Disney foodies are getting excited for a slew of Pixar-themed restaurant openings in Anaheim’s Disneyland Resort. According to the latest data, half-a-dozen exciting eateries will open their doors to the public in the hot summer months this year.
The reason so many of these new treats are Pixar-themed has to do with the opening of California Adventure’s Pixar Pier on June 23rd. As Disney fans undoubtedly remember, this area of the park used to be called Paradise Pier and was originally designed as an homage to California’s beach boardwalks. Once the renovation is completed, however, everything on Pixar Pier will be based on one of Disney/Pixar’s many hit films…including the restaurants, of course.
One of the many Pixar-themed treats fans are looking forward to is a new iteration of the classic “Dole whip.” Instead of being made with pineapple, this new “Dole whip” will be made with lemon and vanilla ice cream. Since this lemon dessert is being sold in the Monsters, Inc. area of the park, guests can add a bit of blue slushy to the drink to make it resemble everyone’s favorite scary monster: Sully!
A few other superb Pixar-themed treats that are set to be sold on Pixar Pier include Toy Story churros, “Angry” hot dogs inspired by “Inside Out,” and “Finding Nemo” candy apples.
For people who want to sit back, relax, and enjoy a full meal, you should consider booking a reservation at the new restaurant Lamplight Lounge on Pixar Pier’s waterfront. Disney travel experts recommend booking a table here as late as possible to get a great view of the World of Color show.
With all these new snack and dining options, it’s going to pretty hard for Pixar fans not enjoy their stay in Disneyland this summer.
