Magical Blogorail Green: Top Foods at Walt Disney World

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Green. Enjoy the ride as we share with you our top Disney foods.

Top Disney Foods.  Such a broad topic!  Can I choose just ONE food?  No.  So, I'm breaking it down into categories: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snacks, Appetizers and Desserts!

I have two favorites in this category: Beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter (see right!) and Cinnamon Rolls at Main Street Bakery.  Healthy?  Not so much.  Delicious?  YES!  In fact, you can get these breakfast items at any time, so they can become a snack or dessert too.

Besides grabbing a hamburger for lunch (which I do quite a bit at home and at WDW) I like to get a cup of corn-dog nuggets from Casey's Corner at the Magic Kingdom.  I don't eat corn-dogs anywhere else.  But, there's just something magical about these things and our family must have these at least once on each vacation!

This was the easiest category for me to choose!  Two restaurants immediately come to mind: Le Cellier and 'Ohana.  The steak at Le Cellier was one of the best I've ever had in my life.  It was melt in your mouth good!  The entire meal at 'Ohana (see left) was fabulous.  We loved everything about this meal- the food, the atmosphere, the ambiance, the servers and the view.  We will definitely be returning on our next trip.

Honestly, I could survive only on snacks while I'm at Walt Disney World!  There are so many amazing snacks to consume.  But to keep this from being way too long, I'll list my top three: Mickey Soft Pretzel (right), Main Street Pop Corn, and a Mickey Apple.  While all soft pretzels are good, if they are shaped like Mickey, they are extra good.  All pop corn is good too, but if it's from Main Street, it's just that much better.  The Mickey caramel apples are my top snack though.  I love the "healthy" apple topped with the melty caramel and chocolate- the perfect combination for a snack!

In this category, both items come from the World Showcase in Epcot: Pretzel Bread from Le Cellier in Canada (left) and Egg Rolls from Lotus Blossom in China.  The pretzel bread is to die for!  Along with being a chocoholic, I'm a carb lover too and this bread hits the spot!  I would love to be able to replicate this bread at home.  These Egg Rolls really aren't anything special, but they are on my list of favorites and a must have while walking around the lagoon.

Many of the restaurants have amazing desserts on the menu, but I usually eat too much at dinner and don't have room for dessert!  But, my two favorite desserts can be found in numerous locations around Walt Disney World and Disneyland: Chocolate cupcakes (cotton top tamarin cupcake from Animal Kingdom to the right) and Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich.  I'm a sucker for anything chocolate, but a chocolate cupcake with white icing and Mickey sprinkles tops my cupcake list.  The Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich is a must have when we visit an ice cream cart.

So there it is.  My list of favorite foods at Walt Disney World.

What foods top your list?  I'd love to hear in the comments!
