REVIEW: Jolly Holiday Bakery Toasted Cheese Sandwich and Mickey Mouse 90th Macaron- Get Your Ears On Celebration at Disneyland
Opening day of Get Your Ears On – A Mickey and Minnie Celebration has brought two new food items to Jolly Holiday Bakery on Main Street U.S.A.: Specialty Toasted Cheese Sandwich and Mickey Mouse 90th Macaron Whether you prefer something sweet or something a bit more savory, you must give these items a try.
Specialty Toasted Cheese Sandwich – $10.99
This sandwich is made up of Swiss, Jack and Fiscalini Cheddar Cheese with crispy Bacon and Blackberry Jam, served with House-made Chips. I really enjoyed the taste of this sandwich. The cheeses were spot on and full of great flavor, and the bacon was perfect. I did not like the jam, however. It tasted too much like jelly for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and I don’t think it added anything to the Specialty Toasted Cheese Sandwich.
However, the bread was a little over-toasted, which made eating this a little tough. If you’re looking for a bit more bang for your buck, go with the Jolly Holiday Combo (Toasted Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Basil Soup) instead.
Mickey Mouse 90th Macaron – $5.99
So this macaron is not listed on the menu for Jolly Holiday, so it doesn’t have an official name. The Cast Member rang it up as “90th dessert,” so I’m hereby calling it the Mickey Mouse 90th Macaron.
As a macaron connoisseur, I did not like this at all. It was way too busy for a dessert. The filling was made up of cake frosting, chocolate ganache, and what I assume to be a lemon filling that did not taste like anything. This macaron was too sweet and not very enjoyable. Skip this and go with the Raspberry Rose Mickey Macaron; it never disappoints.
Unfortunately, Jolly Holiday Bakery did not have the Mickey Mouse Club Hat Dessert as they have advertised in the food guide and on their website. This seems to be a common theme at several of the restaurants in Disneyland. Hopefully, when it does arrive, it will be better than the macaron.
