Calories don’t count at Disney right?!? Well, you can least justify the extra indulgences from all of the walking that you will definitely be doing while on your vacation.

Everyone loves a good churro, right? You are given delicious short churros to dip in a tasty chocolate sauce. It is a perfect, familiar favorite! You will find the location across from Splash Mountain in Frontierland on the walk toward Adventureland. It is tasty!
10 – Tiramisu – Tony’s Town Square, Main Street USA
Tiramisu is a standard Italian dessert and this restaurant does it right. I just love all of the chocolate shavings on top, too. Not only that when it is served the plate has an adorable Lady and Tramp sharing their spaghetti etched in chocolate on the plate. You can’t beat the little details combined with a delicious taste. The location is right at the front of the park so it is extremely easy to get to as well.
9 – Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Chocolate Hazelnut Spread – Sleepy Hollow, Liberty Square
This is definitely one of my favorites. Sometimes I even have this one for lunch and call it a health food since it has fresh fruit! The waffles are made fresh there at the location, and they are delicious. Then they top the fresh waffle with the Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread and then top that with fresh fruit including bananas, strawberries, and blueberries. If you haven’t had one, you must try it on your next trip!
