Visiting Disneyland means lots of delicious options inside the park but have you ever wondered what there is outside the resort to eat that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg? Over the years I’ve made a list of my favorite food options in Anaheim and today I’m sharing them with you! Here are my choices for 5 tasty restaurants near Disneyland.
1. In N Out
In N Out isn’t walking distance from the park but it’s worth the 5-minute drive. I’m not going to get into the burger wars and which burger in the country is best, but if you’ve never tried an In N Out Burger, make it a point to get there while visiting Disneyland. What I love about In N Out is that they will personalize your burger and not even bat an eye. Want ketchup and mustard instead of sauce? No problem. Want your onions grilled instead of raw? They can do that too!
2. Earl of Sandwich
Located in Downtown Disney, Earl of Sandwich is a great choice for dinner near the resort, but not actually in the park. Their selection of delicious soups and sandwiches under $10 is amazing. I like that they also have fresh fruit and a wide variety of drinks and desserts. More importantly, there is plenty of community seating under the awning with means that even during the busiest times, your party can find a seat while one person goes and orders.
3. Anaheim Packing House
Another option that within driving distance to Disneyland, Anaheim’s Packing District is a historical building that now holds a variety of different eateries. It’s a fun and quirky space but don’t be fooled, there are some delicious options like the sandwiches and poutine from Kroft, southern food from Georgia’s or delicious desserts from Popbar.
4. The Pizza Press
Located adjacent to the Carousel Inn, The Pizza Press is a great to go options for family dining. They have very limited seating so we typically get it to go. The toppings are fresh, the sauce is delicious and the crust always have a perfect balance of firmness and it doesn’t get soggy right away. Prices are reasonable and they also have a tiny bar that serves beer for those that need an adult libation.
5. Panera Bread
I know Panera Bread is a chain restaurant but if you need a quick bite, Panera gets the job done for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Located not far from the Disneyland Main entrance, Panera Bread is known for their soups and salads. This particular restaurant has plenty of seating and delicious kids options like real macaroni and cheese, yogurt and grilled sandwiches. They also have excellent wifi if you just want to eat and browse the web!
