The Ultimate Guide to Downtown Disney Dining | Magic in the Planning

The Ultimate Downtown Disney Dining Guide for 2022

|

Downtown Disney dining has certainly evolved over the years, and there are now many great options to choose from. If you aren’t familiar with Downtown Disney, this specialty district connects the Disneyland Resort together in a unique way. Here, you can experience a wide range of shopping, dining, and entertainment experiences, and the best part is that it is open to the public. You do not need a Disney park ticket to enjoy all that Downtown Disney has to offer!

Lego Store in Downtown Disney | Magic in the PlanningThere are definitely some things to keep in mind when deciding on where to dine in Downtown Disney. First of all, if the restaurant of your choice allows you to make a reservation, we highly recommend doing so! Many of these restaurants offer one-of-a-kind experiences that you wouldn’t want to miss because they happen to be fully booked. It is not always possible to walk up to a restaurant and get a table… especially right now during all of the pandemic restrictions.

Also, be sure to take advantage of mobile ordering when you can. Mobile ordering was around before the pandemic, but in 2022, it will become an essential part of dining at the Disneyland Resort. Gone are the days of forming a line to see a menu and order your food. Instead, you order using your mobile device and are allowed inside the restaurant once your food is ready to pick up. It definitely took some getting used to, but we ultimately liked the new system and felt it cut down on crowding and overall wait times quite a bit.

Keep in mind that the menus below are not exhaustive and are subject to change at any time, but they should give you an idea of what to expect at each location in terms of selection. Many of these restaurants include specialty drinks and seasonal food items that are not listed here as they change often. All that being said, here is our Downtown Disney dining guide! Enjoy!
