Fall is the best time of year for some fantastic eats and treats at the Disneyland Resort! From new menu items to fun novelties, there’s sure to be something for everyone in your party! Let’s take a look at what’s new this month:
If you’ve been to the Disneyland Resort parks, you may have noticed a spooky array of themed novelty popcorn buckets, sippers, glow cubes, and more for the Halloween season. Halloween is just days away, so you’ll want to grab these before they’re gone forever! At Disney California Adventure park, you can find the Oogie Boogie premium popcorn bucket at various carts throughout the park, and at Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge, you can sip on a Poison Apple-tini that features a beautiful smoky quartz poison apple glow cube. You can also purchase a three-pack of cubes that includes red, green, and purple poison apple glow cubes.
If you’re a fan of cotton candy, like my husband is, then grab a “Maleficent 2” light-up cotton candy wand! Find it at Town Square in Disneyland park and at Buena Vista Street and Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure park.
At Disneyland park, you will find a fun Jack Skellington Sipper at Royal Street Veranda or Harbour Galley. You can also celebrate Dia de Los Muertos at Rancho del Zocalo with a Coco-themed mug filled with yummy Mexican hot chocolate. And at both parks, you can find purple poison apple glow cubes and a purple poison apple mug at various carts, kiosks, and quick-service restaurants.
If you’re hanging out at the resort hotels, head over to Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel. There you’ll find the Hatbox Ghost Tiki mug. It comes with an eerie concoction called Grim Grinning Grog, which features pineapple-mango dark rum, Bermuda black rum, blood orange, lime juice, a trio of tropical juices, and dashes of aromatic bitters (non-alcoholic version upon request).
Now, let’s talk new menu items at Disneyland park! If you’re a fan of plant-based food, then you’ll be excited to learn that Harbour Galley will be offering a couple of new plant-based dishes for a limited time this weekend, Nov. 1-3. The first is a plant-based pozole soup with slow-roasted tomatillos, hominy, and serrano chiles served with limes, onions, radishes, and shredded cabbage. You can also grab a plant-based spicy lentil chili topped with onions and served in a bread bowl.
Also, this weekend at Disneyland park, you’ll be able to find a few dapper dishes offered just for the weekend, Nov. 1-3. At French Market, you’ll find Bowtie Pasta with caramelized beef, sweet onions, herbs, and mushrooms in a cream sauce. Or if you’re dining at River Belle Terrace, you can order the Hot Brown Sandwich – an open-faced turkey sandwich on parmesan garlic toast topped with cheese sauce, fried pork belly, and green tomato.
We can’t forget about Disney California Adventure park! It is also joining in on the dapper fun with a special cocktail offered at the upstairs bar at Lamplight Lounge featuring a refreshing mix of Italian aperitif, hibiscus and elderflower liquors, and fresh lime juice complemented with agave, cucumber, and mint and finished with an egg white. Both upstairs and downstairs, you can find chicken wings tossed in a mango-chipotle-spiced rum glaze and served with crushed tortilla chips and cilantro.
And finally, at the Alfresco Tasting Terrace, sip on a Rosemary Gimlet with gin, lemon juice, and rosemary and nosh on a Roasted Garden Flatbread with roasted shallots, blistered tomatoes, gruyere cheese, lemon-thyme ricotta sauce, arugula salad, and Abbey Ale reduction. And don’t forget – these dapper items are only available Nov. 1-3!
Lastly, if you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, look no further than the crunchy new offering available for the month of November. All candy shops across the Resort will offer the Harvest Brittle which features cinnamon, almonds, pecans, cashews, and cranberries.
