  1. This Disney food is delicious: 5 holiday treats only available in December

    Florida

    One thing Walt Disney World has mastered in recent years is driving the public into a frenzy for over the top food. It's often offered for a limited time or, like the creamy Dole Whip, at a limited number of food stands.

    Sandy Claws Orange-Vanilla Cake Push-Pop is one of the holiday treats that are only going to be available through the end of December, and this one will only be in the Magic Kingdom
