Meaty Treats at the Magic Kingdom

Share This!

We spend a lot of time here covering the latest cupcakes and candy treats at Walt Disney World. But sometimes what you really need to get you through the day is a savory, protein-based snack instead of a giant ball of sugar (not that there’s anything wrong with that). There are also many folks with dietary issues that make meat an imperative or just a more appealing option than something wholly sweet.

Westward Ho Refreshments, a food stand in Frontierland, offers a menu of chicken, corn dogs, or candied bacon on a stick that all hit the I-need-protein spot. All come with a side of chips, but you can decline those if you want. The corn dog is a decent, if unremarkable, version of this classic theme park item. The glaze on the chicken skewer has a lovely, spicy kick. The bacon is terrific for folks who like pork belly, but might be on the fatty side if you’re not used to something so rich.

    I’d love a review of the “cold brew coffee” on the menu. Is it just Joffrey’s over ice or real cold brew? Better or worse than whatever SBUX is serving? Does it stand on its own or does it need the sugary flavored syrup added to it? Caffeine-starved minds need to know.

      Sorry, not real cold brew. It’s just iced coffee with a marketing manager. The only actual cold brew in the MK is at Starbucks.
