Guests can get ready to embrace their soulful side with some delicious treats and excitement coming to Disneyland Resort this summer. Throughout the month of June, we are continuing our festivities for Celebrate Soulfully with the introduction of some tasty treats, eats, and sips honoring Black heritage and culture.
Multiple locations at Disneyland Resort are serving up selections to highlight Black Music Month with a not-to-be-missed experiences filled with food, entertainment, art, and, of course, music! For foodie fun, Guests can taste test the Chicken-coconut Curry Sweet Potato at Troubadour Tavern hosted by Dreyer’s™ or the delicious Peaches and Cream Funnel Cake Fries from Award Wieners, but that’s not all to take part in. From “Tale of the Lion King” debuting at Disneyland Park on May 28 to live entertainment showing the sweet sounds of classic Black music genres like Doo-Wop and Motown, there’s so much to enjoy at the resort to help you ”celebrate soulfully”!
Now, let’s get to the food!
Starting May 28, Troubadour Tavern hosted by Dreyer’s at Disneyland Park will be filled with special items that join the excitement, many of which can be found on Mobile Order on the Disneyland app. For tasty snacks, try the Salted Plantain Chips or the Berbere-spice Popcorn tossed with a warming blend of spices.
The Chicken-coconut Curry Sweet Potato features a baked sweet potato topped with a Malawian chicken-coconut curry – yum! For a sweeter option, Hakuna Matata Sweets offer up a trio of animal print cookies, including a coconut macaroon, pineapple orange thumbprint, and a butter chocolate chunk cookie topped with cacao nibs and a white chocolate animal print décor. Or for a bright and refreshing treat, try the Nestlé® Outrageous Orange Push-up® frozen dairy dessert!
To complete a soulful meal with one (or all) of these items, add a beverage! The Cardamom Cold Brew is made up of cold brew coffee, brown sugar, and cardamom over ice. The Pride Rock Punch brings together Gold Peak tea, pineapple, mango, tamarind, and orange juice over ice. Talk about refreshing. All great options to grab and enjoy while you take in a performance of “Tale of the Lion King” at the Fantasyland Theatre!
Now, let’s take a little trip over to Disney California Adventure Park where Award Wieners has some treats featured from June 1 through September 2. First up, the Foot-long BBQ Pulled Pork Dog puts an all-beef foot-long hot dog on a toasted bun topped with BBQ pulled pork, fried onions, and a creamy slaw. If Guests are looking for a sweet finish, the Peaches and Cream Funnel Cake Fries dusted with cinnamon sugar and finished with whipped topping and peach glaze drizzle is a must-try.
Starting June 1, the GCH Craftsman Bar at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa has a dish and a cocktail for Celebrate Soulfully. If the Jerk Seasoned Beef Tenderloin Skewers & Coconut Shrimp with raspberry rum sauce sounds tasty, consider getting the Summer Cocktail also to try all the specialty items! This delicious refreshment perfectly combines Parrot Bay Rum, Svedka Vodka, orange juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine.
Plus, the Downtown Disney District has some tasty treats for Celebrate Soulfully too! Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen® has a delicious Peach Pie Old Fashioned. This drink has Uncle Nearest Whiskey, a splash of Peachtree Liquor, a dash of Peychauds Bitters, brown sugar, and peach. In addition, there are some food trucks joining in on the celebrations June 1 through July 4. Bred’s Nashville Hot Chicken truck is serving up some delicious spicy fried chicken options, so if Guests like some spice, this is for them. Happy Ice will also be rolling in to feature Ultra-premium Philadelphia Italian Ice treats as a perfect tasty option to have some fun and stay cool!
