Yesterday, readers narrowly selected Frontierland's Turkey Legs over the Blue Bayou's Monte Cristo Sandwich in our tournament to pick the best thing to eat at a theme park. Today, in the other semifinal, you'll get to pick between the Dole Whip served in Adventureland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom and Disneyland and the Hot Dog from Casey's Corner in the Magic Kingdom. Rave about your choice in the comments, please.

Tomorrow, we'll match the winner against the Turkey Legs in the tournament final!

This was an easy one for me.

Not a fan of hot dogs, and I love Pineapples! So I voted for the hot dog... j/k

Dole Whip will win all the way!

You know, its funny that this will come down to the Magic Kingdom vs the Magic Kingdom.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am a little surprised that this has come down to snack foods. I thought it would be with items that you could eat at actual counter service or sitdown resturants. Plus I voted for the dole whip. I do love pineapple

I think that price turned out to be a big issue for a lot of voters. That's, ultimately, what made the difference between the Monte Cristo and the turkey legs yesterday, IMHO.

When you think about it, more people will have bought the higher-volume, lower-priced snacks, so they would have a natural numbers advantage in these poll votes.

Now, if you gave people a Monte Cristo and a Turkey Leg, or Cheddar Cheese Soup and a Hot Dog, and asked them to pick their favorites in a taste test, without having to pay, then the results might have been different. But that's not what we were asking here.
