    Stephanie from MI Asked

    When I booked my trip, I decided to go with the quick service dining. I am wondering if there are any suggetions about which snacks to get at each of the parks? This is my husband and son's first time out of MI and I want it as special as possible. Thanks!

    Stephanie:

    For me, it's all about the dining at Disney--snacks included!  Here are my recommendations:
    • Magic Kingdom: The DoleWhip Pineapple Float at Aloha Isle in Adventureland tops my list. No one will know your husband and son are first-timers when they order this cult favorite!  If you're looking for value, the Baked Potatoes at Liberty Square Market are considered snacks as well as the Fruit Smoothies at Auntie Gravities in Tomorrowland.
    • Epcot: It's hard to resist anything in the pastry case at France's Boulangerie Patisserie. My personal favorite is the fruit tart with four different fruits including strawberry and kiwi--yum!) The last time I went, you could also get one of their ham croissants as a snack, but keep in mind that Disney seems to tighten the rules on snacks every year. This one was definitely a good value. FYI: If you're visiting during the Food & Wine festival, using snack credits for the kiosk samples is the way to go.
    • Animal Kingdom: I don't know what it is about this park, but I always feel like I need to eat better...Harambe Fruit Market has several fresh fruit bowls and there is an Egg Roll cart in the park that typically sits on the path between Africa and Asia. But if that's not how you roll, you can get a hot fudge sundae at Dino-Bites in Dinoland.
    • Hollywood Studios: Although I wish the Turkey leg cart near Rock 'n' Roller Coaster took snack credits (as that is the quintessential must-do for a theme-park snack), alas, I have to blow my snack credits at Starring Rolls. Their desserts slice up larger than other locations for some reason. 
    Honorable Mention: At some point, you must try a Mickey Bar. The dark chocolate coating will make you forget other ice cream bars. I just have a hard time spending a snack credit on it.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
