It’s almost the most magical time of the year – the Holidays at Disneyland Resort begin Nov. 9! Yesterday, we gave you the Foodie Guide to Disney Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure park, but did you know that there’s SO MUCH MORE festive food at all of our parks and resort hotels? That’s right, we’ve got everything from candy cane beignets and gingerbread men to eggnog and holiday cocktails.

Throughout the holiday season, you’ll be able to feast on all of these yummy goodies! For more information on all of the seasonal festivities happening around Disneyland Resort this year, check out the Disneyland Resort website.

To bring more holiday cheer to your visit, many of these seasonal items are available for mobile ordering through the Disneyland App!

Comments

  • Helen, I couldn’t see where to reply to you directly, but I think I have the answers. So I believe Hollywood Lounge is one of the Mad T drink stands over by Monsters Inc ride. Lamplight is the former Cove Bar & Carthay is inside Carthay (although I’m sure you knew that one 😁).

  • You guys should provide a printable guide!

  • Is the Chile Relleno at the Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante Vegetarian?

  • Where is the Hollywood Lounge? I searched for it on the Disneyland website, and it does not come up. Is it the Lamplight Lounge or the Carthay Circle Bar? Those are the only two places I could think of in DCA that might have that type of holiday specific treats.

  • What a really good food report! Thank you….Makes me so hungry though! lol 🙂

  • Usually they post the handmade candy cane dates on the Disney Parks Blog when the Disneyland Resort advertises for all the special food offerings during the Holiday’s.

  • Where are the dates for handmade candy canes at the Disneyland Resort?

    I hope they’re still going to make them this year. Especially after what happened last year. I enjoy coming early to pick up a wristband and buy them each year. Some I mail to my other Disney Parks Facebook friends around the country. They don’t come out to the Disneyland Resort during the Holiday’s. Also cause Walt Disney World doesn’t make handmade candy like Disneyland.

  • Yes! I’m so excited to these desserts. Is the pozle a veggie pozle?

  • Oh wow! I can’t handle all of this goodness! Before seeing this blog, I was just thinking that it would be hard to top this year’s impressive array of Halloween Time foods and creative, whimsical Pixar Fest foods, but if there is any event or season that can rise to the top of the pack and dazzle us with scrumptious treats and savory meals, it would be the fantastic Holidays. I’ve already spotted several things I want to try, and I haven’t even made it past the Main Street restaurants yet! Who knows what else I will set my sights on in the rest of the list?
