What’s New at Disneyland Resort: EVERYTHING ‘Star Wars’ Day, a Light Up Sipper, and MORE!

Welcome back, DFB friends! We’re here with another What’s New at Disneyland Resort!

Sleeping Beauty Castle

We’ve been hanging around the parks trying out a lot of Tasty (and sometimes questionable) new Star Wars-themed foods for May the 4th, waiting to learn more about the big toontown refurbishment, and hunting for new characters in Avengers Campus. And, to be sure you didn’t miss any of the updates, we’ve got a full breakdown of everything that’s NEW at Disneyland Resort this week — let’s get to it!

Disneyland Park Food Updates

refreshment corner

Disneyland really rolled out the red carpet for the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade! And, along with the adorable (and hard to get) Elliot Popcorn Bucket and Turtle Sipper, guests can also find the Main Street Electrical Parade Sipper too! It’s shaped like a lightbulb and, of course, it glows in the dark.

Lightbulb Sipper

It’s available at both refreshment corner other Red Rose Tavern for $16.29.

See More Photos of The Sipper HERE!

Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor

We also celebrated our Unbirthday at Disneyland by getting the Celebration Sundae from Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlorwhich is made with vanilla cake, hot fudge, choice of ice cream, whipped cream, sprinklesand a chocolate candle in a Mickey Ear Hat Bowl!

The perfect UNbirthday treat!

The sundae was delicious and we love the bowl. Grab it now for $15.49.

Hungry Bear Restaurant

the Peach honey tea slush for $5.99 is a new drink at hungry bear. it’s a Peach slushy topped with honey, sweetened peaches, and whipped cream. We thought it was refreshing and liked the sweetness the honey added.

Very peachy!

We also tried the Chili Mac Cheeseburger for $15.49which is a 1/3 pound Angus chuck patty with Homestyle chili, mac and cheese bites, American cheese, and fried onions. You can choose a side of a Cutie orange, French fries, or onion rings.

Chili Mac Cheeseburger

So here’s the thing — we didn’t LOVE this burger. We found it to be rather dry and the cheese wasn’t as melty as we like. Plus, the chili flavor was SUPER overpowering, so much that we couldn’t taste the mac and cheese bites. But, it still might be worth a try if you’re in the mood for an over-the-top burger with three different meals in one.

milk booth

One of Disneyland’s most controversial drinks got an upgrade for Starwars day! Blue Milk now can come with MANGO if you order up the Blue Milk: Mon Cala Swirl for $8.79 at the milk booth in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. It’s made from BlueMilk other Blue Mango Sour Jelliestopped with a Sour Shimmery Mango Gel.

Blue Milk Mon Cala

We thought that the mango adds an additional nice flavor to the drink and we ended up really liking the drink overall! Keep in mind that this was a May the 4th special, so it may not be available when you stop by now.

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo

Another May the 4th offering was the Ishi Tib-style Pasta with Braised Beef Banthawhich is made with Beef pot roast, coconut curry sauce, pasta, and mixed vegetables for $18.99. But is it worth almost $20? Well, we have to admit that this dish was SO good — everything was so well-seasoned making for a SUPER flavorful bite.

Ishi-Tib-style Bantha Beef Pasta

We even loved the coconut curry sauce. So this one was definitely a win!

Oga’s Cantina

over at Oga’s Cantinawe also tried the Five Blossom Bread, which is a Warm pretzel knot with Hawaiian black sea salt served with honey-mustard cream foam and Calabrian cheese sauce. You know they already had us at CHEESE sauce, but we’ve got to say that even the pretzel was stellar! It’s also a good value because you get two for $10.50.

Five Blossom Bread

We also tasted the Seid Seltzerwhich is Tropical Pineapple Orange Hard Seltzer. It didn’t blow us away, but it was okay. We didn’t necessarily think it was worth $13.25.

Seid Seltzer

However, we DID like the Black Squadron camp for $14.25which is Golden Lager with a touch of Honey. It had a nice mellow flavor, and the honey added a nice touch.

Black Squadron camp

All three of these were May the 4th specials, so they’re not around long — but, we can only hope that those pretzels return next year!
