There are multiple seating areas around the hall.

The food buffet is to the left of the entrance, through a turnstile.

There’s a bar onsite, and drinks machines serving soda and juice too. 

But the joy is in the fun atmosphere, with hundreds of happy hungry Disney-loving families enjoying the feast.

La Cantina kids play area

 Ask to be seated near the kids play area if you have young ones in tow, so you can keep them in view while you finish up your dinner. 

Kids can play CARS video games on the interactive tables.

There’s also Disney CARS coloring in pages for kids to do. 

This kept Ned and Jack busy while I finished my dinner and breakfast in peace.

Restaurant La Cantina Buffet Price

Disneyland Paris food prices comparison

The buffet price is on par to normal Disney buffet prices  – when you compare it to buying food on the go inside the parks, the price of the all-you-can-eat buffet – including a drink and dessert – is great value. 

  • Adults – €30.99  (includes a cold drink or mineral water) 
  • Children – €16.99 for children 3-11 years (includes Vittel bottled water, or a Minute Maid orange or apple drink, or milk) 

image -la cantina disneyland paris drinks barcode

Note: Disney drink fountains 

The drinks machines are automatic, and unfortunately the fill tap shuts off well before the cup is filled.

If you try and press the go button again, it flashes a sign telling you that your allocation is up.

We figured out why – there’s a barcode on the bottom of the cup that connects to your account.

This is what controls your access.

Sadly, there’s no free refills around here. 

**You can also buy more drinks if you need. 

image -la cantina disneyland paris drinks menu

Disney Drink prices

Soft drink/ soda costs €4.09 – try Coca Cola, Vanilla coke, Coca Cola with lemon or lime, Sprite, raspberry Powerade, Fuze tea.

There’s water or mineral water – small for  €3.99 or large for €4.79

And Minute Maid fruit juices in orange, pineapple or apple flavors for €4.09

But the most popular question is: Is the Paris Disney dining plan worth it?

The answer is YES.

A Disney Dining plan is always worth it.

(And trust us. As committed budget travelers, we do the math).

Disney Dining Plan advantages

Buying a Paris Disneyland dining plan means you don’t have to think about spending money on food once you arrive, so it’s a great idea for those visiting Paris Disneyland on a budget.

Plus, the kids can eat what THEY want, so there’s no waste – like Jack above. 

If you can, book a special package deal stay and save money. 

The Disneyland Paris half board plan is the best one – it includes:

  • the Hotel Buffet breakfast, plus
  • either dinner OR lunch per day. 

That’s all you need.

Tip for Disney Paris hotel meals

Eating a BIG breakfast at the Disneyland hotel buffet will keep you and the kids going for hours.

Depending on the ages of the kids in tow, we either do a late lunch around 3pm (and take some snacks such as fruit, or muesli bars with us to keep us going), or book an early dinner around 5pm. 

We find eating two big meals a day at Disney, with a few snack breaks, is perfect and means we don’t waste precious time that would be better spent on Paris Disneyland rides or in shops. 

Hot tip: The MagicPass card entitles you to one buffet breakfast at YOUR hotel but it can also be used to deduct the value of this breakfast from the price of a breakfast at one of the Disneyland Paris restaurants at Disney Parks. or the New York style sandwiches in Disney Village for breakfast only.

What are the Disneyland Paris standard meal plan restaurants? 

The Standard Meal plan at Disneyland Paris gives you a choice of restaurants including:

Or one of these restaurants at one of the Disneyland Paris Hotels

The all you can eat buffet includes one non-alcoholic cold beverage.  

You can also swap and try other Disneyland Paris restaurant menus at Disney Paris restaurants other than the ones listed above, by taking your Magic Pass card along with you – they’ll deduct the value of your standard buffet meal from the price of the meal you choose at this new location, and you pay the difference. 

Note: Any changes or additions to the menu must be paid for separately.

How to book a Paris Disneyland restaurant?

This is the trickiest part of planning your Disneyland Paris itinerary.

There’s NO online booking service, so when you are planning your itinerary, the only way to book is to call the Disney Dining Reservation Service.

If you like to live on the edge, and don’t want to make reservations for your meal plans before you arrive, you need to book your table in advance when you arrive:

  • at your Hotel Concierge service
  • at City Hall in the Disneyland parks
  • or call the Dining Reservation service by pressing the Red Mickey button on the phone in your room or by calling from your mobile on +33 (0) 1 60 30 40 50. 

Guests with MagicPass or meal vouchers still need to book.
