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. )

Mobile Order Locations Announced for Disneyland (PLUS Early Access NOW for Annual Passholders!)

Ordering and picking up your food at a Counter Service restaurant in Disney World has never been easier thanks to the introduction of Mobile Order: a process that allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at participating Counter Service restaurants, thereby avoiding time spent in line. So it was great news when it was revealed that Mobile Order will be coming to Disneyland, too, via the Disneyland app!

Desserts Worth Waiting For at Smokejumpers Grill at Disney California Adventure Park

Smokejumpers Grill near Grizzly Peak in Disney California Adventure Park is a fun counter service spot serving up eats like a Spicy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, a BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich (still tastes like jackfruit…it ain’t BBQ), and Campfire Chili with bison. It’s set in a massive hangar that was used, you know, by smokejumpers!

The space is full of industrial details like exposed duct work and rivets.

There are also personal touches, like these mugs left behind by the building’s previous occupants.

Our Disneyland correspondent Heather Sievers (@DiningInDisney) enjoyed a bacon cheeseburger and toppings bar back when the Grill first opened in 2015, but when I stopped in, I was looking for two things: the Cobbler Shake and the most epic S’more we’ve ever seen.

The Cobbler Shake is so good. It’s basically a piece of Cranberry Apple Cobbler churned into a Vanilla Shake. It’s as silly and delicious as it sounds! Grab a spoon to scoop out the pieces of cobbler that won’t fit up the straw!

The other treat I was after? A whopper of a S’more, y’all! This beauty has been making the social media rounds, and it’s easy to see why! It’s massive! The top is a white chocolate piece bearing the Grill’s name and logo.

But in between…there’s a tower of Marshmallow. Charred, sweet, pillowy marshmallow!

Seriously. If you try to pull this baby apart, this is what you’ll see: layer after layer of marshmallow!

S'more Marshmallow!

S’more Marshmallow!

This S’more is astounding. It’s so good that it’s almost worth the hour that it took for the busy restaurant to get it to me! An hour! For a S’more! At a counter service restaurant! And I’m saying…it’s almost worth that wait!

Seriously. Get this.

Where can you find your favorite S’more treat in the World or Land? Let us know!
