These are the Most OVERRATED Iconic Walt Disney World Snacks — According to You!

Walt Disney World is all about one thing: SNACKS.

Okay, fine, Disney World is about a lot more than just snacks. But we can all agree that snacks are a HUGE part of the Disney World experience. From Dole Whips to Mickey Pretzels, treats are one of our favorite things about Disney World.

And while iconic, it’s possible not every well known treat is all it’s cracked up to be. We recently asked our readers on the AllEars Facebook page “which well-known Disney treat is overrated?”.  Here were the most popular answers!

These are the Most OVERRATED Iconic Disney Snacks — According to You!

Dole Whip

Specifically pineapple. We’re shocked, too. But, hey — this is a safe space! Some of our readers say it’s too sweet, others say pineapple doesn’t hold a candle to newer flavors, and other just say it’s simply not as good as other sweet treats.

Mickey Pretzel

Some of our readers said they’re cute but pretty underwhelming flavor wise. We suppose we can buy that — but also…they’re really cute.

Several people said churros just aren’t for them…and others said Disney World churros pale in comparison to Disneyland. Now THAT we can agree with.


Crazy Cupcakes

A few of you pointed out that Disney cupcakes are sometimes super Instagrammable…but also super over-the-top sugary sweet. We can agree that happens from time to time — but every now and again we get a really good one!

Turkey Leg

Without a doubt, the number one answer was TURKEY LEGS! People said they’re too salty, too greasy, too big. Turkey legs have been a “black licorice” type food for as long as we can remember, so we aren’t even a little surprised this was the most popular (unpopular) choice!

  1. I wish they would bring back the old traditional shaped pretzel the mickey pretzel tastes different maybe its because there’s too much dough too close together I don’t know but its definitely different in taste than old pretzels.

  2. I would submit that a turkey leg in one hand and a corn on the cob in the other, followed by disgustingly cloying “Dole Whip” is the ultimate, repulsive snack (made even worse if you are wearing pajamas and fuzzy slippers!).!

  3. Oh my gosh! Mickey pretzels are my fave! The rest I can agree with but Mickey pretzels are all about the salty doughyness accompanied by that plastic cheese!! Plastic cheese is the best flavour ever – the only way you could lack flavour here is if you have a cheese or plastic allergy! My dreams are made of that stuff!

  4. We are from Northern Indiana and have traveled 44 times to Disney World ( many before we knew of Dole Whip ) but if possible will go 44 more times for DOLE WHIP FLOATS! They are more than worth the wait in line. We have even bought a Dole Whip maker for WDW withdrawal at home. It’s OK at home but will not quite replace floats at the Magic Kingdom or Polynesian!
