Festival of Holiday 2018!

Aside from all the decorations and the holiday parades I love to hop on over to Disney California Adventure and get my foodie life on at the Festival of Holiday! The first item that I purchased was a sip and savor pass which cost $49 for AP holders then I looked over the menu and started my foodie journey.

  • Braised pork belly adobo with garlic fried rice
  • Beef pot roast on a potato bun with horseradish creme
  • Holiday ham Shank with brown sugar pineapple glaze
  • Holiday Punch with lime sorbet and sprite
  • Chorizo queso fundido with house made tortillas
  • Holiday Mickey and Minnie cookies
  • Nashville Hot Fried Turkey with Dill Pickle
  • Pazole rojo beef with hominy polenta

They were all really good except I learned I don’t like horseradish other than that I do have my top three favorites, which are:

Holiday ham shank with brown sugar and pineapple glaze, Chorizo queso fundido with house made tortillas, and the Nashville hot fried turkey with dill pickle. Honestly, If I had anymore time I would have waited in all those lines just to get those three dishes. They were just amazing and 100% regret not getting them again.

#Halloweentime At The Grand Californian Hotel!!

In the lobby of the Grand Californian Hotel and Spa is where you can find a spooktacular Holiday cart in the lobby serving some sweetly spooky treats. There are Mickey shaped cookies, Halloween whoopie pies, jumbo cake pops, pretzel rods, a box of witch fingers and a pumpkin pound cake. These treats and a Halloween treat and an amazing pumpkin patch display which is amazing you can check out even if you are not a guest, unlike the pumpkin bucket.

Plaza Inn Halloween Treats 2018!

You can find three spooktacular treats at The Plaza Inn on Main Street USA. They all cost $5.99 each, so make sure you save some room after the fried chicken!

Main Street Mickey’s Pound Cake:

  • Blueberry compote filling and cookie crumbles surrounded with whipped cream and topped mint with black sugar turning the cake into a jack-o-lantern.
  • Chocolate Hazelnut Yule Log:
    • A returning specialty of the holiday season. A chocolate cake with a hazelnut frosting and a delicious and spooky frosting.
  • Halloween Minnie Mouse Cake:
    • Cinnamon and praline bundt cake with an apple center finished with an orange colored glaze and sprinkles.
  • These are super delicious but my favorite has to be the Chocolate Hazelnut Yule Log which is crazy because I’m not a huge hazelnut fan but this just is perfection to me. Do you dare to try these spooky treats?

    If it like the viewing package for the Electrical Parade its a standing view area, but I still had an amazing time with that one as well. Will you do book this dining package or will you pass?
