We are SO happy to have the Main Street Electrical Parade back at Disneyland. Last night was the first night of its return so we headed to the park to get some dinner and grab a spot for viewing. With the return of the parade, Disneyland has released some Main Street Electrical Parade themed merchandise and treats! By the time we got to the parks, a lot of the treats were sold out so we’ll have to come back to try some of the deliciousness! The Main Street Electrical Parade is only here for a short time with two shows a night until September 30th. Hurry to the parks, you don’t want to miss it!
Today is the last day to enjoy all the deliciousness at the Food & Wine Festival in DCA. We bought the Sip and Savor Pass ($49 with AP discount) which we love doing for all of the food events that take place at DCA. We were able to mosey along to each vendor, try what we wanted and come back at a later date to try some more! We really enjoy trying all the different foods – we’ve posted some of our favorites below!
It was a bit chilly when we first went to try some food so we decided to stop and get the Fiscalini White Cheddar Lager Soup from the Nuts About Cheese booth. The soup was served in a mini Boudin sourdough bowl so you could eat every last bite of this delicious dish.
Close by was the California Craft Brews booth where Cody got the Karl Strauss Brewing Company, Columbia Street, Amber Lager and Courtney got the Pepperoni Pizza Egg Rolls. I’ll say this now, us three siblings all have very different tastes in what we like and what we agree on. These egg rolls are something we will never agree on. I won’t name names but some thought it was amazing and others thought that that person was CRAZY.
Another glimpse into our disagreements of tastes… Kenzie was not sold on the Esquites Sweet Corn Nuggets but Courtney loved them so much she had them twice! Also, Cody loves Churros (not part of the Food & Wine Festival but worth noting).
Like I mentioned before, we love taking advantage of our Sip & Savor Pass. We went back to DCA on another weekend to eat more food!
These next few vendors had some of our favorite dishes from the festival.
- The Spice Roasted chicken on Pita with Avocado Hummus and Garlic Sauce
- Artichoke Toast with California Olive Tapenade
- Deconstructed Teriyaki Chicken Musubi with Pineapple Relish
Some honorable mentions:
- Asian-Style Beef Barbacoa Taco with Pickled Ginger
- Chocolate Crunch Cake
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Churro
Posting this made us hungry…Until next year Food & Wine Festival!!
Last weekend, we ended our day at the park with a purchase at the Castle Holiday Shoppe in Fantasyland. The cast member helping us asked if we were annual passholders (we are) and then she asked us what our favorite part about being an annual passholder is. We haven’t been asked that question in a loooonng time and it made us think…what IS our favorite part about being annual passholders?
Kenzie: “You can be a little spontaneous! Many times when Courtney and I have been down in Orange County visiting our parents (and the dogs), we’ve made a pit stop for some churros or popcorn. We used to do it in High School too, after class we’d go to Disneyland for the night and just hang out. No pressure, no plans.”
Courtney: “My favorite thing about being a passholder is being able to go to the park any time. We can go just for dinner or to catch a parade or show that we haven’t seen in a while. Also, we get to experience Disney year round, through every holiday. I can’t wait to see the park all decked out for Christmas! It’s my favorite”
Cody: “The Food. That’s not really an annual passholder answer but my favorite part is the food…”
