Who doesn't love crispy golden french fries? At Walt Disney World, they elevate your usual french fry fare to new heights, often creating something down right decadent. Whether you're looking for a quick snack between rides or you're out to try some of the best french fry creations from around the world, we’ve got you covered. Here are our top 5 french fry dishes at Walt Disney World.
Plaza Loaded Fries from The Plaza Restaurant at Magic Kingdom
The Plaza Restaurant on Main Street U.S.A is one of those lesser talked about hidden gems of Magic Kingdom. The dining room is beautiful but quaint and the food is scrumptious yet reasonably priced. One of their spotlight offerings are the Plaza Loaded Fries. This huge plate of golden fries is topped with melted cheese, bits of real bacon, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and a drizzle of ranch dressing. The combination of flavors makes for a crisp, fresh taste, but the gooey cheese calls for this to be eaten with a fork. Share this appetizer with someone or order it as your lunch, because you'll want to save room for the bottomless milkshakes they serve at The Plaza. Keep the milkshakes coming and order a different flavor each time. After all, you're on vacation!
Loaded Buffalo Chicken Tater Tots from The Friar’s Nook at Magic Kingdom
In Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom, you'll find The Friar's Nook. This snack window near The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh offers some outrageous snacks and over-the-top desserts. The best offering here though has got to be the Loaded Buffalo Chicken Tots. This crazy little bowl of tater tots is covered with spicy buffalo chicken pieces, along with chopped celery, blue cheese crumbles and garlic ranch dressing. They also offer Loaded Fiesta Tots with a Mexican flare, and for those looking for something less spicy there's the Greek Tots topped with feta, olives and tzatziki sauce. Hope you saved room for dessert because you can order a fried Twinkie here. It's a real Twinkie that's deep fried, sprinkled with powdered sugar and covered with your choice of sauce. What'll they think of next?
Specialty Poutines from The Daily Poutine at Disney Springs
Poutine is a popular dish from Canada that's sweeping the nation. It's usually made by covering french fries in gravy and cheese curds. (Trust me, it tastes much better than it sounds.) You can now get poutine at a few spots around Disney World, but The Daily Poutine at Disney Springs offers the best and most authentic versions. If it's your first time trying it, order the Classic Poutine. Feeling a little more adventurous? Try their Italian Poutine with mozzarella and Bolognese sauce, the Latin Poutine with fried yucca, black beans, pulled pork and queso sauce, or order the rich French Poutine with a mushroom cream sauce and Gruyere cheese. No matter which one you choose, you will not be disappointed. Order them all and have a Poutine tasting party at Disney Springs.
Fries with Pulled Pork and Cheese from Flame Tree Barbecue at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Flame Tree Barbecue is a great place to eat at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Their selection of smoked meats and signature sides like baked beans and cornbread are out of this world. For a quick and filling snack they have just the thing. The French Fries with Pulled Pork and Cheese may technically be a snack, but it'll fill you up good. Imagine an order of fries covered with smoky pulled pork and drowned in melted cheese sauce. Plus, there's barbecue sauce and a sprinkling of chopped green peppers on top for good measure. You may need to share this one, or order it as a meal, because it's more filling than most other snacks at Disney World. Enjoy your barbecue fries at one of the quiet seating areas along the water for a gorgeous view while you dig in.
Sriracha Tzatziki Fries at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
If you find yourself hungry while walking between Africa and Asia at Disney's Animal Kingdom, do yourself a favor and stop by the food cart behind the Tree of Life for an order of Mr. Kamal’s Seasoned Fries. These french fries are perfectly seasoned, giving them a little kick! They're topped with a chunky Tzatzki sauce and zesty Sriracha ketchup. The cooling balance of the Tzatziki with its chopped cucumber bits perfectly balances out the somewhat spicy Sriracha ketchup. Again, this is one you'll want a fork for, unless you don't mind getting your hands dirty that is. Mr. Kamal’s also offers a quick hummus and pita plate or a tasty falafel dish, all great snacks to fill up with between exploring more animal jungle treks at the park.
