We’ve been making our way all around A Touch of Disney, but we were especially excited to FINALLY get to stop by this restaurant again. We’ve already brought ya a full review (lobster nachos, YUM!), but we couldn’t help but stop by again to show you the drinks up for grabs on their secret menu.
Lamplight Lounge has a prime location on the water at Pixar Pier , and their menu mixes highly themed drinks with iconic DCA dishes. Plus, they have a (not-so-secret) secret menu! We previously shared a first look at our experience, and now we’re here to give you all of the details! Let’s cross into the world of Pixar and dive right in!
Big news, everybody! We now know MORE about the return of our beloved Disney World restaurants!
Disney World theme parks are set to begin a phased reopening on July 11th, but at the end of this month, signs of guest life will begin returning to Disney World. Disney Vacation Club Resorts and Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will reopen on June 22nd. Now, Disney has released the list of ALL of the RESTAURANTS that will be opening that day!
The newly reopened Blue Sky Cellar in Disney California Adventure is giving us glimpses into the future of Pixar Pier.
The Cellar features concept art, sketches, models, and even videos of the upcoming land, which opens on June 23rd, and includes some new concept art of Lamplight Lounge! As Heather Sievers (@diningindisney) was busy noshing on all the eats at Pixar Fest, she stopped by Blue Sky Cellar and shared photos of the concept art with us.
This new lounge will replace the Cove Bar. The story behind the space is that it’s renovated from an old warehouse factory, with the wooden floor made from refinished wood boards from the factory (you’ll spot them on the ceiling, too).
Super excited to share some breaking news with you about Pixar Pier in Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure park. (Don’t forget that Pixar Pier officially opens on June 23rd!)
We’ve got the scoop on some brand new eats for Pixar Fest as well as some upcoming Pixar Pier dining locations that will be permanent residents of the new Pixar Pier! Ready? Here we go!! (Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see the new Pixar Pier dining spots!)
June 23rd will be a HUGE day at Disney California Adventure Park in Disneyland Resort! It was recently announced that it will be the opening day for Pixar Pier.
And it was just revealed that it will also be the opening day for the new Lamplight Lounge!
When DCA’s Cove Bar closed on January 8 as part of Paradise Pier’s transition to Pixar Pier, fans of the bar’s innovative (and beautiful) drinks (including the fun secret menu!) lamented the loss of this popular spot. What would become of their technicolor concoctions?
HUGE NEWS out of Disneyland today, my friends! It has just been announced that Pixar Pier — which is coming to Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure Park — will bring serious changes for favorites Cove Bar and Ariel’s Grotto — including closures and renovations. While we’ve known that Pixar-themed changes are in store for Paradise Pier for a while, now we have more of the scoop!
Pixar Pier will be made up of four new neighborhoods representing four Pixar stories. The highlight of The Incredibles neighborhood will be the new Incredicoaster (transforming the current California Screamin’, which will close on January 8th).
Toy Story and Inside Out will also be represented in their own neighborhoods and will include a new family-friendly ride in the Inside Out area (opening season not yet announced).
Several Pixar stories will be represented in the fourth neighborhood, which will bring a new look to Mickey’s Fun Wheel (each gondola will feature a different Pixar character). The Games of the Boardwalk will likewise be re-themed with Pixar characters. January 8th is again the closing date for Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Games of the Boardwalk, and Sideshow Shirts so the spots can begin their transformation. [Read more…]

If you haven’t heard the big news, I’m here to deliver it: April is Grilled Cheese Month. And that, my friends, is a food holiday that we can totally get behind.

Who’s coming with? Let’s go!
Our first stop: Walt Disney World!
Pimento Grilled Cheese, Planet Hollywood Observatory
If you were there with us when Planet Hollywood Observatory opened (or actually, reopened) its doors earlier this year, then you know that we weren’t all that impressed with most of what we tried. But there was one standout: the Pimento Grilled Cheese.
The triple decker sandwich is two meals in one. First, you have a fairly traditional Grilled Cheese, spiced up with the addition of Pimento Cheese. But then, the second story involved super cheesy Mac and Cheese layered between crunchy Grilled Bread. Yep, that’s A Layer of Carbs on Top of More Carbs. And we are completely fine with that.
