Desserts Worth Waiting For at Smokejumpers Grill at Disney California Adventure Park

Smokejumpers Grill near Grizzly Peak in Disney California Adventure Park is a fun counter service spot serving up eats like a Spicy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, a BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich (still tastes like jackfruit…it ain’t BBQ), and Campfire Chili with bison. It’s set in a massive hangar that was used, you know, by smokejumpers!

Our Disneyland correspondent Heather Sievers (@DiningInDisney) enjoyed a bacon cheeseburger and toppings bar back when the Grill first opened in 2015, but when I stopped in, I was looking for two things: the Cobbler Shake and the most epic S’more we’ve ever seen.

The Cobbler Shake is so good. It’s basically a piece of Cranberry Apple Cobbler churned into a Vanilla Shake. It’s as silly and delicious as it sounds! Grab a spoon to scoop out the pieces of cobbler that won’t fit up the straw!

The other treat I was after? A whopper of a S’more, y’all! This beauty has been making the social media rounds, and it’s easy to see why! It’s massive! The top is a white chocolate piece bearing the Grill’s name and logo.

But in between…there’s a tower of Marshmallow. Charred, sweet, pillowy marshmallow!

Seriously. If you try to pull this baby apart, this is what you’ll see: layer after layer of marshmallow!

This S’more is astounding. It’s so good that it’s almost worth the hour that it took for the busy restaurant to get it to me! An hour! For a S’more! At a counter service restaurant! And I’m saying…it’s almost worth that wait!

Seriously. Get this.

    I’m going to Disneyland this month, and I told my husband that I need FOUR things: a hand-dipped corn dog, the sweet corn nuggets and strawberry pie (at the festival), and THIS S’MORE! (Just wondering… does it always take that long to make? Or were they slammed? Or had they run out of ingredients? In any case, I’ll wait an hour to get one if I have to!)

    Jean, the day AJ was there, the restaurant was slammed. She hypothesizes that’s why it took so long. Good luck with your Disneyland food mission!

    I tried the S’more for the first time on Valentine’s Day. It was very good but a pain to get. Apparently, they frequently run out of it so they turn the button on the ordering computer off. They couldn’t figure out how to turn it back on after being our of it for several days. After about 15 minutes I ended up getting it for free because nobody could turn it back on!

    AJ, I’m don’t know if you can do this, but it would be a really big help if as part of your Disney restaurant reviews, you could include their Gluten-Free menu. When we travel with our child who has Celiac Disease, we always need to find out from the chef what gluten-free options are available. So as much as I would be drawn to the Smokejumpers Grill to get one of those wonderful S’Mores based on your review, if they can’t make them with gluten-free graham crackers, then bringing my child there turns into a really cruel experience. Disney is known for their ability to accommodate people with Celiac Disease, which make Disney Parks “must-do” destinations for families with youngsters that have this condition.

    Hi Greg — We’ll absolutely make an effort to get a gallery of gluten-free menus here on DFB, and I’ll make it a focus to get that information in the future. Thank you!
