Offered within the My Disney Experience app, Mobile Order allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at participating Counter Service Restaurants around Disney World. Upon arrival to the restaurant, guests using Mobile Order can then bypass the ordering queue and go straight to a designated Pick Up Counter to get their food.

Walt Disney World released a whole bunch of Rose Gold treats a little while back (and several are still available). And the Rose Gold Churro made waves in Disneyland recently.

But the Rose Gold Macaron is — so far — unique to Disneyland Resort… and our friend Heather (@diningindisney on Instagram) snagged one!

Disney California Adventure

Disneyland Resort will debut an entirely new Super Hero-themed land in 2020, with further anticipated experiences beyond that.

As part of the evolution of Disney California Adventure park, the transformation will result in a “completely immersive Super Hero universe,” bringing together The Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, and the Avengers. The new land will be anchored by the Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction, in the current “a bug’s land” area.

Note that “a bug’s land” will close entirely in late summer to make way for this new land. See ya later Chew-Chew Train!

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!

The space is full of industrial details like exposed duct work and rivets.

There are also personal touches, like these mugs left behind by the building’s previous occupants.

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!

S'more 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.

Where can you find your favorite S’more treat in the World or Land? Let us know!
