REVIEW: Our Eyes Saw a Slider, But Our Hearts Saw Spaghetti & Meatballs with Disney’s NEW Snack

Thanks for a little thing we like to call the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festivalwhich brings new snacks, entertainment, and merchandise to the West Coast, we’re finding new treats all over Disneyland!

Smokejumpers Grill

Of course, the festival features a wide variety of special food booths that serve fun new desserts and entrees, but some of Disney California Adventure’s other quick-service restaurants got in on the action, too!

Now that we’ve covered the heavy-hitters at the DCA Food & Wine Festival, it’s time to turn our attention to some of the other food and beverage locations in Disneyland, like Smokejumpers Grill! We found several new seasonal and festival-exclusive items on the menu, so you know we had to give them a try. We went for the Pepperoni Pizza Sliders for $7.99 and the Peach Blueberry Lemonade Cocktail for $13.50.

There are some exciting new additions to the menu!

the Peach Blueberry Lemonade Cocktail is made with Vodka, blue curaƧao, peach-blueberry lemonade, and blueberry-flavored boba balls. It what very sour and had a strong fruit flavor (we mainly tasted peaches). the vodka flavor was present, but not overpoweringbut the blue curacao stood out the most. As with most of Disney’s boba beverages, the little boba balls got stuck in our straw a few times.

Slider and Peach Blueberry Lemonade Cocktail

our Pepperoni Pizza Sliders contained on Angus beef & pork sausage patty, pepperoni, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and fried pepperoni. It’s served on a ciabatta slider roll and topped with pepperoncini. At $7.99we thought it was a little smallbut if you’re looking for a little snack, this might be it!

Pepperoni Pizza Sliders

We were pleasantly surprised by this slider! the meat was cooked perfectlythe bread had an excellent texture (and it wasn’t dry!!), and there was an even ratio of pizza sauce to meat. If you hate spicy things, be aware of that the pepperoni had a slightly spicy flavorbut it wasn’t burn-your-mouth-spicy at all. Interestingly, all the flavors in this slider tasted sort of like spaghetti and meatballs!


jumpsuit, we were quite happy with both new items on the menu here at Smokejumpers Grill! If you enjoy a tart, fruity cocktail, or a warm Italian sandwich, visit this restaurant at Disney California Adventure. In the meantime, stay tuned for more food reviews, Disney news, and more!
