Style maven, Danielle Nicole, of Danielle Nicole Handbags, recently gave us the scoop on her top 5 foods at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, and we’re not surprised to see some super cute items on her list.

It’s no secret that Danielle DiFerdinando loves Disney, so it just makes sense that she would love the parks.

Even if you’re unfamiliar with her name, you’ve most likely seen her work! Danielle DiFerdinando is the founder of Danielle Nicole Handbags– and you can find her brilliant designs in select stores, including The Disney Store and shopDisney as well as all over the parks on fellow guests!

Danielle quickly became a #DisneyStyle staple for Disney Parks fans, and for good reason. These wonderfully magical designs give you that stand-out-of-the-crowd twist to your outfit that we all crave when putting together a look!

Danielle has partnered with huge brands such as Warner Bros., HBO, and of course, Disney! The Disney collections that are offered by Danielle Nicole have been inspired by our beloved Disney Princesses, the wickedest Disney Villains, hilarious sidekicks, and even some of our favorite Disney foods!

So, what are some of her favorite Disney snacks? Well, there are probably too many to name, so we narrowed the list down to Danielle Nicole’s top 5 food picks from this year’s EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.

From sweet to savoury, here are Danielle’s unmissable snacks you can grab at EPCOT from now through July 5th!

1. Violet Lemonade

Probably the most iconic EPCOT festival treat, Violet Lemonade can be found at the Pineapple Promenade booth at the entrance to World Showcase Plaza.

This sweet and sour slushy drink will have your lips puckering with delight. But don’t forget to snap some cute pics before you dive in! That bright violet color is an Instagramer’s dream. Plus it comes topped with a delicate little flower for extra cuteness.

We’re not at all surprised to see this on Danielle’s list. Every Disney fashionista needs at least one selfie with this drink, and Danielle knows a good selfie when she sees one.

2. Macaron au Chocolate en Sucette

You’ll find this large chocolate macaron lollipop at the France Pavilion, and yes it does taste as good as it looks!

Bite into this tender macaron to find a moist chocolatey center of deliciousness. No chocolate lover will be disappointed!

Just like the Violet Lemonade, this treat is perfectly photogenic.

3. Seared Verlasso Salmon

Okay so maybe this one isn’t quite as cute, but you’ll need something hearty and healthy to pair with those last two treats.

The salmon in this dish is perfectly flaky, and the chewy texture of the farro risotto is a great pairing. Plus, those micro-herbs on top are tossed in a delightfully fresh vinaigrette, making this a perfectly balanced dish.

You can find this healthy plate at the Flavor Full Kitchen booth located in Future World West.

4. Margherita

You can’t go wrong with rustic Italian flatbread with tomato sauce and mozzarella! It’s simple but classic, much like Danielle’s personal style.

The portion size here is also quite generous, which we always love to see at an EPCOT festival!

You can find it at, surprise, surprise, the Italy pavilion.

5. Mini Funnel Cake

Topped with lemon cheesecake ice cream, blueberries, and powdered sugar, this gorgeous mini funnel cake is what foodie dreams are made of.

Find it at the funnel cake stand at the American Adventure pavilion, and maybe bring a friend to eat it with you! It may be mini, but it’s also mighty. And by that we mean this is a pretty hefty little treat that packs a lot of punch!
