8 NEW Pixar Fest Foods at Disneyland You Can’t Miss!

Disneyland Resort’s first ever Pixar Fest brings the world of Pixar films to life in countless ways. But there’s only way to let your belly join in on the festivities–FOOD!! Sure Disneyland has rides and surreal sights to see, but you need to plan at least one day just to take in all the scrumptious food!  Disneyland Resort Pixar Fest offers fun and delicious eats and treats with a sweet Pixar theme. Pixar Fest arrived at Disneyland Resorts April 13, 2018 and will run for only a limited time. You won’t want to miss these creatively themed food and beverages available only until September 3, 2018.  Here’s our favorites from Pixar Fest (but trust me when I say there’s so much more!)

 

Fried Bologna Sandwich

Inspired by the film “Up”, you can find this yummy fried bologna sandwich on Main Street inside Disneyland, at the Carnation Cafe. (Even the President of Disneyland Resorts was surprised at just how yummy this was!)

 

“Coco” Churro

Inside Disneyland, walk your way over to Frontierland and enjoy a “Coco” inspired chocolate churro! This fried yummy goodness is rolled in rich chocolate powder, vanilla bean and salted cinnamon sugar served with spiced, Mexican chocolate dipping sauce.

 

“Toy Story” Root Beer Boot Float

You can be sure that no snakes are in this boot at the Golden Horseshoe Saloon in Disneyland.  Served in a souvenir Woody boot, you won’t want to miss checking the bottom for a “Toy Story” memory.

 

“Monsters, Inc.” Chilled Noodle Salad

Use the special sauce to activate these monster noodle colors! With mint, thai basil, shredded daikon and tofu you’ll be happy you stopped at the Lucky Fortune Cookery in Disney California Adventure Park for this cool salad.

 

Pixar Fest Celebration Cake

This vibrant Pixar Fest celebration cake can’t help but bring a bright smile to your face. Found in both parks, you can’t miss this gorgeous treat. If in Disneyland, head over to the Plaza Inn. If visiting Disney California Adventure, visit Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta, Paradise Garden Grill and Pacific Wharf Cafe.

 

“Toy Story” Alien Macaron

Need I say more? Your kids (or maybe you?!) will be bouncing these little aliens around the table. I’d pay you $5 if you can get through eating them without someone saying “THE CLAW!!”. These cuties will be found in Disneyland at the Alien Pizza Planet in Tomorrowland (along with quite a few other Pixar inspired food such as the Green Star Pesto Pasta and Cheeseburger Pizza).

 

Pixar Themed Cake Pops

Found throughout Disneyland Resort in any bakery or candy kitchen, you’ll be enamored by these adorable cake pops. You’ll want to be sure to stop in every bakery to find your favorite characters. We couldn’t get enough of Nemo and Lightning McQueen.
