Well, it was a pretzel kind of day on Friday in the Magic Kingdom and Epcot!
I sampled the famed Jalapeno Cheese Pretzel — now found at Fife and Drum — for the very first time, found out some details about the Sweet Cream Cheese pretzel in the Magic Kingdom, and learned more about the new (to WDW) Mickey-shaped pretzels!
Epcot’s Fife and Drum Offers Jalapeno Cheese, and Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzels
That’s right! We though they could only be found in one place in the parks (Animal Kingdom for the Jalapeno pretzel; Magic Kingdom for the Sweet Cream Cheese pretzel), but they can both be found in Epcot these days!
Epcot’s Fife and Drum, right outside of the American Adventure building, is the unassuming home for these very popular and sought after snacks! This spot is next to the near the Liberty Inn, so find a seat at the outdoor seating area there!
I had the chance to try the Jalapeno Cheese pretzel for the first time on Saturday! These snazzy snacks ($4.29) offer a spicy twist to a theme park staple!
The spicy kick is relatively mild, but still discernible. This is a good snack for those who aren’t necessarily “heat-eaters,” but who don’t mind a somewhat different savory flavor from time to time.
Personally, I really enjoyed this one! I had a hard time not eating the whole thing!!
Magic Kingdom Lunching Pad Under Refurbishment; Cool Ship Selling Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzel
While Lunching Pad in the Magic Kingdom is closed for refurbishment (was slated to re-open September 16th), cream cheese pretzel fans can walk their cravings over to the Cool Ship.
It’s just across the way in Tomorrowland. See an in-depth review of this snack here. It’s got a tangy and not overly sweet flavor!
Mickey Pretzels Are Here to Stay…We Hope
Mickey Pretzels ARE in the Magic Kingdom at Frontierland (though we’d heard rumors that they weren’t around any longer).
We were told that they’re a permanent fixture as long as they keep selling, but readers have reported NOT seeing them from time to time over the past month.
When available, the Mickey pretzels sell for $4.50. Don’t forget your plastic cheese!
Whew!! That’s a lot of pretzel news! If you hear any details or updates, please let us know.
