Vegetables Unleashed — A Cookbook by Chef José Andrés is now available!
If you’re heading to Disney World with your fabulous Disney squad, you’re going to want to share some good eats — and we’re talking ultimate foods! And you KNOW that we at DFB know all about THAT!
Here are twelve ultimate foods to share with your #DisneySquad!
Kitchen Sink — Yacht and Beach Club Resorts
Beaches & Cream‘s Kitchen Sink is the ULTIMATE ultimate food to share with your Disney squad. This massive sink-bowl is packed with scoops of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, cookies and cream, and mint chocolate chip ice cream and then topped with every ice cream topping in the restaurant (and a full can of whipped cream!). Yeah, it’s amazing.
The menu says the Kitchen Sink serves four — but if you’re with your squad of more than four, we’re pretty sure you’ll all feel satisfied after this one. [Read more…]
Whether you’ve planned a rest day at your resort, live locally and want a Disney dining experience, or just don’t want to eat another meal in one of Walt Disney World’s parks, dining on property without a park ticket offers many delicious options.

Jaleo by Chef José Andrés has made quite a splash in the Disney Springs dining scene since it opened just last month. And now the restaurant is welcoming guests to experience the Spring Gin & Tonic Festival taking place now through April 28th!

Here’s EVERYTHING you need to know about DDP at Jaleo!
First, Jaleo requires two Disney Dining Plan table credits on both the basic and the deluxe plans. [Read more…]

Bienvenido to Jaleo by Chef José Andrés!
Newly open in Disney Springs, this is the fifth Jaleo location in the U.S. (the restaurant has its origins in Washington, D.C. where it opened in 1993). So Jaleo already comes accompanied with a well-earned reputation for showcasing the authentic Spanish cuisine of Chef Andrés through a variety of shared plates along with paellas, sangria, Spanish cheeses and wines and much more.
But Chef Andrés is not only known for his cooking. Among other and numerous accolades and awards, he has been named both “Outstanding Chef” and “Humanitarian of the Year” by the James Beard Foundation and received the 2015 National Humanities Medal from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Chef Andrés was also nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for disaster relief work through World Central Kitchen, the non-profit organization he founded in 2010.
We have been looking forward to the opening of Jaleo in Disney Springs for some time now, and we are so excited to bring you along for our first visit!

Pepe is now open on the West Side of Disney Springs!
Pepe by Jose Andres
Pepe is the new counter service component of Jaleo by Chef José Andrés (which will open for its dinner debut this evening). This location in Disney Springs is the first brick-and-mortar location for Pepe, following the Pepe food truck which has been a hit for the last six years in Washington, D.C.
You’ll find Pepe on the front corner adjacent to the main entrance for Jaleo. So, if you’re hoping to catch some of the authentic Spanish cuisine by Chef Andres, but don’t have plans to dine inside Jaleo, we’re going to check out what Pepe has in store for you!
Pepe — just like Jaleo — was designed by Spanish designer Juli Capella. [Read more…]
