Nope. I want to eat the stuff I actually like, and most of that list doesn't qualify. I could do a turkey leg, though, providing hubby shares it with me. Also the popcorn, chicken waffle, and frozen Coke. Then I'd add corn dog nuggets, roasted corn on the cob, and a root beer float to my list.

Every single time I have tried to get the corn on the cob they have been out. mad I LOVE corn and I want some from MK so bad. Maybe it will have to be my FIRST stop next month. Breakfast pre-park opening at Be Our Guest then wait on corn! laugh

I must have gone back and forth for at least 30 minutes trying to make up my mind if I should add these.

1) Mickey Krispie Treat - yes, but only because I got a free one. I'm not a rice crispy treat fan
2) Citrus Swirl - nope (we're talking about a drink at Sunshine Tree Terrace, right? Not the former orange version of the Dole Whip?)
3) Dole Whip - I liked the orange soft serve from Aloha Aisle. Sadly, it seems to be no more.
4) Churros - yes, but never in Magic Kingdom, only at La Cantina de San Angel
5) Mickey Mouse Soft Pretzel - yes, but only the stuffed with cream cheese variety
6) Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle - yes & love it. my new go-to lunch
6) Raspberry Lemonade Slush - nope, but sounds tasty
7) Freshly Popped Popcorn - nope, I only eat popcorn at the movies
8 ) Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar - yes, good, but I'll usually opt for a dessert that I won't manage to spill on myself
9) Character Caramel Apple - sort of, love the caramel apples from Germany, but have never had one at MK
10) Turkey Leg - nope, I'd maybe try one, but I'm much more a chicken person than a turkey person
11) Mint Chocolate Chip Mickey Ears ice cream cone from Main Street Ice Cream Parlor

LoL - How do you feel about ham? The Turkey legs always taste like ham to me. I don't like them, but my son has to get one every time.

Ham is also not a go-to for me, but I do enjoy it on occasion. I like the taste of turkey, but I'm a dark meat fan unless I'm making a sandwich and I don't like the greasy feel of dark meat on a turkey. I prefer it dried out a little bit--more like turkey jerky. laugh Benn and I had a conversation the other day that went like this:

me: "I'm not a very picky eater. I like most things."
Benn: *raised eyebrow*
me: "Well ok except mushrooms and pineapples and blueberries."
Benn: um...
me: "oh yeah and cucumbers and cantaloupe and honeydew and peaches and pears and cherries and celery and carrots and cake and fruit pie and whipped cream and sausage and bacon fat (I love bacon, but I cut the fat off of the meat) and hotdogs and...
me: "ok never mind. I'm a really picky eater."

I'd try everything except the turkey leg! I just...no! That thing is bigger than me and carrying it around would be a workout in itself, it looks so greasy and....no, I just can't!

In all of WDW my only craving is for school bread. Might do a Dole Whip though.

1) Mickey Krispie Treat- yes I usually get one with Chocolate ears though, as a gluten free person I can actually still eat these ya!
2) Citrus Swirl- Never had it but sounds good so yes I would try it
3) Dole Whip- heck yes
4) Churros- Can't allergic! sad I would if I could though
5) Mickey Mouse Soft Pretzel- I used to LOVE these with Mustard, sadly they are on my list of can't haves.
6) Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle- This sounds AMAZING, I don't believe I can have this either, I have seen that they do offer Gluten Free Waffles at some locations but I am not sure here is one and the chicken is also fried. sad sad
6) Raspberry Lemonade Slush- Heck yes!
7) Freshly Popped Popcorn- Only in a Souvenir Can, will be getting one at the Halloween Party this year.
8 ) Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar- Always!
9) Character Caramel Apple- Yes, but not at the Magic Kingdom I usually get one of these towards the end of the trip and get it boxed up to bring home.
10) Turkey Leg- Yuck! No way!
11) Frozen Coke- Ew... I would go for another flavor but not frozen coke.

That being said I don't think I could ever hold that much in my stomach and still walk around the park! I would be so full!!!! Here is one thing I didn't see on the list, which we always did pre gluten free life.

Giant Cinnamon Bun at the Main Street Bakery for breakfast (which according to their menu doesn't even look like they have anymore)

I don't think they've had them since they switched to Starbucks, but they do have cinnamon buns at Gaston's Tavern.

What Allie said - the Cinnamon Buns were moved to Gastons (and changed slightly I think) when Starbucks took ovre the Bakery.

I would agree with 1, both 6, 7,8,9 defo not 10 and 11.

The weirdest thing I saw was back in 2003 when someone was eating a turkey leg whilst riding Space Mountain! I like turkey (a lot) but the legs look gross.

Not something we would make an effort to get. it was okay but not special.

I'd rather have an order of Casey's FF's.
