Every Role a Starring Role - Disneyland Resort Environmental Integration Representative

This installment of "Every Role a Starring Role" from Disney Parks spotlights cast member Helen Jaco, an environmental integration representative at the Disneyland Resort. Helen helps reduce waste at the Disneyland Resort by working with various departments to increase environmental awareness and help them find creative ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

This is a particularly timely topic since April 2014 has been designated "Earth Month" (April 22 is Earth Day).

Taste of Disney: Rack of Lamb from Blue Bayou Restaurant

More Disney food fun!

In this episode from the "Taste of Disney" series, Chef Jesse Tiscareno demonstrates the steps to making the Herb Panko-Crusted Rack of Lamb as offered by the Blue Bayou Restaurant in New Orleans Square at Disneyland, starting with a rich rosemary jus made with red wine, then a hearty white-bean stove-top cassoulet, the perfect pairing with the rich lamb.

You can practically smell the yumminess!

Disneyland Corn Dogs, the Untold Story!

When we did the "Dinner and a Show" event, some members of our group decided to get Disneyland's famous corn dogs for their dinner entree.

In this video interview from 2010, Gary Maggetti, who was at that time Disneyland's Food and Beverage Director, talks about the unlikely history of the Disneyland Corn Dog.

Of course, now the Little Red Wagon and Corn Dog Castle are well established as THE places to get your corn dogs in, respectively, Disneyland and California Adventure, as well as the Stage Door Cafe in Disneyland next to the Golden Horseshoe Saloon.

Genie Appearance at Disneyland

Tonight the Disneyland Fan Club Meetup Group held a "Dinner And A Show" event. First, we got a bunch of tables over at Pacific Wharf next to the Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill restaurant, and people got their favorite foods from the great selection of local venues.

There are a lot of delicious food sources in the area. Besides the Cocina Cucamonga, Lucky Fortune Cookery, Pacific Wharf Café, and the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop, which are all located right on the Wharf, eateries like Award Wieners, the Corn Dog Castle, Paradise Garden Grill, Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta, and many others are located nearby.

After dinner we all went to the late showing of "Aladdin" at the Hyperion Theater in Hollywood Land. The show is a Broadway-style musical based on the classic animated Disney film, Aladdin. The Genie is the star of the show, and his lines are constantly updated to include current events. Not to be missed!

The folks at "Positively Mommy" were at Disneyland recently and ran into the Genie character just inside the entrance. This was a very rare occurrence! The Genie is not often seen, especially on the Disneyland side! Here's the video.
