Greetings fellow Mouse Fans!
Disney is known for offering fun, flavorful, quick service food options at their theme parks. So, of course, when Cars Land opened in June 2012, a new opportunity arose to continue this tradition. The Cozy Cone Motel is one of the most distinctive sights in Radiator Springs, and now, one of the most delicious!
Serving up "Cone Food", each Cone offers a different menu. Pop "Cone" is a popular option with the favor varying each day. Soft Serve Ice Cream cones (obviously!) are available at another cone, and Chili "Cone" Queso at yet another! The other two cones serve churro bites and pretzel bites, respectively. Each cone also offers unique soft drink or adult beverage. You will see any guests walking around with souvenir "cone" cups as well!

Flo's V8 Cafe is the other counter service option in Cars Land. Flo's has an extensive menu of American classics such as NY Strip, Turkey Breast and Pork Loin. But this is not your average diner food! The Pork Loin has a Coca Cola BBQ sauce, the Turkey Breast has a Citrus Marinade, and the Veggie Bake is a veggie shepherds pie with Bulgar Wheat and Soy Crumbles! I had the Turkey Breast and it was delectable.
Elsewhere in California Adventure, the greatest variety of counter service options can be found in Pacific Wharf. Mexican, Asian, and San Francisco classics can all be found around a large outdoor seating area. The perfect option for a family with varied tastes! Paradise Pier also offers variety of quick service options including Pasta, Pizza, Mediterranean Skewers (my personal favorite!), and Salads.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Disney California Adventure offers the best quick service dining options of any of the Disney theme parks I've visited. It may even edge out perennial favorite – Epcot!
Be well and make magic wherever you go!
