The Single Best Thing To Eat In Disneyland

Baked Potato Soup - YUM!

At work I am forever asked for recommendations about what to eat or where to dine at Disneyland. There are some good choices available and unfortunately also some bad. After years of trial and error, I'm here to tell you that the single best food item you get put in your mouth at Disneyland is the Baked Potato Soup served by the Carnation Cafe.

This isn't a soup for the diet conscious. It is creamy, rich, and decadent. Artery clogging begins with the first bite and the sinful pleasure continues right to the bottom of the bowl.

Mrs. DisneylandTraveler and I are in the process of covering what Disneyland dinning spots we'd like to visit when we make our next trip in November. There's a lot of maybe's and probably's in our deliberations. One thing we are in compete agreement is a stop at the Carnation Cafe for a bowl of soup (and some undetermined entree). It's one of our Disneyland traditions.

PS..... a couple of near misses for the top spot of best Disneyland food items - the fried chicken served by the Plaza Inn, the previously mentioned Lobster Roll from the Harbour Galley, and of course no trip to Disneyland would be complete without a Dole pineapple whip (or float).


  1. My husband and I are headed for Disneyland the beginning of December-our 1st time ever with the Christmas theme! Any suggestions for "must eat" during the Christmas Holidays at Disney?

    1. Have the fried chicken at the Plaza Inn. Not only is the chicken fabulous, the inside of the restaurant has lovely Christmas decorations. Kind of old fashioned but very nice. Of course, if you want to go all out, try the Napa Rose at the Grand Californian or the Carthay Circle Restaurant in DCA. These will set you back a little bit with the cost but memorable.

    2. Thank you! We can't wait to try your suggestions!
