It’s been grilled cheese weather for us out there, and I’m pretty sure it has been for many of you as well! So it’s time to put together our list of the Best Grilled Cheese in Disney Restaurants…and I can’t wait to hear your additions!
You know we love cheese around here, and Disney has found lots of different ways to be creative with this particular recipe for success. Let’s take a look at our favorites in Disney World and Disneyland!
Walt Disney World Grilled Cheese
Before we catch a flight to California, let’s see what’s happening, grilled-cheese-wise, at Walt Disney World!
Tomato Bisque and Grilled Cheese at Beaches and Cream
OK, I’ll admit that this sammich is currently my #1 at Walt Disney World! I tried it for the first time back in 2012, and couldn’t get enough!
When you’re down for the count and need some sustenance to get through your park touring, trust me and head over to Beaches and Cream at Disney’s Beach Club Resort for their take on a familiar favorite: Tomato Bisque and Grilled Cheese.
Six flavorful cheeses make up the blend on this amazing entry. And buddied up with sourdough bread and super creamy tomato bisque, this is comfort food perfection (you can also add bacon or ham to give it an extra punch of flavor!).
Grilled Three-Cheese Sandwich at Woody’s Lunch Box
What’s so great about this one? Three cheeses — provolone, cheddar, and American — melted together on a delicious sourdough make this the perfect creamy addition to our list. It’s simple and it’s lovely, and the ease of being able to grab this offering from a walk-up window is also a plus.
Croque Monsieur at Primo Piatto
Listen, this is a CLASSIC combo of ham, cheese, and Bechamel sauce between toasty bread with even MORE cheese on top. There is exactly ONE surefire way to plus up a Grilled Cheese and that is by covering the outside of the bread in cheese too.
Plus, there’s a breakfast version of this sammie called the Croque Madame which is the same thing but with an egg on top!
Grilled Cheese at BoardWalk Bakery
This one is SO buttery it’s almost ridiculous, and that’s what we love about it. You pair that ultra buttery cheesiness with crispy bread and you’ve got yourself a very happy Grilled Cheese lover.
Croissant Jambon Fromage at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie
If you know us here at DFB, you know we LOVE the eats in EPCOT’s France Pavilion — especially at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisseries. And their Croissant Jambon Fromage is no exception!
Ham, cheese, and Bechamel sauce on a soft, warm croissant. OMG. We want one RIGHT. NOW.
This eat is the perfect portion for breakfast or small lunch and it’s got allllll the high-quality ingredients we’ve come to expect from Les Halles!
Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich at ABC Commissary
ABC Commissary didn’t use to be a favorite restaurant of ours, but a recent menu revamp helped us to change our minds. Part of that? The Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich!
We’re talkin’ grilled sourdough toasted with buffalo chicken, monterey, provolone, cheddar, and cream cheese served with a side of buffalo sauce.
If you’re not a fan of buffalo sauce flavors, then this might not be the “best” for you. BUT, if you like buffalo like we do, then RUN (don’t walk) to ABC Commissary.
The Grilled Cheeeeeese (with a Griddled Glazed Donut Bun) at Everglazed
And we’ve got a big hit on the Grilled Cheese front coming out of the left field. The new Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew in Disney Springs features The Grilled Cheeeeeese typically served on a griddled sweet bun. But get this, you can get it on a Glazed DONUT Bun instead.
Bonus, you can even add BACON to this bad boy. And yes…it’s as good as it sounds.
This sammie is not for the faint of heart but if you’re looking for a way to make a Grilled Cheese even MORE decadent and delicious, we might have found it.
Disneyland Grilled Cheese
Disneyland has some amazing grilled cheese options…some that you might not expect! Let’s check ’em out over on the West Coast!
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup at Jolly Holiday Bakery
Three layers of cheese on toasted white bread are cut into three “fingers,” perfect for dipping!
And the soup is creamy and the perfect accompaniment.
Three-Cheese Monte Cristo at Cafe Orleans
Three cheeses — Swiss, mozzarella, and double-cream brie — are layered between rich bread, which is deep-fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar. The berry puree dipping sauce takes this straight over the top and into grilled cheese Nirvana.
It’s very rich but well worth the calories (and the nap you’ll have to take afterward)!
Cheddar Cheese Stick at Corn Dog Castle
When is a grilled cheese not a sandwich? When it’s dipped in cornbread batter and fried like a corndog!
That’s right, just when you thought there was nothing original under the sun with retro food favorites, Corn Dog Castle along California Adventure’s Pixar Pier proves you wrong with their Cheddar Cheese Stick.
Freshly prepared and perfectly decadent, no conversation about grilled cheese would be complete without this treat.
And now, please excuse me while I hop on a plane. I’m not sure whether I’m headed east or west, but it’s time for some Disney grilled cheese! 🙂
