We’re celebrating America’s birthday all week long with Disney World’s Independence Day Foodie Guide!
The wilderness called to us and we answered with a visit to the Wilderness Lodge. We found new menu items at Roaring Fork, Geyser Point, and not 1, not 2, but 3 NEW skillets in Whispering Canyon Cafe! Check out all of the updates here!
Our adventures in the wilderness started out at the resort’s quick-service Roaring Fork, where we found some new items on the menu.
The holiday season has arrived at Walt Disney World! How do we know? The Magic Kingdom is decorated for Christmas. Flurry of Fun is starting at Hollywood Studios. Adorable snowman and gingerbread man drink accessories are popping up at Animal Kingdom.
Annnnd… Cinnamon Glazed Almonds and Cinnamon Glazed Pecans are available at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
These addictive, fan-favorite Cinnamon Glazed Nuts are available in the parks throughout the year, but they make a special appearance at Wilderness Lodge for the holidays.
Welcome back to Geyser Point Bar and Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!
Geyser Point Bar & Grill
Open for just over a year now, Geyser Point is a lounge-meets-counter-service restaurant (we’ll explain how that works shortly) set outside the beautiful Lodge, making the most of some truly terrific lakeside views.
It used to be that guests could grab a cocktail directly poolside at the casual Trout Pass Pool Bar. But the former Trout Pass has since been transformed into the Salon by the Springs, so Geyser Point is THE place to grab a drink near the Copper Creek Springs Pool.
But there’s much more than drinks in store these days. So let’s pay a one-year-old birthday visit to Geyser Point Bar and Grill! Because even in this very first year, there are already some changes to report. And while there’s still plenty to enjoy here, I can’t say I’m a fan of some of the changes.
Allow me to explain…
Geyser Point welcomes guests by presenting a rustic setting in perfect keeping with Wilderness Lodge.
Today, we’re visiting Disney’s newest restaurant in our latest DFB Video!
Geyser Point opened with a relatively new hybrid concept: half bar and lounge, half counter service restaurant. This is a style Disney has been playing with for a while, and we kind of like it? We think? We’ll let you know in a year or so!
A brand new restaurant is opening SOON at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!
In fact, it looks like Monday, February 13th, may be the date set for the opening of Geyser Point Bar & Grill, a pool bar that will blend in with the Pacific Northwest feel of the Resort. (And, yes, this location was originally slated to open in the summer, sooo… SURPRISE!! ;-D). [Read more…]
