5 Under $5: Disneyland Park Snacks

It’s no secret that I love to snack. There are many days where I end up grazing all day. Whether you’re like me and want to snack your way through the parks, or you’re just looking for a little something to tide you over until your next meal, here are a few of my favorite treats from Disneyland park (and they all are under $5):


1. Twists – Maurice’s Treats, Fantasyland
Introduced in 2013, there’s something for everyone at Maurice’s Treats. I love savory snacks, so my personal favorite is the Cheddar Garlic Bagel Twist. If you’re a fan of sweets, the chocolate and strawberry pastry twists are also delish.

2. Matterhorn Macaroon – Jolly Holiday Bakery Café, Main Street, U.S.A.
Jolly Holiday Bakery Café has many pastries that fall under or around $5, but I had to choose the Matterhorn Macaroon. I love coconut in everything, so of course this little confection – fashioned after one of the park’s icons (and one of my favorite roller coasters), Matterhorn Bobsleds – had to make the list.

3. Grilled Skewers – Bengal Barbecue, Adventureland
While all the skewers at Bengal Barbecue slide in under the $5 mark, my personal favorite is the Safari Skewer – the bacon-wrapped asparagus is completely irresistible.

4. Tigger Tail – Pooh’s Corner, Critter Country
My friends and fellow Disney Parks Blog authors Michelle Harker and Tyler Slater introduced me to the Tigger Tail, found at Pooh’s Corner during one of my trips to Disneyland park. I love these marshmallows, which are coated in caramel and orange sanding sugar before getting a thick drizzle of chocolate (completing Tigger’s signature stripes)!

5. Three Beignets from Mint Julep Bar, New Orleans Square
A New Orleans Square staple, these Mickey-shaped sweets are like little doughy clouds sent from heaven. Share with a friend, or eat all three yourself.

  • My top 5 when you come visit Walt Disney World –
    1) Beignets – Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory – Disney’s French Quarter Resort
    2) Zebra Domes – The Mara – Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
    3) Caramel Corn – Karamell-Kuche – Germany Pavilion – Epcot
    4) Cream Cheese Pretzel – Several locations including Lunching Pad – Tomorrowland – Magic Kingdom
    5) Always something new at the Writer’s Stop – Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    Wash it all down with an Island Cappuccino at Isle of Java – Disney’s Animal Kingdom

    • You’re making me hungry! I love Zebra Domes! 🙂

  • Churos are the first thing I go for!

  • Coke corner has gluten free cookies. It’s not the menu

  • If the line is short, we get beignets and mint julep after pirates. Bengal bbq is the least expensive lunch we’ve had at the park. Recently discovered tigger tails. And the chocolate covered pineapple spears.

  • Gluten free snacks?

  • Sadly none of these are vegan. Guess my family will have to stick with Dole Whips and granola bars from home.

  • I can’t wait to go too Disney land next month cause I’m going to try every thing

  • I can’t wait to go need to try cheese twist and skewer thank you

  • Beignets.

  • Where have I been? I’ve been to Disneyland over 20 times in the last ten years and have never had one of those things mentioned. Sounds like a reason for another trip!

  • Omg! The Cheddar Garlic Twist is the best thing. You can get it from the Carsland Cones food area also. Delicious.

  • Now I am just so hungry! Loved it.

  • Any ideas for some cheap gluten free snacks?

  • Good to know there are some lower priced food in the park. We’ve been paying about $30 bucks for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Then there are the snacks throughout the day. Needless to say, the bank account isn’t too happy with me. I’ll make sure to try a tigger tail next time I’m there.

  • Absolutely love the Beignets at the Mint Julep Bar!! The Grilled Skewers from Bengal Barbecue, Dole Whips, Popcorn, Churros and Mickey Shaped Chocolate covered Ice Cream are also favorites. I’ll definitely have to try the Cheddar Garlic Bagel Twist and the Matterhorn Macaroon, thanks!!

  • The Golden Horseshoe’s Ice Cream Float is just $4.99 and my favorite refreshment on a sunny, summer day.

  • I love the Safari Skewer from Bengal BBQ and churro bites from Cars Land!!

    • Both excellent choices! 🙂

  • Dole Whip and Ice Cream

    • I love Dole Whip!

  • One favorite “snack” that is under $5 is not a Disney-exclusive snack, such as the Tigger Tails are, but it is delicious and refreshing on a hot day – the pineapple spear!
    Also, during the last few months of the year I enjoy the gingerbread men cookies with chocolate-dipped mouse ears (also under $5).

    • I love pineapple spears too – especially if they’re coated in dark chocolate! 😉

  • Those all look like a delicious pick me up while at the park! The timing is great, as we will be there next month. I can’t wait to try a Tigger Tail!

    • Tigger Tails are fun fun fun fun fun! 🙂
