Is Goofy a dog? Could Babe Ruth succeed in today’s game? Are hot dogs sandwiches? Yes, yes and no. But there are bigger questions that we are intimidated to tackle. Why am I here? What’s the meaning of life? Which brings us to – does a Ronto Wrap at Hollywood Studios qualify as a snack?
The Ronto Wrap – which has roasted pork, grilled pork sausage, peppercorn sauce and tangy slaw wrapped in pita bread – is available at Ronto’s Roaster and Docking Bay 7 in Batuu of Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I would love to tell you that it’s a snack. But it’s got two kinds of pork, tangy slaw and pita bread. It’s a meal. So even though I’d love to include it on this list, today we’re focusing on snacks at Hollywood Studios.

What are the best snacks in Disney’s Hollywood Studios?
The best Hollywood Studios snacks represent the broad spectrum of culinary experience. They can be savory or sweet. Sometimes they are a fantastic dessert, representing the best of Disney Parks’ dining. Other times, they’re a simple bucket of popcorn or hot pretzels “origami-ed” up to look like Mickey Mouse.
Which Walt Disney World Park has the best snacks?
Reader, I am but a simple man. For this question, you need one of the world’s great thinkers like Plato, Satre or Guy Fieri. Oh. Do you want me to rank them? Ok. I will pick up the gauntlet you have so brazenly thrown down. But first, this requires a few ground rules.
First, a snack must come from a quick-service restaurant or snack stand. Therefore, an appetizer from the Hollywood Brown Derby is out. Also out is a hunk of meatloaf or fried chicken from the 50s Prime Time Cafe. Second, snacks cannot be something that would generally be considered a full meal – so my beloved Ronto Wrap is out.
A snack, however, can be something served at a place like the BaseLine Tap House where the food isn’t the most important thing on the menu. With that out of the way, here are the best snacks in Hollywood Studios:
Here we have regular old popcorn served in a bucket, paper or some souvenir packaging. You can find it in many snack carts throughout the park. It’s nothing particularly special, but it’s good.
28. PB & J Uncrustable
The Uncrustable is available at the ABC Commissary. This is the last resort of desperate people or the parents of a picky eater.
27. Nacho Cheese Tortilla Chips
Leave it to the Rock ‘n’ Roller coaster-adjacent snack stand KRNR The Rock Station to offer the most basic snack in the bark: Tortilla chips and cheese. Would I ever eat this snack in the park? In the words of Aerosmith, dream on.
26. Mini Babybel snack cheese
This cheese and other snacks can be found at Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land. Honestly, I do love a good Mini Babybel snack cheese. Also, as the parent of a former travel ballplayer, I recognize the value of the snack cheese. Still, this is something I can get at the local Food City.
Look, I like fruit. This is not an anti-fruit blog. I had a couple of small mandarin oranges and a banana for breakfast this very morning. And Disney has good fruit. A lot of times, that will be my breakfast in the park. But come snack time? It’s only really a functional option though the potassium from a banana or two may be helpful. This fruit stand is located near the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
24. Mickey Pretzels
As previously discussed, they’re hot pretzels shaped like Mickey. The taste is not unique, but it’s still a Disney staple. These pretzels, like the aforementioned popcorn, are located throughout the park.
23. Funnel cakes
Funnel cakes are available at Epic Eats, which is an Indiana Jones-style dessert canteen. The Glimmer & Shimmer is very sweet with cookies ‘n cream and vanilla ice cream.
22. French fries
Available in multiple locations, it’s a good standby for the picky eaters in the family but also for the times you just want some fries.
21. Pickle in a Pouch
Some will think I have the Pickle in a Pouch rated too highly. However, let me make two points: One, pickles are delicious. And two, pickles are great to help stave off muscle cramps from dehydration while walking around in the Florida heat. Have I had pickle juice the night before going into the parks in the middle of July? Reader, I have. And I loved it.
20. Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bar
This treat has vanilla ice cream coated in a chocolate shell. It is a classic, but you have to eat it quickly on a hot day.
19. Earl Grey Cupcake
From the Trolley Car Cafe comes this Earl Grey Cupcake. It’s topped with orange buttercream frosting and it is delicious.
18. All-beef quarter-pound hot dog
We are threading the thinnest of needles here. The all-beef hot dog at the Dockside Diner is a snack. However, the other hot dogs that come with pretzel buns or mac and cheese or bacon, lettuce cheese and tomato? Those are meals.
17. Outpost Popcorn Mix
This popular popcorn mix can be found at Kat Saka’s Kettle located in Galaxy’s Edge. It’s a mix of sweet and spicy popcorn flavors. If you’re going to buy popcorn in the park, you might as well make it specialty popcorn.
16. Green Milk
The second of the classic Star Wars drinks is available at the Milk Stand in Galaxy’s Edge. Green Milk is a plant-based blend of coconut and rice milk with zippy citrus and tropical characteristics.
15. Kyryll Pork Rinds
While it may be hard to go to Ronto Roasters and not get a Ronto Wrap, you can get these pork rinds in a savory blend of ancho chile, cheddar, smoke and cinnamon.
14. Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwich
This Rosie’s All-American Cafe dessert is a pretzel shortbread cookie sandwiched with strawberry jam and peanut butter-chocolate fudge and a Fantasmic! chocolate piece.
13. Pizza Cookie
This dessert treat from Pizzerizzo is a sugar cookie “pizza” topped with strawberry jam, white chocolate and sprinkles.
12. Carrot Cake Whoopie Pie
This Trolley Car Cafe treat is two carrot cake cookies with creme filling in the middle.
Available at Woody’s Lunch Box, these are tater tot nachos inexplicably described as potato barrels coated with beef and bean chili, shredded cheese and signature queso with tomatoes and corn chips, finished with sour cream and a sprinkle of green onions.
We’re probably pushing the boundaries of snacks here, but I’ll allow it.
10. Ice cream
Hollywood Scoops offers sundaes and cones in a handful of flavors. You can find a plant-based chocolate dessert there as well. It’s a perfect treat for a hot day.
9. Bavarian Pretzel
Don’t settle for a Mickey Pretzel. Stop at the BaseLine Tap House and grab this pretzel with beer cheese fondue and spicy mustard while you enjoy your beer.
8. Blue Milk
The more iconic Star Wars milk is available from the Milk Stand in Galaxy’s Edge, Blue Milk is a plant-based blend of coconut and rice milk with “alluring” fruity characteristics.
7. Toffee & Coconut Blondie
Catalina Eddie’s current dessert option is the Toffee & Coconut Blondie topped with Salted Caramel Buttercream.
6. Jack Jack’s Num Num Cookie
It’s essentially a small chocolate chip cookie pie and it is wonderful when warm. It’s also quite large.
5. Coffee-rubbed rib-eye beef pastry
The BaseLine Tap House doesn’t do full entrees, just small plates, but this small plate will make you want a larger plate for sure.
4. Banana Split Parfait
This Dockside Diner dessert features chocolate and banana mousse with fresh strawberries topped with whipped cream and spiced pineapple.
3. Wookiee Cookie
This Backlot Express treat is two large oatmeal cookies with vanilla cream filling garnished with a milk chocolate sash on top inspired by Chewbacca’s bandolero. And it tastes like a huge Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie.
Side note – I like the idea that Chewbacca was flying around the galaxy wearing a sash like he’d won a beauty contest. Also, I think I’ve been spelling Wookiee wrong for the last 40 years or so.
2. California Cheese and Charcuterie Plate
This plate at the BaseLine Tap House is the perfect snack to have while enjoying a beer or two while you wait for the family to finish waiting to ride. Included are the Toma farmstead cheese, Point Reyes original blue cheese, Laura Chenel’s Sonoma goat cheese, chorizo and calabrese salami, cornichons, grapes and toasted baguettes.
1. A Lunch Box Tart
This treat is a marmalade stuffed pastry coated in fondant made to look like a large Pop-Tart. It comes in a variety of flavors and selections vary by day. The Chocolate-Hazelnut Lunch Box Tart is my personal favorite.
