Today, I’m going to share a secret with you about my favorite snack in all of Walt Disney World. The cronut – part doughnut, part crossiant, it is tops on my list of ‘must eats’.
Whether it is breakfast, an afternoon snack or an after-Illuminations treat – the cronut is one of the most popular eats you’ll find when visiting the parks, but you can only find it in one place at Walt Disney World. Trust me, you want to keep reading…
What Is a Cronut?
I like to call it ‘heaven on a plate’, but really a cronut is a cross between a donut and a croissant with plenty of cinnamon sugar.
Served hot, Epcot’s cronuts have the option to be topped with soft-serve vanilla ice cream. I prefer my cronuts served without ice cream, but either way – both are delicious! Cronuts are served all day, great for breakfast or late-night snack.
Where Can I Buy a Cronut at Walt Disney World?
You’ll find cronuts at Epcot’s Refreshment Port, just as you are making your way into the World Showcase.
The Refreshment Port is in between the Port of Entry shops and on the right side of the walkway as you make your way toward Canada. As far as I know, this is the only place in all of Walt Disney World to enjoy a cronut — so don’t miss it.
Enjoy This Special Treat
Usually, my husband and I share snacks as we tour the parks, but the cronut is our exception. This cronut is so tasty that we both insist on having our own. We love grabbing a seat in the shade over by the lake and enjoying a time out with our favorite snack.
The cronut was introduced a few years ago and judging by the lines, I’d be willing to bet that it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed. Pro Tip: Plan ahead if you want to enjoy one while watching Illuminations fireworks – the lines get LONG.
Sadly the cronut isn’t part of the Disney Dining Plan, but don’t let that keep you from enjoying a cronut.
This magical snack is a ‘must eat’ — and a refreshing way to start your tour of the World Showcase too. Made to order, I’m already looking forward to our next trip to Epcot … just for a cronut.
