Review: Troubadour Tavern in Disneyland Park

Helllllloooooo from Disneyland and the Troubadour Tavern!

Troubadour Tavern

Troubadour Tavern

This hidden gem is a great place to grab a very quick bite in Disneyland. It’s tiny and doesn’t have much seating, but there are a couple of menu items worth getting, and you may even see a show! More on that later… .

In case you’re not sure where Troubadour Tavern is located (it’s kind of hidden, and many folks would walk right by), you’ll find it toward [Read more…]

News! New Eats and Drinks Debut to Celebrate Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary

Did someone say cupcakes?!?!

As I’m sure you know, Disneyland has a rather big birthday coming up. The resort will celebrate its 60th Anniversary in July. But you don’t have to wait until the middle of Summer to have your cake and eat it too!

On May 22, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will debut some fun (and delish) treats to mark Disneyland’s Diamond Anniversary Celebration.

While cupcakes are usually more of an East Coast Disney thing than a West Coast one, when Disneyland does ‘em, they’re incredible. Beginning May 22, find a Lemon-flavorored Cupcake at Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe. Why lemon? It’s the perfect flavor to celebrate the Victorian theme of Main Street USA.

Similar Cupcakes will be available at Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe in Disney California Adventure — but the flavor will be Orange there to represent the 1930s vibe of Buena Vista Street.

In addition to the cupcakes, Disneyland will release lots of new, limited-time beverages. I gotta say — I’m a little perplexed why they’d offer five different drinks that look and sound incredibly similar. ;-)

Dining in Disneyland: The Return (and New Menu!) of Troubadour Tavern

After being closed for several months for the refurbishment of its neighbor, the Fantasyland Theatre, the Troubadour Tavern has reopened with a smaller, but still worth-a-visit menu.

 Atmosphere

With Mickey and the Magical Map opening this week at the Theatre next door, the Troubadour Tavern is back open and ready for guests to grab a snack while they watch the show.

Located in Fantasyland, directly next to the Fantasyland Theatre, Troubadour Tavern is quaint little counter service snack stop.

There is a small area with a few shaded tables for dining if you’re visiting for eats only. If you’re there to see Mickey and the Magical Map, you can bring your food into the theatre.

Eats

The look of the Tavern has not changed, but there is a significant difference in the menu items.  The most obvious change? The baked potatoes did not make a comeback.

Not to worry though, the Disneyland baked potatoes were moved to Harbour Galley during the closure of Troubadour Tavern and they will remain at Harbour Galley. So you can still get your baked potato fix if you need it!

There are currently 4 “main” items on the Troubadour Tavern menu: The Bratwurst Sausage, Pretzel Bites with Cheese Sauce, a Cinnamon Apple Baton, & Apple Slices with Caramel Dipping Sauce.
