And while we’ll have to wait a little longer for the new restaurant to open to find out how heavily The Muppet’s Sam Eagle is involved with this delicious endeavor, there’s a bunch of stuff we DO know!
We’ve been going over the menu a million times in our minds trying to piece together what we’re gonna order on our very first visit to Regal Eagle! WAIT! What are we sayin’?!! We’re TOTALLY going to everything on the menu! And just so’s ya knows, we’ve even sampled some of the HOUSE-MADE Barbecue Sauces and CORNBREAD that the Regal Eagle will be slangin’ when its doors open. We’re happy to report that tiny taste has made us all-the-more-anxious to get in there and really do some damage!
So it is with growling tummies and great excitement that we’re sharing EVERYTHING we know so far about Epcot’s new Regal Eagle Smokehouse with you!
What is Regal Eagle Smokehouse?
Regal Eagle Smokehouse is a brand new dining experience coming soon to Epcot. The restaurant will be serving up tasty, traditional fare from across our great nation, celebrating almost every region’s unique take on classic American barbecue!
Where is Regal Eagle Smokehouse located?
Regal Eagle Smokehouse is located in Epcot’s World Showcase. Specifically, the restaurant has taken the place of the former Liberty Inn quick-service restaurant that used to be next door to The American Adventure.
What type of food will Regal Eagle Smokehouse serve?
Regal Eagle’s menu is very barbecue-centric, so get yo’ tastebuds ready for a literal cornucopia of SMOKY goodness! There will be smoked sausages, smoked dry rub pork ribs, smoked half chicken, sliced Texas beef brisket — how’s that mouth? Watering yet? And like any truly-awesome BBQ spot, if you can’t make up your mind on which meat to get, go with the American Platter where you can select three types of meat with a side of your choice and garlic bread for $18.99!
And what delicious barbecue meal would be complete without amazing SIDES, we ask you fellow patriots?! Regal Eagle’s got a bunch of our favorite accompaniments to eat with our tasty smoky meats including French Fries, Onion Rings, Cole Slaw, Burnt-end Baked Beans, Garlic Toast, Mac and Cheese, and House-made Pickles!
Will Regal Eagle Smokehouse have vegetarian options?
Yes! Even though Regal Eagle Smokehouse will be servin’ up piles AND PILES of smoked meats, they’ll also have the veggie-friendly Barbecue Jackfruit Burger as well as a Power Greens Salad! Both of these healthier options will also be good for folks who are trying to eat lighter. Hey, you do you, you guys!
What is the price point for Regal Eagle Smokehouse?
In the most recent Epcot Guide Map, Regal Eagle is listed at only one $ meaning it’s on the cheaper side of places to dine at Disney World. Regal Eagle’s entrees vary in price from $11.49 (for dishes such as the Power Greens Salad and South Caroline Smoked Sausage Sandwich) all the way up to $18.99 for the American Platter (the most expensive offering on its menu). Most of the selections fall into the $13 range –which to us, is pretty affordable by Disney park food standards!
Will Regal Eagle Smokehouse be on the Disney Dining Plan or offer any discounts?
At this time Disney hasn’t shared any details about whether or not Regal Eagle will be eligible for the Disney Dining Plan. Disney also hasn’t confirmed any discounts at this time, but we’ll keep you posted!
Will I need an advance dining reservation to eat at Regal Eagle Smokehouse?
No! Unlike Space 220 Restaurant which you’re most definitely going to need to snag an ADR for, Regal Eagle Smokehouse is a counter-service restaurant that won’t require any pre-arrangements. Just come ‘n get it, whenever you want!
Will Regal Eagle Smokehouse offer mobile order?
Disney hasn’t released any information about Regal Eagle eats being available for mobile order via the My Disney Experience app yet, but we’ll keep checking in and let you know if we hear anything!
What will the seating be like at Regal Eagle Smokehouse?
Regal Eagle will include indoor seating and outdoor seating areas. Although the artist’s renderings show some patio umbrellas for shade, we’re expecting most of the outdoor seating to be exposed to the elements.
