My daughter Courtney and I just got back from a trip to Disneyland so I thought I’d post a few foodie things about the happiest place on earth! This first one is about their new show in California Adventures called “The World of Color” which is awesome! I highly recommend seeing it if you are planning a trip to Disneyland; Courtney and I actually went twice. If you do go then you might want to consider this: you can buy picnics which come with a preferred viewing pass to the show. You can buy them online at Disneyland.com; they are $15.99 each. The ticket allows you to stand and watch the show in one of their preferred viewing areas which gives you a slightly better view of the show. (I recommend watching from higher up as opposed to closer to the water, it’s harder to see the closer you are. The first time we went, we were right down by the water and I could hardly see a thing so the next time we went, we stayed up higher and it was much easier to see.) Now back to the picnics! There are 4 to choose from and each comes with your choice of a bottle of Dasani water or a Coke product. Courtney and I chose 2 and shared them; they were both surprisingly good.
The first we chose was the “European Antipasto” which consisted of cured meats, regional cheeses, pepperoncini, artichoke heart, sun dried tomatoes, Carr’s water crackers and chocolate dipped Tiramisu.
The second was the “Mediterranean Vegetarian” which consisted of marinated grilled vegetables wrapped in a whole wheat wrap with roasted garlic hummus, raw zucchini and squash spaghettini with first press lemon infused olive oil, vegetable couscous with toasted coriander vinaigrette and lemon layer cake.
The other 2 choices were the “All American” with fried chicken and “Taste of Asia” with salmon.
They also gave us a free World of Color tote bag when we picked up our picnics. You can pick them up anytime between 11 am and an hour before your chosen showtime at the Sonoma Terrace in California Adventures (just look for the WOC picnic signs).
So there is my first foodie tip for you if you are planning a trip to Disneyland; 2 more to follow! (If you are interested in more info on the picnics you can go to http://www.disneyland.com and type in “World of Color picnics”.)
