I know people say we have to go and try funnel cakes but what else is there that we should try in Orlando whilst we're there
Hmmmm... funnel cakes? Really?
Well, I'm not sure where you are coming from, but I'll guess the UK?
The food is quite similar, but you may consider the beef/steak to be nicer?
How about a patty melt somewhere, or OOOOH! Wait!!!! TooJay's Deli in Dr. Phillips! That could be almost the quintessential Orlando deli experience. It's no where near NYC, but hey neither is Orlando.
They sell funnel cakes in Epcot not to far from the American Aventure.
Are you asking about "real food" or Disney treats? It's really quite different!
