I honestly think they're gross looking. I won't try one because:
1. I generally don't eat meat (this would preclude a turkey leg in any case! ) and when I do, it's just poultry cold cuts
2. They look kind of unsanitary
3. It is a LOT of food
4. It costs a lot and I'd prefer to spend that money on a meal I can eat with a fork and knife.
I heard that it was secretly is ham. I can't eat that much ham.
I seen it and have no urge to eat a Turkey Leg. It disgusts me!
I doubt it. How would they even get the ham to attach to the bone? And why would they go to all that trouble?
Also, they would probably get sued for false advertising or something. Some people can't eat ham because of religious reasons (can you be allergic to ham?), so they can't advertise it as turkey when it's actually not.
The legs at Disney are greasey, messy, and full of fat (Normaly that's a good thing!) but I don't care for them. If they actually grilled the legs, they would be much better and have more flavor. That's how the ones at most county fairs are done and they taste totally differant and have way less grease. Disney smokes or steams them I think, and grilling them probably isn't cost effective or able to keep up with the demand.
I have thought about buying a couple legs as I'm ready to leave the park, picking some rosemary & time from Tomarrowland, some dried Mickey pasta from the Emporium and then throwing all in a pot to make turkey soup when I get home
I think I've had two over many years. They are okay but to me, don't even taste like turkey. They are too salty and the flavor just is kinda weird when you are expecting turkey flavor. I would never walk around eating one. Not because of how it looks. Who cares. But because it would be rather messy. We have sat down and used a knife and forks. I love turkey, and sometimes put turkey pieces like the legs, thighs, parts of the breast, in the crockpot with herbs. Yummm! so tender and turkey tasting. lol

I love turkey legs! They are one of my must-have meals every trip. I'm pretty sure there's a fair amount of sugar in there. You have to find the cart with the driest legs, those are the best. They are perfect for three people to pick at. Now I want a turkey leg...
I had one yesterday and it was weird. It tasted like a cooked ham. It has no resemblance of the typical turkey taste of say your Thanksgiving turkey. It was all right. Not too bad with bbq sauce. The ducks seem to like them though as the surrounded you like hyenas while you're eating.
I work renfaires (where Disney got the idea as far as I can tell - the turkey being a Fine and Historically Accurate Bird in England, No Really, No, Why Are You Laughing). I'll happily eat a turkey leg at Thanksgiving, but it's... going tourist...? to me I guess? It's always represented one of the more expensive and least fulfilling food options sold for novelty value more than meal value. I haven't tried Disney's, but I doubt it'd change my mind.
