Disney's Animal Kingdom & Blizzard Beach - Your Favorite FoodsWalt Disney World: List your favorite food stuffs at Walt Disney World's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Blizzard Beach Water Park.
From James RaoWe recently had some discussions about people’s favorite foods to eat while visiting WDW's Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. Continuing in that vein, what are some of YOUR favorite Animal Kingdom and Blizzard Beach food items? These items can be snacks, sandwiches, dinner platters, candy, ice cream, beverages...whatever. Just make sure you stick to a specific food item and mention where you bought it so others can benefit from your experience.

Please, try to keep your posts focused solely on Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach, and the nearby resorts (Animal Kingdom Lodge/Villas, Coronado Springs, and the All-Star Resorts).
Comments in chronological order. Most recent at the bottom. Scroll down to respond.
From Nick MarkhamAww, to bad it wasn't DHS instead of BB as I have most of my favorites at DHS... ;)

But still, if I had to choose, I do like the atmosphere of the Rainforest Cafe in Animal Kingdom.

Zebra Cupcakes at Kusafari Coffee Shop and Bakery
Breasticks at Pizzafari
Jalapeno Cheese Stuffed Pretzel at Pretzel Kiosks(I believe this is the only place you can find them now!)
Crispy Honey Chicken at Yak and Yeti. Was very good. Other dishes my family had were also yummy.
The snowballs at Arctic Expedition are great. Watermelon is my favorite!
The mini donuts are amazing here. Try all 3 dipping sauces. They are delicious!! I miss these!
As for regular food, there really isn't that much that is good here. I prefer the food at Typhoon Lagoon where they also have the donuts along with the great leaning palms with buffalo chicken pizza, fried chicken sandwich, and grilled cheese pretzel!
From Anthony MurphyBB's Donuts are excellent.

FLAME TREE BARBEQUE.
If there's a better counter service eatery anywhere at the Orlando Parks then I've yet to find it. Some come close but none better it.
From Anthony MurphyI second that statement Rob!

I also am a big fan of Pepper Market at Cornado Springs and Sanna at AKL
From Amanda JenkinsI haven't had as many eating experiences at Animal Kingdom. One thing I did enjoy was the Sweet and Sour Chicken from the Yak and Yeti counter service. Some of the best I have ever had. Our favorite snack when walking is the frozen lemonade cups. Favorite beverage: WATER from heat and a lot of walking. By the way, Merry Christmas everyone :-)

From Joshua CounsilAgree with the Garbage Pail. I'm a hefty guy, but I was able to split one of these three-ways and got more than my fair share. At $10, it's actually somewhat of a bargain.

From James RaoNice, Josh. Just what I want to see at a water park: the distended belly of a sunburned Canadian who ate way too much ice cream! =)

But, you're right. It is a heck of a bargain, something the whole family can share.
From David Kirby...and now that you've just called something at WDW a bargain, Disney management just cut the size of it in half while doubling the price.
