Disney Treats You Must Eat

On our recent trip to Disney World we tried a few new food places and found some great must try snacks and meals. Every other trip we have enjoyed the Disney Dining Plan as a family. For our adults only trip we decided to ditch the dining plan and eat out of pocket. So we made a list of certain foods and drinks we wanted to try but never really had room for with the Disney Dining Plan. Here are a few examples of some awesome eats at Disney World, Animal Kingdom, Pop Century, Downtown Disney, and More.

Les Vins des Chefs de France Beverage Cart
(located across from Chefs de France in Epcot)
On the right is Grand Marnier Orange Slush and on the left is Grey Goose Lemon Slush
$9.34 sold throughout the day
We had heard so much about these great drinks that we had to try both of them. My favorite was the Grey Goose Lemon but both were AMAZING, especially on a hot day!

Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom
(located in Liberty Square after the bridge across from Olde Time Christmas Shop)
Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich 
This item is only served from 11am-5pm each day
This is a fresh Belgian Waffle served with a breaded and fried Chicken Breast dipped in a sweet and spicy sauce, topped with a fresh coleslaw and arugula garnish. We arrived not much after 11am and witnessed the cast member making the fresh sweet and spicy sauce that the chicken is dipped in. All we know it has honey in it and is so good you could eat a show covered in it! The waffle was fresh and made to order as well. My husband and me split the sandwich and it was a great afternoon light lunch or snack. They also served waffles with toppings and syrup, they looked wonderful!

Fresh Pop Waffle with Meat
Served only at breakfast
This fresh made waffle with the POP logo was a must try for a waffle lover like myself! I heard about this great waffles from my friend Kerri's blog just a few weeks before we left on our vacation. I knew I had to try them. We are normally not breakfast eaters at Disney we wake up early and hit the parks running at rope drop and normally eat an early lunch. So we decided to wake up earlier and try Pop Century for breakfast and we weren't disappointed. This waffle is available as a waffle only, with meat, or with fruit topping. I chose it with meat, normally it comes with bacon and sausage. I don't care for sausage so I got an extra piece of bacon.Syrup and butter are located near the beverage station.

Bounty Platter
Served only at breakfast
John decided to try this great example of a large breakfast meal at Disney on the same day as I got my POP waffle. I tried a few bites and it was very good. It filled him up so much that we skipped lunch that day! It comes with a biscuit, 2 slices of bacon, sausage, eggs, breakfast potatoes, and 2 french toast sticks.

Angus Barbeque Burger
served during lunch and dinner
We decided to take a break from Star Wars Weekend and headed back to our resort, we were pleasantly surprised to find the resort almost empty! We decided to eat a quite lunch with the pop music playing in the background and got a seat next to the windows to enjoy the view of the 60's Hippy Dippy Pool. John got this monster of an Angus Burger topped with bacon, cheese, onion strings, and BBQ sauce. It is also served with fries. It was very good and John said much better than the burgers in the parks.

Monster Brownie
We tried this awesome Monster Brownie on our first day, and fell in love! It is available on the dining plan as a snack credit. You can find it at the dessert counter, where you can also get it made into a brownie sundae! You can also find it in the dessert self service area in between the counter service food locations. Another awesome treat to look for was a pack of Strawberries with chocolate sauce and whipped cream to dip them in! They also have tie dye cheesecake, cookies, plain brownies, and other great treats.

Flame Tree BBQ
(located in Discovery Island right before the entrance to Dino Land)
Pork Sandwich 
served with coleslaw

Ribs and Chicken Combo
served with baked beans and coleslaw

We had never tried this Quick Service location before and we thought for our last day at Disney that this would be a great choice, and it was! I grew up in Memphis with some of the best BBQ around, and I thought this was a great meal as well as a great deal. The pork sandwich came without sauce, but sauce is available at the condiment island inside the seating area. We really enjoyed the spicy and sweet sauce! We received the meal with desserts by accident but this is what the meal would look like if you if you used 2 quick service dining plans and a snack. Fries are not served with the meal but are included as a snack on the dining plan. The desserts are a chocolate mousse pudding and a key lime pie cup. John really enjoyed the coleslaw and baked beans. You can also substitute the coleslaw with the pork sandwich for baked beans.

Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom
(located on Main Street in Magic Kingdom)
Cinnamon Roll

Butter Croissant

After Extra Magic Hours at Magic Kingdom we decided to stop at the Main Street Bakery at 2am for an after midnight snack! The Cinnamon Roll was huge and so good! The croissant was very good, warm, and flaky. I love to go to this location to use the most of my snack credits. They also have awesome ice cream cookie sandwiches, cookies, brownies, and chocolate croissants. 
Aloha Isle
(located at Magic Kingdom inside Adventureland)
Dole Whip Float

This was also a first try for us! We wanted to try this for awhile but just never had the time. We tried it twice this trip and really loved it. First time we tried the float with vanilla soft serve with pineapple juice, the second time we tried the pineapple soft serve with the pineapple juice. You can also choose orange soft serve ice cream. You can try this delicious soft serve alone or as a float. They also do root beer and coke floats too. It was so good!

We tried many more things on our trip, but these were are all time favorites I though I would share with you. Hope you enjoyed this blog and it will encourage you to try the awesome treats at Disney World!
