Hi,I’m Keiko from Osaka!
Wondering where to eat in Tokyo Disneyland?
There are so many things to do and so much to see….so plan ahead!
There are many food stalls and carts throughout the theme park, but in this article, we will introduce you to great restaurants where you can be seated to rest your feet and enjoy bonding time with your family and friends in Disney style.
Most of these restaurants might not have an English menu, but do not worry!
They often have a fairly accurate (!?) plastic display or a printed menu with lots of pictures, so it is quite easy for you to choose (and point) what you would like to eat.
Here are top 5 restaurants in Tokyo Disneyland.
