Major Foodie News!
Food news is the best news! Disney has announced that some fan-favorites are finally returning! Plus, some new offerings from a few of our favorites! For more details about any of these, including my professional recommendations, contact me.
Guests can now dine “underneath the lovely London sky” in the newly reimagined Cítricos at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Taking subtle cues from Mary Poppins Returns, the dining room brings you into a garden setting where you can “trip a little light fantastic”.
Chef Andres Mendoza crafted a new menu with starters like Sweet Corn Bisque and Strawberry Salad. Entrées include Butter-poached Florida Cobia or Guava Barbequed Short Ribs. Pastry Chef Kristine Farmer created such decadent desserts as Warm Apple Rose and the Chocolate Torte. The wine and cocktail program, designed by Sommelier Israel Perez, is exceptional. For those who enjoy an elevated food and wine experience, the new and exclusive Sommelier Room at Cítricos will allow Israel and his team to source boutique wines that pair with special creations from Chef Andres. Cítricos will open on July 15, with bookings available on July 1.
Yee-haw! Trail’s End Restaurant at The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort will reopen July 17th!
Guests can start their morning with an oven-fresh pastry basket and berry granola yogurt parfait for the table, followed by a family-style skillet with smoked brisket and eggs, bacon, sausage, and cheesy potato casserole and - of course - Mickey Waffles! Adults can sip on Moonshine Morning Cocktails – a Pioneer Mimosa with passion, orange, and guava juices and a Mountain Mary with moonshine. Dinner starts with hushpuppies and skillet cornbread with a chopped garden salad for the table. The family-style Smokehouse Skillet comes with pecan-smoked brisket, rotisserie chicken, andouille sausage, fingerlings potatoes, green beans, and buttered corn on the cob. Pork spare ribs, peel n’ eat shrimp, and cornbread-crusted salmon are available as add-ons. The Covered Wagon Sundae is a wagon load of ice cream, toppings, brownies, cookies, and chocolate-covered bacon! Adults can also enjoy Moonshine Cocktails.
The fan-favorite Casey’s Corner on Main Street, U.S.A. has reopened! Catch hold of a Chili-Cheese All-Beef Hot Dog or dig into a pile of Corn Dog Nuggets with, of course, cheese sauce. The plant-based Loaded Slaw Dog is also back! The Frozen Mint Julep Lemonade is a refreshing homerun.
Plaza Ice Cream
Treat yourself at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, also on Main Street, U.S.A., will open July 7. Fat-free and no sugar added, as well as plant-based non-dairy options will be available.
Eight Spoon Cafe
One of my personal favorites, Eight Spoons Café at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park is now open and offers their heavenly Baked Macaroni & Cheese (with or without pulled pork). The exciting news – the Pulled Pork Jelly Donut Sandwich is back! YUM!
Dino Diner will reopen July 4, so grab a Dino-Rama Chili-Cheese Dog or a Corn Chip Pie just in time for Independence Day. You can even get your churro fix!
Salt & Straw
Salt & Straw, the popular scoop shop at Disneyland's Downtown Disney, is heading to Disney Springs next year! We will have more details over the next few months, so be sure to check back for the whole “scoop!”
A new offering – Disney Family Night Dinner – is now available! This family-style dining bundle includes a take-out shareable meal, sweet treats, and an original card-type game inspired by some favorite Disney friends. Disney Family Night Dinner serves 3-4 and is available from 5-10 p.m. through mobile order at Caribbean Beach and Grand Floridian.
