Hello there, fellow foodies! With summer in full swing, the culinary teams at Disney Parks are adding some new delights for you to indulge in. Trust me when I say the chefs at Walt Disney World Resort have been hard at work bringing you the freshest and most exciting flavors of summer.
There are plenty of new eats, sips, and novelties that are joining the endless can’t-miss treats. And I’m here to share them all with you. Let’s see some of the “best bites” to be had this summer at Walt Disney World Resort!
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. The new appetizers include the Green Onion & Garlic Canadian Cove Mussels featuring P.E.I Mussels with ramp pistou cream, and broiled ciabatta. The Mushroom Bisque combines morel mushrooms, potatoes, and crème fraiche into a warm bowl of deliciousness. Lastly, the Jumbo Chilled Shrimp is paired with a tasty cocktail sauce and Espelette pepper cream.
For those interested in plant-based options, there are two dishes for you to try. The Fried Cauliflower appetizer is masterfully combined with Tahini espuma, pine nut brittle, and radishes. For a heartier option, the Canadian Tourtière is a chickpea and mushroom pie with braised endive, snap peas, stone fruit ketchup, and a plant-based demi-glace. I don’t know about you, but both of these eats sound delicious to me.
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. Does it get more adorable than this? I don’t think so.
If you’re looking for a little sweetness, head on over to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, where starting tomorrow, May 24, the Centertown Marketwill 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.
