There are million reasons why you go to Disneyland, it really is the happiest place on earth. Or maybe I’m just a child trapped in a woman’s body, I don’t know. I swear I am just happier there. I don’t think its the same for everyone though, my dad hates Disneyland. Like swore he’ll never go back the last time my mom dragged him there for two days spending the night at Disneyland resort with the family. I don’t think he’s been back since, and this was probably fifteen years ago lol. Every time we had family visitors from Israel, of course they wanted to go to Disneyland, and my dad, trying to be the good host and a good sport that he was, would suck it up one last time (he hoped), always describing waiting in hour long lines to go on a less than 2-minute ride was “torture”.
Well, I can’t say the same for myself. I love bringing people there from out of town- I get to relive my childhood all over again. I love it so much I went twice in a week recently. And the most exciting part to me…the food. There are so many options between Downtown Disney and Disneyland Park to eat and you bet I went on a food tour and tried A LOT lol. There are a lot of mediocre things there, but some amazing things if you know whats up.
What NOT to eat at Disneyland:
- Those stale ass Micky Mouse pretzels. NOT WORTH IT.
- Cotton Candyis literally whatever to me. Not worth the sugar intake, but cute for a pic. (Hence
- Those blue and red lightsaber glittery looking churrosfor Star Wars. The regular ones taste way better for some reason, but they’re pretty.
- Don’t attempt to eat ready-made salads or packaged sandwiches. I get you want to be healthy, but you’re at Disneyland. Just eat the churro.
What To Eat at Disneyland:
- Corn Dogs at the Little Red Wagon. Located on the side of main street, this Corn Dog truck is unreal. The batter is perfectly fried- crunchy/crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Anything dipped in fried corn batter at Disneyland is heaven, but the Little Red Wagon for corn dogs is where it’s at.
- Dole Whip- Located at the beginning of Adventure Land at the Tiki Juice Bar, you can’t miss it with the long line, everyone wants the Dole Whip. It’s a creamy pineapple soft serve that is dairy and gluten free. Definitely refreshing snack on a hot day.
- Plaza Inn Fried Chicken and Biscuits- To the right of Main street, in front of Tinkerbell’s castle is one of the cutest restaurants at Disneyland. The Plaza Inn has all pink and white umbrellas (super photogenic), and the fried chicken and biscuits are really good. You can get a cute pic AND have a good meal, how about that.
- Funnel Cake at Stage Door Cafe- Loaded funnel cakes with fun seasonal flavors. I usually always get fried chicken fingers and funnel cake at the Stage Door Cafe. The Hungry Bear restaurant also has good funnel cakes with different flavors as well. Funnel Cake is kind of a must at a theme park.
- Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor- Located on Main Street, Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor is hosted by Dreyer’s Ice Cream. I don’t know why but this place is unreal. Fresh basked waffle cones, and for some reason the ice cream just tastes like the best ice cream ever, even though it’s just Dreyers Ice Cream. I went there both times I went to Disneyland recently, each time being exceptionally good. I keep it simple and get the Cookie Dough Ice Cream on a fresh waffle cone. The Mint Chip is bomb too.
- Big Dill Pickles in a plastic bag are always fun.
- The gigantic Turkey Legs.Makes you look like a wild beast when eating it and I love it.
- Chimichangas. A bomb messy, filling snack.
- Mickey Mouse Beignets at Cafe Orleans. Mickey shaped beignets with powdered sugar and dipping sauces. Also a cute place to sit outside and eat.
I apologize I don’t have any food pics to go along with my lists. I only took a few crappy ones on my iPhone. Instead, check out some completely unrelated pics from my recent Disneyland adventures 🙂
