June Disney Dining Update Includes a New Brunch at Disney Springs
This month’s Disney Dining Update includes a new dining location, a brand new brunch, and new menu items!
A New Lounge Opens at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort:
A brand-new lounge recently opened at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World Resort. Rix Sports Bar & Grill is a place to unwind, grab a delicious drink and watch your favorite game . The menu includes a unique twist on classic bar food, handcrafted cocktails, and local draft beers.
The appetizers include classics like wings and nachos and feature items such as Lobster Sliders with fresh lobster salad on Parker House rolls and Veggie Lettuce Wraps with sautéed peppers, onions, squash, zucchini, and an Asian sesame marinade. There’s also my favorite, the Watchos, a delicious basket of crispy waffle fries with queso blanco, bacon, and scallions.
For the entrées, you’ll find items such as Short Rib Chili, Rix Salad, the BBQ Ranch Burger, and 15-Spice BBQ Ribs. One of their signature items is the Bacon Cheeseburger with crispy onion straws, peppered thick-cut bacon, tomato, lettuce, and your choice of cheese.
New Brunch at Disney Springs:
One of my favorite things to do on Sunday is to indulge in a brunch with my closest family and friends. Well I have just seen the new menu from Chef Art Smith's Homecomin' at Disney Springs and now we have a new place to go for brunch pronto! Starting on June 24, you can enjoy the Rise & Shine Southern Brunch on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
You’ll find cheddar drop biscuits served with either blackberry fig jam or sawmill gravy and then there the DOUGHNUTS! You can either get Bacon & Pecan Doughnuts drizzled with caramel or the Rise N’ Shine house-made sugar doughnuts served with spiced cane syrup and seasonal fruit. Count me in!
Other items on the menu include a selection of southern comfort foods like the Hallelujah Biscuit & the Sunrise Burger. The Hallelujah Biscuit is an open-faced big biscuit topped with Chef Art’s famous fried chicken, two fried eggs, pimento cheese, and pecan-smoked bacon and then it's smothered in sawmill gravy. The Sunrise Burger topped with pecan-smoked bacon, a fried egg, white cheddar, and tomato-bacon jam.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort:
Some refreshing new coffee beverages and snacks have arrived at the Oasis Bar & Grill. Kalua Pork Sliders with a Seven Seas Salty Caramel cold brew with vodka, coffee liqueur, and a caramel garnish sounds like a nice break from the theme park hopping. Also new on the menu includes an Island Java-rita cold brew coffee margarita with premium tequila, orange liqueur, and flavors of mango, guava, and ginger. There’s also the Tahitian Vanilla cold brew with Irish whisky, Irish cream, vanilla, and whipped cream.
One of my favorite bakeries on Disney property has some new savory pastry turnovers including the Meat Lovers Pastry Turnover with scrambled eggs, ham, pork sausage, jalapeños, and crème fraiche or the Vegetarian Pastry Turnover with scrambled eggs, spinach, basil, piquillo peppers, and crème fraîche.
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge:
At Artist Point, you’ll find two new menu items – the first is a Wild Halibut Cioppino. Serving two, this dish comes with clams, mussels, bay scallops, Carolina gold rice, pigeon peas, and baby fennel. The second dish is the Farm Egg Pappardelle with duck ragoût, English peas, dandelion greens, and aged cow’s milk cheese. If you like sweet treats you can head over to Roaring Fork and try the new Chocolate Caramel Mousse.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom:
A new yummy Italian Sausage Hoagie is available at the Dino Diner topped with sautéed peppers and onions and served with potato chips.
