Check Out The LEMON TREATS at Disneyland’s Jolly Holiday Bakery Café!

Jolly Holiday Bakery Café is a mainstay on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland Resort. It’s got all the Victorian charm of the iconic park’s main drag, plus it’s full of classic and new treats. It’s the place to get a Raspberry Macaron, creative Cupcakes, and everything in between.

You’ve Gotta See This Pineapple Cotton Candy in Disneyland!

Sometimes the creativity of food purveyors really is something special. And at Disneyland’s Downtown Disney, Cotton Candy Creations has got a super fun, sweet option for those late-day sugar cravings: Pineapple Cotton Candy.

But this isn’t your average cotton candy on a paper cone. Because this one is full of fun, fruity details.

Now Spinning Pineapple!

Review: Pineapple Churro at Disneyland Resort’s Castle Churro Cart

Disneyland Resort is the land of Mickey Mouse, princesses, and churros. Okay, maybe that’s not an official designation, but churros are a quintessential part of the Disneyland experience. With so many from which to choose (and even more available during Pixar Fest!), there’s a churro for everyone!

Our Disneyland correspondent, Heather (check her @DiningInDisney on Instagram!), is always up for a new churro, and she brings us the Pineapple Churro today! She picked this up from the churro cart in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Disneyland Annual Passholder Program Sees Two BIG Changes

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is slated to open in Disneyland in summer of 2019. (Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios will follow in late fall 2019.)

And even though that’s a year away, we’re starting to see signs of the changes that will take place around the addition of those Lands now. Case in point: Disneyland Annual Passholders will now see park-specific calendars when they visit disneyland.com or the Disneyland app to check out the block-out dates (if applicable) for their Annual Passport. And you can currently see the calendars as far out as June 2019 (13 months as opposed to the usual 12 months).

Pixar Fest Eats: Inspired Bites at Rancho del Zocalo (Plus NEW NACHOS!) in Disneyland

You already know that Pixar Fest is the place for classic Disneyland Resort snacks with a twist — like many, many versions of the churro and some loaded funnel cakes (like this one inspired by Toy Story). 

Guests joining the friendship party can also grab a full and fun meal at Carnation Cafe, where retro eats like a Fried Bologna Sandwich are satisfying the need for some old-fashioned fun. And who can forget the Remy-approved three-course meal at Cafe Orleans?
