Disclosure and Credit
I have to begin by saying that this idea is not mine at all. I was introduced to a website called Disney Food Blog ( http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/)
run by AJ Wolfe. As a "foodie," or in medical terms a food addict, I love to eat. Disney Food Blog (DFB) therefore had me mesmerized by the amazing eats available at Disney parks. Since I had an upcoming trip to Disney planned for the Flower & Garden Festival, which this year included food kiosks, I decided to go all out and try every item from DFB that I felt was a "must try" item. The choices included everything she blogged about this year plus anything I found through the links within those blogs. In other words, my possible choices probably covered most everything mentioned in that website.
By the start of the trip my list of things I was planning on trying had grown to over 90 individual items, plus a few meals throughout the day. Most of them are small snacks such as the marble cupcake and Butterfinger cupcake shown here (from http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2009/10/05/you-wont-believe-this-snack-butterfinger-muffin/).
I had 4 days on the trip, with 3 in the parks and 1 outside the parks where I could still eat at Downtown Disney and the resorts. I had given myself a tentative budget of $200 per day, or $800 for the trip in food expenses.
The true point of these reviews are for me to keep a personal log of food I have tried in the past and what my opinions were after eating them. This can help me plan for other trips in the future and make sure to not repeat items from the past unless I feel they are absolute "eat again" items. If anyone else enjoys reading this then I'll consider it a bonus. If it helps AJ to fill in some voids on her site, also a bonus. Overall though, this is for me. It's something to help remember the great food trips I have taken.
