Favorite snacks and drinks

Has anyone tried one of these drinks? I know they are for kids, but like most everything at Disney I bet grownups want them too.

Also, anyone have a "must have" for snacks or drinks?

Well since you asked, my favorite and must have snack has got to be "Zebra Domes" which are available from the Mara (AKL snack bar) and from Boma at the buffet dessert table. Simply scrumptious. awesome

My vote is for the kringla from the bakery at Norway. The sweet almond-covered pretzel goes so well with either coffee or tea, and just a perfect snack to munch on while waiting for the start of Illuminations.

Wow, Zapper, that almond covered pretzel looks amazing. I am thinking that I need to get one of those, even if it means eating it in the car on the way home from the World. I usually get something special to eat on the way home, to ease the transition. mickey mickey

I often buy one and pack it into my carry on right before we leave for the airport. Then on the plane, I would take it out, and eat it as a snack. I usually get quick glances from the person next to me, and more frequently than not, he/she would ask me where I got that. And some time, I would give him/her a piece, and I always get this amazed reaction at how good it is.

OK, I should not have talked about this thing, because I now have a serious craving for it. Damn it!

I am so glad that others do that too! In the past I have taken home a carrot cake cookie for the road. This trip, it is the kringla. Thank you for sharing. mickey

Thanks Zz for sharing. I just added this to my to-do-list for my trip in September. I reminds me of an almond pastry that a dear friend of mine (who has sinced passed on) made. It was heavenly.

Zz, that does look good.

For snacks, I usually just have a Dole Whip. I definitely have to try more snacks.

After first experiencing the dole whip last summer yes I love them - I had yes HAD to introduce them to my friends last week!!

My favourite snack would be a chocolate coated strawberry - closely followed by glazed almonds/pecans which I hate sharing!!

On our exit last week we called into the candy store where they were giving samples of a Goofy Apple - if I hadn't been heading for my flight I would have been tempted! At ten dollars its a lot but worth it Wink

I love, love, LOVE the Italian Margaritas in Italy and the Yak Attack at Yak & Yeti (even DH liked this one and he is not big on alcohol). I didn't get to experience too many of their traditional snacks last time we were there since I mostly went for the F&WF booths for snacks, but I did love the waffle sandwhiches at Sleepy Hollow and the Red Velvet Cheesecake cupcake from Starring Rolls.

Doofenslurpers don't look like my kind of drink.

My favorite WDW snack - popcorn always, I have to get popcorn at least once and usually more than once per trip. Yes, I know, we have popcorn at home. But I just love popcorn as a park snack. Popcorn is my favorite snack at both DHS and MK, although I have been known to get an occasional ice cream, Dole Whip, or cupcake.

We love the eggrolls at the Joy of Tea stand near Epcot's China pavilion. Darn good eggrolls. Also, since we usually go to WDW during the Food and Wine Festival, the choice of snacks is pretty much endless. On Epcot days we don't eat a single sit-down meal (either table or counter service), we just graze the festival booths.

At AK there's an ice cream cart in the Asia section that sells delicious frozen fruit bars. And the eggrolls at Yak and Yeti counter service are pretty good.

As for drinks, I must stop at Club Cool for a little Beverly every time I pass by. I sample some of the other options also, but always get Beverly. Otherwise I usually drink water around the parks. If I'm in the mood for an adult beverage, I usually get wine since I'm a lightweight when it comes to alcohol. At F&W Fest I like the sparkling pomegranate kir at the France booth and the sangria at the Morocco booth. If I'm in the mood for just straight-up wine I love dry riesling, pinot grigio, Aussie shiraz, and malbec, although I'm happy to try other wines. I'd never list merlot as a favorite, and yet every time I get a glass of merlot I love it, so maybe it does belong on my list.

I'm reopening this thread.. Smile

My fave snack has to be the Caramel Ginger ice cream from the little tea cart in the China Pavillion at Epcot. It is definitely a must-have every time I go to Epcot!

The chocolate Danish from the coffee kiosk near Canada was amazing. And of course Dole whip. I got to have an almost dole whip this week. The frozen yogurt place here had pineapple. The flavor was close but the texture was off.

I too like the Grey Goose slushys. I like 'The Comet' at the Sci-Fi Drive-In and of course, a pint of Strongbow at the Rose & Crown for some good people watching refreshment.

Sort of a blury picture. But here's one of my wife and I enjoying our Comet and Space Invader (blue drink) on our last trip.

My favorite snack is Norway's School Bread. My lord, I love that stuff.

WOW! I have my work cut out for me next week. My family and I will do our best to sample all of the above if possible. Not a huge fan of beer in general, so I'll leave that to my husband this summer.
Thanks for everyone's input!! awesome
