  1. Well, do I get to be THE FIRST to leave a comment and answer Shelly’s question??? Yeah me!!!

    I’m gonna have to say MICKEY BARS! I HAVE TO HAVE ONE (or possibly more than one) each and every trip!!!

    I love them!

    …and really, Rick?! Casey’s?! Does that COUNT? 🙂

    Love y’all! Great little video this week!!!

    Nice! I have never had a Dole Whip before. Good to know there are options besides pineapple.


  3. I am with Rick on the Casey Hot dog is a must Do at the Magic Kingdom, and I would say a Mickey Bar is my favorite treat, the chocolate on the ice cream is awesome.


  4. Sara L says:

    I have two. Pineapple spear and Fudge. Also the best thing I can use my snack credits.

    Great video Rick and Shelly! My wife and I both really enjoy Pineapple Dole Whip Floats and we try and get one every trip. Did you know that Disney’s Polynesian Resort also serves Pineapple Dole Whip soft serve ice cream in Captain Cook’s? While it’s not quite as good as in the parks, it’s still a tasty cold treat on hot Florida days. My “must have” treat at Disney World is probably the Strawberry Oolong Tea Slushies sold in the World of Tea Kiosk right outside the China Pavllion at Epcots World Showcase. It’s like we can’t walk past that place without buying at least one every trip. We have been known on occasion to have 3 or 4 of these every time we are on vacation. Proabably not healthy but Boy are they Good!


  6. Lynne says:

    What a fun time! Looks delicious and I so wish I had one RIGHT NOW because it will be 100 degrees here by 3:00pm.

    Love that Andrew FINALLY had his first DW too!

    Rick – I completely agree about Casey’s – Not usually a hot dog fan, but they taste better there than anywhere!

    I have too many favorites: churros, funnel cakes, popcorn, ice cream sundaes….

    Thanks again for the great video


  7. Hey everyone. Boy it was a blast shooting this video. Mostly because it was the day I got to try my first very own Pineapple Dole Whip Float. Words can’t describe how good that first bite was but read my blog post over at http://rickstravelblog.com for all the words I could muster up. Thanks

    Hi Rick and welcome Shelly,
    I was going to try a Dole Whip in Dec. because I never had one before but
    this past Dec it was just too cold so maybe on my next trip.
    My favorite treat is over at the tea shop at UK at Epcot and that would be Crunchie bars. They melt in your mouth.


  9. Joanne S. says:

    Those Dole Whips look terrific. I have never had one either. Definately on the list of must do’s for the September trip. We have two treats that are a must. First is the Mickey’s Ice Cream Sandwich and second is the Wetzel’s Pretzels over at Downtown Disney. At first it was just the stand by the Disney Store and they were great. Now there is the store front by the Characters in Flight which has pretzel wrapped hot dogs among other tasty delights. Everytime we try to ride the balloon but can’t because of weather or whatever we console ourselves with a conveniently located Wetzel.
    Thanks for the great video and all the ideas you give us.


  10. Those look so great! My treat is usually a rice krispie treat, with a regular Dole Whip (not float) coming in at a close second.


  11. Michelle says:

    Love love love Dole Whip Float! John D introduced those to Dave & I & we love them! I don’t always get one but it’s on my must have list along with School Bread from Norway in EPCOT. If you haven’t had one, I highly recommend it! Thanks for a great vid!

  12. Chris R. says:

    Dole Whip float is a must have. I also love to get popcorn at the cart located near the west entrance to MK.


  13. Penny D Serrato says:

    I have never had a Dole Whip either and I absolutely must get a Mickey shaped rice crispy treat. 2 trips to WDW and we just haven’t experienced the Dole Whip, guess that’s why you have to keep going back. Thanks for sharing, looked delicious.



  14. Nicklas Yeager says:

    Hey Rick
    I am craving a Dol Whip right now. Great video. I had a Dole Whip at the Polynesian Resort in 2009. It was yummy. Now I can’t leave Disney without having one. See you next week.


  15. Peggy Hickey says:

    I’m drooling over that Dole Whip!
    I don’t have to have any treat in particular, but the Dole Whip does hit the spot when it’s hot outside. I like to try new things each trip. There’s so many options why stick with just one.


  16. Vanessa Schomberg says:

    Hi Rick,

    I have a few favorite treats, but number one for ever and ever is the Dole Whip Float 🙂 There is nothing better. I love the sweet, refreshing taste. The Dole Whip Float is really both. Nicely sweet and refreshing.

    Other favorites are: The Mickey Bar, Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream and the Mickey shaped waffle with strawberries and whipped cream.

    Great show again. Please go on with that and take care…

    See ya next week.


  17. Robert Nordmark says:

    Hey Rick and Shelly,

    Thanks for introducing me to the Dole Whip. I will have to have one the next time I am at WDW. I can imagine what a refreshing treat a Dole Whip would be on a hot day. As for my favorite treat at WDW–It seems that whenever I am at Epcot I am drawn to the bakeries/delicatessens at the Norwegian and French Pavillions. Anything refreshingly fruity or decadently chocolate with a glass of milk. I have to go to each of those bakeries at least once during my visit.

    See you next week.

  19. Kevin Nelson says:

    Love the Dole Whip Float! Thanks y’all for sharing, it’s 100 degrees in MS and I’m about to do yard work! I wish there would be a Dole Whip Float waiting on me when I finish! My favorite treat is the popcorn in any park, at any time, YUM! Y’all keep those smiles on, my smile is not so large as I walk out of my house into the inferno!


  20. Sue M. says:

    Yummy! Dole Whips are my #1 fav treat either in MK or Poly. Maybe next time I’ll try the float 🙂
    I also love the candied almonds in the cart nearby.
    DHS- Cupcakes from Starring Rolls
    Epcot- Grand Marnier Slush- does that count as a treat? lol.
    AK- Candied Pecans, & Yak Attack!

    I also enjoy Mickey Bars anywhere!


  21. Paul says:

    I just tried my first DW float last trip. Here’s how I commemorated it.



  22. DKG says:

    My favorite treat is the Strawberry bar. It is outstanding. Of course, I have never had a Dole Whip, so I plan on getting one when we visit WDW later this month. We’ll see if my favorite changes afte that!


  23. Linda Rupertus says:

    My favorite treat is the root beer float. I was so disappointed when they no longer served them at Pecos Bill’s. I think those were the best! BUT, I have found some others almost as delicious.My husband can’t leave without his popcoen fix!


  24. Linda Rupertus says:

    Forgot!!! The amazing sweet pretzels at the Norway pavillion.


  25. Barbara says:
