Walt Disney World Resort Best Bites: July 2019


Feelin’ hungry? Well I have a few new items to tell you about at Walt Disney World Resort. From eats celebrating “The Lion King” to lobster sandwiches and plant-based burgers, this edition of Best Bites will definitely have your mouth watering!

You better be prepared for these mouthwatering new items at Epcot celebrating “The Lion King”! Journey to Refreshment Outpost to take a bite out of the Nigerian Meat Pie. Or if you’re looking for something sweet, you can try the No Worries Panna Cotta featuring raspberry, papaya, and mango panna cotta with a cookie crumble base and white chocolate. There’s also the Savannah Smoothie with coconut milk, agave, and cream liqueur for the adults. These three offerings will be available through the fall.

Summer Prix Fixe Menu from Le Cellier Steakhouse at Epcot

And while we’re on the topic of Epcot, did you know that Le Cellier Steakhouse is offering its popular Summer Prix Fixe Menu again this year? Head on over to the Canada pavilion to try it out! For $55 per person plus gratuity and tax (or for two Table Service Credits on the Disney Dining Plan), you can dine on your choice of one appetizer, one entrée, and on dessert. Appetizers include the famous Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup or the Baby Iceberg Wedge Salad with marinated toy box tomatoes, edamame, Applewood-smoked bacon, fourme d’ambert blue cheese, and crispy onions with a buttermilk ranch dressing.

Entrée options include the Le Cellier Steak Sandwich (with USDA Prime New York Strip Steak on toasted ciabatta served with Parmesan-truffle fries), the Le Cellier Surf and Turf Sandwich Combo (featuring a Canadian lobster roll sandwich and a Wagyu beef slider), and a plant-based option – Steamed Asian Style Dumplings (plant-based meat dumplings with bok choy, Chinese long beans, red peppers, radish, and Asian broth). And for dessert: Maple Crème Brûlée or Duke Caboom’s Favorite Canadian Nanaimo (a chocolate coconut brownie with vanilla pastry cream, chocolate glaçage, maple meringue, and black raspberry-chocolate chip gelato). This special menu will be available through August 28.

Vegan Burger from D-Luxe Burger at Disney Springs

Moving right along to our other new menu additions, D-Luxe Burger has added a Vegan Burger to their menu. It features a plant-based patty with cabbage and mushroom ragoût, mango salsa, lettuce, tomato, and pickle on a vegan Parker House roll.

Seaside Sammich from BoardWalk Bakery at Disney’s BoardWalk

At Disney’s BoardWalk, the BoardWalk Bakery has rolled out a new Seaside Sammich. This on-the-go eat comes with lobster, shrimp, tomatoes, and bacon on a freshly-baked hoagie roll served with your choice of fries or potato chips.

Chef Tim Majoras from Flying Fish at Disney’s BoardWalk

And finally, to close out this month’s Best Bites, we are pleased to announce Walt Disney World Resort has recently won several prestigious food and beverage awards – both locally and nationally.

Orlando magazine bestowed the 2019 Critic’s Pick – Best Chef Award to Chef Tim Majoras at Flying Fish at Disney’s BoardWalk.
