There’s nothing quite like a trip to Disneyland! I love the magical feeling you get once you walk through the turnstile and head towards main street. We have our favorite attractions, our favorite shops and our favorite Disney food!! Treats are probably one of the things I get most excited about when we take our Disney vacations. We are sharing over 20 best Disneyland snacks that you can buy at Disneyland and California Adventure. There’s something for everyone, whether you love your treats sweet, salty or Mickey shaped.
Many of the snacks we feature can be purchased with Mobile Ordering. You simply open the Disney app, click “Order Food” and select the location, time and items you want to purchase.
If you are visiting Disneyland during a busy time (or anytime really), I highly recommend using Mobile Ordering. Now, on to the fun stuff…the best Disneyland snacks you can get in the parks! I’d love to hear about your favorite Disney snacks too, let us know your faves or if there is anything you think we’ve missed. I’m always up for a new Disney snack!
Choco Smash Candy Bar – This new candy bar can be found at Avenger’s Campus at Pym’s Test Kitchen. The Choco Smash Candy Bar is made with Dark Chocolate, Peanuts, Caramel, Nougat and Chocolate Brownie. And it’s divine!! Definitely big enough (and rich enough) to be shared.
Dole Whip – One of our favorite snacks is the Dole Whip and I am super excited that you can now get the pineapple Dole Whip swirled with flavors like Raspberry and Orange. The Pineapple Raspberry Swirl is my new fave! You will find these new flavors just down from the regular Tiki Juice Bar at the Tropical Hideaway.
Loaded Dole Whip – This crazy version of the Dole Whip can also be found at the Tropical Hideaway and it is so good! I finally tried it for the first time recently and I think it may be my new “go-to” when I visit Disneyland. It has pineapple/orange swirl (you can choose whatever flavors you want though) then it’s loaded with tropical fruits, shredded coconut, crystallized Hibiscus and Pocky sticks. (This unfortunately is no longer being served, I’ve left it on the list because they have different versions of the loaded Dole Whip on the menu that you should check for while you are there)
Matterhorn Macaroon – This classic treat is basically a big coconut macaroon that is topped with melted white chocolate and sugar sprinkles. It’s a fun representation of the iconic Disneyland Matterhorn attraction and can be found at the Jolly Holiday bakery.
Mickey Pretzel – When you want a savory snack, look no further than the classic Mickey Pretzel. We love to add the cheese dip. They also have cinnamon and sugar Mickey pretzels too. You will find Pretzel carts throughout the parks.
Asada Fries – We’re giving two big thumbs up for the Asada Fries at Award Wieners in DCA, especially if you like your food a little spicy! These fries are topped with marinated Carne Asada, cheddar cheese, cilantro, onions, Salsa de Arbol and Guacamole! Yum!
Corn Dog – Nobody makes a corn dog quite like Disneyland! You’ll find the Little Red Wagon selling corn dogs on the end of main street on the right hand side just before you get to the Plaza Inn. In California Adventure you’ll find the corn dogs sold at the Corn Dog Castle.
Strawberry Hand Pie – This is a fairly new addition at Jolly Holiday and I hope it sticks around, it’s a good one! It’s pretty much a glorified Pop-Tart, emphasis on the word glorified, because it’s really good. The crust is flaky and butter and the filling is just right. I recommend giving this one a try!
Hand-Dipped Ice Cream Bars – These hand-dipped ice cream bars are divine! You can choose your flavor of ice cream, chocolate coating and toppings. My personal favorite is Raspberry Sorbet, with Milk Chocolate and Popping Pearls (basically Pop Rocks). Find these at Clarabelle’s at the end of Buena Vista Street in California Adventure.
Mickey Beignets – These unique Disneyland snacks are golden fried dough tossed in powdered sugar. So yummy! You can also order Mickey Beignets from the table service restaurant Cafe Orleans where they also come with dipping sauce and they are divine! If you do head to Cafe Orleans I highly recommend the Monte Cristo sandwich (I also recommend sharing it).
Soft-Serve Cones – You have to love a classic ice cream cone on a hot day. My favorite is the chocolate and vanilla twist. These cones can be found at the Cozy Cone Motel. If it’s a busy day, this line can get kind of long, there is usually only one cast member working the booth.
Turkey Leg – These huge cured, smoky Turkey legs can be found at several stands throughout the park and at Edelweiss Snacks in Disneyland and Poultry Palace at California Adventure.
Pretzel Bites with Cheesy Sauce – The Pretzel Bites are a kid fave! You’ll find them at the Cozy Cone Motel. They come with a cheesy dipping sauce.
Chili Cone Queso – Another Cozy Cone snack that is one of our family’s favorites is the Chili Cone Queso. It has Beef Chili, Cheddar Cheese and Corn Chips served in a Bread Cone. Yummy!
Jack Jack Cookie Num Num – These warm, gooey, chocolate chip cookies are not to be missed. They are so thick and gooey you’ll need to eat it with a fork. You will find this cookie stand at the exit of the Incredicoaster on the Pixar Pier.
Mickey Caramel Apple – The Mickey Caramel Apples have always been a favorite. I love that these are treats you can take home with you too. Just let the cast member know you are traveling and they will box it up for you. You can find these cute treats at the candy shops in both parks at at Marceline’s in Downtown Disney.
Pixar Pier Frosty Parfait – All the treats at Adorable Snowman Frosty Treats are great but we really like the Pixar Pier Frosty Parfait. It’s Lemon Soft-serve with Blue Raspberry Swirl. The tartness of the lemon and sweetness of the blue raspberry is the perfect combination. This treat is large and sweet enough to share. The line here can get extremely long on super hot days.
Mickey Ice Cream Bar – The classic kid treat is the Mickey Ice Cream Bar. Vanilla ice cream with chocolate coating. These ice cream bars are sure to make anyone smile.
Popcorn – Popcorn is one of our favorite treats for when we are waiting in line for an attraction. You don’t have to worry about it melting and it’s super easy to share. You’ll find popcorn stands all over the Parks.
Chieftain Chicken Skewer – The Chieftain Chicken Skewer is one of my favorite Disneyland snacks when I need something small (mainly so I can do more snacking). This skewer has grilled chicken covered in a sweet, slightly spicy chili sauce. While here I also recommend trying the Safari Skewer which is bacon-wrapped Asparagus. Both of these treats are found at the Bengal Barbecue in Adventureland.
Churros – Churros are a must when you visit Disneyland. You can stick to the classic cinnamon and sugar Churros or try one of the many different flavored churros that Disneyland offers. They always come out with seasonal varieties and they can really get creative. Churros stands can be found throughout the Parks.
Macarons – Stop by Jolly Holiday bakery for huge Macarons. The flavor options will vary with the different seasons and celebrations, but one of my favorites from the past has been the Rose Gold Macaron. These aren’t tiny macarons, these are big and can easily be shared. They are on the sweet side, so if you aren’t a fan of sweet, you may want to skip this one.
Churros Toffee – This is a new treat for us. The Churros Toffee is toffee covered with cinnamon and sugar just like you would find on a churros. This one is super sweet and great to share. It also travels well, so you can enjoy some Disney goodness at home. We found the Churros Toffee at Bing Bongs Sweet Shop.
Chocolate Covered Pineapple – Stop by any of the locations selling candy and treats and pick yourself up a Chocolate Covered Pineapple Skewer. These are so good. The pineapple has always been fresh and flavorful and in my opinion chocolate goes with just about anything, but it’s really good with pineapple.
Giant Dill Pickle – Disneyland has been selling pickles for a very long time. The pickles are a great snack if you need a break from all the sweets. They are tasty and I love the fact that they are chilled on ice, so they are cool and crisp. The pickles are one of my son’s favorite snacks.
Corn on the Cob – The corn on the cob is another great option. You can choose buttered corn or Chili-Lime. You’ll find the corn at Edelweiss snacks at Disneyland at the Poultry Palace in California Adventure.
Mickey Sourdough Bread – Swing by Pacific Wharf Cafe to pick up a big Mickey Sourdough Bread. You will find the loaves & shapes of bread being sold just outside the cafe. We bought this treat on our most recent trip to Disneyland. I will admit we always passed by this treat because I thought it was going to be super expensive, but it was reasonably priced and it was something our whole family could snack on. I’m a fan! If you plan ahead of time you can pack in some fruit and cheese and you have yourself lunch with the bread. For a free treat, head inside for the bakery tour and they will give you a small sample slice of sourdough bread.
Mickey & Minnie Donuts – These cute donuts can be found outside of the parks! Get these at the GCH Craftsman Grill at the Grand Californian Hotel. They come in either Mickey or Minnie and they are as tasty as they are cute.
If you are planning a trip to Disneyland to try out some Disneyland snacks, I highly recommend checking the prices on package deals from Get Away Today, they always offer some of the lowest prices. You can either purchase a hotel and ticket package or buy your park tickets individually from Get Away Today. If you purchase a package, use the code Thriving10 at checkout to save an additional $10 off their low rates.
