Of course, that’s not the whole story… not by a long shot. River Belle Terrace has quite the history in Disneyland, existing under its current name since 1971 (and the location itself operated under other names from the park’s first year). [Read more…]

News: Disney Star Wars Land Restaurant Details and Concept Art!

So, did ya catch The Wonderful World of Disney special celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Disneyland last night with your Mickey Ears proudly strapped to your head (or was that just me?)?

If so, then you may have seen Harrison Ford introduce new concept art for Star Wars Land! We were especially excited to see that these included a few renderings for dining options coming when Star Wars Lands open in both Disney World and Disneyland.

After the D23 Expo this past Summer, we previewed a few of these experiences for you in this Disney Star Wars Land Cantina post, but now we have even more details! (And we made our case way back in 2013 for WHY Disney needed a Cantina here!)

It all went by pretty fast, so here’s a chance to feast your eyes on some of the images a little longer. While we hope to have higher resolution images to share soon, here’s a batch of pics taken straight from the ol’ telly. [Read more…]

Get ‘em Before They’re Gone! Ice Cream Nachos at Disneyland’s Golden Horseshoe

Have a hankerin’ for some Ice Cream Nachos?!?

Of course you do! I mean, really… who doesn’t? But where can a Disneyland guest score some, since they’re not showing up on any menus these days? Well, just like days of yore, you CAN still grab them — at least for now — at The Golden Horseshoe.

You see, all the components of the ice cream nachos are still in the house: mint chocolate chip, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream along with hot fudge, strawberry sauce, chocolate chips, whipped cream and cherries served together on a bed of waffle “chips”… all courtesy of the three Waffle Cup Sundaes that remain on the everyday menu.

Dining in Disneyland Review: The New Cove Bar Expansion in Disney California Adventure

Disney California Adventure has removed the Donald Duck meet and greet gazebo on Paradise Pier for a very good reason; Cove Bar expansion! The new seating is adjacent to the existing bar. (If you are a Donald fan, don’t fret… Donald has been moved over to Buena Vista Street and he now has Daisy there as his companion.)

Welcome Back to Cove Bar!

Welcome Back to Cove Bar!

I’m sure your first thought is, “Awesome, more seats, less wait!” But alas, this is far from the truth. I recently when to check out the expansion and some new menu items.  It was a Friday just before noon and we still waited 45 minutes for a party of 2.  Personally I think the Cove Bar is worth the wait, but I also think that if they filled the whole pier with Cove Bar seating, there would still be a long wait.  It’s THAT good.  You can see that others agree with me.  This is the line we waited in.

Dining in Disneyland: Gourmet Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Treats

The Disneyland Resort changes their gourmet treats monthly.  The gourmet treat trio usually includes a Marshmallow Wand, a Caramel Apple, and a Mickey Crispy Treat.  Sometimes there is a bonus item like a packaged chocolate bark!  January’s flavor of the month is Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie and it’s amazing.

My take home project included the Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Marshmallow Wand, a Mickey Crispy, and the Chocolate Bark.  Let’s start with my very favorite of the three: the Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Bark.  This stuff is 100% addicting.  If you are a peanut butter fan, you’ll probably want to keep the entire 7 ounces to yourself and not share one single bite.
