1. Muddying the pool
Karaoke with your favorite Disney princess can be as simple as bringing out your favorite snacks. During a performance, grab a googly-eyed Mudd Bender, an oversized ice cream cone shaped like the main character from “Frozen,” and sing the catchy song “Let It Go.” There’s even a learning program to help you keep track of who’s singing, and remember to keep cool and stay hydrated. This drink appears in “Beauty and the Beast” at the Magic Kingdom and in the Haunted Mansion ride at Epcot. These ice cream treats are available at Mickey’s Frozen Ever After.

2. Hot Ices
Remember when you could only get crazy popsicles at the only place in town that did not stay open all night? And sure, they were sweet and creative — but they weren’t good. Thankfully, Disney is changing that. On May 28, the beloved Coco ice cream debuted at Downtown Disney on the “Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead) festivities. What does Coco (the Mexican holiday) taste like? A banana dusted with cinnamon, topped with vanilla ice cream and decorated with a drizzle of confectioners’ sugar.
3. Chocolate Dipped Dumbo
Hey Disney fans: Drop everything and go to Downtown Disney to celebrate their favorite fairytale characters with the “Dumbo” balloon. Try dashing through the jungle and finding the Dumbo roller coaster on top of the Magic Kingdom Great Movie Ride at the same time.
4. Merry Xmas Elf
When your kids go trick-or-treating, stick them with a large ornament and rename it “Dinobots,” after the flying robots from “Frozen.” Show your support for the adventures the “Merry Xmas Elf” travel to in the book series. The stories are fun and whimsical, and you’ll look forward to your child reading them to you each year.
5. Mr. Incredible
It’s not just Darth Vader getting toys, dolls and souvenirs made out of his famous armor. Fans can get their hands on a new collectible tie to “The Incredibles” film at Disney Store. The Homeward Bound Alliance, the Disney fans community, will help you with your search for the new limited-edition tie, titled “Mr. Incredible.”
6. Sparkling Martinis
I was unable to find an Oreo Jr. sweetty at the Sample Station, so I ordered a classic classic cocktail, a combo of a margarita and ice cream. My 13-year-old daughter happily dug through my plastic cup for the blue-and-white cup, which she couldn’t get enough of. Everyone who drinks these can’t stop laughing about how fresh-looking they are, and I have to admit, I thought I had overspent when I purchased this ticket. But if you pick up a bag of these from the Frozen Ever After menu, you’ll be pleasantly surprised how many people will devour them every night of the week.
7. $50 Snickers
Disney fans know that if you visit Disney World, the snack stop is different every day, but not so much when it comes to Snickers. The cocoa-and-cream confection is available in limited quantities at stores along Main Street, U.S.A. According to Goop, Snickers prides itself on having a unique look each time you visit, so if you put in a bit of time and drive to Ochoco Springs, you will be given a personalized Snickers bar. I’m pretty sure I could eat more than one of these, if I had a calorie deficit — but perhaps I’m being too modest. This is the appropriate time of year to celebrate the holiday season.
8. Haunted Mansion Chicken Fingers
I’m still fuzzy on how the popular sundae in this Haunted Mansion ride is supposed to taste, but I sure am glad I went for the photo opportunity when the attraction first opened in 1982. You know what they say about life imitating art: Spooky! The activity center is decorated with ghoulish candies, and the back of the kiosk features pumpkins carved out of wax. I love Mickey Mouse and the Wishing Well, but I’ll gladly try any of the other tasty treats, the best of which are the chicken fingers, pizza and nachos. Get
