We shared our full review of this new menu item LAST week only to find that it had been removed from the menu this week…or so we thought.
We’ve got huge heart eyes for ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort — we just don’t always have the funds to indulge in their unlimited tasty meat skewers, teriyaki noodles, and signature bread pudding as often as we’d like to! (Especially dem noods!)
And while we’ve always had a knack for finding crafty ways to get our favorite ‘Ohana eats on without booking a Dining Reservation for the super spendy restaurant — like this super under the radar $60 twilight feast or how you can secretly get ‘Ohana’s famous bread pudding after 4PM at Tambu Lounge — we just unearthed even more ‘Ohana secret menu items!
Greetings from Disney’s Old Key West Resort! This week we stopped by to check out the lunch options at The Gurgling Suitcase! The Gurgling Suitcase is a relaxing respite in Disney World, and they didn’t always serve food (though you could order from Olivia’s). But for a few years now they have their very own menu!
It’s already super hot in Florida so we were excited to swing by for a quick bite and cold drink! By the way, did you know the Gurgling Suitcase got its name from people trying to smuggle alcohol from Cuba into Key West in their luggage? Inspectors would shake the suitcases to see if the “gurgled” — hence the name The Gurgling Suitcase. Always so clever, Disney.
Between decorating the park, kicking off Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and introducing a bunch of treats and sweets the Magic Kingdom found a way to do even more updates! We collected all the menu updates, merchandise introductions, refurbishment projects progress, and even more holiday eats right here for you!
That’s a view that we could look at all day! Cinderella Castle, Fireworks, and Characters! Even Mickey is there — before his big day this weekend when he turns 90!
Why? Because in addition to giving you the opportunity to save time by pre-ordering and pre-paying for your food, you may also find items not posted on the regular menu. [Read more…]
Wanna know a secret? Then come with me to World Premiere Food Court at All Star Movies Resort for an AMAZING one!!
World Premiere Food Court
The Food Courts at the All Star Resorts — Sports, Music, and Movies (which is the Resort we’re visiting today) — are pretty fun places. Since the All Stars land in the category of Value Resorts, they don’t offer a Table Service restaurant. So that means the Resort Food Courts are extra big and packed with options to feed the huge numbers of guests in these sprawling Resorts.
That said, the menus tend to cater to the masses primarily with safe bets like pizza, hot dogs, and the like. While the All Stars Food Court counterparts — Pop Century’s Everything Pop and the Art of Animation Resort’s Landscape of Flavors — raised the bar in providing some more unique options, the All Star Resort Food Courts… well, let’s just say they’ve never exactly been what you might call a place of intrigue.
Until now… thanks to the arrival of a few SECRET MENU ITEMS at World Premiere Food Court! And seriously, this is pretty darn cool!
Our stealth, on-the-scene reporter snuck in to the food court in a trench coat and fedora. [Read more…]
EDITOR’S UPDATE: The Nachos Rio Grande Challenge will no longer be available after September 30, 2017. However, we’ll be on the lookout for future “Secret Menu” offerings rumored for the Magic Kingdom!
What’s that? You’ve never heard of the Nachos Rio Grande Challenge at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom?
Pecos Bill’s Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
Yeah, don’t feel bad. ‘Cause I’d never heard of it either until just a couple of weeks ago! ;-D But I was so excited when one of our readers asked about the “giant nachos” at Pecos Bill’s. And I was even more excited when I headed over to check them out! (Luckily, they just started these a couple of months ago, and they weren’t publicized anywhere…so I can sort of forgive myself that I didn’t know about them til now.)
As is the case with other “challenges” around Disney World — like the Kitchen Sink Sundae at Beaches and Cream — this one is pricey…and meant to enjoy with a crowd! And I was so excited to find an awesome family to share them with me on my visit!
There’s a lot of hoopla that accompanies ordering the Nachos Rio Grande, and I wanted you to see it firsthand! Check it out!!
OK, the video shows EVERYTHING (so go watch it! And subscribe to our channel! ;-D), but here’s the gist!
To get the Nachos Rio Grande, you need to arrive between 3 and 6PM at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland. Let a cast member know you’d like to order the secret Nachos, and the whole restaurant will start buzzing with excitement! I quickly found out that the Nachos serve 6-8 people — or MORE — and the order brings with it a whole “VIP experience” at Pecos Bill’s.
After you order (and pay the astronomical $90 price tag — yeah, you REALLY have to want some big nachos to pay that much), cast members will don their special cowboy hats and escort you back to a reserved table set with pioneer-style tin plates and checkered napkins. [Read more…]
