Disneyland Diamond Celebration 24-Hour Event food list – Disneyland park edition

The time is near for the Disneyland Diamond Celebration 24-hour kickoff party happening May 22-23.  Disney just unveiled a list of spectacular dishes being offered to enhance your resort experience . There’s a whole bunch of great menu items from which to choose. It includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts and, of course, snacks. In fact, there’s so much food, there will be two parts to this story. No matter where you’re located in Disneyland Resort, you’re sure to find something great to eat.

Starting down Main Street, USA, in Disneyland, you can head over to Carnation Café for their Country-fried Chicken Sandwich. It’s served on a brioche bun and topped with honey-mustard coleslaw. On the side will be a heap of french fries for a nice carb load.

Travel just a few feet further toward the main hub and you’ll run into the Gibson Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor. There you’ll discover some sweet treats for dessert or a cool snack. They’ll have a spectacular looking Diamond Anniversary Ice Cream Sandwich, which is your choice of ice cream served betwixt two specially decorated sugar cookies. If ice cream sandwiches aren’t your thing, there’s also a sundae that will be served in a souvenir kitchen sink.

How about a little sweet and savory together in one dish? Over at Plaza Inn, a scrumptious plate of Chicken and Waffles will be offered during the 24-hour event. Their famous fried chicken will be served with a trio of Mickey-shaped waffles and maple syrup on the side.

There will also be a Disneyland Diamond Celebration Cupcake being served at the Jolly Holiday Bakery Café. As discussed in our April article “Special 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration food announced for Disneyland,” this cupcake will be lemon flavored. It’s meant to symbolize the Victorian-era theme of Main Street, USA.

Then it’s off to Neverland, oops, I mean Fantasyland! Pay a visit to Gepetto, Figaro, Jiminy Cricket and Pinocchio at Village Haus Restaurant. There you’ll discover the Flatbread Special. This fierly delight includes buffalo chicken pieces, slices of Serrano chiles, and chipotle aioli. There’s enough heat in this dish to start a fire in Monstro’s belly!

To cool things down a bit, sashay your way to Stage Door Café. You can rustle up a Mocha Chip Funnel Cake topped with whipped cream in the shape of Mickey’s head. This chocolatey coffee delight looks like just the ticket to perk up your park experience.

Once you get your caffeine fix, don your best sombrero and shout “¡Olé!” at Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante. Get ready for some urban style grub as they’re offering the famous Street Taco Trio. Why settle for one meat, when you can have three? Beef, chicken and carnitas (pork) sit inside soft corn tortillas and then topped with chopped onion, cilantro and salsa verde. It comes with Mexican-style rice and refried beans crowned with queso fresco, tomatoes, cilantro, as well as onions.

For something entirely brand new, you must go to Hungry Bear Restaurant in Critter Country. Grab a seat overlooking the Rivers of America while munching on a Pulled Pork Hot Dog. Yes, you read that right – PULLED PORK HOT DOG! This never-before-seen dish is a combination of a grilled wiener, topped with marinated pulled pork, citrus slaw, fried jalapeño slices, and fresh cilantro. It’s a truly amazing concoction.

Tomorrowland will have something special for the late night crowd. In a galaxy not so far away at Tomorrowland Terrace, there will be Breakfast Burritos to keep guests filled up. Although no specific list of ingredients have been published, it looks to have scrambled egg, black beans, tomatoes, onions and cheese inside a soft flour tortilla.

Let us not forget the premier destination for Disneyland food lovers – New Orleans Square. Wake up to a plate of Bananas Foster French Toast at Café Orleans. Nothing like a trio of battered brioche bread slices grilled up and topped off with caramelized bananas in caramel sauce. And, what better to have on the side than a few slices of crispy bacon.

The French Market will feature a number of specialties for lunch and dinner. Start off with a N’Awlins Salad, which has a medley of lettuce, slices of apples and yams, candied pecans, lentils, and tart cherries. It’s dressed with a sweet citrus vinaigrette. If you wish for something more substantial, there’s also the Royal Street Chicken Caesar Salad. It has chopped romaine lettuce, citrus marinated chicken breast, shaved parmesan cheese and croutons.

Soup lovers will have a choice between a Creamy Corn Chowder or Slow-Roasted Louisiana Beef Stew. The corn chowder comes dressed with maque choux, which is a Cajun version of succotash that includes roasted corn and black-eyed peas. Beef stew enthusiasts will rejoice at the sight of this savory concoction consisting of carrot chunks, sliced red potato, peas, and mushroom. Both of these soupy delights are being presented in a Mickey-shaped sourdough bread bowl.

The most exciting dish, at least for me, is the Shrimp Po’Boy. Seafood is my thing and when you say “Shrimp,” I say “Yes please!” This Louisiana favorite consists of popcorn shrimp, mayonnaise, lettuce, and sliced tomatoes inside a toasted potato roll. On the side is house-made potato chips (another favorite of mine) and fruit.

At dinner time, take a casual stroll to Blue Bayou Restaurant where they will feature a Creole-brined Bone-in Pork Chop. The picture makes this dish look so good, my mouth is literally drooling at the sight. Atop the meat is a tomato relish and on the side is Boursin-mashed potatoes infused with a roasted garlic flavor, as well as sautéed spinach. The entire assembly is dressed with a champagne pear coulis.
