From the Not So Little Chicken Sandwich to the Choco-Smash CANDY Bar, discover The Best Things To Eat and Drink at Disneyland’s Avengers Campus!
Best Things to Eat and Drink at Disneyland’s Avengers Campus
Hi friends! Disneyland’s Avengers Campus is OPEN! I had the chance to visit (thankfully after the HUGE lines died down) and try most of the must-have snacks and sips just in time to share our favorites with YOU! If you follow us on @mydisneyeats you can check out our story highlights and you’ll see us post some of our favorites but I wanted to get the extensive list up here for easy reading AND answer all the questions that have been pouring through our DMs!
A few tips before we get started…
Do yourself a favor and if you know you’re going to be eating at Pym Test Kitchen or Pym Tasting Lab, create a Mobile Food Order through the Disneyland Mobile App! There are stand-by lines now that demand has slowed down, but the Mobile Order ensures you get what you want, when you want it! Simply pick the restaurant and arrival time that suits your schedule, then make your selections. Once you’ve reviewed your details, you can purchase your order using a credit card or debit card. Once you’re at the restaurant during your chosen arrival times, just select the “I’m Here, Prepare My Order” button so the kitchen starts your order. You’ll receive a notification from the app when your food is ready to retrieve at the counter with the “Mobile Order Pick Up” sign. EASY PEASY and a life-saver when you’re dealing with the busy Avengers Campus area.
DON’T FORGET Legacy AP DISCOUNTS
If you were a Disneyland Annual Passholder, don’t forget to ask if there is a Legacy AP Discount! Legacy APs can still receive 10-15% discounts on dining at most Disneyland restaurants. Some kiosks and spots don’t offer, but it’s always best to ask!
Best Things to Eat at Disneyland’s Avengers Campus
Avengers Campus Breakfast
Let’s start from the very beginning! Chances are if you’re going to Disneyland right now, you might just start your morning off trying to hit up Avengers Campus. If you head there hungry, no worries there are some great options! Note: Breakfast is available from 8:30am to 10:45am.
Ever-Expanding Cinna-Pym Toast from Pym Test Kitchen
We tried a few of the breakfasts and this one topped my list! The Ever-Expanding Cinna-Pym Toast is a baked “Pym particle” bread and egg custard with cinnamon-sugar topping, a mini fried egg, smoked bacon, and maple syrup. I picked this one first because it’s pretty tasty and also because it’s a HUGE portion for the money. I think it’s a great substantial breakfast (that you could even split between two adults…get a side of potato bites too, trust me) that is perfect for starting out your Disney day. There is also a Cinna-Pym Mini Toast for the kids.
Impossible Breakfast Sha-warm-up from Shawarma Palace
Now I didn’t get to try it on this Avengers Campus visit, but I have it on good authority that this Plant-based Breakfast Sausage and Egg Omelet Wrap served with Spiced Maple Syrup is a winner. So if you are looking for a breakfast on the go, this one’s for you.
Avengers Campus Breakfast Lunch/Dinner
Now for lunch and dinner there are so many options to choose from at Pym Test Kitchen and Shawarma Palace! Note: Lunch and Dinner options are available from 11:00am to 9:00pm.
New York’s Tastiest from Shawarma Palace
Summon your Avengers victory dance with a stop by Shawarma Palace! TIP: if the cart outside of Web Slingers has a long line (which it is bound to from time to time), head over to Shawarma Palace Too by the Hyperion Theater! There’s also plenty of shaded seating in that area as well. Now that you’re at the cart, I suggest ordering New York’s Tastiest…a Chicken Shawarma Wrap with Coconut Yogurt-Tahini Sauce.
Not so Little Chicken Sandwich from Pym Test Kitchen
Yum, yum, yum! You guys, I really loved this sandwich. The chicken is pounded thin and has a fantastic crunchy breading with a little bit of spice. The sauce is delicious and the slaw is a perfect complement. And let’s not forget the potato bites served along side. I have to be honest that they are some of the best tots I’ve had in a long time. We didn’t leave one tot behind… Also the portion size, as you can see, is not so “little” so it’s great for sharing if you don’t have a huge appetite. There is also a kids’ size sandwich, the Subatomic Chicken Sandwich which simply omits the slaw. A good choice for your chicken sandwich-loving kiddos.
Impossible Spoonful from Pym Test Kitchen
If you’re plant-based, I recommend the Impossible Spoonful with Rigatoni and Ditalini Pastas with Plant-based Meat-balls. The meatballs are DELISH and the pasta is great. My only note is that I thought it could use a little more sauce but overall it was still a great meal and can easily be shared.
Avengers Campus Snacks
Ok now you know we’re REALLY here for the snacks right? BRING ON THE TREATS! And Avengers Campus has some noteworthy ones… Note: these babies are available all day long.
Quantum Pretzel from Pym Test Kitchen
A 453.8 grams, Bavarian-style pretzel with sharp cheddar-beer sauce. Now that’s a way to kick off your day, right? I recommend splitting this gargantuan grub a few ways and you might want to grab an extra cheese sauce because you’re going to want to gargle with it. SO DELISH. I also think it’s a great snack to pair with your trip to Pym Tasting Lab—perhaps with a Pint-sized Pints Mini Beer Flight? We’ll cover that one below…
Choco-Smash CANDY Bar from Pym Test Kitchen
With Dark Chocolate, Peanuts, Caramel, Nougat and Chocolate Brownie…you canNOT go wrong with this celestial-sized candy bar! Again, this is another one you’re going to want to share or pack up to take home…it is truly HUMONGOUS. But it’s also delicious and it will have you daydreaming about it once you’re home from Disney.
Candied Bacon from Pym Test Kitchen
Now you may have heard about this one on the Disney interwebs but it 100% lives up to the hype! At Pym Test Kitchen order a side of their candied bacon and you won’t be sorry. You won’t see it on the menu, but it is meant to be served on the PB3 Superb Sandwich so it is certainly available as a side. I mean, anything bacon is good…but really this bacon is GREAT!
Cosmic Cream Orb from Terran Treats
If you’re going to get ONE treat from Terran Treats, make it the Cosmic Cream Orb. The Sweet Spiral Ration is ok…but this one is better. A crisp Terran Cream Puff filled with Whipped Raspberry Cheesecake, this treat might be intimidating to dig into, but the reward is worth it!
Best Things to Drink at Disneyland’s Avengers Campus
We’ve covered the best things to eat, now let’s talk Avengers Campus Cocktails and Drinks!
Beer Mimosa from Pym Test Kitchen
Pint-sized Pints Mini Beer Flight from Pym Tasting Lab
If you’re not frightened by the $35 price tag, then I highly recommend getting this Oversized Ruler Flight Board with Mini Beer Steins (which you get to take home as a souvenir by the way). When I ordered, the flight came with Endless Summer Hard Seltzer – POG (Passion Fruit, Orange, Guava), SLO Brew Cali-Squeeze Blood Orange Hefeweizen, Elysian Brewing Space Dust IPA and Garage Brewing Marshmallow Milk Stout. It was a GREAT way to try out FOUR of the most popular brews on tap at Pym Tasting Lab.
X-Periment from Pym Tasting Lab
If a cocktail is more your speed, I recommend the X-Periment. With Patrón Silver Tequila, Mango and Habanero Syrups and Mango Flavor-filled Boba, this cocktail is sure to check off your Avengers Campus to-do list.
Avengers Campus Q&A
Over on @mydisneyeats I asked you guys if you had any questions about Avengers Campus food and because the questions were so good, I wanted to get them posted here!
Tastiest thing on the avengers campus in your opinion?
Oh gosh this is such a hard question. I think I had the strongest reactions to the Not so Little Chicken Sandwich and to the Candied Bacon! I expected the chicken sandwich to just be a chicken sandwich, but I was so surprised by how crunchy and delicious it was and how all of the flavors came together. And the Candied Bacon? Oh man, it’s just so good.
How was the chicken sandwich?
I think I just answered that above but I thought it was just so good. I loved all of the flavors and would order it again in a heartbeat.
Not food related but what does PYM stand for?
“Pym” is actually not an acronym but rather the last name of Doctor Henry Jonathan “Hank” Pym from the Marvel Universe. First introduced to us in Ant-Man, Hank was an entomologist and physicist who developed the Ant-Man Suit after discovering Pym Particles.
As a nod to Dr. Pym and Pym Particles, the Pym Test Kitchen features Ant-Man and The Wasp’s size-defying fare and the Pym Tasting Lab is an innovative beverage laboratory, including specialty craft beers and beer cocktails.
What is the just try food?
I would say don’t leave Avengers Campus until you have tried the Not so Little Chicken Sandwich and the Choco-Smash CANDY Bar.
Fave sweet and fave savory dish?
I think just based on what I’ve said above, it would have to be the Choco-Smash CANDY Bar and the Not so Little Chicken Sandwich.
Can you get anything non-alcoholic from the bar?
Unfortunately it looks like the only non-alcoholic drinks that are served at Pym Tasting Lab are mini cans of Coke, Diet Coke and Sprite and of course bottled water. But next door at Pym Test Kitchen you can find a Coca-Cola® Freestyle machine with assorted Coca-Cola® offerings featuring Pingo Doce, where you can whip up a number of delicious drink concoctions.
How far in advance did you have to make your food reservations?
We arrived about 30 minutes after opening and walked straight to Avengers Campus. About 15 minutes later the mobile orders were all full for breakfast. So I would say if you want breakfast, snag a mobile order slot right at park opening. Since lunch and dinner slots open up later in the day you just have to watch and wait for those to open up (I think it was around 11am for lunch and 4pm for dinner?), but if you’re watching for them they’re pretty easy to snag!
Was the shawarma line really long?
There were times that the main Shawarma Palace cart line was really long, but if you have a hankering for shawarma and just can’t wait, just head around the corner by Hyperion Theater to Shawarma Palace Too for what is usually a much shorter line.
