*NEW* California Cheesesteak โ€“ $11.50

This was our least favorite dish from Sonoma Terrace. It was close to something you would get from a fair. The meat wasnโ€™t a great quality and was somewhat chewy. The cheese melted on top was good and made the dish a little better, but the bun was dry and we found ourselves eating around it. The peppers added a little bit of a kick, but not too much. This was a โ€œmehโ€ dish. Not something weโ€™d get again.

*NEW* Italian Meatball Sandwich โ€“ $10.49

This was a good sandwich. The bread was okay, not great, but not bad. It was a tad bit dry and chewy.

The meatball was a good quality, it was moist on the inside. The portion size is excellent and could make a guest very full if they ate this by themselves. We do wish there was a little more sauce on the sandwich, though. The cheese was also good, and distributed well.

*NEW* Bavarian Pretzel with Cheese Sauce โ€“ $7.99

The pretzel was better than a normal Disney pretzel; it had a nice texture and wasnโ€™t too dry. It came out warm and was easy to pull apart. The cheese was disappointing, though, as it came in a pre-packaged plastic cup. A nice beer cheese would have made this a great option.

*NEW* Triple Chocolate Brownie โ€“ $7.50

This was one of our favorite desserts in the entire festival. It was served cold, with bits of strawberry surrounding the dense chocolate cake.

The cake was moist and had a beautiful rich taste that was not too sweet. The strawberries added some contrast with a fruity freshness to accompany the cake. The frosting was thick and sweet, but paired perfectly with the cake.ย The chocolate-covered strawberry on the top was also a nice touch.

*NEW* Catalina Island โ€“ Vodka and Passion Fruit with flavors of Raspberry Lemonade and Lime (Alcoholic)ย โ€“ $13.00

This vodka drink seemed to be missingโ€ฆ vodka? It tasted very sugary and sweet, with not much alcohol. A little syrupy with a blue Kool-Aid taste. Not one of our favorites.

*NEW* Pineapple Passion โ€“ White Rum with flavors of Pineapple and Passion Fruit (Alcoholic) โ€“ $14.00

This was a delicious, refreshing fruity drink. With pineapple and passion fruit, it was a tad bit sweet, but not in a bad way. It was light and had a nice rum aftertaste.
