Mousetalgia takes you to Disney California Adventure's Festival of Holidays to review the food, the festivities, and the fun entertainment. From an $11 pomegranate margarita to holiday Swedish meatballs to egg nog cheesecake, there's a taste of something for everyone - but is the price right? And performances abound, but can any entertainment compare with the Grammy-winning Mariachi Divas? We also discuss Elena, Santa, Viva Navidad, and those stilt walkers. Next, we offer a review of Disneyland Hotel's Thanksgiving Buffet, with its cheeses, salads, seafood, and all the traditional Thanksgiving fixings, courses and desserts. We'll review the food, the characters, the value and the overall experience. Plus, Mousetalgia reviews Moana, featuring our interview with Moana screenwriter Jared Bush. Plus - a unique report on visiting Walt Disney on the studio lot in the 1950s, and our advice on what to do if you need to visit urgent care on a trip to Disneyland.
