This is the weakest gingerbread cake we’ve had yet, but only by default. It didn’t wow us, and that puts it at the back of the line.

The cake is very well seasoned and not too sweet which is a plus. Most of the sweetness comes from the abundant icing on top which allows the diner to control how sugary their dessert will be.

There is only a small amount of apple cinnamon filling, but it works well with the gingerbread cake. We never realized that Apple Cinnamon Gingerbread Cake had so much in common and worked so well together. That flavor combination was a revelation to us, but overall the cake was okay and there are better gingerbread cakes available at the resort for the holidays. But if you’re already at the Plaza Inn and looking for a sweet ending to your meal, you can’t go wrong with this.

This Christmas cake was pretty average. If you’re looking to play it safe with your treats this season, this is a good sweet for you. The cake is simple, sticking to the chocolate flavors.

The chocolate mousse inside was sweet, but nothing out of the ordinary. Buttercream frosting covers the cake, as well as the buttercream Christmas tree. The frosting was good, but there was a lot.

The cake was very fluffy and everything stayed intact when we cut it. This cake was good, but we don’t think it’s anything special.

Vanilla, Pear and Honey Lemonade – $5.29

This sweet drink is light on lemon and more open on pear flavor. Vanilla notes help add a roundness to the pear flavor. The lime in the lemonade adds some complexity and reduces the sweetness a bit, although overall it’s still a very sweet drink. This would pair well with many of the dinners available at the Plaza Inn, especially the fried chicken.

The Christmas season at Disneyland runs from November 11 to January 8.
