This month on Best Bites I’ve got some exciting new eats at Epcot, Magic Kingdom Park, and Disney’s BoardWalk Bakery. My mouth is already watering just thinking about them, so let’s get right into it!
Starting with Epcot, Le Cellier Steakhouse has added two new delicious poutine offerings to the menu both featuring Le Cellier’s freshly-cut fries. The first dish is Beef Brisket Benedict Poutine, which is topped with Canadian cheddar, Montreal smoked brisket, sauce choron, and a 62-degree poached egg. The second dish is Beef Bourguignon Poutine, which is topped with gruyere cheese, truffle, and garlic aioli. These two dishes are available all day and make a great mid-day meal. If you’re looking for the perfect place to eat lunch, stop by Le Cellier Steakhouse!
At Magic Kingdom Park, Casey’s Corner is bringing the heat with September’s Hot Diggity Dog of the Month: the Jalapeno Popper Dog! It’s topped with cheese sauce, garlic ranch drizzle, bacon bits, jalapeno poppers, and pickled jalapenos. For October’s Hot Diggity Dog of the Month, get ready for the Loaded Mashed Potato Hot Diggity Dog topped with garlic mashed potatoes, caramelized onions, cheddar, bacon, scallion sour cream, and green onions. And over at Pinocchio Village Haus, you have to try September’s Flatbread of the Month – the Breakfast Flatbread topped with sausage gravy, cheddar cheese, and bacon. For October’s Flatbread of the Month, you’ll find the Apple Sausage and Brie Flatbread with apple butter spread, brie cheese, sausage, apples, sour cream, lettuce pico, and cinnamon sugar.
Before you go to Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid in Fantasyland, why not head on over to Prince Eric’s Village Market for some Sweet Thai Chili Shrimp? This new dish is tossed in chili mayo and consists of vegetable slaw, ginger vinaigrette, poached shrimp with salt and lemon, and black sesame seeds.
Hankering for a hand-held snack? Liberty Square Market has a couple new skewers just for you! Try the Chicken Skewer marinated with a spicy sweet sauce, or chow down on the Candied Bacon Skewer. These are definitely must-try savory snacks, and they taste AMAZING!
I also have some exciting news regarding The Plaza Restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park! Breakfast is coming soon to this quaint little restaurant on Main Street, U.S.A. starting on November 4. Start your day by fueling up with a family-friendly hearty breakfast. Choose from dishes like the Classic All-American Breakfast featuring scrambled eggs with breakfast potatoes, sausage, bacon, a biscuit, and MICKEY WAFFLES. There’s also the Lobster Benedict with crispy fried green tomatoes, buttery lobster, two poached eggs, and hollandaise. This dish is also served with house-made breakfast potatoes. In addition, you can create your own omelet with fresh ingredients including sausage, bacon, ham, onions, peppers, tomatoes, and cheese.
For the kiddos, they’ll enjoy options such as the popular Mickey Waffles! This dish comes with fresh-cut fruit, sausage, and bacon, and the Mickey Waffles are served over banana cream, dusted with powdered sugar, and topped with Mickey-shaped sprinkles! Breakfast at The Plaza Restaurant will be served daily from 8am to 10:30am for a limited time starting on November 4 and ending on January 5, and reservations are highly recommended.

On the topic of breakfast, the BoardWalk Bakery at Disney’s Boardwalk is serving up a few new breakfast sandwiches! These on-the-go eats make for a great snack on your way to the parks. There’s the Butter Butter Sandwich, the Everything Everything Sandwich, and the Ooey Gooey Sandwich. The Butter Butter Sandwich comes with shaved ham, scrambled eggs, and buttery fontina cheese spread on brioche, and the Everything Everything Sandwich comes with a cage-free fried eggs and Tillamook cheddar on an everything bagel. My favorite sandwich, though, is the Ooey Gooey Sandwich! This one comes with a cage-free poached egg, cheddar, mozzarella, capicola, and an oven-dried tomato on an artisan roll.
Right next door to the BoardWalk Bakery is the newly-reopened Pizza Window! Open for lunch and dinner, you’ll find a brand-new menu here. For the pizzas, order up a personal pizza or even a whole pizza for the entire family! Options include a cheese pizza, pepperoni pizza, mushroom pizza, and a white pizza with bacon and mushrooms.
A Meatball Sub and an Italian Hoagie Sandwich are also available and come with chips. For the sides, try the Caprese Salad or the Antipasto Salad. To quench your thirst, pair your meal with a draft beer, sangria, or your choice of fountain beverage. And if you’ve got a hankering for something sweet, then the Mini Cannoli are just for you!
If all of these eats are making you as hungry as I am right now, come on out and try them for yourselves! For full menus, more info, and to make dining reservations, visit the Walt Disney World Resort website or call (407) WDW-DINE (407 939-3463).
