Tasty food

Meals on the go are a staple the world over, in fact they’re so popular Epcot has dedicated an entire festival to them. For those of us who love street foods, however, we aren’t limited to only six weeks a year, or even one park for that matter. Grab and go items are available throughout Walt Disney World, and none is more mouth watering than the elusive egg roll. After some strenuous research the Gazette’s dining team has compiled a list of locations where these fried treats can be found.
Lotus Blossom Cafe: Egg Rolls (2) 3.99

Magic Kingdom
Adventureland Egg-Roll Wagon: Pork and Shrimp Egg Roll 2.50/Vegetable Egg Roll 2.00
Sunshine Tree Terrace: Pork and Shrimp Egg Roll 2.50/Vegetable Egg Roll 2.00
Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station: Vegetable Egg Roll 1.89

Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Safari Egg Rolls (near Flights of Wonder): Pork and Shrimp 2.29/Vegetable Egg Roll 1.89
Yak and Yeti – Anandapur Local Food Cafes: Pork Egg Rolls (2) 3.29

It should be mentioned that the Adventureland Egg-Roll Wagon and Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station operate seasonally, which makes obtaining an egg roll tricky in the Magic Kingdom. While not often publicized, when the Egg Roll Cart is not operating, egg roll enthusiasts can get their fix at the Sunshine Tree Terrace.In the battle for title of Best Walt Disney World Egg Roll, both Lotus Blossom Cafe and the sites in Adventureland have put forth some amazing fried dough and vegetables. However, the crown must go to the Pork Egg Rolls available at Anandapur Local Foods Cafes. They are the perfect combination of a crispy exterior, while still maintaining a slightly chewy dough and hot, flavor-filled, vegetables and pork.

As for pricing, the best dough for your dollar also comes from any of the egg rolls found in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as well as the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station when it is available.

What shocked our researchers most? It was, in fact, that there are no egg rolls, or egg roll carts, available anywhere within Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This seems a shame, since San Francisco Street, a part of the Streets of America, features the perfect location for a cart. The China Bowl Restaurant sits at the corner of the Streets of America and San Francisco Street and would be the perfect stop to grab an egg roll and listen to the sounds of the city.

Wherever you find your egg rolls, they are the perfect meal for those in-between mealtimes.
