best food at disneyland

Sure – many go to Disneyland for the rides, entertainment and characters, but we also know those who go to the Happiest Place on Earth for the food.

Even if you aren’t there mostly for the food, no one can deny that the CHURROS and DOLE WHIPS are some of the most delicious things they’ve ever eaten. And those are just two of the hundreds of menu items you can find there.

Being a foodie and going to the parks quite often, I decided to compile a list of all the restaurants found at Disneyland as well as highlight some of my favorite things there.

To help you out, I broke the list down by AREAS of Disneyland and all the places you can eat within each area. I’ve also linked to each place’s website and their menu. I’ve also added a dollar sign to let you know what the price is. 😉

I hope this helps you out while visiting Anaheim, and be sure to leave a comment and let me know which thing is your favorite thing to eat. With Disney always changing and adding, I’m sure this list will be updated often so be sure to come back before you go to Disneyland again (and also check out our Best Restaurants at Disney World post). 😉

NOTE: The parks often bring out seasonal Disneyland food, so be sure to check their social media to find out about all the latest and newest treats hitting the parks.
