In AK, anything at the Flame Tree. I love the sitting area where you can watch Expedition Everest or watch the boat going by with the characters while they're waving at you. And Rum Runners at the Dawa Bar. Yummo!!

At MK the Dole Whip Float at the Aloha Isle in Adventureland :love:. Everytime I pass by there, I have to stop to get one.

Animal Kingdom - my favorite lunch is corn dog nuggets and a Coke slushie eaten at the little riverside area behind the slushie place. My favorite snack is the chocolate-covered banana

Downtown Disney - Earl of Sandwich (just about any of the sandwiches) followed by a sundae at Ghiradelli. My take-home treat (I pack gallon-sized Ziploc bags just for this treat) is a gingerbread Mickey, enrobed in dark chocolate, covered in Reese's peanut butter cups, and drizzled with dark chocolate

I like the chocolate mousse at the Boulangerie Patisserie and the strawberry crepes from the kiosk, both in France at Epcot.

I LOVE the frozen Lemonade...not the minute maid pre packaged stuff. The slushy goodness they hand scoop into the big clear plastic cups. I grab one everytime I see the cart, no matter what!

I also love the ice cream cookie sandwhiches from the mainstreet bakery.

DH loves the orange dole whip.

I am torn between two favorite snack foods, I just cannot choose between them. They both are healthy for you, and keep you feeling satisfied for a long time. This is great news for people on diets or just looking to maintain their weight. Snacking does not have to mean grabbing the first candy bar or piece of cake you see in the kitchen.

My first favorite snack is Sun Chips.

I have two varieties that I love. I love the regular kind, and also the cheddar cheese kind. This snack is proof that healthy food does not need to be tasteless and boring.

Sun chips have less saturated far than potato chips, less sodium, and no trans fat at all. All in all, it is a great choice for a snack. One serving is only about 140 calories. These chips have two grams of fiber in each serving, which is also great for keeping you feeling full longer.

Whole-grain snacks like this keep your energy levels high, and they also keep your blood sugar levels steadier than regular carbohydrates.

My second favorite food is almonds. Not roasted or salted; just regular almonds.

There are lots of organic companies that make plain almonds now, since they are being toted as a great nutritious snack. And, that it is. Almonds are very high in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, and they have no trans fat as well.

They are a great source of protein, which is great for having strong muscles. Almonds also help you feel satisfied longer. They are also great for getting rid of belly fat for this reason, and your concentration is always sharper if you eat protein.

You could eat these snacks at work or at home. They are easily portable. Sun chips now come in the 100-calorie boxes, and almonds could just go wrapped in foil or plastic wrap.

When eating snack foods like these, you are less likely to pick at unhealthy foods in between meals. Comfort food could mean healthy, and you feel even more comforted when you know you are adding healthy food to your body. With all that is going on in the world now, every one of us deserves so good comfort snacking.

These are also great for when you are watching television. They say that television viewing leads to weight gain because of more snacking, but who does not snack in front of the computer, while watching a good movie, or even while talking on the telephone? See, there are lots of instances when we feel like a snack. Now, you could eat these snacks without feeling guilty.

Also, exercise is just more fun after you know you ate healthy. These will definitely be the tools you need to maintain your weight, or to lose those extra pounds.

I don't try to eat health on vacation. I go on vacation to get away from my diet. :rotfl:

After hearing so much about them I will be getting a dole whip on my first day. One thing I always get is a churro :rolleyes1 Not exactly gourmet or unique I know but I think it is the memories of them from my childhood of having them every time we visited places like DL and Sea World. :goodvibes

The french fries from Yak and Yeti CS are great. They are thin and crispy- different from the usual Disney kind and count as a snack credit.

DS was able to get a ham and cheese croissant from the Boulangerie Patisserie that was delish.

We also have to have a cinnamon bun from Main St. Bakery, churros from Mexico, and an orange dole whip float from Aloha Isle.

Happy Snacking!

A lot of my favorites have already been mentioned, but here are a few others you should try!

The fresh waffle at Norway. It's really soft and has a pretty pattern (too pretty to eat, but I still eat it anyway! :lmao:), folded over with lingonberry jam inside (or strawberry, I don't remember). I think they dust powdered sugar on top too. It's really warm and fresh.

Also at Norway, the almond pretzel! You'll want to buy more than one of these because in my case, my family was picking at mine and ended up eating most of my snack! We had to leave to go somewhere else so I didn't get time to buy some more, but they're delicious.

I also like the roasted nuts that you can find at the carts. We usually get popcorn for the parades too.
Basically you can use your snack points for many snacks in the parks, and at the hotels. We stayed at CBR and the cheesecake was fantastic (which was bought with points). You will have no problem finding snacks!!!!

My favorite hands down, no question is the pretzels from Germany at Epcot- they are SO good - dark and slightly crunchy and soft and warm inside with a slight beer taste.

I crave them and have to get at least one per trip.

I'm with you!

MK - Love the dole whip w/vanilla...

AK - I ALWAYS have to have a frozen banana here. I don't think they used to be at many carts and I'd have to have one at AK, but this past visit I saw them at a few places.

BTW - I was SO upset 2 weeks ago when I sent my DH on a mission for caramel popcorn at Sleepy Hollow. I was saving our Spectro seats. He came back empty handed saying it wasn't on the menu. We found caramel corn at a cart, but I refused to believe it wasn't at Sleepy Hollow. Later in teh week we were walking passed Sleepy Hollow and (there was no line) I leaned over the queue and asked the cast member if they still sold caramel corn. He said, "No, sorry, but we used to." I was very sad, and now owed DH an apology for not believing him. It's just not the same when it's not served fresh!

What a great motto to live by and maintain a healthy life! Go You! At home I am like this too....but Sunchips are still really processed and not truly a health food. I make all our crackers and breads homemade to prevent HFCS and other artifical ingrediants. Fresh fruits and nuts all the way for me and no processed foods in our house plus four 1.5 hr workouts a week for me and the hubby.

BUT on vacation at Disney I DO NOT diet! We work hard to be healthy and like to treat ourselves to the "other side" sometimes.We look forward to the dining plan and our snacks! I eat whatever I want(which is usually not all of everything I order) and never gain a pound because we make sure to walk walk walk which is very easy to do at Disney.

With that said I am so looking forward to a cookie ice cream sandwich from Main St bakery (1st time this trip), and a Grand Manier Slush from France, oh and sweet almond pretzels and school bread from Norway.

I also love the Jalapeno Cheese Stuffed Pretzel. I found this by accident on our last trip in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom. I was trying to get a regular pretzel for my son, but the kiosk was out. They only had the Jalapeno Cheese ones. Since I had waited a while in line I went ahead and got it. I tasted it before giving it to my son to make sure it wasn't too spicy for him. It was so good that I got back in the long line to get one for everybody in our party. We had eaten a late breakfast at Tusker House and had a dinner reservation at Yak and Yeti. The pretzels were so big and filling that they ended up being our lunch. I will definitely be seeking out this kiosk again on our next visit.

I'm looking forward to trying it, but I'm concerned that Dole Whip was the most often "overrated" snack item mentioned in this thread:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2447443

My entire family loves Dole Whip Floats and looks forward to them every trip. It's really just a matter of taste, if you like pineapple then maybe you'll like them, or maybe not. Can't tell until you try. :) Everybody raves about the school bread at Norway and I thought it was gross and tasted weird. Like I said, a matter of personal taste.

I am torn between two favorite snack foods, I just cannot choose between them. They both are healthy for you, and keep you feeling satisfied for a long time. This is great news for people on diets or just looking to maintain their weight. Snacking does not have to mean grabbing the first candy bar or piece of cake you see in the kitchen.

My first favorite snack is Sun Chips.

I have two varieties that I love. I love the regular kind, and also the cheddar cheese kind. This snack is proof that healthy food does not need to be tasteless and boring.

Sun chips have less saturated far than potato chips, less sodium, and no trans fat at all. All in all, it is a great choice for a snack. One serving is only about 140 calories. These chips have two grams of fiber in each serving, which is also great for keeping you feeling full longer.

Whole-grain snacks like this keep your energy levels high, and they also keep your blood sugar levels steadier than regular carbohydrates.

My second favorite food is almonds. Not roasted or salted; just regular almonds.

There are lots of organic companies that make plain almonds now, since they are being toted as a great nutritious snack. And, that it is. Almonds are very high in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, and they have no trans fat as well.

They are a great source of protein, which is great for having strong muscles. Almonds also help you feel satisfied longer. They are also great for getting rid of belly fat for this reason, and your concentration is always sharper if you eat protein.

You could eat these snacks at work or at home. They are easily portable. Sun chips now come in the 100-calorie boxes, and almonds could just go wrapped in foil or plastic wrap.

When eating snack foods like these, you are less likely to pick at unhealthy foods in between meals. Comfort food could mean healthy, and you feel even more comforted when you know you are adding healthy food to your body. With all that is going on in the world now, every one of us deserves so good comfort snacking.

These are also great for when you are watching television. They say that television viewing leads to weight gain because of more snacking, but who does not snack in front of the computer, while watching a good movie, or even while talking on the telephone? See, there are lots of instances when we feel like a snack. Now, you could eat these snacks without feeling guilty.

Also, exercise is just more fun after you know you ate healthy. These will definitely be the tools you need to maintain your weight, or to lose those extra pounds.

I think the OP was asking about favorite snacks AT WDW, not at home. :)

Mickey Premium Bars :mickeybar and Popcorn popcorn:: from anywhere in the World!!

At the Magic Kingdom I love love love the ice cream cookie sandwiches at the Main Street Bakery (they are huge and I'm ashamed to admit I've eat a whole one on more than one occasion ;)). The sundaes from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor are amazing as well!

In Epcot you can't go wrong with anything from Boulangerie Patisserie, but my favorite snack there is the Napoleon. Also the chips from Yorkshire County Fish Shop. They are deep fried potatoes of love!

My favorites are the Dole Whip and the French pasteries, especially the LEMON TART (I'd kill for one right now!), the Ham & Cheese croissant, and the Pithiviers (sp?).

Kaki Gori is shave ice cart outside the pavillion to the left (as you face Japan). I prefer the Rainbow. :)

School bread is a delightful yeast doughnut filled with custard, the top dipped in a confectioner's glaze, and further dipped into coconut (half toasted, half not these days, it seems). It is heavenly.

Rice cream is in Norway too. I'm not fond of it, but that's a texture thing.

Dole Whips are both. The dole whip is at Aloha Isle in Frontierland. There are orange, vanilla, and pineapple flavors of soft serve. You may also get a float with pineapple juice. Personally, I prefer the vanilla soft serve with pineapple juice, as the pineapple flavors together just don't jive for me. They also have pineapple spears which are ripe and delicious.

But then again, I happen to love all kinds of food (as you can probably tell)!

Rice Cream is rice pudding... only lighter and not overly sweet. You can get it with strawberry topping or without.

Dole whip is pineapple ice cream.... dole whip float is pineapple ice cream (I believe you can also get it swirled with vanilla) with pineapple juice over it... heavenly!!!!

My favorite snack is hummus and toasted pita bread. Hummus is a dip made from chick peas and is usually flavored with lemon, garlic, or peppers. It's very good for you and has a ton of protein in it.

AK - the Cinnamon Toffee Almonds from the kiosk near Kilomanjaro Safari.
MK - Snow cone from Ariel's Grotto.

All parks - any of the Fruit Smoothies; they cool you off and fill you up.

I think this thread has made me want a FD pin like nothing else... All we've tried is frozen bananas (which I really liked) the rice krispy Mickeys (which we also really liked) and popcorn. The sheer amount of awesome things we haven't tried is amazing! Come on FD pin!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love the candy apples. I get those usually at the Main Street Confectionery at Magic Kingdom. Mrs.Potts at Magic Kingdom has some yummy ice cream treats.

Earl of Sandwich has amazing sandwiches, I like almost anything there. And France's bakery in Epcot has some of the best pastries I've ever tasted. :)

Yet another vote for the Dole Whips. I personally like the vanilla icecream with the pineapple juice, but the Missus goes for the pineapple on pineapple combo.

Either way, it's great! :thumbsup2

My DH loves carrot cake too and these are SO GOOD! It's actually more like a sandwich, with 2 large, soft carrot cake cookies and then cream cheese icing squished in between them :worship:

Can you tell me where you found hummus? When I was at Epcot in May, I totally wanted some at the CS in Morroco, but it was only a side option on a plate they didn't sell it separately...
