Along with many of our tried and true favorites, we are happy to report that Animal Kingdom has quite the selection of new snacks, and we can’t wait to try them all!
Where to Find Holiday Snacks in Animal Kingdom
We love Animal Kingdom for the Holidays. With animal-inspired decorations, seasonal merchandise, the Holiday edition of Tree of Life and new holiday snacks, what’s not to like?. Both Savory and Sweet, we’ve written about the Best Snacks at Animal Kingdom before. And now there are seasonal treats to add the list. Let’s take a look at the new holiday snacks at Animal Kingdom, shall we?
Double Chocolate Peppermint Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich from Dino-Bite Snacks
Hand dipped vanilla ice cream with chocolate cookies, half dipped in swirled white and red chocolate and rolled into crushed candy canes makes this one of our top treats at Animal Kingdom right now. It’s large enough to share and can be a bit messy, but we promise it’s worth it.
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Mousse at Satu’li Canteen
We are big believers that Satu’li Canteen has the best quick service meals in Animal Kingdom. So it makes sense that they needed some new desserts there. This pumpkin cream cheese mousse comes with chocolate cookie crumbles, pumpkin sauce and cranberry flavored boba. We hope this one sticks around!
Simba Pretzel in Animal Kingdom
While it may seem pretty simple, if you love Mickey Pretzels, why not make it a Simba pretzel?! You are, in fact, in Animal Kingdom and we love a good theme! These Simba pretzels are offered throughout Animal Kingdom and don’t worry, cheese is available with this cute preztel.
Assorted Holiday Cookies from Zuri’s Sweets Shop
Looking for something sweet, adorable and portable? Why not head over to Zuri’s Sweets Shop for a fun selection of holiday cookies, themed cupcakes and beautifully designed caramel apples. They add new designs and styles all the time and we’ve been loving all the new treats we’ve seen popping up there!
White Chocolate Peppermint Cream Mousse from Satu’li Canteen
Another new, seasonal mousse that can be found at Satu’li Canteen in Animal Kingdom is the White Chocolate Peppermint Cream Mousse. This is topped with peppermint sauce and chocolate cookie crumbles. If you like mousse desserts, head to Pandora!
Pumpkin Pretzel from Thirsty River Bar
With cinnamon and maple flavors, this pretzel is perfect for a cozy treat, with all the flavors of the season. Grab it from Thirsty River Bar while you can!
Peppermint Bark Churros from Dino diner
We’ve heard great things about this new churro! Dipped in chocolate and rolled in crushed candy canes, this churro is a bit messy, but ultimately a fun, holiday treat. And if you’re a churro lover, we think this is a must.
Peppermint Cookies and Cream Milkshake from Tri-lo Bites
Cookies and cream milkshake with peppermint, topped with whipped cream, crushed candy cane and a mini candy cane for garnish, this can be found at Tri-lo Bites. So if you’re on the hunt for all things peppermint, Dinoloand is where its at!
Peppermint Soft Serve from Anandapur Ice Cream Truck
Not only does this soft serve look pretty with a beautiful mint green color, but its also super light and refreshing and not too minty. The best part is, that if you prefer, you can actually request to have it swirled with half chocolate for a delicious choclate peppermint flavor, perfect for the holiday season. Topped with red sprinkles, this oce cream cone looks as festive as it tastes!
Merry Menagerie Gingerbread Cupcake from Creature Comforts
Love the new Merry Menagerie at Discover Island in Animal Kingdom? We do too! Well, not only can you get a themed popcorn bucket and mug featuring these cuties, but now there’s also a new cupcake dedicated just to them! It’s a gingerbread cupcake with cream cheese icing, topped with crispy pearls and a little sugar polar bear! By far, the cutest treat on this list.
