What snacks are allowed in Disney World?

Certainly, we love a Mickey Bar or a soft pretzel, but boy do they add up fast when you’re buying them for a family of seven!

Disney World guests are pretty much allowed to bring any snacks into the park. Of course, this is a godsend for families like mine with a lot of little kids.

Overall, Disney has a generous policy when it comes to outside food and drinks. You can bring in any nonalcoholic beverages and food. Glass containers are not allowed, and if you bring in a cooler, it can’t have loose ice. 

When we visit the parks, half of our family backpack’s volume is devoted to snacks for the kids. I try to pack little treats like fruit snacks, which can save us when the kids are running out of patience in a longer-than-expected ride queue. Some of our other favorite snacks include goldfish, Slim Jims, dried mango, applesauce pouches and granola bars. 

I think Disney allows outside food for a couple of reasons. First, it would be difficult to police. In other words, do they really want their security guards to tell moms like me that they have to trash their meticulously-packed gallon-sized Ziploc bags full of tiny red raisin boxes and cheese sticks upon entry?

I don’t think so. Allowing outside snacks also makes things easier for guests with food allergies or other dietary restrictions.

If you’re looking for in-park snacks, there is a plethora of delicious snack options available at each of Disney’s theme parks! Based on the social media presence of Disney snacks and fans lining up to purchase them in the parks, Disney certainly isn’t looking at a demand problem.

What is the most iconic Walt Disney World snack? 

In my humble opinion, the most iconic Walt Disney World snack is surely the Dole Whip. But, there are certainly others who deserve a mention.

This frozen pineapple soft serve was once only available in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom. You can still grab a classic Dole Whip or Dole Whip Float (made with pineapple juice) at Aloha Isle.

More recently, you can find it and its many variations across the Walt Disney World Resort. For example, Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney Springs and The Polynesian Resort all have quick-service restaurants serving various flavors of Dole Whips.

5. Popcorn

Found in: Multiple locations

Although it’s basically just regular freshly popped popcorn, when you’re eating it at a Disney park, it “hits different” as the youths say.

We like to get a popcorn bucket and have it refilled throughout our vacation. 

The Canada Pavilion is a great place to get some delicious popcorn. You can also find some in Mahindi in Animal Kingdom or the Cool Ship in Magic Kingdom.
