    If you were to wander around each park (on different days) list what snacks you would eat along the way if you couldn't sit down to eat at any table or counter service restaurant. For example:

    Magic Kingdom
    1. Start with a cream cheese pretzel in tomorrowland
    2. Get a funnel cake from Sleepy Hollow
    3. Turkey leg from frontierland
    4. Etc.

    You can say it however you want, I just want to hear what some ideal snacking places are throughout Disneyland and California Adventure. And be as specific as you'd like, I've never been so the more details the easier it will be for me to find it!

    So, if it were me at DL I would stop at Bengal BBQ for some skewers, some beignets from the Mint Julep bar in New Orleans Square, Turkey Leg from several places around the park.

    At CA, a sundae at Ghirardelli, frozen lemonade over at Paradise Pier (come to think of it we haven't eaten a lot of places at CA)

    I purposely left out Starbucks locations but I like them for a coffee or an iced tea while walking around too.

    I'm afraid I wouldn't be "snacking around." You'd find my butt permanently planted in Adventureland, eating as many Dole Whips as humanly possible.

    Add in a corn dog from the red wagon(or swap it out for the turkey leg) and a Boysen Apple freeze from Maurice's in Fantasy Faire, and I'd be so full...but so happy...but so full

    Hey! It's ok, if ones butt gets bigger, for as long as the rest of one does too. That way the body will be in proportion.!

    Dole Whip

    Bacon wrapped asparagus from Benagal BBQ

    So refreshing to see that so many of my fellow Dissers (sp?) aren't afraid to enjoy a little junk food.

    While I love the suggestions above, I must say that two of my favorite snacks are purchased out in Downtown Disney. I take the Monorail over and first walk to the Jazz Kitchen Express to get my beignets. I have had the ones in NOS, but the ones here are just better in my opinion. Also, before getting back on the Monorail, I stop off and get a bag of Caramel flavored Kettle Corn. :love:

    ..tail inPooh Corner, would love to have this with a big glass of cold milk !

    A corn dog but as a meal not a snack.

    Oh huh I cannot believe I almost forgot....a big loaf of sourdough from the Pacific Wharf; Mickey or Mater to rip up and share.

    A dole whip in DL or an Orange Float at the Ice Cream place on the Boarwalk just past Ariel's before you walk down to Screamin'.

    A Frozen Lemonade around the Rivers of America if it is super Hot outside. Had these in October 2012 when the temperatures were above 40 degrees Celsius ( 100 deg Farh.), we took a solid half hour and sat across from the exit to BTMRR in a nice shady spot and savoured the slow enjoyment of Frozen Lemonade

    Honestly though too much snacking and I find we ware only hungry enough for lunch or supper not both.
    I did want to get some cut mango with chili at the market stand outside of the Jungle Cruise...but alas we were not hungry when we walked by last time.

    As you get off of the Monorail and exit the station, turn left and take the bridge towards the parks. There is a Kettle Corn cart on the bridge, (the last time I was there, it was on the right side of the bridge).

    They also have a regular Kettle Corn cart outside of World of Disney.
