This week for the Disney Parks Moms Panel Awards, our panelists have chosen their favorites at Disneyland Resort. The categories were extremely close, with each winner barely squeaking out on top! Let’s take a look and see what our panelists selected as their top choices at the Happiest Place on Earth.

Churro at Disneyland Resort

Favorite Snack
Let’s start with food, because don’t all great things begin with food? This was a race to the bitter end, but it looks like the churro is the winner! These tasty snacks can be picked up at Churro Carts throughout the parks, and they can also be found at the Cozy Cone Motel. Did you know they come in all sorts of flavors? A very close second and third included corn dogs and Mickey beignets. We can’t argue with any of these top three!

Mickey Mouse in Mickey's Toontown at Disneyland Resort

Favorite Disney Character Experience
There were many nominees in this category, but our 2018 winner is Mickey’s House in Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland park. Our panelists can’t get enough of Mickey Mouse and love visiting him at home. Honorable mention goes to Fantasy Faire, where guests can find their favorite princesses waiting to meet them.

Blue Bayou Restaurant at Disneyland Resort

Favorite Restaurant
This was the only runaway winner in our awards this week, and it goes as no surprise because it was also last year’s winner in this category. The honors go to Blue Bayou Restaurant. The panelists love the New Orleans theming and watching Pirates of the Caribbean passenger boats float through the restaurant. This winner should actually be no surprise as it has been a guest favorite since its opening in 1967.

Space Mountain at Disneyland Resort

Favorite Disneyland Resort Attraction
The winner of this category was not decided until the last vote was counted, but our 2018 winner is Space Mountain. Seasonal overlays give guests a new reason to visit this classic attraction, and the Disney Parks Moms Panelists recommend you see them all. Sliding in at an extremely close second and third were Pirates of the Caribbean and Indiana Jones Adventure.

Congratulations once again to this week’s Disneyland Resort winners. Remember, if you are planning a Disney vacation and need tips from those in the know, please visit for a personalized answer from one of our knowledgeable panelists.
