Café Orleans

When visiting Disneyland, a must have is the Monte Cristo and Pommes Frites at Café Orleans in New Orleans Square. They have so many great items on the menu, but these two items are a Disneyland Classic that you have to indulge in at least once.

Indoor or outdoor seating available. I prefer to sit outside so I can people watch and enjoy the sights and sounds of New Orleans Square.

Holidays Eats at Trolley Treats

Trolley Treats at Disney California Adventure Park is a sweet shop (pun intended) on Buena Vista Street. Trolley Treats carries all kinds of freshly made treats from cake pops, caramel apples, toffee, fudge, cookies, to seasonal favorites. Most of the treats at Trolley Treats can be found at Candy Palace and Pooh Corner at Disneyland, and Marceline’s Confectionery in Downtown Disney District. I can’t stop myself from popping in every visit to the park.
