How to Eat Your Way Through Disneyland Like You're a Kid Again
For six seasons, millions tuned in to “Tori & Dean” and fell in love with the couple’s good friends Bill Horn and Scout Masterson, who became affectionately known as “The Guncles” (Gay + Uncles) to Tori and Dean’s four adorable children — Liam, Stella, Hattie, and Finn. Now Bill and Scout have their own family with their very own adventures, and when they hit the road, they want to share the experience with Yahoo Travel.

We may be older than your average kid, but we still love Disneyland. Kids of all ages do. Even more so now that we get to visit and see the park through the eyes of our 4-year-old daughter, Simone.
There are so many reasons why people come back to the Disney resorts time and time again: the rides, the characters, the amazing parades, the fireworks show. When we were young, getting to the next ride was the priority. Now that we’re a little older, sitting down to watch the crowds has become our favorite pastime (yep, old people rule!). So what’s that entail? A lot of eating.
Disneyland doesn’t offer the same standard fare across the entire park. Instead, it offers a wide array of foods that must make it impossible for even the most frequent of guests to taste everything.
There’s just one thing to remember: Forget about any diet you’re on, or any hard-and-fast rules you have about what you will and won’t eat. Just enjoy the food. And the experience. By the end of the day, you will have walked what seemed like a thousand miles and sweated out countless calories. So just have fun and EAT.
Here’s how we recently ate our way through a day at Disneyland with Simone:

9:30 a.m. — Mickey Mouse Pancakes
We started our day at the River Belle Terrace in New Orleans Square so that Simone could have the Mickey Mouse Pancakes ($7.99) complete with blueberries for eyes and a strawberry nose. You can get there quickly by jumping on the train at the park’s entrance and riding to New Orleans Square.
