  • [Fun] Eat your way through at Day at Disneyland in any era...

    Ok here is another "list your..." topic for some fun. This time list what a realistic dream day of eating (& drinking ) would be in a perfect trip to the DL Resort from rope drop to fireworks. No judging everyone should be free to list their ideal daily intake regardless of how unhealthy or unsettling some maybe. It's a day at the park and considered by many an automatic cheat day. Let's keep it realistic though (somebody stating 150 churros who isn't Kobayashi would lead to many calling BS )

    I'll go first as an example as I am a pretty boring eater...

    Breakfast: A churro and cup of coffee from Starbucks on Main Street.

    Morning Snack: A NOS Fritter (from the 80's back when they were the size of your fist), with a large fruit punch to wash it down.

    Lunch: A Chimichanga from a vendor cart & a bottle of Sprite

    Mid: Afternoon 2 bottles/cups of water. ( Need to thin out all the carbs from the morning )

    Afternoon snack: Dole Pineapple Juice from Dole whip counter.

    Dinner: Chicken Gumbo and a Coke from Blue Bayou

    Desert: Mint chip Ice cream dipped waffle cone from Ghiradellis in DCA and a bottle of water.

    ( it's good thing I just walked 10 miles. )

    Breakfast: If I'm not eating at the hotel, then I'm gonna go with some kind of Mickey waffle (or if I can get French Toast), eggs, bacon, and water/orange juice. Possibly even some kind of breakfast burrito. I enjoy those.

    Morning Snack: I don't think I'd get a morning snack. I'd probably wait until it was lunch time. I'm not usually hungry for about 5ish hours after I eat my breakfast anyway.

    Lunch: Lunch would be a toss up between basically anything at Rancho Del Zocalo or some kind of burger and fries, maybe from Hungry Bear. Root beer is a must.

    Mid: Churro! and water. Lots of water.

    Afternoon snack: I haven't had it yet, but now that Tropical Hideaway is open I'd probably get myself a bao or two. Maybe even a skewer from Bengal. That's the perfect sized snack to tide me over until dinner time!

    Dinner: Some kind of salmon and rice or mashed potato dish or possibly even a steak. I tend to gravitate toward the fish, though.

    Desert: Mickey beignet. They're so much fun to shake in the bag, so warm and delicious.

      Breakfast: I'm dating myself but breakfast always started at the Plaza Pavilion on Main street. Pancakes or a waffle was a must.

      Lunch: It has to be a corn dog from the Red Wagon on Main Street

      Midday snack: A Dole Whip, what else

      Midday Snack 2: Beignets and coffee

      Dinner: Do they still have the Steak Sandwich at the Hungry Bear? If not then a Monte Cristo from the Blue Bayou.

      Late Snack: Popcorn from one of the many carts
      Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

          Breakfast at Jolly Holiday Bakery, with a nice, hot croissant, and a glass of orange juice.

          i don’t typically have a snack before lunch, so I’ll skip that.

          lunch is simple. Probably a burger at Hungry Bear, since the atmosphere over the river is so beautiful.

          later, I may get a snack of some ice cream on Main Street at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor. If it’s around Christmas time that snack will be a gingerbread cookie.

          Dinner for my ideal Disneyland day would be at Blue Bayou. Based on the current menu, I’d have the Bone-in rib-Eye.

          Other assorted snacks throughout the day the day would include a Dole Whip, and something from a candy shop.
          of course, every meal is with a Diet Coke, no ice.

          now, if it’s a multi-day visit, all this changes each day since I don’t like to eat at the same place twice on any Disneyland trip.

            My ideal day would go something like this:

            Eggs and sausage breakfast with a nice cup of coffee on the patio at Riverbelle Terrace, overlooking RoA; nothing too sweet because I know what's coming next...
            a snack of one of those old-time giant fritters, like Starcade mentioned, accompanied by a Mint Julep.

            Lunch would be a lobster roll at Harbor Galley; and then I'm very full, so nothing for dinner until I have...
            a nice steak and salad with their old school dressing, along with a cup of jambalaya at the Blue Bayou.

            And that's it until I grab some English toffee on the way out of the park and munch it happily as I make my exit.

              Breakfast: An iced mocha and blueberry muffin from the Coffee Shop at Disneyland Hotel


              Lunch: Bengal & Banyan skewers from Bengal BBQ, and a jalapeno cheese pretzel from Refreshment Corner... on the upper deck of the Hungry Bear (and stealing bites of my wife's funnel cake)
              Honorable Mention: Jazz Kitchen... gumbo, and shrimp and grits!!!

              After-Lunch Dessert: Mint Julep and/or Iced mocha #2, and a nice ride or two on the Disneyland Railroad

              Afternoon snack: Dole Whip

              Dinner: on the Cafe Orleans terrace... pommes frites to start, always.
              Honorable Mention: Blue Bayou, but mostly for the ambiance

              Desert: Strawberry Streetcar Sundae from Gibson Girl

                I'm going to pick from today's available options so I don't make myself miss what's gone even more..

                Breakfast: Plaza Inn (Breakfast in the Park with Minnie & Friends) - I make this choice assuming it has to be inside the park, if not, then Goofy's Kitchen over at the Disneyland Hotel. I love me some Mickey Waffles (-and all I can eat, to boot)!

                Lunch: Rancho del Zocalo - Burrito Sonora with Chicken and Crispy Chips con Limon.

                Dinner: Blue Bayou Restaurant - Fried Calamari, Roasted Chicken Maison and a Mint Juliep.

                Various Snacks: Ronto Wrap from Ronto Roasters (either variation), Green Milk and Churros.

                Dessert: Oga's Cantina - Blue Bantha and Cliff Dweller drinks.

                There are so many good choices in Disneyland, this is was hard. Honestly, I could just spend a whole day there eating just about anywhere if I had the funds or an endless stomach.

                  This is a great thread, though I want a balance of trying foods and atmospheres from a bygone time!

                  Breakfast: The breakfast burrito at Rancho del Zocalo was a favorite when they had it that held me over for a few hours.

                  Lunch: This has to be Monte Cristo sandwiches at the Blue Bayou. That is basically comfort food with unbeatable atmosphere.

                  Post-lunch dessert: Not wanting to go on any fast-moving rides on a full stomach, I'll head to the Tiki Room and have a Dole Whip.

                  Late-afternoon snack: Need to make time for the obligatory churro (no special flavors or sauces, please).

                  Dinner: A burger from the Carnation Cafe on Main Street never fails to hit the spot. I don't eat beef burgers anymore, but hey it's a cheat day.

                  Dessert: I love getting a hot chocolate from a Fantasyland cart sometime around 10pm.

                  Last snack: Before hitting the road between 12 and 1am, I always stopped by the Blue Ribbon Bakery for a chocolate chip cookie and chocolate milk.

                      While technically not in Disneyland or DCA, but very close by at the former Residence Inn, our meal started at the crowded breakfast buffet room waiting for my turn to make waffles for wife and daughter...next at Disneyland, lunch would be something from either Hungry Bear or from the restaurant formerly known as Pizza Port...dinner was always a spontaneous affair...dinner could be at the Plaza Inn, or Carnation Gardens or La Brea Bakery, or at the IHOP across the street...
                      I am old. But still love Disneyland.

                                Sorry...I just couldn't resist. It's from Lord of the Rings. The Hobbits eat first breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses, etc. etc. Sounds good to me!

                                      And here I thought you were referring to the fact that it was only his 2nd post in 10+ years as a Micechat member... haha
