First Look!: Landscape of Flavors Menu Photos From Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

Thanks to Pam Brandon over at the Disney Parks Blog, we have even more details on the new Landscape of Flavors food court, which opens next month at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort!

The focus at this food court is going to be customization. From creating your own beef, chicken or veggie burger to building make-your-own yogurt parfaits, there is a wide variety of food that is sure to please everyone!

Tandoor Ovens

There will be four large cylindrical ovens called Tandoors, where you’ll get to watch chefs bake bread and roast chicken, shrimp, and veggies. Food + Experience!

One of the popular treats for sure will be naan, a delicious Indian bread that is slapped directly onto the oven’s walls and is left to bake until puffy and lightly browned. This is one of our favorite breads at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Sanaa.

Mongolian Grill

Again, chefs will be preparing food right in front of you at the new Mongolian Grill, which will be 3 feet in diameter. There, they will serve up everything from challah bread French toast for breakfast to grilled beef and fish for later in the day.

Lots of Choices!

The Landscape of Flavors Food Court will offer Disney standards like pizza, fries, and even chocolate chip pancakes, but they will also be offering up a nice variety of “better-for-you” foods.

Look forward to seeing buckwheat pasta and waffles, egg white frittatas, low-fat smoothies, and make-your-own yogurt parfaits.

Sweet Treats

Of course, there will still be dessert to look forward too also! I love this Mickey Mouse Fruit Tart, and can’t wait to try the real gelato on the menu.

In addition, there will also be a variety of coffee drinks, including iced French vanilla, iced mocha, cappuccino, espresso and mochachino!

The food court will be part of the Disney Dining Plan, and guests will be able to order pizza delivery to their rooms as they can in other value and moderate resorts.

    wow.. very nice. the tandoori shrimp with naan looks like a winner.. good thing its only a short walk from pop.. i assume they will leave the bridge up so you can walk ???

  2. Carolyn says:

    The Indian food looks wonderful, and so does the Mickey fruit tart, and the shrimp pasta. So basically everything! I just hope everything tastes as good as it looks. I can’t wait to see the full menus, or to try the food court for myself this fall!

  3. Raelynn says:

    Can’t wait! Everything looks so good, esp. the shrimp and the acorn squash. I hope they have some more standard stuff too for my picky-eater.

  4. AJ says:

    Canadians — I hope so!!

    Carolyn — Agreed!! I can’t wait to get in there for a sample!

    Raelynn — Yay! I’m sure they’ll have standard stuff, too — just trying to mix it up a bit for those of us who like some different items as well. :-)

  5. Anderson says:

    the tandoor veggie option looks great.

    i want to see the breakfast burger!

  6. Greg M says:

    I assume this will look different once it’s slapped on a red and white paper plate. It does look good in press photos though.

  7. Pudge the Fish says:

    Greg, I was just thinking the same thing. It would be refreshing if Disney at least attempted to move away from the disposable items and towards real plates and silverware. This would certainly be in line with their “green” directive, and Disneyland seems to have no problem serving a lot of there items on real dinnerware, even at fast food locations.

  8. Clayre says:

    Wow, what a nice choice. It’s great to see some different items on the menu. Hoping to pop over to AOA and sample some of the items when we go at the end of May.

  9. Alan says:

    Wow! This shows the food changes that have been occurring at WDW over the last few years. These upscale counter foods are such a step up. Lets hope these changes migrate to some of the other resorts. Nice work, Disney folks.

  10. Wow!!

    So happy to see such an innovative quick service spot! I will make a point to visit there when it opens. So nice to see vegetarian options readily available. So many of my family & friends are also vegetarians and I’ll be sure to let them know too about Landscape of Flavors. Thumbs up!!

  11. AJ says:

    Anderson — I know! Can’t wait for quick service tandoori chicken and naan!

    Greg — Ha ha! Good point!

    Pudge — SO true!! I was thinking about the Disneyland counter service spots the other day and there really are only a few that still use paper plates and plastic silverware.

    Clayre — Yay!! Let us know how it is!

    Alan — Agreed; I’m really liking the look of this place!

    Jasmine — Yes; they’re definitely working on upping the vegetarian items on the menu it seems!

  12. Galloping Gourmand says:

    It’s nice to see that they are stepping up their offerings at the value resorts. I hope they redo the other value resorts. The courts at the All Stars are starting to show their age. I generally stay at Pop! Century when I can. If I am in the back and can cross the bridge I’m definitely walking over to try some of that.

  13. Miranda says:

    I am so excited to see this! Fresh baked Naan? Tandoori shrimp? Gelato? This sounds amazing!

    Does anyone know when the WDW buses will start running from the parks to the new resort? DH and I are off to WDW again in mid May, and it would be so cool to be able to go try the new Art of Animation foodcourt after a day in the parks, and then transfer back home to POR (where we are staying) with a hop through DTD.

    This blog is just the best – I have been to WDW so many times and cannot believe I have never tried many of the things you have written about. I am putting that right in May :-) Thank you for doing such an awesome job!

  14. dockfam says:

    These options look great! I’m a vegetarian so it is refreshing to see more veggie-inspired items at the value resorts. Can’t wait to try it out in November!

  15. Pudge the Fish says:

    Miranda, sorry to say that Art of Animation opens May 31.

  16. JoAnn says:

    I’m so going to walk over from Pop in November for the gelato.

  17. Heather says:

    Btw, it’s not challah bread AND French toast, it’s challah bread French toast, which, if you haven’t had it, is seriously the best French toast ever. All this yummy stuff makes me really want to stay there!!

  18. AJ says:

    Thanks Heather!!

  19. Janna says:

    Even if we don’t stay at AoA on our next family trip, we will definitely head over there to check out the food court! I love the idea of the Mickey fruit tart. And the chicken…and the shrimp…and…;)

  20. Miranda says:

    Thanks for the info Pudge the Fish, just means I will have to plan another trip I guess!

  21. Beth says:

    Wow! I can honestly say that I can’t wait for our vacation at the end of November. We’ve already booked a Little Mermaid room in AoA. As I was planning our meals out, I didn’t include the Food Court at AoA because I really wasn’t sure what it was going to be like. Now, I’m changing plans to include the AoA Landcsape of Flavors.

    My DH, DS11 and I love Indian food, so the Tandoor ovens and naan sound amazing. The Mickey tart looks yummy too!

    Can’t wait to try it out!

  22. Elizabeth says:

    We are booked into a Little Mermaid room on the night they open! Yea! Can’t wait to check out the food since they should have the kinks worked out by then since the family suites all open earlier.

  23. chris says:

    I’ve been hearing that they bridge will stay up. I imagine they’ll want Pop guests over there, especially in the beginning when things might be slow.

    Looking forward to this.

  24. Rebecca says:

    So excited to find this information! We are staying at Art of Animation this September and were wondering what the food court would be like. Thanks for the great pictures and descriptions!

  25. Essie says:

    We’re staying in an AoA LM room the week after Thanksgiving and I’m really curious about the food court. It’s my first time in a value, but I’m really excited and looking forward to this new resort. I’m semi adventurous with exotic foods. I love the Yak & Yeti, but some other things, not so much (like I love oriental but not Morracan). I’m looking forward to ‘build your own’ salads, sandwiches and fruit smoothies. I’ll also try anything with seafood.

  26. Essie says:

    Oh, I forgot; I’m liking the looks of that Mickey fruit tart, also!

  27. Kelly D says:

    Greg and Pudge – I totally agree with you! One of my favorite things about my first trip to Disneyland last year was eating off ceramic plates in the quick-service restaurants.

    Thanks for this great glimpse into AoA’s menu! My family is so excited for our November stay in the Nemo section. Seeing variety like this in our home resort makes me rethink some of our plans for ADRs.
