We are trying to decide on PS for our upcoming trip. We have been several times but are looking for unique or special things that we can only find at Disney--like the peanut butter playdoh at Coral Reef, rice krispie sushi at CaGrill, white chocolate slipper dessert at 1900 Park Fare. Anything we shouldn't miss? Oh, for kids or adults. Thanks!

The pretzel bread and cheese soup at LeCellier in Canada are good.

Also, Dole Whips at Magic Kingdom.

The seafood wontons at 'Ohana are delicious, and I've never seen anything quite like them elsewhere.

Pistachio creme brulee at Jilo's in AKL. Very good, not outstanding, but I'm not a big fan of creme brulee.

Maple creme brulee at Le Cellier
Zebra domes at Boma
Citrus swirls in the MK (ok, you don't need a PS for these but you can only get them in WDW!)
Cream of mushroom soup at Kona Cafe- best ever, anywhere.

There are these cinnamon hot pretzels in Fantasyland that make my mouth water just thinking about them............:hyper: Oh and I thought of another one but I don't know if you can get it elsewhere (i think maybe you can), in France, the Coconut Pyramid............:love:

At 'Ohana in the Polynesian they serve a giant snowcone in a child's sand pail. It is multi-colored and comes with a sand shovel to eat it with. My DD could not finish it even with help from three adults. BTW, you can use a spoon . It's much easier than the shovel!

My daughter gets a big kick out of the Rainbow swirled bread they use for the pb&j sandwiches at Tusker House.

I have only been able to find them at the cart outside Pinocchino's Village Haus. One of those junk food carts near where the big hat cart is...............:wave: Try one and say Hi to me, I normally circle like a buzzard, :rotfl:

QueenofCelts - THANK YOU!! I'll be on the lookout next week!

To contribute to this thread, my favorite/unique food is the KoKo Puffs at the Kona Cafe! Actually, ANY dessert at the Kona Cafe is awesome, but the KoKo Puffs are my personal favorite :)

Not a unique food, but the BEST I've ever had...

The last time I was at MK, there was a baked potato cart near the Hall Of Presidents (I'm pretty sure). The outside was salted & buttered & there was a huge selection of toppings (sour cream, butter, bacon, etc. etc. etc.)

My hubby & I lucked out b/c it just so happened that BOTH of the kids fell asleep in their strollers about 5 minutes before we found the potato cart, so we were able to sit & eat (and savor) our potatos without any little mooches!! ha ha

Rainbow swirled bread at the Crystal Palace.

Also edible 18ct gold leaf at Victoria & Alberts. It was sitting on top of a chocolate pyramid.

Great thread! I can't think of anything much to add, except to say that I would definitely make a special visit to Le Cellier for the pretzel bread - wish I could find it somewhere else, because the rest of the meal was just so-so. And I want some peanut butter Play-doh! :p

Wow, some great ideas! We have tried and loved some of these but many are new--thanks!

The cardamom flavored chocolates at Jiko (and I'm not even a choclate fiend). Grapefruit cake at MGM Brown Derrby. The crisp bread and assorted dips at Spoodles. Kungaloosh at Adventurer's club (hic!). P.S. The last time my kids ordered the PB at Tuskers it was just those yucky Stuoffer pb frozen white bread things, not the rainbow bread.

Debbie, they had the pretzel bread at the Biergarten when we were there last. Not sure if you would enjoy the food any better but it is a buffet and cheaper than Le Cellier IMHO.

Of course the obvious is Mickey Bars!! But aside from that I remember the first time I had Cobb salad at the Brown Derby it was awesome (they in fact invented it so its always nice to try it at the originator) My Dh & I enjoyed it sooo much he made it for our Christmas Eve dinner . I also love the PB&J shake at Prime Time. And all the soups and deserts at Boma. AHHH now I'm hungry.

Thanks, Linda :) . Biergarten is one we haven't tried, so maybe it's time to give it a go!

Hi Debbie

I hope you enjoy the suggestion. You sit at tables with other people, which some people hate, but we have had pretty good luck in that area. Last time we had a quiet couple but we got them loosened up before we got done eating. LOL The entertainment is fun also. Sit down front and your kids will be able to interact better.

Disney snow cones rock, but are very hard to find for some reason. We have the best luck at MGM....

The Kitchen Sink at Beaches and Cream....

Mickey Mouse pancakes - who doesn't love those?

Mom's picnic punch (Prime Time 50's Cafe) not for kiddies (alcoholic drink w/ light up ice cubes!!!) there is a non-alcoholic version for kids too w/ sprite.

Apple Pie (Counter Service in America at Epcot) Best ever!!!! Better than Grandma's it so good.

Try the beach bomb at Ohana. :) It is a treat. :) My dad ordered it and we all laughed hysterically. A 58 year old man ordering a giant sized snocone in a sand pail struck us funny at the time. It was actually really good!!! We asked for several bowls and spoons. Dad 'shoveled' us all out a serving. :)

Fresh pineapple with caramel sauce at Ohana. I must admit that the caramel sauce seems to be getting a lot thinner lately though :( It used to leave a nice thick coating on the pineapple.......now it just drips off.

Many, many years ago at Narcoosee's, I had alligator spread to smear on the crackers in the bread basket they brought out.

I really enjoyed it, but I don't know if they still serve it.

We love the cheese/pate board at Chefs de France. Cheeses, Sausages, Pate and greens with gherkins, etc. I make every bite different....wash it down with a cold white or a kir royale and I'm in heaven.
