I am a food-motivated person. To be fair, who isn't? There are a few things that make me want to pack up my bags like the promise of some delicious eats, and Walt Disney World is always understanding that assignment. From counter service stations at Magic Kingdom to sit-down restaurants at Disney Springs, there are endless options for those visiting the most magical place on Earth and now, they're turning it up a notch with their exclusive anniversary offerings!

I was invited to experience Disney World's 50th Anniversary Celebration and was given an exclusive look at all the sips and bites the parks have to offer!

Every Disney World park guest has their favorite signature snack.

I'm a turkey leg gal through and through. My best friend is a Dole Whip fan, and my sister? She can't visit without snacking on as many Mickey pretzels as she can.

Disney World knows just how much their food impacts our visits and now, they're bringing out some of their most delicious and unique offerings for their 50th Anniversary Celebration.

First up is the most gorgeous pasta dish I've ever seen. The appropriately titled When Will My Life Begin pasta features egg-yolk noodles that were inspired by Rapunzel's hair in "Tangled."
