What’s New in Disneyland: Meeting RARE Characters at an Exclusive Event!

Disneyland is wild, y’all!


But what else would you expect from the place that gave us Pickle Corn Dogs? Or where you can literally eat INSIDE a Disneyland attraction? Or meet Marvel superheroes (and villains) on their own turf? How could we not love it? So what’s been happening with Disneyland lately? Let’s find out!

Disneyland Food Updates

Refreshment Corner

We tried out the Rocket Sundae for $6.99 at Refreshment Corner. It’s a sundae made with cherry and lemon sorbet topped with blue raspberry marshmallow creme, and sprinkles. Yes, it’s a very…interesting…flavor combo.

The Rocket Sundae!

We ended up liking it, though, despite the oddness of the flavors at times.

Disney California Adventure Special Event Updates

We got to attend the Disneyland After Dark: Grad Nite Event in Disney California Adventure, and it was a blast! We saw some unique entertainment, grabbed some super cool photo ops with characters, and ate some fun food and snacks, like the Cheeseburger Mac Burger from Smokejumpers Grill for $8.99. It’s covered in cheese, so yes, we loved it.

Look at all of that cheese!

We also nommed on the Cherry CONE-vertable made with vanilla soft serve in a cinnamon bread cone and topped with warm cherries. It was available for $7.99 at Cozy Cone Motel. DELICIOUS!

Then there was pizza — we grabbed a  Stupendous Sriracha & Bacon Pizza Slice from PYM Test Kitchen for $14.99 . This is a super unique snack.

Time for pizza!

At Terran Treats, we grabbed the Unicorn Raspberry Cheesecake Ration. This was probably our least favorite of the snacks, but it’s available now for $7.25.

Did we mention we got to see a lot of characters? Many of these characters are rare, too, like Professor Ludwig von Drake!

Talk about rare!

We also got to see classic characters like Chip in their best grad outfits!

The cutest little graduate.

Needless to say, it was a fun night!

California Churro Co.

Disneyland is celebrating Halfway to the Holidays, which means you can get some holiday treats RIGHT NOW. So we picked up the Peppermint Churro, which is a churro rolled in crushed peppermint and drizzled with a mint frosting topped with peppermint candy pieces.

So how was it? Well, it was very minty! For $7.99, it’s a must for peppermint fans!

Blue Ribbon Corn Dogs

In keeping with the Halfway to the Holidays celebration, we also had a holiday-themed corn dog — like, we didn’t even know that was a thing! Meet the Christmas Dinner Corn Dog, which is a turkey hot dog hand-dipped in batter, rolled in panko breadcrumbs, and served with a side of cranberry sauce for dipping.

Christmas Dinner Corn Dog

Christmas dinner in a corn dog, y’all. But it was really good and we even think we prefer the turkey hot dog over the usual hot dogs inside corn dogs! You can grab it now for $14.50.

Here Are Some BIG Food Updates — Including a NEW Late Night Menu — in Disneyland!

Those are all the updates we have this time around, but we’ll be back soon with more. In the meantime, if you’re headed to Disneyland soon, be sure you’ve made those park pass reservations in advance. Summers tend to be busy, so you don’t want to forget and not be able to get into the park you want when you want.

You’ll also need to make yourself familiar with the Disneyland app, as well as Disney Genie (and you’ll want to consider purchasing Disney+ if you want to skip the lines at rides).

We’ll keep you updated on ALL Disney news, so stay tuned to DFB for more!
