Every Role a Starring Role: Tiki Juice Bar Hostess at the Disneyland Resort

posted on September 4th, 2015 by Kevin Rafferty, Jr., Communications Specialist, Disneyland Resort

One of my favorite snacks at the Disneyland Resort is a Dole Whip from the Tiki Juice Bar. The popular treat has been served at the Tiki Juice Bar since 1976 when the location was first sponsored by Dole with the Enchanted Tiki Room.

With the summer heat, we wanted to spotlight Tiki Juice Bar Hostess Jenn Pitoniak, who helps serve more than 960,000 Dole Whips each year at the Disneyland Resort! Learn more about Jenn’s role in this “Every Role a Starring Role.”

posted on September 4th, 2015 by Rachel Brent, Food & Beverage Marketing Communications Coordinator

A wild and once-in-a-lifetime experience is coming to Disneyland park. The Jungle Cruise Sunrise Safari Breakfast will take place on select dates from September 21 to December 2, 2015.


Your Sunrise Safari will begin with a welcome from the Jungle Navigation Company, Ltd., before you dive into breakfast on the African veldt of the world-famous Jungle Cruise attraction in Adventureland. I would be “lion” if I said this wasn’t a special opportunity — it’s not everyday that you get a chance to dine in the attraction.

Your roaring hunger is sure to be satisfied with an assortment of fresh pastries and scones, exotic fruit and chia parfait, eggs cooked to perfection, glazed pork belly bacon, pan-seared sausage and roasted golden potato-and-onion hash. Quench your thirst for adventure with an assortment of juices, freshly brewed coffee and specialty teas.

Following breakfast, you’re going to get a crash course in Jungle Skipper training before getting behind the wheel of your own boat to recite that famous spiel. Upon your Initiation into the elite “Fraternal League of Secret Skippers,” you’ll receive an exclusive keepsake—a tribal mask inspired by original concept art for the Jungle Cruise attraction.

Reservations are extremely limited and are now being accepted. Make yours here.

Adventures in Martinique with Disney Cruise Line

posted on September 4th, 2015 by Arnaldo Zanonato, Manager, Port Adventures Research & Development

The Disney Wonder’s first call on the French island of Martinique is just around the corner. As part of our return to the Southern Caribbean in January, Disney cruisers will have the chance to experience the “Flower of the Caribbean” on exciting Port Adventures that showcase the island’s natural beauty and cosmopolitan culture of French and Creole influence. If you’re joining us in Fort de France, Martinique, here are some of the excursions your family is sure to enjoy:


Saint Pierre and Rum Distillery with Lunch – The seaside town of Saint Pierre, once demolished by a volcano eruption in 1902, is one of the most popular destinations today in Martinique. During your visit, you’ll learn about this historic event at the fascinating Volcanological Museum. Another highlight of this tour is the Saint James Rum Distillery, one of the most famous distilleries on the island, where adults have the opportunity to taste the Agricol rum of Martinique and explore the local museum. This full-day excursion includes a delicious Creole lunch and countless photo opportunities of the island’s charming fishing villages.


Beach and Snorkel at Bat Cave – Nature lovers won’t want to miss this chance to snorkel Martinique’s crystalline waters! Your adventure begins with a boat ride across the bay of Fort de France to the beach of Anse-Dufour for swimming and snorkeling. Next, you’ll visit the famous Bat Cave, a premiere snorkeling destination only accessible by boat, to discover tropical marine life such as parrot fish and angel fish at the coral reef. This Port Adventure combines fun and relaxation, giving you plenty of time to soak up the Caribbean sun and enjoy views of the island’s stunning coastline.


Historic Plantation and Tropical Garden – For a taste of Martinique’s history and nature, this excursion includes visits to an authentic plantation house and one of the island’s best gardens. First, you’ll tour the exceptionally well-maintained Clement Plantation House and remnants of its sugar cane and rum distillery. Then, your countryside journey takes you to a banana plantation field, followed by the Church of Balata, a small-size replica of Sacré-Coeur Basilica in France with views over the city and surrounding country. Lastly, you’ll explore the Botanical Garden of Balata where you can enjoy a bird’s-eye-view of the gardens from a tree-top footbridge.

Departing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, the Disney Wonder will sail four seven-night cruises to the Southern Caribbean. In addition to Martinique, these cruises call on the exotic islands of Antigua, Grenada, Barbados and St. Kitts. For more Port Adventure recommendations, check out my previous posts:
