1. Corn Dog Nuggets from Casey's Corner

Alright, folks, we’re talking about the one, the only corn dog nuggies!

This park snack is an icon in itself. Ideal for cavalcade watching, enjoying the fireworks, walking down Main Street, heading to your fave attraction, literally any occasion. The nugs are only $10.29 and come with your choice of fries or a Cutie Mandarin orange. We recommend ordering a soda from Casey’s while you’re there since they are the largest cups in MK and ring in at $4.49!

2. Joffrey's Latte

Most people rope drop Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or Space Mountain, but we recommend rope dropping the Joffrey’s Coffee Stand instead! The best way to start your morning at MK is with freshly brewed coffee. Enjoy artisan roasted coffees, teas, and signature specialty beverages in various ways, including lattes, espressos, cold brew, iced tea, spirited drinks, and more!

You can find Joffrey’s all over Walt Disney World property, but at Magic Kingdom, you can get your fix at the Transportation and Ticket Center and in Tomorrowland. At $5.69 a latte, it’s too good of a deal to turn down!

When you’re walking around a theme park, nothing beats the classic ice cream cone. And no one does ice cream better than the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor!

Hand scooped into a delicious waffle cone, the ice cream here is the best in the park. Step back in time to this nostalgic ice cream parlor where it’s always dessert time. Ice cream cones start at $6.49. You can choose from vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, mint chocolate chip, cookies n’ cream, or raspberry sorbet. And if you’re feeling extra special, try one of their sundaes like the Banana Boom!
