    It's a bit like an ice cream float. It's pineapple juice with soft vanilla in it. I'm one of the very few who doesn't like them. :( :eek:

    Other treats? Well, that depends upon where you are. The soft pretzels are a common treat as are the Mickey bars, and things like that. :yes:

    I'm with Tink--I don't care for Dole Whips. But I like to eat fruit plain--just as it comes off the tree. I don't like it combined with anything else. :rolleyes:

    Love Mickey bars! They really aren't anything special, except they are the shape of a hidden Mickey! They're just a vanilla ice cream bar dipped in chocolate. I rarely eat ice cream, so it's a nice treat at WDW.

    The soft pretzels are huge, so have someone handy to share with. They don't taste very good once they harden!

    Let's see? What else. Oh, churros. They are a Mexican cinnamon "stick." :yes: They don't have filled ones at WDW, but the ones they do have seem quite popular.

    Italy in the WS has gelatto (or an approximation thereof) and a little case with other treats. (Pastries, etc.).

    Morocco in the WS has the BEST little cake like treats! :yes: They have one with mandarin orange slices on top and almonds. YUMMY!

    ewwww turkey legs gross me out. Esp since I saw that exhibit in Atlanta.....


    I love Dole Whips! Of course I also love anything pineapple. I hear they are now offering a citrus swirl over there.

    Norway's bakery in the WS has a lots of lovely treats. I love the sweet almond covered pretzel, the rice cream and the veiled maiden. I swear everything in the French bakery is yummy as well.

    I am also quite partial to the caramel apples that Disney sells in several places :yes:

    Johnie, you have to try the "pastries" (for lack of a better word :unsure: ) that they have in Morocco. There are some at the little kiosk out front, but more inside the Cafe toward the back. Wicked! :yes:

    I haven't eaten in Morocco in years. For some reason, I thought they only had baklava :unsure: I will make sure to give them a go in a couple of weeks :yes:

    I'm not a massive fan of the Dole whips, I can take 'em or leave 'em...but Baleigh ADORES them...I do recall "back in the day" I would buy her a DW and at the same stand I could buy a nice thick spear of fresh, ice cold pineapple. Does anyone know if they still have those? I just remember how nice and refreshing they tasted on a hot afternoon!

    LOVE LOVE the chocolate covered strawberries at the "villain" sweet shop in Disney Hollywood Studios.

    The PB&J milkshake at the 50's Prime Time Cafe is also another "must indulge" when I visit...

    :laughhard: they do resemble each other. But I still love turkey legs...makes me wonder about that movie where the people crashed the plane in the mountains and some started to freeze....:unsure:

    I don't like dole whips either. But love the ice cream at the different stands. My parents love the elephant ears or whatever they are also called.

    Well now I'm interested in knowing what those are, because I've always known elephant ears to be plants! :D Do your parents graze?



    Hi, my name is Becca, and I love turkey legs. :surrender:

    Yes, funnel cake. That's it. Here in the midwest I believe they are also called elephant ears. Or my parents just have their own language....who knows, both are possible.

    I thought elephant ears are the really flat fried dough? funnel cakes are all twisty.

    They probably are, but my parents call them all elephant ears. :D They truly are in their own little world.
