The Best Disneyland Snacks You Have to Try in 2023

I am a Disney snack lover and am always on the hunt for the best Disneyland snacks and the best Disney World snacks. While Walt Disney World will always be my first love, Disneyland offers me snacks I can’t find on the east coast. These are the best Disneyland snacks you can only find in Disneyland, so make sure you try them when you visit the Happiest Place on Earth!

Best Disneyland Snacks You Have to Try

Disneyland food is just better than Disney World. I said it. There’s no comparison. These are your must-try classic Disneyland snacks that often make people’s ‘best of Disney’ snack lists. Some are simply the most delicious treats ever, while others are a novelty that’s worth your Disney dollars. Eating around the parks is one of my favorite activities.

Disneyland Churro

Yes, they have churros in Walt Disney World. And no, they’re not the same. I can’t explain it, but the churros in Disneyland are so much better. Between me and my 5 girls, we stop by the churro carts daily. They seem more fresh and melt in your mouth at Disneyland. Also it’s the perfect treat to eat while watching a parade.

One of the best Disneyland snacks is a Disneyland churro which you can't get at Disney World!

Raspberry Rose Macaron

This one is my favorite. MY FAVORITE. I love macarons (one o)! A macaron is a French sweet meringue-based confection. I’ve never been a huge fan of raspberries though.

All the cast members at Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe in Disneyland Park told me I had to try it. All of them. So I couldn’t be rude, and I tried it. It was ah-mazing. And Mickey-shaped! The macarons were flaky and soft, the raspberries added a nice texture and balanced out the rose cream in the middle.

I called my friend after I ate it and told her how incredible it was. Another friend texted me to tell me how much she loved it after she tried it on my recommendation.

Matterhorn Macaroon

Now it’s time for the macaroon (double o). Don’t confuse the two, because you’ll be sad if you’re expecting one and get the other. A macaroon is made with coconut, like this beauty.

The Matterhorn Macaroon is also dipped in white chocolate to make it even more drool-worthy and remind us of the snow covered attraction, The Matterhorn Bobsleds. I don’t know why I waited so long to try this one, because I’ve wanted to try it ever since I saw pictures online.

I also picked this up at the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe. If you’re not a coconut fan though, I’d skip this one.

Chili Cone Queso

Aaah, Cars Land. My favorite place in Disney California Adventure Park. The whole area is fun, puts you right in the movie and is filled with yummy places to eat. My favorite quick place to grab a bite is the Cozy Cone Motel. There are different cones set up where you can find different snacks like churros, ice cream, pretzel bites, and flavored popcorn.

However, the cone to beat is Cone #3 and the Chili Cone Queso. It’s beef chili, cheddar cheese and corn chips served in a bread cone. You can also get vegetarian chili. When my husband first wanted to try this, I turned my nose up at him, but then I had a few bites and ordered my own. Plus I can eat it while I walk, so more ride time!

They also have different options if mac and cheese in a cone is more your thing.

Mickey Beignet

Fried dough and powdered sugar is always a winner, but making it into a Mickey head shape is extra points. Bonus for the nonalcoholic Mint Julep being at the same stand. 

You can get both at the Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square in Disneyland Park. You can also find Mickey beignets at Café Orléans.

Disney World has stepped up its game and you can now get Mickey Beignets at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter. You can even find different flavors of beignets there, but none yet found in theme parks at Disney World.

Corn Dog at The Little Red Wagon

The Corn Dogs at The Little Red Wagon are delicious! It’s not your typical frozen grocery store corn dog. They are battered, fried and great to eat on the go when you don’t have a lot of time to sit down. You can find The Little Red Wagon as you walk down Main Street, USA on the right side as you walk towards Sleeping Beauty Castle. 

And if you’re at Disney California Adventure, stop by Corn Dog Castle next to Goofy’s Sky School. 

You can find something similar at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, but it’s not the same.

Churro Toffee

I don’t really think Churro Toffee tastes like a churro, but it is really delicious! The toffee isn’t super hard, so it shouldn’t break a tooth, and it’s covered in a cinnamon sugar coating. The whole combo just works, trust me. The best thing is you can find it at Disneyland (Candy Palace), Disney California Adventure (Trolley Treats), and Downtown Disney (Marceline’s Confectionary). A little pricey at $7.50-ish a square, it’s worth a try!

[…] This dessert is a chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse and coffee custard. I really like chocolate, but the cake was really dry, and there was nothing special about the chocolate flavor. Renee said the coffee must be at the bottom, because she didn’t taste any. If you want a really yummy chocolate dessert, there are plenty incredible Disneyland snacks. […]
