    Beaver Tails

    Hi, i am new to micechat but i come to this site all the time to see how my favorite park is doing (Walt Disney World). Anyways (sorry about that)

    Here we go. i used to be a cast member and my wife work in the Canadian Pavilion. She said that back before 9-11 happened Canada used to sell beaver tails. Now for all of you who have never had a beaver tail before i suggest that you go to Canada right now (like right now get up off your computer chair and go) and have one they are freakin amazing especially with maple syrup.

    My question (Finally) is who here would like beaver tails to come back to the Canadian Pavilion

    I live in Ottawa and now you've made me crave one. I'm going to walk across the street to the Beavertails stand right now at Winterlude.

    um lets see how can i explain what a Beaver Tail is..... It is basically fried dough but the it is really more than that. What the awesome thing about them (in my opinion) is the different kinds of things you can put on them like real Canadian maple (my favorite) chocolate or what suits you. I am not Canadian i just live here i am sure any Canadian here can explain it better

    yeah sort of,

    You know how you might try something once and not be too sure about it, but you're willing to try again, just to make sure you like it or not? That's how I am about Beaver Tails. The one time I had one, the CM was putting Hersey's chocolate syrup on it and I questioned her about the Canadian-ness of it. She told me it was from Hersey, Manitoba! lol If it would make people happy, I say yes, bring them back!
    I want my cake back!

    Re: Beaver Tails

    the whole point of this post really is that the Canadian Pavilion is awesome (don't get me wrong) but it lacks real Canadian style. For example the scenery is amazing but the only place to eat there is the Le Cellier. now i have never ate their before so i can't comment on the food (truly it's because i can't afford it haha) but i would like the Canadian Pavilion to have a Kiosk full of Canadian food that Canada is famous for. (like beaver tails) Plus i love the idea of the (hopeful) river rafting in the Canadian Pavilion.

    Being Canadian I find there is not a lot different between American food and ours. Regionaly, Canada is famous amongst ourselves for Alberta beef, West Coast Salmon, Wines from the Niagra region, East Coast Lobster...well and MY fav is Poutine and Montreal Smoked Meat. But to say that our food if different, I don't see it. I do find it odd that Macaronni is a side dish at some resturants in WDW, but I am sure that is a park thing.

    Beaver Tails are like Elephant Ears that you can find at Carnie food booths. I think Canadian food maybe taller though....you know...stacked up high instead of spread around the plate. Now for a trully Canadian experience - Smarties Vrs MMs to very different - yet the same candy...

    Re: Beaver Tails

    According to a CM at the pavilion there were issues with the supplier. Sometimes Disney wouldn't get stuff and the old ingredients would just sit there and other conflicts happened and they both gave up. 9/11's got nothing to do with this as usual. You want them back? Complain to both sides, Disney and the supplier.

    And yes they are awesome and if you haven't had one you're not cool. Make a trip to the Toronto Zoo, Canada's Wonderland, The Ex etc, and try one.
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?
