Best Of 2022

1st: Dole Whip
Between churros, turkey legs and pizza fries, there's some stiff competition for the top theme park snack, but Dole Whip clearly deserves the win for four reasons: First, it's an Orlando original, having debuted at Magic Kingdom in 1984, before Disneyland. Second, it's cool; that frozen pineapple sorbet is perfect when it's 105 degrees in Adventureland. Third, it's vegan, if you leave out the vanilla twist, and fourth, it's free; just ask for a sample at Aloha Isle, but one taste may have you hooked.

2nd: Butterbeer ice cream

3rd: Turkey leg

Local Legends: Jason and Sue Chin

This (super)power couple must have the ability to freeze time, because somehow they split their energies among all the entities in their Good Salt Restaurant Group, including Seito Sushi, The Osprey, Reyes Mezcaleria and The Monroe. The Chins are staunch supporters of local chef talent and front-of-house rockstars, and they're steady builders of Orlando's fine dining scene.
