Classic Disney World Food

Walt Disney World is full of dining options, but what if you wanted to try the best of the best? 

We’ve gone through various lists, including the top 100 veggie dishes and top 100 meat dishes, but there are so many changes to menus that it’s impossible to stay on top of everything. 

So here’s a starting point on what are some of the quintessential Disney World noms! 


Dole Whip from Disney Springs

Pineapple soft serve with cold pineapple juice. A classic that can be found in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom and at Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. 5 stars! 


Pre-packaged ice cream bar with vanilla ice cream dunked in a chocolate coating. This can be found in most outdoor vending locations, along with the food courts and basically anywhere you look on property!

The Mara at Animal Kingdom Lodge usually has Zebra Domes in their refrigerated grab-and-go section. They aren’t sold individually, so look for the pack of 4/5. They are also sometimes offered as desserts at Buffets, like at Boma! 

Although it’s easy to just say that the Zebra Dome is classic…it’s actually a fairly complicated dessert. An Amarula Cream Liquor mousse is enrobed in panna cotta-esque white chocolate and drizzled with chocolate and chocolate shavings…aka what dreams are made of! 

Bread Service

There are two locations to get Bread Service at Walt Disney World, with the classic at Saana and another version at Tiffins.

The best is definitely at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, and you can order the bread service at the lounge or the main restaurant.


This is a cupcake dessert that can be found at Be Our Guest in the Magic Kingdom. It really is delicious and never a disappointment!

I’ve had it once and lived to tell the tale! 

This is a huge sundae with many ingredients found at Beaches and Cream…and when they deliver it to your table, it’s accompanied by flashing sirens and a cool lighting effect! 


There are a few items that just scream “I’m at Disney World”, and the Mickey Pretzel is one of them. Found all over the place, it’s all about timing because you don’t want old stale ones BUT you also want something to dip them in. 

Basically, what I’m getting at is that you have to keep trying them until you find the perfect one…and then keep going! 

I hope that this article made you hungry;)
