“True Love” Dining At Walt Disney World and Disneyland for Limited Time Magic

Another “Limited Time Magic” moment is on the way: this time, sweet dining menus just for Valentine’s week, February 11-17.

Another “Limited Time Magic” moment is on the way: this time, sweet dining menus just for Valentine’s week, February 11-17.

The chefs are having fun creating special dishes – both meals for families and special fixed-price dinners for two. Probably the most frivolously fun is the chocolate cupcake with raspberry mousse filling and dark chocolate mousse frosting that’s dipped in more chocolate, then garnished with more chocolate, strawberries and a sweet little rosebud. (These are priced at $4.99, so you’d better buy at least two so you don’t have to share.) The cupcake can be found at Surfside Lounge at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, the Disneyland Hotel Coffee House, Pacific Wharf Café and Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Café at Disney California Adventure park, and Jolly Holiday Bakery Café at Disneyland Park. And we also love the sweet and sour(dough) heart-shaped bread that’s another special at Pacific Wharf Café ($6.99).

For families playing in Disneyland park, how about strawberry and chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast at Carnation Café, and roasted garlic shrimp pasta for lunch? Or there’s spicy glazed salmon with chipotle pineapple glaze, roasted golden and red beets, and mushroom quinoa at Plaza Inn.

Fixed-price dinner for two is offered at both Café Orleans and Blue Bayou Restaurant – the café is doing a three-course “surf and turf to love,” and Blue Bayou’s three courses includes a pork chop stuffed with Boursin and collard greens served with housemade spaetzle. (Note: Blue Bayou is sold out for dinner on February 14.)Another “Limited Time Magic” moment is on the way: this time, sweet dining menus just for Valentine’s week, February 11-17.

At Disney California Adventure park, the Wine Country Trattoria is offering two glasses of sparkling wine with chocolate-covered strawberries. And Carthay Circle Restaurant will feature a fixed-price dinner for two with either grilled filet mignon or sautéed wild petrale sole steamed with tangerine-almond-grape brown butter. (Both restaurants are sold out for dinner on February 14.)

In the resorts, Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel has a fixed-price dinner for two with surf and turf – filet mignon and scallops with lobster mashed potatoes. And Napa Rose at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will create a four-course St. Valentine’s Vintners Meal and also offer a special dinner just on February 14 – details not final for either, but we know Chef Andrew Sutton will delight and surprise his guests. (Both restaurants are sold out for dinner on Feb. 14.)

At Walt Disney World Resort, you’ll find fixed-price “Dinner for Two” at several spots. At The Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, dinner starts with a colossal prawn stuffed with blue lump crab and continues with a filet mignon topped with Cabernet and shallot butter.

Another “Limited Time Magic” moment is on the way: this time, sweet dining menus just for Valentine’s week, February 11-17.

In the resorts, dinner at Artist Point offers a succulent Kumamoto oyster; heirloom beets; cedar plank roasted King salmon, filet mignon or crispy buttermilk-dipped chicken; and Valrhona Chocolate Indulgence with local strawberries. Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort gives you a choice of a New York strip steak, filet mignon, twin lobster tails, Long Island duck or butternut squash tortellini – and if you want a celebratory splash at the end, sip a glass of Champagne or chardonnay (extra cost).

The Wave… of American Flavors at Disney’s Contemporary Resort gives diners a taste of local farms with butter-poached lobster with Florida avocado-heirloom tomato salad; duck confit with Florida candied kumquats; rib-eye steak, and a sweet finish with a citrus-infused truffle torte. And Shutters at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is a trip to the islands with Caribbean conch chowder, seared rib-eye with plaintain and white sweet potato gratin, and a chocolate and strawberry sweetheart dessert.

‘Limited Time Magic’ Brings Delicious Treats for Happy Lunar New Year Celebration to Disney California Adventure Park

While many of us celebrate the New Year on January 1, the Lunar New Year is usually between late January and early February, determined by the cycles and phases of the moon. Best known as “Chinese New Year,” Lunar New Year is also celebrated by the Vietnamese and Korean cultures, and is a time for big festivities.

Disney California Adventure park is joining in the fun with the Happy Lunar New Year Celebration, part of “Limited Time Magic” from February 8-11, with the eateries in Pacific Wharf adding Asian-inspired treats. Lucky Fortune Cookery is adding chicken and veggie pot stickers and pork spare riblets with char siu sauce to its menu, as well as ginger milk tea (a delicious new creation by the Disney chefs) and mini-almond cookies.

Pacific Wharf Café is adding a barbecued pork bao roll, a traditional Chinese steamed bun, along with ginger milk tea and almond cookies. And their popular Chinese chicken salad in a sourdough bowl fits the bill, too.

The San Francisco cart adds the barbecued pork bao roll, edamame, almond cookies and ginger milk tea, while the Boudin Bread Cart is offering a giant loaf of sourdough shaped like a snake, for “the year of the snake.”
