Specialty Treats and Eats Celebrate New ‘Magic Happens’ Parade at Disneyland

The brand new Magic Happens parade officially debuts today at Disneyland! As part of the celebration at the resort, guests will be able to find some special eats and treats. Here’s a look at what’s on offer.

These brand new bites were created to celebrate the latest addition to the park’s line up of fun entertainment offerings. Since the parade marches right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A., it’s only fitting that these items can be found at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor, Refreshment Corner, and Jolly Holiday Bakery Café. Oh, and did I mention, they’re all available starting TODAY! In addition, if you want to skip the lines and get straight to snackin’, be sure to check out the Disneyland app to mobile order your treats in advance!
