Why Is Disneyland Doing A BIG Push On Latino Foods?
Most would think the most magical part about Disneyland are the beautiful fireworks and thrilling rides, but if you’re a big foodie then you’d agree that the most magical part about this theme park is actually the food and drinks.
Among these Disney dishes and drinks, you can find micheladas, pozole, avocado margaritas, Dole whip and more. Speaking of Dole whip, if you really love that stuff, check out this new mitú pin dedicated to the greatest treat created by man. Check out the yummy list below if you (and your appetite) want to be prepared for your next Disney visit.
If you don’t already know what a Michelada is, it’s a cold beverage that include beer, tomato juice, lemon, tajin and sometimes other ingredients based on your preference. These refreshing beverages are sold right next to the Monsters Inc. ride at Disneyland California Adventure. They’re perfect on hot summer days and are said to help cure hangovers (in case you’ve had a little too much to drink the night before your Disney trip).
2. Esquite (corn cup)
If you love the corn on the cob that Eloteros sell, then you’ll for sure enjoy these snack-size esquites. The cup comes with a mix of corn, cheese, lemon, mayonnaise and powdered chile.
3. Deep Fried Corn
This corn is also similar to the type of corn that Eloteros sell, except that this one is deep fried. Also, the corn is topped with Disney’s signature lime cilantro sauce.
This fruity dessert is the perfect treat on a hot day. It includes diced mangos, topped with chamoy and tajín.
5. Chocolate Churro with Mexican Chocolate Sauce
This treat is for all of the chocolate lovers. Not only is the churro itself chocolate-flavored, it also comes with a Mexican hot chocolate sauce. De-li-cious.
6. Strawberry Flavored Churro
This strawberry-flavored churro, also known as the rose gold churro, is amongst the other churros Disneyland offers.
However, if you don’t like chocolate or strawberry, you can also choose from pumpkin spice, cinnamon sugar, apple cinnamon, salted caramel or piña colada.
7. Mango Paleta with Chamoy and Tajín
This treat is very similar to the mangoneada, except that it comes in the form of a popsicle. The mango-flavored paleta is topped with a drizzle of chamoy and layers of tajín.
8. Tres Leches Parfait
This dessert was inspired by Disney Pixar’s “Coco.” The tres leches parfait includes layers of vanilla cake, caramel cream and dark rum. So if you have a major sweet tooth, this dessert will definitely do the trick.
9. Caramel Flan
This caramel-flavored dessert has a similar texture to jello, but is far more creamier and sweeter. During Halloween, this dessert is sold with an orange and pumpkin flavor.
10. Watermelon Lemonade with Tajín
This refreshing beverage gives you the perfect balance of sweet and salty. When you drink it, it almost tastes as if you were eating sliced watermelon pieces topped with tajín.
11. Avocado Margarita
Calling all avocado and tequila lovers! Now you can have both in this ice-cold avocado margarita.
Of course there’s no other pozole better than your family’s home-made posole, but if you’re ever at Disneyland during the winter, you might want to try this out.
13. Coctel de Camaron
If you love seafood, then this little Disney appetizer is made for you. The coctel de camaron is served cold and is topped with a mini crab leg and lemon.
These sopes are only available at Disneyland during the winter season. As pictured in the image above, the plate comes with a side of rice and tortilla chips.
15. Carne Asada and Enchiladas
You can find this delicious dish in Frontierland, Disneyland, located between Thunder Mountain and the Shooting Gallery. The plate comes with dices of carne asada, cheese enchiladas and warm tortillas on the side.
16. Tacos de Barbacoa
These barbacoa tacos are wrapped in green tortillas and topped with onion slaw, purple cabbage, pickled onions and habanero sauce. You can find these yummy tacos at Knowhere Eats in Disneyland.
17. Taco Cone
The taco cone is similar to a soft tortilla taco, except that it is wrapped in cone-shaped bread. Inside the bread is refried beans, chicken, molcajete salsa, cotija cheese and lettuce. You can find this taco cone at The Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land at Disneyland.
18. Nacho Fries
If you’ve had carne asada fries, then you’ll be familiar with this dish. At Disneyland they offer these nacho fries with carne asada, chicken or carnitas.
If you arrive to Disneyland starving, then this burrito plate is what you should order. The dish comes with a side of rice and beans, and is certain to fill you up.
20. Wet Breakfast Burritos
This burrito is perfect for all of the Disneyland early birds. The breakfast burrito comes with scrambled eggs, chorizo, potatoes, tomatillo sauce and sour cream. You can find it at the Flo’s V8 Cafe in Cars Land.
