Disney California Adventure Park’s Paradise Garden Grill is always game for a food celebration, and Halloween Time is no exception! As was the case for Pixar Fest and last year’s Dia de los Muertos, the menu here is an ode to Coco and features flavors from south of the border!
The fun is on at Pixar Fest at Disneyland Resort. With parades, nighttime shows, and a bazillion themed eats, Pixar Fest is shaping up to be one massive, summer-long celebration. And we. are. IN!
At candy kitchens in Disneyland proper and Disney California Adventure Park, guests can bite into sugary, colorful Pixar Cake Pops! We spotted Grape Soda Bottle Caps, the Pixar Ball, Nemo, and Dory!
Starting last week, Disneyland Annual Passholders were able to access Mobile Order at Counter Service locations all over Disneyland Resort. But now, all guests visiting Disneyland are able to utilize the service!
As a refresher, Mobile Order is a process available via the Disneyland app which allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at participating Counter Service restaurants, thereby avoiding time spent in line! (Here’s a tip: if you aren’t seeing the icon allowing you to “Order Food” in your Disneyland app, be sure to install the latest update. )
