    Sarcasm possibly? Might be a bit off-topic, but turkeys are native to the Americas. They did not exist in Pre-Columbian Europe.

    Slightly OT but it was one of the things that amused the pants off me when I started going to renfaires way too many years ago. "Historic foods! Sausage inna bun! Bangers! Sausage in some other form! Er... turkey legs? Are you sure? Wasn't that legendarily supposed to be America's national bird at one point?"

    Back closer to topic...

    I've always wondered why Disney didn't make the effort to put the first Turkey Leg location in Frontierland. It'd be the actual closest place you'd reasonably find them in the real world, between there and NOS and potentially Main Street (the American sections of the park). Fantasyland seemed more a "people love 'em at the renfaire, they expect princesses with their turkey" decision.
    Woo! Spring is coming!

    Yeah, I think they were eating legs of lamb (muton chops) back in King Henrys day.
    Hmmm... A Leg Of Lamb cart in the Fantasy Faire area perhaps?

    Re: Turkey Legs - Love 'em or hate 'em?

    I've never tried one, and when someone has one around me, the smell makes me gag and I either hope they leave, or I leave. I also have never eaten one at home, at Thanksgiving dinner, for example.
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".

    They were alright. I agree with the poster who said they tasted like ham... it really did. i got one for me and my daughter while waiting for fantasmic... i'm not sure i would do it again. it was tasty, but so messy and greasy.

    I feel indiffernt to the turkey legs. Sometimes, they look really good. And other times, I feel repulsed watching someone tear into it with their teeth. I've never personally had one, but that's because I'm too busy getting soft pretzels. And for a fraction of the cost.

    Also, someone once told me that it's Smoked Turkey, and apparently, smoked turkey tastes quite similar to ham.

    Oh the calories. According to an article in the NY times, the supplier of said turkey legs says there is 720 calories and 36g of fat approx in each leg.

    Between all parks in North America Disney was expected to sell about 2 million of these turkey legs. Pretty good money maker.

    At the showing of Sleeping Beauty at the Opera House the other night the woman in front of us got really excited and started pointing and yelling when she saw one of the kings apparently eating a turkey leg.

    I voted 'other' since I have only eaten them at my local fair. I AM ADDICTED TO THESE THINGS!!! I eat about 3 of them each September at the Puyallup Fair in Washington. They are delicious!!
