5 Chick-fil-A Food Hacks That’ll Change Your Life

Before you read this post, we highly recommend grabbing a snack, because you’ll be hungry by the time you finish reading!


There are lots of great fast food restaurants in Disney (quick-service restaurants, in Disney-lingo). As we’ve literally eaten at all of them, we know which are worth your time and which you may want to skip. But the one thing you won’t find on Disney World property? Fast food restaurants you find in OTHER parts of the country, like Chick-fil-A. If you’re like some of us here at DFB and you love this fast food spot, you may think of ways to spice up your order from time to time. So we’re sharing 5 Chick-fil-A food hacks that just might change your life!

All of these hacks involve items that are on Chick-fil-A’s normal menu, and you don’t need to ask the team member working on your order to do anything special. The hack is up to you to follow through on!

Brownie/Cookie Milkshake

Chick-fil-A has a few milkshake flavors (some of them are seasonal!), but if you want to kick it up a notch, you can order an extra something and bring your milkshake to the next level.


In addition to your milkshake, order yourself a brownie or cookie. When you get your food, crumble the brownie or cookie up into small pieces and mix it into your milkshake to give yourself a brownie or cookie milkshake!

Upgrade your Chick-n-Minis

Chick-n-Minis are pretty epic already, but there’s an upgrade waiting for those willing to try it.


Order yourself Chick-n-Minis, hashbrowns, and your sauce of choice. Open the top of your Chick-n-Mini, place a hashbrown and a dollop of the sauce on top of the chicken and close the bread on top. You may never be able to eat Chick-n-Minis normally ever again!

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich

Who wouldn’t want an ice cream cookie sandwich from Chick-fil-A?


Order yourself ice cream (in a cup is easiest) and two chocolate chip cookies. Use a spoon to spread the ice cream on the bottom of one cookie, then place the other on top. Viola! A Chick-fil-A ice cream cookie sandwich. If you know anything about us, you know we love an ice cream sandwich hack!

Grilled Cheese

Yes, you can get grilled cheese at Chick-Fil-A!


To get a grilled cheese, order yourself a toasted bun with a slice of cheese on top. You can also ask for additional toppings if you’d like including tomato and lettuce. This is a good option for any plant-based eaters who don’t eat the chicken at Chick-fil-A!

Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese

Looking for some more spice? Try the Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese!


Order nuggets (grilled or breaded) along with mac & cheese, buffalo sauce, and ranch (if you desire). Chop up the nuggets and mix all the ingredients together in the mac & cheese container to make this meal!


If you’re on the lookout for more fast food news, a special Halloween sandwich is at Burger King for a limited time and a retired Taco Bell item is returning soon as well! If you’re more of a KFC fan, you can look forward to mac & cheese friend chicken wraps as well. Stay tuned to DFB for all the latest big fast food announcements both inside and outside of Disney.

We got an adult Happy Meal at McDonald’s — here’s what it was like!
