Walt Disney World Resort Releases August Food Guide
So I may be a little biased, since August is my birthday month, but the snacks Walt Disney World Resort are releasing for this month, look SO good, and are definitely a can’t miss! Ranging from the Parks to the Resorts, let’s explore all the new food, and treats to sample!
One of the best table service restaurants at Epcot is Coral Reef Restaurant, located next to The Seas pavilion. They recently made some upgrades to their menu, and if you have a craving for sea food, this is the best place to indulge! As an appetizer, try the new Seared Sea Scallops with saffron butter broth, tomato bruschetta, and crostini. New entrées include the Lobster Seafood Boil (with lobster, Jonah Crab claw, shrimp, mussels, Andouille sausage, corn, potatoes, ouzo-garlic butter, and spiced cioppino broth) and Grilled Swordfish (with warm white beans, roasted Cipollini onions, arugula, and lemon-herb vinaigrette).
You’ll also find a new enhancement featuring one pound of steamed Maryland-style Snow Crab legs served with lemon and butter. And for dessert, try the seasonal cheesecake with a shortbread cookie and fruit compote.
There’s a new addition at Disney Springs and I hope you’re sitting down, because this is blowing my mind right now. There is a new food truck called “Cookie Dough and Everything Sweet”, completely edible cookie dough, and sure to give you a sugar rush for the day. The food truck will open later this month and will be parked near the other food trucks across from Candy Cauldron at Disney Springs West Side.
- Springs Candy Taco – Candy Monster Cookie Dough, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry served in a waffle taco
- Minnie Mouse Taco – Peanut Butter Fluff Cookie Dough, caramel sauce, whipped cream, a cherry, and a chocolate Minnie bow served in a waffle taco
- Celebration Parfait – Celebration Cookie Dough with Celebration Mickey cake, vanilla custard, strawberries, whipped cream, and a cherry
- Mickey or Minnie Funnel Cake – funnel cake topped with powdered sugar and Mickey or Minnie-shaped cookie dough
- Cookie Dough Cup or Cone – Flavors include Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Fluff, Celebration, Cookies and Cream, Candy Monster, and Cold Brew
Sunshine Churro is a fan favorite over at Disneyland Resort, but now we can anticipate our own carts at the Marketplace and West Side. These carts serve a variety of classic and gourmet churros with flavors like watermelon, salted caramel, strawberry cheesecake, fruity cereal, and cookies and cream. You can even try churros dipped in milk chocolate or chocolate-hazelnut spread.
Ample Hills Creamery will be opening a brand new location at Disney Springs West Side! The shop will offer their popular handcrafted ice cream and mix-ins (like brownie bites, oatmeal lace cookies and butter pecan brittle) similar to the offerings available at the Ample Hills Creamery located at Disney’s BoardWalk.
Enough snacks, where is the food?! You’ll find a new Pepperoni Pizza Burger at D-Luxe Burger topped with artisan pepperoni, fried mozzarella and Pomodoro sauce. At Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, the the new “Temple of Bacon” dish, that comes with thick-cut Applewood-smoked bacon dipped in milk and chipotle chocolate ganache from The Ganachery.
Earl of Sandwich is easily my favorite quick service location at Disney Springs and now everyone can try one of their new cheesesteak sandwiches! Choose between the Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with tender chopped beef steak or the Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwich with grilled chicken. Both are served on freshly-baked artisan bread and topped with provolone, mushrooms, sautéed green peppers, and onions. There’s also a Veggie Cheesesteak Sandwich featuring provolone, mushrooms, sautéed green peppers, onions, and HP sauce.
At Disney’s All Star Music Resort, try the Sweet Thai Coconut Mickey Onigiri at Intermission Food Court. It features coconut sticky rice with poppy seeds stuffed with roasted mangos, mandarins, apples, and carrots wrapped in nori and is served with a sweet and sour fruit dipping sauce. Not pictured, is also a Hades Cupcake offered the entire month of August. This chocolate cupcake comes with blue sour candy buttercream and a chocolate Hades piece.
