Late-Night Snacking at the Disneyland Resort

We’re still having fun, but it’s time for a late-night snack! I found myself in need of a sugar boost, so I picked up some cotton candy in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Other ways to refuel include an out-of-this-world Breakfast Burrito from Tomorrowland Terrace in Disneyland park, filled with eggs, chorizo, pico de gallo, salsa, queso fresco, and black beans wrapped in a flour tortilla, served with fresh fruit.

Over in Disney California Adventure park, you won’t get ‘tired’ of The Insomniac from Award Wieners — a bacon, egg and sausage dog with pepper jack cheese, topped with a maple crunch.

What has been your favorite ‘taste’ of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration 24-hour event?

We’re taking a late-night (or early-morning) snack break, and several locations are still open! The Plaza Restaurant is open till 3 a.m., offering their all-day menu. If you’re craving a sweet snack, Sleepy Hollow is still serving up the Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich. If you’re in the mood for breakfast bites, try a Cinnamon Roll from Gaston’s Tavern or the Breakfast Platter at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café piled high with sizzling bacon, scrambled eggs and herb-crusted roasted red skin potatoes. Main Street Bakery, Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, Casey’s Corner and The Lunching Pad are all still open if you’re looking for a snack!

Cheers to Me! It’s Dinnertime at Magic Kingdom Park

Lots of guests visit one of our amazing restaurants at dinnertime when visiting a Disney Park, but there are lots of quick options to enjoy too. I decided to head over to Gaston’s Tavern for dinner.

If there is one thing I like even more than a good turkey leg, it’s the pork shank. It’s seriously delicious. And I wasn’t leaving there without the help of a Lafou’s Brew to wash it down. (I told you I was all-in today!)

You might think I was done eating for the day, but you’d be wrong. The pièce de résistance for my Coolest Summer Ever food marathon is diving into the Kitchen Sink sundae from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.

I wasn’t playing when I said ice cream was my favorite food. There is always room for ice cream. Always.

Thanks for reading along all day as I toured my taste buds around Magic Kingdom Park. I hope you enjoyed it as much as my stomach did.

We received so many votes in our Disneyland Resort lunch poll, we couldn’t just choose one place to eat. We divided and conquered!

Erin chose the Pulled Pork Hot Dog from Hungry Bear Restaurant, while Tyler picked up Barbecue pulled pork and slaw cone from Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land. Michelle and Shawn grabbed a quick bite at Red Rockett’s Pizza Port getting the Supernova Pizza Special and Mark V Dessert Waffle. And me? I couldn’t resist Mac and cheese pizza from Boardwalk Pasta & Pizza.

Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration Brings ‘Sweet’ Surprises

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort

Is there anything sweeter than the kickoff to the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration? In my case, yes! There are dazzling and delectable new confections debuting in the candy kitchens at the Disneyland Resort, and I have all the details!

Mickey Minnie Apples 2

These stunning Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse apples are enrobed in caramel, dipped in chocolate and have been dusted in sparkling blue sanding sugar. With final touches of chocolate “gem” buttons and a diamond-shaped bow for Minnie Mouse, these two never looked so delicious.

DL60Candy

Of course, it wouldn’t be a celebration without some of our other fan favorites like the marshmallow wand, krispy treat and the ever-popular cake pops, all of which were inspired by the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration sparkling blue and silver tone theme. The candy makers didn’t stop there, so be sure to keep an eye out for a special Ear Hat Cake Pop featuring a commemorative “60” chocolate lay-on.

Caramelbarsandpecanroll

We didn’t stop there ─ If you were hoping for something more nostalgic, you’re in luck! Chocolate-dipped caramel bars (with and without sea salt) will be available, along with the pecan roll and other delicious treats. Note: These items will only be available at Candy Palace in Disneyland park.

If you are planning to ‘sweeten’ your experience in the park today, visit Candy Palace in Disneyland park; Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure park; and Marceline’s Confectionery in the Downtown Disney District!

What is topping your list of must have treats?

It’s Snacktime: Finding Favorite Treats at Walt Disney World

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center


wdw200p

There are just so many snack options when visiting a Disney Park that the tough part is figuring out just what to snack on. Here are a few of my favorites that are helping me keep my stamina while the Coolest Summer Ever keeps moving on here in Florida.

You scream, I scream, we all scream for six ice creams!

Truth: ice cream is my treat. I would live off of it, if allowed. So when someone suggested eating one of everything from the ice cream cart, I’m game. Have you ever seen me look so happy as I do above? The Mickey Premium Bar continues to be my top pick!

Oh, ice cream not your thing? You want something salty?

Popcorn – you can’t go wrong with this choice at Walt Disney World. It’s the best popcorn on earth in my humble opinion.

nrsfcfa123456

Maybe, a bit of sweet and sour is your game when it comes to picking a snack.

Goofy’s Candy Co.’s Mostly Sour Powder Candy is a fun treat. At the Confectionery on Main Street, U.S.A., I was able to create-my-own by picking my favorite flavors. This snack brings me back to childhood. I can’t even remember the last time I’ve enjoyed a snack like this.

I’ll be back one final time with some dinnertime selections. Yes, I’ll be hungry for dinner – no need to worry! In the meantime, tell us in the comments section what your favorite Disney Parks treat is!

It’s Lunchtime at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center


wdw1200p

It’s lunchtime and I have a hankerin’ for a turkey leg. Don’t mind if I do! I even traveled to Frontierland just so I could snap a shot with my turkey leg while wearing a coonskin cap. It seemed so apropos.

Turkey Leg

When I eat a meal, I often find myself craving something sweet (especially while visiting a Disney Park). This delicious churro sure did do the trick. Afterwards, I burned off some of those churro calories taking a tour of the Swiss Family Treehouse. So. Many. Stairs.

Orange bird drink

I needed a beverage to go with my turkey leg and churro. So I stopped and got a Diet Coke in one of these awesome Orange Bird sippers from the Sunshine Tree Terrace. (I even took a breather after those Treehouse stairs to enjoy it.) Everything tastes better, I swear, when you’re sipping it from inside of one of these awesome beverage vessels!

I’ll be back again soon with some more snackin’ fun.
