If you’re completing any of the RunDisney races at Disneyland, one thing is for sure – you are going to be HANGRY afterwards!

Luckily there’s no shortage of restaurants at the Disneyland Resort, and for some of my favorite places you don’t even need park tickets!  So if you need to refuel and recharge, check out these carb-o-licious or protein packed options, all located at the hotels of the Disneyland Resort or Downtown Disney District!

Top Restaurants for After the Disneyland Half Marathon

Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar – This themed bar located at the Disneyland Hotel is a popular weekend spot for a tasty drink and a bite to eat.  I always order the Panko-crusted Long Beans. [Not open until 11:30am – but if you’re really hungry, mobile order from Tangeroa Terrance next door, and then come back to Trader Sam’s after 11:30am for your umbrella drink.]
Storytellers Cafe – If you get to this woodsy themed restaurant inside Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa before 1pm, the brunch buffet can’t be beat!  Pile up your plate with muffins, bagels, sausage, and of course, Mickey Waffles. (Reservations highly recommended.)

Naples Ristorante e Bar– The ultimate location at Downtown Disney for carby goodness!  Any of the pizza or pasta items should do nicely, but my favorite dishes are the Panzerotti and a classic Margherita Pizza.  If you are celebrating after the Half Marathon, I recommend the Italian Margarita!  [Not open until 11:00am]

Jazz Kitchen Coastal Grill and Patio – If you’re okay with a little heat, you’ll want to try the Spicy Grilled Chicken “Macaroni & Cheese” Bowl. I also enjoy the House Grind Bacon Burger. Of course, they also make the best Hurricanes on Disneyland Resort property.
Cheers! And good luck with your race!
