Dining in Disneyland: Banana Fritters from Royal St. Veranda

Royal St. Veranda in New Orleans Square is one of my favorite dining gems in Disneyland.  They are most known for their Clam Chowder in a Bread Bowl, but I go there for the fritters!

This spot is located just underneath the staircase to the Dream Suite — right next to Pirates of the Caribbean. It’s simply a walk-up window and a few tables and chairs scattered around. Nothing major, and nothing visually to draw you in. But the menu has always been a guest favorite and you’re about to see why!

Deemed as “Sweets” on the menu board, Royal St. Veranda switches out their New Orleans Fritters seasonally.

The fritters are waiting for you upon order. I was worried that since they were sitting in a warmer, they might not be fresh; but they must have been just made because they did not disappoint.

In the past, we’ve tried Apple and Pumpkin fritters, and now we’re checking out Banana Fritters!  The fritters are $4.49 and served as a trio.  They are coated with Cinnamon and Sugar and topped with Raspberry Sauce.

Served up warm; they are crisp on the outside with a gooey banana center. I love bananas, so these were a perfect seasonal treat for me.

As you can see, the serving size is quite large for a sub-$5 treat. The fritters here are nearly always fresh and delicious, so it’s worth plunking down a fiver to get the goods.

One more simple, unique Disneyland treat that you can’t get anywhere else in the park!

I highly recommend a visit to Royal St. Veranda if you’re in the mood for hearty treats. As I said, the gumbo and clam chowder in bread bowls have always been the biggest draw here — and they’re wonderful. But if you love bananas like I do, head on over to this tiny spot ASAP and grab some fritters!  You will be glad you did!!!
