Favorite Restaurants in Disneyland


Disneyland has a wide variety of restaurant options! We’ve tried them all & while majority are great, we definitely have our favorites! We’ve listed our top picks below (these are all great spots for kids)!

QUICK-SERVICE RESTAURANTS (plenty of seating at these spots):

  • Rancho del Zacolo in Frontierland (food pictured is from this spot, enchiladas, chicken tostada & kids chicken taco) – mexican food – open for breakfast, lunch & dinner – covered outdoor seating only, but there is covered patio seating if it rains or you need shade. We love the seating area because kids can watch the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad train go by!
  • Red Rockett’s Pizza Port in Tomorrowland – pizza, salad, pasta – indoor & outdoor seating – open for lunch & dinner
  • Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe on Main Street  – sandwiches, salads, soup – outdoor seating only
