Updates and expansions at the theme parks have added an array of new menu items at a variety of food stands, restaurants and food trucks. Here are some highlights:
Walt Disney World
Spice Road Table: New table-service restaurant in Epcot’s World Showcase, featuring small plates (lamb sliders, fried calamari, mussels tagine) from the Mediterranean.
Downtown Disney food trucks: Four food trucks representing each of the four Disney parks are stationed at temporary spots at Downtown Disney, where Food Truck Park is under construction and expected to open this summer. Samples from the menus: Variations on meatballs from Hollywood Studios, tandoori chicken and Asian-influenced dishes from Animal Kingdom, Croque Monsieur sandwiches and Disneyland corn dogs from Magic Kingdoms around the world, lobster rolls and pierogies from the best of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
Leaky Cauldron: Opening this summer in Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley, it will feature traditional British dishes including bangers and mash, fisherman’s pie, fish and chips, and two new beers created exclusively for the attraction — Wizard’s Brew and Dragon Scale.
Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour: Also on Diagon Alley, the shop will offer unique flavors of ice cream, including Butterbeer, Sticky Toffee Pudding, and Orange Marmalade, as well as cakes and pastries.
Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food: New on CityWalk, Antojitos serves enchiladas, tamales, tacos and chiles rellenos “straight from the street carts and cantinas of Mexico” downstairs. Upstairs, the menu has a more gourmet bent: duck tacos, braised short ribs with manchego corn pudding, pan-seared red chile mahi.
Red Oven Pizza Bakery: Also new on CityWalk, it offers salads and Neapolitan-style pizzas made to order in a stone-lined oven. Marjie Lambert
