10 California Adventure Meals for $10: Award Wieners
You’ll find this winner in Hollywood Land with a shaded seating area nearby. From chili cheese dogs to BBQ hot links and Italian sausages, everything on the menu here is priced at about $10 or less. You can also find hot dogs near Toy Story Midway Mania.
Note that the kid meal comes with a turkey dog and my kids were not fans. While it’s still a hot dog, we stick to the all beef ones at home and my littles could taste the difference.
10 California Adventure Meals for $10: Fiddler, Fifer & Practical
Where is this place? You probably walked right past it on Buena Vista Street as you entered the park.

10 California Adventure Meals for $10: Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta

10 California Adventure Meals for $10: Corn Dog Castle
Also located at Paradise Gardens Park, it’s the famed Disneyland corn dogs you can chow down on at California Adventure. It’s under $10 and comes with a bag of chips or sliced apples. You can also order your corn dog a la carte.
10 California Adventure Meals for $10: Cozy Cone Motel
Need a quick place to rest? Each of the Cozy Cone’s offer a different snack option and while I completely consider churros, popcorn and pretzel bites with cheese sauce a good dinner, you should consider grabbing Chili Con Queso for your under $10 meal. The beef chili is served in a bread cone and topped with cheese and corn chips to warm you up during a crisp evening in Cars Land.
10 California Adventure Meals for $10: Flo’s V8 Cafe
Get your engines running right over to Flo’s. A perfect place to rest and enjoy the scenery in Cars Land; you can get anything from their menu for around $10 including the classic roast beef and cheddar with a side of coleslaw. I’ve also tried their citrus turkey salad and found the portion to be plenty big. Need more healthy ideas for Disneyland dining? Don’t miss our Healthy Disneyland Dining Guide.
