Guests looking for a quick bite to eat can grab a seat and enjoy a beautiful afternoon on Main Street USA. With the delicious smells of popcorn and churros, and the sounds of the Main Street entertainers, the Refreshment Corner is a great place to relax and enjoy your magical surroundings. Characters stop by on occasion, and the pianists like to host sing-alongs and duets with guests! Next time you’re on Main Street, take some time to enjoy all the Refreshment Corner has to offer.
MY RATING – ★★☆☆☆
The refreshment corner offers a wide variety of hot dogs, but not much else. The prices are pretty steep, and you can get more food for your dollar at other restaurants in the park. If you need a drink or a small snack, this is a great place to pick one up, but I wouldn’t recommend it for meals. That being said, I think the Refreshment Corner is one of the best places on Main Street to sit down. There’s a lot of entertainment throughout the day, and you can see parts of three different lands from the patio (Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Main Street USA).

The building is one of the oldest in the park, having been a favorite stop for guests since the 1950’s.
Mary Poppins, Bert, Alice, and the Mad Hatter are frequent visitors to the Refreshment Corner. Keep your eyes pealed and you’ll probably have a photo op!
Rod Miller, an iconic Disneyland ragtime player, performed at the Refreshment Corner from 1969 until his retirement in 2006.
Look carefully in the corner and you’ll see one of the bulbs looks a little different; it’s half red and half white. Allegedly, workers accidentally installed the lights in two different color patterns. To solve the problem, Walt suggested they use a multicolored bulb where the patterns intersected.
