Dining in TOKYO Disneyland: Pre-Packaged Souvenir Snacks

One of my very favorite things about my visit to the Tokyo Disney Resort was browsing the shops there.  The packaged souvenir snacks were aplenty; shelves, shelves and more shelves filled with unique treats.  I was totally obsessed with the adorable packaging.  Another plus?  There were plastic displays showing you exactly what was inside of that adorable packaging.

Even with the plastic displays though, I still had no idea what some of the things were!  Below is a photo tour of some of the items I found adorable and interesting, and a few that were just plain bizarre.

Let’s start over at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel.  There is a great little convenience store there that carries a wide variety of Disney themed food, snacks, drinks, candy, etc.  Below are some of the adorable drinks that they had. The Snow White bottle is an apple & mango drink, the Tsum Tsum bottles are tea, and the Frozen ones are bottled water.

I actually tried Mickey and Minnie “Potato” crackers below.  They are sort of a cracker/potato chip hybrid.  Each puffy piece is Mickey shaped!

I love this little box of Mickey Milk.  The only reason I know this is milk is because I asked a friend!

Dining in Tokyo Disneyland: Park Snacks, Plus a Few Meals, Too!

There are so many unique eats at the Tokyo Disney Resort.  In this post, I’ve complied most of the items my family tried on our recent trip. Rather than do individual posts on each thing, here’s a mega post featuring them all! Ready, let’s go to Tokyo!

I’m going to start with my very first snack stop at Tokyo Disney Sea. We stopped at Refrescos’ in the Mediterranean Harbor area for a little bit of everything: A Gyoza Sausage Bun, a Maple Mickey Churro, and Cream of Corn Soup.  Basically one of every thing on the menu.  We were really excited because there was absolutely zero line.  I’m told that the Gyoza Sausage Bun is one of the most popular items at Disney Sea and sometimes people wait over an hour for one.  We lucked out because apparently this was an area that just recently started selling them.  Normally they are only at the stand in Mysterious Island.

I was most excited about the Maple Mickey Churro, but unfortunately, it fell way short of the churros we have at the Disneyland Resort.  Although it scored major points for being Mickey shaped, the churro itself was hard, dry and had very little flavor.  Really cute, but not at all worth it.

The Corn Soup was fabulous.  It’s not creamy like a chowder you’d find in the states, but it is still flavorful and hits the spot on a chilly day.  I love that it’s served in [Read more…]

Dining in TOKYO Disneyland: Little Green Dumplings

I’ve seen them on Twitter for a few years now.  Alien Dumplings, LGM Mochi, Little Green Men Dumplings, Toy Story Alien Mochi…  Whatever you want to call them, they’ve been on my Disney “must try” bucket list since I first laid eyes on them.

I ‘m here to report that I’ve crossed them off of my bucket list AND I’ve finally learned their “official” name: Little Green Dumplings!

Little Green Dumplings

Little Green Dumplings are obviously a tribute to Toy Story’s Little Green Men.  They’re quite possibly the cutest edible thing I’ve ever had.  Little Green Dumplings can be found at both Tokyo Disney Sea and Tokyo Disneyland.

I feasted on mine from the Soft Landing snack stand in Tomorrowland at Tokyo Disneyland.  It’s a small ice cream stop upstairs near Star Tours.  We used the [Read more…]

Dining in TOKYO Disneyland: The Great American Waffle Co.

Who doesn’t love a Mickey Waffle? We’ve dedicated lots of posts to this beloved treat here on the blog. In fact, it’s probably one of the only universal Mickey shaped foods that can be found throughout all Disney parks.

Mickey Waffle Double Take Cape May Cafe


We’ve got them here in the states at the Disneyland Resort and they’re aplenty in Walt Disney World.  I’ve also had one at Aulani.  I saw them at Disneyland Paris, and I’ve seen photos of them from Hong Kong.

But Tokyo Disneyland? They have an entire restaurant dedicated to Mickey Waffles!  I give you The Great American Waffle Co.

The Great American Waffle Co. is located in Tokyo Disneyland’s World Bazaar area.  I fell in love with this spot the minute I saw this Mickey waffle sign hanging outside.  Wouldn’t it be awesome if this sign hung above every place in the world that sells Mickey Waffles??? It really should be the universal sign for Mickey waffles.

Dining in TOKYO Disneyand: The Pizza Spring Roll

Having just returned from an amazing trip to the Tokyo Disney Resort, there are a few items there that I just have to share with you!  The Pizza Spring Roll being basically at the tip top of my list. Yes, you read that right PIZZA SPRING ROLL!

Pizza Spring Roll

Located in Tokyo Disneyland’s Toon Town is this adorable little food cart that serves two types of Spring Rolls.  Don’t mind my husband ordering in what appears to look like a Ninja Turtle outfit. It happened to be pouring rain!

Toon Town Spring Roll Cart

The two types of Spring Rolls offered are Pizza (yum) and Egg & Shrimp (not so yum).  If you’re curious about pricing, 290 Yen is about $2.42.  Very reasonable for a filling snack.

The Spring Rolls are pre-made and awaiting your arrival at Toon Town.  Both types look identical, so the different sleeves let you know which type of roll you have in hand.  The red packaging is the Pizza Spring Roll and the yellow is the Egg & Shrimp.  Perfect planning!

Dining in Tokyo Disneyland: The Many Faces of Popcorn at Tokyo Disney Resort

I’ve always known that the Tokyo Disney Resort had multiple popcorn flavors, but I really had no idea how serious the popcorn game there was until I saw it for myself.  It’s really like its own micro-culture.

People bring their collectable & rare resort buckets from the past and have them refilled, some people wear more than one popcorn bucket at a time, and we even had people offering us samples right out of their buckets. It’s seriously SO MUCH FUN!

Popcorn is so popular, there’s even popcorn themed merchandise that lists some of the many flavors available.  Look at this fun zipper pouch I bought: Delicious Explosion Popcorn!

Another fun popcorn fact? Tokyo Disney has Roastie Toasties just like Disneyland here in Anaheim. Not all of the stands have them, but several do.  To see more about Roastie Toasties & Disney Popcorn in the states, check out this great Popcorn Gallery post AJ did a while back.  There’s also a fun little video on the Disney Parks Blog here.

We made it a goal on our recent trip to Tokyo to try as many types of popcorn that we could.  Although we missed a few, we did a pretty good job in our 4 days at the parks.  Now, on to the flavors!

Let’s start with one that I was a little unsure about but it ended up being my absolute favorite. So much so that we had it twice on our trip! Soy Sauce and Butter.  It’s salty, savory and delicious.  We found this cart at Tokyo Disneyland park.

Guest Review: Eats and Treats at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea

Welcome guest author Audrey B. with a review from Tokyo Disneyland!

When I recently had the opportunity to spend the day at the Tokyo Disney Resort, I was ecstatic but a bit apprehensive about the food situation.

Tokyo Disneyland

Although I had originally planned to spend the entire day at the DisneySea park, thanks to meticulous tour planning and FastPass I was able to enjoy all of the attractions by 2pm.

I could not resist jumping on the monorail and heading over to Disneyland Park, and here’s where you’ll find one of the most popular food items in Tokyo Disney!

Souvenir Popcorn Buckets

One thing you will notice if you ever make it to this park is that nearly everyone carries a souvenir popcorn bucket!

Popcorn in Tokyo Disneyland!

The popcorn is quite a big deal and a popular snack in Tokyo Disneyland. Carts can be found throughout the park, each offering unique flavors such as Black Pepper, Sea Salt, Curry, Milk Tea, Cranberry, and Soy Sauce & Butter.

After riding Pooh’s Hunny Hunt (arguably the most advanced, whimsical, and unique dark ride ever in the entire world!), I followed my tummy for a little smackerel of Honey Popcorn! It was undoubtedly my favorite out of everything I ate on the trip!

Tokyo DisneySea

Because I spent most of my time at DisneySea, a remarkably beautiful and unique counterpart to Disneyland, we’ve got a lot to talk about here.

Maple Balls

In the Agrabah Marketplace, I found a stand called Sultan’s Oasis, which served juice, ice cream, and something called Maple Balls, which I had to try!

Not quite like doughnuts, but not quite like cake, either, these scrumptious little nuggets had a slightly chewy texture, complimented with the crunch of the walnut topping.

New York Deli

For my full meal, I headed over to New York Deli! I’ve spent lots of time in Japan, and while the warmth of the people always makes it an enjoyable experience, the cuisine is quite exotic. And most [Read more…]

Fun Find: Disney Bento Boxes

Bento artist Mike Kravanis told us that his interest in bentos started after trips to Tokyo Disney Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland:

I was amazed by the adorable and creative food both resorts served. Tokyo Disney had sandwiches shaped like Donald Duck’s feet, melon buns shaped like Mike Wazowski, and sweet mochi chicks in Mickey egg cups. At Hong Kong Disneyland we ate at the Crystal Lotus, which is home to the most amazing character-shaped dining experience. They offer dim sum shaped like characters, including the Three Little Pigs, Chicken Little, Duffy the Bear, and the Little Green Men from Toy Story.





While in Japan, Mike bought a couple of bento boxes as motivation to take his lunch to work. He had a bad habit of eating out of the vending machine, or worse, skipping lunch all together.

Guest Review: Snacks at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea

Welcome back guest author Zachary Ott with a photo review of the snacks found at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea!

Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea offer some fun and unexpected eats for guests! Check out what we uncovered!

This is one of the many Disney-branded vending machines selling an assortment of soda, tea, and juice drinks.

Numerous popcorn carts dot the landscape of both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. This particular cart, found outside the Winnie the Pooh themed attraction, sells popcorn flavored with honey and matching popcorn buckets.

Other popcorn flavors included: Curry, Sea Salt, Strawberry, and Maple.

These were two of the bakery options available off of Main Street. On the left is a Mickey Icon shaped banana bread and on the right is a semi-sweet melon bread baked to look like Mike from Monsters Inc.
