Hollywood Studios has a status as being the worst ‘meals park’ for counter service eating places at Walt Disney World. As such, you would possibly discover be higher off grazing on varied savory snacks and decadent desserts reasonably than sitting down for a full meal.
On this publish, we scour Disney’s Hollywood Studios seeking the very best snacks, and share with you the heavier, shareable choices that you may order in lieu of a correct counter service meal. Going this route the primary half of the day after which doing a sit-down dinner (there are literally a trio of desk service eating places we like at DHS) is a fairly sound touring technique.
One factor I ought to warning is that the menus at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are always in flux. With Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on the best way, I’m anticipating extra adjustments as Disney makes an attempt ‘upgrades’ all through the park (we’ve already seen the primary of those at Backlot Categorical).
To not point out, there will likely be no scarcity of snack choices inside Star Wars land. Whereas Walt Disney World may cellphone it in, understanding any culinary concoctions will promote like hotcakes as long as they’re “Instagram-worthy” my suspicion is that the meals & beverage groups will work to make objects style good, as they’ve been salivating on the successes of things in Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Principally, that is all a long-winded means of claiming that there’s an expiration date on this publish, and it’s most likely proper round August 29, 2019. I’ll examine again after that to see how correct this stays (and share a hyperlink to the inevitable sequel), however it’s simply one thing you must know when you’re planning a Walt Disney World journey as we speak for September 2019 or later.
Talking of later within the yr, it’s additionally price noting that the vacation season brings with it a ‘bonus’ spherical of snacks, a few of that are fairly good. In the event you’re planning a November or December go to, complement this publish with our Christmas Snacks at Disney’s Hollywood Studios publish.
With that stated, listed below are the snacks we at present take pleasure in probably the most at Disney’s Hollywood Studios…
Carrot Cake Cookie – The Third to Final O.G. of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios snack scene, this superb deal with predates half the sights within the park (most likely–I didn’t really do a depend). Beforehand a Disney fan hidden gem discovered at Author’s Cease, it has since moved to the Trolley Automobile Cafe Starbucks on the entrance of the park.
Like a high-quality wine, the Carrot Cake Cookie has gotten higher with age. When it first moved to Trolley Automobile Cafe, it began being made with thicker cookies, which might’ve been an improve however for it throwing the ever-important cream cheese to cookie ratio all out of whack. It was the largest controversy of its time, making stroller-gate appear like a minor matter.
In a daring transfer, Walt Disney World invited distinguished scientists from all around the world to return and work on an answer. Thankfully, all of them confirmed up. Realizing the gravity of the state of affairs, they labored around the clock, endeavoring to discover a daring repair. They did, and the tip result’s thick, moist cookies with a beneficiant layer of wealthy cream cheese that enhances the sweetness of the carrot cake taste completely. This is among the few absolute must-order snacks at Walt Disney World, and you really want to style it to imagine it.
Butterfinger Cupcake – Now know because the PB Crunch Cupcake (presumably as a consequence of trademark makes use of?), this has been one other mainstay of the Walt Disney World snack scene for so long as we’ve been visiting Walt Disney World as adults. It was initially a huge cupcake at Starring Roles, and consuming it alone was virtually a herculean problem.
At this time’s model is discovered on the Trolley Automobile Cafe Starbucks. It’s smaller and dearer, however each bit as scrumptious. Personally, I’ve turn out to be apprehensive of most cupcakes at Walt Disney World for the reason that measurement to cost ratio is not favorable, however this stays a snack we advocate with tepid enthusiasm.
Chocolate Peanut Butter & Jelly Milk Shake – Right here’s the ultimate member in our trio of basic Disney’s Hollywood Studios snacks (all of which, I imagine, really date again to when this park was the Disney-MGM Studios). Out there at Tune-In Lounge, the bar aspect of 50’s Prime Time Cafe, that is one among our go-to desserts on scorching days.
The traditional model of that is the PB&J Milkshake. Nevertheless, due to the miracles of contemporary expertise, chocolate will be added to essentially up the ante. Each style just about as described, which is to say, incredible. I personally favor the chocolate-added model, which might be what it’d style like when you blended vanilla ice cream, jelly, and Reese’s cups. Okay, maybe that description doesn’t make it sound incredible, however it’s.
Something at Baseline Faucet Home – In typical Disney’s Hollywood Studios vogue, we cross the baton from the previous guard to the brand new one, beginning with the bar within the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge ready room…err…Grand Avenue.
Baseline Faucet Home has a wonderful collection of beer, a chill out of doors seating space, and a severely underrated trio of meals objects within the Bavarian Pretzel (greatest pretzel at Walt Disney World), California Cheese and Charcuterie Plate (an awesome worth and good for snacking on whereas ingesting), and the Espresso-rubbed Rib-eye Steak Puff with Olive Salad (someplace between a snack and entree; it’s deliciously decadent).
Key Lime Pie on a Stick – This appears to be the most recent meals pattern at Walt Disney World, with three completely different key lime pies on a stick at present obtainable. Whereas we will’t endorse the pattern, it is a tasty deal with. The important thing lime pie has a extremely zesty and tart taste, packing a number of punch in a comparatively small dessert. The white chocolate exterior doesn’t do a ton for me, however it’s nonetheless a great dessert, general.
Honorable point out right here to the Nom Nom Cookie, which is big and smooth within the middle. It’s virtually like a cookie pie. Nevertheless, it doesn’t maintain a candle to the Carrot Cake Cookie, so it doesn’t make the checklist.
S’extra French Toast Sandwich – As with Baseline Faucet Home, there are additionally three various things at Woody’s Lunch Field in Toy Story Land that we expect are price mentioning. First up is from the breakfast menu, for these wanting to begin your snacking a bit earlier within the day.
It’s thought-about an entree, however right here’s the outline: marshmallow and chocolate ganache stuffed in grilled custard soaked brioche encrusted with graham cracker crumbs. That’s what we name an “solely on trip breakfast entree.” As you may think, it’s powerfully candy, and can result in an intense sugar rush adopted by a crash a couple of hours later. It’s positively a wise concept to deal with this as a snack and cut up it.
Chocolate-Hazelnut Lunch Field Tart – You’ll additionally discover this Pop Artwork-esque deal with at Woody’s Lunch Field, and it’s top-of-the-line snack values at Walt Disney World.
The pastry right here is clearly of a better, flakier high quality and the maple unfold coupled with the Nutella inside is to die for. It may use about 10000% extra bacon on prime (higher but, simply serve it with a pound of bacon on the aspect), however that’s a minor quibble for an in any other case wonderful dessert.
Totchos – One other merchandise at Woody’s Lunch Field, and one other factor that Disney views as an entree, however you shouldn’t. These are potato barrels lined with beef and slathered with bean chili, shredded cheese and signature queso with tomatoes, corn chips, bitter cream, and a sprinkle of inexperienced onions.
Scrumptious and wholesome…or not. These are a bit just like the savory model of the Kitchen Sink over at Seashores & Cream, besides smaller and with the entire flavors working in live performance. One of many extra sizable snacks on this checklist, that is one to separate between a pair individuals when you’re beginning to get hungry however nonetheless have a couple of hours till your dinner Advance Eating Reservation.
That covers it for our really useful snacks at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It’s a brief checklist (for now), however it packs a robust punch. Just a few of the objects are iconic, must-order treats, reasonably than a sea of ‘good however not wonderful’ objects you would possibly discover elsewhere. That’s fairly per Disney’s Hollywood Studios, usually. There aren’t a ton of sights, however the top-tier headliners are among the many greatest in all of Walt Disney World.
