Fusion foods are still a trendy topic in the food world, and two of our favorite Disney Springs restaurants are partnering up for a one-afternoon-only, ticketed event called Pigs + Pints that combines the best of Morimoto Asia’s refined Asian cuisine and The Polite Pig’s southern fare.
It’s time for breakfast in Disneyland — Rancho del Zocalo style!
This beautiful restaurant — and I mean seriously, it’s gorgeous — is situated in Frontierland, where all things rough and rowdy reign supreme. But step into this colorful corner, and you’re surrounded by cheerful warmth and bright colors. And let’s not forget the food!
I love the riches of tradition that take place throughout Epcot during Holidays Around the World.
And one of my favorite holiday rituals is learning about how others celebrate this important time of the year.
We all know about Santa in the United States and other countries, Père Noël in France, and Father Christmas in the UK. Today, I thought we could take a look at some of the other Christmas traditions celebrated in the lands of World Showcase. And of course, we’ll be snacking along the way as well.
Season’s Greetings and Merry Christmas! We hope that the season is treating you well, and that you’re taking time out to enjoy all of the little blessings it holds.
And speaking of treating…why don’t we chat about some Disney treats! See? I can bring anything right back to the Disney and the eating.
Today, we’re sharing another fun installment in our Disney Food Pics of the Week Series, which features you, our wonderful readers, and all of the great images you capture and share with us!
If you’d like to get in on the fun, we’d love to see your photos, too! Just head over to the Disney Food Blog Photo Extravaganza — our Flickr Page — and join up to share!
Since we’re enjoying the holidays at present, I wanted to share a few more shots that you’ve captured from the season of Merry and Bright. Let’s take a look!
Holiday Tamales from Rancho del Zocalo
Isn’t it awesome when we get to enjoy our holiday favorites? In some parts of the country, tamales are a beloved holiday food, and I love that Rancho del Zocalo in Disneyland honors that. Now I know what I’d like to have for dinner…

These Snowman Marshmallow Pops, which were spotted at Marceline’s, are crazy cute! If the little scarves around their neck don’t charm you, I know their Mickey Ear Hats will!

This past weekend marked the first time the Disneyland has celebrated Dia de Reyes, also know as Three Kings Day. This special event is celebrated at the end of the Christmas season marking the occasion when the three kings, or three wise men, followed the star to Bethlehem to deliver their riches to the Christ child.
Disneyland celebrated the event in Frontierland with special menu items, activities, performances, and character greetings. We started our day off at Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante for a holiday feast.
Rancho del Zocalo Specialty Eats
The restaurant was offering four special menu items for the event: a Tamale Platter, a Carne Asada/Tamale Platter, a Sweet Corn Tamale dessert, and Mexican Hot Chocolate.
Since Rancho del Zocalo is a counter service cafeteria type restaurant, we grabbed our trays and ordered one each of the entree specials. We also ordered a Sweet Corn Tamale, a fruit platter, and [Read more…]
