When visiting Disney parks, it is only natural for you to try out specialty foods you can only buy there. Of course, the food items will be more special when they are Mickey-shaped. These foods will get you into the spirit of visiting Disneyland. Here are some of the top choices when you are looking for Mickey-shaped foods at Disneyland:
Every Disney park will have this classic snack – pretzel. If you walk around the park, you’ll find stands selling this food. You can choose to enjoy Disney pretzel snack with a special nacho cheese dipping sauce.
Mickey Popcorn Bucket
The Mickey popcorn bucket is one of the latest crazes at Disneyland. It is a novelty yellow Mickey-shaped bucket that holds the timeless salty snack popcorn. The popcorn bucket first arrived in Disney’s Anaheim park.
“Red Shorts” Sugar Cookie
If you want a treat where Mickey is all dressed up, then the “Red Shorts” Sugar Cookie is the best treat to have. The cookie is shaped like Mickey, with the head portion dipped in chocolate. The lower portion is painted with Mickey’s iconic red-and-yellow motif. You can get the said cookie at Marceline’s Confectionery found at Disneyland’s Downtown Disney.
Waffles are probably the easiest to shape into anything you want. Thus, it is no wonder that there are Mickey-shaped waffles sold in Disneyland. Truth be told, the Mickey-shaped waffle is an iconic snack in Disneyland. You can pop some whipped cream and strawberries on top to make your waffle tastier. Sleepy Hollow Refreshments located at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom serves delish waffles.
Despite being a mainstay item in American menus, the only way you can get Mickey-shaped burgers is to fly all the way to Japan and visit Tokyo Disneyland. Only served at Tomorrowland Terrace, you can also enjoy Mickey-shaped chicken nuggets with your Mickey-shaped burgers.
For kids, macarons are great finger foods. Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe, a Disneyland establishment, serves macarons of different flavors.
If you are at Hawaii’s Disney Aulani, then you better go on a treasure hunt for shaved ice stands. The ice stands there serve one of the exclusive Mickey-shaped treats for park hoppers – Mickey-shaped shaved ice. When visiting Disneyland during the summer season, then the shaved ice can help you cool down while you walk around.
Summer cool down treats are aplenty in Disney parks too! Aside from the shaved ice, you can also buy ice pops. Of course, they are Mickey-shaped but you can choose Minnie-shaped ice pops too! The best thing about them is that they are fruit flavored!
Mickey Spam Musubi
You might think that musubi can definitely be found only at Japan’s Disneyland. After all, musubi is a type of sushi with marinated cooked spam. But that isn’t the case at all! Mickey-shaped Musubis are served at Hawaii’s Disney Aulani Resort.
If you like to eat a dessert while walking around the park, then a dessert-on-a-stick is your choice. Mickey-shaped cake pops are dipped in milk chocolate with a bit of white choco drizzled on top. Main Street Confectionery located at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom serves these cake pops.
If you are not afraid of carb overload, then get your dose of Mickey-shaped sourdough bread. Of course, the sourdoughs aren’t only in the shape of Mickey. The sourdough bread is available in the shape of other Disney characters too. To get the Mickey-shaped sourdough bread, you can go to the Pacific Wharf Cafe located at Disney California Adventure.
When visiting Shanghai Disneyland Park, you shouldn’t forget to check out the doughnut stands. The Mickey-shaped doughnuts are basically just three doughnuts formed into the Mickey shape – a big doughnut to form the face and two small ones to serve as the ears.
Yep, there’s an extra ‘s’ right there. This Mickey-shaped mousse has white chocolate mousse, chocolate chiffon cake, and dark chocolate mousse inside. To get this sugar rush treat, you can go to Amorette’s Patisserie located at Disney Springs.
Going to Disneyland means you’ll have to bring souvenirs back home with you, you know? One of the best choices for souvenirs is Mickey-shaped cheese crackers. They are golden-colored bite-sized treats that you can buy at Shanghai Disneyland Park’s souvenir stand.
These food items are not only novelties; they honor one of the iconic characters of all time – Mickey Mouse! If you are going to Disneyland soon, which one of these food treats will you try out first?
