Super Snack VALUE: Naan Bread with Dipping Sauces at Art of Animation Resort

Welp, we’ve got another great Disney snack for you guys to add to your ever-growing must-eat lists in Disney World!

Remember last year when we were all “you HAVE to try the cheesy bread at Art of Animation“?

Well the Resort’s food court, Landscape of Flavors, is back with another perfect-for-your-budget-and-your-Dining-Plan treat.

After all, this place has a strong reputation for serving options outside your typical Resort Food Court fare. Most visitors would argue that it has raised the bar for Quick Service options, particularly at the Value Resorts.When All Star Sports End Zone reopened this past December, it was easy to spy some of the areas where it took its cue from some of what’s made Landscape of Flavors such a success.

The Tandoori/Mongolian station, however, remains unique to the Landscape.

And there is something special tucked on the side of the menu that can be hard to spot among the listing of entrees such as Tandoori Shell-on Shrimp, Tandoori Boneless Chicken Thigh, and Mongolian Grill Beef Stir-fry or Grill Fish.

If you look just to right of the menu, you’ll see it: Naan Bread with Dipping Sauce. It’s listed as a $4.99 snack dish, and is also  good for a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan.

Much as we want to dive in, let’s start with some logistics. The Dipping Sauces available during my visit were Coriander Sauce, Tandoori Sauce, and Mango Chutney. And here’s the best part: you don’t have to limit yourself to just one. If you’d like to try all three, you can go right ahead!

BUT — here’s a little confusing twist that I have to tell you about. The friendly Cast Member assisting me asked if I wanted the “side of Naan.” I didn’t realize, in that moment, that a “side of Naan” is different from the “snack-serving” of Naan. The side, as it turns out, includes one piece of Naan. The snack portion has TWO.

Last week I popped over to Epcot to do a first look at the brand new Starbucks spot in Epcot!

This ice cream shop turned coffee stop continues to feature futuristic decor befitting Future World, but now the menu has changed significantly!

Today, we’re taking an up-close look at two snacks — the Guava Pocket and the Peanut Butter Brownie from this new Starbucks location!


Yup! Fountain View is now your Starbucks stop at Epcot!

So if a Venti Dark Roast and Cake Pops are part of your weekly (or daily!) dining, you don’t have to abandon those treats during your vacation.

Just don’t forget to take a closer look at the inside view first… check out the completely cool and unique “Bubble Wall” behind the ordering counter (yep, that’s its name)!

But that’s not all that’s changed about the venue! Let’s take a look at a couple of new edibles added to the list… .


First, you may be interested in learning about a Disney-specific gem. If so, then allow me to introduce you to the Guava Pocket.

Not only is the Guava Pocket Disney-specific, it is also unique to Fountain View. You won’t find this treasure at the Main Street Bakery or anywhere else in Disney World at the moment.
