Disney CA Adventure: The Cove Bar close for rebranding

The weekend of January 6-7 was a busy one at Disney California Adventure. Not only was it the first non black out weekend for most passholders, it was the last weekend for the Festival of Holidays, and the last weekend for The Cove Bar.

Our wait for a party of 3 was about an hour and a half, and we were seated at the bar.  Shellie placed an order for their famous lobster nachos WITH habanero chilies. Both Stephen and Shellie ordered a round of blood orange margaritas, while I ordered a very sweet (and pricey) watermelon lemonade.

The nachos were very good, and I would say it was worth the hour and half wait.  It was not too expensive at $16, compared to the $11 margaritas or the $5.75 lemonade.  Overall, a good visit (my first and sadly last) until they reopen their doors when they get rebranded.
