  • Mickey Pretzel: Shaped like everyone’s favorite mouse, this salty snack is a classic Disney treat that’s perfect for munching on while exploring the parks.

  • Popcorn: I think this has become so popular because of the cute, collectable popcorn buckets you can choose from. Then refill them for a fraction of the cost throughout your entire visit for a yummy, filling, and inexpensive snack. HINT: Get a maple popcorn refill in Epcot’s Canada for a slightly sweet treat!
