The TouringPlans Park team can try many foods and drinks. From fast service sites to intermediate food and snack service, we try so many different foods to help keep the information on our site up to date. Sometimes food and drink are wonderful. Other times, not so much. But what really climbed to the top? Here are our top 3 food or drink options that the park team tested this week.
Fried chicken sandwich on Walt’s main street, Restaurantosaurus
It’s hard to get excited about the burgers and sandwiches at the theme park counter service. They’re usually fine, good enough, but not exceptional. So it was a big surprise when we found that the chicken sandwich from Walters Main Street to Restaurantosaurus at Disney’s Animal Kingdom was really good. The fried chicken is well seasoned, juicy and tasty. What’s also fantastic is that it doesn’t try to be exclusive. Crispy fried chicken with pickles, lettuce and tomato on a hot gingerbread. There is also roasted garlic allioli, but it was very light and did not have an excessive taste of garlic. If you had told me it was a bit of a ranch garnish, I believe you. It’s enough to give it flavor, but not enough to turn it into a sloppy, wet mess. For this we will return.
Whole Dole 50th Anniversary at Pineapple Lanai
Is there any fruit flavor that Dole Whip can’t make? (Answer: Yes, many of them, probably.) But in this case, we’re in love with the Lime Dole Whip at Pineapple Lanai at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. This special flavor is offered as the 50th Celebration Dole Whip and comes with an adorable umbrella and a special white chocolate medallion. The complaint people seem to have about Dole Whip is that they don’t like pineapple. If you fall into this category, or even if you don’t, you’ll want to give it a try.
Chocolate “Party” pyramid
These desserts at San Angel Inn, in the Mexican pavilion of EPCOT, are a real stopper. It’s nice and tasty, and really even at $ 34 it’s a bargain because you can’t eat it alone. First, start with the Tres Leches cake, add a pyramid on top of chocolate and fill that pyramid with Mexican chocolate mousse and toffee. Then wrap it in ice cream. There will be a lot of oohs and ahs when brought to the table.
Fireworks dessert parties are back in Magic Kingdom. And while they are expensive, being able to have a guaranteed place for fireworks with a place to sit, delicious treats and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages is a great way to end a day in the parks. It’s not something “every time” for us, not even many times, but it’s a great way to celebrate your trip.
These are just some of the amazing things we ate this week. Do you have any suggestions for us next week? Let us know in the comments.
