Easter snacks have come and gone, and we’re just about ready for May the 4th AND summer! But in the meantime, we’ve got all the menu updates that have happened at Disney World restaurants in April — buckle up, because there’s a lot!
Hello everyone! It’s been an interesting week at Disney World (and a stormy one at that), but that still hasn’t stopped us from eating all the things!
Some of those things included a SUPER neon drink, some amazing mac and cheese, and a vanilla orange slushy float! But as always, we kept an eye on restaurant menus, too, so you can stay updated on what’s been changing at Disney World. So let’s get started!
But we’ve also been paying attention to each restaurant at Disney World, looking for any menu changes, and this week, we noticed a LOT of price changes. Like A LOT.
You know we love Disney food, but it can’t all be delicious.
In fact, some of the restaurants have garnered more infamy than they have fame. Today, we’re taking a look at what travelers think are the downright WORST restaurants in Disney World according to Yelp. Let’s check out that bottom ten!
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort reopened to guests in October. But when the hotel reopened, some dining options remained closed upon the initial reopening.
But today, we have news of an additional dining spot at Coronado Springs Resort that will be serving guests again soon. El Mercado de Coronado, the primary Counter Service location for Coronado Springs, is now showing upcoming operating hours on the Walt Disney World website! [Read more…]
We’re having a fiesta over at Walt Disney World’s Coronado Springs Resort for another look at What’s New!
Let’s hope you’re hungry (and thirsty) because we have LOTS of food and beverage updates to share with you!
Walt Disney World is home to several moderate category resorts, but their food is far from moderate! You’ll find a wide variety of eats at each moderate resort from grab and go and pool bars to quick service and table service restaurants.
We wanted to bring you up to date on what’s going on menu-wise — and what a few of our favorites are! — at Port Orleans French Quarter and Riverside in case you’re traveling there soon!
What’s Happening at Port Orleans French Quarter
The resort pays homage to all things New Orleans and Mardi Gras — which means beignets are plentiful here!

Welcome back to El Mercado de Coronado!
Even if El Mercado de Coronado is a new name to you, you may still be familiar with the space if you’ve ever paid a visit to Coronado Springs Resort. You see, this Resort Counter Service location used to go by the name of Pepper Market.
While the general setup of the space has remained the same, there are some other aspects that have changed even beyond the name.
So join us on a tour of El Mercado de Coronado!
The unique structure of the space has remained the same, of course, with the large dining room still given a bit of the Resort’s Spanish-Colonial Mexican architecture with arches and large beams, and a high ceiling allowing plenty of light from the windows to flow through. [Read more…]
Further changes include the recent transformation of Rix Lounge into Rix Sports Bar & Grill. And now, there is another change to report. If you search on Disney World’s website or My Disney Experience app for Pepper Market — the Counter Service option for Coronado Springs Resort — your search results will come up empty.
That’s because the Pepper Market appears to have undergone a name change to El Mercado de Coronado! [Read more…]
