If you’ve been to Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada Pavilion at EPCOT recently, you may have noticed some new additions. This location has added several dishes to its menu over the past month.

But wait, there’s more! Two new entrées have made their way to Le Cellier – the Prime Steak Tartare “Kibbeh Nayeh” with Bulgar wheat, radish, mint, and a garlic aïoli, and the Grilled Scallops with caviar, zucchini fritter, patty pan squash, sweety drop pepper, and a creamy piquillo sauce – wow! As you can see, this updated menu has a little something for everyone to enjoy.
The Disney Resort Hotels are joining in on the summer season celebrations with some new additions to be tasted. At the food courts in Disney’s All-Star Resorts, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside, and Disney’s Pop Century Resort, you’ll be able to sink your teeth into the Korean-style IMPOSSIBLE Burger. This delicious new item features an IMPOSSIBLE patty made from plants topped with a Korean-style barbecue sauce and pickled vegetable slaw. These locations will also be featuring a sweet treat – the Seas the Plant-based Summer, a plant-based chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and sprinkles, starting on June 1.
But that isn’t the only new burger joining the foodie scene at the resorts. Over at Everything POP Shopping & Dining in Disney’s Pop Century Resort, the Cuban Burger is made up of ham, pickled pepper relish, provolone, and dijonnaise on a toasted brioche bun – yum! The End Zone Food Court at Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort is also serving up a new burger starting June 21 – the Bases Loaded Burger. This dish brings together bacon jam, an onion ring, and beer-cheese sauce on a toasted brioche bun to form a mouthwatering bite.
Also at Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort, and at both Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort and Disney’s All-Star Music Resort in the food courts, the Sweet Summertime Favorites will be joining the offerings starting on June 1. Designed to replicate a summertime classic, a hot dog and french fries, this new plate with chocolate sugar cookies, and raspberry dipping sauce.
If you’re looking for a little sweetness, head on over to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, where starting tomorrow, May 24, the Centertown Market will be offering two new sundaes themed after some of your favorite Disney friends. The Mickey Sundae is made up of vanilla-chocolate swirl soft-serve topped with mini brownies, Mickey ears, and chocolate décor. The vanilla soft-serve Minnie Sundae includes strawberry sauce, Minnie ears, a bow, and chocolate décor.
For those venturing over to Disney’s BoardWalk, you’ll be able to sink your teeth into the Strawberry Shortcake Croissant Roll at the BoardWalk Deli. This delicious new bite featuring croissant dough with strawberry filling will be available on the weekends only starting, May 29th.
Do you love shortcake? Well, the Summer Berry Shortcake will make a fan out of you with a moist vanilla sponge cake, blueberry compote, strawberries, and Chantilly. This new, sweet slice will be launching on June 1 at Gasparilla Island Grill at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
For those over 21 and looking for an adult beverage, there are a couple options for you, too! Geyser Point Bar & Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is bringing seasonal flavors to your glass – or should I say glasses – because they’ve got a new summer Margarita Flight featuring black cherry, spicy pineapple, raspberry, and cucumber melon margaritas starting on June 1!
Nestled at the top of Coronado Springs Resort, you’ll find Toledo – Tapas, Steak & Seafood, which will be home to the Smoked Passion Fruit made with Agustín Blázquez Felipe II Solera Reserva Brandy, demerara syrup, passion fruit, smoked cinnamon, and a house-made frozen orange juice cube.
Next, we’re taking a trip over to the Walt Disney World Dolphin, where the new Rosa Mexicano recently opened its doors, satisfying its hungry patrons with delicious, Mexican cuisine. This fine-dining restaurant features a menu filled with flavors and dishes from all across Mexico, as well as award-winning margaritas! The food combines the traditional with modern techniques in a captivating environment that will transport you with each bite!
It’s time to get wild with flavor because next up we’re heading to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Over at Tamu Tamu, a new sundae is on the scene and may just become your new favorite. The Pineapple Crisp Sundae deliciously combines a pineapple crisp cake with vanilla ice cream and is topped with pineapple caramel and crispy streusel topping. My mouth is watering just thinking about this one.
Recently, there have been several new eats joining the foodie adventures. Guess what’s coming back to Restaurantosaurus on June 1? The Fried Chicken Sandwich! This bite tops a warm brioche bun with crispy fried chicken breast, pickles, lettuce, tomato, and a roasted garlic aïoli. Did I mention it comes with fries?
And that’s not the only thing to return. Last month, Flame Tree Barbecue welcomed back a fan-favorite – the Ribs, Chicken, and Pulled Pork Sampler!
What’s sweeter than ice cream? Ice cream sandwiched in between cookies! The recently added Dino Dig Ice Cream Sandwich is the perfect treat to keep you satisfied, sweet, and cool, with vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two house-made sugar cookies with chocolate sprinkles, cookie crumbs, sugar bones, and an adorable white chocolate dinosaur. Just look at how cute it is!
