But this past February I was able to visit Walt Disney World completely alone for the first time ever. And after I was done feeling guilty about it (for 5 minutes), I was able to have a total blast! I was down there to volunteer at the Princess Half Marathon and cheer on some other Ears of Experience agents, but naturally I went a few days early to conduct some 'research'. Part of my research was enjoying some snacks! Some snacks that I didn't have to share. Whoo hoo! Well, towards the end I did because my kids and hubby did join me after the half marathon. But I was happy to see them and have some help with my 'research'.
Here's the challenge that was laid out before me:
1. Turkey Leg
2. Dole Whip
3. Funnel Cake
6. Cronut (officially named a croissant donut)
7. Kaki Gori (shaved ice)
8. Mickey Pretzel
9. Premium Mickey Ice Cream Bar
10. Wild Card (your choice)
Pork shank for Turkey Leg
Citrus Swirl for Dole Whip
Kettle Corn for Popcorn
German Pretzel for Mickey Pretzel
Ice Cream Sandwich for Mickey Bar
Fresh Fruit for any snack listed (so this is an allergy friendly/ health conscious challenge, if you want it to be)
6.) Funnel Cake: Then we finished off the World Showcase and headed outside of Epcot via the International Gateway to tour the Epcot area Deluxe resorts. We got hungry along the way and naturally needed to grab a funnel cake on the Boardwalk. As we meandered through the Boardwalk Inn courtyard, they were showing a movie on the lawn so we sat down and enjoy some time off our feet. We finished off the night at Hollywood Studios to ride Rock n' Rollercoaster once more before the park closed, then it was off to bed to rest up for the half marathon. I had to be there at 2:30am, so I didn't actually sleep much, but being off my feet was good!
So I challenge you take on the Snack Gauntlet Smackdown during your next Walt Disney World trip! If you do, please tag me in your social media pics so I can follow along! @mamaknowsmickey on Instagram and Twitter. Happy snacking!
