Review: Gravy Fries at Everything Pop Food Court at Disney’s Pop Century Resort

May I make a Disney food confession?

I can’t – CAN’T – enter the Everything Pop Food Court at Disney’s Pop Century Resort

…and not indulge in a serving of Gravy Fries.

If you’ve visited Everything Pop, you may not have even seen Gravy Fries on the menu – they just get a small mention on the side of the screen at the sandwich station, and it rotates out occasionally to spotlight other items.

Basically, everything you need to know is in the name: Gravy. And. Fries.

The fries are standard issue Disney fries. The beef gravy covering them is… well, I think it’s awesome – you can spot the bits of pepper to give it just a little zest, and it’s consistently thick and rich.

Review: Pop Century Food Court Breakfast

Whew! It’s been a while since I wrote about the Pop Century Food Court, which is shocking since I like it so much there!

Seriously, this food court is one of my favorite counter-service spots in Disney World, and it always has been. They have such a variety of good food here, plus they still focus on making unique and “you-can-only-find-it-here” items, which I think is critical to a great Disney restaurant. Where else can you find things like tie-dye cheesecake and Mom’s Night Out TV dinners? (I want to feel like I’m eating somewhere special and unique, you know?)

So today I’d like to focus on one of the best meals to eat the Pop food court — breakfast. While lunch and dinner are great here, breakfast is a fantastic deal!

Fresh Look at Disney World: A Disney Dining Trip Report

Mark Weaver and his family had never been to Disney World together before their March 2010 trip, and that was Mark’s first time back to the “World” in 10 years! As I’m sure you’re getting used to my “frequent visitor” perspective on these restaurants, I’m honored to share with you this dining trip report from a foodie who’s looking at WDW with fresh eyes. Thanks, Mark! (When Mark’s not dining in Disney World, you can find him contributing awesome news articles and features over at DisZine.com)

Our dining experiences at WDW were amazing. Sadly we missed 2 of our ADRs (and went home early) thanks to everyone getting sick on the last 2 days of our trip; however, we still had a great time and ate a lot of great food. Here’s an overall review of where and what we ate!:

Disney’s Pop Century Food Court:
After we checked in, we headed here to get some food that didn’t come from the cooler in the back seat of our car (YAY!). Overall, it was pretty good. I had the Parmesan Chicken which was very well done. The chicken was fully cooked — very crunchy, and the pasta with alfredo sauce was pretty good as well. I was able to get extra sauce at no extra cost which went very well with the breadstick. Speaking of the breadstick, I was actually surprised that it was not just a plain breadstick. It was seasoned with herbs and matched well with the entire dish.
