Your Foodie Guide to Disney World's 50th Anniversary Celebration (Including Our Faves!)

by Mommy Frog on August 10, 2022 Orlando

50th Anniversary Foodie Guide – PinterestDisney always amazes me with its creative food options, but I am really blown out of the pond with all of the specialty food and drink for Disney World's 50th anniversary celebration! With over a hundred new items and more being added all the time, you'll need multiple visits to try them all! The celebration continues through March 31, 2023, so you still have a chance to eat some delicious party food.

Some of the new food and drinks pay homage to current attractions, as well as popular attractions of the past. You'll even find some meals inspired by Walt's favorites, such as his chili recipe. When checking menus in the parks, keep an eye out for the castle icon to represent specialty anniversary items. Along with new offerings, there's lots of new restaurants to explore, like Connections Eatery and Cafe at EPCOT and Swirls on the Water at Disney Springs (more Dole Whip options? Don't mind if we do!)

While some items were only available during the first few months of the celebration, other dishes have remained the entire time, and more can be released so be sure to keep an eye out. We've listed the majority of the 50th food items below by park, as well as our Froggy Faves section at the end for our top picks. Read on for our frogtastic foodie guide to the 50th anniversary!

50th Anniversary Froggy Food Favorites

50th Anniversary Foodie Guide - Sparkling Sunshine

Wow, what an amazing party spread! The good news is, we still have lots of months to enjoy all of these delicious goodies. We wanted to show off some of our personal froggy faves here, and be sure to check back as we continue to try more. A sacrifice we frogs are ready to make, hehe!

  • We loved the Sparkling Sunshine from Magic Kingdom! It was so cool and refreshing, plus the EARidescent sugar added some festive party pizzazz (just watch the quick melting factor from that Florida sun — Lily had some nice sparkly sticky fingers afterward). (pictured)
  • Another highlight was the Hand-dipped 50th Celebration Mickey Premium Bar from Animal Kingdom. Who knew the classic premium bar could get any better?
  • The Happy Haunts Milkshake in Magic Kingdom was a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed the blackberry milkshake, though we had to split the doughnut because there was so much sugar (Tad and Lily saw no problems here).

Be sure to enjoy these speciality items before the 50th anniversary celebration ends March 31, 2022!
