11. Ice cream suited for the beach
There are two beach traditions you should always keep—building sand castles and treating yourself to some ice cream. Disney has taken both these things and combined them into a refreshing format known as the Sand Pail Sundae. Offered at both Lottawatta Lodge at Blizzard Beach and Happy Landings at Typhoon Lagoon, this frozen favorite encompasses a delightful blend of chocolate and vanilla soft-serve ice cream, pieces of cookie and waffle bits, hot fudge, caramel sauce, whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry. What’s more, it comes served to you in your very own souvenir keepsake sand pail!

12. Getting “schooled”
Epcot’s World Showcase pavilions are full of international food favorites, many of which are traditional offerings of regional cuisine you wouldn’t normally find outside that particular nation. One especially popular delight with park visitors is sweet and savory School Bread. Found exclusively at the Kringla Bakeri og Kafe in the Norway Pavilion, this treat takes the form of a decadent yeasty roll laden with coconut, custard, and icing. It is known by the name “school bread” (or “Skolebrød” in Norway) because it was originally enjoyed as lunchtime sweet that children took with them to school.
