We’re heading back to Disney World’s Art of Animation Resort today for another fun stop at Landscape of Flavors!
In case you haven’t seen all the buzz, this upscale counter service spot opened to rave reviews with guests. Billed as the next generation of Disney food courts, its top draw is the emphasis on options, choice, and customization for guests.
Recently, I found myself in need of a little afternoon snack while I was visiting the resort, so I decided to stop in and see what was new to me on the menu.
And right there between the Meatball Sandwich and the Create-Your-Own Pasta, I saw those three magical words. Cheesy. Pesto. Bread.
Um. Yes, please.
And then I realized that it’s a Disney Dining Plan snack credit option! What a great deal! I mean, that thing is pretty much the size of two french bread pizzas…it could easily be a meal, right?
It takes a while to make the pesto bread, since it’s not put together ahead of time and sitting under a heat lamp. I think the wait is worth it!
When I received my order, cheese hot and bubbly from under the broiler, it looked so much better than it did in the menu picture. I could really tell that this pesto was the real deal, with the beautiful warm olive oil seeping right into the open crevices in the bread.
As for taste, it was spot on. The pesto was clean and nutty, the cheese was flavorful and hot, and the bread itself was soft on the inside and crusty on the outside. Ideal.
I didn’t realize until after the fact that I don’t think I got the little cup of marinara that’s in the picture, so be sure to ask for that if you want it! It would be great for dipping!
This is officially on the list as one of my top savory snack finds, and I will so be back! Way to go, Landscape of Flavors!
