What Do You Let the Kids Eat at Disney that They Aren't Allowed to have at Home?

To all of us bad parents out there: what food items do you let your kids have ONLY at Disney?

DH and I let our DS have Dunkin' Donuts from the Hess gas station for breakfast.

Popcorn and Mickey Bars for lunch. Just dessert for dinner one night. We also let them take as many snacks in the park as they can stuff in their pockets.

I let my kids (2 and 4) try the sodas in Club Cool. They are not allowed to have soda normally (not even a sip!)

I forgot about Club Cool. We let DS try the Beverly in hopes to convince him that soda is bad. He liked it!

Ice cream sundaes for a mid morning snack, funnel cakes and churros way too late into the night ! Whatever they want to have to drink in their resort cups, the OMG we can have pop whenever novelty wears off by the second day, after that they stuck to hot coco in the morning.
We let them also decide on whatever they want from the menu, at home we do not usaully eat out and if we do it is the local family diner.

oh and those dang fill your tube with sugar things lol ! They know no tto even ask for them at home but this past trip they used thier own money to get them.

I'm pretty "mean" when it comes to junk food. She had cotton candy and ice cream on the trip, but it was definitely monitored. My kid is psycho on sugar though :P

We eat nothing but JUNK for breakfast in the room before parks each day: doughnuts, snack cakes, poptarts. Then we let them inhale SUGAR in the evenings to keep them awake for those EMH's!

I wanted to be the parent that said "whatever" but when I let my one DD have a Mickey ice cream bar, she literally screamed, waved her hands in the air and ran in circles for about 5 minutes straight. So that was the end of sugar carte blanche. Typical breakfast food for breakfast, and if she wanted Mac and Cheese all day every day, that was fine too. I did have to monitor the sugar, I never expected she would be that crazy on it though. LOL They rarely have it at home.

I insist on a good breakfast. I want them to have energy for a few hours without stops while we hit the popular rides early in the day. However, they often have a sugary snack in the afternoon and dessert with every dinner.

Well let's see. There's frozen pizza, cupcakes for breakfast, more than 8 oz. of soda, and ice cream before noon.

My boys can have anything that isn't just sugar (sherbet tubes or massive lollipops in particular).
I'm pretty lucky because we eat out quite a lot and they don't get caught up in the excitement of having junk, neither of them likes pop (I'm so happy) so if they want icecream for a snack that's fine, donuts for breakfast aren't a problem because I know at some point in the day they'll be asking for watermelon or veggie sticks!!
It's only one week out of an otherwise very healthy diet

Hot chocolate before bed every night. More than one sweet snack/day as long as they're also eating their fruits and veggies.

But we don't go hog wild. One of my kids is very prone to a nervous tummy when she eats too far outside of our usual comfort zone. And she knows it, so she doesn't push to change her diet much because if it happens, nobody enjoys the vacation.
