15 NEW Reasons Why Disneyland’s Restaurants Are Just Plain BETTER

By admin Jan 15, 2024

It’s an age-old argument: Disneyland vs. Disney World.

Pumpkin Spice Churro

Now, those who have been to both parks have arguments on why their favorite is the best. However, it’s hard NOT to be biased towards Disneyland just because it’s the CLASSIC and original park where Walt strolled down Main Street, U.S.A. Hey, his apartment is still there! But there’s something even MORE important that makes us choose Disneyland over Disney World, and that is THE FOOD. Yep, we said it. Disneyland food > Disney World food.

Sure, we could go on and on about those Corn Dogs from the Little Red Wagon for DAYS. We could talk for WEEKS about churros (and churro toffee). But there are now 15 MORE reasons why Disneyland beats Disney World at the food game. That’s because Disneyland just added 15 NEW menu items to its parks!

Churro Toffee in Disneyland

See? That’s something we don’t see often in Disney World. Yes, Disney World often adds a lot of snacks, but they’re usually seasonal snacks. Disneyland just added a ton of snacks JUST BECAUSE. This happens ALL the time, too. So let’s take a look at all these delicious treats that are now available in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
