Are you ready for another round of Annual Passholder Mobile Order buttons???
Because they’re ready for you!
Happy weekend! Here’s all the Disney food news this week!
The 2019 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival kicked off March 1 and we have the FULL MENUS here! Oh, and we’ve also got SECRET menu info and reviews for you!
AND – the opening dates for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge were announced for BOTH Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
According to the report, Disneyland officials have said that from March 28-30, Dole Whip items at the Tiki Juice Bar will be available to purchase ONLY by using Mobile Order — the option within the Disneyland app which allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at participating Counter Servicer restaurants around Disneyland Resort. [Read more…]
Just yesterday we let you know about two additional restaurants now utilizing Mobile Order at Disneyland Resort: Tiki Juice Bar (hello, Dole Whip!) and Bayside Brews.
And now additional Mobile Order locations are on the way, all in Disneyland Park proper! Harbour Galley is already on the active list, meaning a Lobster Roll is just a couple minutes away! [Read more…]
How? By utilizing Mobile Order! Available via the Disneyland app, this process allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at participating Counter Service Restaurants, which now include the Tiki Juice Bar! [Read more…]
How can you possibly improve upon a Dole Whip in Disneyland?! We recently heard about a Disneyland Hack that might just make this must-have treat even more desirable, and our Disneyland guru Heather Sievers headed over to investigate!
Yep — Disneylanders in the know are dousing their dole whip with Tajin®!
But this add-on isn’t on the menu. Let me give you a little step by step…
Step 1: After you get into Disneyland, do NOT get your Dole Whip first! Stop by Tropical Imports — home of better-for-you snacks like whole fruit — in Adventureland. (Bonus points for spotting Pluto for the 2016 Egg-stravaganza!).
Step 2: Grab yourself a packet of Tajin® Clasico Seasoning. (It’s free!) [Read more…]
A riddle to ponder: What’s chock full of frozen pineapple-y goodness, available in both Walt Disney World AND Disneyland, and is #OnTheList?
Why, it’s none other than the DOLE WHIP!!
It’s pretty much impossible to consider iconic Disney snacks and NOT think of this pineapple soft-serve treat. Of course, HOW you eat it depends on WHERE you buy it, so join us on a tour of both coasts to find out where you can go to knock this one off your Disney Dining Bucket List! [Read more…]
Okay. So I tried to come up with the Top Three Disneyland Restaurants for First Timers. But there was no way I could limit my picks to just three. So then, I said, hey, let’s try for the Top Five.
So in the end, I cut myself off at Eight. 🙂
There is so much good food in Disneyland. Really, it was super hard not to just give you a list of pretty much every restaurant there, and call it a day.
But if you must narrow it down, these are the restaurants that I love. These are the spots that I’d go to every single time if I could. (And mostly, I do.)
Heading to Disneyland, or just dreaming about a pilgrimage there? Check out my picks for the places you have to visit during your very first trip. Whether you’re looking for a meal or a snack, you can’t go wrong with putting these spots on your list.
If I could only eat at one spot in Disneyland for the rest of my life, I’m fairly sure that spot would be Cafe Orleans. Located on New Orleans Square, it’s offers some of the beautiful patio seating that Disneyland is known for.
But I’m going to be honest — Cafe Orleans claims the distinction of offering not just one or two, but three of my favorite Disneyland dishes. (And that’s pretty much all I ever eat there.) First, when you visit here, I insist you order the Pommes Frites. Tossed with Garlic and Parmesan, they’re served with a Cajun Remoulade ramekin. I also insist you order TWO remoulades. At least. Per person.
While I love their gumbo here as well, it’s the Monte Cristo Sandwich that I can’t live without. Pockets of bread layered with Ham, Turkey, and Swiss Cheese are lightly battered and deep-fried. Served with Berry Puree for dipping, this is pretty much something everyone should eat at least once in life.
Not a meat-eater? There’s also an All-Cheese Version. No. Seriously. There is.
Behold. The Three-Cheese Monte Cristo. Did I mention the Double Creme Brie?
But save room for dessert — because you can’t pass on the Mickey Beignets served with Dipping Sauces.
Have this meal just once, and you can say “I’ve been to Disneyland” properly as far as I’m concerned.
But Cafe Orleans has an older, slightly more posh sister — Blue Bayou. And while I usually skip it in favor of Cafe Orleans, if you’re visiting the ‘Land for the first time, you really need to experience this place.
Because more than anything, Blue Bayou is an experience; it’s as much an attraction as a restaurant.
Because the restaurant is fashioned to look like a verandah on a river’s edge. Look below you into the water, and you see travelers, en route to explore the mysteries of the Pirates of the Caribbean.
Honestly, the food is less important here to me than the “view.” I have enjoyed the New Orleans Signature Gumbo. And in this setting, it’s even better.
And yep, to be honest, I like to order the Monte Cristo here, too!
It’s a little fancier (and more expensive), but just as delicious.
Some of my Disneyland dining choices are obviously sentimental; either I love the restaurant, the food, or both. But it’s not like they’re the tip-top of the culinary pyramid or anything. But then, there’s Napa Rose.
Nestled inside Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, Napa Rose stands as a testament to fine California fusion cuisine, inspired by fresh farm-to-market ingredients.
Chef Andrew Sutton is in charge here, and his menus make use of the freshest items. Prepare to be [Read more…]
