World of Color


A big new feature is coming to California Adventure.  In an effort to get more folks over to the less popular park, they are building a new water fountain spectacular.  I quote: "Designed by Walt Disney Creative Entertainment, this show is planned to have 1200 fountain nozzles with 1200 individually controlled underwater LEDs, one for each nozzle, and is scheduled to include lasers, lights, and fire with a water spray backdrop screen."  It opens on June 10, not sure if I'll be in line that day, but I'll definitely check it out this summer.  I'll be posting more of the preview photos soon.

Dole Whip Float


I think I've mentioned the delightful Dole Whip Float before.  It is one of my most favorite things about Disneyland, and if it were not for distance, I would be popping into the park just for one of these.  To me, they are that good.  You can buy your very own in only one place in the park.  Right outside the Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland, there is a little hut cranking out hundreds of these a day.  There is always a line, and especially so on a long day.  Sometimes you can enter the waiting area for the Enchanted Tiki Room and get faster service from the other side of the hut, but not always.

You can get pineapple spears, pineapple juice, a Dole Whip - pinapple soft serve, or the amazing Dole Whip Float - pineapple soft serve over pineapple juice.  It is entirely perfect on a warm day at the park.
