Looking for some delicious BBQ in Disney World?
Then you’ll definitely want to check out The Polite Pig in Disney Springs. While their regular menu has tons of fantastic options, we just spotted its new Chef’s Special and it looks super yummy!
Epcot’s upcoming Regal Eagle Smokehouse is almost here (hopefully), and we are SO ready for some BBQ!
Earlier today, we visited the site of the future BBQ-joint to check out the progress of construction, and now we have even more exciting details that have us itching for the newest Epcot restaurant to open its doors!
The Epcot Transformation is truly in full swing!
We are SO excited for everything coming to Epcot in the next few years! From eating in Space 220, to riding along with our favorite little chef on Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, there’s a lot to look forward to in Epcot this year. One opening that we are oh-so-close to is Regal Eagle Smokehouse, an upcoming BBQ joint that’ll be opening in the America Pavilion. Today we checked in to see the latest progress on how the upcoming restaurant is coming along.
is a modern BBQ joint in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs. Its proprietors are local celebrities of the food scene in central Florida, but my visits haven’t been universally excellent despite the Pig’s positive reception in Disney springs.
But The Polite Pig is more than just smoked meats. On my recent visit, I went for some of the Market Sides and Shareables (a/k/a appetizers). [Read more…]
Remember earlier this week when we reported there were new menu items at Disney Springs? Well we couldn’t resist trying a few of them as soon as possible! Today we stopped by The Polite Pig to sample some of their latest offerings.
On our list for today were the Burnt Ends BBQ Meatballs, the Seasonal Side, the Bee’s Knees Cocktail, and the Red Velvet Cake…of course we had to get dessert! 🙂
The Diamond Horseshoe in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland at Walt Disney World has had a bit of an identity crisis over the years.
Formerly a seasonal counter service spot, the restaurant is now a seasonal table service location. And while Diamond Horseshoe was once home only to an all-you-care-to-enjoy platter (which began as a temporary offering back in 2016), it was announced that beginning May 16, the menu would also include some a la carte options.
And that’s where Diamond Horseshoe stands today: it’s open seasonally and with limited hours (typically 1PM to 7PM), serving table service eats with both an a la carte and all-you-care-to-enjoy menu. And with the advent of the 2018 Disney Dining Plan’s alcohol-included policy, diners can now enjoy a glass of wine or beer with their meals as well.
But with the cycles of Diamond Horseshoe’s menu life seemingly always up in the air, this Magic Kingdom staple has maintained its Old West style and laid back atmosphere. And after my most recent visit, I might say that’s the best thing Diamond Horseshoe has going for it.
Diamond Horseshoe is a rootin’, tootin’ kind of spot, holding fast to its frontier styling in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland. And we love it for that.
Alert! Alert! Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant is open!
This seasonal quick service spot is located right at the entrance of Tomorrowland in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. And when we say seasonal, we mean, like, super seasonal. It’s very rare to see this spot open, but Spring Break’s notoriously massive crowds were enough to open the Restaurant for the lunch time rush — 11AM to 3:30PM during my visit!
The menu here is small and variable, and it won’t appeal to every Walt Disney World guest. But if you’re looking for something simple and fast, this might just fit the bill for you. Plus you can use Mobile Ordering here, making this an even more convenient location!
And it’s actually a pleasant place to dine during the spring (and early summer before the heat really kicks in!). There’s a reason Tomorrowland Terrace is the spot for the Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party: views! The seating here has a Hub and Castle view (albeit blocked from some seats).
So join me as I check out Tomorrowland Terrace!
Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant is about what you’d expect from a counter service restaurant in Tomorrowland: some neon, funky fonts on the signs, and lots of metal (or metallic) accents.
is an old Hollywood style counter service joint in Disney California Adventure. It’s located in Hollywood Land, which isn’t surprising when you see the sleek art deco exterior.
Welcome to Disneyland’s newest Table Service eatery, River Belle Terrace!
Of course, that’s not the whole story… not by a long shot. River Belle Terrace has quite the history in Disneyland, existing under its current name since 1971 (and the location itself operated under other names from the park’s first year). [Read more…]
