Our Top 5 Snacks From Disney And Universal

We have just returned from a great two weeks in Orlando visiting Disney and Universal. If you are on Disney dining plan then there are loads of snacks that you can enjoy. If you are staying offsite and don't want to put on a couple of stone or spend an absolute fortune then you will want to choose carefully. As a general rule, snacks and drinks start at the $5 mark.

One thing that surprised me was that slush in the US is fizzy. Give me a Slush Puppie any day. You can get these much cheaper in the petrol stations as they will set you back nearly $5 for one in the parks.

So what snacks made it into my top 5? I should say that the top 3 could be in any order as they were all so good.

1. Cold Store Creamery Ice Cream located in Universal Citywalk

OMG this is some of the best ice cream ever. We shared 2 large ones between the 5 of us and there was more than enough. It came to around $20. We had an oreo overload and a strawberry one with strawberries and pie crust. Both were amazing.

2. Sprinkles Cupcake ATM located in Disney Springs

Again, a total gimmick and possibly the most expensive cupcake ever - $5.50 + tax. But how can you resist trying a cupcake ATM? Lots of fun and one of the best, if not the best, cupcakes I have ever eaten. (It was salted caramel.)

You can find it by walking straight out of the lime garage and it is on your right.

3. Voodoo Doughnuts located in Universal Citywalk

On the basis that the queue for this place was longer than the one for RIP Ride Rockit, I was pretty sure that they would taste good. You can get a cake type doughnut or a yeast one. I personally preferred the yeast one. The price depends on the type you choose and was from around 2 to 6 dollars a doughnut. My husband and I shared the Universal doughnut (it is the size of 2!) and it was amazing.

4. Mickey's Kitchen Sink located in Magic Kingdom Plaza Ice Cream Parlour

This is more of a novelty. The ice cream is good but not fantastic like Cold Store Creamery. There are 4 scoops of ice cream with sauce and whipped cream. It came in at the $18 mark but I now have a link kitchen sink as a momento.

5. Lard Lad Doughnut located in Universal Studio

The Big Pink can be purchased from a van in The Simpsons area. It is actually pretty good value at around $7.50 as it easily fed the 5 of us.


So there are my top 5 snacks, I didn't even see a Dole whip to try one. Clearly need to go back to find one. What are your favourite snacks when visiting Disney and Universal?
