I always joke that I go to Disneyland exclusively for the corn dogs – and to be super honest, that’s not far off from the truth. I love Disneyland for a lot of reasons (hello – any Walt fan does), but the great restaurants near the top of the list. We’re channeling our best David Letterman today, to share our favorite picks, so you can have the best time possible expanding your waistline on your trip.

-Cafe Orleans
The outdoor patio here is SO relaxing, and the pommes frites are some of my favorite fries in the world. We think this is the perfect lunch spot – it has great food, at reasonable price points, and amazing ambiance.

-Carnation Cafe
Not only does The Carnation Cafe have prime Main Street real estate, but some of the cutest tables to be as basic as me, and take pictures of your food on. We love coming here for breakfast, and enjoying some Mickey Waffles and eggs.

-Napa Rose
This is the classiest date night spot around at Disneyland. Tucked away in The Grand Californian, the incredible food is only matched by the beautiful ambiance.

-The Lamplight Lounge
RIP Cove Bar, there’s a new spot in the parks to get Lobster Nachos. Whether you stop here for a drink with a view, or a full meal, it should be the top of your list for Disneyland ‘musts’.

-Carthay Circle
Do yourself a favor, and order the biscuits, a few cocktails, and then relax at one of the most beautifully decorated Disney restaurants around.
