Hidden Tasty Treats at Disneyland: Disney Foodie Spotlight

UPDATED 2/2016

With so much of your time spent planning which attractions you should go on, which restaurants you should eat at, and which hotel you should stay in while visiting Disneyland, you may leave the snacking without a thought.  That’s okay, I’ve done it for you.

When I first wrote this, I hadn’t published very many blog posts.  But now, many of these hidden treats have been written up in their own posts!  Everything from the amazing cinnamon buns at Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe to Hungry Bear Restaurant‘s new delicious menu to Mint Juleps and Mickey beignets at the Mint Julep Bar.

I’ve also written about other tasty treats like the corn dogs at the Little Red Wagon, clam chowder in a bread bowl at Royal St. Veranda, Dole Whip at the Tiki Room, and Maurice’s Treats and their cheddar bagel twists.  I’ve even covered a couple of places away from the parks to get something sweet like Italian Ice at Joe’s and Dole Whip done differently at The Local Place.  So does that mean there are no other hidden treats waiting for us guests?  By all means, no way!

One of my favorites is Disney’s frozen lemonade.  And not the kind you get from the ice cream vendors, but the one that is more like a slushie.  You can get it with a shot of cherry or raspberry but I love the cherry so much, I never have tried the other.  There are a couple of places you can get this tasty treat.  One is over by It’s A Small World and the other is by the Mark Twain Riverboat Dock.  The slushie is just the right consistency and the flavor is just right, a great combination of cherry and tart lemon (although I have to admit to drinking it so fast that I then have to wait for more ice to melt).

Another great treat when you want just a bite to eat without a full meal would be Bengal Barbeque.  There you can get skewers of all kinds for under five dollars.  It’s been a while since I had one, but they’ve always been very flavorful.  The Banyan Beef Skewer is indeed hot and spicy, the Chieftain Chicken Skewer is served with a sweet and sour type of sauce, and the Safari Skewer is asparagus wrapped in bacon.  They even have a veggie skewer.  If hot and spicy isn’t your thing they also have a Bengal Beef Skewer in a sweet zulu sauce.  If you want something unique to drink, you can grab a Pomegranate Piranha Lemonade.  All a quick grab to satisfy you until your next meal.

There are always new things to try all the time at Disneyland.  From the sweet to the savory, you can find lots of different options.  You can find fresh fruit or the most decadent cakes.  There is just no end to what you’ll find.  But enjoy it while you can because you never know when they will be gone.  Some treats are seasonal.  Some just disappear like the Nestle Tollhouse Cookie Swirl Ice Cream they used to serve at the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor.  But don’t worry.  There are so many to choose from, you’ll likely find something great to try.

These are just a few of the delicious treats available to you at Disneyland!  Some of them you may know about already and some might be new to you, but they are all terrific.  Try some!
