It’s Snacktime: Finding Favorite Treats at Walt Disney World

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center

There are just so many snack options when visiting a Disney Park that the tough part is figuring out just what to snack on. Here are a few of my favorites that are helping me keep my stamina while the Coolest Summer Ever keeps moving on here in Florida.

You scream, I scream, we all scream for six ice creams!

Truth: ice cream is my treat. I would live off of it, if allowed. So when someone suggested eating one of everything from the ice cream cart, I’m game. Have you ever seen me look so happy as I do above? The Mickey Premium Bar continues to be my top pick!

Oh, ice cream not your thing? You want something salty?

Popcorn – you can’t go wrong with this choice at Walt Disney World. It’s the best popcorn on earth in my humble opinion.

Maybe, a bit of sweet and sour is your game when it comes to picking a snack.

Goofy’s Candy Co.’s Mostly Sour Powder Candy is a fun treat. At the Confectionery on Main Street, U.S.A., I was able to create-my-own by picking my favorite flavors. This snack brings me back to childhood. I can’t even remember the last time I’ve enjoyed a snack like this.

I’ll be back one final time with some dinnertime selections. Yes, I’ll be hungry for dinner – no need to worry! In the meantime, tell us in the comments section what your favorite Disney Parks treat is!

It’s Lunchtime at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort

It’s lunchtime and I have a hankerin’ for a turkey leg. Don’t mind if I do! I even traveled to Frontierland just so I could snap a shot with my turkey leg while wearing a coonskin cap. It seemed so apropos.

Turkey Leg

When I eat a meal, I often find myself craving something sweet (especially while visiting a Disney Park). This delicious churro sure did do the trick. Afterwards, I burned off some of those churro calories taking a tour of the Swiss Family Treehouse. So. Many. Stairs.

Orange bird drink

I needed a beverage to go with my turkey leg and churro. So I stopped and got a Diet Coke in one of these awesome Orange Bird sippers from the Sunshine Tree Terrace. (I even took a breather after those Treehouse stairs to enjoy it.) Everything tastes better, I swear, when you’re sipping it from inside of one of these awesome beverage vessels!

I’ll be back again soon with some more snackin’ fun.

Enjoying 24 Hours of Snacks at Magic Kingdom Park

When they asked me to spend the day snacking my way around Magic Kingdom Park to kick off the Coolest Summer Ever at Walt Disney World Resort, I was honored. It is not every day you find yourself getting paid to eat delicious treats. I kicked off my morning with a trip to Starbucks on Main Street, U.S.A.

I love starting my day with a Iced Skinny Vanilla Latte. Not only does it give me a morning boost, it’s delicious. Plus, it is super awesome that I can visit a Starbucks inside a Disney Park! After enjoying my coffee, I needed a snack to keep my energy going.

As you may recall, I love food shaped like a character. And ‘oh boy’ did this Mickey Pretzel hit the spot. I enjoyed it as I relaxed on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover and took a tour of Tomorrowland. Afterwards, I decided to quench my thirst.

This blue slush from Storybook Circus not only was delicious, but turned my tongue a nice shade of blue. I took it all in as I cooled off near the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station.

I’ll be back soon enough with some lunchtime food fun. Stay tuned!

This week in 2000 the film “Dinosaur” was released. “Dinosaur” stars an iguanodon, Aladar, who should be familiar to fans of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the attraction DINOSAUR in DinoLand, U.S.A.

When Disney’s Animal Kingdom opened in 1998, this attraction went by the name Countdown to Extinction. In fact, on the Time Rovers you can still see CTX written on the vehicles.
