ATofD1We 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®?

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.

    You nailed it with #1, my favorite hangout in all of WDW is The Writer’s Stop. Like you said, it’s tucked away. It’s an awesome spot to just relax for a few and take a load off. Here’s what ya do, head on up to the counter, order a carrot cake cookie and a cappuccino. Then grab a spot in front of the tv or one of the tall tables in the back and enjoy some down time.

    You used to be able to sit at the corner windows and people watch, but they removed the stools and put the coffee fixins there. Anyway, have an awesome day!

    I, too, love Min and Bill’s and The Writer’s Stop. I would also like to throw in a shout out for Starring Rolls. The numerous pastries there make great snacks. I especially like the mixed fruit tarts!

  3. Dinosaur Gertie’s soft Vanilla ice cream is without a doubt the best Vanilla ice cream I have ever had, I would definitely put that in this list
