What we ate in Disneyland

Let me share with you what we ate during our trip.  When we got to the hotel, it was around 4pm.  After settling down and freshening up in our hotel room, we went to the lobby to eat at the Grand Salon.  It’s the only restaurant open between lunch and dinner time.  They had a hight tea buffet  (around $130HKD) which consists of different tea sandwhiches, tea, and pastries.  We din’t get the tea buffet coz we wanted to eat real food ‘coz we got a bit hungry and tired from the flight.

These are the utensils for kids in the restaurants inside Disney Hotel.
This is what Chesca had. She said she wanted noodles so we ordered the Kiddie Noodle Soup set menu. It had mango sago and jello for dessert. If I remember correctly, this was around $80HKD. Chesca and I shared this.
Rick had Bacon Burger and Fries. Ate 1/4 of it. It was good, couldn't complain. But it was around $90+HKD.
Here's how they serve their ketchup. Cute.

We finished our meal around 5pm.  We had some time to spare, so we went over to Harbour City via Taxi.  It was a Sunday so no traffic and it took us 20 minutes to get there.  After going around the mall a bit, we got some supplies at City Super and we were gonna eat dinner there but we weren’t hungry yet so we ended up eating at the hotel.  Grand Salon dinner buffet for $149HKD.  Kids below 3 eat for free.

Day 2:  Disneyland day!  We decided to try out the breakfast buffet at Grand Salon.

Some of the tables at the Grand Salon look like this. Kinda comfy.
Relaxing & modeling while waiting for her food. Her outfit was a pink Elle dress, yellow Zara tee, violet leggings from greenhills to keep bugs away, and gold Sun-san Salt-water sandals.
We ate here coz we wanted to wait for the Princesses at the Lobby. Unfortunately, they never showed up. The buffet had dimsum, congee, different breads, noodles, cereals, fruits, yogurt, and juices. Coffee was available too for that energy boost you'll need for the whole day at the park! (Sorry, this was the only picture I had, it so didn't do justice to the food...this was what Chesca ate..basically noodles, yogurt, milk, and fruits--she didn't like the cereals-- corn flakes & rice puffs). Around $130HKD/person. Again, kids below 3 eat for free.

We finished breakfast around 11am then we headed to the park.  After some walking and picture taking with princesses, we ate lunch at the restaurant in Fantasyland.

I wasn't too hungry coz of the breakfast buffet so I just got a $25HKD hotdog with pickle relish and mustard. Got it from one of the stalls around the park. It was your NORMAL broiled hotdog. Not that great but keeps hunger away.
Here's what my husband had. Fish Burger and Fries (around $60HKD). Also had honey dipped chicken wings. Drinks would cost $20-22HKD at the park.
She was asleep while we were eating so we were able to eat a bit properly and relaxed. We had no one to run after or feed 🙂
She wanted chicken and rice so we got wings and a cup of rice from the same restaurant. She wasn't able to finish it so I put it in her water container (coz i had no where else to put it). After an hour, she got hungry and gave her her leftover food.

We went back to the hotel before 6pm to get to our 630pm dinner reservation at Enchanted Garden.  We made it a bit early coz we were planning to go back to the park by 8pm for the fireworks at 830pm.

Enchanted Garden is where you'll see Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, & Pluto going around tables for picture taking.

There was one more buffet I wasn’t able to take a picture of.  But to sum it up, food was good.  It was comparable to the HEAT buffet in Edsa Shangrila (but double the price!).  It had a good selection of food and convenient way of putting smiles on the kids’ faces by interacting with the characters without having to line up!


Day 3 breakfast.  We had room service for breakfast.  We had waffles, pancakes, fruits, orange juice, sandwhiches, milk, & coffee.  All for the 3 of us to share.  I have a picture of that and will post it once I find it :-).

For Lunch, we ate at the restaurant in Tomorrowland that had a lot of flying saucer decors.  After eating, we saw Buzz lightyear outside and we were able to take a picture with him.

This was the Burger meal I ordered. It came with a drink, fries, and corn on the cob. We ordered extra chicken wings.

We headed back to the hotel around 4pm to catch our 430pm shuttle to the airport (which we missed).

Dinner was roasted duck from Cafe de Coral.  Chesca had chicken nuggets from McDonalds.  And we had Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for dessert.  All in the airport.

To sum it up, we were after the convenience.  We ate what was near and didn’t think of bringing food from Manila or buying from the grocery and cook it ourselves or buy cup noodles or canned goods.  Our thinking was, it would defeat the purpose of the vacation.  A lot of people were saying that food’s expensive in Disneyland or at the hotel.  But since you already paid so much for the trip, what’s a few more bucks for hot freshly cooked food.  It was time to enjoy and relax a bit.  So we decided to splurge just a tiny bit for that convenience.

If we were to go back, we’d still eat in the restaurants at the hotel and at Disneyland.
