REVIEW: New Specialty Sausage and Provolone Burger, Returning Holiday Treats at Galactic Grill in Disneyland

A new burger with sausage and provolone cheese has joined the menu at Galactic Grill in Disneyland. But does it take off or is it a failure to launch?

There’s a lot going on here. Sweet, spicy, meaty, tangy, and herbal, this is just a very odd combination. It’s a good burger and we kept eating just because we were trying to figure it out, and we just couldn’t.

Be warned, it’s a melty, leaky mess. It may benefit from fewer flavors, maybe gathering behind one or two flavor profiles rather than this, which loses the chimichurri.

It’s overpowered by the honey mustard and winds up being sweeter than you would expect for a hamburger. Overall, it’s just kind of… unique. We don’t know if we would get it again, though.

Caramel Pecan Brownie Parfait – $6.99

Devil’s Food Cake, Chocolate Brownie, Caramel Pecans, and Vanilla Chantilly

This dessert returns from 2019.

At first glance, we were pumped for this parfait. After the amazing Darth by Chocolate parfait the Galactic Grill had for Halloween Time, our expectations were high. The topping was cute and the layers are picture perfect. Unfortunately the fun stops here.

We tried to dig into this first since we were so excited, however it was frozen so hard, we couldn’t get past the top layer. So we placed it in the sun for a bit to hopefully soften it up.

After some time in the sun, we still had difficulty getting past the layer of pecans, which seemed to be frozen. After some work, we were able to get a manageable bite.

The flavor was chocolate brownie and really hard caramel covered pecans. It wasn’t bad, however it didn’t knock our socks off, either. The brownie layers are soaked in sweet and condensed milk which did make the brownie layers moist, but also overly sweet. But the hard pecans really distracted from the whole experience and everything just tasted far too sweet to make this enjoyable. A+ for the cute holiday decor on top, but overall this fell flat.

Peppermint-Mocha Frappé – $6.99

Topped with Whipped Cream and Crushed Peppermint Candies

The frappé was available in 2019, then called the Nova Coffee Slush.

The description on this drink is exactly what it tastes like; coffee, chocolate, and mint mixed together into a slush and topped with whipped cream and a red dusting of sprinkles.

As big mocha fans, we loved this. Think mocha meets peppermint, but the mint wasn’t overpowering. Kids who like mocha would also enjoy this. It wasn’t too sweet and we would absolutely pick this up again, especially on a hot day for our coffee/mocha fix.

  1. Okay, the Specialty Burger actually sounds really good, except for me not being a fan of any burger or sandwich (is a “burger” a “sandwich?” — in this case I say yes) sogging the bread before you can get through it. But the flavor profile sounds right if they get get a bread that can stand up to it (this is why never buy a meatball sandwich from ANYWHERE unless I know the bread can stand up to it).

    Like, it actually sounds really good to me, but I don’t know of the bread that wouldn’t have me going to a fork when all I want is a sandwich/burger. If I want a sandwich or burger, I want something that will hold together in my hands.
