Can somebody tell me the difference between a Dole Whip and a Citrus Swirl? I get a Dole Whip every trip and for some reason I have never heard of a Citrus Swirl.

Another vote for Sleepy Hollow - we tried the funnel cakes & waffles & especially loved the fresh fruit/nutella waffle. Next time we plan on trying their lunch menu for waffle sandwiches too.

My niece loved the turkey legs but the rest of us didn't care for them at all.

DTD - Ghiradelli hot fudge sundaes. All of their ice cream sundaes look great but we can't get past the basic hot fudge.... it's soooooo rich!

We do cinnamon rolls on Main St on our 1st MK day for breakfast & love them, but I don't think there's anything specific or special about them... it's more that we don't normally eat pastries for breakfast so it's a nice treat to get a fast sugar buzz on vacation.

There were little pastry/coffee carts in Epcot (over by Ellen's ride) and also in HS outside of the ToT exit/giftshop last time we were there (Dec) and they had the biggest, yummiest, softest yeast raised donuts we've ever had. 4 of us split 2 donuts one morning & they were SO good!




I need to know more about these Grey Goose Slushies!! Someone, please! LOL! (I'm guessing it's an Epcot thing? I haven't heard of them but I'm a huge GG fan so I HAVE to try it now!!)

Our family's favorites (we had 108 snack credits on our summer 2011 trip and we made good use of them! ) :

- Mickey bars (I even got dh a shirt that says "I <3 Micey bars" )

- Cinnamon and sugar pretzels (only in Epcot, by the Imagination Pavilion, and in DTD at Wetzel Pretzels)

- Churros

- Funnel cakes (every park has a stand, we know where they are! )

- Kaki gori

- School bread (Norway)

- Popcorn

Can't wait to be back

I just had a citrus swirl for the first time on my last trip and it was soooo good! I actually liked it better than a dole whip ( and I love dole whips!). The citrus swirl is the same concept except with an orange flavor, taste is similar to a creamsicle - you can get them in adventure land at the little place next to the tiki room, behind magic carpets

So no one has mentioned the pork shank at Gaston's Tavern. We don't eat a lot of sugar so I'm a little fascinated by it.

Has anyone tried it that wants to share some experience?

Love this thread! I am finally trying a Dole Whip this next trip. I've been going for years and I'm sad to say, I haven't tried one yet.

I love the funnel cakes from Sleepy Hollow!

I always have to get a Jalapeno cheese stuffed pretzel and a frozen banana!

Our family just found the candy shop in Germany on our last trip and now that will be a must in the future!!

My family loves getting a pastry in the France bakery and a funnel cake in America. I go for the savory and get a hot ham and cheese croissant!

Not in WDW, but when we went to DL/DCA for the first time last April, they had the BEST corn dogs!! I haven't seen them in WDW.

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

I wanted to try the Sleepy Hollow waffle sandwiches on our recent trip, but we never made it! - hopefully next time.

They now sell the cinnamon rolls at Gaston's. DS has one this last trip and it was quite tasty!! (I had a bite). The icing was a little maple-tasting. I thought the Main Street Bakery is closing.

Yes! I had my first Kaki Gori on my recent trip (it is at Kabuki Cafe, but it's right out on the promenade, you walk right past it). They had strawberry, cherry, melon, tangerine or rainbow; I had rainbow, which was strawberry/melon/tangerine, and it was really good!

My biggest must have snack is still the Mickey Ice Cream Bar. I would also put in a plug for the milk chocolate covered caramel with sea salt at Karamel Kuche, and the sweet pretzel with almonds at Kringla in Norway.

I was going to try the famous Carrot Cake Cookie at DHS this trip but didn't know where Writer's Stop was (and it's not on the park map!).

off topic -kinda-FYI This might entice some of you to hop on the boat- Mickey Bars are UNLIMITED and can be delivered to your cabin at any hour of the day on a disney cruise! Just sayin! 2 years agoI may have had one..or two.... at midnight...one or more days

Now I am a vegan and I am excited to hear that Dole Whips are vegan, and so is the popcorn! ...my first trip to MK next week ...ready to snack!
