Greetings from the West Coast, DFB Friends!


Hello from Pixar Pier!

There is a LOT going on right now over here in Disneyland — Pride Month has arrived (along with a SLEW of new snacks), the Soul of Jazz exhibit has officially opened, Blue Bayou Restaurant has reopened, and Magic Key Pass sales have been paused! Oh, and Fantasmic! and Tale of the Lion King are back! Whew — it’s a lot. But we’ve got ALL the updates from Disneyland, so let’s get started!

Disneyland Food Updates

Blue Bayou Restaurant

After closing back in April, the fan-favorite Blue Bayou Restaurant has officially reopened in Disneyland Park! For now, Blue Bayou is only accepting walk-ins for both lunch and dinner right now (you can join the walk-up list at the podium or via the Disneyland app) and reservations won’t become available until a later date. once again at a later date).


Disneyland’s Monte Cristo Sandwich at Blue Bayou

So, if you were looking for a sign that it’s time to get yourself the famous Disneyland Monte Cristo — consider this it! Just keep in mind that you won’t be seeing any Pirates of the Caribbean’s boats drifting by until June 30th when the ride officially reopens.

Refreshment Corner

We also stopped by Refreshment Corner to try the new Rocket Soda!  It’s made with blue raspberry syrup, Sprite, whipped cream, and cherry flavor-filled boba. Although it’s a sweet drink, we also thought it was refreshing!
