  • Something new is opening May 5th on the Plaza Pavilion Patio:

    Al gave us the scoop on this a long time ago... that being said, a new "experience" will be located at the "Main Street Fair, Plaza Pavilion Patio":

    Junior Chef Baking Experience
    Presented by Nestle Toll House


    The experience will be a 25 minute "show", five times daily at 11:30, 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 & 3:30 (times subject to change). They will allow 20 guests between the ages of 4-10 to participate in making Nestle Toll House Cookies. Interestingly enough, the experience is *free* and participation is on a first come, first serve basis. In addition to the show, the Junior Chef participants will receive a personalized Chef's Hat, a sticker and a cookie (of course).

    I think it will be a nice and simple addition to the patio and the whole "Main Street Fair" concept, but I am troubled by the age limitation. Disneyland is for children of all ages and this is just one more item to add to the growing list of attractions, events and experiences that are geared explicitly towards kids (to the exclusion of everyone else).

    So... Whachoo guys and girls think?

    WOW, my daughter is going to love it, but wish I could join in too!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

      Agreed. I mean, I can burn up a Toll House cookie FAR more efficiently than a 4-10 year old can.

        My kids will be all over this! Will children be picked from an audience, or is this a line up and get in type of experience? It would be easier if we would be able to have both kids do it at the same time.
        Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
        I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



        May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

        NO GOATS!

          I asked the Nestle Reps about that, and they didn't have an final answer for me. They suggested it will be a line, but if it proves to be popular, they may come up with alternate methods of selecting young guests.

            Is there an estimated date for introducing this?

            If we are able to get in for the experience, I post a report. You can share my report with the Nestle people if you like.

                Cool!

                Now I have to figure out the next time we will be at the park with the kids in tow after May 5th.

                      I agree that the park is for "kids of all ages" but I don't have a problem making something like this limited to the youngest visitors. The numbers are so limited that too many adults would take the fun all for a free cookie.

                      Besides if you want to go "make" something, you can go across the plaza and "make" a tortilla!

                              Exactly!

                              I see your point of view, I really do. It's not about the free cookie, it's about people of all ages and of all different kinds of families being able to have fun and have the same chance to participate. Now I am 100% for kids having a blast at Disneyland! But is their fun more important than mine, or an 11 year old guest or an 85 year old guest in an ECV?

                              Now if this were the only instance of exclusion taking place, it might be less troubling. However, when you tack this onto a list of things in Toon Town, Fantasyland, DCA and not to mention some proposed new attractions - you start to see a trend. A trend that says, "this <fill in the blank> is for certain people. The rest of you (uncertain) people with not be allowed to join in because you are too old, fat, tall, short, gay, dark, tan or light, and you may ruin the experience for those certain, more important, ideal people".

                              I know that's an extreme example, but I was trying to make a point. I'll climb down off the soap box now and try and unwind... even if it kills me.

                                I don't care if (as an adult) I get to make a cookie... I just want to eat a free cookie! Are only the participating kids going to eat the cookies?
                                Good morning, son
                                In twenty years from now
                                Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                                And I can tell you 'bout today
                                And how I picked you up and everything changed
                                It was pain
                                Sunny days and rain
                                I knew you'd feel the same things...

                                    Oh boy! This is sooo much better than the unvieling of a new eticket attraction!

                                      This is ageist. Expect Disney Legal to shut this down by summer's end.
                                      My fondest memory of Walt Disney was the day Disneyland opened....I was standing next to him - I was 12 years old - he was looking at the gate where people were coming through, he had his hands behind his back, he had a grin from ear to ear, but you could see the lump in his throat and the tear coming down his cheek because his dream had been realized. -- Mouseketeer Sharon Baird, "Mouseke-Memories", Walt Disney Treasures: The Mickey Mouse Club
