Disney Tokyo not only has fun, but at this Asia’s top amusement park is also a food paradise. You are not worried about hunger when you playing here because in every area there are restaurants with diverse cuisine from all over the world.
However, if you want to save your budget, don’t focus on eating too much, because food price at Disney Tokyo is not cheap, the food around the park range from ¥1.000 ($9.38) to ¥5.000 ($46.91). I suggest you some famous foods at Disney Tokyo below.
It would be a mistake when visiting Tokyo Disneyland and skip the lovely green alien mochi cakes. Inside the cake, there are many flavors for you to choose from such as strawberry, chocolate, vanilla. This dish is really lovely to check-in or to eat, but the price is not so friendly, around ¥880 ($8.26)/portion.
In addition, for the main meals in the restaurant, you can choose famous restaurants at Disneyland such as Blue Bayou at Adventureland which is a famous lunch spot. Also, you can dine at some other good restaurants such as Crystal Palace, China Voyager, Polynesian Terrace, and The Gazebo restaurants.
