We LOVE visiting the parks during the holiday season, it just doesn’t feel like Christmas until we’ve been to Disneyland! Every year we watch the Christmas Fantasy Parade… we typically grab a snack (popcorn, pretzel, churro. What’s your vice?) and mosey on down Main Street to find a spot for viewing. There were a lot of new foods to try this season, so we did our best and tried as much as we could! Lots of peppermint and eggnog treats were consumed… You can see more of our Christmas at the parks below!
The gingerbread cookies in the parade are just as cute as the ones at Red Rose Tavern!
The look of love…and an eggnog mustache. We weren’t kidding when we said that we consumed a lot of eggnog treats. We tried the Holiday Frozen Eggnog from Red Rose Tavern, the Eggnog Latte Cheesecake from the Jolly Holiday Bakery and these Churro Bites with Eggnog Gelato from Hungry Bear.
Now on to one of our favorite treats from this past holiday season. We found out about these Churro Sundaes from the Golden Horseshoe during their last run for Halloween. We were sad that we didn’t have more time together SO when we found out that they were making a comeback for the holidays, we were first in line. We loved this one so much that we decided to recreate it at home! (you can see how we did that here)
The best part about this sundae is the caramel filling inside of the churros. A very sweet surprise…as expressed by Courtney below.
Cody loves going into the Penny Arcade to look at all the sweets. Also, can anyone actually eat a beignet without getting it all over the place?? We loved these Candy Cane Beignets at the Mint Julep Bar.
Kenzie is an avid affogato consumer, so when we found out that schmoozies was putting a holiday twist on their affogato she HAD to get it…even if it was cold and raining.
Some of our favorites from the Festival of Holidays this year.
- Warm Sticky Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce
- Blood Orange Ginger Mule
- Turkey & Stuffing Tamale with Cranberry Relish
- Braised Pork Belly Adobo
- Jalapeño Latkes with Chipotle Crema (spicy)
- Nashville Hot Fried Turkey with Dill Pickles (So friggin spicy)
We’ll miss you Christmas!! Until next time…
