When you have allergies, you know the names of your favorite brands, and one of the most recognizable brands (especially when it comes to treats for the kiddos) is Enjoy Life!
These products are top 14 free, plus a few others, and are a great addition in snacks and treats.
I created this post because many people didn’t know about Enjoy Life at the parks. Often this is because sometimes it’s in different packaging. Normally, they are in the bright teal packages–but at Disney, things are different.
Yes friends, you can find Enjoy life products at quite a few places (not everywhere but many places!)
You’ll find them in the teal packaging that you know at many quick serve and table service options, and you’ll also find them in this “snacks with character” line.
*******************************IMPORTANT- many “snacks with character” products are allergy friendly BUT NOT ALL.
I personally hate that they use the same branding for allergy and non allergy products- but it’s also amazing that my kids can have “Mickey candy bars and cookies” as part of #disneyallergyfriendly options ☺️So this is me being thankful for the options we do have 🙃 while also warning you about what we don’t have 🥴
Where can you find these fun rebranded snacks with character treats?
NOTE FOR 2020 DURING ALL OF THIS COVID19 MADNESS
With the shutdown, it impacted production of enjoy life products, and you will find that NOW in 2020, many of these locations DO NOT CARRY enjoy life products currently. I dont know how long this will last as these were incredible popular with the free-from and the plant based community.
in 2020 post-shutdown in the summer I have personally been to every park to check for food allergy options. You can find a few treats at the World of Disney in Disney Springs, and some at the confectionary in Magic Kingdom. OTHERWISE, besides a chocolate bar in Epcot, the other three parks do not have enjoy life products.
Let me repeat that. If you are going to Animal Kingdom or Hollywood Studios there is a 99% chance you WILL NOT find enjoy life products. HS normally doesnt have them anyways. Epcot had a chocolate bar and Magic Kingdom cut their allergy friendly section in half.
Water parks aren’t open, and with half of the restaurants closed, I’m not seeing the cookies being offered much (but I did have one at 50s prime time the other day! so they still exist in the parks)
Furthermore, I went to many of the resorts, specifically DVC resorts that carry more food items, and the only enjoy life products I found were the chocolate bars. I’m interested to see what other options resorts are carrying once visitors increase. Follow along on Instagram and save this post to check for updates.

💜 most resort gift shops
💜 Main Street confectionary (mk)
💜 Zuris Sweet ship (Ak)
💜 many gift shops in the Disney World Parks (not Hollywood studios)
💜 Blizzard Beach
💜 Typhoon Lagoon
So let’s talk about where you can find them and what’s offered at the parks– especially when you need a safe treat and don’t have any other safe options!
This post may contain affiliate links, read my full disclosure here.
Before we start, I want to say… you can find Enjoy Life cookies at many, many of the quick service options and many of the sit down restaurants.
What we’re going to cover in this post is where you can buy the products for snacking–not necessarily a dessert from a restaurant.
But many places have them–like Beaches and Cream.
At the Resorts
This is going to be the place where you find the largest selection! You’ll find many Enjoy Life products, like the cookies, the chocolate, the seed mix and the regular version of the Enjoy Life products. (So not in the rebranded “snacks with character” line.)
Sometimes you have to hunt for the items–sometimes not. You’ll find them in little shops and food courts at the resorts!
And I’ve been finding the protein bites at many of the resort gift shops, which is perfect for me. Nothing like a late night snack or something to bring into the parks.
We always like to grab a bag of these to keep in the room too- it seals nicely and is a great snack instead of having to walk around and find something.
Disney Partnership with Enjoy Life
As mentioned above, Enjoy Life won’t always be in the standard teal packaging.
So let’s talk about that! Disney has a partnership with Enjoy Life to rebrand their products for sale under the “snacks with characters” line. I love this and I hate this.
Because not all of the snacks with characters line are allergy friendly, so it can be deceiving. For one, you might think everything from that brand is safe (it’s not).
For two, you might not get some Enjoy Life products from the brand because you think it’s processed on shared equipment (it’s not–Enjoy Life packages it).
Where can you find Enjoy Life products at Disney World?
The parks have many wonderful treats that lots of people can enjoy–but not always. For instance, breakfast time is notoriously hard for those with allergies.
And with large crowds, you might need a snack that you can safely grab and eat while you wait!
Let’s see where you can find treats in the parks!
You can find quite a few options at the bakery on Main Street!
Which is totally amazing when you know that this is right when you walk inside the park. You can swing by and grab some treats on the way in, or as you exit the park!
Located at the back of the park, you’ll find quite the selection at Zuri’s Sweets Shop.
Hollywood Studios is one of my least favorite for allergy friendly options (but they are adding stuff, so don’t be discouraged from going–just be aware it’s not the top dog).
So I went hunting for Enjoy Life products and really had to dig to find them! They are located at the beginning of the park on the right, and they only have the seed mix. I even got several managers involved.
Epcot has quite a few seed mixes (in fact I’ve seen them at every store) but the one place that has quite a few goodies (the cookies and other options) is smack in the middle of the park at the beginning of the world showcase.
Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach
Each of the water parks have some Enjoy Life products. I’ve seen the seed mix at each of the shops, and the quick serve locations have cookies.
I haven’t found them at Disney Springs–if you find them, let me know!
There’s lots of options
As you can see, there’s quite a few places to locate Enjoy Life products at the Disney World parks! It makes eating with allergies just a little bit easier.
