This sandwich is a step above a traditional barbecue chicken sandwich. The cranberry BBQ sauce is the real star of this dish, setting it apart from other various chicken sandwiches.

The cranberry BBQ sauce is just that — equal representation of both cranberry and barbecue flavors in the sauce, which pairs well with the crispy chicken. We do wish there was a touch more barbecue sauce.

And, of course, being a barbecue chicken sandwich, it included an onion ring as well. Overall, we enjoyed this sandwich, and while it may not be worth walking all the way across the park to get it, if you’re in the neighborhood and looking for something that’s slightly more festive, this is your go-to.

A Cup of Cheer – $6.99

This is one of the more interesting looking desserts we’ve had thus far, but not the most flavorful. The orange cream puff on top is delicious, and we wish that we could have an entire plate of these. The orange is subdued in the cream center, though still present.

The cake beneath it, menued as cranberry-orange, is more of a white cake with cranberries suspended in it. The dried cranberries don’t do much to pass their flavor onto the cake itself, leaving it as just a plain old cake that’s not particularly well done.

It still might be worth it to order one of these just for the cream puff.

Christmas Punch – $5.49

Pomegranate, cranberry, and orange juices with Sprite served over ice and garnished with fresh pomegranate seeds, cranberries, and a rosemary sprig

This drink is absolutely beautiful, and a more traditional Christmas treat. The vibrant red drink is very sweet and topped with a hearty amount of fresh fruit. If one is to dive in and drink the punch on its own, it may be too sweet and lacking any of the strong fruit notes that do this punch a service.

Squeezing the giant slice of orange into the drink and enjoying a cranberry or pomegranate aril along with a gulp of punch makes for a great combination and a much more interesting flavor profile.

The holiday season at Disneyland runs from November 11 through January 8.
