Best Restaurants at Disneyland Paris
Planning a trip to Disneyland is no easy task. There are so many things to consider logistically such as transportation, costs of tickets, and most importantly what to eat!
I’m going to make your lives a bit easier in this article by giving you a list of restaurants in and around Disneyland Paris, located just 25 kilometers outside of Paris.
Sure Disneyland is usually considered mostly a kid’s attraction (although I would argue it’s more fun as a grown up!) But I’m not going to give you menus of chicken nuggets and fast food pizzas, like you’d find at most theme parks. Disneyland Paris has a wide variety of eateries that will satisfy your hunger pains after a long day of rides, fireworks, Princess parades and other Disney park shenanigans.
Besides the iconic attractions and rides, Disneyland Paris’ line-up also includes more than 25 places to eat. These vary in size and type, including table service, counter service and buffet restaurants, offering many different types of cuisine in fun-themed settings.
One big tip to consider is to try and reserve your restaurant of choice in advance as they fill up quickly! For those restaurants that require it, bookings can be made 60 days in advance of your stay. For those that require bookings, I’ve included the reservation number.
Another insider tip is to eat at unusual times, such as around the times of the parade in the Disney Park. Most people will be watching it so some restaurants will be quiet and have more availability.
I’m going to start with my personal favorite, Vapiano. What can I say about Vapiano, besides it being one of the best Italian food chains out there (and good Italian food chains are hard to come by) . Located in Disney Village, this pizza and pasta restaurant offers meals suitable for all ages. The concept is quick, easy, and delicious. With a menu of large variety offering pasta, pizza, salads, and cheese, you won’t have a hard time picking something tasty.
The chefs take your order and make the plate right in front of you. It’s a treat to watch the pasta boil, and see them make the sauces from scratch. Not to mention the scents of fresh Italian food fills the air and the food is simply delicious. My personal favorites are the cream de fungi and pesto rosso pasta dishes. I can vouch for the salads being copious and fresh, too. This is a great option that is on the less expensive side and is also quick and easy!
Bistro Chez Remy
Creatively designed restaurants are part of the Disneyland experience! If you’re a Ratatouille movie fan, this might be the place for you!
Located in Walt Disney Studios, this Ratatouille-themed restaurant is a table service restaurant serving traditional French cuisine. The decor is quite adorable, with giant corks for chairs and jam jars for tables. In addition to the Disney decor, Chez Remy restaurant always is highly recommended as one of the best Disneyland Paris bistros, and is probably the only time you’ll enjoy eating at a rat-themed place!
You can book a table by calling +33 1 60 30 40 50.
This restaurant allows guests to enjoy contemporary, delicious recipes from all over the globe among the Victorian era decor.
You’ll find it inside the Disney Hotel, at the entrance to the Disney Park. It is one of the Disneyland Paris restaurants where some character dining happens. The character interaction is highly raved about. Each character spends time at the guests tables and several add another layer of entertainment to your meal. I would definitely recommend visiting with children! They even offer photographs and autograph signings!

Another table service restaurant in the Disney Village, this is a 50’s themed American diner with a menu of large variety.
The Annette’s Diner will make you live or relive the 50’s, the Happy Days and the legend of Route 66. Sit at the counter for a fast-food type meal, take your meal to go, or take a seat at a table! Enjoy the vintage atmosphere, featuring giant hamburgers, hot dogs, milkshakes, and real American breakfasts served by waiting staff on roller skates! Visitors are swept back to the time of bebop, rock & roll, the twist, bobby socks and two-tone shoes. All while your favorite vintage hits are playing from the jukebox!
One of the things I’ve missed since living in Paris is classic American diner food, so when I stumble upon a treat like this one, I feel right back at home in a classic style American diner with all the tasty comfort food.
Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show
A dining show experience, located in the Disney Village, you’ll enjoy a Wild West show featuring Mickey and friends while dining on a hearty Texan meal.
