Late-Night Snacking at the Disneyland Resort

posted on May 23rd, 2015 by Rachel Brent, Food & Beverage Marketing Communications Coordinator


dlr330am

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?

The Rabbit Hole has opened and the House of Cards is stacked for a funderful Diamond Mad T Party in honor of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. And have you seen some of the surprises our mischievous hosts Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum brought back from inside the magical Disney vault?

The party continues through 1 a.m. here in Hollywood Land, with the Mad T Party Band and Hottest Deck in Town dance crew. That won’t be the end, though. The White Rabbit DJ will keep spinning splendiferous tunes all the way to 5 a.m.

New Artist Sketch Debuts for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration

posted on May 23rd, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


dlr130am

Earlier today, I checked out Drawing Disneyland: The Early Years – Imagineers Who Helped Bring Walt’s Dream To Life exhibit at The Disney Gallery in The Disneyland Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln attraction. So I figured why not make the hop, skip and a jump over to Disneyana Gifts to see what else is happening – and I’m glad I did! Our talented teams of Disneyland Resort Sketch Artists have very busy creating what I consider a “diamond in the rough” – because it’s a sketch, of course. Take a look!

Special Tip: Have the artist add a personal touch to your sketch by adding a special date, name or message.

If you’re curious where to find the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration artist sketch and other favorites, visit Disneyana in Disneyland park or Off the Page in Disney California Adventure park.

Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration Brings ‘Sweet’ Surprises

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


dlr430

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?
