Cove Bar‘s job is to remind you that you’re in the Happiest Place on Earth, over and over again. And it does that job well.
That’s why it’s #OnTheList this week!
So, you’re up in space (I know — “What else is new,” right?) and suddenly you have a hankerin’ for a slice of pizza. Before space pilot Redd Rockett came along, your mission would have been… well, impossible.
But not anymore, thanks to Redd Rockett’s Pizza Port in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland!
You see, the backstory for Pizza Port revolves around the difficulty experienced by astronauts of finding a “decent pizza” in space (#SpaceProblems — you know how it goes). That is, until Redd Rockett decided to solve that problem once and for all by setting up a pizza port in the sector. Its success was so great that Redd opened up a second location right here on Earth, in Tomorrowland, located near Space Mountain. [Read more…]
As though Jungle Cruise Skippers aren’t busy enough preparing the upcoming Skipper Canteen at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom… they’ll also be helping Disneylanders start their day at the newly announced Jungle Cruise Sunrise Safari Breakfast!
Taking place on select dates from September 21 through December 2, 2015, guests can enjoy breakfast on the African veldt of the Jungle Cruise attraction in Disneyland! [Read more…]
As a Disney fan (OK… borderline maniac Disney freak) and a D23 member, I consider the D23 Expo a must-attend event. In addition to the informative exhibits, amazing shopping, creative costumes, and fabulous people watching, I always look forward to the D23 Archives exhibit.
Seeing original pieces of Disneyland history up close and personal is such a treat. This year’s archives exhibit was so wonderfully done. I spent most of my visit drooling over the display of photos, menus and other original paraphernalia from the restaurants and snack spots of Disneyland’s first years.
Let’s go back in time and take look! (I apologize in advance for some of the photos and shadows. The display area was very dark and the photos overlapped each at other causing some shadowing.)
Let’s start with the Tahitian Terrace which was located behind the Tiki Room in Adventureland. It opened in 1962 and closed in 1993. The dinner theater offered guests food and entertainment inspired by the French Polynesian Islands.
How great is the artwork on the menu??? I love it!
We’re taking in a meal at a classic stop in Disneyland — The Village Haus!
I don’t get to this corner of Disneyland nearly as much as I should. It’s waaaaaaaaay in the back corner — head into Fantasyland and hang a left.
But since a very similar restaurant exists in Walt Disney World — Pinocchio Village Haus in Fantasyland — I usually find myself skipping THIS Village Haus in lieu of one of my favorite spots, like Cafe Orleans. [Read more…]
Sooo… official news announcing the new Skipper Canteen Jungle Cruise restaurant coming to Magic Kingdom’s Adventureland wasn’t enough for ya?
Well, then, let’s see if THIS does the trick… A REAL, TRUE STAR WARS CANTINA will be coming to both Disney World AND Disneyland as part of the Star Wars-themed Lands announced for BOTH coasts at the D23 Expo! We’ve been dreaming about this for years!
Here is a glimpse of the concept art for the Star Wars Cantina!
Disneyland and Hollywood Studios will be the homes for each 14-acre expansion “where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.” According to Bob Iger, “We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever. These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.” [Read more…]
It’s LITTLE RED WAGON time!!
And there’s no better place to grab your Hand-Dipped Corn Dogs in Disneyland! [Read more…]
The Disneyland Resort has gone all out for Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration. Special decor, special merchandise, and most importantly, special food!
On a recent visit to Plaza Inn, I noticed an intriguing dessert that I had to try, Diamond Celebration Chocolate Cake. Honestly, I bought this out of curiosity because it sounded like a bizarre mix of flavors to me.
The description alone seemed crazy: Chocolate Cake layered with Passion Fruit, Mango & Banana Mousse, Apricot Compote and smothered with a Milk Chocolate Caramel Ganache and Crunchy Chocolate Pearls. Since I’m not a huge chocolate fan, what actually sold me were all of the tropical fruits involved. [Read more…]
Aloha! Ahoy! AHA! Are you ready to raise a glass in honor of Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary — and the no-longer-with-us Tahitian Terrace Restaurant – at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar?
The Tahitian Terrace Diamond Luau will be taking place at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel on August 10th and 11th. This ticketed event will feature the Tahitian Terrace Tribute Show (the restaurant and show closed in 1993), an historical overview presentation by Disney Imagineers, and, of course, food! The menu will [Read more…]
