Last but certainly not least, we need to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios to experience their tasty but cheapy snacks! Hollywood Studios is just plain FUN. Lots of shows, a few of my absolute favorite rides (ahem…Rock n Roll and Toy Story!) and while we are running back and forth through the park we work up quite an appetite. This park is quite small, and while they have a handful of the snack kiosks around the park like all other parks, there aren’t as many snack choices here.
One stop we usually visit is on Sunset Boulevard, on our way down to ride the famous Aerosmith coaster, is the Anaheim Produce. They have a good array of snacks, and even some healthy options, all for under $4. Pineapple cups, mixed fruit or grapes, fruit and nut trail mix, apple slices or carrot/celery sticks can all be found for $3-$4. You can get a pretzel for for $3.99 and add cheese sauce another $1. You can also get the yummy frozen lemonade for $3.99.
Also close by Anaheim Produce is Starring Rolls. They sell a variety of pastries and other goodies. The sweet treats (like pastries, cinnamon rolls, and desserts) run from $.99 all the way to $4. They even sell bagels and cream cheese for $2.29. They have a sweet deal where you get two mini pastries and a medium coffee or juice or soda for $4.79.
The snack choices inside the Fantasmic Theater are very important! If you haven’t eaten dinner yet, then you’ll surely be ready for a nosh or two. The Hollywood Hills theater sells frozen strawberry lemonade (YUM) for $3.50. They also sell assorted chips for $3 and you can get nachos and cheese for $4.35. Cotton candy for the kids will run you $4.25 and popcorn costs $4.50. They also have a ton of ice cream and bar treat options that run anywhere from $3.35 to $4. Grab a snack and wait for Mickey to save the day!
As I said earlier, throughout the whole park you can find the snack carts or kiosks that sell the popular Disney favorites like popcorn (about $3), Mickey’s ice cream bar ($3.50), Frozen bananas (also $3.50), pretzels ($4), etc. There’s always one on the main avenue, Hollywood Boulevard, and other popular thoroughfares in DHS.
That’s a wrap (hee hee) for the cheapest snacks in the parks. What is your favorite, must-have snack in WDW? Mine is the frozen lemonades, Dave loves the frozen bananas and Ashley loves…well, ALL snacks, I think! We leave for our trip in 2 weeks and I am excited to try new snack items when we go, especially the fare in the New Fantasyland!
Tina works full time as a school counselor in an elementary school. She lives close to Baltimore, MD with her husband Dave and her 13 year old stepdaughter, Ashley. They also have a furry family member, a cat name Frodo, that keeps life interesting in their house! Tina began visiting Disney World as a child with her family, and now her, Dave & Ashley take a trip to the World every year. She considers herself a Disney “fanatic” and once her family is finished one trip, she is already planning their next one. Tina loves to find the best deals, even in the busy seasons (she can only go when schools are off!) and loves sharing those deals & tips with anyone and everyone! What Tina loves most is the magic of WDW, it makes her feel like a kid again. She hopes that every family has the opportunity go to the World and experience the magic for themselves because it has a way of reminding its visitors that dreams do indeed come true!
