Catering to ever complex and nuanced diet choices of many Disney Park travelers, Disney will be launching a new health-minded line called “Snacks with Character.”
The line aims to deliver options for those with particular dietary needs that can be difficult to placate when it comes to snacks and quick grab and go eats. Eleven new items will be available at launching offering gluten-free, nut-free, and other allergy-friendly products.
The new snacks come as the product of Disney’s collaboration Ocean Spray, Enjoy Life Foods, Way Better Snacks and WOW Baking Company. The new snacks are expected to hit domestic Disney Parks locations including Aulani and the Disney Cruise Line.

New Snacks With Character Offer Better For You Snack Options at Disney Parks
I’m delighted to share that guests now have new snack options at Disney Parks called Snacks with Character. This Disney-branded line of better-for-you snacks is great for guests looking for dietary alternatives related to food allergies or lifestyle choices. I recently spoke with Patrice Guy, merchandiser with Disney Theme Park Merchandise, about how these items were created.
“We listened to guests who said they wanted options when it comes to snacks at Disney Parks,” explained Patrice. “The Snacks with Character line was developed in collaboration with Merchandise Product Development, Food and Beverage Health and Wellness, Disney Design Group, and various suppliers in this field. We hope guests will enjoy these new tasty treats that are fun to share.”
To create these treats, Disney Theme Park Merchandise teamed up with well-known specialty suppliers such as Ocean Spray, Enjoy Life Foods, Way Better Snacks and WOW Baking Company. Several of the dietary needs addressed in the new assortment products include gluten-free, nut-free, and other allergy-friendly products.
The Snacks with Character line will launch with 11 new items. Look for the snack option from Ocean Spray later this year at Disney Parks.
Guests should look for these select items in merchandise locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts, on Disney Cruise Line ships, and at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa.
Select food and beverage locations at Walt Disney World Resort will also carry Snacks with Characters.
