If there’s a time of year to indulge in a nice warm bowl of soup, its definitely January. For those traversing the parks in Early 2018, both Disneyland and Disney World have delicious soup options which are perfect for refuelling before heading out for your next FastPass booking. In celebration of National Soup Month here’s a list of tasty offering on both coasts that you’ll want to try during your next Disney visit.
We’ll start with our personal favorite, the famous Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup that you’ll find at Le Cellier Steakhouse in Epcot. It’s made with Moosehead Beer and applewood-smoked bacon. It pairs perfectly with pretzel bread. Fans of this soup that don’t want to splash out for a meal at this Fine/Signature Dining eatery are in luck as there’s also a scaled-down version at Refreshment Port which is equally as delicious.
Other favorites at Epcot include the hot-and-sour soup at Nine Dragons Restaurant in the China Pavilion or the beef chili, pumpkin squash soup or roasted tomato soup on offer at Sunshine Seasons.
Moving over to Magic Kingdom, we love the New England clam chowder and the vegetarian chili at Columbia Harbour House in Liberty Square. Be Our Guest in New Fantasyland also offers an incredible French onion soup topped with a crouton and Gruyère cheese for both the lunch and dinner periods, also vegetarian! For lunch, they also serve up a Potato Leak Soup and for dinner a delicious a lobster bisque served with crème fraîche.
Guests can also hop the monorail over to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to try the traditional French onion soup at the Grand Floridian Cafe. Its called the Carmelized Onion Soup Gratinee and trust us when we say it as delicious as it sounds!
Other noteworthy Disney World Soup spots include The Turf Club Bar and Grill at Saratoga Springs which offers a creamy forest mushroom soups with herb oil and shiitake mushrooms. The Hollywood Brown Derby in Hollywood Studios offers a pretty impressive Florida Tomato Soup served with a Cotswold cheddar fritter.
For those visiting Animal Kingdom, be sure to stop by Tiffins to try their butternut squash soup with coconut-curry poached Key West Pink shrimp or head out to Animal Kingdom Lodge where Boma offers 13 different authentic African soups including the Ghanian Oxtail Stew and the spicy Nigerian peanut-soup.
Heading over to the other coast, we’ll start with a delicious chicken gumbo at Cafe Orleans in New Orleans Square. Another of our favorites is the classic cheddar broccoli soup or clam chowder served in sourdough bread bowls.
Sourdough bread bowls are pretty popular at Disneyland and you can also find them at Pacific Wharf Cafe in California Adventure which serves up clam chowder, broccoli and cheese and loaded baked potato soups. Carnation Cafe is also offering a baked potato soup with bacon, cheddar, Monterey Jack, sour cream and chives. And finally, those dining at Carthay Circle Restaurant will want to treat yourself to the roasted parsnip soup accented with winter pears, dried cranberries and rosemary ham.
We promise that none of these delicious dishes will disappoint so be sure to add one to your must-try list during your next Disney visit.
