Mmmmm! Lobster Roll a Big Hit at Harbour Galley at Disneyland Park

One of the most popular new tastes at Disneyland park is a warm, buttery lobster roll now on the menu at Harbour Galley in Critter Country. If you can’t get to the park, Chef Scott Mancino shows us how he makes the delectable stuffed roll – easy enough, but it’s the abundance of fresh herbs (chives, parsley, tarragon, chervil) in the lobster salad and a generous slather of seasoned butter on the bun that takes this one over the top.

You can go with lobster or a mixture of seafood – crab, shrimp are also delicious with this recipe.

Happy eating!

  • This is great. As a non meat eater, I was sad when the popcorn shrimp went from here. The seafood options fro Rancho Zocalo went and the Sushi Bar in the hotel went. Having a lobster roll in the Harbor Galley gives a great quick lunch option in the park. Fantastic!

  • I told my boyfriend that Disneyland is serving lobster rolls now and his eyes lit up! Can’t wait to try these in November, they look phenomenal!!

  • Very excited for,the recipe. I have an entire section on my iPad dedicated to Disney recipes. I think I’ll have one of these on Sunday while we’re running around the park doing Mouse Adventure.

  • Oh, Pam! Thank you so much for this recipe. I am going to make it for my family and tell them my friend Pam gave me the recipe.
