Disneyland’s Newest Summer Treat Is A Dole Whip Pineapple Split

Disneyland’s punniest ride, Jungle Cruise, just got a major revamp and is now reopened. To celebrate, the theme park is going big on one of their most iconic tropical treats and making a Dole Whip Pineapple Split.

Sold at the Tropical Hideaway just next to the Jungle Cruise ride entrance, this spin on the banana split swaps in slices of fresh pineapple. Generous dollops of Dole Whip are served on top, along with mandarins, strawberries, blueberries, coconut caramel sauce, dried hibiscus, crushed plantains, and toasted coconut.

While supplies last, these will be served in souvenir containers designed to look like one of the boats from Jungle Cruise. It’s available starting July 16th, so if you’re in the park and love the ride, you may want to go for one of these souvenir boats first.

Disneyland’s reopening is clearly in full swing with the new rides reopening and treats that come with those occasions. With the Halloween season at the theme park just around the corner (September 3rd is the starting date), we’re excited to see what else the theme park has to offer after a year-long hiatus.

Knott’s Berry Farm Debuts New Tea Service

If you’re looking for a spot of tea to serve as some respite from Knott’s Berry Farm’s gravity-defying roller coasters, look no further than Mrs. Knott’s famous chicken restaurant. Though the spot is known for their fantastic fried chicken, they now offer Cordelia’s Tea Party within if you’re down for a change of pace.

Cordelia’s Tea Party will offer a variety of herbal, green, and black teas, small bites like an avocado sandwich, and desserts like honey lavender madeleines.

Seating is available Monday through Friday, from 11am until 2pm and reservations are recommended. To make a reservation, you contact the restaurant at 714-220-5319 or visit Knotts.com and request seating via OpenTable, then add “Cordelia’s Tea Party” in the Special Requests box.

I wonder if a spot of tea is fitting to get the appetite charged up for a sumptuous and satisfying fried chicken dinner.

The Three Items You HAVE To Try When Avengers Campus Opens

Avengers Campus opens up inside of Disney’s California Adventure on June 4th, and with it will come a slew of foods with fun and wacky twists.

The theme park crew did a lot of work with the Imagineering team to bring their food to life, according to a Q&A session with reporters, and it shows in pretty much every aspect of the culinary offerings.

Foodbeast got a chance to try out several of the new food items ahead of the land’s opening, and these were the eats that stood out the most to us.

Impossible Spoonful

The new restaurant in Avengers Campus, Pym’s Test Kitchen, is very liberal with choosing which items to shrink and expand to create a mind-boggling dish.

In this case, they have a cocktail fork stabbing a baseball-sized Impossible Foods Meatball, plus a smaller plant-based meatball, along with tiny pieces of pasta plus larger rigatoni, all of which are sauced up and served inside of a bowl-sized spoon.

It’s insane on visuals, but doesn’t skimp out on taste. The meatball, surprisingly, was quite juicy for a meat-free protein option.

Not So Little Fried Chicken Sandwich

Remember those viral two-finger gloves that people would use to eat fried chicken? This bun is essentially an edible form of those, and its size compared to the platter-sized chicken cutlet is comical.

That being said, if you do treat this like a Taiwanese Hot Star chicken filet, and hold the bun while chomping around it, this meal will deliver on flavor, especially with the heat and spices coming from the sauces drizzled on top.

Cosmic Cream Puff

This sweet treat surprised us with all of the little nuances it had. If held in the right sunlight, there’s plenty of sparkly sugar coating the top. When you bust it open, the raspberry cheesecake mousse inside has an extremely satisfying consistency.

When it comes to taste, you would expect a kaleidoscopic cream puff to be extremely sweet. However, the tang of the cheesecake helps keep everything balanced, and while it is still quite sweet, it’s not overwhelming.

Of course, these are just a few of the items available, as shawarma, giant pretzels, unique takes on Caesar Salad, and a slew of unique beverages are also awaiting those anticipating the Avengers Campus opening. Regardless of what you get, each dish is going to make you rethink how the classic it’s inspired by could be eaten.

Disneyland’s Avengers Campus, With Its WILD Food Creations, Set To Open June 4th

After much anticipation, Disneyland’s hyped-up Avengers Campus will finally be opening inside of the California Adventure theme park on June 4th.

Disneyland itself will be reopening at the end of April, which means early parkgoers will have to wait a few weeks before they can step inside the Marvel-themed section of the park.

Once they do, there will be a variety of fantasy-based food located throughout Avengers Campus, a lot of which has been revealed in previous sneak peeks.

The new food vendors include Pym’s Test Kitchen and Tasting Lab, where you can find foods sized both giant and small (plus plenty of beer and cocktails), Shawarma Palace (a restaurant from the first Avengers movie with plant-based Impossible Shawarma), and Terran Treats (located near the Guardians of the Galaxy ride and is filled with churros and other sweet treats).

One of the biggest companies involved in this futuristic food lineup is Impossible Foods, whose plant-based meat will be found throughout the land in the form of meatballs, the aforementioned shawarma, and more.

It’ll be exciting to see this new part of Disneyland open up, and we can’t wait to see what the food will be like as well.

To get into the park, for now, you have to be a California resident, as well as score an online reservation and have an admissible theme park ticket for the date you want to visit.

Disneyland Is Home To This GIANT Pickle-Wrapped Corn Dog

The pickle-covered food hysteria has made its way into Disneyland as the theme park begins its reopening process. Fortunately, their latest hype item, a pickle-wrapped corn dog, doesn’t require a highly coveted admission ticket to obtain.

Called the Pickle Dog, you can find this mashup of fried pickle and corn dog at the Blue Ribbon Corn Dogs stand inside of the Downtown Disney District. It takes an entire pickle, envelops that around a hot dog, and then sends the entire thing to the deep fryer with batter and a panko coating.

According to Disney Food Blog, the entire pickle corn dog also comes with a side of peanut butter for dipping or drizzling, combining the legendary salty and tangy pairing for an epic meal.

Since its initial release, the Pickle Corn Dog has been going viral over social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter. The fact that you can get something as wild as this at Disneyland provides some pretty major intrigue.

Unfortunately, Blue Ribbon Corn Dogs has stated on their Instagram that the corn dog is only around for two weeks. They launched the item on March 17th, meaning that it may be heading off of menus sometime soon.

Based on the reception the pickle-wrapped fair food favorite is receiving, however, maybe the stand will decide to keep it around for a while.

Disneyland Foodies Rejoice, Themes Park Set To Reopen On April 30th

After over a year of closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, Disneyland is officially setting its reopening date to April 30th, 2021.

The news came from a press release from Disneyland, confirming an official reopening of rides and main attractions, including the first proper reopening of the Disneyland park since its closure in March 2020.

Parts of the theme park and resort have been slowly reopening, including Downtown Disney and California Adventure. A Touch Of Disney, a planned food event inside of California Adventure, will also go on as planned through April 19th.

For the reopening, it will be on a reservation and ticket-based system, meaning guests will need to have both a reservation (free to obtain online) and a ticket to enter the park. Per California rules, the parks will also be at limited capacity that can increase as Orange County moves through the state’s tier reopening system (currently, the county sits in the “Red Tier,” which makes it eligible for theme park reopening).

While this does mean space to get in the park will be limited, it is exciting to know that all of our favorite treats, drinks, and Disney rides are on their way back with a concrete reopening.
