There are some Disneyland eateries are nostalgic, full of Disney memories while others wrap guests in a symbiosis of theme while others are absolutely delicious. We’ve put together 15 of the top Disneyland restaurants, based on their food, ambience and overall ambience, to help you plan your next Disney vacation.
Make reservations immediately because certain table-service restaurants listed may be booked up weeks in advance at the peak season. And in the event that you do not see any open, you can search for reservations through the Disneyland app as you get closer to your date. (Plans alter and people often make cancellations to avoid costs, so I’ve secured many last-minute reservations just by making sure to check).
