I have often wondered how Disney decides what dishes make it on to the menu. I am sure many of you have thought the same thing from time to time.
Have you heard about the new behind the scenes, “Flavor Lab” at Disney World? This will consist of Disney Word Chefs, managers, sommeliers, mixologists and more in this new and incredible 7000 square foot state-of-the-art research and development facility. The “Flavor Lab” will house new products, packaging etc. for food and drink service across Disney World Resorts and Parks.
It will open in October but unfortunately this is not open to the public.
“With increasing new projects, we needed space,” says Jean-Marie Clement, director, Food & Beverage Concept Development. “This new facility will provide a professional, creative and collaborative workspace for sharing and showcasing new ideas, concepts and best practices.”
Nearly three years in the making, about 18 culinary, front of house and project design team members will work there full time, but the building will be bustling. “When we open a new concept, we’ll be able to train cast members on new equipment,” says Jean-Marie. “We can test a new equipment and keep up with trends and technology.”
