If you weren’t aware that Animal Kingdom was opening up a new restaurant to enhance it’s nighttime offerings, then here’s your chance to get familiar with  the newest dining addition to the parks: Tiffin’s. Here’s a fantastic detailed description that Disney has put out for guests:

“This new restaurant highlights our commitment to introduce new, innovative and immersive experiences only Disney can deliver,” said Beth Scott, vice president of Food & Beverage for Disney Parks & Resorts. “ We are confident that our culinary and beverage professionals have created something that re-imagines theme park dining, and encourage our guests to explore these authentic global flavors just as our Imagineers did when designing Disney’s Animal Kingdom.”

A detailed map within the restaurant’s entryway sets the stage for an immersive dining experience celebrating world travel, with bold artwork derived from sketches, journals and research from those who created the theme park.

“Tiffins is the signature restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, celebrating the culture of design and research that went into creating this unique park,” said Emily O’Brien, Walt Disney Imagineering executive show producer for Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

“All the senses are explored and turned into amazing works of art,” said O’Brien. “Two of the three ‘galleries,’ or dining rooms, focus on Asia [Trek Gallery with 74 seats] and Africa [Safari Gallery with 64 seats], and the third [Grand Gallery with 114 seats] pays homage to animal species that the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund works to protect.”

The travel-inspired artwork includes a static, three-dimensional piece that features prayer flags blowing in the wind. “As our research team traveled up the high mountains of Nepal, the winds were strong,” explained O’Brien. “The prayer flags are rarely seen hanging, they are always blowing.” This portrayal of the motion is realistically captured in the display which will hang above a corner booth in the Trek Gallery.

“Tiffins is not about a make-believe place, it’s about real people and places,” said O’Brien.

Here is a peek inside:

Global Menu

From the familiar to something new, the menu offers diners starters such a Lobster-Popcorn Thai Curry Soup with Basil and Peanuts (Asia/Africa) and marinated grilled octopus (Europe). Sustainable seasonal fish crudo (South America) and a salad of roasted baby beets and goat cheese with walnut granola and a sun-dried cherry vinaigrette (North America) round out international creations.

Entrées include Berber-Spiced Lamb Chop with Mustard Greens, Lentil Stew and Mint Chutney (Africa); Berkshire Pork Tenderloin with Huitlacoche Tamale, Hominy Succotash and Red Mole Sauce (South America); Miso-glazed Black Cod with Forbidden Rice in Steamed Bok Choywith Turmeric Sauce (Asia), and Grilled Head-on Shrimp with Tomatoes, Roasted Fennel, Olives and Sea Urchin Butter Sauce (Europe). For vegetarians, the Roasted Market Vegetable Curry with Quinoa, Zucchini and Lime Chutney brings a taste of Asia.

The kids’ menu includes roasted chicken, pan-seared cod and braised short ribs with seasonal vegetables and cous cous or multigrain rice, or roasted vegetables served over spaghetti squash.

Beverages focus on Africa, Asia and South America, including handcrafted cocktails and beers. Non-alcoholic beverages include exotic-fruit-flavored lemonades, Asian and African premium loose-leaf teas and coffee beans from Columbia, Ethiopia, Indonesia and Tanzania.

“With a focus on South American and South African wines, the beverage program is very special – we don’t have another one like it at Disney,” said Master Sommelier Brian Koziol, Food & Beverage Concept and Development director for Disney Parks & Resorts. “The program will focus on environmentality: producers that focus on sustainability, organic wines, and bio-dynamic viticulture,” he explained. “Environmentality is a core value at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and this beverage program is a great way to share that with our guests.”

Nomad Lounge

With beautiful waterfront views, the adjacent Nomad Lounge focuses on storytelling, and also on guests’ travels.

“We’re trying to tell the story of how guests can make a change,” said O’Brien. While the answers of Disney experts are displayed, guests also have the opportunity purchase a tag that supports the Disney Conservation Fund and to write their own answers to the questions to display above the bar– a way to share their own travel stories “so they can be a part of the story,” said O’Brien.

With 55 seats inside, and 46 seats in a covered outdoor area, Nomad Lounge offers a half-dozen small bites such as a vegetarian summer roll, a seared Wagyu beef skewer, honey-glazed coriander-spiced pork ribs, Indian butter-chicken wings, seasonal fish balls with shishito peppers and house-made head cheese and chicken liver pate with chutney.

Like Tiffins, the lounge offers handcrafted cocktails with African, Asian and South American flavors, imported beers and a South American and South African wine list. Non-alcoholic beverages include exotic-fruit-flavored lemonades, Asian and African premium loose-leaf teas and coffee beans from Columbia, Ethiopia, Indonesia and Tanzania.

D-Luxe Burger

D-Luxe Burger opened at Disney Springs Town Center one week ago.  The counter-service style eatery offers unique burgers, french fries, desserts, alcoholic or non-alcoholic shakes, and a multitude of other beverages.  There is seating indoors as well as outdoors on a porch-like patio.

I was one in a party of six. We arrived at noon to discover they were not opening until 12:30pm.  We decided to wait in the line because we were at Walt Disney World and isn’t that we are supposed to do?  We reviewed the menu and decided we would try four of the six burger options to get a decent perspective on the quality of the food.  You order a-la-carte so we ordered three large fries to share along with a variety of dipping sauces to dip the fries in.  We asked for cups of water and also purchased a couple of salted caramel shakes.

We cut the burgers to share and taste.  I tried the Classic Cheeseburger and the Veggie Burger.  I found the Classic Cheeseburger to be quite greasy.  They cook all the burgers to medium but we agreed they were more like medium-rare so you may want to adjust and ask them to cook to your taste.  The Veggie Burger was good and I particularly liked the green bean salad on top.  Everyone else in my party liked the Barbecue Classic Burger the best.  The least favorite choice amongst our party was the El Diablo Burger.  We all enjoyed the french fries with dipping sauces and found the fries to be quite good.  Our favorite dipping sauces were the Garlic Ranch and the Buffalo Bleu Cheese. My absolute personal favorite menu item was the Salted Caramel Shake with Black Hawaiian Sea Salt.

20160521_125144 20160521_125156 20160521_125208 20160521_125210 20160521_125104 D-Luxe Burger

The meal was quite filling and none of us felt the need to have dinner later that evening so we had dessert instead.  With all of the wonderful food options at Disney Springs we are not sure if we will choose to have another meal here.  We found the pricing for a burger and fries to be a bit high for the actual quality of the meal but if you are on the Disney Dining Plan the one Quick Service Credit is perfect!  For us, we will likely stop by for fries and a shake at some future date.  As always, food is a matter of taste and preference and if you are a burger aficionado you may really enjoy the unique offerings at D-Luxe Burger.

When Disney announced that they were naming the area by Pizza Planet, Mama Melrose Ristorante Italiano, and Muppet Vision 3D the Muppet Courtyard, we had a funny feeling that Pizza Planet was not going to be coming back in its old form. WDW News Today confirms that the building which formerly housed Pizza Planet, which has been closed for quite a lengthy refurbishment will be coming back as “Pizza Rizzo“, according to permit documents that have been filed.

The restaurant will still remain a quick service pizzeria, but will have a completely new theming and upgrades. It is rumored the theme will center around the classic Muppets Film, The Muppets Take Manhattan.

We’re not losing hope yet that Pizza Planet is gone for good though. We still don’t have any official word on what types of restaurants will be available in Toy Story Land when it opens. Fingers crossed Pizza Planet will re-open there…

Check out the adorable new candy apples that will debut on May 22, 2016 at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. The Nemo and Dory gourmet apples are inspired by the highly anticipated Disney animated film, “Finding Dory“. The talented team of candy makers provided an inside scoop on how they created these cute little treats.

You’ll find that the Nemo apple has been dipped in caramel, enrobed in white chocolate and then delicately rolled in orange and white sanding sugar, with uniquely cut and dipped marshmallows applied for his fins. Add a few dark chocolate accents for the striping and he’s ready to swim off in your direction.

What about Dory? I couldn’t forget about this delicious treat. The apple has been dipped in caramel and white chocolate and rolled in blue sanding sugar. The fins are once again crafted from marshmallows that are dipped in chocolate and rolled in yellow sanding sugar. Add on a few dark chocolate accents in all the right places, and I guarantee you’ll need a boat to take all of the apples back home with you.

I’m still reeling at how adorable these treats are!

You’ll find them at the following locations:

Disneyland Resort

With all the exciting food news we’ve seen for Disney Parks lately, here comes another food-related announcement that we’re particularly excited for!  Hollywood Studios is getting 3 new food booths, which is a great addition to a park that many have found to be lacking in many ways recently.

Beginning May 20th, and only for a limited time, the following 3 new options can be found around Echo Lake:

  • Hollywood Waffles of Fame – serving delightful sandwiches – with one on a waffle.
  • Bocodas del Lago Nachos y Empanadas – serving mouth watering nachos and empanadas.
  • Sliders to the Stars – serving delicious BBQ and brisket sliders.

We think this is a great way for Disney to keep guests happy during the construction of both Stars Wars Land and Toy Story Land, since once those parks open, there will be many more food options for sure.

Big changes are coming to a guest favorite restaurant at Disney’s Boardwalk formerly known as Flying Fish Cafe. The restaurant is being renamed Flying Fish for it’s re-opening later this summer, and will be featuring a new chef, new menu items, and a new look where diners will be welcomed to a sophisticated, interior that still pays homage to the golden era of seaside boardwalks.

Chef Tim Majoras, who was has been on the Flying Fish team since 2011, takes the helm in the kitchen, and while his new menu is still in the works, Disney gave us a sneak peek into his starter of seared yellow fin tuna served with compressed watermelon (with a hint of Tahitian lime oil and fresh limes), paper-thin avocado slices, crisp radishes, pickled daikon and a small edible viola flower on top. A drizzle of blood orange oil is all it needs.

Sustainable fish will be the star of the new menu, and Majoras’ new Fruits of the Sea appetizer features rock shrimp and clams from Florida, grouper cheek, mussels, a splash of Brandy and a rich lobster stock. The seafood is served over a generous dollop of velvety celery root puree with adds a depth of flavor to the dish. 

Stig Jacobsen, general manager and sommelier at Flying Fish, says he is happy with expanded space for wine storage and is “finding gems” for a more in-depth wine list.

The interior features an all-new kitchen and dining room (with expanded space for private dining events), sparkling architectural accents, like golden-winged room panels and an impressive chandelier that mimics a school of flying fish swimming overhead. Next door, the new AbracadaBar lounge opens, taking the spot formerly occupied by the candy and ice-cream shop.

The new “curious cocktail lounge” combines the Golden Age of Magic with the magic of Disney storytelling, so look for whimsy in the design from the Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI) team, who create stories in true Disney fashion. According to WDI, the lounge was once a secret stomping ground for famous touring magicians, local boardwalk illusionists and the loveliest magician’s assistants of the day. After every magic show, these prestidigitators would gather at the bar, where they’d conjure up new cocktails, swap magic tips and tricks, and often stay up all night attempting to “out-charm” each other with their extraordinary illusions.

According to BoardWalk lore, it was on just such an evening that every single magician in the lounge vanished into thin air, never seen again… And after sitting vacant for nearly 70 years, the secret magician’s lounge is now back in the spotlight.

AbracadaBar guests will get a special peek into the sophisticated social club, and while it’s rumored that the magicians who frequented the lounge vanished without a trace decades ago, their magic still remains strongly intact, and can be seen, heard, and even savored in the bar’s signature cocktails. From its enchanted magic show posters and mystifying mirrors to vintage props and tricks left behind years ago, AbracadaBar promises to be just as surprising and magical as its name suggests.

Menus have not yet been released for AbracadaBar, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more about the offerings.

What do you think of these new changes at Disney’s Boardwalk? We think they sound fantastic, and can’t wait to check out the old magician’s bar that’s full of mysteries! We’ll keep you posted when we find out more about opening dates and menus.

A new southern-inspired restaurant called Homecoming Florida Kitchen and Shine Bar is coming to Disney Springs this summer, although no exact opening date has been announced yet. A recent artist rendering gives a glimpse into what guests can expect from celebrity chef Art Smith’s new farm to fork establishment. The 6000 square foot restaurant will seat 200 guests and will have a rustic-chic feel. The menu will prominently support the Fresh from Florida campaign with the vast majority of products coming from local farms, ranches or fisheries.

The menu will feature southern classics like pimento cheese, deviled eggs, low country shrimp and grits, kale salad with Sweet Grass Dairy cheese and spiced pecans and a grilled Blackstrap pork chop with sawmill gravy.   Desserts include the signature Mockingbird and Shine cakes. The bar next door, Shine, will serve “hand-crafted cocktails, resort-style punches and retro coolers made with artisanal moonshine.”

Smith has been preparing meals for celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey and heads of state for the past 25 years. He has also appeared on the “Today” show, “BBQ Pitmasters” and “Top Chef Masters.” Smith is excited to return to Florida and Disney, where he was once part of the Walt Disney World College Program.

Cookie

While the books that once graced the shelves at Writer’s Stop are gone now, you can still enjoy a Carrot Cake Cookie while relaxing in a cozy armchair, sitting at one of the tables, or unwinding on the comfy couch.  The Carrot Cake Cookie was removed from the menu but due to an overwhelming response of visitors requesting this treat, Writer’s Stop now carries this popular delicacy once again.  If you do not wish to take a break and relax, you can also find the Carrot Cake Cookie for purchase at Beverly Sunset Sweet Spells on Sunset Boulevard near the Brown Derby.

20160508_155740

When you are looking for a place to take a break from the heat of the day, Writer’s Stop continues to be an excellent option.  As you walk through the door you will smell the coffee and the sweet scent of the Carrot Cake Cookie. You will find a variety of seating options for that much needed break.

20160508_154627

There is a television playing quietly in the background for your enjoyment.  You can choose from a multitude of beverages to enjoy with your Carrot Cake Cookie.  The offerings include a variety of coffees, soft drinks, wine, beer, and frozen margaritas.

Given its location at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Writer’s Stop is quieter these days.  You will see a few people curiously stopping in front of the building to look at the walls that have currently silenced the Streets of America in preparation for Star Wars Land.  While many visitors may just pass right by Writer’s Stop, they have no idea what they are missing.  But if they walk in the doors and order a carrot cake cookie with a beverage of their choice, they will possibly have found themselves in their new favorite spot to take a break.

Who loves Bongo’s Cuban Café, or Wolfgang Puck’s Grande Café at Disney Springs? Would you miss them if they were gone?

These two restaurants have been part of Downtown Disney/Disney Springs since 1997.  With the addition of so many new restaurants to the Springs, speculation has begun with whether or not these two restaurants will remain after the new changes are complete.

Other restaurants that have been part of the Downtown Disney/Disney Springs such as Fulton’s Crab House (soon to be Paddlefish) are undergoing reimagination, while no changes seem to be occurring for Bongo’s or Wolfgang Puck’s.  This has left some wondering if that means they won’t be staying.

The two popular restaurants have not seemed as busy as they once were with new additions to the area.  Maybe once things are settled they will still remain, and business will pick back up again. Renovations would certainly be pricey, but are they even necessary?  If they don’t stick around, will it leave a lot of visitors unhappy?

Other speculation with lots of new restaurants coming to the area, is with Boston favorite Wahlburgers opening in Downtown Orlando.  Is it only a matter of time before they are opening at Disney Springs?  As a Boston/New England girl myself, I say it would be a great addition! (Mark & Chef Paul hint, hint!)

 

Looking to plan a trip to Disney Springs before your favorite restaurants may disappear? Or ready to check out all the new changes and places to visit?  Contact me anytime to for more information and help with booking your next Disney Destination vacation!  As an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner for MickeyTravels, my services are 100% free.  Liz@MickeyTravels.com or on Facebook.
