Over on the West Coast, Guests visiting Disneyland and Disney California Adventure can dine on dishes featuring the best flavors of California. They can also enjoy specialty churros and Disneyland’s most iconic dish, the Monte Cristo sandwich.

Disneyland and Disney World each have their own unique offerings that you can’t find at the other. However, there is one fantastic dining spot they both have in common. That is the amazing ice cream spot Salt & Straw. Salt & Straw is located in Downtown Disney at Disneyland and in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World.

Salt & Straw is known for not only making its own ice cream, but for its truly one-of-a-kind flavors. Guests can enjoy housemade options like Honey Lavender, Strawberry Honey Balsamic With Black Pepper, and Arbequina Olive Oil. The Disney Springs location also offers Florida flavors like Salty Donut Guava and Cheese and Roasted Pineapple Coconut Sherbet. Downtown Disney has options like Pear Gorgonzola and Coffee & Love Nuts.
