What Food Do Theme Park Fans Crave Most?

September 6, 2020, 4:08 PM · Who's hungry for a theme park visit?

The Labor Day weekend is supposed to be the end of the summer vacation season in the United States. The pandemic kept that season from taking flight this year, even if locals are filling Disney and Universal to capacity in Central Florida today. So I suspect that many Theme Park Insider readers elsewhere are feeling hungry for a trip — perhaps literally.

Last week, I asked Theme Park Insider's Twitter followers, "If you could have any theme park food delivered to your home, right now, what would it be?" This week, I'd like to put some of the leading responses up for a vote — to find the one theme park food that people in our community crave most.

King's Gotta Eat

Now keep in mind that by bringing up the idea of delivery, I think a lot of readers ruled out a lot of popular frozen treats that wouldn't survive the trip home. And I did ask specifically for "food" and not drinks, so that likely limited the responses, as well.

But you came up with some great candidates here. We've got food from Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Cedar Point, Dollywood, and Silver Dollar City on our list. Heck, if you're dreaming of a 2021 theme park road trip, this menu would provide the foundation for an excellent itinerary.

But for now, you can pick only one. So which one is it?

I get cravings for whohash or pizza fries sometimes.

Never had the cinnamon bread, yet I’ve heard it’s amazing and gets my vote

Tough decision between cinnamon bread and Disneyland corn dog! Had to go with cinnamon bread though.

Had to vote for Via Napoli. I actually prefer the fried fish at the walk-up stand adjacent to the Rose & Crowne at Epcot over Hogwarts. The chips are a big meh but the fish is dynamite

Dole whip

That is all.

None of those items sounded special to me and I wouldn't bother ordering them but I voted for the Cinnamon bread cause it sounds the best.

My treat would definitely be butter beer! That's the only theme park food I don't care about spending money on. I have to give it to Disney though Dole Whip would be pretty great to get at home too! :)

Theme park food has never impressed me much so I can't vote for any of the suggestions. My guess would be that the same food eaten at home wouldn't rank near as high as at the park. My friend is a chef and she says that people eat with their eyes first, then their mouth. To be impressive, theme park food needs to be eaten in a theme park setting.

Wet blankets are the best. Nothing helps me sleep better at night. LMAO

I still dream about the upside down pineapple cake I had at the dole whip counter in MK. It was heavenly...
