Well, I’ll be dipped.
So there I was, walking around Disneyland taking in all the sights and tastes for the 24-Hour Kickoff of the Disneyland Diamond Resort Celebration, when I stumbled upon THIS piece of gorgeousness.
The Macaroni & Cheese Bread Cone is BACK! Well, at Disneyland, that is! And you can find it at the Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure.
So, why is this such a huge deal? Well, in case you missed it last summer, a little backstory: last August we reviewed the Macaroni and Cheese Bread Cone at Disney WORLD found in Hollywood Studios at the concession stands for the Fantasmic! nighttime spectacular.
And it was quite a hit. Because it’s a HUGE pile of MAC AND CHEESE. Topped with BACON. Stuffed in BREAD. Like this…
However, probably no more than two days after we reviewed it, it was pulled from the Fantasmic menu.
Gone. Vamoose. Finito!
No big drama or anything, just a regular menu change and pretty much par for the course when you’re scoping out food at Disney World. But a major bummer nonetheless, what with it being MAC AND CHEESE. Topped with BACON. Stuffed in BREAD and all.
So when I saw that sign last week, I knew I had to grab it. Lesson learned: far be it from me to let a moment with the Mac and Cheese Bread Cone slip through my fingers. Pay no mind to the fact that
the name is slightly different at Cozy Cone — it’s the Bacon Mac & Cheese Cone out west, instead of the Macaroni and Cheese Cone as it was labeled at Disney World. It’s the same glorious pile of hot, uber-cheesy mac inside that surprisingly soft bread cone.
Now, I’m sure you noticed the same thing I noticed: the Bacon Mac & Cheese Cone is on a TEMPORARY SIGN. That means it could disappear again at any minute (although, the Cast Member I spoke with thought it might be around for a few months to come). The “permanent” menu (yes, in quotes, since we know anything and everything is subject to change) still features other meals-in-a-bread-cone like the Chili Cone Queso. But that Bacon Mac & Cheese…
How I WISH it would be deemed a keeper, ’cause I’d sure call it one. Fingers crossed!! And a huge thanks to Anthony Hays for double checking that the cone is still there since I left last week!
