Walt Disney World is regularly stepping up its food game, and that includes quick service (a/k/a fast food) in its parks and resorts. In fact, some quick service dining is so good, it rivals some of the better table service restaurants in the parks and resorts!
Pepe is now open on the West Side of Disney Springs!
Pepe by Jose Andres
Pepe is the new counter service component of Jaleo by Chef José Andrés (which will open for its dinner debut this evening). This location in Disney Springs is the first brick-and-mortar location for Pepe, following the Pepe food truck which has been a hit for the last six years in Washington, D.C.
You’ll find Pepe on the front corner adjacent to the main entrance for Jaleo. So, if you’re hoping to catch some of the authentic Spanish cuisine by Chef Andres, but don’t have plans to dine inside Jaleo, we’re going to check out what Pepe has in store for you!
Pepe — just like Jaleo — was designed by Spanish designer Juli Capella. [Read more…]
Every day, the opening of Jaleo in Disney Springs gets closer! The upcoming — and highly anticipated — restaurant by Chef José Andrés is no longer hidden behind construction walls.
This year brings so many new experiences to the Disney Parks on both coasts, and you can bet we’ve been sniffing out as many details as we can find on the BRAND NEW dining that will be arriving at Disneyland and Walt Disney World!
Here we explore FIVE new restaurants we can’t wait to try in 2019!
Topolino’s Terrace — Flavors of the Riviera, Disney’s Riviera Resort
Mid-December is the grand unveiling of Disney’s Riviera Resort — and its exciting new dining! Topolino’s Terrace — Flavors of the Riviera is poised to become a must-get Advance Dining Reservation because Topolino’s will be roof-top dining with sweeping views of Walt Disney World! Expect views of fireworks shows at Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios! (Remember that Epcot is getting some new nighttime entertainment in the second half of 2019, so guests will enjoy a brand new view of a brand new show!)
In addition to views, Topolino’s will feature flavors of the Riviera with signature dining for dinner and a prix fixe character meal for breakfast! [Read more…]

Plus…where to find THESE pineapple upside-down pancakes!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
There’s a brand new, fun, and interactive store in Disney Springs as well as a ton of other changes! See everything we found this week!
Construction continues in earnest in Disney Springs’ West Side, where we’re eagerly awaiting the completion of the NBA Experience and Jaleo — with its quick service appendage Pepe. There’s been a lot of progress on both — including glorious copper-colored roofing at Jaleo!
How amazing is this roof design? The color seems to mimic Spanish roof tiles (concept art seemed to indicate a much more yellow/gold roof, so we’ll keep an eye on this), while the layers create visual interest.
Large lettering will spell J-A-L-E-O on windows spanning the entire building, and those seem to be up and completed! [Read more…]
When ThinkFoodGroup recently shared new concept art for Jaleo by Chef José Andrés coming to Disney Springs, it was also revealed that a Quick Service option would be serving Spanish street food-inspired sandwiches and salads on the main promenade of Disney Springs when it opens this winter.
And now ThinkFoodGroup has revealed that the grab-and-go location will be Pepe by José Andrés! This will be the first Pepe location outside of the Chef’s popular food truck. The Disney Springs location, however, will be located in a front corner of the Jaleo building. [Read more…]
