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!
Disneyland has started to reopen more dining locations since the parks first reopened in late April. Today, Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland Park’s New Orleans Square is welcoming guests back for the first time since the closures first began in March of 2020!
Not only that, but for the first time ever, Blue Bayou is serving alcoholic beverages! We visited this afternoon to check everything out. And now we’re sharing a first look at this newly reopened spot with you!!
With park reservations almost completely sold out, we were prepared for quite a big crowd of fellow Disney fans today as we made our way around. We’ve had almost a year to experience the Disney World parks with capacity restrictions, social distancing, and other health and safety measures in place, so we were curious how that would translate to Disneyland. And now, we’re taking a look!
After a closure that spanned over 400 days, we are officially back in Disneyland! We’ve been exploring the fully reopened parks, rides and all, for the first time in thirteen months and we honestly didn’t know where to visit first!
Once we paused and thought about it, we knew we couldn’t let this day go by without visiting some of Disneyland’s most iconic locations. So join us on a little photo tour as we say “hello” once again to some of our favorite spots in the Happiest Place on Earth.
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!
Earlier today, Disney shared a ton of exciting food news, including the MAJOR announcement that Blue Bayou Restaurant in Disneyland will begin to serve alcoholic beverages when it reopens!
With Disneyland’s opening just one month away, we’re pretty stoked to hear about any new changes coming to the parks! For those under the age of 21 or those looking for nonalcoholic drink options, additional menu changes are on the way at Blue Bayou.
Psst! Avast there! It be too late to alter course, mateys—and there be plunderin’ pirates lurkin’ in every cove, waitin’ to board.
If you’re seeking adventure on the high seas, it doesn’t get much better than Pirates of the Caribbean — one of Disney’s most ICONIC rides!
One of the most classic Disney snacks of all time has GOT to be beignets. These warm, fluffy treats that you can find in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World come in all sorts of flavors that we’ve been obsessing over throughout the years.
Whether they’re seasonal the red hot boozy beignets from Scat Cat’s Club, or the seasonal chocolate strawberry beignets at the Mint Julep Bar, they’re probably one of the snack items we miss the most right now!
So imagine our delight when we saw that Disney had blessed us with a recipe on recreating Mickey Mouse-shaped beignets at home! We have a feeling we know EXACTLY what we’ll be doing this weekend!
Ghouls from realms near and far, there’s a swingin’ wake happening that you DON’T want to miss!
Although we can’t visit the actual Haunted Mansion in the Disney Parks right now, the grim grinning ghosts are bringing the ride to you. (*Cue evil laughter*)
