If you want some great food without emptying your wallet for a single meal, Disney California Adventure has you covered! Just like we've discussed with Disneyland, California Adventure has a wide variety of dining to choose from and some locations have wonderful options that don't cost a fortune or are great to share. Here are some of our personal favorites at the park!
- AWARD WIENERS | Hollywood Land - Want a run-of-the-mill hot dog? Too bad, this place isn't for you. They only serve specialty dogs with spiral cut fries. It's always a perk when a meal comes with something other than the standard theme park fries, so this has a lot going for it!
- SMOKEJUMPERS GRILL | Grizzly Peak - Burgers, shakes, chili and more can be found at the Smokejumpers Grill. The prices are never too high and the portions are generous. Honestly, the shakes are one of the highlights of the menu.

- BOARDWALK PIZZA & PASTA | Paradise Gardens Park - Here you can save a bit of money since you only have to pay for the food you take. Pizzas, pastas and salads are sold separately and by the slice so if you only want a piece of pizza (and it's a big one at that), that's all you need to pay for. The most filling entrees are the adult pastas which could be split by 2 (or 3 if you really wanted).
- ANGRY DOGS | Pixar Pier - Pay the price for a typical theme park hot dog but get something with a bit more kick - literally! They also have a variety of ketchup and mustard of different spice levels so you can choose how much heat you want. All hot dogs come with "hot fries".
As usual, you can save even more with discounts including Disney Visa Cardholders, Legacy Passholders, DVC members and more. Many of these restaurants offer mobile food ordering as well which can help speed up the ordering process and get your food when you want it. Check out the Disneyland app for the most recent list of restaurants offering mobile ordering.
