Adventureland Egg Roll Cart’s Pork Egg Rolls

One of our favorite places to get a quick snack in the Magic Kingdom is the Adventureland Egg Roll Cart, located adjacent to where the camels outside of Aladdin’s Flying Carpets likes to spit. We’re fans of the egg rolls here, and have been enjoying the vegetable version for years. On our last visit to the park, we strayed from our normal veggie filled choice and opted for their Pork Egg Roll. Previously, this version also contained shrimp, an ingredient Matt can’t stand.

They look just like the vegetable variety, and the batch we got was straight from the oven to replenish the cart’s inventory. They also cost the same as the veggie egg roll: $2.50.

The rolls are fried to a golden brown, and when they are fresh, they have a crispy exterior that hasn’t softened from sitting in the glass case. And be warned, these will burn your mouth if you jump right in.

While the vegetable version is heavy on the flavor of said veggies, the pork version is cut with ground pork that still allows the vegetables to shine, but with a slight porky note. It was a nice change of pace, and while the vegetable version will still hold a special place for us, it’s nice to have this second option when we’re looking for a snack with some more protein.

But they are different than the ones at Lotus Blossom Cafe in Epcot, both in exterior and amount of veggies you’ll find in them. The ones I’ve had rely more on pork:

Whichever egg roll you choose, I think you’ll be happy. Find a place off to the side of the main walkway to enjoy your savory treat while watching unsuspecting guests get hit by water. If you are a fan of this cart as we are, did you order the vegetable or pork and shrimp version? Are you upset the pork and shrimp is gone, or will you be okay with the options available? Let us know what you think!

  1. You know what? We’ve never had an egg roll in Magic Kingdom 🙂 Maybe that goes on the list of things to do.
    I’m fine without the shrimp – even though I LOVE shrimp – I’ve never been a huge fan of the little bitty shrimp that you usually find in egg rolls (were they like that?).

  2. My guess was that they were small bits of chopped up shrimp. I personally never ordered the shrimp and pork ones myself either. If I’m going to eat shrimp, I want the real deal! 😉

  3. Shrimp recommendation… Go to Rusty Bellies in Tarpon Springs! The shrimp there are very “Carolina Coastal” – lightly breaded (we would just toss them in flour + salt + pepper when I was a kid), crispy, and not overcooked. Yum yum.

  4. Does either version contain peas? Peas are the devil. Really, if there’s anywhere you find peas where you don’t expect them, warn me!

  5. Nora – I’ll have to keep that in mind the next time we head out to the coast!

    Jenn – No peas! 🙂

  6. Are these any different from the std. grocery store frozen egg roll? They look suspiciously similar.

  7. It’s highly likely (99.9999%) they are. As for brand, I’m not sure as I don’t buy frozen egg rolls myself for a comparison (fun blog post idea though! ;)). As a side note, the corn dogs sold on WDW property – and at this cart – are State Fair brand, which you can also find at the supermarket.
