Try some of the best snacks at Universal Orlando and you won’t regret forgetting that little snack bag in your hotel room.
When we travel the goal is to have an experience that we can’t have every single day. Theme parks are a popular travel destination because they build entire experiences from the ground up. Every little detail from the buildings to the rides and more are part of that experience. At Universal Orlando, the experience is to visit the world of the movies we love from Universal. Where else can you escape from Gringotts Bank or hang out with the Simpsons in Springfield? While you’re visiting those movies, part of the experience is to eat like your favorite characters. Snacks at Universal Orlando take the entire experience and put a nice, tasty cherry on top.
Toothsome Chocolate Emporium
Toothsome Chocolate Emporium is a full-service restaurant but there are hidden gems here as well. You can indulge in the savory, classic dishes like steak or brunch menus but you can also try something new. Toothsome is quickly becoming known for their culinary alchemy chocolates. These chocolates are included in many different desserts like brownie bark and bacon brittle. But we loved the artisanal milkshakes and you will too.
The Watering Hole
Okay, clearly this is for those 21 and over, but we count too, right? This is a hidden gem for anyone over 21. Most may walk right by, not knowing that they have a mighty nice bar here fully capable of a Cadillac Margarita and other nice cocktails to add a bit of relaxation into your day. The Watering Hole can be found, if you look for it, in Islands of Adventure near Jurassic Park. When you find the stand, you can show off that you knew there were delicious adult drinks within arms reach.
Croissant Moon Bakery
The perfect place to start your day at Universal Orlando is at Croissant Moon Bakery. Here, you’ll find pastries of all sorts but you’ll want to try the mini donuts. These mini donuts aren’t just any mini donuts from the grocery. These mini donuts are the best mini donuts you’ll ever eat. The bakery also serves up other breakfast pastries and sandwiches that you’ll love.
Lard Lad Donuts
There is only one other place that gives Croissant Moon Bakery a run for it’s donuts and that’s Lard Lad Donuts. Seriously, can a name get better than this? Talk about variety and some pretty crazy ones. There are dozens of donuts including the famous pink covered donuts from Springfield. The hardest part will be deciding which ones to try first. Our fave? The Fruity Pebble donuts of course!
Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor
A visit to Universal Orlando would not be complete without getting your hands on some Butterbeer ice cream. Many of us know Butterbeer from a little movie franchise called Harry Potter, you may have heard of it. Butterbeer is not an alcoholic beverage at Universal and is served best in frozen form at this ice cream Parlour. Of course, a Parlour would signify that there are more options and there are plenty. However, our favorite of all the snacks at Universal Orlando is the Butterbeer ice cream.
