  • What are your must not miss foods/restaurants in the park?

    I am taking a trip down to Disneyland Park mid November. I will only be visiting for one day and only Disneyland Park. I have not visited the park since 2015 and I know a lot has changed. What specific foods or restaurants are a must while in the park for you or your family? Are there seasonal items that I must try while I am there? Any suggestions or recent trip reports to the park are much appreciated and thank you all of your help in advance.

      Blue Bayou is always good. Expensive but good.

      Of course, churros are an absolute must-have........

              I had a great salad, steak, Vanilla Bean Crème Brûlée, and mint julep at Blue Bayou. Enjoyed every bite.

              At Cafe Orleans a while back, I had a steak and pomme frites, sitting on the patio in the shade, watching the world go by. A great meal.

              Recently, I had the Monte Cristo there, staring at a wall. Different experience. People LOVE the Monte Cristo. I thought is was ok. Lots of batter. It's worth waiting for a table outside.
              Both of these take a while if you only have one day.

              Quicker is Rancho Del Zocalo. Good, quick food. Nice atmosphere.

              Red Rose Taverne has a pretty good Beast Forbidden Burger and flatbreads. Not a must, but ok if you're over there.

              One have to get a dole whip at the Tropical Hideaway, and take a break watching the jungle cruise boats come in.

                  For me, atmosphere is the most important aspect of a Disneyland restaurant, as long as the food is alright. With that in mind, my top favorites include:

                  Blue Bayou
                  Cafe Orleans
                  French Market Cafe
                  Plaza Inn
                  Rancho del Zocalo
                  Docking Bay Seven

                  No matter where you go, there you are.

                    It depends on what you want to enjoy. Atmosphere, food quality, and value (food you get for the price) are all important things to consider.

                    If you want the theme park atmosphere, I would recommend the Blue Bayou. It really is unparalleled, especially if you dine during lunchtime when the sun is up.

                    If you crave quality, Cafe Orleans is a must, followed closely by Carnation Cafe and River Belle Terrace.

                    If value is most important, Rancho Del Zocalo is my favorite, but many other quick services places will fill this need depending on the type of food you enjoy, so be sure to check the menu. Harbor Galley has decent seafood, Galactic Grill and Hungry Bear have burgers, and you can get "American" fare at various locations throughout the park.

                        Where to start. I booked a trip for june 2020 and it will be my first trip in 5 years. had bad knees and walking all day, every day got to be too much. now going with 2 new knees and no pain so look out WDW. first day is always MK, so it is Mickey waffles at the resort before I leave. after 34 trips to Disney nothing changed. During the day at MK a dole whip, mickey ice cream bar, and a mickey pretzel are a must on the first day. Since my nieces became to old for Disney (?) their words not mine, I have been going alone so I have been sticking to mostly counter meals but did love BE OUR GUEST (HEARD THAT CHANGED) LE CELLIER (THAT CHANGED TOO) Studios I loved 50s prime time and Epcot Teppan Edo (hibachi)

                                For me breakfast at Carnation Cafe is a must every time, Snacks always include a mickey pretzel and churro.
                                BGood! It's not just my motto its my name!

                                  Bengal BBQ skewers are the first things that come to mind, followed closely by a mint julip & beignet from the Mint Julip Bar and a Dole Whip from over by the Tiki Room.

                                  Having said that, I'm also a fan of eating at Rancho del Zocalo and the Hungry Bear Restaurant. Not so much for the food (which is good), but for the atmosphere.

                                    If your not a avid visitor than I would say a plain Churro ( don't muck it up ) and a Plain Dole Whip.

                                    Also for something Savory the Monte Cristo at Blue Bayou is the most Disney meal experience I can think of. ( Amazing atmosphere, super rich, overpriced it's hard to take it all in on one trip lol! )

                                        The Ronto Wrap replaced the Little Red Wagon Corn Dog as my favorite Disney snack, but both are absolute musts. A coke from the refreshment corner is also super satisfying. The lemon soft serve with blue icee from Pixar Pier is my new favorite frozen treat at the park.
