"Snack Hunt" at Tokyo DisneySea

A day at any Disneyland Parks is never enough to see everything, and time spent waiting for food or finding available tables seem better spent on queuing for attractions. Well, at least for me.

If you're like me who prefers to eat fast and explore, I have listed below some snacks I got the last time I visited Tokyo DisneySea. They're also instagram-worthy, so that's a plus!

1. Gyoza Sausage Bun (500JPY)

Prior to our trip, my friend and I researched and carefully planned our itinerary - from the attractions we like to see down to the food we like to try - and the famous Gyoza Dog was on the top of our list. Aside from its shape, the Gyoza Dog is nothing like a sausage or a hotdog. It’s actually a steamed bun stuffed with diced pork.

This savory treat can be purchased for 500JPY at Nautilus Galley, just down the stairs from the Mysterious Island Gift Shop and is perfect for on-the-go.

2. Curry Popcorn with Popcorn Bucket (2,500JPY)

Disney Parks have always been known to have quirky popcorn flavors, like soda and soy sauce, and cute popcorn buckets featuring Disney characters like Rapunzel and Toy Story to name a few. There are also popcorn buckets featuring Duffy and his friends, like CookieAnne and StellaLou, which are exclusive only at DisneySea in Japan.

As for me, it wasn't part of my plan to get one until we were strolling around Arabian Coast and the Steamboat Willie popcorn bucket caught my eye. Just my luck, the popcorn was curry flavored which was something I was happy to try.

Now I get why popcorn buckets are a thing - popcorn is the best snack to munch on while lining up for attractions. I loved the flavor so much I finished mine in an hour! I wish I bought a refill or two because I'm not lying when I say that I've had cravings for curry popcorn even weeks after our trip.

Do note that some popcorn buckets are seasonal or are only available for a certain period of time, so I suggest that if you find one you really like, get it!

3. Iced Caramel Milk Tea (400JPY)

It was summertime when we went to DisneySea and so to quench our thirst, we tried the Iced Caramel Milk Tea from Cape Cod Confections. To be honest, I’m more of an iced coffee person, but I couldn't resist the cute Summer Duffy-themed cup.

4. Sea Salt Ice Cream Monaka (310JPY)

And to beat the summer heat, we bought Sea Salt Ice Cream Monaka. Traditionally, monaka is a type of Japanese sweets made of red bean filling sandwiched between two mochi wafers.

This one though is more like an ice cream sandwich for me - a seashell-shaped wafer sandwich with ice cream and raspberry fillings.

5. Curry Chicken & Baked Potatoes with Cheese Sauce (500JPY)

It's pretty obvious by now that I love curry because the last on my list is curry-flavored again. I bought this delicious pair from Hudson River Harvest, which is just in front of S.S. Columbia (the gigantic ship that is also a restaurant).

Although the serving was a bit small, with only about three to four pieces of karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken), it's also a great choice for on-the-go, or to enjoy by the bench overlooking the waterfront.

What about you? What are you favorite DisneySea snacks?

Hi, I'm a half-Japanese, kawaii-loving girl from the Philippines. In my free time, I juggle writing poetry, making art, and playing with my fur baby. I dream of traveling the world and moving to Japan permanently. But for now, I take pleasure in virtually sharing Japan's beauty and uniqueness.
