Construction Update on ‘Jaleo’ Coming to Disney Springs

Disney Springs

Back in June, it was announced that Chef José Andrés would be opening the next location of his popular Spanish-style restaurant, Jaleo, to Disney Springs. Today, we wanted to share some photos of the construction progress on the new restaurant.

As you can see, the construction partitions are still up surrounding the building:

The official Jaleo website gives us more information on the restaurant:

Chef José Andrés is proud to announce that Jaleo will be opening a new location at Disney Springs in 2018, bringing the spirit and flavors of Spain to the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The new Disney Springs location will be José’s biggest and most spectacular Jaleo yet, housed in a dynamic, multi-level space at the iconic resort.

Jaleo at Disney Springs will feature an extensive menu of tapas reflecting the rich regional diversity of traditional and contemporary Spanish cuisine. Highlights will include a variety of authentic paellas cooked over a wood fire, Spanish specialties such as hand-carved Jamón Ibérico de Bellota and wood-grilled Ibérico pork, as well as signature dishes such as Gambas al ajillo, shrimp sautéed with garlic and chili, and Croquetas de Pollo, classic Spanish chicken fritters.

Jaleo is one of the several new restaurants coming to Disney Springs in the next several months.

Sounds delicious! I can’t wait for it to open and give their paella a try!
