The TouringPlans in-park team gets to try a lot of food and drink. From quick service locations to table service meals and snacks in between, we try so many different foods to help keep information on our site up to date. Sometimes foods and drinks are wonderful. Other times, not as much. But what really rose to the top? Here’s our top 3 food or drink options the in-park team sampled this week.
Cinnamon Roll at Gaston’s Tavern, Magic Kingdom
It’s a breakfast that needs no introduction. No one makes cinnamon rolls like Gaston. . . or at least at his namesake tavern. Massive, fluffy, and with all the icing you could want, these cinnamon rolls are probably more legendary than Gaston himself!
Admiral’s Tower for Two at Yachtsman Steakhouse, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
Confession time — we dined there on opening night and the experience overall was full of issues, so we’re opting not to review it at this time. We’ll go back soon when the opening night jitters are done and give it a fair review that should be more accurate (for better or worse) of what the typical guest could expect.
But one thing we DID enjoy was the Seafood Tower. The seafood was fresh and the variety was amazing. You’ll pay a pretty penny for this appetizer (it’s $135!), but this combination of Maine lobster, snow crab, tuna tartare, jumbo shrimp, mussels, scallop ceviche, and charred octopus salad is worth every penny for taste, quality, and presentation.
Spaniard for Two at Toledo, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
Charcuterie. We love it. No question, if charcuterie is on the menu, we’ll order it. This was a wonderful offering with a delightfully strong Manchego cheese and savory Marcona almonds, plus tissue-thin ham that was delicate in texture but bold in flavor. And the sweet fig jam? It’s like candy on a plate. This is truly the tapas vibe and we’d gladly go for drinks and this again.
That’s just some of the amazing things we’ve eaten this week. Have any suggestions for us next week? Let us know in the comments.
