    Special menu offerings for Gay Days at Disneyland

    What do any of these have to do with Gay Days besides the rainbow-colored goodies?

    Hmmm, chicken and waffles at Hungry Bear (though I can't imagine it being better than chicken and waffles at Plaza Inn), pasta with spicy sausage at Pizza Port, and lobster nachos at Alfresco Lounge (which is hopefully better than what Cove Bar has). Don't think I have time for them all.

    It's a sandwich, so it's allowed to be equally good, because they're totally different dishes

    ... and how does this square with an "unofficial" event that Disney knows nothing, NOTHING, about?

    "Knows nothing about"? Well, of course Disney knows of the existence of the unofficial event. They would obviously know about a group who rents out space in the Grand Californian as a welcome center and where the numbers of attendees is going to impact attendance at the parks so Disney can be (hopefully) prepared with enough working cast members to handle the added guests. But if you ask a Disney employee a specific question about the event, like when and where the group picture is, they're not expected to know the answer, because the event isn't being run by Disney. I think it's great that they're offering special food, especially since that kind of thing draws out the local AP crowd as well.

    Well said! I think it's really fun that they're showing their support for the event and the gay community :-)

    Added a few more details about the various menu offerings. I am so looking forward to the Chicken and Waffle sandwich.

    I talked with one of the chefs today, and he said that if the food offerings are a hit, those "special" menu items might join the regular menu, as the Macaroni and Cheese Hot Dog has at Coke Corner.

    Wish they hadn't made them combos, or at least didn't include the cookie, on the chicken and waffle sandwich and turkey burger. Might have to order it anyway. Will at least have a look-see.

    I know someone that will probably eat your cookie.
    You are witty and clever. I feel this in my heart.

    DH & I decided that "Lobster Nachos" sounded like a euphemism but couldn't figure out for what and were a bit reluctant to think too hard about it.

    Maybe like other combos, you can order without the cookies.

    Where is the Alfresco Lounge located? Do they serve lobster nachos anywhere in the parks on a regular basis? Those sound too yummy!

    The Alfresco Lounge is up the stairs by Wine Country Trattoria. Cove Bar serves lobster nachos.

    I didn't realize that the Cove Bar was actually in DCA (I just looked it up). I thought it was at the Grand Californian. Thanks for the info. We have never been there. It looks like it is on top of Ariel's Grotto from the info. that I am finding. We will have to try it when we go. So much that we have never done yet (evn though we go once a year!).

    Rapunzelthorn- it is on top of Ariel's Grotto. You enter through a gate by the gazebo where they do meet and greets with Mickey (past the main entrance to Ariel's Grotto). It's one of my favorite places to relax in DCA.
