Our 5 Must-Eat Disneyland Treats

Besides riding the rides, watching the shows, and hunting down the characters, one thing many people love about Disneyland is the food. Now, I may not be a pro at the restaurants, but I definitely have some favorite Disney treats.

The treats – you know, the snacks that help you recharge and slow down for a minute while you’re bouncing from ride to ride…
And, well, let’s face it. There’s a lot going on at Disneyland, and when you don’t get to go often, you want to be sure you’re hitting all of the right spots and eating all of the right food. Here I’m sharing our top 5 classic Disney treats that you should definitely put on your list on your next trip!
1. Cream Cheese-filled Pretzel
Where to find it: Any pretzel cart around the park
Most people go to the pretzel cart to get the giant Mickey-shaped pretzels. As cute as they are (and Instagrammable), they’re still your standard pretzel. Enter the cream-cheese filled pretzel. If you enjoy any cream-cheese treat (danishes? Cheesecake?), you will love this one. Trust me.
2. Mint Julep drink (non-alcoholic)
Where to find it:  Mint Julep Bar, New Orleans Square
It’s simple and refreshingly minty. It’s not blow-your-mind amazing, but it does the trick when you need to rehydrate and  recharge with a fun flavor.  Its simplicity is part of what makes it enjoyable. You also buy it at the same place where you can find…
3. Mickey-shaped Beignets
Where to find it: Mint Julep Bar, New Orleans Square
If you’ve never had a beignet, it’s basically fried dough freshly fried and covered in powdered sugar.  In the U.S., they’re signature to New Orleans hence being located in Disney’s New Orleans Square. You can also get these at the Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney, but the ones in the park are Mickey-shaped!
4. Dole Whip
Where to find it: Tiki Juice Bar, Adventureland
Years ago, the only places I knew that served Dole whip was at the Dole Plantation in Hawaii and Disneyland. Enjoying the soft-served pineapple treat was really a special occasion. You can now find it at some fro-yo spots, but getting it at Disneyland will always be a tradition. You can get the whip by itself or get it as a float with pineapple juice and the whip on top. Yum!
5. Churros
Where to find it: Churro carts scattered around the park
I don’t know what it is, but the churros here are really good. Is it just us? Let me know. They’re perfectly crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I sound like an ad, but they’re so good!
Hope this helps you find all of the best treats at Disneyland!
