With the opening of TRON Lightcycle/Run right around the corner, here’s some exciting news for the Disney foodies out there…a brand-new snack kiosk – Energy Bytes is also on the horizon. Disney recently shared the menu for Energy Bytes which will also be located in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom. While I will continue to satisfy my hunger pains and 10-year-old palate at nearby Lunching Pad with my favorite standard-issue Disney Hot Dog and Coca-Cola Slushy, for all of you adventurous eaters out there, Energy Bytes should be a refreshing new dining option with a futuristic twist.
If you’re in Magic Kingdom early in the day and looking for breakfast on your way to the virtual que for TRON Lightcycle/Run, Energy Bytes will be offering Chocolate Cake Doughnut Holes topped with Mocha sauce. And, if you need a little caffeine to get going plus even more of a chocolate fix, why not wash those doughnut holes down with a Joffrey’s Cold Brew Coffee also topped with Mocha sauce?
If sweets aren’t your thing, how about some dumplings? Energy Bytes will feature two different types of savory “Digital Dumplings.”
First up, there’s the Buffalo Chicken Digital Dumplings which combine chicken dumplings, blue cheese powder, and cayenne pepper broth.
Or, if you prefer beef, there’s the Beef & Broccoli Digital Dumplings which feature beef dumplings, broccoli pesto, and ginger-soy broth.
And to wrap up your snack, try the Strawberry IceOform which includes strawberry ice cream mochi, graham crackers, and cheesecake foam for dessert.
For beverages, Energy Bytes will offer the typical sodas and bottled waters plus a frozen Watermelon Refresher made with yuzu and ginger, perfect for those hot, sunny Florida days!
What do you think of the Energy Bytes menu? Anything you’re excited to sample? Please leave a comment; I would love to hear from you!
One of the things that I think Disney does best in the way of food is their snacks! They have so many wonderful snacks and treats available that some days when I’m there I don’t even eat a meal! I just eat four or five of their delicious snacks throughout the day. So without further ado here is my list of the best Disney World snacks!
Dole WhipWithout a doubt this is one of the top snacks at Disney World. If you have never had a Dole whip it is a frozen soft serve dessert. They come in the classic pineapple flavor as well as orange or vanilla. The orange flavor is my absolute favorite! It has a light citrus taste and is nice and sweet. You can even get them in a swirl or a float! The most popular place to pick one up is at the Aloha Isle in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom. On a hot summer day, the line for these can be very long, but definitely worth it!
Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream BarAnother iconic treat and fan favorite is the Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bar. This treat is vanilla ice cream shaped like a Mickey Mouse head dipped in chocolate and served on a stick. It is very similar to a Dove bar that you can get at home, but made way better simply because it is in the shape of Mickey! These treats are so popular that you can now get shirts, magnets and pins to declare your love for these yummy snacks! You can get one of these ice cream bars all over the parks from many of the cart vendors.
Turkey Legs Now this is a not a personal favorite of mine, because I can’t stand to eat meat that still resembles the animal, but they are definitely one of the top snacks at Disney World. From what I hear these turkey legs have great flavor and are not at all dry. You will see people wandering all over gnawing on these things! If you are in the mood for a high protein snack, you can find these being sold at several of the cart vendors throughout the parks.
PopcornAnother one of my personal favorites is the popcorn. Imagine the best movie theatre popcorn you’ve ever had only better and then you’ll have Disney World popcorn. They go through so much of it, it always seems fresh and warm. It’s not overly salty, with the perfect amount of butter and crunch, now that is a great snack! The large size is sold in a cute seasonal bucket with lid so you can continue to graze on it all day. Like most of the other snacks, popcorn can be found at several of the cart vendors throughout the parks. One of my favorite stands is at the cart just inside the Magic Kingdom.
Fancy CupcakesThis is my all time favorite Disney World snack! I love the wide variety of flavors of cupcakes that they have at Disney World. They have simple ones like chocolate and vanilla to exotic ones that contain all different kinds of fillings and toppings. A couple of my favorites are the White Chocolate Elephant Cupcake which is dark chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream frosting topped with toasted coconut and the Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake which is a yellow cake, topped with a whipped cream type frosting filled with Grand Marnier soaked strawberries. My kids love the Oreo Bon Bon Cupcake featuring yellow cake topped with a cookies n’ cream buttercream frosting, Oreo crumbles and two Oreos to resemble Mickey’s ears! These gourmet cupcakes can be found throughout the parks and resort hotels. One of the places for the best selection is the Boardwalk Bakery at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn.
There you have it folks, some of the best snacks in Disney World! Makes my hungry just thinking about them!
