Disneyland is a treasure trove of amazing snacks and goodies, and I think it would take us list after list to mention all of my favorites. But I received a reader request for my top 5, so I knew I had to take a shot at choosing!
SO, let me add a disclaimer…I have SO MANY MORE than 5 favorite snacks at Disneyland. But if you want to get a good overview of some incredible classics, head for these. (I’m sensing a “Next Top 5 Snacks” post coming soon. ;-D)
And I want to hear YOUR favorites, too! What Disneyland goodies are your must-have eats? Share with us in the comments below so others going to Disneyland can benefit from your experience!
Hand-dipped and made fresh to order, these corn dogs are an indulgence, but a worthy one! Get them in Disneyland at the Little Red Wagon, too.
Of course, if you want to go vegetarian, the Cheese Stick is pretty awesome…
I’ll admit, though… my favorite is the Hot Link Corn Dog!
Peanut Butter Sandwich from Pooh Corner
Home to many incredible and unique treats, Critter Country’s Pooh Corner has my favorite peanut butter sandwich covered in chocolate.
Start with a graham cracker, then pile on salty-sugary peanut butter before smothering it in a generous helping of milk chocolate. It’s called a sandwich (maybe because of the shape?) but it only has one graham cracker!
These can also be found at the Candy Palace on Main Street! I used to be able to get them in Disney World, but they’ve been gone for a couple of years. Now, they’re a classic, Disneyland-only treat. Maybe not as sexy as some other snacks, but delicious all the same.
Caramel Popcorn from Disney California Adventure
You’ll only find this version of caramel popcorn in Disney California Adventure at three separate popcorn kiosks.
What makes it so special? It all begins with your favorite Disney popcorn — buttery kernels of fluffy white corn — bathed in a thin layer of just the right amount of caramel sweetness. This stuff is addictive. ADDICTIVE I tell you.
Matterhorn Macaroon from Jolly Holiday
Jolly Holiday Bakery doesn’t disappoint with this imaginative mountain-treat.
The Matterhorn Macaroon is a dense, sweet, chewy over-sized coconut macaroon baked to a golden brown. The peak is dipped into white chocolate and layered with white sprinkles for a lovely, snowy effect!
What makes this a top 5, besides the fact that it’s delicious, is that it’s unique to Disneyland! A must-have!
Chimichanga from Disney California Adventure
I’m a new fan to these crispy fried burritos filled with beef and beans. The crisp shell is perfectly complemented by the soft and flavorful (but not overly spicy) center.
You’ll find your chimichanga to sample at kiosks around Disney California Adventure and Disneyland.
Okey dokey — it’s time to share your favorites! After all, I tried many of these snacks due to the suggestion of DFB readers. Thank you. Share your experience below so that others headed to Disneyland can benefit!
