Since then, we’ve been eating SO many donuts, and that includes a Donut Grilled Cheese (don’t knock it until you try it), some fabulous over-the-top donuts, and some delicious cold brew coffees! Now, Everglazed is celebrating a milestone with a special donut and cold brew treat.
Disney California Adventure has removed the Donald Duck meet and greet gazebo on Paradise Pier for a very good reason; Cove Bar expansion! The new seating is adjacent to the existing bar. (If you are a Donald fan, don’t fret… Donald has been moved over to Buena Vista Street and he now has Daisy there as his companion.)
I’m sure your first thought is, “Awesome, more seats, less wait!” But alas, this is far from the truth. I recently when to check out the expansion and some new menu items. It was a Friday just before noon and we still waited 45 minutes for a party of 2. Personally I think the Cove Bar is worth the wait, but I also think that if they filled the whole pier with Cove Bar seating, there would still be a long wait. It’s THAT good. You can see that others agree with me. This is the line we waited in.
Cotton candy lemonade has been added to the mix at Everything Pop Food Court located in Disney’s Pop Century Resort! DFB author Wendy shares her thoughts…
We’re off to visit Everything Pop at Pop Century Resort!
Everything Pop is no stranger to unique treats. It is, of course, home of the King Cupcake!
And Tie-Dye Cheesecake! (Which, FYI, is now served in a circular serving versus a typical pie wedge — see the menu below.)
Now Pop is offering up another fun find… Cotton Candy Lemonade:).
Cotton Candy Lemonade
You’ll find this beverage at the desserts counter, and can place your order right under the Ice Cream sign.
I’ll be honest… I pretty much figured the Cotton Candy was just a gimmick. You know, something cutesy to stick in the bottom of the cup and on top of the ice. And it IS pretty cute! I mean, how much fun is this??
But the fun factor
This past Friday, Disney California Adventure surprised visitors with a soft opening of their new nighttime dance party, the Alice-in-Wonderland-themed Mad T Party.
Knowing that the “Rabbit Hole” was opening at 7:00, we got there just before so we could see the whole grand opening first night extravaganza. You can see by the photo below, that the soft opening wasn’t too big of a secret; lots of people!
As far as seating goes, Disney really did it right. I am totally in love with the Linvin plastic furniture that they purchased to fill the area. If you want one of these in your home, though, it’s going to set you back about $895 (I did the research, I hope Disney got a bulk discount!). There are plenty of chairs, but you might have to fight me for a purple one….
And as the night wore on, the atmosphere got even more colorful…
While waiting for the Rabbit Hole to open, which basically meant walking though a long tunnel of mist, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum greeted guests and put on a little banter to entertain us while we waited. I wonder if these guys shaved their heads for the part?
Also, check the tough guy neck tats on the backs of their heads. Pretty [Read more…]
