As a frequent visitor to the parks, I’ve found these are the places with the best food at Disneyland Resort when traveling with kids. The meals are generally easy to eat and quick to grab. I also aim for options with a lot of seating or that have food that easy to walk with between rides. There are also a few special experiences that are fun to do no matter your age!

Burgers, Sandwiches and Dogs — Classic Kids’ Favorites

While there are plenty of places to pick up a hamburger (or cheeseburger, if you please), sandwiches and hot dogs in DLR, these four really hit the spot for everyone from kids to grandparents! Choose from classic beef patty meals or new-age vegetarian options at several of these locales.

It is also conveniently located along Pixar Pier, so getting from the cart into a line to finish a quick meal with be easy. Kids will enjoy not having to stop for food and sit down when they are excited and raring to go on the next ride. Rides nearby include Toy Story Midway Mania!, the Pixar Pal-A-Round and the Incredicoaster. If they’re not ready for rides, they can always opt to play at the carnival-style booth of Games of Pixar Pier!

Why Parents and Adults Will Love It

Angry Dogs is quick, cheap and convenient for a dining establishment in the parks. Plus, the spicy dog option gives adults an opportunity to explore a twist on a classic food usually made with kids in mind. Additionally, the location is central in DCA for Pixar Pier, making access to rides and food convenient.

Hungry Bear Restaurant

Located in Critter Country (past Splash Mountain) in Disneyland Park, the Hungry Bear Restaurant offers an array of treats from burgers to fried fish sandwiches to fried foods in general. It also features a Vegan Specialty Burger, so there are options for every palate.

There are plenty of options for a wholesome meal to keep little ones energized all day. Plus, there are delicious desserts to share with the whole family.

Kids will also get excited over the views on the river. Watch Davy Crockett canoes paddle by or wave to the passengers aboard the big boats making their way around the corner!

Why Parents and Adults Will Love It

The Hungry Bear Restaurant has a lot of seating for a quick-service establishment in Disneyland. While it does get crowded, especially during peak season, you can find tables pretty quickly either upstairs or downstairs or even just outside of the restaurant area. 

More importantly, if you have at least two adults in the party, you can have one order and pick up food without the kids while the other takes them to find seating. This often makes the process of setting up the meal easier as kids will be more entertained at a table than standing in (yet another) line.

Adults will also enjoy the variety of flavors at the dining establishment. For those who recall it before the major renovation in the early 2000s, the Hungry Bear Restaurant has come to feature specialty dishes. Their menu includes a spicy chicken sandwich, a fish sandwich, a vegan burger and a BBQ chicken salad in addition to classic burgers. Plus, their desserts have expanded to include delightful funnel cakes! Check out the full menu here. 

Red Rose Taverne

The Red Rose Taverne, formerly Pinocchio Village Haus Restaurant, is an updated quick-service establishment furnished by Gaston. Antlers and scenes of a little provincial town can be seen in nearly every nook and cranny of the restaurant, making you feel as if you were in France with the motley crew!

Key Features

  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner options
  • Located in Disneyland Park at Fantasyland; close to Frontierland (and, soon, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge) via the pass behind Big Thunder Mountain

As “Be Our Guest” plays in the background, along with several other classics and their renditions, kids will love to point out paintings of their favorite characters and all of the elements that remind them of a classic (and recently remade) film. From the decor to the general atmosphere of being in a taverne, there is much to delight them as they finish some of the best kids’ rides in the world at Fantasyland. Plus, the food is truly delicious.

While there is a complete menu for both breakfast and lunch/dinner, the kid-friendly options are great for little ones. Chip’s Dishes feature cheese pizza, a smaller hamburger option, a carved turkey sandwich, a Power Pack (Disney Check Meal) and even a toddler-size mac ‘n’ cheese. All of those favorites in one place makes for an ideal meal for the whole crew!

Moreover, kids will go crazy for the desserts available at Red Rose Taverne. Though listed as a beverage, Gaston’s Famous Brew is a delightfully sweet punch featuring apple, mango and grapefruit juices with a fun foam topping that makes the perfect end to a meal. You can even get it in a souvenir mug! Plus, the Grey Stuff Gâteau will surprise them in a yummy way. While it’s grey exterior looks funny, the red velvet cake and raspberry filling will make them say, “it is delicious!” just like Lumiere.

The food. Honestly, the food at the Red Rose Taverne is the main reason for a stop. Though the breakfast options are relatively standard, the rest of the menu for lunch and dinner features unique meals you won’t get anywhere else in the park. 

Starting with the vegetarian option, you have a Samosa Sandwich featuring a cauliflower, potatoes and peas patty. It’s topped with fried green beans, lettuce, a tomato compote and vegan curry mayonnaise. All of that on a toasted onion roll with a side of garlic fries makes for a great treat. Of note, it’s not very spicy; it is, however, very flavorful like a samosa.

For the carnivores, there are French-inspired and traditional American options. Try the beef poutine for a flavorful stew or one of the many burger options for twists on the classic. No matter what you choose, be sure to try the Pommes Frites — crispy thin fries topped with a garlic mixture and parmesan.

For the healthy conscious, there are also salad options. You can have chopped salad with or without chicken. Note that both menu listings feature baco, egg, apple slices and apple vinaigrette. In the end, there is truly a choice for everyone!

Smokejumpers Grill

Located just off Buena Vista Street as you head toward Grizzly Peak, you’ll find Smokejumpers Grill in DCA. Their food is as hot as the namesake of the establishment, offering a variety of sandwiches and burgers, plus delicious sides!

Key Features

  • Lunch and dinner meal options
  • Additional toppings bar for burgers including lettuce, tomatoes, onion slices, peppercinis, pickles and sauces

Not only is it is close to the entrance and easy to get to when they’re hungry, but the food options are delicious. Little ones can pick from a chicken skewer, plain hamburger, grilled cheese or chicken tenders. Toddlers also have the option of mac ‘n’ cheese. Plus, with the “unlimited” toppings bar, they can pick their favorite sauces to top of the meal!

Beyond the food, Smokejumpers Grill features cool decor. If your little one likes planes or the mountains or anything nature, this is the perfect place to look at fun photos and learn a little about California’s history with wildfires. Kids will enjoy eating inside if they like to look at fun decor. If they like being in the sun or just outside in general, they will also have that seating option, making it a win-win all around!

Why Parents and Adults Will Love It

The complete menu at Smokejumpers Grill has something for everyone. From classic hamburger options to BBQ-infused dishes, meat-lovers and vegetarians alike can enjoy the grill. Plus, because of the quick-service nature of the restaurant, large parties can break apart the responsibilities of getting food and finding seats, shortening the overall wait time for the party.

Meat-lovers can enjoy everything from classic beef patties to chicken sandwiches to hearty meat chili. You can even get chili cheese fries as a side or starter for the whole table! 

Vegetarians, on the other hand, have a great option of BBQ jackfruit. Jackfruit is the latest and greatest protein-packed veggie option that has the consistency of pulled pork and takes on the taste of whatever seasoning you add. This sandwich is truly delightful and will make even the most skeptical drool over it.

If you prefer to add more vegetables to you meal to make it a bit “healthier,” go for the toppings bar. I have made a full-on salad with dressing on several trips (no Cast Member has said I couldn’t) in lieu of eating a pile of fries. Note that there are no prepped salad options.

Dinner and a Show

Let’s begin this section with a great restaurant called The Golden Horseshoe.

The Golden Horseshoe

Nestled in the heart of Frontierland, Disneyland, The Golden Horseshoe is a testament to the 1955 opening of Disneyland. Featuring crazy shows and delicious food, your whole family will enjoy the antics of the saloon-style theater!

Whether you catch a show or not, kids will love the french fries and chicken tenders. While there is a Power Pack option and a kids’ chicken slider meal, the appeal of comfort food is nearly irresistible no matter how young you are! Plus, there is a large variety of ice cream and sundaes that kids are likely to beg for at least once. The sizes are great for sharing.

If you do decide to make it a dinner and show event, be sure to check the showtimes on either the Disneyland App or on the front door of the establishment. The Golden Horseshoe has had running shoes since Walt opened the park. It was actually a favorite of his, and the quirky sense of humor brought to the stage today by The Laughing Stock Co. will have your kids giggling right along. 

Humor at these shows is certainly kid-oriented, but there are adult-level jokes (just like in every Disney movie) that are G-rated and hilarious!

Why Parents and Adults Will Love It

There is great seating, easy access to food, a fun show and delicious meal options. It’s literally a one-stop-shop that takes eating at Disneyland to a new level of fun. While there may be a line for the food, you can let your little ones explore the Victorian-style theater (with adult supervision) while you wait and order.

Moreover, the adult food options are amazing given the simple nature of the establishment. Pick from fried classics or “chili mac” (vegetarian option available) or a salad. It’s a great variety that every member of the group can enjoy. For the full menu, click here.

Additionally, if you are interested in a sit-down restaurant, there are a lot of options to keep your little ones entertained.

Not only will they get to meet an array of their favorite Disney characters, but kids will also love the Mickey-shaped food and other delicious treats that come with these breakfasts. With choices from waffles and pancakes to bacon and eggs, there is something for every kiddo (picky eaters, included!) at the buffets and family-style meals.

Characters do vary and are subject to change at these opportunities. However, there is a general consensus among top-rated Disney blogs, like Mickey Visit, that the titles of the Character Dining experiences indicate the characters who are likely to come for a visit. So, for the Disney Princess Breakfast, you’ll likely encounter Cinderella, Belle, Ariel, Snow White and the like. 

For Mickey’s friends’ breakfasts (Minnie at Plaza Inn, Donald at PCH Grill, Morning Giggles with Goofy, and Mickey’s Tales at Storytellers), you will most likely meet the whole crew plus other classics like Chip ‘n’ Dale and Pluto. You may even get more modern friends joining you like Stitch at PCH Grill and Peter Pan at Plaza Inn. It will depend on the day, so be sure your little on is prepped!

Another big perk is getting one-on-one photos with characters without a line. Kids will love getting the more individualized attention plus an autograph from their favorite Disney friends!

Why Adults Will Love It

The dining experience is all-inclusive. Not only does everyone in the party get delicious food and beverages, but they also get a chance to encounter characters. This means fewer lines for character photos in the park as well as more personalized encounters for you to take as many photos of as you wish.

Plus, the food is delicious for everyone. While there are kid-oriented plates, there are even more adult options!
