Earning My Ears
- Jul 14, 2016
We always have to get dole whip when we go! The plaza inn for the chicken is a tradition for us as well to get dinner. And then we usually do ice cream while waiting for fireworks/parades.
Don't go expecting to enjoy most of the food items. They are generally meh... The food is edible but nothing special. If you go with high expectations you will be disappointed.
I think this is contextual. Is the food at DLR exceptional when compared to gourmet food available in the greater L.A. area? Of course not! But is the food much better than what you can get at the average theme park? Surprisingly, yes. Places like CCR and CC Lounge, Lamplight Lounge (downstairs), NR, S55 (breakfast and dinner), Paradise Garden Grill, etc. are not usually found in your average theme park. Yes, you have to be discerning and know how to work your way around the menus, but, in general, DLR will spoil you when it comes to theme park food. Just try to do as well at Sea World...Honestly? Nothing. I love Disneyland but there food is nothing to get excited about. And that is for all levels of service. We have been to all of the DL places and a most of DCA and we now try to eat as many meals as possible out of the park. Dole Whip might be the only exception.
