Welcome to the first post of several in my series of “Where in Walt Disney World Can I Find?” articles! Today, I will focus on drinks and snacks that can be found at Walt Disney World. The series will include, among other things, “Where in Walt Disney World” you can find great counter service dining options, table service restaurants, souvenirs, and much more!
My family is what I refer to as “seasoned” travelers to Walt Disney World with over twenty trips under our belt so we’ve seen and done a lot. However, The Happiest Place on Earth is constantly expanding and making additions so it’s not surprising that we still find ourselves discovering new drinks, foods and experiences to enjoy. It is my hope that this series of articles will help both first timers and frequent travelers find something that they will want to try on their trip to Walt Disney World.
If you’re on the Disney Dining Plan, you”ll be happy to hear that some of the items listed are included as snack credits on the dining plan. Simply look for the purple DP symbol on the menu or ask a Disney cast member if it is included.
Members of the Magical DIStractions team often write about our dining experiences in the Walt Disney World theme parks, Resorts, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach water parks, and Downtown Disney. You may notice that some of the drinks and snacks listed here have pictures and/or links to those articles. All you have to do is simply click on the link and it will take you to the full review. Easy as that!
