Disneyland Hotel’s Tangaroa Terrace, an island-inspired dining getaway, will close soon for a rather lengthy refurbishment.
Not that we need any excuse to dig into our favorite donuts (at the Disney Parks and in the real world!), but today is National Donut Day, so we’re basically obligated to eat as many donuts as possible.
But let us take a moment to wipe the glaze from our chins so we can bring you some of the coolest, tastiest donuts at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort! Grab a napkin, folks!

Pixar Fest is still very much on in Disneyland Resort! And starting this Friday, June 1st, the Pixar Fest Classic Afternoon Tea Celebration at Steakhouse 55 in the Disneyland Hotel will add to the offerings!
The Pixar Fest Classic Afternoon Tea is now available for booking from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from June 1 through September 2, 2018.

Gourmet Doughnuts arrived at The Coffee House in Disneyland Hotel last summer, and they continue to steal the show in the bakery case!
Case in point: the latest Strawberry Nutella Doughnut.
Every once in a while a menu change at Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World sparks a flame of excitement for the DFB — and this is one of those times! Our Disneyland correspondent Heather (keepin’ it tasty @DiningInDisney on Instagram!) headed to Tangaroa Terrace at Disneyland Hotel recently — only to discover that the new menu she’d been so anxious to try is basically the same menu that can be found at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar (also located at the Disneyland Hotel)!
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 Sunday! We hope you’re enjoying a relaxing summer weekend! Now it’s time to sit back, relax, and check out the latest in Disney food news…

Are you welcoming 2017 at the Disneyland Resort?

When I first heard about the tea offering, I knew I wanted to try it out. Steakhouse 55 has always been one of my favorite Disneyland Resort restaurants. I especially love the atmosphere here, so I was really excited to have a new Steakhouse 55 experience. Breakfast at Steakhouse 55 is what I believe to be one of the very best breakfasts on property. Dinner is wonderful too, so I was sure afternoon tea would be a delight as well!
I tried to book immediately, but it was full almost a month out! So, I booked my month out and waited patiently. Checking in for tea is the same process as a meal. Just head on up to the podium and you will be escorted back to the dining room.
When the time came, I was joined by my best pal. We took the first reservation of the day, which was at noon, and when we got there it was basically empty. By the time we left, there was not one open table! [Read more…]
