Disneyland has always been a source of happiness for me. I visited the park multiple times from when I was about two all the way through high school, but now that it's around 15 minutes away from where I live and go to school I practically go any time I'm free. Although riding the rides and taking pictures with characters is extremely fun, I love to eat all the delicious food the park has to offer. So I've decided to make things easy for you if you decide to visit the happiest place on earth by making a food guide for you all!

The best of the Mickey Mouse shaped food, at least in my personal opinion. Besides the fact that it's a cute shape, the waffle itself is pretty delicious. If you're only at the park once and want to take all those cute instagrams of 'Disney' related things, get the waffle. Find it at the Carnation Cafe on main street! (Not into waffles? Don't worry there's a pancake version at the River Bell Terrace in New Orleans Square.)

Feeling something a little bit sweeter? Well then another breakfast option for you is the Mickey Mouse Beignets! What's more sweet than this character shaped piece of fried dough completely covered in powdered sugar? Yes, they can also technically be a dessert, but in my mind these babies are exactly the same as a powdered donut. You can buy some for yourself at the French Market Restaurant in New Orleans Square, and if you happen to be around in the Fall/Winter there may be some seasonal beignets flavors like pumpkin spice.
It doesn't look like much, but this beef stew bread bowl from the French Market is seriously amazing. I get it practically every time I'm at Disneyland for lunch because it's just that good. The meat is flavorful, the vegetables are delicious and plentiful, and really you just can't go wrong with this dish. Plus you get to eat the sourdough bread that it comes in. (the best part!)
Fried Chicken Dinner

If you know me at all, you know how much I love chicken. (seriously, I will eat chicken for every meal, people have made jokes that I am slowly turning into a chicken) Despite my extreme love of chicken, fried chicken has never been my favorite because it's always difficult for me to get around the bones and it just takes too much effort to eat. Disneyland fried chicken, however, is a flavorful masterpiece that is worth the effort. It's literally so good that I always walk away from my meal with a smile and a full belly. Insider Tip: If you aren't big on mashed potatoes or green beans, ask to have double of one side. I recommend getting this for dinner since it's a pretty big portion, find it at the Plaza Inn right off main street!

A great snack for waiting in lines, the Mickey Pretzals (or my personal favorite, but not as cute, the cream cheese filled pretzals on the right) are a classic Disneyland snack. I may love my churros, but these pretzals are where it's at.
I know there are so many other great foods that I left off of this list, so let me know your favorites below!
