After reading about the long waits for Dole Whip, it started me thinking. We need more wonderful treats like that at Disneyland.
So now I am challenging you to suggest your favorite new treat idea. I know that we have posted some before, but I would like to hear them again. (It always makes me hungry!
Now my suggestion is along the idea of Dole Whip. I think it is popular because it is cold and refreshing on a hot day. My suggestion is a similar treat.
First, I think that peppermint ice cream is wonderful on a hot day. It is very refreshing. I think that peppermint soft serve would work. Since Dole Whip is on the west side of the park, I would put my new creation on the east, in Tomorrowland.
Now if it is in Tomorrowland, it has to look like a treat of the future. Kids love blue, so why not color the peppermint ice cream blue! I think that kids would go crazy about the color.
As to location... I believe location is part of the reason Dole Whips are popular. The stand is right near a heavy traveled walkway and inside there are benches to sit and enjoy your treat. It is very important to have places to sit near where you sell the ice cream. I would put a stand in the corridor near Buzz Lightyear. Buzz already attracts the kids, now they can enjoy a treat when they are done with the ride.
I would give it a cool name, like BUZZ BLAST and even offer chocolate sprinkles to go on top. Maybe call them astroids. So the treat would be cold, refreshing and have some crunch to it if you wanted.
I think my blue ice cream from the future would be a hit.
What are your new ideas for treats for Disneyland?
