Top them with sprinkles, top them with chocolate chips, top them with crazy icing, or just eat them with their gooey marshmallow goodness: Mickey Rice Krispy treats are the signature Walt Disney World treat! Get them on a stick with plenty of toppings, or pick up a pre-wrapped one just about anywhere at the parks and resorts. Pro tip: use up your leftover snack credits on these yummy treats and save them for your flight home, gifts for friends, or a little touch of Disney after you’ve gotten home!

Tinker Bell Ice Cream (Magic Kingdom)

The key lime Dole whip, white chocolate wings, sugar cone and green cotton candy dusted with edible glitter is everything a pixie dusted-dessert should be. The gorgeous fluffy halo of the most popular Instagram pics might not appear on every cone — it’s very difficult to get cotton candy to stay airy and photogenic on a humid Florida afternoon! — but we think the magic is still there! Get it when it’s on the menu at Storybook Treats in Magic Kingdom, right next to The Many Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh.

Zebra Domes (Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge)

If you’re dining at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s vast buffet, Boma, you’ll be able to help yourself to piles of delectable Zebra Domes — a weighty little sugar-bomb of Amarula Cream Liquor mousse and white chocolate. But if not, stop into the Lodge’s counter-service restaurant, The Mara, or Kidani Village’s merchandise shop, Johari Treasures, and look for these pre-packaged four-packs of Zebra Domes. But be warned: these sweet favorites sell out!

Poutine (Epcot)

It’s gravy! It’s cheese curds! It’s french fries! It’s hard to go wrong! Grab some poutine at the Refreshment Port, located in World Showcase near Canada. When you want a savory flavor for a snack credit, poutine delivers the goods.

Citrus Swirl (Magic Kingdom)

They say there are two kinds of Disney person: Citrus Swirl, or Dole Whip. I’m happy to claim to both: give me either one and a spoon, and I’m a happy Disney girl. Citrus Swirl is definitely a Walt Disney World original, with a blend of soft-serve vanilla ice cream and frozen orange juice slush that’s been around since the early years of the Magic Kingdom. My tip: make sure every bite is half vanilla and half orange. The two pair together perfectly; separately, the sweet profile of the vanilla can make the orange juice taste bitter. Get it at Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland, across from the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse.

Dole Whip Float (Magic Kingdom)

There are Dole Whips… and there are Dole Whip floats. Now, look, I’m a fan of pineapple soft serve as much as the next person… but I advise you to get the Dole Whip swirl, with vanilla, just to take the fruity edge off. Better yet, get the Dole Whip Float – and ask for the Vanilla/Pineapple swirl in that. Once the pineapple juice and ice cream hits your tastebuds, you’ll understand why. Get your Dole Whips and Dole Whip floats at the Magic Kingdom (Aloha Isle – Adventureland), and Disney’s Polynesian Resort (Pineapple Lanai). You’ll also find Dole Whip options at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and assorted other locations with an optional rum topper. It really keeps showing up in new places all the time!

Peter Pan Float (Magic Kingdom)

Another Storybook Treats entry is the delicious (and beautiful) Peter Pan Float! Key lime ice cream, Sprite, and a red chocolate feather make it both refreshing and utterly Instagrammable.

Maleficent Cone (Magic Kingdom)

So, Storybook Treats apparently has all of the lime ice cream in the park, and so when you have things you want to make green for thematic reasons, that’s where you put them. In this case, it’s to celebrate the return of Maleficent, the fire-breathing dragon, in the the Festival of Fantasy parade. This cone is usually available during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, too. So look for it — you never know!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse (Disney’s Animal Kingdom)

Satu’li Canteen, in Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, gets rave reviews for its bowls, which include your choice of proteins like chicken, beef, or chili-spiced tofu; and some other original items like steamed cheeseburger buns. But for snacks, everyone agrees on the futuristic curves of the blueberry cream cheese mousse with passionfruit curd.

Starbucks (All Theme Parks & Disney Springs)

Hot or cold, night or day, Starbucks is here to save the day. For just a snack credit!

All of these items were on Walt Disney World menus and part of the Disney Dining Plan at time of publication, but menus do change without notice, so be sure to look for the purple DDP logo before ordering. Generally, you’ll find single-serve items for $6 or less are available with Disney snack credits, although there are exceptions to that rule. When in doubt, ask a Cast Member! They’ll be happy to show you snack credit menu items.
