We all love churros, burgers, fried chicken, gumbo, dole whips and so much more at Disneyland because they are staples we have grown up with. Watch out because  Disney California Adventure park will ROCK YOUR SOCKS as you enjoy their premier dining locations. You just can’t wait till these are available to the public June 15th, 2011.  We have not had the chance to check it out yet( we will be there in early June!)  but this is what we hear…..

The Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge.     Open for lunch and dinner the food is filled with best and highest quality of  ingredients (locally sourced produce and seafood and meats from throughout Southern California). The Executive Chef Andrew Sutton from Napa Rose at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa created the restaurant’s seasonal menu, and Chef Gloria Tae, also from Napa Rose, is in charge of  the kitchen.

Want to go for drinks while the kids ride the the roller coaster?  You can hang at Carthay Circle Lounge and enjoy cocktails from the 1920s   martinis, classic punches and more….  appetizers and tapas – international tastes.  Hours for both the restaurant and lounge are 11 a.m.-10 p.m. daily.

Quick bites on Buena Vista Street: 

Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe:  Starbucks coffee drinks; turkey Rueben, Paneer and Roasted Vegetable and Salami with Olive Tapenade, and Roast Beef and Cheddar Sandwiches, as well as  soups including Vegetarian Cream Spinach, Chicken Tortilla, Classic Chicken Noodle and Cheesy Enchilada. Sweet rolls, Pastries and Breakfast Sandwiches are on the morning menu along with specialty coffees.

Mortimers Market:   Cut Fruits, Bottled Water, Juices and Soft Drinks. (According to Disney legend, Mortimer Mouse is the name Walt Disney gave his new creation in 1928. He later changed it to Mickey.)

Clarabelle’s:  Hand-Scooped Ice Cream (Dreyer’s), hand dipped ice cream bars in milk or dark chocolate and you can choose to add  sprinkles, pop rocks and other fun toppings.  Hot fudge and strawberry sundaes and other frozen delights round out the sweet offerings.

Cars Land A snack or a meal you won’t forget! From dill pickle popcorn to chili and cheese –  chili cone queso – in an edible bread cone.  How much fun to dine along  Route 66, and feel like you have jumped into Radiator Springs at Cars Land.

Flo’s V8 Cafe  A “showroom” dining area.  “Chef Sean Layne,  developed the restaurant’s signature vegetarian dish, a veggie-tater casserole that’s sounds delish!!  It’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu for Flo’s is a changing one…   New York Strip Loin, Citrus-Marinated Turkey Breast and Pork Loin flavored with Coca-Cola Barbecue Sauce.  Breakfast specials include brioche French toast with salted caramel and bananas and chicken tamales with scrambled eggs. Craft beers from Bear Republic Brewing Co. in Healdsburg, Calif., and California wines to enjoy!

House-made single serving pies such as strawberry-rhubarb, Apple-Cheddar, chocolate mud, cherry and blueberry-peach, to name a few are the recipes of Disneyland Pastry Chef Jean-Marc Viallet.
