New Food Items at Disney World

Check Out the New Food Items at Disney World Parks and Hotels.

I know we have been talking a lot about all of the yummy holiday food and treats you can find around the parks and resorts.  Sometimes, though, we want to know about those hearty delicious meals that can fill us up. Join me as we check out the new food items at Disney World parks and resorts!

I would like to start with one of my favorite restaurants, Coral Reef Restaurant at Epcot.  My family absolutely adores this place.  We thought the food was amazing, but the atmosphere is out of this world!  While we were there we had the pleasure of eating while the divers were cleaning the tank.  It was so fun to watch them as they put on a show for us!  If you ever want to know more about the fish in the tank be sure to ask your waiter or waitress, they are filled with information!  Anyways, back to the food!  New to Coral Reef is the whole-stuffed Maine lobster.  Sounds good right?  It gets better!  The lobster also comes with crispy baby potatoes, asparagus, béarnaise lemon, and butter.  Oh my goodness!

I love Epcot, there is so much food to find there, but Animal Kingdom is catching up with all of their new dishes available!  First stop is Harambe Market.  I love, love, love this place!  Now it’s even better with the new bowl options of chicken, roasted vegetables, and ribs, as well as, the new chicken gyro served with African coleslaw.  All three bowls are served with cilantro rice, a green salad base, and a side of green salsa and pico de gallo.  Yummm, serve me up one of those rib bowls!

Now let’s quickly run over to Restaurantosaurus where guests can relax in the restaurantosaurus lounge while drinking select beers, wines, and specialty alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages like the Tequilasaurus or the non-alcoholic Teal Rex made with pineapple and lemon juices, lemonade, and blue raspberry syrup.  There are so many good sounding drinks on the menu I simply couldn’t list them all, you really need to see them all yourself!  Guests can also pair their specialty drinks with a bowl of sweet-and-spicy mixed nuts or buffalo chicken dip served with house-made-chips.

Guests can also join some delicious meals at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort-French Quarter and Port Orleans-Riverside.  Both having amazing food possibilities, but at French Quarter guests can try this new Beignet Burger at the Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory.  This is one burger!  Made with American cheese, bacon jam, pickled onions, bbq bayou sauce, and house-made pickles all served on a beignet bun!  This sounds cool!  I just might have to try it.

I really, really want to try this new meal.  Found in Riverside at Boatwright’s Dining Hall is the all-you-can-eat Chef’s Platter.  Seriously, you guys, listen to what comes in this!  This platter comes complete with ribs, Nashville hot chicken, barbecued beef brisket, smoked sausages, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, street corn, and green beans! Woah! That is a lot of food and really calls to my southern roots!

Last up, for now at least, is the Tambu Lounge at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.  All new to the menu at this resort are the appetizers Conch Ceviche served in a coconut and the shrimp cocktail marinated in Florida Citrus juices.  In addition, guests can enjoy the crispy chicken spring rolled served with pickled vegetables, the beef carpaccio tataki with thinkly-sliced beef, or the Tambu mixed grill kebab with chicken, steak, and shrimp served grilled with peanut sauce.

Honestly, these all sound amazing!  I may just have to spend a whole day eating at these places we mentioned.  Which new food items at Disney World are you most interested in?
