The spring break crowds are upon Disney World. And, as we always say, the good thing about more people is MORE FOOD!
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…]
1-23-18 UPDATE: We were told at Friar’s Nook that they’ll also have Fried Oreos with four different sauces! Can’t Wait!
Editor’s Note: The menu screenshot below appeared on the Disney World website briefly on October 6th, but the current menu has changed back to the Macaroni and Cheese dishes. We’ve been checking weekly at Friar’s Nook for the updates! Current projected date for the menu change is February.
It seems as though BIG menu changes are on the way to the little Friar’s Nook in Magic Kingdom!
Previously home to over-the-top Macaroni and Cheese dishes, the Friar may be trading Loaded Mac for Loaded TOTS!
We know you’re out there, Lighthouse Sandwich fans.
Columbia Harbour House
And, as you can tell from the title of this post, we’ve got some not-so-great news for you.
For those of you who may be a little lost on this particular topic, though, allow me to explain. Magic Kingdom’s Columbia Harbour House is well known and loved for providing tasty Counter Service fare, with a few not-so-typical choices like the Chicken and Fish Platter and Shrimp Mac and Cheese.
Even these, however, never reached quite the cult status of the Harbour House’s two longtime signature sandwiches: the Anchors Aweigh Sandwich and the Lighthouse Sandwich (okay, the Lobster Roll comes close, but still…). Many guests seem to have a dedicated favorite between the two.
We can inform diehard fans of the Anchors Aweigh tuna sandwich that it remains safe on the menu.
Unfortunately, we can’t say the same for the Lighthouse Sandwich. The hummus, tomato and broccoli slaw sandwich – served on the same multigrain bread as the Anchors Aweigh – is no longer available at Columbia Harbour House, and Cast Members informed us that as far as they are aware it’s not coming back.

We’re talkin’ WAFFLES, y’all.
And if we’re talkin’ waffles, more often than not we’re also talkin’ about Sleepy Hollow Refreshments.
You see, long before Chicken and Waffles starting popping up pretty much everywhere in Disney World from Backlot Express to the Fantasy Fare Food Truck (even the Polynesian’s Captain Cook’s had an unexpected take on them for a time), Sleepy Hollow understood the Power of the Waffle. While specific waffle items have come and gone from the menu, this location is currently home to its original Big Three: the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich, a Breakfast Waffle (currently served with egg and cheese), and the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Chocolate-Hazlenut Spread… which we all simply refer to as the “Nutella Waffle Sandwich. Oh, yeah, and it’s got Fruit, too.”
Or maybe that’s just me?
Anyway, we’re revisiting the Nutella Waffle Sandwich today because… well, frankly because I wanted one on my last trip! And I thought I’d share it again today with you. After all, even though the Nutella Waffle never left the Sleepy Hollow menu, that doesn’t mean things here can’t change (Case in Point: the return of the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich after it was taken off the menu for a while — though good news: the price on the item has actually gone down, making it a better value). Anyway, I placed my order… [Read more…]
