This is how the boyfriend and I spent my valued Labor Day Monday: visiting Disneyland Resort at its regular 1st hour of opening, then delving into Disney’s California Adventure with a sugar high before spontaneously lunching at the Park.
Since Disney’s Pixar Fest partied its last day on Labor Day, we 1st celebrated and indulged during breakfast hours with:
The Pixar Pier Frosty Parfait served in non-dairy Lemon soft serve and an icy swirl of Blue Raspberry. Taste-wise the lemon alone was all that’s needed for the flavorful moment, while the blue raspberry simply looked rather stunning.
The boyfriend couldn’t stop being curious about the Jack-Jack Cookie Num Num located right behind the entrance of the Incredicoaster. Sized bigger than the palm of my 5-Footer hand, I was glad I did not pass and say “no” for my partner to buy and bite into this luscious, soft, crumbly “deep dish” chocolate chip cookie. Had I not prematurely finished my iced coffee, I would have easily stomached this morsel before we eventually moved onto the Disneyland Park side.
While gratefully seating at Cafe Orleans at the 11 o’clock hour, I imbibed on the 1/2 pomegranate lemonade, 1/2 iced tea beverage before I lavishly engorged on Pixar Fest’s 3-Course Meal from the aforementioned restaurant.
Thanks to this Specialty Cheese Flight, my drink was included for the course. Based on the arrangement we figured that the complements would be Fourme D’Ambert blue cheese and dried apricots; Bucheron Goat Cheese and dried cranberries; and P’tit Basque Sheep Milk Cheese and dried figs. The best combination we nibbled on was baa-sking with the fancy fruit — who figured — with hints of candied walnut and/or silky honeycomb.
The familiar-looking, colorful Shrimp Ratatouille Byaldi helped digest my previous intake of that sugar-laden cookie due to its rich tomato base and tender slices of roasted zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant, and of course the notably red one.
Finally dessert was Berry-Stuffed Beignets a la mode topped with sweet Brie drizzle and mascarpone ice cream. Feeling that I over-maximized the amount of sugar I consumed that day, I frankly took 2 bites of this mildly sweet sensation before I hurriedly pushed this cup to my significant other.
We wrapped up our Disneyland Resort visit after lunch to go onward with other shenanigans, but that Labor Day morning was well spent both from our wallets and our #fiamonventures time. Pixar Fest, it was a cordial pleasure to enjoy and have fun with!
