One of the biggest questions surrounding the dining plan is "how can I get the best value for my credits?" Most veterans know that things like character dining and Food & Wine Festival snacks can get you a big bang for your buck (or credit). But did you know that there is a hidden gem of a snack tucked away in Echo Lake at Disney's Hollywood Studios that might be the best value for your snack credit around? I give you the funnel cake from Oasis Canteen!
Look at it in all of its delicious glory! This sucker comes with strawberry topping, a big dollop of vanilla soft-serve, a drizzle of chocolate sauce and, of course, the traditional powder sugar that is required of a great funnel cake.
Now I know what you're thinking: "Who are you trying to fool? You can get ice cream topped funnel cakes all over the parks!" While that may be true, I have yet to see another funnel cake with toppings offered as a snack credit eligible item. And the value is definitely there with this dessert, friends. Out of pocket this funnel cake will run you up $8.19 before tax. You could get a quick service meal for that kind of cash!
But how does it taste? About as good as it looks! The creamy coldness of the ice cream and the strawberry sauce played perfectly with the hot, fried goodness of the funnel cake. The cake itself had just enough crunch; great to ensure that it didn't get ridiculously soggy under the toppings. We found this to be the perfect dessert to bring with to munch on while enjoying Fantasmic!
