 What to Eat at the Magic Kingdom

As we are beginning to think about our Disney World and Universal Studios trip in the fall, I started looking through some of my photos from last year and started to get a bit nostalgic.  I’m a Disney fanatic and am extremely excited to be taking Kaleb for his first visit.  We also have some friends who are planning their first visit and I’ve been asked several questions.

So, I’ve decided I need to finally write about Disney about more on this site here.  And, who doesn’t love food?!  So, if you’re headed to Disney World and want to know which items should be on your list of What to Eat at the Magic Kingdom, look no further.

‘The Grey Stuff’ Cupcake at Be Our Guest

Everything at Be Our Guest restaurant was amazing, but the ‘Grey Stuff’ Cupcake was melt-in-your-mouth delicious.  I wanted to order about 10 more.  It’s some kind of cookies and creme concoction.

The sandwich I had, some sort of prime rib, and fries were also very good.

Remember, eating at Be Our Guest is the only way to see inside Beast’s castle.  So, you may as well have 13 of these cupcakes.

LaFou’s Brew & Cinnamon Roll at Gaston’s Tavern

The brew came as a recommendation by a family friend and I could have hugged them it was so good.  This foamy drink is a combination of no-sugar added frozen apple juice, toasted marshmallow and passion fruit-mango foam.  Sounds like a crazy combination but it just works.  I could have drank these all day.

In addition, I got this gigantic cinnamon roll.  Which was to die for.  I love cinnamon rolls so much and this combined with the drink – yummy!

Dole Whip (or Pineapple Float)

A combination of pineapple ice cream and pineapple juice, which is great for a hot summer day at the park.


Where to find : Aloha Isle

Smoked Turkey Legs

One of my all-time favorite Disney treats.  These legs are as big as your face and you look ridiculous eating them, but I try to always get one each visit.


Where to find : All over Frontierland and Tomorrowland

Mickey Ice Cream Bars

Sadly, I don’t have a picture of this one.  There’s nothing extra super special about these except they are a Mickey Mouse shaped ice cream bar and do you really need another reason?  It’s just one of those iconic Disney World food items you need to have at least once!

Where to find : Various food carts throughout park

What would you add to the must eat in Magic Kingdom list?  What questions do you have about Disney World?

    All those things look yummy! I remember that turkey leg! So much fun to watch my kids eat those. Little tip: Don’t wait until it’s too late to get yours. The carts you buy these at close when the fireworks start. At least in the winter months we found this to be the case. Some sad faces when that happened. When I was a kid I lived in Orlando. We used to go to Disney quite a bit with family coming from up north. I loved these orange juice frozen ice cream like things. It was kind of a like a vanilla soft serve with frozen orange juice mixed in. Those were so awesome on really hot summer days. Disney is a lot different than it was when it first opened. There is so much more than there used to be every time I go back. You keep thinking what else can they add. Somehow those Disney people can always come up with something else.

    The last time I went to Magic Kingdom in Florida, we ate at the restaurant in the castle. It was quite the experience!!

    Somehow, those Mickey shaped bars taste better then any ordinary ice-cream bar. I think it’s just because once I’m in the ‘Disney Zone,’ everything seems fantastic.

    The Lafou’s brew looks interesting and tasty. I have been to Disneyland several times and Disney World once and have never tried the turkey leg! My friend and I always get a churro while we’re at Disneyland.

    Is it greedy if I ask for one of each, just to be sure I can say which one is best?

    That drink and cinnamon roll combo sounds divine! I’ve heard loads about the dole whip. I love pineapple so its right up my alley.
