Our List of Must-Try Walt Disney World Foods


Here at WDW Radio, it is no secret that we LOVE Walt Disney World food, and our Blog Team members have a wide range of appetites, preferences and favorites. In the spirit of Lou Mongello’s 102 Things to Do at Walt Disney World at Least Once, we have decided to bring you a list of Must-Try Walt Disney World Foods.  While we do not have 102 delectable treats on our list, a number of our writers have contributed at least one item each for our readers to try.  You will not find Pineapple Dole Whip or Mickey Waffles on this list.  We wanted to showcase menu items that others may not have tried or even heard of before, so without further ado, our Must-Try Walt Disney World Foods:


Mr. Kamals Seasoned Fries

The Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake at Liberty Tree Tavern. It’s so good, that they took it off the menu and people freaked so they brought it back!  Also, the Seasoned Fries (pictured right) at Mr. Kamal’s snack cart in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They are served with tzatziki salad and sriracha ketchup and are the perfect blend of cool and spicy. – Alyson Miller


Rock Shrimp Tempura at Morimoto Asia or the Carciofi Pizza at Via Napoli. – KSWicks


Arancini from Via Napoli in Italy at Epcot.  I make sure I have these at least once every trip! Rice and cheese rolled into a ball and perfectly fried. – Ruby


Arancini from Via NapoliThe Arancini (pictured right) at Via Napoli. Creamy risotto Milanese (made with arborio rice, white wine, saffron and chicken stock) is balled into a fritter around a piece of mozzarella and rolled in a light breadcrumb. The fritters are deep fried and served atop a simple tomato marinara. Simply amazing and crave-able. – Kristin Fuhrmann-Simmons


Raglan Road‘s menu is absolutely delicious, but if you’re looking for a special and sweet treat don’t miss Ger’s Bread and Butter Pudding ($9.50). This dessert is off the charts sinful! There is enough to share with someone, although why you would is beyond me. This is not some mushy pudding, each component has its own unique texture and taste. Come hungry. – Erin Stough


For me, no trip to Walt Disney World is complete without a stop (or two) to Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop for a sundae. My favorite two menu items to order are the Nob Hill Chill and the original World Famous Hot Fudge Sundae! Just thinking about ordering one today makes my mouth water. – Alyssa Wiseman


A new Magic Kingdom Park favorite for me is the Cheshire Cat Tail (pictured right) from Cheshire Cafe near Mad Tea Party. It’s essentially a long croissant topped with icing and chocolate chips. While the type of food item itself is probably something you can find at any given bakery, that doesn’t negate how delicious it is, and the fun tie-in with the theming of the area makes it a very “Disney” treat. – Blake Taylor


While the Florida heat does not often mesh well with soups, stews or chilis, I nonetheless make a stop at Columbia Harbour House for the Vegetarian Chili at least once every trip.  The nice quiet, cool of the upstairs dining makes this soup enjoyable on even the hottest day.  Packed with a wide range of veggies like mushrooms, black olives, corn, peppers and much more, it is a great mid-afternoon snack, meal add-on, or light lunch. – Kendall Foreman


Curried Vegetable Crew StewHave you ever dined at Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen?  If so, then you have seen some of the interesting names they have for their entrees, like Nile Nellie’s Noodle Bowl with Duck, Trader Sam’s Head-on Shrimp, or “Tastes Like Chicken” – Because it is!.  My favorite is the Curried Vegetable Crew Stew.  Who doesn’t like coconut rice, vegetables and curry sauce?  So next time you are at Skipper Canteen – try the Crew Stew and enjoy! – Vanessa Prince
