Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re getting down to the serious business of ranking our 10 favorite Disney snacks!
We’ve gathered 10 iconic Disney snacks that you can find all over the parks and resorts and…ranked them!
We’ve got all the latest in our What’s New at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom! Come along while we share lots of menu changes, loads of 20th Anniversary merchandise, and a few construction updates!
The Smiling Crocodile has dropped the Salmon BLT from the menu, but the Turkey BLT and Pimento-Cheese BLT happily remain!
How ’bout just one more: we love it in Refillable Popcorn Buckets. Like, LOVE it in refillable buckets. Because the only thing better than popcorn is more popcorn.
So imagine our happy dance upon discovering a new flavored popcorn with the refill option in the Magic Kingdom: MAPLE! It’s available only at the Frontierland Popcorn Cart. [Editor’s Update: Please note, the Frontierland Popcorn Cart no longer has MaplePopcorn, BUT you can find it popped fresh in Epcot’s Canada Pavilion!]
The menu here is pretty straightforward. You can grab a beverage, an ice cream treat, or, you know, POPCORN.
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!
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.
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.
Snacking with a special diet or allergy can be tricky at Walt Disney World, but Disney has released something that might make life a little easier!
Pure Growth Organic Snacks are, at a minimum, organic and all natural. While these grab-and-go snacks aren’t hearty meals, families can stash them in a backpack and eat on the go or in line. And, as a bonus, they come with Disney characters on the packaging to make them feel like a more magical snack!
We’re poppin’ in with a couple of updates for you regarding the Refillable Popcorn Bucket program in Disney World!
In case you missed the original buzz, Refillable Popcorn Buckets hit the scene in late June. Guests could purchase a souvenir Popcorn Bucket at select Popcorn Carts around Disney World for $10.00 and have it refilled at any Popcorn Cart on property (no matter where the original Bucket was purchased) for $1.50 for the remainder of the day. [Editor’s Update: Please note, the refill price increased to $1.75 in March 2018.]
The program was originally scheduled to run through September 1st. However, September 1st has come and gone… and the Refillable Popcorn Buckets are still up for grabs! At Magic Kingdom, they’ve even received a spooky little makeover in honor of the arrival of Halloween. [Read more…]
It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for… if you LOVE grabbing lots and lots of POPCORN at Disney World, that is!
A Refillable Popcorn Bucket is now available at Disney World parks! [Read more…]
We can hardly contain our excitement around here because we are just DAYS away from the start of the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
It was another week full of big news stories including an opening date for Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar and a big change to the popcorn at the Disney theme parks!
We have a lot to share, so let’s jump right in…
Hmmm… so, if your bucket of Disney Popcorn tastes a little different the next time you grab a piping hot batch along Main Street, U.S.A. (or anywhere else in Disney World or Disneyland, for that matter), here’s why…
Pop Secret has been named the “official popcorn” of Disney World and Disneyland, and will be popped up for guests at popcorn carts and kiosks throughout Disney properties. [Read more…]
I’ve always known that the Tokyo Disney Resort had multiple popcorn flavors, but I really had no idea how serious the popcorn game there was until I saw it for myself. It’s really like its own micro-culture.
People bring their collectable & rare resort buckets from the past and have them refilled, some people wear more than one popcorn bucket at a time, and we even had people offering us samples right out of their buckets. It’s seriously SO MUCH FUN!
Popcorn is so popular, there’s even popcorn themed merchandise that lists some of the many flavors available. Look at this fun zipper pouch I bought: Delicious Explosion Popcorn!
Another fun popcorn fact? Tokyo Disney has Roastie Toasties just like Disneyland here in Anaheim. Not all of the stands have them, but several do. To see more about Roastie Toasties & Disney Popcorn in the states, check out this great Popcorn Gallery post AJ did a while back. There’s also a fun little video on the Disney Parks Blog here.
We made it a goal on our recent trip to Tokyo to try as many types of popcorn that we could. Although we missed a few, we did a pretty good job in our 4 days at the parks. Now, on to the flavors!
Let’s start with one that I was a little unsure about but it ended up being my absolute favorite. So much so that we had it twice on our trip! Soy Sauce and Butter. It’s salty, savory and delicious. We found this cart at Tokyo Disneyland park.
You can see that this cart has its own little roastie toastie Christmas Clown; I love that he is dressed for the season. Also, please note that there are [Read more…]
