    Ghirardelli’s drinking chocolate w/ a biscotti is my favorite drink/snack at Downtown.

  2. petertedonefilm says:

    (More a proper dessert but…)Bread Pudding at Ragland Road. Insane amount that no single person should be able to eat. Delicious sauce to pour over as you eat further into the cup.

  7. Nancy says:

    Forgot to add my favourite snack at DTD. Has to be the chocolate cake at Earl of Sandwich. I just can’t decide which filling I like best (white, chocolate, or peanut butter)…so I get all three!

  37. laserfreak12345 says:

  38. Clifton Quinn says:

    from goofys candy shop the chocolate covered pineapple is delicious. You can either get milk or dark chocolate and you wont go wrong with either one.

  39. GoldenRhino100 says:

    Goofus candy shop has the goofy glaciers which isn’t favorite snack not just at disney but everywhere

  40. GoldenRhino100 says:

    I ment goofy

  41. James Davies says:

    I love Food Ruckers!!!!

  42. Toria Noelle says:

    I’ve never heard of Goofy Glaciers, but they sound really good, what kind of treat are they? and at Hollywood Studios, they have a candy shop and everything there is really good. My brother and I went there when my mom, dad, and sister were riding a ride and we both really loved their candy. I would suggest going there if you’re going to Disney again.

  43. iMusely says:

    Goofy glaciers are, comparable to an Icee or, a Slushee. The difference is that a Goofy Glacier is easier/smoother to drink rather than drinking an Icee or a slush.

  44. Toria Noelle says:

    Thanks (: I have to get one if I go

  45. Thoralmir says:

    The shaved ice in the Japan Pavilion in Epcot; the ice cream (and everything else) at Beaches & Cream in the Yacht & Beach Club; the buffalo popcorn chicken at Sci-Fi Drive-In Café at Hollywood Studios; the pizza at the Italian pavilion at Epcot; the Chili Cone Carne at Downtown Disney; and the buffet at the Trail’s End Tavern at Ft. Wilderness

  46. buffy0214 says:

    I didn’t know there were so many amazing snacks available at DD. I need to eat more LOL Goofy’s was the only place I could find cherry sours on my last visit.

  47. Sorceressofstars says:

    Port Orleans French quarter beniet ( spelling ahhhh) as well as dole whip at MK and boneless wings at AK and Epcot I think would be the cute little French bakerie I love the Hand made goodies 🙂

  48. Vito Giobbie says:

    One of my favorite snacks at downtown disney is one you already mentioned, but it’s a different option, though. It’s at Goofy’s Candy Company and it’s the customized candy apple. I got mine with chocolate and sprinkles. Oh my god, it was phenomenal!

  49. Jfamolare123 says:

    Do you eat all those snacks in one day? Lol

  50. silvercrew1 says:

    Used to work custodial at Downtown Disney. Walking around smelling all of these snacks and not being able to eat any while working was a killer!!

  51. bob just bob says:

  58. TheRealBeerHeads says:

    Amazing video, when I was in California Adventures I had a Karl Strauss pintail pale ale and jalopeno cheese pretzel. Amazing pair. Also in Disneyland the sugar and cream cheese filled pretzels to die for ate at least 10 pretzels in a 3 day trip.

  59. almondandchocolate says:

    Aside from the pretzel, this things are desserts. Not what I would call snacks. Too much sweets. ;-; Although they do look delicious.
