Food is a huge part of any Disney trip and Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea is no different. While there are a ton of excellent counter and table service restaurants, sometimes you just want a snack that is both adorably cute and equally delicious. Lucky, there is no shortage of snacks which meet this criteria. On your next trip to Tokyo Disney Resort, here are the 10 best snacks you simply must eat.
First, you will notice the lack of popcorn in this list. There is a perfectly good reason for this. Popcorn deserves its own list, which you can check out!
Pizza Spring Roll
Who doesn’t love pizza without all the mess? These delicious spring rolls filled with mozzarella and pizza sauce are too good to pass up. As an added bonus the packaging not only keeps your hands from getting covered in cheese, it looks adorable too! Find these over in Toontown in Tokyo Disneyland.
Mike Wazowski Melon Bread
Melon bread (aka Melon Pan) is a sweet bread which is popular in Japan. While it does have a hint of melon taste, it is not overpowering and is quite delicious. Fittingly, it is shaped as Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc. Sweet bread in Japan is very light, fluffy, and not too sweet. Which makes this a perfect snack when you’re waiting for the next show or queueing for Monsters Inc. Hide and Go Seek. Available at both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
Minnie Mouse Bun (Strawberry Milk)
Only found at Tokyo Disneyland is this cute and delicious (I sense a pattern here) steamed bun. This Minnie Mouse shaped bun is filled with mouth-watering strawberry milk cream. If you’re a strawberry fan, then this is a must. Photo provided by reader Todd.
Mini Mickey Waffles
Don’t have enough time to sit down at the Great American Waffle Company over at Tokyo Disneyland? Then these deliciously cute mini Mickey Waffles are the ticket. Bite sized waffles are perfect for on the go, and even come with maple syrup and tiny fork to eat them with. Available at Tokyo DisneySea.
Are you in for something truly unique? The Chandu Tail at Tokyo DisneySea is certainly different. This chicken cream filled steamed bun, takes its Chandu inspiration from Sinbad’s Storybook Adventure in the Arabian Coast. Which is a popular character from the story, a small tiger. At first glance, it looks as though this should have a sweet cream or custard inside. But it’s filled with warm creamed chicken, which is surprisingly delicious. Perfect as a late night snack when the weather begins to cool down. Photo by TDR News.
Mickey Shaped Chicken Nuggets
Simple, tasty, and familiar are the best choice of words to describe these Mickey shaped chicken nuggets. Available at both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Photo by TDR News.
Gyoza is a usually a small dumpling typically filled with pork and vegetables. Tokyo DisneySea has taken this concept and created the Gyoza Dog, which is a hand sized version of this popular dumpling. This is our “go to” snack anytime we are at Tokyo DisneySea. During Halloween they offer a seasonal version, which is usually coloured black and has some different fillings. Available only at Tokyo DisneySea in Mysterious Island. While the line does get long, it is certainly worth the wait.
Ukiwa Bun (Shrimp)
A steamed meat bun in the shape of a buoy filled with delicious shrimp named the Ukiwa Bun! This Tokyo DisneySea exclusive snack usually has long lines but it is worth waiting for. Not only does it taste fantastic, the presentation is just as good. Who does not think that a Donald Duck’s butt is NOT cute?
Green Alien Dumplings (Mochi)
Quite possibly the cutest dessert throughout the entire resort. These small green alien dumplings come in three different flavours: custard, strawberry, and chocolate. Mochi is a traditional Japanese sweet which is pounded rice until it creates a sticky ball. In 2015 for the celebration of the opening of the Stitch Encounter, they released a limited time Scrump version at Tokyo Disneyland. The flavours were: mango, banana, and sweet potato.
In addition to all these above snacks, the resort also offers seasonal snacks. These are available for a limited time and change almost every year. Which makes it difficult to list them here, since they may not come back after they are gone! Grab a Japanese Park Map when you enter the park and the inside of the map will list all the seasonal food in the park.
Which of these snacks from the list are your favourite? Ours is definitely the Gyoza Dog. Let us know in the comments!
