Disney’s Hollywood Studios has made some major adjustments to the park in the last few years, and with those additions, we also have some tasty new treats to feature! The opening of Toy Story Land brought us Woody’s Lunch Box, that presents 2 items on our list worth trying, as well as some classics throughout the park that have held strong as fan favorites over the years. Here are some of our favorite choices for the best snacks at Hollywood Studios.
Lunch Box Tart (Toy Story Land)
Somewhere in the backyard, Andy dropped his lunchbox and it opened into one of the best quick service dining options in all of Walt Disney World. Our first selection that we have chosen as one of our favorites snacks is the Lunch Box Tart. Shaped somewhat like a pop-tart, this very sweet, very flavorful dessert is a great treat after enjoying the fun rides and attractions of Toy Story Land. Currently, there are two different kinds of tarts being offered: chocolate hazelnut filling with maple fondant and bacon crumbles, or lemon filling with blueberry frosting. Both treats are worth a try, with scrumptious flavors that will send your taste buds to infinity and beyond!
Fried Onion Straws (Rosie’s All-American Cafe)
When we think of snacks, we not only go for the sweet stuff, but for the savory as well. Ready for an appetizer type option to satisfy your cravings until your next meal? Then take a visit to Rosie’s All-American Cafe on Sunset Boulevard! Served with Texas Petal sauce, this generous portion of fried onion straws will certainly fill the hunger void. Rosie’s also features an extensive menu of Allergy-Friendly items, with a great variety of items for both kids and adults.
Peanut Butter Crunch Cupcake (Trolley Car Cafe/ Starbucks)
Once known as the Butterfinger Cupcake, this tasty dessert is quickly becoming a guest favorite in Hollywood Studios. The cupcake is chocolate, with a center of rich fudge sauce. Topped with a light, peanut butter buttercream frosting and finished with chocolate, peanut butter crunch, this treat will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. A great way to either start or finish your day at Hollywood Studios!
Totchos (Toy Story Land)
For a less sweet, more filling treat in Toy Story Land, consider Totchos! This here dish, inspired by the Old West and Sheriff Woody himself, is actually listed as an entree choice on the menu at Woody’s Lunch Box, but most guests find it to be a great “in-between” time meal. In this dish, Potato Barrels (tater tots) are topped with beef and bean chili, queso with tomatoes, corn chips and a dollop of sour cream and green onion. All the makings of cowboy’s best meal!
Popcorn and Souvenir Bucket (Various Locations)
One of the best treats available throughout the parks, that actually presents one of the best values during your entire stay too, is Disney’s Street Cart Popcorn. Here’s the deal… on your first day at a Disney Park, buy the Souvenir Bucket (usually around $10) filled with popcorn. Throughout the day, you can fill up your bucket for only $2.00 per refill. Use the bucket from park to park; always only $2.00 to refill it! Disney also sells specialty popcorn buckets, character or seasonal offerings, and while they are more expensive, you can still refill those buckets for only $2.00 as well. If your group loves popcorn, this is definitely a great option to share as a snack together, and to also have the ability to save some money in the process. If you are using the dining plan, you can use a snack credit for a refill, but you might want to save it for other things that you find throughout the park that might be more expensive.
Bavarian Pretzel (Baseline Tap House, Grand Avenue)
Easily described as the best pretzel in all of Disney World, this snack option goes great with some of the brewery options at Baseline Tap House. Stop in for a seat at the bar and enjoy the pretzel or other light snack offerings for a break from the Florida heat, or just as a meet up with friends. Served with Beer-Cheese Fondue and Spicy Mustard sauce, the plate-sized menu item is a “must-try” when visiting Hollywood Studios.
Blue and Green Milk (Galaxy’s Edge, Milk Stand)
The newest land at Disney World, Galaxy’s Edge also has one of the top snacks at Hollywood Studios with the introduction of Blue and Green Milk. If you’re unfamiliar with Star Wars, this is a take on the milk that Luke Skywalker drinks in the original Star Wars (also drinks it in The Last Jedi) and Disney is hoping this is their version of Butterbeer that you can find at Universal Studios in their Diagon Alley from Harry Potter area. Of the two milks, we liked the blue better than the green but both are good! You can also get it spike with rum which if you’re so inclined actually gives the drink some flavor. On a hot day in Hollywood Studios it’s a nice and cool treat. This is a popular snack option so be prepared to stand in line or get there early to try it.
A little bit of the classics, a taste of some things new. Although not best known for its food options, Hollywood Studios is definitely bringing some new items to the table that are getting our attention. With the addition of new lands, we will continue to see more treats and snacks become available as the park expands. We’re excited to sample all of the new offerings and look forward to bringing you the best reviews of upcoming guest favorites.
