Fun Facts about Disneyland Food You Didn't Know

Since 1955, Disneyland has been a place where kids have fun and adults connect with their inner child. What kids and adults alike will always do at Disneyland is EAT. Here are some fun facts you probably didn't know about dining at Disneyland.

  • Disneyland Resort continues to hire and help train some of the top chefs in the culinary industry. More than 50 chefs work in culinary management, and many are graduates of prestigious culinary schools. In addition, the resort employs nearly 200 restaurant and catering managers and nearly 9,000 food and beverage cast members overall.
  • With more than 155 food and beverage locations, the Disneyland Resort offers more than 15,000 different food items sold across the property.
  • More than 24 million meals are served annually across the Disneyland Resort. (Let that sink in)

  • Mickey-themed eats and treats are always popular items, including: fresh Mickey beignets at the Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square, Mickey-shaped pretzels at carts throughout both parks, Mickey macarons at Jolly Holliday Bakery & Café, Mickey Mouse waffles at character dining locations including Goofy’s Kitchen, Storytellers Café, PCH Grill and Plaza Inn, Mickey caramel apples and cake pops at Candy Palace and Trolley Treats, and so many more.
  • Disneyland Resort guests consume approximately 236,000 apples each year. If Maximus from “Tangled” ate an apple a day, it would take him 630 years to eat all of the apples consumed annually at the Disneyland Resort.
  • If the 4,400,000 churros that are consumed each year at the Disneyland Resort were laid end-to-end, they would stretch 1,111 miles. That’s enough churros to line the Disneyland Resort monorail track 444 times.
  • Disneyland Resort guests consume 890,000 Mickey-shaped pretzels annually. That’s enough to give one to every person in the state of New Mexico.
  • If the 2,500,000 hot dogs that are served each year were laid end-to-end, it would take Buzz Lightyear 237 miles to pass them flying on his way to infinity and beyond.
  • The pounds of tomatoes consumed annually at the Disneyland Resort would be equivalent to the weight of 233 Lightning McQueens from “Cars.”
  • If Disneyland Resort was a restaurant chain, it would rank the 84th largest restaurant chain in America in food and beverage sales.

  • In any given year, guests purchase more than 12 million kids meals, and parents typically choose the nutritious sides and beverages that Disney offers as the menu default option. Typically, six out of 10 kids meals are served with the healthy options.
