East Coast Eats

A week ago, I was sauntering the streets of NYC and Washington DC catching up with friends and trying to make the most of my downtime from the law convention I was attending. This post is dedicated to my food adventures during the five days I was in/ on the East Coast (thanks for telling me proper grammar Abby Wolf!) 6.6.18 - NYC  1.

Right now,  Pixar Fest is the current theme at Disneyland Resort from now until September 3rd. 1 out of 3 Pixar Fest Snap Filters I found Essentially, there are a lot of themed foods, a few picture and character-meet opportunities, a new fireworks show, and general hype for "Pixar Pier" to open later this summer in Disney California Adventure (DCA). (Disney•Pixar/Disneyland Resort) I spent 12 hours on a Sunday at Disneyland and 3.5 hours on a non-holiday Monday at DCA, and checked out some of the food and fun. Here are my tips to make the most of Pixar Fest: 1. If you can, go with an Annual Passholder  Annual P
