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!
For the first time in OVER a year, we’re enjoying so tons of different areas in Disney California Adventure Park (DCA) as part of the “A Touch of Disney” ticketed event.
During this event, there are Disney characters all around, special new music, and even awesome photo ops. But, there’s also FOOD!! Lamplight Lounge has been closed at DCA since last year…until NOW. We had QUITE the interesting time getting a reservation for this spot, but now we finally got the chance to step inside! Want to take a look at this beautiful restaurant with us? Of course you do! Let’s go!!
We’ve been anxiously awaiting more details about the upcoming special ticketed event at Disney California Adventure!
The A Touch of Disney event will reopen almost all of California Adventure for shopping and dining, although rides won’t be included with the experience. But guests can expect to get reunited with some of their favorite Disneyland food! Today, Disney shared details on pricing, event dates, and more for the event. And we now know that a highly anticipated location is reopening as well.
Well, well, well… look who’s on hand to give us a little Sneak Peek of Pixar Pier, opening on June 23, 2018 in Disney California Adventure at Disneyland Resort!
Edna Mode from The Incredibles — who, by the way, guests will soon be able to meet in both Disneyland Resort (starting June 15th) and Disney World’s Magic Kingdom (beginning Memorial Day Weekend) — started off a day of Pixar-riffic adventure, offering glimpses into all the fun — and FOOD — that is to come on Pixar Pier!
I was so excited to attend a Media Preview for Pixar Pier yesterday, and I can finally share this sneak peek — and even some sneak tastes — with you!
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!
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.
We can all use a few tips when it comes to planning vacations at Disney. And of course, we think the food is just about the most important part of the trip!
Budgeting for all of the special meals that you’d like to enjoy is a big concern. And it may seem impossible to cut corners and save a little here and there while still enjoying yourself. But with a little creative planning, you can find some wonderful meals at some of the coolest places, all for less than you might think.
Previously, we shared our Top Picks at Walt Disney World for Meals Under $20. Today, we’re back to celebrate some fantastic meals that you can enjoy at Disneyland for around $20 or less. This is by no means exhaustive — there are lots more where these came from. But for now, come with us and check out some of the great options we have to share! [Read more…]
Cove Bar‘s job is to remind you that you’re in the Happiest Place on Earth, over and over again. And it does that job well.
That’s why it’s #OnTheList this week!
