What We Ate In Disneyland Paris

25 Oct 2017

We're interrupting our regular Halloween programming to bring you this special post. Yes, it's finally time for me to tell you all about the delicious food we ate whilst we were in Disneyland. Even though our trip was only less than 2 months ago, it feels like it's been an absolute lifetime. The pair of us are itching to get back and I'm massively jealous of everyone that is there for Halloween. I can only imagine how amazing it is!

Disclaimer: some of our meals are missing from this post because I'm a greedy pig and managed to eat them before I'd taken a photo. It's so difficult to remember to take pictures when you're presented with the most delicious food in the happiest place on Earth, believe it or not! But that won't stop this post from being chock-full of food porn. To kick off, of course, we had to have ice cream in the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlour and while in Disneyland, you've got to go for the three scoops. It's all Ben and Jerry's flavours (heaven), so I had Strawberry Cheesecake, Cookie Dough and Vanilla, and I think J had Cookie Dough, Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Vanilla. Obviously, this wasn't the first thing we ate as soon as we got there, but it makes for a pretty lovely header image.
In our hotel, the breakfast was a buffet, so each day, we tried to fill up as much as we could there to avoid spending too much in the parks. As you can see by that first image, J took this very seriously and went crazy on the cooked breakfast items each morning. It was all absolutely scrumptious, especially those circular hash browns and the bacon! And, of course, if you don't have a croissant in Paris, were you even there at all?! There was so much to choose from, so we were never disappointed. They even had cake! They also had the most delicious mint green tea and I'm yet to find something that matches up in the UK. Please, France, send me all of that amazing tea!
We'd read that Casey's Corner was an absolute must, so we made a point of going there one day to try the hot dogs, and I wasn't that impressed to be honest. J enjoyed his hot dog with veg chilli, but my plain hot dog wasn't great and was actually more expensive! How does that work, please? I would say that there are better places to eat, but if hot dogs are your thing, then go for it!
Our absolute favourite place that we ate was Fuente del Oro in Frontierland, a Mexican quick service restaurant that I discovered before we actually went on the trip. Both of us are massive on Mexican food, so we knew we wanted to go here and we weren't disappointed. At quick service restaurants, you pick from a set menu and I find that the price of each is super reasonable. We both opted for menu 2 at Fuente del Oro, which was a beef and vegetable enchilada, a choice of salad or rice, churros and a drink. I'll say, if you looked at the enchilada and though 'that looks tiny', it was actually much bigger, but I ate half of it before remembering that I wanted to take a photo. Everything about this meal was delicious and we actually wanted to go back on another day, but we made an effort to try out other places. J still says that the rice was incredible to this day! The rice. It's definitely one to try out.
We had no idea that there were next to no restaurants in the Studios Park, but we discovered Restaurant en Coulisse in the Front Lot, which is a huge restaurant surrounded by neon lights, you can't miss it. They offer a range of burgers, so I opted for menu 2, which was a chicken burger, salad or chips, a brookie and a drink. J, on the other hand, decided to go all out and opt for menu 4, which wasn't offered in many other places - a 25th anniversary Charolais beef burger, chips or salad, an apple-caramel crumble cup and a drink. He absolutely loved his burger, but I wasn't totally wowed by mine. It did satisfy my hunger, but it was a little bit bland and messy.
The desserts from this meal, however, were gorgeous. J kindly swapped his apple-caramel crumble cup for my brookie because I'm not a fan of walnuts. He wasn't too sad about swapping though, because he said the brookie was lovely and really different to anything he'd tried before. The crumble cup was insanely good and I kind of want another one while I sit here typing. It had a tangy cream cheese layer that worked so well with the caramel apple and the sweet topping (which had gold glitter on, can I just say). It was beautiful!
We bought these two things to have as snacks while we were on the Studios Tram Tour and both of them were yummy. The top is a doughnut that was released especially for the 25th anniversary, and it's decorated with blue icing and white stars. I'm not usually big on doughnuts that don't have a filling, but this one was so so good. J got a triple chocolate cookie which was chunky and soft - the way that cookies should be! Did we need to have a snack? Probably not, but when on holiday...
Finally, our second favourite place that we ate at was Colonel Hathi's Pizza Outpost. Again, this was another restaurant that we'd looked at online before our trip and decided that we wanted to try it out. I remember, I was really craving lasagna on the day we visited Colonel Hathi's, so I was ridiculously excited when my food arrived. We both got menu 2, which is a lasagna, salad or garlic bread, tiramisu and a drink. The lasagna was absolutely out of this world and completely satisfied my craving, and it was so lovely to mop up all the extra sauce with the garlic bread. The tiramisu was humongous and almost beat me, but I bloomin' love tiramisu so I didn't give in. I was one happy girl after having that meal!

As I said at the start, there are quite a few meals missing from this post but I managed to include my two most favourites. I know that neither of us ate very healthily whilst we were away, but I like to treat myself while on holiday, so I go about crazy with food. Just know that as soon as we came back, we were trying extra hard to be good!

What are some of your favourite Disneyland restaurants? I'd love to try some other places next time we go, so leave me some suggestions.

Whould you like to comment?

  1. I haven't been to Disney in so long (2009), but I just remember the food not being nice at all but the yours looks so much nicer than what I remembered. I do love a hotel buffet breakfast! Katie x

    1. Ahh things might have changed a little since then! If I'm honest, the last time I went before this trip was around 2011 and I don't remember the food being great, so they've definitely stepped up their game x

  2. I am drooling so much reading this post. All of the food looks so delicious but those desserts are something else. Excuse me while I book a trip to Disneyland just so I can eat all the food.
