Here are the best quick-service food items and restaurants worth the hype at Disneyland—to keep you fed throughout the rides, lines and chaos of it all at the happiest place on Earth.

Imagine being at Disneyland, walking down Main Street with the instrumental song from the movie “Up” in the background, catching a glimpse of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Disneyland is known for giving guests a magical experience, and that includes the food. Where can one find affordable but tasty cuisine in the happiest place on Earth? To get the best bang for your buck, there are plenty of quick-service restaurants throughout the park to keep you fed all day long while you enjoy your perfect day. Plus, with mobile order being available, you skip the lines! Here are the five best options for your three meals of the day and must-have desserts at Disneyland.


Cold Brew Black Caf – $6.79 (Sabrina Mercado)

Make your way into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and enter the planet of Batuu to try a coffee that is truly out of this world. Mobile order the Cold Brew Black Caf at the Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo and sit outside to get a view of the Millennium Falcon. It is a cold brew coffee topped with sweet cream cheese and a crunch of cocoa puffs cereal. The coffee is strong but perfectly balanced when mixed with the cream on top for a lightly sweet and filling drink.

Price: $6.79


The Jolly Holiday Combo – $13.99 (Sabrina Mercado)

After riding Pirates of the Caribbean, take a break on Main Street and visit Jolly Holiday. If you are looking for a filling yet light lunch, order the Jolly Holiday Combo. The grilled cheese consists of two slices of crispy toast with a thick layer of melty cheddar cheese oozing out of the middle. It is served with warm tomato basil soup—perfect for dipping.

Price: $13.99



The Dole Whip, a legendary frozen treat, is a must for a hot summer day. It is a creamy frozen treat, a pineapple-flavored soft serve. In the mood for a spicy kick? Try ordering the Chile-Mango Dole Whip, topped with chunks of pineapple, jicama, cucumber and mango—all in that sweet and spicy oh-so-good chamoy sauce and sprinkled with Tajín (chile-lime seasoning). Mobile order from the Tiki Juice Bar by Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room to enjoy your treat by the tropical plants, music and waterfall to feel like you are in paradise.  

Price: $6.49 (Regular) or $7.99 (Chile-Mango)


Tostada Salad with Chicken – $13.49 (Sabrina Mercado)

After hopping off Big Thunder Mountain and getting ready for the end of your Disney day, sit down and relax at Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante in Adventureland.

The tostada salad is chicken or beef with chopped up lettuce, refried beans, Mexican rice, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, cilantro lime vinaigrette and cheese on top—all served in a crispy tortilla shell bowl. 

Price: $13.49


Churro – $5.50 (Sabrina Mercado)

After a long and fun-filled day, end your night with a classic Disney treat. The churro is long enough to share between two, satisfying that need for a sweet treat after dinner. It is warm and chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside, with tons of cinnamon sugar sprinkled on it. Find a churro cart located next to the Sleeping Beauty Castle to enjoy your treat with a magical view.
