If you’re heading to Disneyland Paris soon you might be a little overwhelmed with all the different food choices available. While this might seem like a bad thing when you’re faced with so many options, it’s also a great thing because it means there is something for everyone. Whatever your budget, diet or personal taste there are Disneyland Paris restaurants that are perfect for you. Whether you’re traveling as a family or on an adult only trip, you’ll always find something to suit your taste.
There are four types of dining options at Disneyland Paris, these being Counter Service, Buffet, Table Service and Character Dining which usually go up in this order in terms of price. If you have decided to get a meal plan, these will include different types of restaurants depending on the level of the plan so be sure to check which of these yours includes. If you do want to visit somewhere that is not included in your meal plan though, you can use it towards the meal and pay an extra top up.
A word of warning if you’re traveling to Disneyland Paris as a vegetarian like me, it is not a huge thing in France. There are not many vegetarian options in many of the restaurants but you should always be able to find something. However, if you look at any menu you will see plenty of green V’s indicating a vegetarian dish. Unfortunately, whoever made these menus don’t seem to understand how this works as they are putting the V for individual items instead of the whole meal. For example if there is something that is chicken served with vegetables there will still be a green V as the vegetables are suitable for vegetarians despite the fact the main part of the food is chicken so is not. Be sure to read the whole menu carefully to avoid accidentally ordering something with meat! I have tried to include the vegetarian options at each establishment in this post with a (v) to make it a little easier when planning your meals.
Opening times given are correct at time of writing however are subject to change depending on park openings.
Counter service restaurants are where you order and pay at the counter and wait to pick it up before finding a seat yourself. There are no cast members to show you to a table or take your order and these are usually the cheapest meals you can get in the park. Most counter service restaurants serve the same kinds of food usually consisting of a main, chips and a drink for a similar price although some have slight variations on this based on their theme.

The all-you-can-eat buffet restaurants are mid tiered and can often be the best value for money based on the amount you get. Each Disneyland hotel has their own buffet restaurants which serves breakfast lunch and dinner, apart from the one Davy Crockett’s Ranch which only opens for dinner in the evening. Most buffets have a slight theme in their food but they usually serve a large variety of generic, international cuisine. When you get there you will pay upfront, be seated by a cast member and have your drinks order taken but then you help yourself to as much food as you want. Due to a law in France, it is illegal to have refillable drinks so you must pay for each drink you have separate.
