Another snack that you absolutely should NOT miss out on is Mickey beignets! These can be found in both Disneyland and Disney World, and we’re heading to the West Coast today to check out some NEW flavors. [Read more…]
Disneyland is the home of the iconic, the legendary, and the supreme Monte Cristo Sandwich. Disney World has tried (and somewhat failed) a few times to live up to its famed cheesy, greasy, and delicious reputation — though admittedly they came pretty darn close with Plaza Restaurant’s Monte Cristo for the 50th Anniversary Celebration.
There are a couple of places you’ll find the Monte Cristo Sandwich at Disneyland: most famously at Cafe Orleans in New Orleans Square, as well as its dimly lit next-door neighbor, Blue Bayou Restaurant.
Disney Merriest Nites at Disneyland Park is a new after-hours holiday event taking place on five different nights throughout November and December 2021.
We had the chance to visit the first night of this new holiday event and we experienced ALL the entertainment, including six unique holiday parties hosted by different Disney characters throughout Disneyland AND a Christmas parade!
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.
