Part of my job as a Disney Travel Consultant is of to be informed about all things Disney. Since I live fairly close to Disneyland and California Adventure, I go to the parks once a week to research all aspects of the resort, and to do Tweets for our Twitter friends. It is really fun, and I have the ambitious goal to try everything that the Disneyland Resort has to offer... including the food.
Everyone has their favorite Disney treats, for example, I LOVE Dole Whip Floats. I could eat them every week, but I have decided that I need to branch out and try new foods each visit.
I will start with with my visit on October 9th. Disneyland was very crowded this day, so I decided that I would just grab lunch from a food cart. Unbelievably, I had never had one of those huge turkey legs... and I knew that people raved about them. From the number of people I saw walking around with those Flintstone-era turkey legs, I figured they had to be good. So, I ordered one from a cart near Big Thunder Mountain with a bottle of Diet Coke and I sat down to a wonderful view of the Rivers of America.
Here is the leg:
And the view:
The turkey leg was very good. The sticky coating took me by surprise, but it was very flavorful and there was a ton of meat on the leg. Too much for one person, really. I couldn't finish it.
That is one of the issues I do run into at Disney... too much food for a single person. Since I often do my weekly visits by myself, I end up wasting food or just stuffing myself. It is nice to have a friend to split items, and then you aren't too full to eat a fun snack later :)
Later on I did find more room in my tummy for my favorite snack... Dole Whip Float! Yes, I know I said that I was branching out, but I figure that I can fit one Dole Whip Float into my rotation. It will be my last for awhile. The Tiki Juice Bar was so busy that the Dole Whip line looked like it should be for a ride. Then, when I got up to the counter I had to wait another 5 minutes because the machine had overheated! I finally got my Float and I was happy.
I love pineapple, so I love the intensely sweet juice with the more subtle pineapple flavor of the ice cream. The texture is very light and smooth and the whole thing is just very refreshing. Thumbs up!
