Our Favorite Food This Week: Mediterranean Skewers
Location: Paradise Garden Grill – California Adventure Park
Welcome to this week’s Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods with our friends. This week we head to the west coast and to one of my favorite meals at Disney’s California Adventure. The Mediterranean Skewers at Paradise Garden Grill are amazing. When ordering your skewer you select the meat or veggie and then the sauce. The meat/veggie choices are Grilled Steak, Lemon-Oregano Chicken, Spicy Meatball, and Grilled Tofu with Veggies. After this selection you pick your sauce, they have 3 to choose from Chili(spicy tomato sauce, harissa chili, and garlic), Chimichurri (Fresh Herbs, citrus, garlic and olive oil), and Tzatziki (cucumber, garlic, lemon juice, and greek yogurt). You know me, I had to go wtih the one that I had no idea how to pronounce Tzatziki. Pronunciation or not it was darn good. Your skewers come with rice pilaf, cucumber salad, and pita bread. It’s a big meal so feel free to invite a friend, comment below and I’ll send you my number :).

World of Color is the night time show that is presented at the Disney California Adventure park in the Paradise Pier area. This is an amazing show with colorful water fountains that move in all directions, movie projections on mist screens, and of course Disney music from past and present. The best viewing spots, including those that you have to have a fastpass for, are directly in front of The Little Mermaid Attraction. Be sure to arrive early and be prepared to stand for awhile. About 45 mins before the show starts they require people in the area to stand to allow others to come in and fill in any open area. Besides being able to grab a fast pass you can also reserve a dining experience that includes passes to a viewing location.
A show similar to this will soon join the waters at the Animal Kingdom Park – this show titled “Rivers of Light Nighttime Spectacular” will be the first night time show at Animal Kingdom and will feature floating lanterns, water screens and animal imagery. The show will be in the larger body of water between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest. Dates have yet to be announced on when this will begin but construction is well underway.
Now let’s get to our trivia: How many fountains do you think are used during the show?
These fountains can shoot water 30 to 200 feet into the air, that’s 50 feet taller than Mickey’s Fun Wheel in the background.
Here is our video to you can count 🙂
How many did you count? The answer to this week’s trivia is 1200.
Each fountain is individually controlled for different colored lighting along with intensity and the height and angle of the water. Our video doesn’t give it justice, it is truly an amazing site to see and highly recommended if you are visiting the park. For more trivia be sure to stop by our friends below.
