When DCA’s Cove Bar closed on January 8 as part of Paradise Pier’s transition to Pixar Pier, fans of the bar’s innovative (and beautiful) drinks (including the fun secret menu!) lamented the loss of this popular spot. What would become of their technicolor concoctions?
You know it! You love it! You have to have it! It’s Dole Whip (affectionately called Pineapple Soft Serve a lot of the time), and it’s been a staple of Walt Disney World for years. Of course you know where you can find it in Adventureland at Aloha Isle (Disney World) and the Tiki Juice Bar (Disneyland) in the shadows of the Tiki Room (you can even bring your sweet treat inside to eat during the show!).
Happy New Year!

And as we get ready to ring in the New Year with party hats, noisemakers, and a toast, we’re taking a few minutes to review some of the biggest Disney Food News stories of 2017!

Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re talking about the Hidden Gem Dining Spots at Disneyland!
Disneyland is home to some really great food and today we’re sharing some of our favorite hidden gems! If you’re headed to Disneyland for the first time you might not know about some of the more “secret” spots to find great food.

Unless you live under a rock somewhere, you know that the latest iteration of the Star Wars franchise — The Last Jedi — opens today, and you know the Disney Parks are leaping into the merchandise battle with amazing Star Wars souvenirs. (And we aren’t complaining!)
Our pal Carlye Wisel (find her at CarlyeWisel.com!) hooked us up with some pics of a Captain Phasma Stein that You. Must. Acquire.
It comes with your choice of grapes or pineapple — but while we appreciate some healthy eats from time to time, that’s not really why you’re buying it.
While you’re checking out ALL THE FOOD around the Festive Foods Marketplace for Disneyland’s Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure, you might also want to be on the lookout for additional offerings around Paradise Pier!
In celebration of ¡Viva Navidad! throughout the Festival, look for outdoor vending stops offering items such as Elote (street-style corn with mayonnaise, parmesan cheese and tajin — AAAAH SO GOOOOD), Horchata (a sweet rice beverage with vanilla and cinnamon), Jamaica (traditional sweetened hibiscus tea), Chicharrón (a puffed wheat wagon wheel served with tapatio and lime wedges), and Strawberry Paleta.
Additionally, Paradise Garden Grill is serving a special seasonal menu until the Festival ends on January 7, 2018. Selections include a Trio of Street Tacos with carnitas, carne asada, and chicken, House-made Pozole, a Torta al Pastor served on a soft telera roll, and beverages including Sangria. You can check out the full menu here on our Festival of Holidays Menu Page.
Hey, Disneylanders! If you’re in the mood for some aromatic holiday cheer, make your way to the Grand Californian, where the hotel’s Holiday Gingerbread House is again completed!
The pastry chefs (and in this case, they can also be considered construction workers and engineers, I’d say!) have been hard at work in the lobby, constructing a beautiful Craftsman-inspired replica of the hotel itself once again for 2017, with perfect shaping and details! [Read more…]
The holidays at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are in full swing, with merchandise, food, and drinks tailor made to create holiday cheer for guests of all ages. And with the Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure, there are more eats than ever!

Visions of Sugarplums (and much more!) sure are dancing all around Disneyland for the Holidays!
