Disneyland treats are legendary. You really can’t go to Disneyland without partaking in some Disneyland treats. There’s so many options to choose from! How’s a person to narrow it down, since there’s not enough time to eat all of them? That’s where I come in! I’ve compiled this list of my top Disneyland Treats and where to find them. This list is not in order of preference. I couldn’t rank them. It just didn’t seem fair. So, they are in no particular order. Did you favorite make my list?
I’ve got an episode on my podcast all about my favorite Disney treats. You can find here if you listen on apple podcasts. It’s also available on all the podcast platforms. Just search for Mix In Some Magic.
Disneyland churros may be the top Disneyland treat of all time! People love them and can’t get enough of them. You can find them throughout the parks. They are basically a Disneyland staple. If you’re visiting around holidays or special occasions you can find specialty churros. I prefer the specialty churros to the regular ones.
We can’t talk about top Disneyland treats without mentioning Dole Whips! Everyone loves them. You can find them in front of the Tiki Room. There’s a line outside the Tiki Room que area and one inside the que area. The inside line is always shorter. You can also mobile order them. There’s two versions of the classic dole whip. The first is the dole whip by itself which is just the pineapple soft serve. Then, there’s the dole whip float(my favorite!) which is the pineapple soft serve mixed with pineapple juice. You can also find dole whips over at the Tropical Hideaway. Here you can find different flavors(other than pineapple) like raspberry and orange.
Disneyland popcorn is the very best in the whole world. Maybe I feel this way because I love popcorn so much? Who knows, but popcorn is the perfect snack for waiting in line. You can find popcorn stands all around the parks. I did find some caramel popcorn at a popcorn cart near Award Wieners in California Adventure and it was incredible!
This Disneyland treat is iconic! It’s fashioned after the Matterhorn and even has “snow” on top. It’s a moist coconut flavored cookie with a chewy texture that is to die for! You can find it at the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe on Main Street. You may want to think about mobile ordering it early in your day because this popular treat will often sell out. I love it so much, I’ve created a copy cat recipe so I can enjoy them at home! You can find it here.
This is different from the macaroon. They are light and chewy and come in different flavors. They have al layer of cream or fruit in between. At Disneyland they are Mickey shaped with makes them taste even better, of course! These are divine! You can find them at the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe on Main street and they will often sell out, so mobile order one early if it’s on your list.
Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bar
Don’t be fooled. This is not your standard ice cream bar. It has to be pretty amazing to make my top Disneyland treats list! I fed these to my kids for years without ever trying one until a few years ago. I finally tried one and realized I had been missing out all these year! They are so good. You can find them at ice cream carts throughout the parks.
You really can’t go wrong with fried dough. What’s not to love? Disneyland makes them Mickey shaped and covered in powdered sugar. I’ve got a copy cat recipe for these little beauties too. You can find it here. Specialty version of the beignets can often be found during Halloween or the Holidays. My favorites are the butterscotch and peppermint.
Disneyland corndogs have almost a cult following! You can find them at the Little Red Wagon on Main Street(lines here get long!) or you can find them the Stage Door Cafe in Frontierland. Some people say the corndogs are much better at the Little Red Wagon, but I think they’re the same. We prefer Stage Door Cafe because the lines are shorter, you can get them with fries and there’s plenty of seating right outside.
If you’re a fan of soft pretzels, you’ll love these! Again, Mickey shaped food just tastes better. Sometimes you’re looking for a snack that’s not sweet and this is a good option. You can add the famous “plastic cheese” if you like. Obviously, it’s not really plastic cheese but it’s earned that nickname and is probably well deserved.
Mickey Caramel Apples
These are maybe the cutest treat at Disneyland. They are adorable, delicious and tempt me every time I visit. The problem is, Disney cast members won’t cut them for you. So, this deters me a bit. I wish they would cut them for you so you could enjoy them in the parks. Instead, this is more of a take home treat. Delicious, but not very convenient. You can find them at Candy Palace on Main Street and Pooh Corner in Critter Country.
The Grey Stuff
Try The Grey Stuff, it’s delicious! You can find this special treat at the Red Rose Tavern in Fantasyland. It’s a shortbread cookie under a red velvet cupcake topped with a raspberry covered by a swirl of grey stuff(mouse like texture with a light chocolate flavor) topped with sprinkles. It is worth the calories and so yummy!
Of all the top Disneyland treats this is by far my favorite! It’s my top Disneyland treat by a landslide! You can find it a the Golden Horseshoe Cafe. It’s cookie dough ice cream with a cookie butter sauce topped with whipped cream, extra cookie butter sauce and with two churros on the side. It’s delightful and the only downside is that it’s only available at Halloween time. So, of course I created a copycat recipe so I can eat it all the time. You can find it here
Obviously, you have a ton of choices when your considering treats at Disneyland. Hopefully this list of top Disneyland treats was helpful for you! If you’re planning a trip, check out my complete Disneyland planning guide. It will be so helpful for you!
