Award season is upon us and you know what that means … it’s time for the Second Annual Disney Parks Moms Panel Awards. With the help of more than 150 current and former panelists, we are awarding top honors to some our panelists’ favorites, and they just might be your favorites too! We have worked hard to calculate the votes and over the next several weeks we will present our winners for all things Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort and Disney Cruise Line.

This week we will be awarding this prestigious honor to some of our much loved snacks, attractions and even special events at Walt Disney World Resort. Let’s see what the panelists have selected as their top choices:

Disney Parks Moms Panel Award for Favorite Snack - Dole Whip

Category: Favorite Snack
And the winner is … the ever popular, can’t live without it … Dole Whip. For the second year in a row the Dole Whip ran away with the victory, with the beloved Mickey Premium Bar as a distant second. A few honorable mentions go to popcorn, churros and the carrot cake cookie. Yum!

Disney Parks Moms Panel Award for Favorite Attraction for Preschoolers - Peter Pan's Flight

Category: Favorite Attraction for Preschoolers
This one was so close, separated by only two votes, but in the end Peter Pan’s Flight was the winner with second-place going to last year’s winner, “it’s a small world.” Other favorites included Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid. All sure to be a favorite for your little one as well.

Another two time winner, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a must do for families visiting Walt Disney World Resort in the Fall.

Disney Parks Moms Panel Award for Favorite Disney Springs Activity - Dining
