When people think about a Disney vacation, many people think about food! There are many great options at Disney Parks for foodies! But maybe you’re not a foodie and you just need something to eat. There’s options for you too! Regardless, there’s many options!
I do feel that Disneyland has more (and better) quick service options than Walt Disney World. I also think that Disneyland’s food prices are a little lower than Walt Disney World, at least in most places. One quick service option is the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe which is located just off the hub in Disneyland Park!
Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe is just what it sounds like, so you’re not going to see a ton of lunch or dinner type options but it is great for pastries, sandwiches, or anything you might think about in a bakery. I had seen this Mickey Mouse Mummy Macaron that perked my interest so I wanted to check that out!
I decided to keep it simple and I went for the Jolly Holiday Combo which is a toasted cheese sandwich with tomato basil soup. This was good but not really anything special. I would say this is a great option for picky eaters. It’s a pretty hearty sandwich which was nice but the flavor wasn’t spectacular. Again, it was good, just nothing to brag about. I felt pretty much the same about the soup. The basil flavor was very subtle so if basil isn’t your thing, I wouldn’t let that scare you away.
I also ordered the Mickey Mouse Mummy Macaron that I was very excited about! My initial reaction? Eh. I don’t know, maybe my exceptions were too high but the flavor was really lacking. It’s a white macaron (to be honest I’m not sure what flavor it was supposed to be) with white chocolate icing and a cookies and cream filling. I’m a huge fan of anything cookies and cream but I had only one bite where I could taste anything that seemed like cookies and cream. And this cookie was huge! It’s bigger than the palm of my hand and it is at least couple inches thick. Maybe I was expecting too much but I really kind of felt like I was chewing on sugar. Need a sugar high? This macaron is for you! I’m used to macarons being pretty sweet but also sort of light but full of flavor. This macaron is sweet, that’s for sure, but it’s not light and it’s not full of flavor. I will say that recently I’ve changed my diet and I don’t eat as much sweet deserts as I used to so maybe my taste buds were overwhelmed with sweetness.
In regards to cost, the Jolly Holiday Combo was $10.19 and the Mickey Mouse Mummy Macaron was $5.99. Tax included, the total was $17.43, which isn’t too horrible for Disney prices if you ask me. I felt a little cheated on the macron price but that’s neither here nor there.
Overall, I would recommend Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe for a quick and easy breakfast or lunch. There’s nice seating outside with plenty of shade and the food is decent. If you’re looking for something spectacular or fancy, this isn’t for you! But if you just need to eat and feel like you got a good deal, go for it!
