Walking around a theme park all day can work up a hunger. Thankfully, you can relax at the Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World Resort and enjoy plenty of sweet and salty snacks that will satisfy every taste bud when the need to feed strikes.
During your next family visit to Disney World, try these 13 treats:
1. Dole Whip at Aloha Isle, Adventureland

2. Country Bears Jug, Frontierland

3. Egg Roll at Adventureland Snack Cart, Adventureland
At under $3, the egg rolls from Adventureland make a great, budget-friendly snack.

5. Citrus Swirl at Sunshine Tree Terrace, Adventureland
Get a taste of the Sunshine State with this citrusy snack that mixes soft-serve ice cream with frozen orange juice. If orange juice isn't for you, you can also order a cup of vanilla ice cream or a raspberry-lemonade slushy.

8. Popcorn in a Souvenir Bucket, Fantasyland
Popcorn always makes a great shareable snack. Go for the souvenir popcorn bucket - it comes with a lid so you can save your snack while you ride rides.

Cool off with this classic ice cream treat but be warned: Once you break the candy shell, you better eat it up fast before it melts.

A hot dog makes for quick snack that satisfies and Casey’s Corner on Main Street, U.S.A. makes a good one. You can also get specialty dogs, like the chili-cheese or the macaroni & cheese topped with bacon. Stick around and you may catch the piano player, Jim, playing a few ragtime tunes.
