Welcome back to another weekly update from the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland! The Anaheim resort is set to celebrate it’s 66th Anniversary this weekend, and a LOT has been going on in the parks!
Let’s get caught up on what’s new at Disneyland, including tons of food updates!
Disneyland Park Food Updates
The newest snack to arrive at the Disneyland Resort is a food/merchandise combo! To celebrate the reopening of Jungle Cruise, guests can dig into the new Pineapple Split DOLE Whip Sundae!
The sundae includes 2 spears of pineapple, 2 small swirls of DOLE Whip, blueberries and strawberries, coconut flakes, banana chips, and gummy butterflies.
The best part? It comes with a souvenir Jungle Cruise BOAT!
You can grab one while supplies last at The Tropical Hideaway for $24.99!
Kat Saka’s is known for their unique popcorn flavors (one of our long-time favorites being their Chocolate Popcorn), but this week we tried Batuu Wilds Banana Popped Grains, a.k.a. their new BANANA flavor!
And ya know what? It wasn’t that bad! The banana flavor came in as a bit of an aftertaste, giving this traditionally salty snack a nice sweet balance! Try it for yourself at Kat Saka’s Kettle for $6.49.
Finally, we spotted a limited-time Anniversary Caramel Apple at Pooh Corner in Critter Country!
This adorably dapper Apple is dipped in Caramel along with Milk, Dark, AND White Chocolate with Blue Sugar, a White Chocolate Bow Tie, Yellow M&M’s, and Marshmallow Ears.
It’s SUPER sweet, even sweeter than most Disneyland Apples we’ve had in the past! Be ready to share this one with a friend for $12.99 if you’re visiting this weekend during Disneyland’s Anniversary!
Our final food update from Disneyland Park can be found at outdoor Pretzel Carts in Frontierland and Fantasyland! We snacked on the Jalapeño Pretzel at the Frontierland Pretzel Cart across from Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
We didn’t taste much spice from the jalapeño, so if you’re looking for a little heat, you may be disappointed — but if all you care about is the CHEESE, this will be a great snack option on your next trip to Disneyland. It’s available for $6!
Disney California Adventure Food Updates
This fan-favorite restaurant has been reopen since A Touch of Disney kicked off back in March, but this is the first time guests can enjoy their weekend brunch menu since the closures began in 2020!
If you’re visiting Disneyland on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, grab an AM reservation at Lamplight Lounge!
In the coming weeks, there are lots of additional dining openings, including Carthay Circle Restaurant and Golden Horseshoe! Not to mention, we’ll finally see the return of character dining at the Disneyland Resort this month! There’s lots to cover, so be sure to follow along for the latest Disneyland dining news.
Disneyland Resort General Updates
Jungle Cruise officially reopened on July 16th, but we were able to get a sneak peek of the reimagined attraction a little early!
The attraction opened up for the first time since the closures began last year, including some new scenes!
This is also the first time guests can get a look at the new addition of Trader Sam’s Gift Shop (we also spotted the Gift Shop open for business at Disney World)!
The attraction is still being reimagined at Disney World, so if you want to take a look at the completed version, head over to Disneyland!
Speaking of reopening rides, we learned this week that Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage is set to open this winter!
The classic Disneyland attraction has been closed since the resort’s closure began back in March of 2020, and we’re thrilled to see that it will return later this year!
Disneyland Resort Merchandise Updates
If you’re a big fan of Cars Land like we are, then you’ll love the newest Loungefly mini backpack to arrive at Disneyland!
This backpack is covered with the Cars Land logo!
The logo is also found inside the bag!
You can pick this mini backpack up in Cars Land for $75.
That’ll do it for our latest roundup of what’s new at the Disneyland Resort! There’s a lot going on these days, and there’s something new to check out every time we visit! Stay tuned for all of the latest news as more locations reopen in the Happiest Place on Earth.
