Monte Cristo Sandwich at Cafe Orleans

Yep — there is so much good stuff in Disneyland that we had to split this one into two episodes, or we’d all run the risk of overstimulation! :-D

In this first video, we’ll start you off at River Belle Terrace. This classic spot has been around for ages, but these days, it’s table service.

Pimento Grilled Cheese — Up Close

But then, the second story involved super cheesy Mac and Cheese layered between crunchy Grilled Bread. Yep, that’s A Layer of Carbs on Top of More Carbs. And we are completely fine with that.
