Disney’s NEW Creamy Pesto & Shrimp Pasta Is A 10/10 😋

Things have been a little busy at Disneyland recently… .

Alien Pizza Planet

Halloween decorations have arrived, Magic Key renewals finally became available again (with a bit of a wait), and 2023 vacation packages are now open for booking! We’ve also got new food coming to the parks, including a brand new pasta dish at Alien Pizza Planet — and we’re trying it out!

Meet the Count Down Shrimp Fusilli, which is made with Fusili Pasta topped with Garlic Shrimp, a Parmesan-Pesto Cream Sauce with Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Shaved Parmesan Cheese. It certainly sounds tasty, doesn’t it? So what did we think?

New Pasta!

Let’s start with the best part (in our opinion, at least), the Fusilli Pasta mixed with the creamy Parmesan Pesto Sauce! The sauce was warm and brought a kick of spice to the dish. We honestly had no complaints! Even if you aren’t normally a fan of shrimp, we think you would enjoy this dish.


Now, the pasta itself isn’t brand new, however the addition of shrimp on top is! We have seen the Count Down Chicken Fusilli in Disneyland before when Alien Pizza Planet was still called Redd Rocket’s Pizza Port, and really, we love both the chicken and the shrimp! The chicken version is still available, but now there’s an option to have this delicious pasta with shrimp.

Of course, if you don’t like Shrimp, this dish may not be your cup of tea. But us? We reaaaaally enjoyed this new pasta! You can find this new dish for $12.99. Don’t forget, you can also get the exclusive Magic Key Mickey Ear Hat Bowl Pasta Special now, too, which is JUST for Magic Key holders! So be sure to check that out. We’ll be trying out more new eats in Disneyland, so be sure to stay tuned for more reviews.

If you’re planning a trip to Disneyland soon, be sure to read why you shouldn’t book a Disney hotel! Believe it or not, there are even closer hotels to the parks than those owned by Disney (and they’re a lot cheaper!)
