Universal Orlando Resort is a snack-lover’s paradise. There’s truly something for everyone – even the pickiest person in your party is sure to be satisfied. Spanning across both Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure, as well as Universal’s Volcano Bay water park and CityWalk shopping center, here are the must-have snacks at Universal Orlando Resort. 

A Foodie’s Guide to Must-Have Snacks at Universal Orlando Resort

1. Butterbeer

Perhaps the most well-known Universal treat, Butterbeer can be found in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at both Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure and Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida. This magical beverage is served cold, frozen and hot (during the winter months). You can also find Butterbeer soft serve, fudge and potted cream if the drinks aren’t enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.

2. Voodoo Doughnuts

Voodoo Doughnut in CityWalk is home to some of the most unique and quirky doughnuts we’ve ever laid our eyes on. The Bacon Maple Bar, Voodoo Doll, Universal Orangesicle and Portland Cream are just a few of over 50 signature doughnuts available daily.

A summer-must, the Waturi Fusion Ice Cream Cone at Universal’s Volcano Bay is the perfect way to combat the Florida heat. This rainbow beauty combines flavors of blue raspberry, banana, strawberry and orange into one delicious masterpiece.

4. Toothsome Milkshakes

While Universal Orlando Resort has a multitude of sweet milkshake options, the most delicious (and the most beautiful to look at) are without-a-doubt Jacques’ Specialty Milkshakes, served at the wonderful Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen, located at Universal’s CityWalk.

6. Honk Honkers Gourmet Cotton Candy

This Seussical treat is bigger than your head, and oh so worth it. Flavors include blue raspberry, birthday cake, jolly berry, pink vanilla, grape and apple. The toppings (aka the best part) range from sprinkles and marshmallows to cookies and rock candy. Indulge at Seuss Landing in Islands of Adventure.

9. Green Eggs & Ham Tots

Breakfast always tastes better at the theme parks, and that is just the case with this unique Seuss-inspired bite. Don’t let the literal green eggs throw you off, this snack is all kinds of hearty and delicious. Dig in at the Green Eggs and Ham Cafe situated in Seuss Landing at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

10. Pizza Fries 

Pizza Fries may only be available two months out of the year, but they are a true Horror Nights staple – and deservedly so. A perfect combination of seasoned french fries and cheesy pizza, you can find this signature dish at KidZone Pizza Company during Halloween Horror Nights. A deliciously sweet spin on this classic dish was introduced last year with the debut of S’mores Fries, which are equally as tasty.
