Disney World’s newest dining location is officially open!
The Cookie Dough and Everything Sweet food truck opened in Disney Springs’ West Side today, and we’re bringing you a first look and full review of the new dining location.
We have some especially sweet news to share with you today!
Recently, we told you that a new food truck — aptly called Cookie Dough and Everything Sweet — would arrive in Disney Springs’ West Side this month. Well friends, according to Disney Springs’ Twitter account, that day is TODAY!
A few months ago, we told you that Bongos Cuban Cafe, located in the West Side of Disney Springs, would close its doors this August. Well, friends, it looks like the dining location may close in less than a week.
According to Disney World’s website, it appears that Bongos’ last day of operation might be Sunday, August 18th.
There are so many exciting food locations coming to Disney World! Yesterday, we told you that a cookie dough food truck, Sunshine Churro carts, and Ample Hills Creamery are all coming to Disney Springs. Now we have even MORE news to share!
Beatrix will open its first restaurant in Florida in Disney Springs West Side!
Disney has just announced a BUNCH of new locations coming to Disney Springs! A Cookie Dough Food Truck AND Sunshine Churro Carts are both coming later this month! Just when we thought we’d received enough sweet new additions, we’re excited to share another.
Ample Hills Creamery is coming to Disney Springs! We repeat — Ample Hills is coming to D-Springs!
Since the announcement that Disney Springs’ West Side would be getting a City Works Eatery & Pour House, we’ve been eagerly awaiting more information about the franchise’s American-style eats and dozens of craft beers. (Click here for the original announcement!)
City Works currently operates seven locations throughout the country, and many of the chain’s signature menu items are replicated in multiple locations. So we visited one such locale to sample some of the eats that might be coming to the Disney Springs location. Note that the menu has not been announced for Disney Springs at press time, but since so many of the menus around the country feature the same items, we’re guessing some of them will come to Disney World as well!
Bongos Cuban Café is located on the West Side of Disney Springs. Owned by Gloria and Emilio Estefan, the restaurant presents authentic Cuban cuisine and live music to guests.
And even if you’ve never entered the lively restaurant, you would likely recognize the signature gigantic pineapple that has provided a West Side landmark over the years. [Read more…]
Construction continues in earnest in Disney Springs’ West Side, where we’re eagerly awaiting the completion of the NBA Experience and Jaleo — with its quick service appendage Pepe. There’s been a lot of progress on both — including glorious copper-colored roofing at Jaleo!
How amazing is this roof design? The color seems to mimic Spanish roof tiles (concept art seemed to indicate a much more yellow/gold roof, so we’ll keep an eye on this), while the layers create visual interest.
Large lettering will spell J-A-L-E-O on windows spanning the entire building, and those seem to be up and completed! [Read more…]
