Food Friday: Disney Edition
If you're anything like me, when you find something you like, you stick with it. This is especially true of food with myself. My husband just brought up to me the other day that I tend to continuously order the same thing every time I go somewhere. Usually, even after the first visit so I almost never end up branching out.
If you've ever been to Disneyland then you know that you literally cannot go wrong with 3 things: the popcorn, the churros, and the hot chocolate. It's impossible, they do no wrong. I won't lie, 95% of the time that's all I eat when I'm there, but as the years have passed I have shockingly spread my wings to experience the wonderful foods that Disneyland has to offer. I've lived here my whole life so there have been quite a few family trips and even just quick visits when I have a pass. I feel like a good majority of my Disney trips involve eating something delicious. Just recently I've taken it upon myself to try the amazing foods I would have otherwise not known about thanks to @foodsofdisneyland on Instagram. I apologize in advance if you choose to follow them. I warned you!!!
Despite the heat, on one of my days off this week my mom and I decided to have a Disney day. I can't remember the last time I actually went during the day and not at night. It's like two different worlds. We went on Soarin' Over the World (still unhappy about them changing it and losing the orange scent, but I'll get over it in time) and Pirates of the Caribbean (no real Johnny Depp unfortunately), but spent most of our time ducking in and out of air conditioned areas and eating. The key on hot days is hydration and the trick is to ask for a free water cup everywhere you go whether you're thirsty or not! Bonus: if you're at a restaurant, they'll usually give you a free full size cup to go when you ask. Alright, let's get to the good stuff... the food!!
After we got fast passes to Soarin' we decided to get Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas, one of my favorite treats! I'm sparing you the picture because although delicious, no one wants to see that, believe me. We left California Adventure to go to Disneyland, but after going on Pirates we soon realized that most of the food we wanted to try was at the other park so when we made our way back, we stopped at Starbucks to keep us going until we could get food. Which by the way, their new Peach Citrus White Tea Infusion is AMAZING. I also got the cutest cake pop strictly for the adorable factor, but it was actually quite delicious as well.
We walked all of the way to the Paradise Grill, but then realized the "corn on the cob" we wanted to try, was literally corn covered in corn dog batter. I don't know why I had in my mind that it was a corn dog covered with toppings besides the fact that it looked that way in the picture. Anyway, we decided to share a regular corn dog and then walk over to the Cove Bar. My mom had eaten there before, but I hadn't so I was super excited. Thankfully the wait wasn't very long and we were able to get seated in the shade. It was the perfect refresher because the heat was really starting to get to us. Since I am not a fan of lobster, we traded it out for tri tip in their nachos. Oh. My. Goodness. So insanely delicious. My mom got the Piña Colava and I had the White Sangria. Everything we had was amazing and I highly recommend you try it if you're ever at California Adventure!
OH! And before I forget, we also tried the Mangonada from Clarabelle's. I believe it's their seasonal offering right now. It had mango chunks, mango sorbet, chamoy, and tajin. I liked it, but I don't think I'd ever spend $8 to eat it again, if you know what I mean haha!
