In the mood for food but want to stick to a budget? There are still plenty of great options in Disneyland Park that won't cost you an arm and a leg while still serving quality meals. Many may seem expensive but are perfect for splitting so you spend half as much. These are our favorite inexpensive places to grab some grub that everyone will enjoy while not breaking the bank. UPDATED 13 June 2021
- CARNATION CAFE | Main Street, USA - This is the only table service option I'll mention, but it's because it's the cheapest of all other traditional restaurants. I've never had anything that isn't great and they only offer down-home classics.
- PLAZA INN | Main Street, USA - Breakfast isn't cheap by any means, but every other meal is if you consider that they give you TONS of food! I usually don't plan on finishing a meal by myself.
- JOLLY HOLIDAY BAKERY CAFE | Main Street, USA - This is a great place to just get some snacks or a full meal, none of which are very expensive but all of which are extremely tasty!
- BENGAL BARBECUE | Adventureland - Delicious skewers and other exotic dishes for a fairly low price! Make sure you're not too hungry, though, since portions can be on the small side. If you are feeling a bit more peckish, go for the plate combo which comes with sides.
- STAGE DOOR CAFE | Frontierland - Have you heard of those amazing hand-dipped corn dogs on Main Street, USA? Don't get them there! The exact same corn dogs are served at the Stage Door Cafe for less money and come with more food! Save yourself both time and money.
- ROYAL STREET VERANDA | New Orleans Square - They have a limited menu, but their gumbos are to die for! Plus there's never much of a wait since they fill orders rapidly. Bread bowls are really filling so you may not need to eat a whole lot later.
- RONTO ROASTERS | Galaxy's Edge - The choices are quite simple: pita wraps and turkey jerky. It's the cheapest meal you'll find in Galaxy's Edge and is ready super fast with little wait. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner and specialty drinks not available anywhere else.
- HUNGRY BEAR RESTAURANT | Critter Country - I can't tell you how much I enjoy this place! They often have very unique dishes (like bison burgers and specialty funnel cakes) and the portions are perfect! Except for the funnel cakes, those you'll want to split among several people. They take up the entire plate!
- FRENCH MARKET | New Orleans Square - This is one of my personal favorites! Similar to the Plaza Inn, this place serves large portions which can be easy to share. There are also a lot of options so it can be a easier for groups with picky eaters.
Make meal time simpler using Mobile Ordering at many locations throughout the park using the app. Each of these restaurants also provide discounts for Disney Vacation Club members, Annual Passholders, Disney Visa Card holders, Cast Members, and much more! Keep in mind that offerings will change during Disneyland's phased reopening.
