The quick-service location had walls up starting January 11th, and it’s expected to reopen in February. And in Magic Kingdom today, we spotted something promising!
There are no major changes to the menu to report upon reopening… and that’s not a bad thing at all, when you consider that The Lunching Pad serves — among other items — the Pepper Jack Warm Stuffed Pretzel AND the Cream Cheese Warm Stuffed Pretzel! Join us as we check out the newly reopened Lunching Pad, and grab a pretzel (and more) while we’re at it! [Read more…]
If you’ve been following along, you know that the reopening of Walt Disney World Resort is taking place in phases. And even though all four Walt Disney World theme parks started to welcome guests again in July, that does not mean that every attraction, experience, eatery, and store in the parks reopened immediately.
In fact, we have a whole list of restaurants that we put together so you can know which ones are currently open in the parks and which ones remain closed. But it seems as though we might be able to move one favorite counter service spot in Magic Kingdom from “Closed” to “Open” on that list soon… [Read more…]
According to Magic Kingdom Cast Members, Aunt Polly’s on Tom Sawyer Island in Magic Kingdom will be reopening to serve food once again for a limited time to Magic Kingdom guests!
Our sources say that the beloved spot will be open daily from December 22nd through January 5th. Tom Sawyer Island will be receiving guests (coming by raft, of course) from 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM most days (with the exception of December 22nd, when it may not open until 11:00 AM). However, please note that Aunt Polly’s will have different operating hours, which we are waiting to confirm at this time.
We also look forward to confirming menu information for you tomorrow!
For those unfamiliar with Aunt Polly’s, this counter service location is beloved by many who made memories (and consumed some famous fried chicken) when it was open on a regular basis back in the day.
If you’ve been following along with the Hot Diggity Dog of the Month at Casey’s Corner in Magic Kingdom, then you’ve seen everything on these monthly-rotating featured dogs from Loaded Mashed Potatoes to Poutine to Cheetos and more!
If one of these specialty Dogs piqued your interest, but didn’t line up with your vacation dates this year, you MAY have a second shot at getting one of the previously featured Dogs… thanks to the 12 Days of Christmas Dogs coming to Casey’s Corner! [Read more…]
For those of you scratching your head wondering “um…what’s the big deal…it’s a sandwich…”, let us…ahem…shine a light on things!
Our favorite Friar is serving up a new menu of LOADED TATER TOTS — with a Fried Twinkie for dessert! — at Friar’s Nook!
And “nook” is definitely the operative word in the name of this tiny Fantasyland Counter Service spot, which you’ll find in the shadow of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It’s basically a row of counters with some general tables just outside where guests can also eat their ice cream from Storybook Treats.
So, it was surprising when this little spot started serving up some BIG dishes, like the newly retired Barbecue Chicken Mac and Cheese. Suddenly, this humble little kiosk was totally on the radar.
And now it’s right back up there with a brand new menu of LOADED TOTS!!!
It’s your choice of Loaded Greek Tots, Fiesta Tots, and Buffalo Chicken Tots. And to help you narrow it down, we’re trying them all for you!
Starting today, when the My Disney Experience app is updated, guests will be able to use their Disney Dining Plan credits to pay for Counter Service meals and snacks that they’ve ordered using Mobile Order! [Read more…]
