Jaleo Disney Springs is celebrating over 20 years of culinary excellence, which includes a long history of flavorful paella. This years Paella Fest also falls on World Paella Day (Sept. 20), which pays tribute to the Valencian cuisine masterpiece that has surpassed geographical boundaries, establishing itself as one of the world’s most renowned culinary treasures.

Jaleo’s Paella Fest will showcase a distinct paella dish each day, expertly prepared over an open flame in the restaurant’s fire kitchen. The menu features beloved classics like Paella Valenciana, the timeless combination of chicken, rabbit, and artichokes, alongside innovative creations such as the Fideuá Negra con Pescado y Mariscos, a delectable blend of delicate pasta infused with squid ink, rich sepia sofrito, tender baby squid, branzino, all elevated by a saffron aioli.
