The BEST snacks at Epcot are usually the ones you least expect. Lacking the fanfare of fancy wall-matching treats you’ll find at Magic Kingdom, Epcot still offers some tried and true treats we seek out every time we visit. Keep in mind that Epcot offers a World Showcase of culturally authentic foods and top-notch restaurants. Add in annual festivals that bring more food and drink options than you could imagine and you’re probably left wondering, “What Snacks does Epcot actually have?”
The Best Epcot Snacks and Where to Find Them
While we definitely feel like sometimes our trips to Epcot are just about finding food to eat, pulling together this list was a little tough! Especially if you normally only travel during festival seasons. Thankfully, the Epcot snacks in this list are offered year-round. So regardless of when you visit, you can plan on grabbing something delicious.
Pretzel Bread Pudding | Sommerfest World Showcase- Germany
Found in the Germany area in World Showcase, this pretzel bread pudding is covered in caramel and sweet icing and makes the perfect cozy treat, you would expect to find in Germany.
Karmell-Kuche | World Showcase- Germany
There is nothing like the homemade-in-front-you Werthers popcorn at Epcot. Karamell-Kuche makes our Top 10 Things to Do at Epcot List, and for good reason. It’s one of our favorite places to visit every single time we visit. At most, we just stand in line wondering why we even bothered to eat anything else that day. Sure, there are tons of other snacks in the Karmell-Kuche shop, all worth your attention. But the popcorn has way more accolades on the whole. Covered in fresh caramel, the Werthers popcorn you get by waiting in line (not the pre-bagged kind on the shelf) is the perfect nighttime snack after a long day. We also love that it’s portable to bring on the bus or plane and always find ourselves buying some extra to take back home with us. Can be purchased with snack credits if you’re on the Disney Dining Plan. And makes the perfect high-protein breakfast snack if you’re skipping your morning meal.
Japan Cart | World Showcase- Japan
Cool and creamy, this large bowl of ice covered in fruit syrup and cream is a staple at Japanese festivals. Considered the “healthy” snack choice this dessert snack is actually more than just shaved ice. The combinations of flavors and cream make it slightly heartier than you’d expect. Plus, we love that it helps keep us hydrated and cool on those hot Florida days. Definitely more than just a pretty dessert, there’s a reason why the Kakigori cart always has a line. If you haven’t tried this one yet, get it on your list. We also love watching the Japanese Drummers while we hang out and enjoy this snack.
Fife and Drum | World Showcase-America
Ahhh, the American Dream. As one of the first snacks we ever tried at Walt Disney World the America Dream tops our list of must-try snacks. Yes, it’s simply blue raspberry and strawberry slushie with vanilla ice cream in the middle, served in a cup. But if you’ve ever been to a fair or a festival you know the claim that Creamsicles have on the childhood psyche. This is truly the perfect summertime drink and is only offered at Fife and Drum. Completely worth a snack credit. We’ve added this one to our Best Kid-Friendly Drinks at Walt Disney World list just because it’s that good!!! In fact, we always have cash on us for this drink just in case the machines are down. Because that did happen one time and, without cash, we were devastated.
Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich
L’Artisan des Glaces | World Showcase- France
Another go-to snack in Epcot is the amazing Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich in France. Lots of variations on ice cream flavor and macaron choice make this extra special. We love that it’s portable, and not too sweet. As an authentic snack, you’ll only find in Epcot France this treat is perfect. Not too big or small and won’t ruin dinner. A little fancier than a Mickey Bar, be sure to take pics of this treat, as it comes in fun tissue Parisian Newspaper wrapping too. And if you’re looking a
Croissant Donuts Cronuts
Refreshment Port | World Showcase Plaza
If you haven’t heard of croissant donuts, or cronuts, it’s simply a donut that is made with layers of pastry and then covered in sugar. How can this not be good, right? The best Croissant donuts on Disney property are found at the Refreshment Port. They do sometimes have variations on flavors with fruit or chocolate. And during Epcot festivals, you can sometimes also find these at Test Track in lots of delicious flavors in Future World near Mission Space. These little masterpieces are pretty much just dough and sugar, so they don’t really constitute a meal of any kind. But if you’ve grabbed your coffee and are looking for something to nibble while you stroll through Epcot, this could be it.
Chips and Guac
Choza de Margarita | World Showcase- Mexico
If you’re looking for a quick filling snack while waiting for a late dinner, head to Mexico in the World Showcase to visit this newer food cart, Choza de Margarita. The guac and chips are fresh, light, and portable. If you’re looking for something a little healthier that still feels like a treat, we like this snack best for days filled with lots of walking. We love this non-dessert snack at Disney World that could also double as a light lunch.
Vivoli il Gelato | World Showcase – Italy
This little hidden Mickey float is a dark espresso with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a cookie straw. We just love the rich hot coffee vs. cold ice cream flavors here. You also get whipped cream and cute nilla wafer-like cookie ears. Definitely an overlooked Epcot treat and one of the Best Coffees at Walt Disney World.
Joy of Tea | World Showcase – China
You can get pork or vegetable egg rolls at Joy of Tea and are the perfect treat if you’re looking for something light! You get two and these are perfect as a grab-and-go snack at Epcot.
Regal Eagle Smokehouse Craft Drafts and BBQ | World Showcase- America
One of our favorite new Disney Quick Service Restaurants, the Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts and BBQ has a banana pudding cup similar to the one that the famous Magnolia Bakery in New York makes. It’s definitely worth a try! It combines bananas, custard, and nilla wafer cookies. Definitely, a treat if you’re looking for something light and sweet.
Ham and Swiss Croissant
Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie | World Showcase – France
Okay, so we’ll be honest, we love everything at Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie. But this ham and swiss croissant is to die for! The pastry is super flaky and the cheese is perfectly melted. It’s large enough to keep you full but light enough to not make you feel weighed down. This is super comforting as a snack and works even better as a breakfast. absolutely one of our favorite Snacks. We get it at least once every time we visit.
