You HAVE To Eat This At Disneyland Resort

So excited to share my… You HAVE To Eat This At Disneyland California. Sweets, treats and so much more included in my list. Let’s get started!

You Have To Eat This at Disneyland


One of my favorites at the Resort is this Churro Ice Cream Sandwich.  You find this beauty right in Downtown Disney District, located at a churro carts across from the big Lego Store and another located by World of Disney.  You have to assemble it yourself, but that didn’t stop me from savoring every bite.  The churro rounds are warm and the ice cream is one of the best vanilla ice creams I’ve had.  Don’t miss this one!  You can get this churro sammy at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom as well at Sleepy Hollow.

The Monte Cristo is up next.  This is a warm fried sandwich with ham and cheese inside, dusted with powdered sugar.  Sounds kinda bizarre right?  Somehow it just works.  You dip it in a fruit spread that makes each bite a dream.  This is a HUGE sandwich, could easily share between 2 or 3 people.  Keep in mind it’s very rich, a few bites and I’m good.  We get ours from Cafe Orleans, however Blue Bayou has them too 🙂

The Dole Whip is an “order every single Disneyland Park visit” kind of treat.  This is the Dole Float…my personal favorite 🙂  Located at the Tiki Juice Bar in Disneyland Park’s Adventureland.  There’s a second line as you walk through the Enchanted Tiki Room entrance, it’s typically a much less wait.  Be sure to check it out!

The beloved Turkey Leg!!!  Maybe a little awkward walking around the park with a giant drumstick, however grab a fork and dig in.  I prefer to sit at a table with a fork and knife to share it.  It’s bigger than it appears in the photo.  Find these at numerous locations around the park.  This one is from Edelweiss Snacks in Fantasyland.

    I will be visiting this month. I can’t wait to try some of these goodies on your list with my sweet Mom, who is 81.

    You forgot about the caramel French toast at story tellers!!! It’s our favorite breakfast!!!!! The huevos rancheros is so good too!!!

  3. Aloha Grambi

    We miss the Tigger tails. When I heard about them I thought oh no … too much sugar for me but … then I tried one! It was 3 marshmallows on a stick that is then dipped in white chocolate dyed orange with orange flavoring and then milk chocolate is drizzled across to make them look like his tail. So good!

  4. Lorri

    Awesome! Its truly amazing post, I have got much clear idea concerning from this article.

    Any list the doesn’t include the clam chowder bowl in New Orleans Square cannot be considered complete or well researched.

    The Fried Green Tomato sandwich HAS left the Hungry Bear. I did some research, the sandwich IS at Cafe Orleans. A source (hostess) said they changed the recipe a bit. Said if I loved the original I would be disappointed. The price is $15 or $19? I was a bit shocked! It’s easy to fall in love with food items at Disneyland, most so yummy. Like the park the food changes with the times & latest ttends. I loved the Tuna Salad with Thousand Island dressing & trimmings at the Plaza Inn, it’s been long gone but I still remember it.

    1. Deanna

      Sooooo sad the Fried Green Tomato Sandwich isn’t at Cafe Orleans anymore, either! They do, however, have an AMAZING Cauliflower sandwich at the Red Rose Taverne (use to be Geppettos). For reals, it is a MUST try.
      The good news is the Hungry Bear has changed their onion rings recipe and it is OUT of this world!

  7. Christina

    Okay I just have to know! Where did you get those super cute gladiator sandals?! I bought some from Amazon and I love them but yours are way cuter!!

  8. Rebecca

    My favorite at DisneyWorld, my absolute had to have, was always the Mickey Rice Krispie treat. You can get it in multiple sizes, with a chocolate dipped back, with sprinkles……so many options. Found at most of the sweet shops, I’m sure they have to have them at Disneyland as well!!

  9. Laura

    Several of these are absolute MUSTS for me whenever I go to Disneyland! 😉 I always ALWAYS make a reservation at Blue Bayou for the Monte Cristo, the Gibson Girl Parlor is generally a stop for a sundae while I wait for a parade, love me some Mickey waffles, and I never miss a chance to get a Dole Whip. There’s a few on here I’ve put on my list to try, like the fries at Cafe Orleans. I will admit, though, that I was incredibly unimpressed with the famous turkey legs. I found them to be dry and fairly tasteless, not worth the hype in the slightest. Most Disney food is amazing. The turkey legs had me quite underwhelmed.

  10. Lauren

    Unfortunately, a few of these aren’t available anymore.
    I know for sure that the mini churros with the chocolate are gone. They were replaced with regular churros and a caramel – I find it sickeningly sweet ?
    The fried green tomato sandwich has been gone for a while. There are rumors that it will show up in another restaurant, but it hasn’t been around since September-ish.

    I am visiting Disneyland this week and after reading this post I knew I had to have the peanut butter graham cracker from Pooh Corner. I was so disappointed to discover they don’t have them anymore. They actually didn’t have any of the treats from Pooh Corner that are on this list 🙁 No fried green tomato sandwich at The Hungry Bear either. I’m hoping I can still track down some of the other yummy food on this list!

    1. Christina

      Oh no!! My husband will be there in March and I really wanted to try those treats from Pooh’s Corner. What a bummer 🙁 oh well, the other things on the list look amazing too. I know I won’t be able to try everything. There are some things I HAVE to have every time I go; lobster nachos from Cove Bar, Mickey waffles, churros, corn dogs, and the clam chowder in a bread bowl! Can’t wait!!

    2. Aubrey

      The peanut butter sandwich is still there. I saw it on this site, and I’ve gotten a couple times, with a year in between☺️ Still there, and yummy as ever!

  12. Stephanie

    We were at DL about 3 weeks ago. We tried many of the items on this list. I do have to say, I was extremely disappointed in the Monte Cristo at Cafe Orleans. Maybe we hit an off day or something, but there was very little meat/cheese in our and it was just OKAY at best. There just really wasn’t much flavor to it. The Parmesan fries though, oh man, they were AMAZING!!!

  13. Heather Christo

    LOL!!! I basically was laughing the whole way down because each thing looked more delicious and decadent than the last. But I am stuck on that first bite of peanut butter and chocolate- yeeessssss.
