As a refresher, Mobile Order is a process available via the Disneyland app which  allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at participating Counter Service restaurants, thereby avoiding time spent in line! (Here’s a tip: if you aren’t seeing the icon allowing you to “Order Food” in your Disneyland app, be sure to install the latest update. )

Mobile Order Locations Announced for Disneyland (PLUS Early Access NOW for Annual Passholders!)

Ordering and picking up your food at a Counter Service restaurant in Disney World has never been easier thanks to the introduction of Mobile Order: a process that allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at participating Counter Service restaurants, thereby avoiding time spent in line. So it was great news when it was revealed that Mobile Order will be coming to Disneyland, too, via the Disneyland app!

News: Indoor Seating Area Coming to Disneyland’s Bengal Barbecue

So, remember just a few weeks ago when we paid a visit to Bengal Barbecue in Disneyland to try their new Jungle Julep?

Well, just like always, we took our Jungle Julep and strolled around with it. Why? Because — even with the popularity of this Adventureland Skewer spot — this little kiosk has never had a dedicated seating area. [Read more…]

News and Review: The Jungle Julep at Bengal Barbecue in Disneyland

Bengal Barbecue is one of our favorite places to pick up a quick and hearty snack in Disneyland. You already know that we can’t get enough of their meat and veggie skewers.

And it’s true: they put just about anything on a stick, with fun names like the Banyan Beef Skewer and the Safari Skewer. (Though we can never resist their stick-free signature, the Tiger Tail).  [Read more…]

Spotted: Special Limited Run Skewer at Disneyland’s Bengal Barbecue

You may already be well familiar with some of the specialties of the house at this legendary little Adventureland kiosk, like the Banyan Beef Skewer and the Safari — better known as the Bacon-wrapped Asparagus —  Skewer. But DFB Disneyland Correspondent Heather Sievers just happened upon — and, of course, sampled! — a Special Skewer. [Read more…]

Top Meals Under $20 in Disneyland

We can all use a few tips when it comes to planning vacations at Disney. And of course, we think the food is just about the most important part of the trip!

Budgeting for all of the special meals that you’d like to enjoy is a big concern. And it may seem impossible to cut corners and save a little here and there while still enjoying yourself. But with a little creative planning, you can find some wonderful meals at some of the coolest places, all for less than you might think.

Previously, we shared our Top Picks at Walt Disney World for Meals Under $20. Today, we’re back to celebrate some fantastic meals that you can enjoy at Disneyland for around $20 or less. This is by no means exhaustive — there are lots more where these came from. But for now, come with us and check out some of the great options we have to share! [Read more…]

Review: Disneyland’s Bengal Barbecue

Did you know that Bengal Barbecue (Disneyland skewer spot extraordinaire) just turned 25 years old?

So, what better way to celebrate than a stop for some — okay, make that ALL — the skewers on the menu (and maaaaaybe a few other treats to boot)! That’s exactly what I did on my recent trip to Disneyland.

Say hello to the big ol’ scary Tiger, because we’re FINALLY heading back to Bengal Barbecue! (I missed you!)

Atmosphere

So, what’s the scene like in this Adventureland spot? Well, you’re pretty much looking at it ;) .

Ok, that’s not entirely true. There are a few umbrella-covered tables nearby, but portability is really the name of the game here (in essence, it’s a kiosk). Still, even for a space this small, it’s certainly not without a few Disney details.

And the food itself plays a part in creating the atmosphere, too, since you can watch Cast Member grill masters at work, creating your order with a side of char-grilled smells wafting through the air. This chick, by the way, was awesome.

Our Favorite Savory Snacks in Disneyland

Here at DFB, we talk a little about sweet snacks. You know, now and then.

Favorite Disneyland Snacks

Ok. We talk about them a LOT. And when we aren’t talking about them, it’s probably because we’re eating them. So we can talk about them some more.

But that shouldn’t lead you to believe that we love savory snacks any less.

I’ve talked about many of my favorite sweets, and even a few sweet and salty options. But today, I’m giving the post over completely to the non-sweet team.

These guys can double as a meal if you’d like them to. Or they can just give you that little boost between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Let’s take a closer look at some of my favorites.

Flavored Popcorn at Cozy Cone Motel

Recently, I discovered a stand in Epcot that’s offering one of the best things ever — Flavored Popcorn! While we’ve seen the reports of such delights from Tokyo Disneyland, it’s the first time something besides Caramel Corn has made much of a splash at Walt Disney World.

But that isn’t the case at Disneyland, where Flavored Popcorn has been a mainstay of at the Cozy Cone Motel since it opened!

And inside that Popcone, there are some yummy Flavored Popcorn options. They change up every once in a while, so you’ll never know what you might get!

Personally, I’d be pretty happy with either Dill Pickle OR Nacho Cheese!

Skewers and Tiger Tails at Bengal Barbecue

Bengal Barbecue is one of my favorite stops for a quick bite in all of Disneyland. In fact, it made my Top 10 List of Favorite Disneyland Fast Food Joints.

Don't Look for Much in the Way of Seating at Bengal Barbecue

Don’t Look for Much in the Way of Seating at Bengal Barbecue

The spot is little more than a stand with a grill. Don’t look for scads of seating; there’s not much. But what they do have plenty of are delicious savory bites that can serve as either a snack or a meal.

And the name of the game here is Meat on Skewers. (Okay…there are a few veggies, too.)

I have a hard time choosing a favorite at Bengal, so I’ll show you a bunch! I like to get a few of the different options and share. (Or not.)

I recommend starting with the Chieftain Chicken Skewer. Chunks of Chicken Meat are grilled and then smothered in a sweet, slightly spicy Chili Sauce.
