Well, I’ve been home from Walt Disney World for two weeks now, and I’m already craving some dishes and snacks I know I’m going to have on my next trip (um…Karamell Kuche, anyone?).
So, a while back, I asked over on the Disney Food Blog Facebook Page: What Disney Dish Are You Craving Today? I got some fantastic answers! Let’s take a trip down a delicious road of favorite dishes and menu items in Walt Disney World… (Note: You’ll see some sad news about the Jiko Filet with Mac and Cheese about halfway down the page. I’m just warning you.)
A Few of the Classics…
With all the changes in Disney World’s menus lately, it’s nice to know these favorites have been around for a good long time:
Fried Chicken at 50′s Prime Time Cafe
This classic, simple dish has been on the menu at 50′s Prime Time Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios for ages, and we’re glad it’s not going away!
Folks wrote about loving the wings appetizer and the dessert — that fabulous Bananas Foster Bread Pudding — at ‘Ohana in Disney’s Polynesian Resort!
Filet With Mac and Cheese at Jiko
A clear favorite with Jiko-devotees, the robust filet and rich mac and cheese accompaniment are a perfect pairing of flavors. Add that red wine sauce and we’re in heaven. You USED to be able to find it at Jiko at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort, but according to a few informants on our Facebook page, the menu item has been replaced. Now you can get the filet with an au gratin potato side dish. Sigh.
Cheese Blintzes at Chef Mickey’s
Pluto’s Cheese Blintzes on the breakfast buffet at Chef Mickey’s restaurant in Disney’s Contemporary Resort are the highlight of the morning for many diners!
Portobello Mushroom Soup at Artist Point
A quietly addicting dish, this rich soup at Artist Point in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has turned many mushroom-haters into fungi fans.
Grey Goose Slush from Epcot’s France Pavilion
One of the best-loved alcoholic drinks in all of Disney World! Sweet, tart, frozen — doesn’t get any better than that.
Macadamia Nut Pancakes and Tonga Toast from Kona Cafe
Two of the World’s best breakfasts can be found at Kona Cafe in Disney’s Polynesian Resort!
Sometimes, all you need is a little something…
Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich
A favorite from way back, this snack eats like a meal! The Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich can be found in at least one location in each Disney World theme park.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake from Starring Rolls Cafe
You don’t have to tell us twice! If there’s chocolate and peanut butter in the name, we’re there. This giant confection from Starring Rolls Cafe could easily feed two!
The Dole Whip is a classic snack that’s been delighting Disney fans on both coasts for decades. While possible to get it in several flavors, our favorite is the original pineapple! Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom is one of the most popular places to get them.
Crave-Worthy Items From Disneyland
I’ve developed plenty of cravings from my visits to Disneyland Resort, as have other Disney Food Blog readers! Here are some of the favorites:
Monte Cristo Sandwich from Blue Bayou
This incredible collision of salty, sweet, tart, warm, cold, and fried makes an ideal lunch or dinner!
Pommes Frites with Spicy Remoulade from Cafe Orleans
Quite possibly the world’s perfect food. Find it in the den of wonderfulness we like to call Cafe Orleans.
You can find ‘em all over Disneyland resort — lucky for those who are craving them!
