Disney’s Surprising Snack: Exploring the Pickle-in-a-Pouch

The things that you wouldn’t expect to find on a Disney trip planning website – an article about a pickle-in-a-pouch.

Believe me when I tell you that this is one of the best articles that I think will ever grace the homepage of StepstoMagic.com. It’s less about the fact that you can buy a pickle at Disney World and more about the benefits that this snack will actually give to your vacation as a whole.

Helpful for Long Park Days

The pickle is actually a great source of energy. When you’re spending a day at Walt Disney World, the excitement could actually make your levels uneven – and it’s not just the acclimation of the weather.

Adding a source of sodium into your body when you are sweating and running on a high of anticipation can be a great way to get from one meal to another.

They’re Cold

One of our favourite places to stop to see the pickles in “action” is the Liberty Square Market. When you walk into this outdoor vending area (covered from the elements), you’ll find a nice variety of overpriced drinks ($5.50 for a Smartwater) surrounded by three affordable pick-me-up snacks.

In-between the Mini Babybel cheese and the Cuties mandarin 3-pack, you’ll find the Pickles and everything is surrounded by ice.

This makes that first bite incredible! Have you ever actually eaten a cold pickle? Oh my goodness – you’re missing out.

The Price and Availability

A pickle-in-a-pouch is currently listed at $2.29, but please keep in mind that prices can and will change.

  • The Magic Kingdom @ Liberty Square Market
  • EPCOT @ Outdoor Vending in front of The Land (Seasonal)
  • Hollywood Studios @ Anaheim Produce on Hollywood Boulevard

Long story short – pick up a pickle when you’re in need of a little energy on your next Walt Disney World theme park day. It’s actually a worthwhile snack to splurge on!
