One of those places is Cafe Orleans in Disneyland, known for its absolutely ICONIC Monte Cristo Sandwich and delicious Pommes Frites! The location has historical significance, as it’s been at Disneyland since New Orleans Square opened in the park in 1966! It was first called Creole Café and still hosts the original espresso machine that brewed up drinks for Walt Disney himself! Let’s see how this favorite spot is holding up!
If you’re a frequent diner at Blue Bayou: one, lucky you! Two, the reopened restaurant looks a little different. There are additional health and safety measures as well as a major menu update: ALCOHOL! This has NEVER been allowed here before, so we were pretty excited to see what having a drink on the bayou would be like. Let’s check it out!
Lots of things have changed recently at Disney World. Some hotels are set to reopen soon, maskless photos can be taken outdoors, and we’ve even seen changes made when it comes to self-serve drink stations.
But, when it comes to food, there’s still quite a bit that is different from how things were prior to the park closures. Some fan-favorite restaurants are still closed and quite a lot of food hasn’t returned to the parks and hotels. So, today we’re going down our list and sharing some of those food items that are still missing from Disney World so you can plan ahead for your next trip (and not be SEVERELY disappointed when you find that *spoiler alert* beignets are not available from Disney’s Port Orleans Resort — French Quarter 😭).
We’re covering a LOT of changes in Disneyland right now as we explore the park for the first time in over a year!
We’ve been reporting LIVE from the park today. Now, we’re bringing you some Disneyland food news that might not be the best thing you hear today. You may need to sit down for this one.
Disneyland’s theme parks are officially set to reopen on April 30th, and we can’t wait!
While we have been enjoying the popular eats in Walt Disney World, we truly can’t explain our excitement to eat some iconic Disneyland food again! We got a little taste of Disneyland eats at some of the food booths at A Touch of Disney, like churros and Dole Whip, but we’ve noticed a HUGE menu change at a classic Disneyland restaurant!
This hard-ticketed event features tons of food options from around Disneyland Resort, exclusive perks for Legacy Passholders, ADORABLE character interactions, and MUCH more! We’re tasting LOTS of different items all over the park (including WINGS from Trader Sam’s). And now, we’re heading over to Smokejumpers Grill to get a Disneyland classic and 2 NEW items!
We’ve been hard at work scoping out all the latest news for you this week. Today we have all the details on what’s happening that affects the Disney Parks.
Due to the current global situation, ALL Disney Parks will be closed until further notice. See all of our coverage HERE. But we still have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in… .
The day we’ve been waiting for is finally here! Disney’s Riviera Resort is officially OPEN!
And while our excitement levels have been going OFF THE CHARTS as we’ve been counting down the days for the hotel to make its official debut, it’s FINALLY time to check out Disney’s Riviera Resort! Join us over at Bar Riva now while we scope out the drinks, eats, and atmosphere of Riviera’s pool bar!
Let’s dig into an EXCLUSIVE Bar Riva menu!
Could it be? The return of the Monte Cristo to Disney World?!
While we have seen renditions of this so-much-MORE-than-fried-ham-and-cheese sandwich done in the past at Disney World (namely at Woody’s Lunchbox and Columbia Harbour House), it has always ended up disappearing from their menus without a trace! But (FINALLY!) we think we’ve found a keeper in WDW, and it might just rival the infamous offering over in Disneyland… .
