There’s been a lot going on when it comes to food and beverages at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The heat is on in central Florida, where summer comes early and stays late, but if you’re at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Pineapple Lanai is the place to go to stay cool. That’s because you’ll find Dole Whip here year-round — including two recent additions: Lime and Lemon. We turned these into a sweet swirl with a Dole Whip hack a couple weeks ago, and now… there’s MORE!
Raspberry Dole Whip has arrived at Pineapple Lanai! And it gets better: guests can swirl it with lime for what’s angling to be the most refreshing frozen treat in the World!
Welcome back to Magic Kingdom for a little What’s New! Today we’ve got a peek at some new-to-us merchandise, character cones (the saga of Hei Hei continues!), and miscellaneous info (including an Easter Bunny update)!
Magic Kingdom Character Cone Update
So just two days ago we passed along the sad news that Hei Hei, the beloved character cone at Aloha Isle, had flown the coop (we’re not done with that pun yet, obviously). [Read more…]
We’ve been hearing for what feels like forever that Be Our Guest Restaurant in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom would begin offering breakfast service — and it looks like that rumor is officially confirmed!
In speaking with Disney Cast Members today, we’ve determined that booking for reservations will open up tomorrow! Guests will be able to book dates from March 20th through June 18th, the date which will mark the end of the test period for this new offering at Be Our Guest.
UPDATE: Please note that as of June 2015, the initial test phase of breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant has been extended and Advance Dining Reservations are currently available through October 3, 2015.
So circle Friday, March 20th, on your calendars for the start date for breakfast! To be sure you get immediate updates as they become available, sign up for the Disney Food Blog newsletter!
Now let’s look a little closer at what is anticipated, and just a heads up: it looks like breakfast at Be Our Guest will be unlike anything we’ve ever seen before!
Quick Service/Prix Fixe Mashup: Breakfast at Be Our Guest
For lunch service, Be Our Guest recently became the very first counter service spot to offer Advance Dining Reservations. (Dinner service remains table service, and Advance Dining Reservations have been in place for dinner since the restaurant opened.) And now, it seems that they’ll follow suit with lunch for the breakfast service.
Breakfast at Be Our Guest will be a counter service option, but it’s anticipated that advanced ordering will be available, just like at lunch. In addition, the menu will be prix fixe with a twist. Guests will pay one set price, and the meal will include a Deluxe Pastry Basket for sharing at the table, Your Choice of Entree, and a Beverage. (Be sure to continue further in this post for screen shots of the menu!) [Read more…]
What’s new in regards to eats and treats in Disney World? What’s changed? Have any menu items bid us farewell? Read on to find out what has caught our eye lately!
And thanks to Avatarland, we bid adieu to the Camp Minnie-Mickey character greeting area. This space had two snack kiosks: one for funnel cakes and the other for hot dogs and pretzels.
You can still grab a terrific hot dog over at Restaurantosaurus… a Mac & Cheese Dog, to be precise! And those beloved Mickey Pretzels can be found in the Harambe Fruit Market (including the Jalapeno Cheese-stuffed Pretzel!).
Mr. Kamal’s (a kiosk devoted primarily to vegetarian selections) recently revamped the menu. Pick up samosas, falafel sammies, and hummus with veggies!
It’s worth scoping out Bradley Falls (directly across from Mr. Kamal’s), to see if it is open on your visit. It’s typically open during busy days, and the most recent menu showed that the Edamame and Asian Noodle Salad are options there along with a brand new Thai Coconut Soup! Check out some of these [Read more…]
Many of you will remember when in 2012 Disney Food Blog shared exclusive details about a new restaurant coming to Epcot’s Morocco pavilion in Walt Disney World! Yesterday, Disney confirmed that the restaurant will be opening in 2013!
The name has changed since we reported the story, but the details have not! Here’s a recap of what you can expect at the new waterfront restaurant — Spice Road Table — in Epcot later this year…
Spice Road Table Restaurant
Please note that these are exclusive details from the operator of Disney World’s Morocco pavilion restaurants about the restaurant!
Breaking ground this year, the Spice Road Table Restaurant will join Restaurant Marrakesh and Tangierine Cafe to offer authentic Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine in one of Epcot’s most exotic pavilions.
The new restaurant will combine 120 outdoor terrace seats with 60 indoor seats to offer guests a new option for dining in the World Showcase (and another amazing view of Epcot’s Illuminations fireworks show).
Spice Road Table Menu
The food and drink offerings were described to me as a “Food and Wine Festival all year round.” The menu will include [Read more…]
While work is going on inside the shop through Friday, April 26th, a temporary tent has been erected on the Boardwalk to serve the some of the quick service needs in the area.
These temporary site is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
It is serving some, but not all, of the Boardwalk favorites. Notably missing are many of the cake and pastry items.
Everything at the temporary location is “Grab and Go.” And there’s a refrigerator case offering drinks, fruit, salads, and other grab and go items.
There are some cookies and prewrapped baked items, but not the [Read more…]
Just got an infusion of Crystal Palace and Magic Kingdom refurb pics in the ol’ email box from some friends at WDWforGrownups.com. Hopefully will have more Disney dining refurb photos from another good friend who’s in WDW this week, so stay tuned!!
Crystal Palace Refurb: Everything shrouded and boarded up, so there’s not too much to see, but clearly there’s “big doin’s” going on!
Bridge Between CP and Liberty Square: Looks like the bridge is under renovation as well. Our source mentioned that he saw them working on a bridge over near the moat where the Electric Water Pageant floats are kept [Read more…]
