Greetings from the exclusive Club 33 in Disneyland!
New to the Disneyland Resort this season are an adorably festive line of Dia de los Muertos Treats.
For the past few years, Zocalo Park in Frontierland has had a gorgeous display where you can participate in some fun activities and learn about the traditions of Dia de los Muertos.
We are back with DFB Podcast Episode #23!
We told you we are working hard to bring you more Podcasts on a more regular basis so we hope you’re as excited as we are!
What’s It About?
This episode, Brad and I talk about some news from this past week and then jump into some exciting #OnTheList business!
We talk about what #OnTheList — the Disney Food Bucket List — is all about as well as give you a sneak peek at some future items straight off of our own lists!
We bring up Dole Whips (of course), hot link corn dogs, and more…tune in and see if you can guess what our choices are for each Disney park! You may be surprised… .
You can listen to it right here, right now!

Hmmm… so, if your bucket of Disney Popcorn tastes a little different the next time you grab a piping hot batch along Main Street, U.S.A. (or anywhere else in Disney World or Disneyland, for that matter), here’s why…
Pop Secret has been named the “official popcorn” of Disney World and Disneyland, and will be popped up for guests at popcorn carts and kiosks throughout Disney properties. [Read more…]
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?
Star Wars Lands — PLUS CANTINAS! — Coming to Disney World and Disneyland!
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…]
