We’re excited to bring you new menu items at an open-every-once-in-a-while favorite — Tomorrowland Terrace at Disney’s Magic Kingdom!
This counter-service restaurant is open seasonally during the busiest times, so you might not have eaten here; but we’re sure you’ve passed by it on your shortcut from Main Street to Tomorrowland!
We love this outdoor restaurant for its ample, covered seating and menu that can please any crowd. The menu has always been a mixture of hard-to-find counter-service dishes (like pasta!) and classic American items that will make even the pickiest eaters happy.
Sadly, the pasta is gone, but we’re happy to report that the new items keep the balance of ordinary and out of this world!
Since we don’t get to talk about Tomorrowland Terrace often, let’s explore the location a little more…
Wedged in the area between Main Street and Tomorrowland, the Terrace spans three levels of outdoor seating along the walkway. The lowest level has a beautiful view of Cinderella Castle!
The seating isn’t luxurious, but there is plenty of it, which is why Tomorrowland Terrace is such a convenient choice for peak season dining! Families will also love that there are two (!!) nearby restrooms and water fountains.
You’ll order and pick up your food at one of the kiosks — the convenient bathrooms and water fountains we mentioned are to the left of the kiosks.
So, as you can see, the decor isn’t special, and unfortunately the seating is largely covered but outdoors, so it can get warm. But if you’re in a packed park and starving, this is a good option if you don’t want to battle the crowds at Cosmic Rays, Pecos Bill’s, or the other, smaller restaurants.
Let’s check out what’s NEW!!!! The recent additions are the Spicy Chicken Sandwich, Pulled Pork Bahn Mi Sandwich, Smoked Sausage Sandwich, Rocky Road Brownie and Coconut Tres Leches. Yum!
And now for desserts…
The new Spicy Chicken Sandwich is the most standard of the new items. The chicken breast was large and had some great seasoning. The lettuce and tomato were served on the side (another plus for picky eaters) and a large portion of fries came in a paper boat.
The menu notes that it comes on a sesame seed bun (mine did not) but the cast member said that they hadn’t seen the sesame seed buns yet. That said, I was there within the first few days of the restaurant being open this season, so the sesame seed buns might be there by now. However, I still really enjoyed the bread, and there was a lot of it so the sandwich never got soggy.
The sandwich was topped with pepper jack cheese that was melted onto the bun, and a yummy spicy mayo on the chicken! Basically, this will remind some of you of the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich at Studio Catering Co in Disney’s Hollywood Studios back in the day.
This was a great option. If anything, people who love spicy food will probably wish there was a little more heat; but it’s a good option for all but the most spice-averse. Even in the hot weather it was still very enjoyable!
The Pulled Pork Banh Mi Sandwich is a stroll down Memory Lane reminding us of Tomorrowland Terrace’s early days of Asian-inspired cuisine. It’s pretty similar to the traditional Vietnamese sandwich with pulled pork, pickled carrots, cabbage, shredded lettuce and Sriracha aioli drizzled on top.
The roll itself was thick, and there really could have been more pork to match all that bread in my opinion. The Sriracha aioli wasn’t actually too spicy, but it tasted amazing — we think it would’ve been perfect mixed in with the pork since the meat was slightly dry!
This one was served with crispy house made chips on the side in a paper boat — yum!
We loved all of the flavors together, and it’s a fun quick-service option to have! But the dry meat means we’d probably go for one of the other choices on the menu before ordering this one again.
Up next is another unusual but tasty addition: the Smoked Sausage Sandwich! A smoked polish sausage with roasted onions and grain mustard drizzled on top is served on the same roll as the Pulled Pork Banh Mi Sandwich. Also like the Bhan Mi, it’s served with a boat of house made chips. This may remind some of the now-missing sausage that used to be found at Casey’s Corner across Main Street.
The sausage itself could’ve been larger. The bread kind of stole the show since the roll was so large. But the sausage had great smokiness, so it was impressive in and of itself.
The grain mustard tasted great with the smokiness of the sausage, and the roasted flavor of the onions really popped! It doesn’t look half bad either…
Once again with this one — the flavors were well done, but the meat portion needed to be larger.
The real MVP here is the dessert! The Rocky Road Brownie was served warm with a brownie, chocolate sauce, chocolate chips, marshmallows and walnuts.
The brownie is actually larger than it looks in the cup and has…wait for it…a fudge center!!!
So basically, 0ur thoughts were…SO much yes. It is rich and warm and the perfect portion — and we haven’t seen this anywhere else.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Coconut Tres Leches. The coconut is a tasty variation of a traditional Latin treat. It’s a square cut of super-fluffy cake served chilled with whipped cream on top of sweetened milk.
Once you take it out of its dish you see there is actually a nice amount of the milk sauce on the bottom.
This is probably the freshest tasting baked dessert I’ve tried at a quick-service spot. The chilled temperature and subtle fruit flavors will be a refreshing treat after watching a parade on Main Street!
The menu had a nice selection of both safe options and more unique options — especially for a quick-service restaurant! Everything was delicious, well made, and the breads were very fresh. Of course, the desserts were hands down the best quick-service desserts we’ve tried.
Cast members predict Tomorrowland Terrace will be open for the remainder of the summer, and we hope you get a chance to try this one out!
