** Late Night and Early Morning Snacking at the Disneyland Resort during One More Day / Leap Day ** Courtesy of the Disney Parks blog http://tinyurl.com/88kbq8h (I haven't seen anyone post this yet when I looked up One More Day or Leap Day, so I thought I'd share. My apologies if it has been mentioned already.) : One More Day From 11 a.m. to midnight, French Market restaurant will be offering shrimp pasta and red beans and rice. From midnight to 3:30 a.m., the menu changes to chicken gumbo, corn chowder, French dip sandwich with N'Orleans chips, shrimp salad sandwich with carrot-citrus slaw and bananas Foster cheesecake. For a more serious dining adventure, at Blue Bayou from 4 p.m. to 3 a.m. you can order a fancy roasted bourbon shrimp stuffed with Dungeness crab mousse served with angel hair pasta and spinach in a smoked tomato-habanero-artichoke sauce. Or prime eye of round with two quail eggs, roasted cauliflower and potatoes, Brussels sprouts and a cabernet sauce. If you remember when Cafe Orleans used to serve breakfast (three-cheese Monte Cristo French toast, anyone?) you'll want to be sure to head over any time between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. for specials from their former breakfast menu: scrambled eggs, Creole eggs benedict, three-cheese Monte Cristo French toast, lump crab quiche, bananas Foster French toast and fresh fruit with yogurt and granola. Other spots to find late-night snacks from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.:
*Cherry pie at The Golden Horseshoe *Chili cheese corn dog, fries and cherry pie at Stage Door Cafe *Brownie and krispy skewers at Bengal Barbecue *Green chili cheese blue corn tamales at Rancho Del Zocalo Restaurante *All-beef mac'n cheese hot dog with bacon bits at Refreshment Corner *Creamy lobster bisque at Jolly Holiday *Pot roast and chicken sampler at Plaza Inn *Chorizo and egg breakfast pizza at Redd Rocket's Pizza Port *Spicy chipotle chile turkey burger and onion rings at Tomorrowland Terrace. You should also know about the chili cheeseburger with fries that will be available at Village Haus Restaurant, an homage to a longtime guest favorite known as "The Woodcarver," which has been off the menu for many years. Also, guests visiting Disneyland park in the wee hours of the mornings of February 29 and March 1 for One More Disney Day will be able to enjoy a cup of coffee or some breakfast at select locations which will be opening early on those special days.

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com
unFORECAST for the month of April 2016 Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Apr 4, 2016 3:24PM
