The Best Savory Snacks at Each Walt Disney World Theme Park
Food, glorious food! Is there any place in the world better for snacking than Walt Disney World? As a home to Mickey Bars, Dole Whip, churros, and more, there’s a huge variety of sweet treats. But sometimes you might want something a bit savory. Here’s our top choices for each Walt Disney World theme park for savory snacks.
Magic Kingdom: Potstickers and Spring Rolls
Okay, I know we said top snack, but choosing between these two would be like choosing our favorite child. The potstickers found at Sunshine Tree Terrace and the spring rolls found at the nearby Adventureland Spring Roll Cart make wonderful snacks. The potstickers are crispy on the edges and chewy with a savory filling. Although flavors may vary, our favorite is the cheeseburger spring roll — it’s two great foods that taste great together!
EPCOT: Barbacoa Empanadas and Germany’s Pretzel
I know, another tie — but can you really decide between Germany’s as-big-as-your-head pretzel and Mexico’s simply divine barbacoa empanadas? I suggest you try both and see if you can determine a favorite for yourself. If Germany’s pretzel cart isn’t open, you can get the pretzel at Sommerfest (Germany’s quick-service location). The barbacoa empanada can be found at Choza de Margarita outside the Mexico Pavilion.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Totchos
This one wasn’t open for debate when I asked around. Totchos. TOTchos. TOTCHOS! Found at Woody’s Lunch Box in Toy Story Land, these are tater tots (I’m sorry, “potato barrels”) that are then covered in beef and bean chili, shredded cheese, queso, tomatoes, corn chips, sour cream, and green onions. Oh, and did I mention there’s a breakfast bowl version with brisket gravy and scrambled eggs? You can never start snacking too early at Walt Disney World!
Animal Kingdom: Buffalo Chicken Chips
Located at Trilo-Bites in Dinoland USA is a small kiosk that serves primarily ice cream concoctions. But on the menu, they do have one savory bite — their Buffalo Chicken Chips. The chips are crispy, with just a hint of flavorful spice. The chicken has a not-too-gloppy Buffalo sauce and there are chopped tomatoes, celery, and a creamy dressing for contrast.

Thank you for your helpful and entertaining trips. So tickled to hear that you homeschool your daughter! Although our sons are grown men, we homeschooled them from the beginning and their favorite special treat was visiting WDW twice a year. It was always a research project and they eagerly read every tour guide and tip book on the market. Planning was thrilling plus they studied the possibilities like they were getting ready for battle. We stayed at all the major onsite hotels plus many of the nicer traditional resorts. The Treehouse Villas were delightful and they always loved the peacocks and peahens wandering around. Our boys learned economics, history, science, languages, and most importantly, public manners. How we miss those years! I wish you many great memories “living the dream”!
“…tater tots (I’m sorry, “potato barrels”) that are then covered in beef and bean chili, shredded cheese, QUEST, tomatoes, corn chips, sour cream, and green onions.”
What in the world is “quest”? Usually I can figure things out from context, but this one has me stumped. Thanks!
I’m going to guess Julia’s spell check doesn’t recognize “queso”. I know mine did not!
Yep — three times I tried changing it to q-u-e-s-o, and all times it changed it back when I saved. It *should* be fixed now.
