Guest Review: Cross-Country Disney Day — Iconic Treats from Six Disney Parks in One Day

Wow!!! Guest author (and an awesome friend who always sends me the best photos of Disney food!) Lori Fries, takes us on a whirlwind, coast-to-coast tour of six parks in one day. Let’s see what food she sampled!

If you are like me, you love BOTH Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. I achieved my top item on my bucket-list and went to all 6 parks — four in Disney World and two in Disneyland — on the same day!

Six Parks, One Day Treats

Six Parks, One Day Treats

Picking one snack in each park brings with it a unique set of challenges. For the first time in modern memory, I didn’t want to go to a park and pick what I felt like eating at the time. Seasonal treats have always held a special place on my Must Do Disney Food List, but I wanted to go with iconic treats.

There is an entirely different set of things I love to eat on both coasts. I could go to Epcot and fill my stomach around World Showcase. My trip was even during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival! That is a different challenge.

Would I pick things only served on a stick to make an easy getaway to the next destination? Nope. That would rule out some classics like the Mickey pretzel.

Here is what I did. My first stop was Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Animal Kingdom

Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
To me, vanilla ice cream covered in chocolate in the shape of Mickey Mouse’s silhouette screams Disney snack at its finest.
You can find them at ice cream carts and restaurants throughout the parks in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Not only can you get them from all the parks but all the resorts as well. I also knew that the carts are opened before the official park opening.

News: Dole Whip Now Available at Disney Springs Marketplace Snacks

I don’t know about you, but I can NOT get enough Dole Whip!

You know about the main places to get the Disney Cult Classic Snack in the Parks. Find it at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom and Tiki Juice Bar in Disneyland. The other classic spot to enjoy this refreshing treat is Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort (and now at the Coffee House in Disneyland Hotel — but more on that later!).

PLUS, in the past couple of years, Dole Whip — sometimes called Pineapple Soft Serve — has popped up at Epcot during the Flower and Garden Festival as well as the Food and Wine Festival. And it seems to be a mainstay on the menu at Disney’s Animal Kingdom these days, too. Find it at Tamu Tamu Refreshments. [Read more…]

Tour of Quick Service Eats at Disney World’s Blizzard Beach

With Memorial Day weekend behind us, summer has unofficially begun. So grab your towel, OODLES of sunscreen, and (Swim) SUIT UP… because I can’t think of a better place to kick off the season than BLIZZARD BEACH!!!

Blizzard Beach

Blizzard Beach

I don’t know about you, but fewer things make me as hungry as a day of splashing the day away at one of Disney World’s two water parks (Blizzard Beach’s counterpart is Typhoon Lagoon). So we thought it would be fun to take you on a little tour of the Quick Service spots around Blizzard Beach and grab a bite or two while we’re at it. We’ll start our tour at one of the first buildings you see as you enter the park.  [Read more…]

Disneyland Hack: Tajin Dole Whips

How can you possibly improve upon a Dole Whip in Disneyland?! We recently heard about a Disneyland Hack that might just make this must-have treat even more desirable, and our Disneyland guru Heather Sievers headed over to investigate!

Yep — Disneylanders in the know are dousing their dole whip with Tajin®!

But this add-on isn’t on the menu. Let me give you a little step by step…

Step 1: After you get into Disneyland, do NOT get your Dole Whip first! Stop by Tropical Imports — home of better-for-you snacks like whole fruit — in Adventureland. (Bonus points for spotting Pluto for the 2016 Egg-stravaganza!).
