We all know the feeling: it's midday in the parks and you have a hankering for something to eat, but it's too close to dinner to have a full meal. But where can you find something quick to ward off your hunger for a few hours? Not many people know about the many small, counter service locations and kiosks that offer snacks. This week I will feature my favorite snack-spots found in Disney's Hollywood Studios® (DHS).
Top 5 Snack-Spots in DHS 1. The Writer's Stop- Tucked off the end-corner of the Streets of New York, this hidden gem offers snacks for people with a sweet tooth. The Writer's Stop offers drinks like hot chocolate, cappuccino, coffee, and lattes. They also have assorted goodies like muffins, cupcakes, cookies, danishes, brownies, and cinnamon buns. 2. Min and Bill's Dockside Diner- This is one of my favorites because it has unique snacks that you can't find anywhere else in the park. Look for this place in (yes, built in) the big boat sitting across from The American Idol® Experience. They have menu items such as a frankfurter in a pretzel roll, a sausage marinara and mozzarella bread cone, Cajun shrimp salad bread cone, chicken bacon avocado salad bread cone, chips, cookies, frozen lemonade and shakes. 3. Herbie's Drive-In- Want to grab a bite before heading into the Lights, Motors, Action® Extreme Stunt Show®? Stop by this spot right at the entrance of the show on the Streets of New York. Herbie's offers corn dogs, chili cheese nachos, fiesta chili cheese bread cone, chips, pita chips, granola bars, whole fruit, trail mix, and slushies. 4. KRNR Station- This spot is located right by the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster® Starring Aerosmith plaza and serves a variety of different things including hot dogs, chips, cookies, ice cream, smoothies, and frozen lemonade. 5. DHS's popcorn kiosks- I'm sure you all have seen these popcorn kiosks scattered throughout the parks, but did you know that they sell more than just popcorn? Usually these kiosks will also carry frozen lemonade cups, California trail mix, whole fruit, pita chips, and granola bars (guilt-free snacking!)
Do you have any favorite snack-spots or treats that you get while visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios®? Kristin Casagrand is a student currently studying physical therapy at Bellarmine University. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Kristin has taken many a family vacations as a child driving 24 hrs, cramped in the back of the car and fighting with her sister to get to Disney (definitely worth it though). She looks forward to sharing “A taste of Disney” with everyone each week.
