Hello from Florida! It’s almost summer and we’ve been busy indulging in some very yummy summer treats!
We’re talking about new Starbucks drinks, a boozy cake, and a $20 Cruella cake (and we’d pay that again)! But we’ve also been excited about some restaurant reopenings (‘Ohana – yay!), as well as checking out the menus for restaurants all over Disney World!
So let’s get on with the menu updates!
While you’re enjoying the punny food at Skipper Canteen, be sure to check out some of the new beverages there. You can now get Seagram’s Gingerale and Vitaminwater Açai Blueberry Pomegranate as a Fountain Beverage.
There’s also a new wine on tap here: Altos Las Hormigas Malbec, Argentina for $13 per glass.
We cannot tell you how stoked we are about the reopening of ‘Ohana on July 9th! And ahead of that reopening, we’ve seen the new menus, including breakfast. Meals here will be served family-style, with breakfast starters of seasonal fruit as well as freshly-made pineapple-coconut breakfast bread! (Note: this is the same breakfast menu as pre-closure.)
Then the breakfast skillet is back and includes Hua Paka (scrambled eggs), Uala Kahiki (fried potatoes), Biscuits, Pua’a (pork breakfast sausage links and Hawaiian-style ham topped with pineapple compote), and Mickey waffles.
A Plant-based Breakfast Skillet available. This includes “Eggs,” Uala Kahiki (fried potatoes), Cinnamon-Sugar Donut, “Sausage,” and allergy-friendly Mickey waffles.
For specialty drinks, guests can choose from coffee, as well as character-inspired smoothies.
There are also some boozy options, including Mimosa-Your-Way and the Lapu Lapu.
Breakfast is $15 to $34.99 per adult, and we recommend making reservations asap!
Dinner is also the same as it was pre-closure. It includes some favorite appetizers, like the Honey-Coriander Chicken Wings and Pork Dumplings Tossed in Garlic-Ginger Sauce, as well as all those yummy meats for Entrees, and the ONLY way to end a meal at ‘Ohana — the Bread Pudding.
But something was initially missing — WHERE ARE THE NOODLES (Lo Mein Noodles tossed in Teriyaki Sauce)? Although they did not initially appear on the menu, Disney did confirm they would return – whew (and they now appear on the menu).
We also got a look at the dinner drink menu, and there is a LOT to choose from, including Signature Cocktails like the Backscratcher and the Polynesian Mai Tai…
…to the Magical Star Cocktail and Bahama Mama…
…to some fun mocktails!
There’s also a selection of beer…
You can count on us to be there at ‘Ohana’s grand reopening, so we’ll be reporting live from there on July 9th — stay tuned!
Maya Grill will reopen on June 24th and we’ve got the menu updates! Please note that only dinner will be served here upon reopening. There have been some minor changes to the menu since the restaurant’s closure last year:
- Shrimp Mojo has replaced Tempura Rock Shrimp
- Empanadas are now topped with Spicy Ranchero instead of Chipotle
- REMOVED: Queso Fundido
- NEW: Traditional Taco Salad, Fiesta Salad, and Ensalada Caesar Salad.
There are a few changes, too:
- NEW: Plant-based Chicken Enchiladas
- NEW: Bacon Cheddar Burger
- NEW: Monterey Chicken Sandwich
- Rib-Eye is now served in taco form instead of hand-cut.
Sides available include Chipotle Brussel Sprouts, Roasted Poblano Potatoes Gratin, and Yucca Fries (with a price decrease) — but you can also now get Plantain Rice, Seasoned French Fries, or Fried Plantains!
Dessert still includes the Sorbet, but Churros are also now available. Missing, though, is the Ancho Creme Brûlée.
There’s also a HUGE selection of beverages, including specialty drinks, beer, wine, cocktails, and — of course — tequila!
The Bacon of Doom has returned! This is Thick-cut Applewood-smoked Bacon dipped in The Ganachery’s Milk Chocolate and Chipotle Ganache served with your choice of a shareable smoked cocktail for $32. And yes, the addition of the cocktail is new! And when they say “smoked,” they mean it!
The cocktail choice includes Trusty Revolver: Bulleit Rye Whiskey, Tipplers Orange Liqueur, and Luxardo Cherries. Smoked and served with an Ice Sphere OR Snake Bite Margarita: Herradura Reposado Tequila, Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur, and Tipplers Orange Liqueur, with Sweet-and-Sour, and Lime Juice. Smoked and served with an Ice Sphere. Hurry, though — this is only available through September 6th.
Those are all the updates we’ve got for this week, but we’ll be back soon with more, so stay tuned!
