We’re rediscovering lots of food favorites as many Disney resort restaurants are offering to-go and take out food. We’ve been gushing about ordering to go from Sanaa via the MyDisneyExperience app. Over the past few weeks Disney has rolled out the expansion of mobile ordering to additional Disney resort restaurants. Kona Cafe and The Wave recently started, and now Olivia’s at Old Key West has joined the mobile ordering line-up.
Our readers rate Olivia’s with a 92% thumbs up, and it is ranked at 21 out of 103 table service restaurants at Walt Disney World. Olivia’s is the hometown favorite of Old Key West. Opening with the resort back in 1991, Olivia’s is a place that holds decades of memories for Disney Vacation Club members.
The interior dining room feels like visiting your retired grandparents at their island home down in the Florida Keys. Homely décor mixed with old Florida tropical touches creates an atmosphere only Old Key West could provide.
Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Olivia’s is always there to feed your family. The menu is a nice mix of Southern comfort food with a few tropical twists. Our team picked up some dinner to go, ordering the Southernmost Buttermilk Chicken and Conch Fritters. Both were packed up nicely each in to-go boxes. The food would hold up well if traveling back to your Old Key West villa, or even to another Disney resort.
The Southernmost Buttermilk Chicken brings out the Southern side of the menu with mashed potatoes, Southern gravy, a biscuit, and green beans. The portion could be more than enough for one person, especially when paired with an appetizer. For $20.00 this entrée is a good value.
Conch Fritters are a Key West staple and showcase the island influence on the menu. The fritters were a little chewy, which is often the case with Conch Fritters, and have a mild onion flavor. The highlight of this appetizer are the dipping sauces of Key Lime-Mustard and Roasted Pepper Remoulade. For $12.00 there are a decent value, and if you’re curious about conch they are a good way to introduce yourself.
Practically the full menu is available to order for take out through mobile ordering. One thing I noticed is that you can order wine by the bottle for take out through the app. Wines by the glass are just the standard plastic Copa Di Vino, whereas the wines by the bottle selection are the same wines you can enjoy at the restaurant itself. Of course, the price per bottle is a huge mark up compared to the normal retail price, but if you’re looking for a way to make your take out meal something special, this is a great way to do so.
