An exhaustive list of all the best Disneyland food, restaurants and treats you can find at the park. From the famous Churros to Dole Whips, we’ll go through the full coverage with links to menus, prices, and more.

The best food in Disneyland

Sure — a lot of people go to Disneyland for the rides, entertainment, and characters, but we also know people who go to eat in the happiest place on earth.

Even if you don’t come mainly for the food, no one can deny that CHURROS and DOLE WHIPS are one of the tastiest things they’ve ever eaten. These are just two of the hundreds of menu items you can find out there.

As a foodie and frequent park visitor, I decided to compile a list of all the restaurants in Disneyland and highlight some of my favorites.

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

I hope this helps you when you visit Anaheim, be sure to leave a comment and let me know your favorite things to eat. As Disney continues to change and add, I’m sure this list will be updated frequently, so be sure to check back (and check out our post on the best restaurants at Disney World) before you go to Disneyland again. 😉

notes: The parks often bring out seasonal Disneyland food, so be sure to check out their social media for all the latest and greatest treats at the park.
