mickey-Shaped Pretzel.

We need to settle our stomach on a relaxing attraction in Fantasyland.  Barnstormer and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train are out.  Dumbo can go up and down as well.  There’s one attraction which fits the bill….Journey Under the Sea.

After we are doing being part of Ariel’s World, we make a bee-line for Gaston’s Tavern for one of his gigantic Cinnamon Rolls.

Cinnamon Roll

There’s enough cinnamon roll here for the entire family.

This cinnamon roll is very filling so we by-pass the cake cups at the Cheshire Cafe Stand and the ice cream at Storybook Treats.  We need to sit for a spell again.  We choose Mickey’s Philharmagic as our attraction to let our food settle before moving into Liberty Square to grab our next snack.

We haven’t had a lot to drink on our tour.  It’s time to get some hydration for the rest of our journey.  A root beer float should do the trick.  By now, it should also be the middle of the day.  We need to get some shade.  Time to visit the Hall of Presidents before moving on.

Frontierland is our next stop.  There is one snack to get in Frontierland….a churro.  Another cinnamon-filled snack but it is so good.  Supposedly, Disneyland puts out a churro ice sandwich with two rolled up churros serving as the “cookies” with vanilla ice cream in the middle.  That would make the churro even better.

Time for another show while we let those churros settle.  A visit to the Country Bear Jamboree.  We sing, we laugh, and we need to finish our tour.  We only have Adventureland left.  We are faced with a tough choice….a Citrus Swirl or a Dole Whip.  It’s the middle of the day.  We’re hot.  We’re tired.  There’s no line for a Citrus Swirl so it’s orange-y goodness wins.  Though when faced with the decision of a Citrus Swirl or a Dole Whip, there is no way to lose.

There’s just two things left to do.  Let our Citrus Swirl settle on the Jungle Cruise and learn about the back-side of water.  Then, we stop a Casey’s Hot Dog Stand for our last snack….a box of Cracker Jacks as we stroll (more like waddle) down Main Street as we leave the park after a day of attractions and tasty snacks (all which can be purchased for a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan.

  1. Can you believe I’ve never had the cinnamon roll there? Apparently, I’m missing out, especially if it’s a sharing size. – Jerusha, TheDisneyChef.com

  2. After reading your post, I’m confident I can tour Disney on JUST snacks, forget the meals! Who needs them? (Maybe my blood sugar?)

  3. I have a confession: I have never eaten a Mickey pretzel. They never really appeal too me because I have Auntie Ann’s pretzels so much and I don’t see how these can be as good. But that cinnamon roll: yum. I gotta have me one of those soon!

  4. I think my family needs to branch out. We pretty much always get Mickey Bars with our credits but these all sound so yummy
