Disneyland Dining Tips
Inside Disneyland Park
There are so many options inside the park. It may not be cheap but it is definitely the most convenient. Here is a list of some of mine and some of my client’s favorite things to eat inside the parks. (Please email me your favorites to add to my list!)
New Orleans Square:
My three favorite snacks that you can find at various stands inside the parks are:
Did you know you can get FREE coffee inside Disneyland Park? The Market House on Main Street has been giving free coffee refills since 1955. Purchase a cup of coffee (regular, decaf, vanilla or hazelnut) for $2.59 and save your receipt. There’s no need to keep the cup. Just bring back the receipt and enjoy free refills all day.
Inside California Adventure Park
I have to admit that I have less tips for California Adventure Park, even though there are several choices! And now with Buena Vista Street and Cars Land open, there are even more choices for everyone's taste. Here are a few things I have tried and liked very much! I think my next trip needs to focus on this park!
Taste Pilot's Grill at Condor Flats (next to Soarin Over California) has really good Chicken Sandwiches! Someone sitting next to us said their ribs were delicious and they even went back for another order of them because their kids had eaten all of theirs.
Cozy Cone Motel has a Chili Cone Queso that looks absolutely to die for! This is going to be something I try when I'm there next. If anyone has tried it please let me know!!
Wine Country Trattoria at the Golden Vine Winery has Italian favorites. I was impressed. I loved that we could sit outside and relax in the shade while we ate. And for wine lovers, you have several choices to pair with your meal.
Corn Dog Castle. If you like corn dogs, then you need to get one here!
COFFEE - For you coffee lovers, there is now a Starbucks inside the Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe on Buena Vista Street. There is also a wonderful coffee stand that is located on the left hand side just before you get to the World of Color show. The line takes a bit long, especially right before World of Color show, but the coffee is so yummy! (Do I say yummy a lot?)
Outside Disneyland Resort®
To save money you can leave the park and not have to go very far. There are several restaurants and fast food places within walking distance of the park. If you exit the parks and head towards the shuttle drop offs and cross the street (Harbor Blvd) you can see in either direction, several fast food and sit down restaurants within walking distance. And there are even more options up and down Harbor Blvd if you have a car.
Here are some choices for restaurants within 3 miles of Disneyland
