  • REVIEW: Dole Whip®

    Image of soft-serve (left) and the float (right) from Magical Recipes.

    You've all heard of it, and some have even tried it. I present to you the Dole Whip®! Now, you may be thinking, "What's the big deal about ice cream?". Firstly, it's technically soft serve...which is different from ice cream. (I think the big deal is that it's from Disney and it's tasty.)

    To be honest, the treat itself tastes like pineapples. (I would think that's obvious Jordan...) If you're a fan of pineapples, then that's great. If not, then your loss. (Just kidding, but really.) 

    As indicated above, there are two options available, as well as a few other options available at the Juice Bar. You can either just get the soft serve or you can get a float. The difference is size and price. The soft serve is about $4.50 and the float is one dollar more. The float also has pineapple juice poured into it, hence the larger cup. It's actually quite tasty and fun to mix together.

    HONEST TRUTH:

    I find the treat to be a little tart and would probably just get the soft serve. When my wife and I go, we usually get the float and share it. Since it's a potent flavor, that works best for us – seeing as I probably couldn't finish one by myself.

  • Disneyland under $15!

    I know, I know. The title is a little bit misleading... Sorry. When I say "Disneyland under $15" I mean Disneyland food. And yes, it's possible.

    I have compiled a list of menu items, from Disneyland, that are under $15 per person. Some I have tried, others I have not. For the ones that I have tried, I will do my best to leave a review, and picture. Enjoy!

    I've organized the list according to park area, and I've even included some items that sound good to try! If I remember correctly, none of these locations need reservations. You may want to double check on that...

    UPDATE 3/7/18: I'll try my best to photograph and talk about the items below next time I go to DL.
