Food for the Holidays: California Adventure 2021


Last week we looked at the amazing food offerings Disneyland Park has for us this holiday season. Today we're looking at what California Adventure has on the menu! Like last time, we'll split up all of the tasty treats into three categories: food, desserts, and drinks.


Let's start off at Boudin Bread Cart and the Pacific Wharf Cafe for the Snowman shaped Sourdough Bread!

If you're lucky enough to make it to the Lamplight Lounge, try the Stout-braised Winter Short Ribs.

The Pastrami Reuben at Award Weiner definitely has my name on it! (ok, maybe hold the enormous pickle).

Smokejumpers Grill has a Cranberry Turkey Burger that looks like Thanksgiving on a bun! 


The Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream Sundae at Clarabelle's is too cute for words. Covered in crushed peppermint AND Mickey shaped? Yes please. 

The Cozy Cone Motel (cone #1) has a super cute Chocolate Cherry Churro. (Say that five times fast!)

While we're on the topic of adorably fun churros, Goofy's Churro Cart has a Dusted Gingerbread Churro with cute red and green candies on top. 

Schmoozies has a Holiday Affogado with peppermint ice cream.

The Hollywood Lounge has this Blue Lemonade Fizz that looks like so much fun!

Lamplight Lounge has the always festive Holiday Martini. 

The Peppermint Shake at Schmoozies looks like a Santa Mickey!

Smokejumpers has an Apple Whiskey Cocktail that would pair perfectly with that Turkey Burger we talked about earlier. 

What looks good?

Now that you've had a chance to go through some of the best offerings, what looks good to you? What's on your must have list?
