Disney Eats Festive Foodie Guide to Resorts at Walt Disney World

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Disney Parks Blog

‘Tis the season to treat yourself – and what better way than through your stomach? This year, the Disney Resort hotels are bursting with holiday goodies to get you in the spirit of the season. With eats, treats, and sips a plenty, you’ll be more than satisfied with this Disney Eats Foodie Guide!

I don’t know about you, but for me, the absolute best part about this time of year is all the yuletide items you can try! There’s a reason we wait all year for them. All across the resorts, you can unwrap items that will light up your palate with flavors that are sugar, spice, and everything nice. From the almost too cute to eat (almost) Snowman Chocolate Marshmallow Pie at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to the plant-based and gluten-friendly Santa’s Forest dessert at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and who can forget the classic Christmas Feast at multiple locations, everyone can taste their way through the holidays – one resort at a time.

Let’s continue our foodie adventure through the most wonderful time of the year in this guide. And if you missed it, be sure to jingle all the way to the Disney Eats topics page to find our previous Foodie Guides for Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, and the Festival of Holidays at Disneyland Resort.
