      What kind of fritters? And softballs aren't that big if you're talking apple fritters....that would be on the small side.

      Where would I find these fritters?

          No fruit, they were just plain sugared fritters. When they were made well they were great. However, sometimes the fat they were fried in was not hot enough and they were really greasy and nasty. But, when they were right, yes, they were better than the ones now.

            In New Orleans Square - over in the little window at the French Market and then in the little window beneath Disney Gallery by Pirates of the Caribbean.

            They are still tasty, but they used to be way bigger and just one instead of three.

              My mom used to make corn fritters. They were yummy.

                  Yeah, my friend Becky and I would go and she'd tear hers apart and say the insides looked like chicken skin - but that didn't keep her from eating it.

                        The big ones are SO good. They are quite addicting. I love them. Sometimes my mom makes them at home for me.

                              Lore said it all.
                              I was told, that the chief cook owned the large scoop to make the large fritters; and when he left, he took it with him. Sounds like BS to me...there was only ONE scoop? How was it his personal property? A firm as large as Disney can't find large scoops? I'm not buying it.
                              I miss the old 'cannonball' fritters...and the original mint julips.

                                Yes! Back in the 80s, my friend and I couldn't properly start our Day without first getting one of those JUMBO fritters, and enjoying them in the Court of Angels before blasting off with all that sugary goodness for the next 17 hours!

                                  Ok... I tried these fritters last week for the very first time and I'm a fan of any fried dough! haha BUT I almost threw up when I bit into this one!! Worst thing I have ever put in my mouth at DL and that includes my fingers after rubbing them all over the hand railings or the hand grip on GRR (at DCA)!! :yuck:

                                  Yes, they were fried nicely and it made it look apealing, but they were the worst tasting, eggy smelling thing ever! They served it with a little cup of "fruit dipping sauce" which I couldn't figure out what it was made of. It looked like a cup of gel like butter.

                                  I DON'T RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!!! I would be open to trying the "old" ones though!
                                  I'm addicted and I don't care!!! :yea:

                                    Beignets and cafe au lait are so much more appropriate to New Orleans Square.

                                        Beignets have only been on New Orleans Square for 3 months.
