Time for the 'Best Bite in a Theme Park' tournament
It's summer, and time for another Theme Park Insider reader tournament!
This time, we're voting on food -- not on restaurants, but on individual items. What is the single best thing to eat or drink at a theme park -- the best snack, appetizer, entree or beverage? We need you to submit your favorites, then I'll sum up the picks, seed the top nominees in brackets and open up the voting.
Please try to be specific when submit a pick -- if you can tell us the place and park where you get it, that would be helpful to me in setting up the brackets. Don't just submit "churros," tell us where the best churros are to be found, if that's what you want to nominate.
Start the campaigning in the comments, if you'd like, or feel free to ask any questions about this tournament. And let the tastiest treat win!
Update: Duh. The timing: Get your nominations in by this Friday. I want to announce the brackets and start voting Monday.
Well, out of all the times I have been to theme parks: I don't realy know. My picks would be Dole Whip from Disney and Vault-Icee.
Early nominees include (in no particular order):
Something tells me there should be some Mythos things:
Hmmm this was tough narrowing it down.
For me it has to be:
I loooooooove the "breakfast fajita" in the Rainforest cafe, its Bacon,Sausage,scrambled eggs all wrapped up in a flour tortilla then topped with tomato sauce and cheese its scummy!!!!
The sausage platter from Festhaus in Busch Gardens Europe
I love parks that have good food - it really makes a difference when it comes down to how enjoyable the trip is!
The Boysenberry turnovers right outside Knotts Berry Farm are absolutely delicious for a snack.
Churros with chocolate dipping sauce at the Fun Town Market in Legoland. They put DL's churros to shame.
Risotto of the Day - Mythos, Islands of Adventure
I can't believe you all missed the best theme park "snack" ever. popcorn @ anywhere in the Magic Kingdom in WDW. I don't know why, but they do the best popcorn anywhere not just against theme parks!
Sampler platter, especially the Cannelloni- Italian Pavilion, BGE
I know it went away. Tutto Italiano is great too (food is still excellent).
veggie burger at the electric umbrella (Future World, EPCOT)
Something that isn't necessarily on the menu but is excellent would be Chicken Enchiladas from Mexico Pavilion in EPCOT
And something that's is awesome, but not really in a theme park is the Beignet's from The Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney right next to Disneyland. Yeah, they're Homer Simpson food, but yum-EEEEEE!
You can get beignets in Disneyland Park, next to Pirates of the Caribbean. Been so long since I've had them, though, that I can't say if they are the same as Brennan's.
There's NOTHING better than free sodas at Holiday World- unlimited, all day, every day!
Darn, my favorite won't have a chance, because hardly anyone here has been to Japan. The Gyoza Dogs from DisneySea really live up to their reputation - best bite I've ever had at a theme park. And we went early, so we only had to wait in line 20 minutes to get them!
The ribs from the Flame Tree BBQ in Animal Kingdom are hard to beat.
The number 1 food item of all time: French Fries from Circus McGircus in Universal's Islands of Adventure. Hands down.
Any of the BBQ items at dollywood
The one food that has become essential to my Disney experience is clam chowder in a bread bowl. Nothing like buying one and watching the fireworks from new orleans square.
My vote -- The Mickey Ice Cream Bar at Disney World or Disneyland! It is a "must have" on my vists!
For me it has to be:
