Make sure to add these Disney snacks to your list for your next trip. You can find these best Disneyland treats all year round at both Disney parks in California.
Best Disneyland Treats
It’s no secret that we love Disney around here. I had so much fun going with my family as a kid, that I want to create those same memories with my kids. Of course we love the rides, the sights, the sounds, the smells and just the pure magic of everything at the parks. But the food at Disneyland is pretty great too. We try not to go too crazy spending money on all the Disneyland treats and snacks, so we tend to buy one or two of something and then all share. Plus then I don’t feel so guilty eating my way through Disneyland. 😉
Best Disneyland Drinks
This list is short, but delicious. And since we don’t drink alcohol, these drinks are for all ages. These are by far our most favorite things to share at the parks. Especially on warm summer days.
My absolute favorite drink is this Red’s Apple Freeze from the Cozy Cone in Cars Land. It is slushy and refreshing and so good! This is the one my daughter steals from me all the time.
I mentioned that I have been going to Disneyland for years and it wasn’t until last year that I tried the Mint Julep from the Mint Julep Bar in New Orlean’s Square. It is the perfect drink for a hot day. And a Disneyland classic.
New to Disneyland is Gaston’s Famous Brew from The Red Rose Tavern in Fantasy Land. The passion fruit foam is super yummy.
Maurices Boysen Apple Freeze is similar to Red’s Apple Freeze, with some added Boysenberry syrup. Don’t drink this one too fast or you’ll get a “freeze brain” as my daughter would say.
Snacks at Disneyland
Although there are so many snacks and treats to enjoy in Disneyland, these are my must get treats and I love that they are available all year round.
The classic churro. It’s not a success trip to Disney without a churro, or five! 🙂 Luckily you don’t have to look far to enjoy these. You can find them at carts all over the parks.
The easiest sharable Disneyland treat is cotton candy. Disneyland is always changing up the flavors. Make sure to check out the fun flavors on your next trip to the parks.
Another new addition to Disneyland is the Grey Stuff, also found at the Red Rose Tavern. My daughter and I really liked this, it’s a good size for sharing too. The cookie on the bottom isn’t my favorite, but I loved the actual grey stuff.
The Matterhorn Macaroon from the Jolly Holiday Bakery on Main Street is one of the Disneyland treats that I actually buy more than one. I like to take one home to eat when I’m going through Disneyland withdrawls.
The Mickey beneigts are another Disneyland classic that took me years to try. And since you get 3 in your order, it’s definitely a shareable snack.
Over in the wharf area at California Adventure, a sundae from Ghirardelli is a delicious way to cool off on a hot day. Plus they give out free chocolates if you stop by. And they are always changing up their menu to add new sundae combinations to fit the season or a certain celebration happening at the park.
You knew the dole whip would make the list. Whether it’s a classic dole whip or a dole whip float, that long line is totally worth it!
The Mickey krispy treat is another fun treat to pick up to take home. There are always fun designs and toppings to choose from so you could try something new every trip.
Best Disneyland Eats
If you’re looking to have something a little more savory, especially after eating all those delicious sweet treats, these Disneyland eats are always a must when we are at the parts when we are feeling hungry.
The pretzel bites from the Cozy Cone Motel in Radiator Springs are my families absolute favorite snack, lunch or dinner. We love these anytime of day. Especially with the cheese sauce! And I like that we can share too.
The hand dipped corn dogs are another favorite of mine. I think they add extra magic to that breaded coating they dip them in. 🙂 These can be found at the Stage Door, The Corn Dog Cart on Main Street and at Corn Dog Castle in California Adventure.
The Monte Cristo sandwich. I know you’ve heard of it! Well you can get the classic Monte Cristo or the 3 cheese Monte Cristo. Definitely worth sharing, you can get these at the Blue Bayou or Cafe Orleans.
This is my absolute favorite meal to buy at Disneyland. I don’t care if it’s the middle of summer, I’m getting myself a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato basil soup from The Jolly Holiday Bakery at the end of Main Street. I don’t mind sharing most of these Disneyland treats, but this one is all for me!
If you love onion rings, you gotta try the ones from the Hungry Bear Restaurant. And while you’re there, try the crispy chicken sandwich too. I totally need to order another one of these plates!
One of these days I’ll snap a pic of my husbands favorite Disneyland food, a bread bowl with either clam chowder or chili. Depending on which park we are in at the time he has a craving. The soups at Disneyland are always so delicious, you can’t go wrong with either. And just like me and my grilled cheese, he doesn’t like to share his bread bowl. 🙂
