La Hacienda de San Angel Menu

Epcot’s newest restaurant has an equally new — and incredible looking — menu!

Featuring classics like queso fundido and churros coupled with market-fresh entrees like the Parrillada Del Mar — Mixed grill of mahi mahi, shrimp, and scallops — and the Arrachera — a 6 oz flank steak — guests will find a new and different concept of Mexican dining than has been seen in Epcot before.

One thing I do notice about the menu is that prices are quite high as a general rule. With entrees starting at $21, you might be better off getting two appetizers if you’re budget dining.

The restaurant will be open for walk-ins from September 16th through October 15th. Guests can now make La Hacienda de San Angel reservations for dates after October 15th via Disneyworld.com’s dining reservations website and 407-WDW-DINE.

Food Pictures from La Hacienda de San Angel

The Orlando Sentinel has an incredible group of food and decor photos from Epcot’s new La Hacienda de San Angel, a casual dining Mexican restaurant that will be opening for walk-ins on Thursday of this week!

Here’s the Parillada La Hacienda, a sampler dish featuring chicken, flank steak and other appetizers; and the shrimp tacos. But this is just a “taste” of the 21-photo slide show over on the Orlando Sentinel’s website!

The Sentinel also has a great interview with Richard Debler of San Angel Inn, LLC, the company that owns both San Angel Inn and La Hacienda de San Angel. According to the interview, the backstory of the restaurant revolves around the Hacienda being a residential home that’s been turned into a restaurant:

As guests enter they may notice that the small room to the right is the former pantry and the first room the former dining room of the home. Next they enter the grand salon. And it soon it becomes clear that the woman of the house was an artist. A kiln is obvious to one side and the handcrafted decor showcases the “owners” personal tastes and talent.

La Hacienda de San Angel Reservations Available After October 15th

A few more details have been released on La Hacienda de San Angel, opening mid-September in Walt Disney World’s Epcot.

Reservations will be available for dates after October 15th, and the dates from opening through October 15th will be a soft opening period (i.e. walk-up guests only).

The Disney Parks Blog caught up with Richard Debler, the president of San Angel Inn LLC, and Executive Chef Ernesto Zendejas, in charge of the big changes at the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot. Here are some of the new insights:

New “Flex-Space” Concept for Disney Dining
The space will be used as an air-conditioned dining room for La Cantina de San Angel next door during the day, and as a full-service restaurant after 4pm.

The Cuisine and Menu
Two taco specialists are being brought in from one of the best taquerias in Mexico to work with the La Hacienda team. Corn tortillas will be made fresh on the premises daily for La Hacienda and La Cantina (the counter-service restaurant next door). Tomato, chipotle and serrano, tomatillo, and mango salsas will be made fresh as well, and there will be unique flavors from different regions of Mexico represented, including cilantro and habenero flavors Southern Mexico.

The Most Popular Disney World Restaurants (And Alternatives When They’re Full)

Chef Donald

You guys remember when we covered the Top Ten Disney Dining Tips, right? Overwhelmingly, the tip that was mentioned the most by Disney Food Blog readers was making Advanced Dining Reservations for high priority meals at Disney parks and resorts.

While this might be obvious to many, not everyone knows which Disney restaurants fill up the fastest when it comes to reservations. Having a little frame of reference on this might be extremely helpful as you’re planning your Disney dining and trying to determine what meals are high priority for you. So, I’ve prepared a little primer on which Disney restaurants are the toughest to book, along with great alternatives if you don’t happen to get your favorites!:

1. Le Cellier

Le Cellier Steakhouse has been, for years, one of the toughest tickets in Disney World for both lunch and dinner. Seriously, I have heard Le Cellier cast members mention more than once that they’re continuously booked up for lunch and dinner 6 months in advance, with walk-up reservations rarely an option. In my opinion, this is due to three things: [Read more…]
