Disneyland. The Happiest Place on Earth. Not just for little kids and families anymore. If you’re an adult with no kids and with plenty of disposable income to spend on yourself, you can buy yourself an annual pass. One would wonder why you’d expose yourself to disgusting screaming children, long lines and hordes of zombie like Disney geeks. Well besides having a mild dusting of Disney geek in me myself, I go for the food.
While I was in college I worked as a wise cracking Jungle Cruise skipper. Getting to know the Disneyland underbelly only fueled my fascination with it even more. I left right before the mouse turned me into a bitter mummy forever. Fortunately I left with a deep love for it. Disneyland is no longer my childhood dream world or my former employer. In my adult life Disney is now a place where I can go with friends to eat delicious food and people watch.
Main Street USA is a great place to people watch and enjoy a delicious Corn Dog or Turkey Leg. There’s something rather evil and hilariously entertaining watching stressed out moms and dads (parents that are younger than me) chase after their hyperactive kids. Those poor saps cant enjoy Disneyland in a chill leisurely manner the way I do. I sit looking at my ten dollar churro and laugh. Maybe I’m the fool. Disney knows how to pull a Stromboli and puppeteer us all as he did Pinocchio (never mind he had no strings) well, you know what I mean. If you play Disneyland right you can make it your own Pleasure Island…well except for turning into jackasses. Hmm well never mind.
I compiled a very large list that I’m going to cut down in to a few blog posts. This is my first edition of my favorite Disney foods:
- The Fried Chicken at The Plaza Inn on Main Street at Disneyland.
This fried chicken is some of the crispiest and juiciest pieces of fried chicken ever! I like to dip my pieces of chicken in honey or in Tabasco, which are both provided at the condiment bar at the Plaza Inn. I only wished they served waffles and maple syrup..
- Bengal BBQ in Adventureland at Disneyland.
A chieftan chicken skewer in a polyneasian sauce and a banyan beef skewer in a hot and spicy peppery sauce. This is when they still served it with a whole stalk of green onions. They recently stopped serving the onion which was rather sad for me, but then again I was probably the only fool that would eat the whole thing and stink up all of the Magic Kingdom.
- Dole Whip and Dole Float at the Tiki Juice Bar in Adventureland at Disneyland.
All photos are taken by me. I hope you get a chance to go and taste some of these delights. I will compile another list of delicious favorites soon. If you need more information about eating at Disneyland, here’s a link.
