Dining in Disneyland: Snacks and More in Disneyland Paris

Heather Sievers, our Dining in Disneyland columnist, shares her recent adventure to Disneyland Paris with a whole slew-o-pics of food in the park!

This summer has been absolutely amazing. I’ve been on the go for 3 weeks all over Europe, which included an 11-day Disney Mediterranean Cruise followed by 3 days in London and 3 days in Paris. I begged and pleaded for a trip to Disneyland Paris and guess what? I got my way!

My cruise dining photos are amazing, over 1,000 of them if you can believe it, but I just couldn’t wait to share some super fun pics of the snacks and special treats that we found in Disneyland Paris.

Only there for one short day, we really made the most of it. We spent half of the day at Walt Disney Studios and the latter half at Disneyland. Both parks were beautiful as well as FULL of amazingly yummy snacks. Unfortunately, while I did not try most of them, I did drool over the sights and smells. Enjoy!

The first thing I noticed when we entered the Toy Story Playland at the Studios was an adorable “Barrel of Monkeys” store. While my boys rode “RC Racer,” I took a peek inside and found something that made me very excited…

…Disneyland Paris has their own Haribo gummy line! There were marshmallows, sour gummies, sweet gummies — gummies galore!

I also saw these “apple straws,” which were not Haribo. In hindsight, I really wish I’d bought some to try. I’m not sure if they were “gummy” — they looked almost like chewing gum, but I think they were more like a licorice. Anyhow, they looked interesting and I’m pretty much a fan of anything green apple flavored.

Below the gummies was a selection of chips, popcorn, and cotton candy.

We also saw lots and lots of lollipops!

Another treat trend I noticed in Paris were marshmallows. So many pretty treats to choose from.

(Editor’s Note: Check out Erin Foster’s Disneyland Paris Boardwalk Candy Palace post for more sweet treats from Disneyland Paris!)

Something that really disturbed me was that Disneyland Paris did NOT have Mickey Bars. Their standard ice cream cart included a menu of four items: the Super Twister, which was a fruity Big Stick type Popsicle; a Magnum Bar, almond ice cream covered in chocolate with toffee pieces; the Cornetto Enigma, a “Drumstick” type treat; and believe it or not, cups of Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough ice cream.

My boys tried the Super Twisters and loved them. Fruity and refreshing. Their only complaint? The bee situation. There are bees EVERYWHERE at Disneyland Paris right now, and they especially like Super Twister Popsicles.

Many of the Ice Cream Stands also had these apples, which to me looked like candied apples. The English sign I saw called them toffee apples and the French one called them Pomme d’ Amour.

We only saw them at the beginning of the day, and by the time I wanted to try one, they were no longer for sale. If the bees get too bad, they stop selling them. Apparently bees also really love the Pomme d’ Amour.

Don't They Look Delicious?

Another ice cream treat we stumbled across was the “Ice Cool Guitar,” which was sold near the Rock N’ Roller Coaster in Walt Disney Studios.

Now, it’s time to head over to Disneyland Park! When we first walked into Main Street USA “Paris,” we noticed that it looked a lot like our Main Street here at home in Anaheim. We did, however, notice some major differences as well.

I’m sure you can see some similarities. Now, for some differences. The Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlour? Well, they serve Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, which I thought was sort of odd…

Ben & Jerry's?

Something that my husband loved? This coffee stand. They make it fresh for you right there AND there’s an option to get a Mickey Cake with it!

Another major difference? In Anaheim, we have our churro stands, we have our popcorn stands, we have our ice cream stands. Pretty much the same standard food carts around the parks.

What I noticed at Disneyland Paris was variety. Crepes? Waffles? Tea Time Snacks? Pasta? Specialty Pop Corn? Freshly Spun Cotton Candy? Most made fresh right there as you order. It’s just not fair! Again, I wish I could have tried everything, but with one day to spend, we chose rides over food. I did however take photos to share.

Coconut or Sugar Flavored Popcorn? Again, wish I would've tried...

All of these carts were intriguing and looked delicious. The one that really caught my eye, though, was located right inside the entrance of the castle. We’re so used to the bagged or “bucketed” cotton candy, we rarely see it being made fresh to order.

This adorable stand featured a cast member making “old fashioned” cotton candy served on a wooden stick. But, the purchasing was actually a little complicated. You first had to go into a store to buy a ticket, then present your ticket to the candy maker, and she would then spin you a fresh spool of cotton candy. I loved the hand painted signs and look of the whole process. Really unique and adorable.

AND, just for fun, I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos from the day. So grateful to have spent the day at Disneyland Paris, but one day was not enough!

    Wow Heather, those are some incredible pictures, especially all of the Disneyland Park vendoring cart snacks. I can not wait to get back the DLP, I remember some great meals there but I don’t recall any these snacks. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Chris says:

    Great pics and so timely for us, as we’ll be heading to DLRP later this month! I really love that barrel of monkeys store. Will there be a partie deux for the restaurants too?

  3. Beth says:

    Chris, if you’re looking for a restaurant, go for Walt’s! We ate there in April and it was fantastic!

  4. Becky says:

    I just came back from Disneyland Paris myself! Unfortunately, the only snack I bought was a crepe, and it was not good. The stand had the crepe stone out front so I assumed the crepe would be made fresh but it was not. The crepe was cold and not very good (in fact, I did not even finish it because the taste was so sub-par). The toffee apples were everywhere though! There were even more than just the plain red-coated ones. They had lots of fancy looking apples that I wish I had tried instead!

    We have been avid Orlando visitors for years averaging at least one visit a year for the last decade. My wife is in Paris on business for 6 months so we bought some Passeport Annuel Fantasy passes and have been a dozen or so times in the past twp months.

    The snacks and quick service food at the two DLRP resorts are quite good and i have not been disappointed. Specific mentions are the pasta and pizza at Colonel Hathi’s in Adventureland, The baked goods on Main Street USA and the Ribs and Chilli at the Cowboy Cookout in Frontierland. All really good, large portions, and beautifully set up dining areas. Completely on-par with what i expect from Disney dining.

    The full service restaurants that we have tried however have been vastly inferior to the full service options in WDW.

    We have been to the Silver Spur Steakhouse, The Lucky Nugget Saloon, Toy Story Pizza Planet and the California Grill and all were disappointing. In general the prices are too high, the food is not great and the service is weak or in the cases of the buffets, non-existent.

    Even in mid-July, we have had no trouble getting a table for any of these, which should have been a hint to what we would expect. I am yet to walk out “wowed” from a full service meal in DLRP

    I am yet to try Walt’s, The Blue Lagoon (which overlooks the PotC ride similar to San Angel Inn) or Auberge de Cendrillion. They are all on my list for later in the summer though. I will update again after trying more.

    How fun was this post! A whole lotta fun I’ll tell you!

    I’m more a sucker for baked items. So the Mickey cakes and waffles looked intriguing to me. Those are the ones I would try – to answer the Facebook question.

  7. Heather says:

    Thanks everyone! I do have some more Disneyland Paris posts coming up, AND one is dinner at Walt’s on Main Street USA, Paris.

    @Becky – Bummer on the crepes, they smelled so good!

  8. Savorique says:

    I wonder how long it takes to eat that huge Super Twister… If bees give a helping hand, it might take less than an hour :)

  9. Emily says:

    I visited by myself a few years back (the rest of my group chose to go to Versailles instead) and had the most amazing tandoori chicken pizza for lunch! Perfect spices, peppers, moist chicken…I remember burning my mouth on the cheese because it smelled so good that I couldn’t wait for it to cool before eating. Indian food seems to be much more prolific in Europe (esp England) than here in the US so I was in heaven eating Indian food during a day in Disneyland Paris!

    Awesome pictures! Loving this report, good job!!!

  11. Kayla says:

    I was there back in early April, and while I was also disappointed with the lack of Mickey Bars, I did happen to randomly find them in a ferry station that provides service across the English Channel, so they do exist somewhere in France!
