Sebastian’s Bistro at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort opened their doors on June 24. If you’re looking for a relaxing and convenient place to enjoy a delicious menu, Sebastian’s is your place. Conveniently arrive at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort using the Disney Skyliner. Then simply prepare yourself for the delicious tastes of the Caribbean and a family-style meal at dinner. Disney previously shared, “Sebastian’s signature buttery house-baked pull-apart rolls will get you started (YUM), and the entire table will enjoy the Taste of the Caribbean platter featuring oven-roasted citrus chicken, slow-cooked mojo pork with mango sambal, and grilled flank steak with mojito relish. This hearty platter comes with sides of cilantro rice and beans, vegetable curry, and grilled broccolini. Coconut shrimp can also be ordered as an add-on to your meal. The best part? You finish with the ultimate sweet treat – the popular coconut-pineapple bread pudding!”

Yee-haw! The tasty and fun Trail’s End Restaurant at The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort reopened on July 17 with hearty family-style skillets for breakfast and dinner. Disney previously shared, “Mosey on over to Fort Wilderness to start your morning with an oven-fresh pastry basket and berry granola yogurt parfait for the table, followed by a hearty family-style skillet with smoked brisket and eggs, bacon, sausage, and cheesy potato casserole. Of course, no breakfast is complete without Mickey waffles! Adults can sip on Moonshine Morning Cocktails – a Pioneer Mimosa with passion, orange, and guava juices and a Mountain Mary with moonshine. Dinner at Trail’s End is a rootin’ tootin’ good time that starts with hushpuppies and skillet cornbread with a chopped garden salad for the table. The family-style Smokehouse Skillet comes with pecan-smoked brisket, rotisserie chicken, andouille sausage, fingerlings potatoes, green beans, and buttered corn on the cob. Pork spare ribs, peel n’ eat shrimp, and cornbread-crusted salmon are available as tasty add-ons to your meal. But be sure to save room for the Covered Wagon Sundae – a wagon load of ice cream, toppings, brownies, cookies, and chocolate-covered bacon! Adults can even kick back with Moonshine Cocktails.”

The newly reimagined Cítricos at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa reopened on July 15 allowing guests to now dine “underneath the lovely London sky”! That’s right, this whimsy and elegant restaurant was reimagined to be inspired by the film, Mary Poppins Returns. Disney previously shared, “Taking subtle cues from the movie’s animated sequence, the dining room brings guests into a fanciful garden setting where you can “trip a little light fantastic” as you experience the restaurant surrounded by the glow from decorative lamps and chandeliers. Chef Andres Mendoza crafted a new menu with starters like Sweet Corn Bisque with pickled fennel, popcorn, and fennel oil and a colorful Strawberry Salad with chamomile-infused goat cheese, frisée lettuce, bacon vinaigrette, and spiced sunflower seeds. Entrées include Butter-poached Florida Cobia with mashed fingerling potatoes, grilled asparagus, and local mushrooms with a grapefruit beurre blanc or a delicious Guava Barbequed Short Ribs with aged cheddar creamy grits, roasted poblano, curtido slaw, and Brussels sprouts.”

We’re loving it! As more and more guests are making their return to Walt Disney World, we’re thrilled to see the ever increasing need to reopen more restaurants and resorts. Keep them coming, Disney!
