    Hey Jackie! Only 55 more days to go!! Thanks for all of your advice thus far. I was wondering what your can't miss snack at DAK is? And, in addition to the Dole Pineapple Float, what other MK snack do you like the best? Have a magical day!

    Hello Melissa!

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom, a jalapeno cheese pretzel is always on my must have list.  It's just the right amount of spice where it can be shared with my family but it still has all the flavor.  I've been able to find the pretzel at several snack locations throughout the park but right now I know it is available at the Beastly Kiosk so keep an eye out for that!  I also love snacking on a box of popcorn and a frozen coke back in DinoLand USA.  It's a simple treat but my daughter has always loved it. Something that is pretty new at Animal Kingdom and I haven't tried yet but am looking forward to it are the new salads at the Gardens Kioks Market.  I happen to love fresh flavors and salads and both of the menu options look great.  The two options are a Trek Power Salad with quinoa, beets, edamame and citrus or the Farmers Salad with blueberries, goat cheese and candied pecans.  Those are both a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan as well! 

    There are so many snacks that I love at Magic Kingdom.  Of course you already know about the Dole Whip Floats - my favorite.  I also really love LeFou's Brew at Gaston's Tavern.  It's pretty much like frozen apple juice with a hint of marshmallow, topped with a passion fruit froth.  It's something that is really different, I've never had anything else like it.  Another great snack in Magic Kingdom are the homemade cookie ice cream sandwiches, these are nothing like the prepackaged version.  You can find these at the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.  What I love about these cookies are they are customizable and huge!  You start off with two chocolate chips cookies and then you can decided what ice cream you get sandwiched in the middle.  During the fall, the offer a pumpkin ice cream and that's my favorite version of this treat.  

    I hope this gives you some ideas on what to snack on during your next vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
