Disneyland - The Happiest Place on Girth

Here is a photo recap of a descent into the caloric wonderland of Disneyland. Some of these food items are seasonal, so they may not be around after October. Overall, everything was pretty dang goooood. Surprisingly really good, sometimes.

Blasphemy, I know. This go-round was more about trying seasonal/things I hadn’t had before. Next time, I won’t let you down.

How were the lobster nachos??? :smiley:

So much alcohol. We used to have to sneak in flasks if we wanted to drink.

Those lobster nachos are a guilty pleasure of mine. Also the fried chicken from Plaza Inn.

Apparently it is a place where if you pay for admission and then pay for the food contained in those pics, you could have had dinner at Saison for the same price.

Nah. I find the actual sword arts which inspired lightsaber fighting immensely more interesting.

Indeed.

Miyamoto Musashi. Book of Five Rings. Kurosawa/Mifune movies. Shogun Assassin. Lone Wolf and Cub manga. Vagabond manga. Kendo! If I had a Chowpup he would take Kendo classes!

Awww… so cynical.

For my son’s sixth birthday, he got to battle Darth Mar. My little padawan was so incredibly fierce and brave. A thousand times better than Saison. And we had Dole whips. :sunglasses:

Shockingly, I’ve never been to a Disney or Disney-esque property and have no interest. I also shudder to think what all that food cost. Dinner Saison indeed !

They were solid, but I don’t neeeed them again. But like @thechez5, I have friends who love them and always get them.

You prolly already know this, but for what it’s worth, there is only alcohol in California Adventure - none in Disneyland. Also, it’s “Darth Maul,” not “Darth Mar” :sunglasses:

Isn’t a dinner for two at Saison +$1,000? How much do you think churros cost???

We lucked out and got a seat at the bar right away. Love it there.

That’s too bad. If you break down the ticket cost per hour (compared to a play, sporting event, etc.) and know where to eat/drink- you can have a wonderful time. I’m thinking one of the grands might like it and you too :jack_o_lantern:
