Hey… can you keep a SECRET? Yeah, me neither 😉 . That’s why we’re sharing some Walt Disney World Secret Menu Items with you right here! These are items you won’t see listed on the standard menu available to guests at dining locations around Walt Disney World. But you gotta be in the know... and that’s what you have the DFB for!
That said, we want you to be aware that Secret Menu items change frequently, so take the items shared on this page as examples of items we’ve found in the past. (Retired items are noted where applicable.)
And also know THIS: sometimes these food items are served up with a special side… of FUN!
Location: Jungle Navigation Co., Ltd. Skipper Canteen
Oh, those wacky Jungle Cruise Skippers at the Jungle Skipper Canteen… they’re always cookin’ up something fun. And that includes a few SECRET MENU items!
Ready to surprise your Skipper? See if you can order up the Secret Menu item, Pao de Queijo.
Another appetizer on the Secret Menu is the Pork Satay Skewers.
The dish is made with grilled pork in a soy-ginger sauce alongside a slaw made of lettuce, carrots, and pickled onion.
For Secret Skipper Sips, request the Cerulean Blue Sangria — a Riesling white wine and hints of orange.
There is also a secret Passion Fruit Sangria made with passion fruit, pineapple, and Prosecco.
And the Frosty Pineapple drink is Prosecco wine infused with pineapple and apple flavors.
Be sure to ask your Skipper for these items by name to see if you can get in on all the secrets during your visit to this Adventureland spot!
Location: Spring Roll Wagon
Now, in some cases, a Secret Menu Item may not be an actual item so much as a Secret Enhancement. For instance, when visiting the Spring Roll Wagon outside of Adventureland, we learned about a new sauce that’s not on the menu. This dipping sauce for your choice of Spring Rolls is mayo-based, so it’s sort of like an aioli.
Location: Refreshment Outpost
The Frozen Brown Elephant is a favorite item which originally made its debut at the Refreshment Outpost during the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. This frozen mix of Coca-Cola with milk and creamy Amarula Liqueur was such a hit that it made it to the regular menu for a time.
Then it disappeared… until we recently discovered that it is available (when Amarula is in stock) as a Secret Menu item!
Location: Choza de Margarita
Here at the DFB, we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves. We like to call them Menu Hacks… combinations of items that WE come up with, which you WON’T find listed on the menu! They’re kind of like our super-secret Secret Menu items… like the Candy Cane Margarita we came up with at Choza de Margarita!
We asked the kind bartenders at Choza to layer Frozen Lime and Strawberry Margaritas to mimic the classic stripes of a candy cane.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Location: Nomad Lounge
Now, this particular item may not currently be available as a Secret Menu item, but it DOES give us the chance to provide you with a great tip! If you’re visiting a lounge that is connected to a table service restaurant, you may be able to snag some items from the restaurant as a Secret Menu item!
Now, in several lounges, the connected restaurant’s full menu is always available (like at the Tune-In Lounge connected to 50’s Prime Time Cafe, or the lounge at the California Grill). But at Nomad Lounge, our kind server directed us to the Lobster Mac and Cheese that was currently being served as a special at the connected Tiffins!
It’s always worth asking, my friends…
Our next secret menu comes from Restaurantosaurus in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Here, we’ve crossed paths with a unique Passholder-exclusive Secret Menu, featuring their Scotch Egg!
As with all secret menus, the availability of these items may come and go, so if you’re a Disney World Annual Passholder, be sure to ask on your next visit if the Scotch Egg is available!
Location: Restaurantosaurus Lounge
Restaurantosaurus also hosts a Lounge! It’s here we discovered the secret Raspberry Fizz cocktail made with Bacardi Raspberry, Sprite, and cranberry juice and garnished with a strawberry.
Another hidden find? The Tealasaurus! It’s Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey with blue curaçao, triple sec, lemon juice, and lemonade. Plus, it comes with two lemons in the shape of Mickey’s ears!
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Location: Tune-In Lounge
Sometimes, you can score a Secret Menu item based on a regular menu item. Case in point: the super popular PB&J Milkshake (yep, that’s peanut butter and jelly!) is an absolute staple at the Tune-In Lounge.
But did you know you can also order it spiked? No? Well, now you do! 😉
Location: Gideon’s Bakehouse
When (not IF, but WHEN) you stop by Gideon’s Bakehouse to pick up one (or more!) of one of their famous fully-loaded, nearly half-pound COOKIES, be sure you’re in the know about any Secret Slices of CAKE they may be serving, while you’re at it! Here’s how it’s done:
Follow Gideon’s Bakehouse on Instagram or Facebook, or sign up for their newsletter! These outlets are where they will share the unique promoted password for the extremely limited secret slices, when available! (They won’t be advertised otherwise, so stay in the loop to get in on the secret!)
Location: Hot Diggity Dog Food Truck (Limited-Time Example)
Though the Secret “King Dog” at the Hot Diggity Dog Food Truck was only “secret” for a limited time (for two weeks ahead of its official menu release), it serves as another great example for ways to find out about Secret Menu Items. This one was announced on the Disney Parks TikTok!
Location: Vivoli il Gelato
Ok, HERE’S a great tip… if you check the menus for dining locations on the Walt Disney World website, you may find some not-so-secret Secret Menu items listed online. These are items you won’t see posted in the location itself, like the Double Chocolate Waffle Sundae and Matcha Affogato at Vivoli il Gelato!
HERE is the final result of the onsite order for the Double Chocolate Waffle Sundae:
Location: D-Luxe Burger
And DITTO to the above online menu tip for Mobile Order! One particular spot that makes the most of offering Secret Menus items that you can only spot through Mobile Order (available through the My Disney Experience app) is D-Luxe Burger. Examples include their Strawberry Shortcake Gelato Shake and Bacon & Blue Burger we spotted off of their Mobile Order menu last year!
We’ve seen their secret menu get as high as having EIGHT offerings at one time. But these items are typically limited-time offerings, so if you spot something on their secret menu, be sure to grab it!
Location: Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’
The Gray Nissan cocktail is a mix of Blue Hooch and Strawberry Lemonade Moonshine, which when stirred together in a cup, turns a rather murky shade of gray. Since the Gray Nissan is not an official menu item, you’ll have to ask for a combination of the two drinks at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’.
An unusual color? Yep! But surprisingly tasty…
If you’re a cupcake connoisseur, you may already know that Sprinkles has a location in Disney Springs.
But did you know you can occasionally find Off-the-Menu items there?
As implied, you won’t find these offerings on the regular menu hanging in the front of the store. So be sure to reserve a peek in the bakery case before making your final decision, and look for that “off-the-menu” label, as seen beside the Vanilla Caramel Cupcake (pictured above) that was the off-the-menu item during an autumn visit.
Disney World Starbucks
Location: Starbucks in every park and in Disney Springs… and YOUR local Starbucks!
Did you know you can find a bunch of Disney pal-inspired drinks at Starbucks? And HERE’s a hint… you don’t even have to be in the parks! You can click here to learn how to order SEVEN different Starbucks drinks based on your favorite Disney characters — whether you’re in Disneyland, Disney World, or just at your local store!
If you just so happen to be in Disney World, you can order up these drinks with character at Starbucks locations including Creature Comforts in Animal Kingdom, Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom, Traveler’s Cafe in EPCOT, and The Trolley Car Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You’ll find two Starbucks locations in Disney Springs, too!
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
Location: Belle Vue Lounge
Pssst… the cool kids know about The Shadow at Belle Vue Lounge. A mixture of Chambord, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, Vanilla Vodka, and Heavy Cream, it’s as much dessert as it is a cocktail.
This drink used to be featured on the lounge’s menu a long time ago; but, alas, that time has passed. Thankfully, you can still order it… IF you know to ask for it!
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
Location: Barcelona Lounge
Though the spot has only been open since summer of 2019, Barcelona Lounge has already made a name for itself as a great spot for Secret Menu cocktails. The secret items change with some frequency (about once a month, from our experience), but one example is the Melon Margarita.
Be sure to ask what might be available during your visit to this lovely lounge! And in the meantime…
P.S. Sometimes, you may find additional Secret Menu items just for the holiday season. See MORE Coronado Springs Resort secret surprises for the holidays here to get an idea!
Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Location: The Wave…of American Flavors
However, The Wave… of American Flavors is currently serving this delicious dish as a Secret Menu item while the Top of the World is currently closed. AND if you know about this special dessert, you don’t need to be a DVC member to get it… for now!
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
Location: Grand Floridian Cafe
However, we were able to order this meal during a visit as Secret Menu item! We were also informed of another secret: French Toast may be available by special request, too!
And while you’re at the Grand Floridian Cafe, be sure to ask your server if a Seasonal Soup is available! You won’t see these selections on the menu, but we were informed about — and tried — the seasonal (and SECRET) Tomato Bisque!
Disney’s Old Key West Resort
Location: Gurgling Suitcase
The Gurgling Suitcase is a charming little lounge at Disney’s Old Key West Resort. But this tiny nook of a bar is big on surprises, as evidenced by an exclusive Secret Menu cocktail: Slappy Joe’s Bourbon Berry Lemonade!
Slappy Joe’s Bourbon Berry Lemonade is Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Blackberry Brandy, Odwalla Lemonade, and a splash of grenadine.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Location: Kona Cafe
In a similar fashion to the Seven Layer Cake at the Contemporary Resort mentioned above, you may be able to score a Secret Menu item at the Polynesian’s Kona Cafe. While ‘Ohana remains closed, the Kona Cafe is occasionally serving the spot’s famous ‘Ohana Bread Pudding!
We’re even letting you in on a few secrets that might help you grab this special item with a little more ease…
Location: Barefoot Pool Bar
Ask one of the friendly bartenders at Barefoot Pool Bar for a Spiked Kakamora! This unofficial menu item started as a DFB Hack based on the non-alcoholic Kakamora Float — one of our favorite snacks in Magic Kingdom!
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
Location: Geyser Point Bar and Grill
Blue curaçao gives the Blue Wilderness its signature hue. It’s also comprised of Zodiac black cherry vodka, pineapple juice, and lemon! BONUS SECRET: Our bartender told us this is the only spot on the property where you can find Zodiac Vodka.
Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park
Location: Let’s Go Slurpin’
The Tilly Trio sometimes makes rare appearances on the menu at Let’s Go Slurpin’ during special events at Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, but otherwise you just need to know about it. Enter…US TELLING YOU ABOUT IT!
This fun, tropical frozen drink is layered with strawberry daiquiri (red), piña colada (white), and the Typhoon Tilly (blue), which tastes like a frozen margarita.

All-Star Movies Secret Menu Items
Before we dive into this next Secret Scoop, we want to note that Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort (as well as the other All-Star Resorts — Sports and Music) is currently closed. All-Star Movies is scheduled to reopen on February 9, 2021.
Though we do not know at this time if the Secret Menu items will be available when World Premiere Food Court reopens along with the Resort, we wanted to let you in on this truly unique happening at the food court that elevated the Secret Menu experience which launched in late summer of 2017. If you asked a Cast Member at the Roxy Counter…
… they, in turn, notified a Manager. And that Manager would bring out a very mysterious briefcase.
It’s filled with ViewFinders, revealing Secret Menu Items!
Nachos Rio Grande Challenge at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe (Retired)
Though the Nachos Rio Grande Challenge at Magic Kingdom’s Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe is no longer offered, you should still check out our review of this INSANE (and meant to be shared) pile of Nachos with ALL the fixin’s, complete with drinks, VIP seating, a special ceremony to ring in the Challenge, and more!
To get the Nachos Rio Grande, you had to arrive between 3 and 6PM at Pecos Bill in Frontierland and let a cast member know you wanted to order the Secret Nachos.
The whole restaurant started buzzing with excitement! The Nachos served 6-8 people — or MORE (to the tune of $90) — and the order brought with it a whole “VIP experience” at Pecos Bill’s.
You can see the whole thing in action right here!
Seasonal and Holiday Items (Retired… for now)
Over the 2017 Holiday season, Disney released a special menu of limited time holiday goodies at Counter Service locations all over Disney World parks. The secret?
You couldn’t find these items on the regular menus (at first; it should be noted that all of these items did become available by regular ordering means). These “secrets” were revealed by utilizing the Mobile Order function (by which guests can preorder and prepay for food, eliminating time in the ordering lines) available via the My Disney Experience app.
And check out this post to see all the limited time holiday offerings that were available through the app!
Here’s another secret… you can find lots of “off the menu” recommendations (like how to score cranberry sauce at Liberty Tree Tavern) in our DFB Dining Guide!
