Our First Look at New Eats Coming to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort

The refurbishment process is starting to wrap up over at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. We’ve been receiving previews of what enhanced dining options will be offered but today we are getting out first look at the goodies coming to the expanded Centertown Market and the pool-side bar called Banana Cabana!

The new and improved Centertown Market at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort has been re-imagined indoor street market. The new inviting area features open shutter, wooden light posts, awnings, and of course, delicious new eats! The new menu features a combination of fast casual offerings with a mix of Latin and Caribbean-inspired entrees. The highlight of the new menu you ask? None other than the new Island Bowl available for breakfast and dinner.

The Island Bowls can be customized with your choice of base, protein, and sauce. If you are ordering one for breakfast, you have your choice of egg including scrambled, poached, or tofu scramble. Bases offered include red beans and rice, home fries during breakfast hours, and greens for dinner. The protein options include rotisserie beef, bacon, chorizo, or plant-based sausage for breakfast and rotisserie beef, pork shoulder, banana leaf-wrapped fish, jerk chicken, or vegan chipolte seitan for dinner. If you are looking to sauce things up, you have are offered a choice of salsa verde or pico de gallo for breakfast and chimchurri, garlic ranch, or spicy pink sauce for dinner. With all these options, you have over 30 combinations to chose from for breakfast and dinner!

Guests will still find breakfast favorites on the menu including Eggs Benedict or the All American Breakfast Platter featuring eggs, home fries, sausage, bacon, and toast. And keeping with the Caribbean theme, island-inspired breakfast options include Coconut Waffles with fresh fruit and Banana Pancakes with granola and pineapple chunks served with sausage and maple syrup.

Fresh salads, Sicilian-style pizza, pasta dishes, and a variety of sandwiches and burgers round out the dinner menu to provide a little something for everyone in the family!

If you are looking for something to satisfy your sweet tooth, look no further than the Tropical Tart with key lime, mango, and passion fruit curd with Chantilly or the Chocolate Crème Tart with chocolate cake, coffee Chantilly, and caramel crispies.

There’s also a wonderful array of options for kids at Centertown Market at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort! They’ll enjoy some familiar favorites like Pirate Mickey Waffles and French Toast for breakfast and Chicken Breast Nuggets, Tacos, and Grilled Cheese for dinner. For the adventurous little sailors, our chefs created some unique new offerings like the Egg Popper for breakfast (a hard-boiled egg pop with green pirate juice, roasted pineapple, and bacon) and the Beef and Mushroom-blended Cheeseburger for dinner (with “cauli” fries, orange sauce, and a mini “build-your-own” Island Bowl).

The expansive beverage island will offer fountain beverages featuring Coca-Cola Freestyle, freshly-brewed coffee, and a variety of teas as well as draft beer and single-serve wine and cocktails. Or you can step inside the Grab ‘n Go Market, where you’ll find delightful specialty coffees and quick bites to-go.

Now – let’s talk about the Banana Cabana coming to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort! This pool-side bar will feature an outdoor lounge where your family can gather for some yummy food and refreshing alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The lounge is inspired by the festive culture found in the Caribbean, mixing a relaxed sitting area with a lively bar. Cabana-style drapes flank the seating groups and re-purposed steel drums will illuminate a central communal table made from a wooden boat.

It’s always “island time” at Banana Cabana, and what better way to immerse yourself in those tropical vibes than with exclusive cocktails made with premium spirits and Caribbean seafood and mainland dishes. Delightfully-flavored libations include the Pink Guava Colada featuring rum, guava puree, pineapple juice, and cream of coconut and the Kraken Punch with spiced rum, blood orange sour, and pomegranate and orange juices. Caribbean beers will also be available for islanders along with a variety of craft and traditional beers and premium white and red wines on tap.

For non-alcoholic options, adventures await you with drinks made with fruit juices and tropical flavors. One of these drinks is the Tropical Paradise, a fruity blend of pineapple coconut, cinnamon, and lime dusted with nutmeg.

Centertown Market and Banana Cabana are set to open in late Fall of 2018 and are part of the greater re-imagining of Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
