Disneyland introduces a late night menu in Tomorrowland

July 25, 2017, 4:50 PM · One of the top complaints that visitors make about theme parks is that restaurants close too early. With fans ready to go from rope drop to park close, customers want food available to help them refuel throughout the day. Yet many parks do the math and decide to close their kitchens hours before their rides close, since they can't sell enough meals to justify cooking throughout the park's operating hours.

If you've stayed at a hotel that offers room service or been on a cruise recently, you might have noticed that those institutions have found a work-around to serve hungry guests by offering limited menus for late-night dining. Now, the Disneyland Resort is applying that concept to theme parks, introducing a late-night menu at the Galactic Grill in Disneyland's Tomorrowland.

The former Tomorrowland Terrace got its new name as part of the "Season of the Force" Star Wars overlay for the land that concluded at the beginning of this summer. But as the park tweaked the menu for the popular counter-service restaurant after Season of the Force, it has also added a third menu — a limited late-night option serving from 9pm to park close, following the breakfast and lunch/dinner menus served earlier in the day.

The late-night menu features what probably would be called "bar bites" if there were any alcohol served to the public at the park: a min double-patty cheeseburger slider, chicken nuggets with chili or Buffalo sauce and coleslaw, a quesadilla, loaded tater tots, and French toast dippers. Prices range from $7.49-8.49.

What do you think? Will the menu sell to fans who want something more substantial than what they can find at a popcorn stand or food cart? If we've learned anything from this business, it's that if someone finds success with an idea, everyone will rush to copy it.

Keep suggesting new items.

Mobile ordering will soon follow allowing us to order ahead
From other restaurants in the park.
