While we love a good fine-dining experience, sometimes we just need to snack on a cheeseburger or munch on some french fries. Sure, Disney World has plenty of quick-service restaurants with typical theme park foods, but today we’re going OUTSIDE of Disney World (that’s right, we’re venturing out into the real world) to shout out some local Orlando restaurants.
If you’re staying off-property on your next Disney World vacation or you have the flexibility to venture beyond the resort’s perimeter, there’s an entire world of dining options at your fingertips! We’ve been checking out some of the newer dining options to open off-property, including the brand-new White Castle!
Today, we stopped by Portillo’s, the Chicago-style, rock ‘n’ roll-themed diner at the intersection of Palm Parkway and Daryl Carter Blvd. The restaurant is celebrating its grand opening, so we thought we would take part in the celebration and share our thoughts!
Disney World has TONS of restaurants, but sometimes, we want to venture off-property for some eats!
We’ve been closely following the construction on Portillo’s, which opened TODAY near Disney World. This rock ‘n’ roll-themed diner encountered quite a few delays in its opening, and we sure are excited to finally be onsite for our fix of Chicago-style food.
It’s been a long but exciting road for the Portillo’s near Disney World!
The Chicago-style chain announced its Orlando location in 2019, and our mouths started watering. But the opening was delayed not once, but twice, leaving us wondering WHEN we’d actually get to enjoy our Italian Vienna beef sandwiches, char-broiled burgers, and hot dogs. But now the time has come, friends!
Back in 2019, we learned that Chicago hot dog chain Portillo’s was going to open a new location near Disney World! And then we got an opening date for March of this year!
That opening date, though, got delayed — and then got delayed again, and now we have no set date on when it might open to the public. But that hasn’t stopped the chain from considering how it might expand in the area!
Here at DFB, we love trying the latest eats in Disney World.
From our EPCOT festival must-haves to special snack hacks, we’re Disney food pros, if we do say so ourselves. But two new restaurants are opening OFF-property that just may have us hoppin’ in our cars and driving…dare we say it…away from Disney World! And if you’re lookin’ for some good eats in the Walt Disney World area, these 2 new fast food spots just may have ya covered.
By this time next year Orlando might be looking a lot like the midwest if you check out the eateries around Disney World!
In addition to White Castle, Portillo’s is opening a new location near Disney World so we’ll finally be able to get our Chicago-style fix without having to bear the cold! But, we’re going to have to wait a little while longer because the opening date has been delayed…again.
Fast food fans: Portillo’s officially has a new opening date!
Portillo’s, a Chicago-style fast food chain, announced its Orlando location in 2019. It was supposed to open on March 2nd, 2021, but that date was pushed back just a few weeks ago. No new opening date was announced — until today!
In the beginning of 2021, we learned about SO many new things in Disney World!
We felt like January had a year’s worth of announcements in one month, but February looked a bit different! We had our fair share of big news, but mostly there were lots of little (and exciting) things that were announced this month. We’re taking a look at 15 new things we found out in Disney World in February!
We’re pretty excited for some Chicago-style eats at Portillo’s near Disney World.
The midwestern chain announced its Orlando location in 2019, and we’ve been getting ready to dig into Italian Vienna beef sandwiches, char-broiled burgers, and Chicago-style Vienna beef hot dogs ever since. Just last month, Portillo’s revealed it would be opening on March 2nd, 2021! But now, that date has been delayed.
