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!
Hey friends! If you know us, you know we’re total foodies. We’re always on the hunt for new foods to try and review for you guys…and for ourselves, really. 😉
But we’re also always on the lookout for new merchandise to show off our love for Disney Parks food.
Welcome back to Disneyland Resort for another What’s New! We’re bringing you some construction updates, a fun new plush, and a fun return donut!

Having just returned from an amazing trip to the Tokyo Disney Resort, there are a few items there that I just have to share with you! The Pizza Spring Roll being basically at the tip top of my list. Yes, you read that right PIZZA SPRING ROLL!
Located in Tokyo Disneyland’s Toon Town is this adorable little food cart that serves two types of Spring Rolls. Don’t mind my husband ordering in what appears to look like a Ninja Turtle outfit. It happened to be pouring rain!
The two types of Spring Rolls offered are Pizza (yum) and Egg & Shrimp (not so yum). If you’re curious about pricing, 290 Yen is about $2.42. Very reasonable for a filling snack.
The Spring Rolls are pre-made and awaiting your arrival at Toon Town. Both types look identical, so the different sleeves let you know which type of roll you have in hand. The red packaging is the Pizza Spring Roll and the yellow is the Egg & Shrimp. Perfect planning!
Here’s a close up of the Pizza Spring Rolls in their sleeves.

In light of Mickey’s and Minnie’s imminent move out of Disney World’s Fantasyland, I thought we’d take a tour through each mouse’s kitchen to glean whatever cooking and food-related tips and tricks we can before they take up residence elsewhere. Today, we visit Minnie’s kitchen!
First stop is Minnie’s bulletin board. Located just outside her kitchen, we get an idea of the kind of diet advice she’s giving out in her magazine:
And diets are clearly a concern for Minnie (guess she’s working hard on keeping that mouse-ful figure!). Here’s her little invention for keeping the calories at bay — “diet cookies.” You can have as many as you want, if you can get to them through the glass!:
As we enter Minnie’s kitchen, there’s always a lot going on. This is the room where you’ll find the most interactivity in Minnie’s house, and for all her talk about diets, there’s nothing diet in here! Follow the crowd and see what Minnie’s making in her oven and microwave — there are really fun sound effects here, too:
Once you’re full of cake and popcorn, check out Minnie’s “WestingMouse” fridge to see what kinds of cheesy goodness she has today. Also, be sure to check out her favorite cookie recipe, “Cheesy Chip Cookies,” pinned up on the door.
All cheesed out? Check out what Minnie’s “put up” for the winter, along with a few of her prized cookbooks:
Interestingly, Mickey seems to have a candy company to rival Goofy’s…
And it’s fun to see what Minnie’s collecting — teapots!
Even the pots and pans are musical here! You can hear them banging and clanging in rhythm!
Finally, head out into Minnie’s sun room and see her prized buttercups…
Thanks for touring Minnie’s kitchen with us. We’ll be visiting Mickey soon, but I hear his kitchen’s being remodeled…something about a contest…
