Who doesn’t love photos of theme park food? Disneyland Resort always has great dishes to enjoy and take photos of. I’d like to share some of my favorite dishes, desserts and drinks from a couple locations in Disney California Adventure Park.
Our adventure takes us to Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta, which in my opinion is one of the better priced quick service restaurants in the park. On today’s menu we had the Spaghetti with Meatballs for $9.99 and the Chicken Sun-dried Tomato Pesto for also $9.99 and splurged on the Tiramisu for $5.39.
The Spaghetti & Meatballs is your standard fare, but I was lucky with this dish as it was freshly made. Considering the setup at Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta you can get a plate that has been sitting in the warming area for a bit. However, if you kindly ask a cast member, they will get you a fresh dish if you feel that what’s out on display isn’t up to your standards.
Chicken Sun-dried Tomato Pesto is one of my favorite dishes at the Boardwalk, in this dish they use Campanelle Pasta tossed with a cream based Sun-dried Tomato Pesto. Chicken and Pesto is very hearty and can be easily split between two people. For those on a budget this would be a great option for you
A full meal calls for a great desert! The Tiramisu here is not like the traditional sliced style that you normally see; this was served more like a parfait, but still very good.
I can never leave a Disney park without having a snack. This time around I selected a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar, which I have not had in many years. It will run you about $4.25. Yes, it’s a bit on the pricey side, much like everything at the parks, but it’s a great treat every once and awhile!
For those who love a good Libation or two, the very popular Carthay Circle Lounge & Restaurant has quite a few drinks to enjoy. My favorite is the Dill Gin and Tonic for $11.00 (which is made with Plymouth Gin, Premium Tonic, Zesty Deli Dill Pickle Brine, locally grown Organic Dill, and Lemon Peel). This type of drink will delight Dill Pickle lovers. It packs quite a tart punch, but I highly recommend it!
Now, on to the sweeter side, I had a seasonal drink called Poison Apple-Tini for $13.50 which has Crown Royal Regal Apple, DeKuyper Pucker Sour Apple Schnapps, and Cranberry Juice. Overall the drink is a great after dinner desert drink, and you get a glowing poison apple glow-sphere as a souvenir!
