Voodoo Doughnuts has an Orlando location in CityWalk near Universal Orlando. This location is extremely popular and offers a variety of custom donuts. This popular chain offers many of the famous doughnuts offered at other locations. We visited this restaurant and gave it a try. Below you’ll find a review and some tips for making the most of your visit.
Orlando Voodoo Doughnut Information
The Portland-based chain boasts more than 50 delectable treats at this location and honestly seeing is believing. Some of them truly looked so good it almost felt like a crime to eat. We ended up trying 5 of the 50 plus flavors in a true family fashion we could not come up with a consensus order for the 5. Each member of the family had their favorite and one that did not particularly appeal to that member. Here are some things to keep in mind as you try out this must-see stop.
Handling the VooDoo Doughnuts Line
The length of the line will vary depending on the time of day. If you want to guarantee you will get the doughnut flavors you prefer, you will want to get in line early. If not, be prepared for waits that can be as low as fifteen minutes or as high as an hour or more. Some of this line will be in the shade while some will not. You can look at the menu lower in this post to get an idea of what you want to order when you get inside.
Inside Voodoo Doughnuts Citywalk
The theming for the restaurant was really over the top, in a great way. From the time you walk in to the time you leave you are greeted with bright colors, incredible aesthetics, and the distinct aroma of fresh donuts. One thing that every member of my family clamored to and fought to get a great look was the rotating carousel that greets you when you walk in.

On it lays most if not every flavor of donut served at the establishment. This gives patrons one last opportunity to make up their mind or as in our case one last opportunity to suggestively splurge. Also inside as is par in this area is a rather neat gift shop. For our family the highlight was the donut coffee mug that literally had a hole in the middle of it . All of us got a kick out of that,
Now as we said earlier we tried five of the 50 plus flavors. Most of the donuts were in the $2 range with some of the more specialty donuts costing more. The five flavors we tried we the ODB, O Captain My Captain, the Portland Cram, Eight Mile cake, and the Grape Ape. We all agreed that the actual yeast and cake part of the donut was really good. Though we did not agree on the order we all felt the Grape Ape was at or near the top of the list for everybody. I felt it tasted like purple nerds others felt it was more like a grape pixie stick but all of us liked the contrast that the sourness of the grape provided the initial sweet punch in the mouth.
R and I liked the O Captain my Captain as we felt once all the flavors came together, though you would not think so the Captain Crunch and the vanilla frosted donut melded to form a dream breakfast combination. The one donut that we all had toward the bottom of the list was the ODB. Chocolate frosting, Oreo crumbles and Peanut Butter should have been a win across the bar. However, I think Meagan summed up that one the best when she said, “ The peanut butter was so overpowering it was like biting straight into a jar of peanut butter.” Again, with all of that said with so many flavors your bound to find some you love and some you love not so much.
