Think YOU can’t wait any longer for the 2017 Epcot Food & Wine Festival? Well, neither can we. OR, as it turns out, can Disney Springs! In celebration of the Festival’s approach, three Disney Springs food kiosks are offering food and drink pairings of their own at a discounted price!
Now that summer has officially (or unofficially?) begun, we all have one thing on our minds.
And one of the most essential fresh-from-the-grill dishes is a juicy BURGER. Slap a piece of cheese on it and you’re there.
But what happens when one of our favorite Disney Springs counter service spots creates their own take on a meaty burger? Well, that’s when a little something called Cheeseburger Poutine is born at The Daily Poutine!
You already know poutine A) if you’re lucky enough to be Canadian or B) because we can’t stop talking about it . Large cut French fries, squeaky cheese curds, and brown gravy. That’s the purist’s version, and it’s a thing of beauty.
But plenty of jazzed up versions show up around Disney World in spots like Le Cellier Steakhouse in Epcot’s Canada Pavilion, and — ever since around this time last year — The Daily Poutine in Disney Springs. And now — for the time being, at least — you can add Cheeseburger Poutine to the list, joining Italian, French, and Latin Poutine (and, of course, the Classic).
There are so many amazing snacks to enjoy within the parks of Walt Disney World! We can all rattle them off — school bread in Epcot, killer mac and cheese in Animal Kingdom, cupcakes everywhere — and so on, and so on.
But what happens if you want to get some crazy good Disney treats — but you don’t have a park ticket? Maybe you’ve gotten to town late, and you don’t want to burn a park day. Or maybe you’re between renewal dates for your pass. Or maybe you’re just wondering about some great treats you haven’t tried yet.
We’re here to help! Because some of our all-time, must-have, super-crave-worthy treats can be found outside of the parks. How amazing is that? And if you love the great suggestions we’re sharing here, be sure to check out the 2017 DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining, Second Edition for even more great snacking tips!
Join us as we check out this latest installment of our favorite Walt Disney World Treats You Can Enjoy — No Park Ticket Needed!
Dole Whip (Outside of Magic Kingdom!)
Who doesn’t love Dole Whip? That’s right. Nobody. So we start with the Quintessential Disney Treat — and tell you where to get it outside of Magic Kingdom (and the other parks at which it’s lately started to appear).
Of course, one of your options is Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. [Read more…]
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you and yours!
As you’re searching through the closet for your favorite green garment to don today, you may want to know about some green and Irish-themed EATS you can search for should you find yourself in Orlando’s Disney Springs or Anaheim’s Downtown Disney District on March 17th! (And heads up: a few of these treats will stick around through the rest of the month!)
We’ve already shared some of the treats you will spot around the Disney World parks earlier this week, but now let’s take a look at the Leprechaun-snacks you’ll find in Disney World’s shopping, entertainment and dining district!
Disney Springs in Disney World
Even outside of the highly recommended Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival at Raglan Road (get all the details here!), there is still plenty of Irish-themed grub to go ‘round. And the one we’re most excited about is the Irish Stout Poutine covered in corned beef, braised cabbage, beer cheese and chives at The Daily Poutine!
Are your halls decked? Are your presents wrapped? Are you bursting with anticipation as you’re getting ready to celebrate the HOLIDAYS?!?
Because it’s the Most Wonderful — and Delicious! — Time of the Year at Walt Disney World! And we’re taking a tour around the Parks, Disney Springs, and several Disney Resorts to find out What’s New for this most festive season! [Read more…]

Our Dining in Disneyland expert Heather Sievers swapped coasts for a visit East — yep, she’s makin’ the rounds in Walt Disney World this week! And she couldn’t resist the opportunity to stop by Disney Springs and check out all that’s new in that neck of the woods. And of course, that meant checking out a few of the new stops, like The Daily Poutine.
While she was there, Heather found THIS awesomeness: [Read more…]
Rise and Shine, my friends… It’s time for breakfast in Disney Springs!
What? You don’t particularly think of Disney Springs as a breakfast destination? Granted, when I think of dining in Disney Springs, my mind immediately jumps to a lot of great spots to grab some dinner and take in some of the revitalized nighttime atmosphere in the area since its transformation from Downtown Disney. In fact, some spots like Morimoto Asia are even focusing on the night owls with menus dedicated specifically to Late Night Dining.
But with all the new additions over the past year or so, Disney Springs is becoming a place where you really can spend a huge chunk of a day if you enjoy strolling around and shopping or taking in some of the outdoor entertainment. So guess who’s got you covered for some earlier-morning eats?
Not exactly what you were expecting? I mean, what could a kiosk that focuses on the classic Canadian dish of Poutine (French Fries, beef Poutine gravy, and white cheddar cheese curds) possibly have to offer for breakfast? Well, let’s not forget… The Daily Poutine also serves three variations on the traditional version. And to those, we can add one more: the new All-Day Breakfast Poutine! [Read more…]
