The Ultimate, All-Day Disneyland Feast

April 18, 2016, 10:00 AM · What's the best way to spend your day eating at Disneyland?

One of the many perks of having an annual pass to a theme park is getting to know its restaurants. Most fans with an insider's advice can manage to get to all the top attractions in a park on a single visit. But for parks that do food well, it's pretty much impossible to eat all the good stuff in one go. That's where the annual pass comes in. With repeated visits, you can try a wider variety of restaurants that even the hungriest visitor can get to in one day, eventually learning which ones really are the best of the best.

Of course, advice from other visitors helps, too. That's why we have reader ratings and review for restaurants at the world's most popular theme parks, to help you decide where to eat on your next visit. But everyone is different. What the crowds likes best might not be to your taste. Ultimately, you've got to try it all if you want to know what's really going to end up being your favorite.

For my Orange County Register column this week, I offered my picks for the ideal all-day Disneyland feast. These are my picks for the best breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack at the park — but I think that many of you might agree with these choices, based upon your collective ratings of the food at Disneyland.

Still, I'd love to read your individual picks, too. Tell us your favorite meals at Disneyland, in the comments. And for my column next week, I'm doing the same thing for Disney California Adventure, so please feel welcome to share your picks for that park, as well.

April 18, 2016 at 2:28 PM · It was Bengal BBQ vs. the Corn Dog for the savory snack, and I thought the corn dog was more filling, and thus a better value. Plus, I'm leaning toward putting the DCA skewers on my list for next week.

There have been several times when friends want something delicious and decadent, but I’ve wanted to save up for Plaza Inn fried chicken dinner. If you’ve never had a Kid’s Power Pack, here’s what comes in it – Apple slices, baby carrots, yogurt smoothie, a bag of whole-grain fish crackers, small banana, small bottle of water or milk all for $5.99. It’s a healthy alternative to churros and corn dogs.

April 19, 2016 at 6:59 AM · I find it amazing that half of all articles on Disney-themed blogs are about food! There are always a lot of comments in the articles, so I must be in the minority.

April 19, 2016 at 6:02 PM · Probably the only thing I would change is the Dole Whip. I'd go for Mickey beignets instead.
April 24, 2016 at 6:49 PM · I can't believe the fried chicken at the Plaza Inn is $17.50 now! I remember when it was $12, and it doesn't seem that long ago! Maybe 5-7 years?
