“Magic Happens” Parade Inspires New Food Including Sweet Treats at Disneyland

Hi everyone!

The new “Magic Happens“ parade officially debuted yesterday at Disneyland after a successful soft opening on Thursday! And of course, with any new offering comes treats and other food items to enjoy while in the park. Since the parade runs down Main Street U.S.A., these items can be found at either the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor, Refreshment Corner, or Jolly Holiday Bakery Café. Here is a look from Disney (in most of the text and all the images) of what is available! And check out our video with a few photos of the parade debut.

At Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor, grab a deliciously sweet afternoon treat – the Dulce de Leche Sundae! It comes served in a waffle bowl with a double scoop of dulce de leche ice cream topped with bananas, caramel, a Mickey sugar cookie, whipped cream and a cherry. 

On the savory side, Refreshment Corner is serving up the Esquite Hot Dog – a foot-long hot dog with crushed corn chips and corn esquite mix topped with cotija cheese and chili-cayenne powder and served with your choice of chips or fresh fruit. 

And finally, at Jolly Holiday Bakery Café, there is another savory item, the Island Pork Toasted Sandwich with Black Forest ham, kalua smoked pork, Monterey Jack cheese, pineapple relish, and cilantro served with house-made chips. 

Of course, also at Jolly Holiday, if you’re craving something to satisfy your sweet tooth, try the Royal Cupcake, a vanilla cupcake with buttercream icing, or the Dia de los Muertos Hand Pie with guava filling.

There is also a new dining package available at Plaza Inn, including lunch with a reserved viewing of “Magic Happens”. All packages include one lunch entrée, one beverage, one Plaza Inn credential, and one voucher that provides access to the parade’s reserved viewing area. For adults, your entrée will include slow-cooked short rib with chimichurri, chicken thigh fried to a golden brown, pesto-infused mashed potatoes, roasted seasonal vegetables, corn relish, and dessert. For kids, they’ll enjoy fried chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, corn relish, their choice of applesauce or baby carrots, and dessert, as well as their choice of a small Dasani water or small lowfat milk. Vegetarian options are also available upon request.
