Good, but no, it didn't make the list

Starting this Friday, Disneyland will begin celebrating its new, not-yet-really-annual buffet of bachanality -- their 24-hour Day of Disney (Okay, it's called Rock Your Disney Side, but Day of Disney is a much better name). From 6 a.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday, the Disneyland resort will be in operation -- rides will run, guests will crowd, some crazy AP holder(s) will try to stay awake for 24-hours. Really, this list is for them.

To stay up and cheery for 24 hours, you're going to have to eat, and why not eat the best things Disneyland has to offer?

These are the 10 best things to eat at Disneyland.

10. Corn Dogs

Crunchy!

Really, corn dogs in general are a winning combination. Anytime you take meat, line it with bread, and then fry the entire thing, you're going to have a good time. Disneyland's version is the pinnacle of corn dog-edness as it should be if I have to pay over $100 just to get a chance to buy the thing.

And now, the worlds of Jonathan Gold.

The corn dogs, definitely the corn dogs. Massive, well-spiced things, dipped and fried to order, can be found at what looks like a converted delivery truck parked near the end of Main Street, right by the Nestlé-sponsored diapering station. I can sincerely say that I've never had a better corn dog, even at a county fair. Afterward, you can walk over to the Enchanted Tiki Room and have a double pineapple whip for dessert.
[If you want to skip the Whip line, just go inside the Enchanted Tiki Room. Or, if you ever spend time just vaguely near Irvine, you can skip all of the lines together and have it whenever you want, just head over to Strikland's]

9. Fried Chicken at the Plaza Inn

Just look for this sign

The fried chicken at the Plaza Inn is an achievement of high heat and fat. Beautifully fried, the skin is a near Cathedral fragile crisp while the meat is ridiculously moist. How they get it that way, I'm not completely sure. Brining? Faerie magic? Applause?

Whatever it is, Knotts' chicken needs some because the last few years haven't been kind to the food at Orange County's other park.

8. Beignets at Mint Julep Cafe

Mmmm.. fried bread..

Ah beignets, what's there not to love. Loveable balls of dough tossed about in rolling oil and finished with powdered sugar, they're a recipe for addiction. Pleasantly sweet, and with a crisp firmness that outclasses any donut or funnel cake, they're one of the most perfect simple foods you can get.

It's not Halloween, but if you're revisiting near then, make sure to try to pumpkin flavored beignets, they might even be better.

Man, three items in and everything's been fried.

Great article. I can vouch for NR! Awesome experience and Saucy is the best. Once you do counter, you never go back to tables. Please proofread, though. The typos and weird words detract from content and kill credibility...

Price of a Disneyland ticket is ridiculous. You're better off getting a season pass at Knotts and it's still cheaper than a one day pass at the greediest place on Earth.

Good day to everyone reading this testimony. I was heartbroken when my wife moved in with another man abandoning our family. So I had a spell to bring her back home and stop the affair she is having with the new man. In just 4 days she left him and went to live at the motel to cover her shame. She called to say so and also get news of the kids. The discussion was pleasant, as if she was changing to become the woman I knew when we got married. Now she's back home and absolutely crazy in love with me and the kids. I am so thrilled by this spell that I can't find the right words to say how I feel right now. All I can decently say is that Dr. LALUDE, saved the most important thing in my life. My family gives thanks to you Sir for bringing back my wife home. If you are passing through the same problems in your marriage, please contact Dr.LALUDE, for help on his Email: prophetlaludespellcaster@gmail.com. He can also help on different kind of problems.
