Hello, DFB friends! It’s been a quiet week at Disney World, but we’ve been enjoying a few new snacks around the parks.
We’ve had a chance to eat The Rock’s French Toast and Tequila, Dole Whip Cookies from our grocery store, and some fun Jungle Cruise snacks! And we’re still eating our way around the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival! But we’ve also got some restaurant reopening news and menu updates to share, so let’s get to it!
- REMOVED: Mandarin Orange Lemonade, Mandarin Orange Vodka Lemonade, and Copa Merlot
- NEW: Blue Lagoon Lemonade, which you can order with rum and/or a souvenir glow cube. The regular lemonade costs $5.49, and with Rum added it’s $11. For the souvenir Glow Cube drinks, the regular version is $8.49, and the alcoholic version is $14.
Here’s what’s changed with the entrees:

All the previous desserts have been removed from the menu. The only dessert available now is the Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcake.
It’s made with Vanilla Cake with Chocolate–Chip Cannoli filling, topped with Cherry Sauce, Vanilla Buttercream Spaghetti, and a Chocolate Doughnut “Meatball.” It costs $5.99.
Columbia Harbour House is another restaurant set to reopen soon, on August 5th, has also had its menu updated! Interestingly enough, a lot of the items from the previous menu were added to the Tomorrowland Terrace menu. So we’ll be curious to see if the Tomorrowland Terrace menu changes soon. For now, Columbia Harbour House is still serving up most of the same food, although the Kids Allergy-Friendly parts of the menu have seen the following changes:
- Chicken Nuggets have been replaced by a Shrimp Skewer for $7.69
- Garden Salad has been replaced by Grilled Salmon for $7.69
For those with soy allergies, the shrimp comes with Dannon Danimals Smoothie, GoGoSqueeZ Applesauce, and a small Dasani water. Other menu updates include “your choice of side” with water or milk to drink. On the adult Allergy-Friendly menu, those with Peanut/Tree Nut allergies will notice that the Chicken Pot Pie and the Chicken Breast Nuggets are now gone.
