I love trying local food when we travel. So when we ventured to Tokyo Disney I vowed not to eat a single burger or fry (even though it was readily available). The restaurants at both parks had park versions of local cuisine as well as tons of Americanized options.

 

1. Popcorn

Found at: Everywhere!

Tokyo Disney is known for their popcorn! They have so many different flavors scattered around throughout both parks. We made it our mission to try every single flavor and I’m glad we tried them all as I was surprised at what I liked and didn’t like. I don’t care for the taste of coffee or curry but the cappuccino flavored popcorn was delightful and the curry popcorn was really good too! I thought I would love the soy sauce flavor and the milk chocolate flavor but I didn’t care for those as much.

My husband’s favorite was the honey flavor, which can only be found outside of Pooh’s Hunny Hunt in Disneyland. My favorite was white chocolate, which can be found in a couple different places in Tokyo DisneySea. Luckily, the people at Disney know how badly you want to try their popcorn flavors and they’re easy to find on the maps!

2. Frozen Mango

Found at: Tropic Al’s in the Lost River Delta at DisneySea

The menus are in English but sometimes don’t translate the best. I ordered this thinking it would be a mango flavored ice pop. Nope! It was a frozen chunk of mango. On a stick. I laughed when I realized what I bought but it was really good! I had no idea mango could be so good frozen.

3. Bacon Wrapped Rice Roll

Found at: Liberty Landing Diner in the American Waterfront at DisneySea

It’s bacon wrapped around rice, how could you go wrong? It looks like some sort of bacon wrapped hot dog but the only meat is the bacon shell. The whole thing had a soy sauce glaze and it was tasty!

4. Frozen Kirin Beer

Found at: Almost everywhere that serves beer in Tokyo DisneySea

Nothing beats a hot day quite like an ice cold beer. But, they take it to a whole new level by freezing the foam on top into some sort of weird soft serve style cone. If you like the foam, you’ll love it! Otherwise, grab a straw so you can get to the beer underneath while the frozen foam slowly melts. It’ll keep your beer cold for much longer though!

5. Udon Noodles

Found at: Plaza Restaurant in Tomorrowland at Disneyland

I never thought I’d want soup in the summer but this bowl of udon noodles was served cold! Normally, I’m not a fan of cold soup but it was delicious! On our 90 degree days in the park it really hit the spot and it came with mickey shaped soft boiled egg. How do they do that?!

6. Mickey’s Chicken Sandwich

Found at: Plaza Restaurant in Tomorrowland at Disneyland

I’m a sucker for Mickey shaped food! So, when I saw someone with a sandwich where the bun was a mickey hand, I had to know where it came from! Think of it as a friend chicken sandwich on a super thin bun. It may have been the most American thing we ate, but it did have some sort of a soy sauce based glaze on the chicken, so that still counts, right?!

7. Alien Mochi

Found at: Sweetheart Café in the World Bazaar at Disneyland and Mamma Biscotti’s Bakery in the Mediterranean Harbor at DisneySea

Oh little green alien mochi, how I love thee! I ate mochi almost every morning with my breakfast and snagged one every night on my way out of the park. Every container comes with three and you never know what flavors you’ll get! I had chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and caramel flavored and they were so good!

8. Mike Wasowski Melon Pastry

Found at: Sweetheart Café in the World Bazaar at Disneyland and Mamma Biscotti’s Bakery in the Mediterranean Harbor at DisneySea

I’m not really even sure what to call this thing. We had it at a few bakeries in Japan before entering the parks so we recognized it right away. It’s a light, fluffy, croissant-like pastry with a melon flavored custard. Then they cover it with a green melon flavored fondant. My husband loved it almost as much as I loved my alien mochi!

 

9. Dim Sum Trio

Found at: Vulcania Restaurant in the Mysterious Island at DisneySea

This Buffeteria style restaurant was just plain cool. It offered Chinese food options and we just had to score the dim sum trio. It had a steamed seafood bun and another bun with a picture of Goofy on it, how could I say no?!

 

10. Soft Serve

Found at: Squeezer’s Tropical Juice Bar in Adventureland at Disneyland

If you’re craving a Dole Whip, this is the closest thing you’ll find. Their offerings change throughout the year and when we were there in the summer we scored a mango flavored float concoction that was delicious! I hear now that we’re getting into fall they have pumpkin flavored soft serve- yum!

I love watching how Disney puts a twist on food. They always have to please the masses with pizza and burgers but they still manage to offer something more to the foodie in all of us. There were tons of places to find a burger and if you were really hungry, it was tempting to settle. But, if you’re willing to dig a little, you can find some hidden gems in these parks that carry the most unique takes on common dishes.

  1. My kids would love all that food. I’ve never been to Japan (worked in Taiwan before, and people tell me that Taiwan and Japan are similar to one another). I usually travel with my family and if I ever make it to Tokyo then Tokyo Disney will be on my itinerary. Good post. Thanks for sharing…

  2. Wow! this is so fun! haha I love Disney and asian food; this blog post is awesome. Frozen Kirin Beer sounds delicious and I kind of wish I had one right now. I never really consider visiting Disney’s outside of the U.S.A but your blog may have inspired to take a visit to Tokyo Disney. haha great job! 🙂

  3. What the heck?? How did they do that with the egg?? That’s going to bother me forever! I’m actually not much of a Disney park person (but I love the movies), but the food is really unique here that I’d probably visit based on those alone.

    I love Disneyland and Disney World in the US, so when I saw your post, I was excited! It’s so fun to see something that feels familiar to us (McDonald’s, Starbucks, etc.) in a foreign country because you can tell how they have adapted it to make it their own. The bacon wrapped rice roll looks decadent, but delicious!

  5. Oh these food items are so delicious! All of these Mouse ears on the food items are so fun too. The kids would definitely love this!

    Hahaha, I bought a frozen mango pop once in Korea too thinking it was a popsicle. Frozen mango is still very yummy though! The mickey egg in the udon bowl is so adorable! Sign me up for curry flavored popcorn (or anything, really), too!

  7. Lynne Sarao says:

    Ok those udon noodles look so amazing. How on earth did they get the yellows of the eggs to look like Mickey’s ears? That is truly amazing!

  8. Clare says:

    That food looks so good. I would certainly try the pop corn and maybe the dim sum. It’s great they have so many good choices there 🙂

  9. Wow…everything looks so delightful. The eggs with Mickey shaped ears bring out the child in me…. so cute! I never knew about frozen beer….would surely love to try that! Cheers!
