Here’s our list of the must-try foods at Tokyo Disneyland:
Melon pan ("melon bread") is a popular snack in Japan and you can find it anywhere, literally. Disneyland’s Sweetheart Cafe offers melon pan in the form of the loveable monster Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc. The melon pan does not have cream inside, but the bread has a melon flavor and it is topped with chocolate. This combination is unusual but trust me, it will make you go back for seconds.
With all the buzz around the Mandalorian and baby Yoda, everyone has been obsessed with the Star Wars franchise lately. You can join the craze and get this Storm Trooper mochi! It comes in four different flavors: custard, milk, caramel, and berry. You can find this delicious mochi at Soft Landing in Tomorrowland.

Japanese curry is served all over Disneyland but the best curry you can find is at the Hungry Bear Restaurant. My go-to dish whenever I come to this restaurant is the tonkatsu curry. The crunchy texture of the cutlet pairs well with the savory curry and the rice. They also have other flavors, such as chicken and roasted vegetables. During certain periods of the year, they will have limited edition curry such as hamburg curry with egg (displayed in the photo).
Who doesn’t love a good burger? Well, at Disneyland you can get a delicious burger in the shape of Mickey! If you come early, this is the perfect breakfast due, with its fluffy bun and fried egg in the middle. Get this with a side of chicken nuggets for lunch. After coming out of Space Mountain, head over to Tomorrowland Terrace and grab a bite!
If you haven’t noticed, Disney has so many different buns that it's difficult to try them all! These Mickey shaped buns come in all sorts of flavors, such as chicken, teriyaki, and pork. My favorite, however, is the teriyaki bun located at Tomorrowland. It isn’t your typical extravagant meal, but it makes for a great portable snack as you move on to the next attraction.
Castella is a very popular Japanese dessert that originated in Portugal, but has been enjoyed in Japan for centuries. Disney took this confectionery and transformed it into a cute Mickey Mouse shape for an Instagram-worthy dessert that Disneyland lovers will love. You can find this sweet treat in different flavors such as chocolate. Head over to Cleo's in Fantasyland and grab one for yourself!
Disneyland does offer different foods for those with dietary restrictions, and this one is perfect for pescatarians and even seafood lovers. This pizza is topped with scallop, shrimp and a good amount of cheese. Eat it while it's hot so you can get that Instagrammable cheese pull. Get this pizza at Captain Hook’s Gallery and enjoy your meal with your favorite Disney drink with front row seats to the daytime parades!
During the winter season, you can grab yourself a nice warm raspberry milk drink (pictured on the left) at Squeezer’s Tropical Fruit Bar. This drink tastes exactly how it sounds -- it is sweet, but with a raspberry flavor that adds a bit of tang. This drink is decorated with red sprinkles and pink chocolate chips, adding to the festive vibe of the season.
Going to Tokyo Disneyland during the holidays is always a delight! There are tons of specialty items and this includes food! If a sudden boba craving hits during your Disneyland trip, no worries, Disneyland’s got your back. Stop by Captain Hook’s Gallery and grab yourself a serving of this sparkling drink.
When you think of soft serve, it normally comes with the ice cream itself and some sauce. However, this particular one comes with cereal on the bottom. I thought this concept was strange when I first received the dessert, but once I tried it, it was so good that I went back for seconds! The soft serve combined with the cereal and raspberry sauce on top gives a nice variety of flavors and textures -- creamy, crunchy, and fruity! Find this yummy dessert at Captain Hook's Gallery.
When it comes to Tokyo Disneyland food, there are abundant cute and Insta-worthy snacks and dishes to choose from. From all the Disney-themed food I tried, my favorite is the sparkling boba and seafood pizza. After grabbing my meal and taking a seat, shows started playing and passing by, so it was a fantastic experience. Overall, my foodie trip to Tokyo Disneyland was great, especially for the price. Tokyo Disneyland tickets are cheaper than most parks, costing at about $77 USD for a day trip. I highly recommend visiting Tokyo Disney Resort during your trip to Japan, to experience the unique Disney magic of Tokyo!
