What is Your Favorite Thing to Eat at Disneyland?
With crowds filling queues at the Disneyland Resort (and other theme parks around the world), many frequent theme park visitors use this time of year to skip the most popular rides and choose instead to enjoy some of their favorite parks' other delights.
In my Orange County Register column this week, I write about 10 favorite snacks and treats at the Disneyland Resort, then offer five suggestions for treats from other Disney parks around the world that I would love to see Disney bring to Anaheim.
Okay, it's more a meal than a snack, but the Harbour Galley's barbecue chicken baked potato made my list top tasty treats at the Disneyland Resort.
At the end of the column, I ask readers to offer their picks for favorite theme park snacks, not just at Disneyland, but from other parks as well. So I'll make the same offer to you — what are your favorite theme park snacks? Ideally, we're looking for snacks that are unique to specific park or chain, as opposed to a treat you can find anywhere. Tell us you picks in the comments, and I'll feature the most popular ones in a future Register column.
From the gone but not forgotten file - Six Flags over Georgia's Cherry Berry. It was a frozen cherry flavored sherbert on a plastic stick. The top of the stick was a plastic figure (I most remember a donkey, but I think there was also a cowboy) that you would uncover as you ate the Cherry Berry. SFOG brought them back I believe during the park's recent 40th anniversary, and I believe the same item is still sold at Six Flags over Texas under the name, "Pink Thing". Sadly, they don't continue to sell them on a daily basis. Very sadly.
Butter Beer - hahahaha - I had too..
I definitely can't go to a Disney resort and leave without eating popcorn at least once. I honestly don't know what is their secret, but it is the perfect amount of salt and butter for my taste.
My favorite snack in Walt Disney World is the Magic Kingdom's Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle, found at Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square. It's the perfect blend of light yet filling, it's somewhat healthy yet also pretty decadent, and it's big enough to share. Perfect mid-morning treat to tide you over until lunch!
It's not really a snack item, but the Monte Cristo (now only available at the Blue Bayou) should be a right of passage for all 1st time Disneyland guests.
Lumberjack's Chips with Cheese and Bacon - Silver Dollar City
The Warm Gooey Chocolate Banana Cake at Mythos, IOA, Universal Orlando.
Larosa's pizza at Kings Island.
Dollywood's cinnamon bread and King's Island blue ice cream.
My favorite thing has to be Bengal BBQ. Specifically the beef skewers. my mouth waters just thinking about them
Wow, James, that's a pretty impressive list!
Kennywood had an Icee with soft serve added which I think was called an Iceberg. Regardless, it was tasty on a hot day.
Disneyland - Safari Skewer (bacon wrapped asparagus) at Bengal BBQ, a single piece of fried chicken from Plaza Inn - yes you can buy them by the piece! The full platter is a filling meal but one piece makes for the perfect savory snack.
I'm not sure anything can compare to the chocolate mousse in France at Epcot. Nothing like finishing off a Mousse and a margarita from Mexico while waiting for IllumiNations.
