As you will know if you follow me on social media, i’m just back from a trip to Los Angeles and Disneyland in Anaheim, California. I’m a huge Disney Parks fan, so I was excited to check out the original – the one that Walt Disney himself created and spent time in. One of my favourite things about going to Disney is the food, so I wanted to share my five favourite park snacks with you. If you are feeling peckish in-between rides or parades, pick up one of these.
Dole Whip Float
First up is my favourite Disney snack – both in Disneyland and Walt Disney World – as it’s so refreshing; especially in the hot weather. It’s a plastic cup that’s half filled with cold, fresh Dole pineapple juice and topped with fresh pineapple soft-serve ice cream – a bargain at just $5.49. I love to stick a straw in and drink the juice first, before taking on the ice cream. It tastes so juicy and so tropical – literally summer snack perfection. The soft-serve comes on its own too. You get this in Adventureland, but beware of queues as the Dole Whip has achieved cult status.
Mickey Salted Pretzel
My second favourite Disney Parks snack is the Mickey Salted Pretzel. You can grab one of these at various carts around Fantasyland and Tomorrowland from just over $4. These are so doughy and moreish that they make great alternatives to a bigger lunch or dinner if you just want to get something on-the-go.
Red Velvet Cupcake
The Disney Red Velvet cupcakes are delicious. Sometimes they are decorated/themed differently, but at the moment they are Minnie Mouse and incredibly cute. For $4.99 each, you get a cupcake with a soft sponge, copious amount of frosting and carefully-created decorations that’s perfectly Instagram-able.
Marshmallow Wands ($4.99 each) not only look very aesthetically-pleasing, but they taste delicious too. These skewers of marshmallows are dipped in caramel and then coated in chocolate or other decorations to make them look like popular Disney characters. The Olaf one is my favourite as I’m a white chocolate addict. How cute are they?!
What more perfect location in the world is there to eat candy floss than Disneyland?! It’s such fun to act like a big kid and eat this sticky, sweet fluff. You’ll never manage a whole bag, but you do need to try it.
