When you’re planning a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and adding items to your Disney World bucket list, you’re probably focused on making reservations at that one hotel you haven’t experienced yet, securing the most sought-after FastPass+ selections and booking your character dining experiences—especially the ones you haven’t tried yet. But do you give any thought to the “little things” that make up a lot of the fun on a trip to Disney—those items on your Disney bucket list that can get overlooked because they are the little things? Which dessert party do you want to enjoy? Which park have you yet to be at for rope drop? And—the all-important thought—which iconic Disney World foods are you going to try on this trip? You didn’t know there were “iconic Disney World foods?” There sure are, and if you haven’t had any of them, here are 12 you should add to your Disney bucket list to try first.
About Rebekah Tyndall Burkett
Rebekah grew up in Forney, Texas and lives just outside of Dallas. She’s been a Disney superfan since childhood, experiencing the magic at Walt Disney World for the first time at the age of 11. Journeys to Neverland are at least a yearly occurrence for her, her husband and her four children (the Fab Four). When they go to the parks, they stay in Florida for three weeks at a time. Rebekah loves exploring the history of the parks, the genius behind the Magic in the person of Walt Disney, and she is intrigued by all things Disney World and Disney Imagineering. When in the parks, Rebekah and her husband Scott make the most of their time by enjoying every minute with their Fab Four, by delving deeper into Walt’s vision for the parks and into the history behind the Walt Disney World Resort, and by photographing the many different types of architecture at Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and on the World Showcase at EPCOT. When she’s not in the parks, Rebekah is excitedly setting travel dates and planning her family’s next adventure to their happy place deep within the Sunshine State. On breaks from planning her next trip, Rebekah is a writer, journalist and children’s author, penning children’s books about kids with special needs that she affectionately calls “believement-achievement” stories. Her hobbies include creative writing, paper crafting and interviewing Imagineers. She is also an advocate for Autism Awareness and for children with developmental disabilities of all kinds.
