Dining in Disneyland: Holiday Funnel Cake at Disneyland’s Stage Door Cafe

Holiday Time at the Disneyland Resort is here! You know what that means???? It’s time to taste all of the things!

When this year’s list of specialty items came out, I was definitely most excited for the Holiday Funnel Cake from the Stage Door Cafe at Disneyland.  Located in Frontierland, the Stage Door Cafe is just around the corner from the Golden Horseshoe.  This counter service gem serves up some of Disneyland’s classic favorites.

The Stage Door Cafe is known for its small, but perfect menu!  In addition to their famous Hand Dipped Corn Dogs (yes, the same ones served at the Little Red Wagon on Main Street!),  they also offer Chicken Breast Nuggets, Fish & Chips, and House Made Funnel Cakes.

Exclusive Dining Experiences at Disneyland’s 21 Royal Street

Late last year, information began to surface regarding 21 Royal Street, a private dining venue available to members of the exclusive Club 33 at Disneyland. There was some chatter, however, that 21 Royal Street might be available to the public, and not just Club members.

Review: Award Wieners in Disney California Adventure

Award Wieners in Disney California Adventure serves up gourmet hot dogs and sausages that are just a little outside the box. So if you decide to stop in for a bite, bring your sense of adventure with you!

I love that Award Wieners often runs specials to coincide with whatever the Disney Movie du jour is. We’ve enjoyed some fun, film-inspired eats and drinks here, like the Teriyaki Street Dog and Coconut Milk Tea that honored Big Hero 6. And who could forget the Wizard Blizzard and Yellow Brick Roll, to mark the opening of Oz, the Great and Powerful? [Read more…]

Guest Review: Beach Side Bonfire Buffet at PCH Grill in Disneyland’s Paradise Pier Resort

DFB is welcoming guest author Lori Hope with a review of the PCH Grill. Nestled in Disneyland’s Paradise Pier Hotel, this restaurant serves up breakfast and dinner. Today, we are checking out the bonfire buffet, which debuted this Summer!

Atmosphere

Disney’s PCH Grill at Disneyland’s Paradise Pier has created a delicious Beach Side Bonfire nightly buffet. We usually head to Storytellers Cafe, but we were staying at Paradise Pier and we are always excited to try something new. Paradise Pier is a bit out of the way if you are in the parks, but it is just at the end of Downtown Disney so it isn’t too far.

We made an advance dining reservation, but it was not too crowded when we went. The staff greeted us right away and we had no issues adding another guest to our party.
