Staples of a Disney World Diet

A Disney World vacation can a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will be remembered forever. Or, it can be a memorable trip that will entice you to make a follow-up trip as soon as possible.

In addition to attractions, characters and events – one of the best parts of a Disney trip is the food.

Let’s look at the ‘Staples of a Disney World Diet’

The Snacks, The Drinks and The Meals.

All three have different elements that will help you create a “balanced diet”;)

The Drinks

Yes, you can find Dole Whip at other spots in your day-to-day life, but there’s something special about getting a Dole Whip float from Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom. It’s a right-of-passage and will absolutely lift up your day!

Lefou’s Brew

Lefou’s Brew is a frosted apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow and topped with an all-natural passion fruit-mango foam found at Gaston’s Tavern in the Magic Kingdom.

I promise that this isn’t just about drinks, but one of the cool parts about the Disney World resort is the plethora of unique drinks to help with the acclimation of the Florida heat.

Joffrey’s Coffee Cold Brew

We tend to avoid Starbucks on vacation, as we like to visit places that we can’t get back home. This means that Joffrey’s Coffee is our go-to…and it’s perfect!

My order is typically the Shaken’ Jamaican Cold Brew with milk and vanilla syrup.

Yes, I get this every single day.

If you’re looking for the definition of “consistency”, a build-your-own bowl from the quick service location in Pandora: The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

We actually eat here every vacation, and when I’m on a solo trip – I’m here multiple times.

Les Halles Boulangerie in the France Pavilion

This is an easy one, as you can stop in and get anything that you go the hour before a busy meal time – you’ll want variety and a seat in the air conditioning.

Other Hits

  • Steakhouse 71
  • Columbia Harbour House
  • Saana

The goal is to continuously update this article as time goes on, as dining at Disney World is always being updated.
