I thought of asking this question today as I was thoroughly enjoying my lunch at Margaritaville in Universal Studios Hollywood's CityWalk... and remembering how it's been ages since I had a meal I truly enjoyed at Disneyland's Downtown Disney.
In general, I've been liking the food I've had at Universal better than the food at Disney lately. Yes, Universal wasn't trying as hard as Disney with its Lunar New Year food, but Disney's "soup dumplings without any soup in them" lowered even DCA's standard for bad value on pop-up food festivals. I'd rather a park do a few things right that attempt a bunch of stuff poorly.
As for standard fare, Three Broomsticks remains awesome as ever, even as Plaza Inn seems to be slipping. I'll dock Universal a point for backsliding at Krusty Burger, but the new milkshakes are better than any sweet Disney has added in an age.
Okay, this is all about California, and perhaps the story is different in Orlando. Let's hear your take — is Universal's food better than Disney's?Tweet
