Disneyland has so many places to choose from to eat at. Different themes, foods and fun! Today I would like to talk about a location on Main Street U.S.A. called Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe.

Dining Tips at the Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe

Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe is a newer restaurant at Disneyland. It opened in January 2012.

Where does the time go? I surprised myself when I realized they opened 5 years ago already!







Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe is themed after the 1965 movie Mary Poppins. (Mary Poppins: 50th Anniversary Edition (DVD + Digital Copy) 

Have you seen it? If not check it out. It is a wonderful movie! 

In addition to the movie, you can get and read the story Mary Poppins.

The weather vane on the roof outside is Mary Poppins. Inside, on the walls are silhouettes of the movie characters. Be sure to check out the stained glass windows when you walk up. They have the penguins in the center of the glass.

Furthermore, when you are waiting in line inside, another item to make sure to check out the tree artwork on the wall. It has lines from the movie written on what looks like a ribbon winding through the branches. There are even some pictures painted in the tree of items from the movie. For example, the penguins standing in front of a circus tent. Mary Poppins carpet bag, umbrella, and hat. And don’t forget the chimneys. In my opinion, Disney did a great job with the theming of this restaurant.



Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe is a restaurant on my dining on a budget post. It is in the $14.99 or less category.

Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe is a quick service restaurant. Which means you go up to the counter and order then wait for your items. If you go before 10:30 a.m., you can get fresh baked items with coffee and tea. Some of these items are a Blueberry Muffin and a Chocolate chip muffin. They also have espresso here too! There is a nice display case right at the order counter to tempt you… uh I mean, so you can see what options they have for pastries.


If you go after 10:30 a.m., you can get lunch items. Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe has various sandwiches, soups, and salads to choose from. I have tried the oven roasted turkey sandwich. It is served on toasted ciabatta bread. This sandwich was delicious! One I would definitely order again. In addition to the sandwiches, it comes with house chips. They are like kettle chips. Not sure if they make them themselves, however,  they tasted like they were freshly made.

Breakfast is not the only time to get a pastry at Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe, you can usually get a pastry of some sort during lunch time too. During our last trip, I was able to get one of the 60th cupcakes. They were generous with the portion size. It was a huge cupcake with tons of frosting and the cupcake was decorated so pretty! Sometimes I have a hard time digging in when it is so pretty or if Mickey is on the item. Therefore, just take a picture and dig in and enjoy!

Melisa has had a love for Disneyland that started at a very young age. Her family traveled to Disneyland every year or two when she was growing up. As she got older, she began to read anything she could get her hands on regarding Disneyland. If you ask her anything about Disneyland, she is always willing to share her knowledge. As a former Manager of a video store, she has a wealth of knowledge about movies as well. In addition to these experiences, she also loves to take landscape photography, do crafting, bake cakes for her nieces and nephews. But most of all, she enjoys reading the Bible.


    • Hi Keri! Thank you for asking. I did some checking into it. I found that they offer an Allergy friendly menu at this location. It is available upon request. I would assume that they have some gluten free options. I will see if I can find more information out directly from Disney. I do know they are very accommodating at the sit down restaurants. When you make reservations you can tell them of any allergies and you can request to talk to chef. They will come up with a few different dishes to choose from. Another thing that I love about Disney. 🙂

      • I found a page on the Disneyland Guest Services site that looks like it answers you question in more depth. You can check it out here. I hope it helps!
