We are back in Disneyland today with a review of a “Secret Menu” item from Stage Door Cafe! You’ll find this hidden gem in Disneyland’s Frontierland, right around the corner from the Golden Horseshoe Saloon.
This hard-to-find eatery is teensy, with barely enough space for more than ten people in the counter service ordering area.
But that shouldn’t stop you from scoping it out! Pretty much everything on the menu is something you want to eat. Trust me.
You might recall some of our favorites from the Stage Door Cafe, like this perfect Funnel Cake.
And this one is particularly delicious (and gorgeous!). Of course, when we’re not eating a Stage Door Funnel Cake, you might find us clinging to a hand-dipped Corn Dog (Stage Door is one of three places you can get these famous Corn Dogs in the Disneyland Resort).
But on this visit, our Disneyland correspondent, Heather Sievers, was after an item not listed on the current menu.
Heather ordered a Secret Menu item: Mozzarella Sticks.
This crunchy, cheesy, toasty snack comes with six sticks, a side of fries, and a choice between two dipping sauces — marinara and ranch. Basically, these are your standard chain restaurant sticks — nothing great, but not bad, either.
Heather tried both of the sauces and deduced that the marinara (pictured) was a little bland and she ultimately preferred the ranch dipping sauce.
Heather reports that this snack, priced at $8.79, could be the perfect snack to share on a cold night at Disneyland, even though there’s no real wow factor. (It’s a good one to keep in mind for picky eaters, though!)
Other Secret Menu Options
While the Mozzarella Sticks are always a secret menu option at Stage Door Cafe (e.g. you can always ask for them, no matter the time of year), MousePlanet notes a few more temporary secret items available just during Disneyland Resort’s limited run of the Main Street Electrical Parade! At Refreshment Corner, you can find Firefly Chili with corn chips and shredded cheese for 3.49 and Chili Mac in a bread bowl for $10.99. At Galactic Grill, you can pick up a Secret Galactic Burger on a brioche bun, topped with American cheese and burger sauce, served with a side of fries. Finally, at Plaza Inn, ask for the Fried Chicken and Mickey Mouse Mini Waffles! So many secret items to try!
