In November 2021, we reported on the unpopular comments made by Christine McCarthy, CFO of The Walt Disney Company, on her quarterly earnings call. After the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort announced they were cutting portion sizes at meals to save money, McCarthy said the change was “good for some people’s waistlines.”

Many Disney Parks fans were offended by these comments. Fans are already noticing a decline in portion sizes at Disney parks, with many reporting that the quality of the food has declined as prices have risen.
Last week, a self-proclaimed “professional glutton” shared five menu items he advised Walt Disney World Resort guests to avoid. On Saturday, another so-called “Disney foodie” shared his thoughts on 2022’s worst Walt Disney His World food. From @wrightdownmainstreet on TikTok:

Starting with Disney’s Hollywood Studios, TikToker told us to avoid Hollywood Scoop’s seasonal milkshakes. They are strangely warm, lack the proper consistency, and are very overpriced at around $10.

Next, this Disney hoodie tells you to avoid the “generic” quick-service macaroni and cheese. She sampled pasta from Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa’s Gasparilla Island Grill, and all of the quick-service mac and cheese “used to be great,” but “has gone downhill.” ‘ claimed.
Back at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, TikToker said hungry guests at Disney’s sci-fi dine-in theater shouldn’t be ordering $15 smoked wings for four. “Honestly, this is no excuse for wings,” she said. “They’re covered in too much sauce and they’re so small.
At Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, TikToker tried out ‘Glow Dog’ at a hard-ticketed Disney H2O Glow After Hours event and was not happy with the results. “The hot dog itself was… not good, topped with a blue cheese sauce. Leave that alone.”
But the last thing TikToker recommends is Citricos’ truffle mac and cheese, also at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. “It’s a mushroom overload that just doesn’t go well with gnocchi pasta,” she said. “Rarely do I not finish my order, but after a few bites, this one threw in the towel.”
