The Battle of the Multicolor Milks
Blue Milk ranked as the second most picture-perfect treat found in Disney Parks. Inspired by the Star Wars universe, Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge features these colorful and exotic plant-based milk drinks in two different flavors, blue and green. The analysis revealed that Blue Milk was the most Instagrammable among the two, receiving 55,275 hashtags, which is 29,878 more hashtags than Green Milk, which ranks fourth.
Rounding Out the List
Mickey Pretzels place next in the ranking, in third place. The classic soft and salty Mickey Pretzel has one of the biggest cult followings throughout Disney Parks and currently has 30,407 recorded hashtags on Instagram.
Green Milk is the fourth most Instagrammable Disney Parks treat, with a recorded 25,397 hashtags on Instagram. Luke Skywalker can be seen enjoying Blue Milk in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and Green Milk in Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, and fans can now try the frozen treat for themselves in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
The research revealed that Mickey Waffles are the fifth most Instagrammable Disney Park treat. As a Disney Parks staple, Mickey Waffles are located all across the parks worldwide and have a recorded 25,277 hashtags on Instagram.
Disney Popcorn Buckets place as the sixth most popular Disney Parks snack on Instagram, with 20,618 recorded hashtags. Popcorn Buckets are not only a fantastic refillable snack but are also a great souvenir to take home, often shaped like our favorite Disney characters.
According to the study, Mickey Beignets rank as the seventh most Instagrammable Disney Parks snack, with 11,163 Instagram hashtags. Mickey Beignets are slightly harder to find in the parks but can be found at Royal Street Veranda in Disneyland and Scat Cat’s Club in Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter, in Walt Disney World.
Pandora’s Night Blossom drink came in eighth on our list, followed by Disney Churros in ninth place.
A Shocker at Number 10
Surprisingly, one of the parks’ most iconic treats lands the bottom spot on our top 10 list. We were admittedly a bit stunned to learn that the famed Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar ranked 10th on our list, with fewer than 10,000 hashtags — this, despite the fact that the treats are often deemed a “must have” by parkgoers (and are even offered onboard Disney Cruise Ships)!
Of course, the name Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, so it’s possible that we weren’t able to capture all of the hashtags used by fans of this iconic chocolate covered ice cream treat.

Final Thoughts on The Most Instagrammable Disney Treats
Our editor Jaimie Michaels noted, “Disney Parks are known worldwide for their thrilling attractions, enchanting shows, and dazzling entertainment, but Disney magic also extends to its delicious and unique food and dining options that cater to all kinds of tastes and preferences. Each Disney Park around the world has its own selection of culinary delights, often featuring themed treats that add to the overall immersive vacation experience.”
“These findings emphasize the unwavering popularity of the iconic Dole Whip, which has been a park staple since first introduced in 1986. The research also highlights that practically any snacks or treats shaped as Disney’s iconic Mickey Mouse are popular to post online, with four Mickey-shaped treats in the ranking.”
