So, living in Southern California I have been to Disneyland more times than I will ever be able to count. I've owned multiple season passes throughout the years and have pretty much ridden every single ride, watched every single show, and eaten every type of food. I never pass up a chance to go to Disneyland ever, so when Jordan and Shaun told me that on Sunday we were gonna go, I got all kinds of excited.
I sadly had to work for part of Sunday but got off around 2 and drove down the 5 to The Happiest Place on Earth. Parking was horrific and it took me awhile until I was in the park. I met them and our friend Joanna in Downtown Disney at Tortilla Jo's for some pre-park nosh.
Tortilla Jo's is over priced, sub par Mexican food, served by bitter waiters. I had the Grilled Steak Torta with a side of guacamole, some nasty kind of slaw I didn't eat, but surely paid for and some black beans that weren't too bad. I washed it all down with an overpriced salty margarita that I asked for frozen, yet came on the rocks.
We decided that we would start in Adventureland first.
Now I know this is a food blog, so I'm going to stick to blogging about some of my favorite things in The Magic Kingdom. One will be hard pressed to find a better treat in the summer than the Dole Pineapple stand located just outside of The Tiki Room.
Here you will find the ever lovely Dole Whip and Dole Whip Float. I prefer the latter. It's all the wonderment of the normal Dole Whip, floating in a refreshing glass of pineapple juice.
Farther up the path into Adventureland you'll pass past a small trading post type store right next to the Jungle Cruise. It is here you will find the most delicious pickles in the history of the world.
My other favorite thing at the park that we didn't get around to are their turkey legs. They are huge smoked turkey legs for only $7! Which seems rather expensive, but for the amount of meat you get, I think it's the best deal in the park.
The last thing we ate were delicious deep fried corndogs.
The corn dogs at Disneyland are like a freaking footlong, dipped in a cornmeal batter and then deep fried.
They come with an option of either a bag or chips, or sliced apples! Which is totally awesome that they have a healthier option, even if it comes with a huge deep fried hotdog.
