The refreshing soft-serve treat also receives more than 58,000 average Google searches monthly.


In the battle of the milks, Blue Milk won, with more than 55,000 posts compared to Green Milk’s nearly 30,000. Mickey-themed snacks proved popular with four appearances in the top 10 in pretzel, waffle, beignet and ice cream bar form.


The top 10 most Instagrammable Disney Park snacks are:

  5. Mickey Waffle

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,” stated a spokesperson from MagicGuides.
