Caramel Corn: Karamell Kuche in Epcot's Germany pavilion has the most to-die-for caramel corn. They don't offer samples all the time, but it never hurts to ask.
Birthday Dessert: Now it will be a blast if it is someone's birthday or anniversary, or engagement, or (anything just to celebrate) a meal in Walt Disney World restaurant.
Just make sure to let your server know. You may get a sweet surprise.
Club Cool: Try the Club Cool offers which a taste of Coke products from around the world.
And here's a Disney Mom bonus tip: When you will head to the counter in the back where they sell frozen Coke, ask for a free sample of that.
Free Refills: The best and amazing part is that each park has at least one counter-service restaurant with self-service facilities so you can refill your cup as many times as you like.
Water: You don't have to spend big bucks for a bottled water. Any counter-service dining location will give you a free cup of ice water, you just have to ask or it.
