It’s time for another installment of What’s New from Disneyland Resort! This week we have some delicious menu additions in Fantasyland, fun construction progress, and more merch than you can wave a flag at. 😉 Come stroll through Walt’s park with us!
(No, the castle’s not uncovered yet. A couple more weeks!)
Disneyland Resort Food and Menu What’s New
We’re starting with food news, which includes some awesome eats from Red Rose Taverne in Fantasyland. The breakfast menu has two filling new-to-us options: Beast’s Breakfast Burger and Stuffed French Toast.
We’ll have a review for these comin’ riiiiiight up!
Meanwhile for lunch and dinner, Red Rose Taverne has Slow-Cooked Beef Poutine! How ’bout those pickled onions?
And for the heartiest of appetites: Beast’s Forbidden Burger. It’s topped with a Wagyu beef steak, which sounds enchanted to us. 😉
Caramelized onions also make a big impression. This is served with Pommes Frites, so yes, please, we’d like one right now. (Review coming soon!)
If you’re ready for some sweet (and TART), head over to Jolly Holiday for a Key Lime Custard. This super tart treat — returning to the menu — is smooth and cool. It’s a delicious summertime dessert.
We tried this treat back in March when it was called a Key Lime Tart (see our review here!). The only thing that’s changed is the garnish. The white and chocolate piece used to be a white chocolate daisy. Still a real pucker-up kind of treat. 😉
White Water Snacks at Disneyland’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa has a new Butterfly Cupcake.
This chocolate cupcake has no filling — but it makes up for that with multi-color butter cream, bright seasonal colors, and a white chocolate butterfly!
For Mother’s Day, Trolley Treats created a purple rose cake pop. This was chocolate cake infused with raspberry flavor.
So pretty we had to give it a photo shoot. 😉 The edible gold dust is prominent on this rose (often it’s hard to discern on the red rose cake pops).
Disneyland Resort Construction What’s New
There’s some visible progress on the Pixar Pals Parking Structure. Some wall board is going up on the escalators.
And much work continues on the stairwells, too.
Signs are up for each level, with characters visible on some. Level three is red, which means…
Cars! Mater and Lightning McQueen are ready to greet drivers as they circle for a spot.
And it loooooooks like level four features James P. Sullivan of Monsters, Inc., fame.
We also spied this cute worker safety signage, too. Glad to see Mickey is safety-conscious.
Rita’s Baja Blenders in Disney California Adventure got a paint job. The colorful margarita mecca has a bright orange-and-teal color scheme now. (It used to be brown!)
From high above DCA on the Pixar Pal-A-Round, we spy Bing Bong’s Emotional Whirl Wind! The memory balls are moving into place!
The ride will open up this summer — then we’ll send these construction memories on down to Long Term. 😉
Silly Symphony Swings is rising once again! This fun ride is slated to reopen later this month. We’ll keep you posted!
The view from Pixar Pal-A-Round extends to the park’s future superhero-themed land! There’s not a lot to see yet — unless you’re really into construction materials — but we’ll keep riding so we can give you a birds’ eye view.
On Main Street, U.S.A., the mural that began last week appears to be nearly finished!
The mural features vehicles from the early 1900s (and some stylish drivers and passengers, too!).
Disneyland Resort Merchandise What’s New
Holy Toledo, there’s a lot of merchandise to speak of this week! We’ll start at Elias & Co., where there are two new-to-us Mad Tea Party-inspired pieces of apparel. This black-and-white graphic sweatshirt features Mickey and Minnie mid-spin!
And this polka-dotted v-neck tee has the pair topsy-turvy in the pocket!
Elias & Co. also has tons of Americana-inspired merchandise, all featuring red, white, and blue. This tank has Mickey on the pocket.
And this half-zip light-weight sweatshirt features the flag — and some Mickeys hidden in the stars.
Quelle surprise, there’s a spirit jersey for the season, too! 😉
And the kiddos haven’t been forgotten! There’s plenty of merchandise to help them get into the Independence Day spirit, too!
This hooded light-weight sweatshirt is big on Mickey!
And this patchwork tee has it all goin’ on!
Stripes are the name of the game with this tank top.
And this tank top has about a half-dozen design elements. It’s a ringer tank, and there’s a Mickey patch on the hem.
The back has a Disneyland patch, and there are two patterns going on back there, too.
Mickey’s sporting some snazzy shorts in this 2019 flag tee.
And for the kid who has it all (but doesn’t have pockets): a red, white, and blue fanny pack!
Patriotic Minnie and Mickey plush are available here, too! (We spotted these at Mouse Gear in Disney World’s Epcot, but they’re popping up all over!) Um…does Minnie always have a unibrow with eyelashes?
We spotted this bottle opener ball cap on the east coast, too (in Animal Kingdom), but know that you can get your multi-tasking hat on both coasts now. 😉
Julius Katz & Sons has Americana merchandise, too — mostly household items.
These little Mickey flag plates are cute and super tiny!
And the larger plates feature a castle outline with stars and stripes.
Coffee mugs for your collection. These feature USA on one side and Mickey in front of an outline of the U.S. on the other. Stars line the inside of the mug.
There are also fun Donald Duck mugs here! Check out the handle!
Land That I Love American flag Minnie ears are available in various locations in both Parks and Downtown Disney. We found these at World of Disney in Downtown Disney.
If you’re not heading to a Park any time soon, you can buy your Land That I Love ears here!
Also at World of Disney: so much fun Mickey merch!
When we say “Mickey merch”, we do mean Mickey all over the merch. Check out this comfy, cute sweatshirt!
Mickey Mouse is looking cute — and not a day over 90! — on this short-sleeve tee shirt.
Mickey! More Mickey! This tee has sweet little cuffed sleeves and some very animated mice.
This red tank top has Mickey on the run!
Loungefly is taking all of our money (again) with these Mickey Backpacks and Wallets! But, you know, at least we’ll have a cute wallet and backpack… 😉
World of Disney also has our park schedule down: sleep — park hop — repeat!
And there’s a great display of Aladdin merchandise just in time for the live action movie’s release on May 24!
This bomber jacket is so wild, we can’t resist, even though maybe we should…
The kids’ version has a pretty background pattern, too.
This Princess Jasmine tank, though, we absolutely must have. The frill on the neckline is pretty, and the cinched hem with tie is so great.
But, like, what can we say about this next item? It’s a Magic Carpet cross body purse by Danielle Nicole. And it’s everything. (We know — that’s a cliche these days — but this time it’s true.)
And a Magic Carpet keychain that’s so big you can’t lose it in your new Magic Carpet cross body purse. Just sayin’.
The store also has two odes to the big blue Genie. This one’s a little subtle:
…but this one really speaks to us. 😉 If you’re east coast-bound, you’ll find this in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, too!
Of course, there’s a plush for that, too. Genie!
For some retro Aladdin fun: this tank has you covered! No new interpretations here, just the good old VHS cover art.
And some bangles because what’s a Disney princess without some bling? Alex and Ani have three Aladdin designs from which to choose. Or, you know, get one of each.
The Lion King is getting some love, too. More OG cover art for this short-sleeve shirt.
And, because why not? A Simba tank top with a hoodie.
(FYI — the hoodie has Simba ears!)
Or you can go the Pumba route and get this Hakuna Matata shirt. (Please, feel free to take a minute to sing the song. We’ll wait.)
Over on Pixar Pier, Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff has a funky Rainbow Unicorn Keychain. It’s just colorful enough, right?
At various merchandise locations in both parks, you can unwrap your very own Lollipop Ears. Note that the pops themselves are plastic, not cloth. (And note that we’ve seen these on the east coast, too!)
The Concha Ears are on both coasts (see where to find them at Walt Disney World here), and they’re almost good enough to eat!
Now, brace yourself: we’re going out with a fang, here. Beast Hat with Horns.
That’s it from the west wing… er, coast! Thanks for stomping the Disneyland yard with us! And stay tuned for more of everything when we return to Disneyland for more What’s New!
