10 Disneyland Foods That You Should Definitely Try


Disneyland is known for more than just their attractions; their food options are quite impressive as well.

As expected from one of the world’s most popular theme parks, they sell a variety of edible goods that—for the most parts—can’t be found anywhere else.

If you’re hungry for a snack, why not make a pit stop at one of their food stands? Be sure to bring your wallet though—Disneyland foods can add up fast!

Wondering which food items you should try? If so, you’re on the right page—we will be going over 10 of our favorite Disneyland foods below.

1. Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana

Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas are one of our favorite treats at Disneyland.

Their Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana makes for a great treat during the summer. Cold and refreshing, the fruit is enclosed in a yummy chocolate shell—one that is covered with a generous amount of peanuts (there is also a peanut-free version).

With every bite, you’ll get to experience the perfect balance of sweetness from the two layers. Don’t eat it too fast though, you might just get a brain freeze!

Where? Available at many ice cream carts throughout the park

Cost: $4.29 (with peanuts), $3.79 (without peanuts)

2. Churro

Churros are a must when it comes to Disneyland food.

Churros are definitely on the top of the list when it comes to Disneyland food. A classic treat, they are the perfect go-to when you’re craving something sweet.

Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, these cinnamon-coated pastries are among one of the most popular items at the park.

If you’re feeling adventurous, why not try one of their other flavors? There’s Carrot Cake Churros, S’mores Churros, Galactic Churros, Pineapple Marshmallow Churros, and more!

Where? Available at different carts across the park

Cost: $4

3. Dole Whip

Dole Whip is a popular dairy-free frozen dessert that can be found at Disneyland.

Dole Whip has become somewhat of a signature item at Disneyland. In fact, they are probably one of the most sought-after treats at the park.

Somewhere in between a sherbet and a gelato, this pineapple-flavored dessert is known for its combination of sweet and tart—something that can only be described as heavenly. Light and refreshing, it is for sure worth the hype!

Where? Tiki Juice Bar (next to the Tiki Room)

Cost: $3.69

4. Fried Chicken Dinner at Plaza Inn

The Fried Chicken Dinner is among one of our favorite Disneyland foods.

Plaza Inn is a Victorian-themed restaurant that can be found on Main Street, U.S.A. Don’t be fooled by their cafeteria-style service, their food is in fact, quite delicious.

Perhaps the most noteworthy of all, however, is their Fried Chicken Dinner.

The perfect example of traditional American food (something that they’re known for), the dish comes with three pieces of chicken (all of which are fried to perfection, mind you), a buttermilk biscuit, mashed potatoes, and a mix of veggies. It’s also pretty affordable at under $15.

Where? Plaza Inn on Main Street, U.S.A.

Cost: $14.99

5. Mickey-shaped Beignets

Mickey-shaped beignets are up there with churros for being one of the most popular Disneyland food items. Fresh from the fryer, they are crispy on the outside with just the right amount of sweetness.

To make the most out of the snack, be sure to eat it with the sauce that they give you—either vanilla or berry. During the holiday season, they even have special flavors such as candy cane and peppermint mocha!

Where? Cafe Orleans and Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square

Cost: $3.99 for three, $8.49 for six

6. Monte Cristo Sandwich

The Monte Cristo Sandwich is available at two different restaurants at New Orleans Square.

For those who want to try something that’s savory and sweet, be sure to check out the Monte Cristo Sandwich! Stuffed with turkey and ham and cheese, the whole thing is fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar.

On the side, it also comes with a plate of berry puree, which you can use for dipping. We should probably mention though, that the sandwich is quite rich (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing). If you want to save room for other things, you may want to share it with a friend!

Where? Cafe Orleans and Blue Bayou in New Orleans Square

Cost: $20

7. The Troubadour Tavern Baked Potatoes

The Troubadour Tavern’s baked potato is a worthy contender when it comes to getting the most bang for your buck. Loaded with generous amounts of toppings, it makes for the perfect snack or lunch.

There are two different versions to choose from—broccoli and cheese, and bacon and sour cream (we prefer the latter). For the best experience, you’ll probably want to find a seat or a table as they can be difficult to eat while walking!

Where? The Troubadour Tavern at Fantasyland

Cost: $7.49

8. Pork Belly Skewers

You may want to check out Bengal Barbeque if you want some meaty Disneyland food.

Looking for some meaty Disneyland food? If so, you should probably get one of Bengal Barbeque’s pork belly skewers. 

If you were to just walk down the street, the smell from the stand alone would probably be enough to pull you in—yes, it smells that good! Served on a plate with some garnish, the pork belly—which is drizzled with Hoisin sauce—practically melts in your mouth.  

Where? Bengal Barbeque at Adventureland

Cost: $5.99 for one skewer

9. N’awlins Gumbo

Disneyland’s Gumbo can be ordered by the bowl at Blue Bayou.

The N’awlins Gumbo at Blue Bayou is a must-try for those who like stews. One of their three starters, the dish comes with chicken, Tasso ham, and Andouille sausage. On top of the soup (literally), there’s also a big helping of rice, which is bound to fill you up.

For a different experience, you can also check out Royal Street Veranda near the restaurant, where you can get gumbo served in a sourdough bread bowl.

Where? Blue Bayou or Royal Street Veranda in New Orleans Square

Cost: $7 for a bowl at Blue Bayou, $11.49 at Royal Street Veranda

10. Funnel Cakes

The Hungry Bear Restaurant serves a variety of different funnel cakes.

As far as sugary Disneyland food goes, their funnel cakes are pretty darn tasty. Perfect for those with a sweet tooth, these delectable desserts come with glorious amounts of sugar, toppings, and whipped cream. Depending on when you’re at the park, you might even be able to try some of their special flavors such as cherry coca-cola, oreo, and apple pie.

Where? Hungry Bear Restaurant at Critter Country
