In the midst of transforming into a toy in Toy Story Land; using the “Force” while exploring Star Wars Launch Bay; and holding on for dear life on Twilight Zone Tower of Terror – chances are you’ll easily work up an appetite while visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Check out these 10 best snacks you don’t want to pass on!
1 – Cupcake at The Trolley Car Cafe
If there is any place on Walt Disney World property to try a cupcake – we find Hollywood Studios to be that place! Whether you are doing a Cupcake Crawl or simply just need one cupcake, you’ll be able to find multiple cupcakes to enjoy throughout the park. Our first stop for cupcakes is typically at The Trolley Car Café so we can get some Starbucks coffee to go along with it. Specialty Cupcakes change regularly. Previously, Hollywood Studios had a stunning Toy Story Land cupcake as well as a couple of Star Wars themed and Olaf cupcakes. Be sure to stop in to try the latest cupcake on your next visit.
2 – Lunch Box Tart
Toy Story Land is the popular place to be in Hollywood Studios at the present time. In between riding along on Slinky Dog Dash and taking a spin on Alien Swirling Saucers, keep your stomach from growling with a delicious Lunch Box Tart located at Woody’s Lunch Box. The two Lunch Box Tart options are Raspberry and Chocolate-Hazelnut. We personally favor the Raspberry Tart for its sweet marmalade and strawberry fondant coating. We will say, however, the maple fondant and candied bacon on the Chocolate-Hazelnut is also delicious. We also like the price point of the Lunch Box Tart at a little over $4.
3 – Fried Onion Straws
If you crave that salty, fried flavor – look no further! We absolutely love picking up the Fried Onion Straws from Rosie’s All-American Café to scarf down while spending a day at Hollywood Studios. Stroll along while dipping your fried onions in the yummy Texas petal sauce. Just be sure to snag a drink while you’re there as this one does make you thirsty!
4 – Churro with Chocolate Sauce
Because what trip to Walt Disney World is complete without a churro… or two?! You can’t go wrong with having a churro for a snack. We especially love how easy churros are to grab on the go. The cinnamon and sugar along with the chocolate dipping sauce will easily make you want to go back for seconds. Head to Anaheim Produce for your delightful churro.
5 – Potato Barrels
The tarts mentioned above aren’t the only snacks to be desired at Woody’s Lunch Box. There is this entrée called “Totchos” which are potato barrels on overload (beef and bean chili, cheese, queso, tomatoes, corn chips, sour cream, green onions). It is fantastic but doesn’t fall too well into the snack category. It’s definitely more of a meal. If you want a snack option, however, that will give you a similar taste, go for the Potato Barrels. You don’t get all the extra stuff on top, but you’ll still get your fill of potato goodness.
6 – Ice Cream Sandwich
At Disney, cookies and ice cream can count as a snack instead of a dessert! Two cookies with an ice cream flavor of your choice sandwiched in between awaits at Hollywood Scoops on Sunset Blvd. Ice cream flavors include chocolate, vanilla, orange sherbet, strawberry, cookies n’ cream, mint-chocolate chip (our fave!), and butter pecan. This is an especially fun snack for young ones to enjoy that may not be able to join your travel party for the nearby attractions like Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
7 – Bavarian Pretzel
There is the beloved Mickey Pretzel to be found throughout the park, but then there’s the Bavarian Pretzel not to be missed at Baseline Tap House. This pretzel is wonderfully filling for a snack and comes with a tasty beer cheese fondue and spicy mustard. The best way to enjoy this pretzel is to pair it with one of BaseLine Tap House’s unique and refreshing beers. The perfect duo!
8 – Peanut Butter & Jelly Milk Shake
Peanut butter and jelly is a great snack! It’s even better however when it’s combined in a milkshake! While we were super unsure when trying Tune-In Lounge’s non-alcoholic Peanut Butter and Jelly Milk Shake, we must say the flavor is one we were surprisingly pleased with. This is an especially great snack option if you are craving something cooler on a warm Hollywood Studios day. Have a reservation at 50’s Prime Time Café? You can also order one of these while seated in the restaurant.
9 – Cookies n’ Cream Funnel Cake
We can’t help but wonder if whoever created the funnel cake had any idea it would be transformed into so many tasty options. Hollywood Studios has the regular funnel cake option, as well as a strawberry funnel cake… but now they are offering a Cookies ‘n Cream funnel cake too! This funnel cake comes with soft-serve vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, crumbled cookies all over, and two full cookies to make Mickey ears for an extra cute snack. Head on over to Oasis Canteen and get ready for a snack you’ll be ready to Instagram about.
10 – AT-AT Popcorn Bucket
Much like the specialty cupcakes at Hollywood Studios we mentioned above, Hollywood Studios is fantastic for their unique selections of specialty popcorn buckets. Our favorite popcorn bucket currently is the AT-AT Popcorn Bucket available at most all of the popcorn stands throughout the park. The Star Wars fans are going crazy over this awesome bucket! While they can get pricey, it’s a fun souvenir to take home.
