7 BEST Places to Eat at Disneyland on a Budget! (Disney Food Guide)

Where are the best places to eat at Disneyland on a budget? Don’t worry, I got you!

Planning a trip and actually going to the Disneyland Resort is expensive. There are a ton of ways to cut down on costs, like staying at a good neighbor hotel and walking to the parks each morning.

Another easy way to save money is to eat at some of Disneyland’s more budget-friendly restaurants. These locations are scattered around Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure.

They offer a good food, large portions, and sometimes free soda refills at a cheaper cost than some of the other restaurants at the theme parks.

These seven budget-friendly restaurants are all considered quick-service restaurants, but that just means you can take your lunch or dinner with you and find the best spots in the park to dine. (Looking at you patio space near Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe.)

Howard Johnson Inn Near Disneyland Hotel Review with Victoria Wade

REVIEW: Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Waterpark (Hotels Near Disneyland)

During a recent solo trip out to Disneyland Resort to later meet with a friend, I was given a chance to stay at the Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Waterpark right down the street from the Resort!

The Disneyland Resort suffers from being surrounded by off property resorts, highways, restaurants and tourist traps.

Walt despised the fact that Disneyland’s success caused businesses to flock to the area and essentially entrap them, not to mention the ongoing battle with the city of Anaheim to expand isn’t helping.

At the same time, over the years, Disneyland has made it a premium or lower/middle class families and solo travelers alike and so some have had to make the choice to go to good neighbor hotels nearby.

There are so many options in the area to choose from though, how do you decide?

Disney made it a bit easier with their “Good Neighbor ” hotel program that features hotels vetted and approved by Disney themselves to stay with based on a specific criterion.

Fortunately, Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground is among the Good Neighbor Hotel list and I’m excited to share what they offer and my experience.
