Have you heard about the new Food Trucks they have at the Downtown Disney area in the Walt Disney World Resort?
The food trucks are just one part of the massive overhaul Downtown Disney is undergoing to become Disney Springs. Justin and I were so excited to check them out—food trucks are so in right now!
The first thing we noticed about the food trucks is their location. They can be found at the back end of the West Side section of Downtown Disney, just beside the Cirque du Soleil theater.
There are four food trucks, each representing the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks: Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot Park, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
We tried one dish from each food truck. (And Maisy helped too!)
The first truck we tried was the Superstar Catering truck, inspired by the favorite foods of the movie stars at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The dishes offered food with a Mediterranean flair. We tried the Lamb Meatball Flatbread Sandwich, a delicious gyro-inspired meatball sandwich on warm pita bread, garnished with an arugula salad and Tzatziki sauce.
Next we went over to the World Showcase of Flavors truck. Inspired by crowd favorites at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, this truck offered food and wine parings from Florida Local, Poland, and Hop & Barley stands from the festival.
During the festival this past fall, Justin and I couldn’t get enough of the Grass Fed Beef Sliders. Perfectly tender beef, with sweet pickles and a bit of cheese–perfection! The latter from the truck comes with two sliders—and amazing relief to Justin and I because we used to fight over the last bite of them!
The Namaste Café truck offers flavors from Disney’s Animal Kingdom—including my favorite Buttered Chicken from Sanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
Served with the most AMAZING naan bread you ever did taste. I could eat this stuff every single day for the rest of my life and never get tired of it.
Our final stop was at the Fantasy Fare truck. This truck offers three dishes inspired by the Magic Kingdoms around the world. There is a glass noodle salad representing Hong Kong Disneyland, a Croque Monsieur (a fancy Grilled cheese) representing Disneyland Paris.
But, the Coup de gras of all the trucks was the corn dog representing Disneyland California. This hand-dipped corn dog was absolutely to die for (and I’m not a corn dog person by any means.)
The Food Trucks were definitely a lot of fun, but not exactly cost effective. As amazing as the corn dog was, it was $7.50! However, each truck did offer Kid’s portions. No say as to whether or not that affected the price, but if you’re travelling with small children, it might be your best bet!
Have you tried anything at the Downtown Disney Food trucks? What was your favorite?
Food trucks and Disney, my two fav things!
