Food, drink and restaurants I wish existed at Walt Disney World

December 11, 2013

I love to eat and drink, and I love Walt Disney World. For me, one of the best things about visiting the parks is experiencing the different cuisines offered, especially at Epcot’s World Showcase. Restaurant Marrakesh in the Morocco pavilion is currently my favorite, but the tequila cave in Mexico is a close second. Yes, it counts. I’m from New Orleans, where booze takes the place of bread at the bottom of the food pyramid. I dare you to visit and not go to a drive-thru daiquiri shop, where they hand you alcohol through the window. But don’t worry – it’s in a Styrofoam cup (with a lid!), so it’s totally legal.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios (J/K though – I also had pasta).

Anyway, back to Disney. My favorite snack at WDW is surprisingly pretty run of the mill: a Mickey ice-cream bar. So great on a hot day, which occurs roughly 11 months out of the year here. I’m a big fan of anything chocolate, especially dark chocolate. So when I mentioned to my friend Katlyn that I was writing a blog on would-be WDW food items, I was obviously offended, because here’s what went down:

As if the chocolate shaming wasn’t enough, notice how she deals an extra blow by reminding me that I’m getting married and trying to lose some weight beforehand. This is what I get for consulting others. Next she’s going to suggest they take the froyo out of the incredible Dole Whip. I forgive her because she’s on medication that doesn’t allow her to have chocolate or anything with caffeine right now (and apparently may be addling her brain, as well), but still. There’s a line, man.

I prefer my chocolate with chocolate.
Excuse my humidity-addled hair. In December.

If it was up to me, I wouldn’t change anything about the food/restaurants that are currently available at at WDW. But I would like to add a few things …

    I especially like the Beignet idea. Yum! Also, what’s up with spell check on here telling me it’s misspelled. You LIE spell check! I have Merriam-Webster on my side.

    Me too! And apparently the ones at Port Orleans aren’t that great. My friend who has had them says they’re basically funnel cake. Which I love, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not a beignet.

    Pshhh spell check has nothing on NOLA!

    I wish I could find Torino’s pizza from Oviedo in Disney World. My little nephews always drag me to fancy place in Disney world -which I’m really not so in to- I would love Disney even more if I can enjoy also my favorite pizza there.

    I’ve never been to Torino’s! I guess I need to take a trip over there.
