If you’ve been to Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort you know all about the HUGE turkey legs sold in the parks. The turkey legs are a hit with park guests, they are easy to eat on the go and are satisfying as a meal. Disney was recently surprised to discover the popularity of the turkey legs has spread to Shanghai Disney Resort.
According to Disney CEO Bob Iger, over Shanghai Disney Resort’s one year anniversary they sold 4,500 turkey legs in one day! Iger told reporters, “If you go to Disneyland or Disney World, we sell gigantic turkey legs — they’re like the size of my arm… And when I heard we were putting them on the menu in Shanghai I thought our group was crazy. Why are we selling turkey legs in China?”
With more than than 4,000 units selling daily, Shanghai Disney had to seek a supplier in South America in addition to it’s Polish supplier. Shanghai’s version of this popular park treat is glazed in Disney’s own hoisin sauce recipe, it’s no wonder they are selling like crazy!
You can find the hoisin-glazed turkey legs at the Tortuga Treats kiosk in Shanghai Disneyland’s Treasure Cove.
