My 14 Favorite Disneyland Snacks for Little Ones

disneyland snacksWhile many parents may choose to bring their own food to Disneyland for their little ones, there are some snacks available in the Parks that you may want Baby to try, including frozen, sweet and savory tastes. These snacks can be found at either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, and some can be purchased at both locations. Just be sure you go by your pediatrician’s advice first before giving anything to Baby!

1. Mickey Pretzel
Served fresh and warm at carts all over the Parks, the iconic Mickey pretzel is easy for Baby to eat. There are unsalted varieties as well as pretzels filled with cream cheese or served with dipping sauces. Avoid the spicy jalapeno-cheese-filled version if sharing with Baby!

This sweet and tart pineapple soft serve is perfect for spoon-feeding to Baby! You could also choose a float with pineapple juice or a simple pineapple spear to nibble on. They are all available at the Tiki Juice Bar in front of the Enchanted Tiki Room.

3. Sweet and Savory Twists
Maurice’s Treats, located in Fantasyland near the entrance to Toontown has a variety of breaded twists that Baby will love to munch on. The Strawberry Rose Twist is sweet and the Cheddar Garlic Bagel Twist is savory. There are often seasonal Twists available to check out the menu (pumpkin spice in the fall is a fav!)

4. Fruit Smoothies
A yummy blast of freshly blended fruit and yogurt at Schmoozies in Hollywood Land is the perfect sipper-cup addition for Baby.

5. Meat or Veggie Grilled Skewers
Savory and delicious, the grilled skewers at Bengal Barbeque in Adventureland could be full meal. The Chieftain Chicken or Bengal Beef will fill Baby’s tummy with protein. Or choose the Outback Vegetable Skewer with freshly grilled veggies. Naturally, you’ll want to remove the food off of the wooden skewer before giving it to your baby.

6. Freshly Baked Pastries
At Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café find croissants and fruit-studded scones. The oversized muffins and cookies at Jolly Holly Bakery Café are supercalifragilistic… well, you know!

7. Dill Pickle
The icy cold and delightfully sour dill pickles at Tropical Imports are a popular choice for older babies.

8. Hummus
For the sophisticated palate, serve Baby hummus and crackers, found at Fairfax Market.

9. Mickey-shaped Beignets
Soft and pillowy, these freshly baked pastries served at the Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square go fast! Bring a bib and a wipe to clean up Baby afterwards – the generous sprinkling of powdered sugar atop the beignets gets everywhere!

10. Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Baked Potatoes
Looking for something more savory? The large baked potatoes at Troubadour Tavern are covered in broccoli and cheesy sauce – so big and perfect for sharing.

11. Snacks Served in a Cone
Appetite’s revved up? Pull in to the Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land for a plethora of snacks! Try vanilla or chocolate soft serve or Red’s Apple Freeze for Baby’s sweet tooth. Older babies who want something savory may enjoy bites of the Chili Cone Queso, which is served inside a cone made of bread!

12. Churro
Equal parts soft dough with crispy fried edges then coated in cinnamon sugar. What’s not to like about that?! Baby will love nibbling from your churro — just bring a wipe to clean up all the stickiness. You’ll be able to find churro carts all over the Parks.

13. Sourdough Bread
If the sample at the end of the Boudin Bakery Tour leaves Baby hankering for more sourdough, you can purchase bread inside the Pacific Wharf Café. Can’t get enough? Try the seasonal bread pudding for dessert!

14. Fresh Fruit
If you’re looking to keep it simple, there are food carts located all over the Parks that offer fresh fruit. A variety of whole fruits as well as cut fruits in containers are available.

Need Baby Food?
Park guests are permitted to bring their own baby foods with them inside both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure park. If you need more, the Baby Care Center inside each park has regular pureed baby foods and toddler snacks for purchase inside.
