Foods we love, foods we hate, and foods we wouldn’t wish upon our worst enemies. But, we’re not the only ones with an affinity for trying new Disney eats — which made us wonder, “What’s the weirdest thing anyone has ever eaten in Disney World?”
Luckily, we knew just who to turn to in order to find out — our readers! We headed over to our Facebook page what the weirdest thing you have eaten in Disney World, and boy, did you deliver! But before we get into the responses, we want to mention that not everyone has the same taste — and that’s okay. What’s “weird” to someone might be perfectly normal to someone else. The important thing is to respect others’ cultures and opinions! Okay, kindergarten lesson over.
Without further ado, these are some of the weirdest things you’ve ever eaten in Disney World.
Okay, we’re starting off strong already with a drink that’s seriously out-of-this-world. This cocktail is made with Cîroc Peach Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps, and Simply Orange topped with tangerine and pure cane sugar — basically a Fuzzy Navel. Sounds good, right? But this drink will make your mouth go numb — seriously!
You’ll find this at Oga’s Cantina — the local bar on the planet of Batuu in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We had a scare for a while when the Fuzzy Tauntaun was removed from the menu due to supply chain issues, but we’re happy to report that it’s back!
An Unidentified Bug
This time, our reader experienced a weird, strange food they didn’t exactly order. You see, they were enjoying their time on the Wildest Ride in the Wilderness — Big Thunder Mountain Railroad — when a bug flew into their mouth!
That’s got to be weird in a number of ways. While this may not be a treat you can intentionally eat in Disney World, we bet if you rode Big Thunder with your mouth open, you’d eventually catch something. Go ahead — test it out and let us know how it goes. (For legal reasons, this is a joke).
When in Florida, right? At one point, you could order Fried Gator Bites at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ in Disney Springs! While it’s pretty commonly found in the south, you may not get the opportunity to try it where you live. Homecomin’ gave guests that chance back in the day.
When we tried it, we didn’t find it to be too gamey and it had a light, flavorful breading. It was a bit on the salty side, but it really did taste like chicken. Keep an eye out on the Homecomin’ menu ahead of your next trip in case this one comes back.
It’s time to once again blast off to a galaxy far, far away and head to Disney’s Star Wars Hotel! Here, you’ll find the Iced Blue Felucian Shrimp Cocktail — A.K.A. blue shrimp. The dish came out smoking (from dry ice in the display stand), and the fishy smell was very strong when we had it, but it tasted like regular ol’ shrimp cocktail.
The shrimp is actually bright blue, and it’s served with Redball Jungle “Cocktail” Sauce, Pickled Mushrooms, and Ocean Weed. The blue color comes from soaking the shrimp in a butterfly pea flower tea, so it’s actually natural.
Gum from Under a Table
And finally, despite his best efforts, Walt’s attempts to keep gum out of Disney World didn’t seem to really work out, according to one of our readers. We’re really hoping this was a tongue-in-cheek response, but we feel the need to share it as a warning.
This reader’s mobile order must have been taking a really long time, because they said the weirdest thing they ever ate in Disney World was… GUM FROM UNDER A TABLE AT CASEY’S CORNER. We don’t tend to judge, but next time, may we suggest visiting one of the many other food locations instead?
Have you tried any of these eats or have you tried something even stranger for your taste buds in Disney World? No matter what, we’re always trying new foods and even some of our old favorites all around the parks and hotels. You can be sure we’ll bring you the best tips and info you need to know for your next trip, so stay tuned to AllEars for more!
