Disneyland is the perfect place to be to catch all the favorites in one day- and park hopping is a cinch! You just walk across to the gates of California Adventure and your set!
I started out doing my My Perfect Disney Day by doing a ride plan, but thought the more I wrote I realized the star of the show is the food, so I figured why not share my Disneyland food highlights.
We like to start at Goofy’s Kitchen– so much fun to dance and play with Goofy and friends to get our day started, oh and breakfast too- can’t forget the most important meal of the day!
Then monorail it over into Tomorrowland, I love arriving in the park that way. After some rides in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland, we grab some popcorn in a bucket after some rides to keep our energy up a little longer.
Heading to Frontierland next for Big Thunder and Rancho del Zocalo for lunch- those cinnamon tortilla chips are a great dessert to get the kids to eat their meal.
Adventureland, New Orleans Square and Critter Country are our next stops. A MUST is Pooh’s Corner for some sweet snacks- I usually grab the chocolate covered Mickey pretzel or the chocolate-covered rice krispy treat. I’m also tempted to try the new Hungry Bear menu on our next trip- or else the Mickey beignets at Cafe Orleans.
We like to grab a Dole whip before the parade and then hop over to California Adventure.
After some California Adventure fun, we stop in to Storyteller’s Cafe for their dinner buffet on prime rib night. I’ve even sat by Geena Davis at this restaurant while waiting for our table. No characters this time of day.
Then out to the park through the special resort entrance for World of Color after more rides. On cold nights, we love the Paradise Pier chowder/soups in bread bowls- it does get cold for us the time of year we usually go.
