Popcone is the pit stop for a reinvented street food we love: Elote. You know Elote — corn on the cob slathered in mayo and dusted with Tajin spice. (We even told you about a DIY version available at Disneyland!)
If grazing at a trendy food truck round up sounds good to you, then you’ll love this news out of Disneyland!
During the month of October, be sure to stop by Downtown Disney District to check out an array of dishes from three new food trucks.
Find Habit Burger Grill and the Dos Chino Taco Truck on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, this weekend through October 30. On most days throughout the weekends of October, you’ll be able to catch BrewWings as well. [Read more…]

I know you’ve seen people walking around Disney parks with giant turkey legs. BUT, did you know that at every stand that sells turkey legs in Disneyland also sells chimichangas?
Yep, crispy fried burritos filled with beef and beans. I myself had not eaten one until recently. Mainly because they look pretty disgusting.
However, I am almost embarrassed to say that they are sinfully delicious. Served up warm, the outer “shell” is crisp while the center is soft and flavorful. In the mixture, the beans and beef are almost blended together as one, which sounds crazy, but it’s true. You can see in the photo above it’s hard to distinguish…
The filling is not too spicy; in fact most stands offer [Read more…]
I’m excited to present a guest review all about fellow blogger Beth Chaney’s exploration of street food and snacks during her recent visit to the Disneyland Paris resort.
Hi DFB readers! I’m excited to share a bit of my experience at the Disneyland Paris (DLP) resort. As a long time Disney fan and Disney park goer, I had to add a day at Disneyland Paris to the itinerary of my recent trip to France. And one of the things I was most excited to see at DLP was how Imagineers had transformed the American park experience for a European audience — especially the food!
Food is such a part of the Disney park experience — from popcorn to Mickey Bars to rice krispie treats; but how would that be captured for an international audience? Especially for an audience that is supposed to be a bunch of foodies? And what better place to explore than along the streets of the Disneyland Park!
Street Food is big at Walt Disney World, and the same thing was true at DLP. Although not as numerous as at the Florida parks, there were lots of little carts on the street selling snacks and sweets. The most popular item? Candy apples, which seemed to be at just about every cart!
After candy apples, the next most popular item at the street carts were “hot dogs.” But these aren’t American hot dogs (although those are available at Casey’s on Main Street — which just happens to be in the exact same spot as the outpost at WDW!). These are more foot long sausages baked into french bread and sometimes topped with cheese. So more of a sandwich than an American hot dog.
Also popular at the street food stands — candy bars. Not Disney branded or labeled candy bars, but the [Read more…]
While you can always get turkey legs, funnel cakes, Dole Whips, and Mickey Bars at kiosks throughout Walt Disney World and Disneyland, sometimes you might be looking for something a little bit different:
Walt Disney World
In Disney World, every once in a while, when the wind is blowing correctly and there’s just the right amount of pixie dust, you can find… egg rolls and corn dogs!
This kiosk is in the Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland, and it sells Pork and Shrimp egg rolls, vegetable egg rolls, and [Read more…]
