When I visit the Disneyland Resort I don’t always want to stop for a sit down meal. (To be honest, I could almost live on just the snacks at Disneyland.) I like to have snacks that I can eat while I’m exploring the park or waiting in line for a ride. These are my top 8 snacks that you can grab and go.
Popcorn has been a staple at Disneyland since opening day. It’s salty and buttery and an easy snack to carry with you as you stroll through the parks. Not only is it delicious, but you can also purchase special popcorn buckets.
Everything tastes better when it’s Mickey shaped and the soft pretzel is no exception! My favorite way to eat a Mickey Pretzel is to dip it in warm cheese sauce. You can find Mickey Pretzels at several food carts around the parks.
I tried these for the first time in August and I can’t believe I waited that long! Deep fried and covered in powdered sugar, these beignets are scrumptious! And they come with raspberry and vanilla dipping sauces if you get them at Café Orleans (table service restaurant). Do not wait to try these! The best place to get beignets is at the Mint Julep Bar.
This snack made my list because almost everyone I know loves it. I’m the exception to the rule (I just don’t like pineapple). Dole Whips are a great blend of sweet and refreshing pineapple soft serve. Here’s a tip for getting one sooner than the average guest: the line is shorter on the Tiki Room side of the counter.
The churro is another staple of Disneyland. You can find them at carts throughout the park but the churro bites can only be found at the Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land. These deep fried bite-size bits of goodness are covered in cinnamon and sugar and even come with a chocolate dipping sauce.
Hand-Scooped Ice Cream
Cookie dough ice cream in a waffle cone-yum! There’s no better snack on a hot day than sweet, delicious, hand-scooped ice cream. You can get this cool snack at the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor in Disneyland as well as Clarabelle’s in California Adventure.
So many flavors to choose from! Peanut butter, chocolate, rocky road and maple walnut are just a few of the regular flavors. Seasonal options are also available at different times throughout the year. Creamy and smooth, this decadent snack comes in big, ready-to-eat squares. You can find fudge in multiple candy shops throughout the resort.
This snack is sometimes more filling than other snacks. They aren’t your regular everyday corn dogs. These are hand-dipped in a sweet cornbread batter and fried to a crispy, dark golden brown. You can find them at Corn Dog Castle or the Little Red Wagon.
