“When Disney calls and says they have some treats to give us…” is the opening line of a touching video shared via Twitter by the Orlando Police Department, as an expression of gratitude to Disney for a recent donation of Disney Parks snacks.
The department expressed “Disney, on behalf of the Orlando Police Department, thank you for this generous gesture.”
Selma’s Cookies (which you’ll spot in many a confectionery case around Disney World at places like Zuri’s Sweets Shop in Animal Kingdom, Main Street Confectionery and Big Top Treats in Magic Kingdom and beyond), flavored Main Street Popcorn, and packaged Krispie Treats were among the donated offerings.
It was also shared that not only will members of the agency have the chance to enjoy the treats, but they will “also share them with our community whenever we can.”

While Disney Parks around the world including Walt Disney World and Disneyland are closed “until further notice,” Disney has also donated excess food to local communities in need in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank.
