News: Cove Bar and Ariel’s Grotto Closures and Renovations for Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure

HUGE NEWS out of Disneyland today, my friends! It has just been announced that Pixar Pier — which is coming to Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure Park — will bring serious changes for favorites Cove Bar and Ariel’s Grotto — including closures and renovations.

Pixar Pier will be made up of four new neighborhoods representing four Pixar stories. The highlight of The Incredibles neighborhood will be the new Incredicoaster (transforming the current California Screamin’, which will close on January 8th).

Toy Story and Inside Out will also be represented in their own neighborhoods and will include a new family-friendly ride in the Inside Out area (opening season not yet announced).

Several Pixar stories will be represented in the fourth neighborhood, which will bring a new look to Mickey’s Fun Wheel (each gondola will feature a different Pixar character). The Games of the Boardwalk will likewise be re-themed with Pixar characters. January 8th is again the closing date for Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Games of the Boardwalk, and Sideshow Shirts so the spots can begin their transformation. [Read more…]

Disney FrankenFoods: Fried Banana Sundae at Disney California Adventure

When awesome Disney food just isn’t enough, the mad scientists of the DisneyFoodBlog world get to work. And what results is pure Disney (food) magic: Disney FrankenFoods.

FrankenFoods come alive when we mix and match some of our favorite Disney Parks foods, creating new combinations (and possibly opening portals in the universe of food… no one knows for sure). All we know is that it’s fun (and usually delicious).

Our good friend Heather Sievers of @DiningInDisney fame recently embarked on a quest to build a Fried Banana Sundae. Here’s how she did it.

Heather started this FrankenFoods journey at Award Wieners in Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure.
