I recently visited the 30th anniversary celebrations at Disneyland Paris and while I was there, I sampled some of the newly released snacks. It was really exciting to see such a wide range of new food options coming to the parks and I thought it would be fun (and hopefully helpful!) for me to share my thoughts on everything I managed to try.
This is not an extensive list – there are loads, these are simply the ones I tried.
As always, I’ve tried to include as many photos, locations and prices as possible. However, if you do have any questions about anything in this post, please feel free to reach out! The best place to reach me is on Instagram .
The Mickey Sandwich
All food is better when it’s Mickey-shaped. This sandwich is HUGE.
I got the vegetarian option (cheese, peppers, carrot, lettuce, tomato, mayo) but you can also get ham and cheese if that’s more your thing! The bread is very thick so it makes the sandwich super filling, I couldn’t face more food for hours!
You can get these huge Mickey-shaped sandwiches at Market House Deli on Main Street for €9 each. I’ve included a picture of me holding it so you can get an idea of the size!
30th Anniversary Desserts at Downtown Restaurant
I sampled these 30th anniversary desserts at the Downtown Restaurant at Hotel New York, but I imagine they’ll be available at all the hotel buffets during the season. The other desserts (peanut butter slice and Captain America panna cota) are standard offerings at Downtown.
Minnie Dessert (top left) – I was disappointed in this one. I was expecting it to be fruity due to the pink colouring but it was just a very average chocolate mousse. It didn’t taste bad, just bland.
Mickey-Shaped Vanilla Cheesecake (top right) – Again, didn’t taste bad at all but it literally was just plain vanilla cheesecake.
30th Anniversary Macarons (bottom row) – You can’t go wrong with macaron’s, especially in France. They had a huge range of flavours to choose from – I opted for raspberry and mint and both were to die for.
Sweet Treats from Frontierland
We paid a visit to the snack cart opposite Big Thunder Mountain in Frontierland and got these two beauties!
Cheesecake Pop (left) – This one was amazing. I will say that it was extremely sweet, so if you’re not into super sweet things, this might not be the ones for you. It is presented on a stick but the second you bite into it, it will fall straight off. They provide a paper plate – do not throw this away. You will need it to catch your disintegrating cheesecake. Despite being messy – this is probably my favourite 30th anniversary snack so far.
It was €5.00,
Minnie Mouse Shortbread lollipop (right) – Basic but brilliant. It is just a buttery shortbread cookie on a stick covered in icing but I really enjoyed it. As a hardcore Minnie fan, I appreciated the theming, and as an Instagrammer, I appreciated it even more.
This one cost €5.50.
Ok so this one may be a bit of a cheat because it’s not specifically a 30th anniversary snack – but it is new to the parks so I feel like it can be included!
Bitterballen are a Dutch snack (highly recommended by @michellesdisneylife , who was with me that day). She is also Dutch so her recommendations hold double weight.
They’re effectively breaded beef stew (but you can also get a vegetarian version – breaded cheese). It’s a bit of an unusual snack choice for Disneyland Paris but I really enjoyed both versions and would definitely get them again. It’s also great to see some more variety and more European snacks being incorporated into the Disneyland Paris food offerings.
If you’d like to try Bitterballen on your next trip – you can buy it at The Old Mill in Fantasyland for €8 per tub.
As far as Disneyland Paris 30th anniversary snacks go, I was really impressed with the offerings. For years, the food at Disneyland Paris and the range of options have been miles behind the other international Disney parks, and they seem to be turning that around.
I hope that this is the start of much higher quality food offerings at Disneyland Paris and that they will keep up these higher standards long after the 30th celebrations finish.
