Ever wished you could make a mega meal with all the yummy options around the Disney Parks or with the food at Disney Springs? I have! Let’s plan a mega meal from all the best options at Disney Springs and visit different eateries: progressive supper style!
A progressive supper means you enjoy different courses in different locations. Not only does this enable you to enjoy the best food selection in each location you visit, but it also allows you to slow down and enjoy the experience of a meal. Walt Disney World Dining is such a fun and delicious part of a vacation. This is how my progressive supper/mega meal at Disney Springs would unfold.
Let’s start this meal off on a delicious note at Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill. Located in the Town Center area of Disney Springs, Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill delivers on specialty dishes that are big on flavor. We have so many favorites on this menu including the truffle potato chips, the prosciutto pizza, and the Florida black grouper. But tonight, we are here for a salad. The Waterkist Farm Heirloom Tomato Salad features fresh and bright basil pesto and aged balsamic vinegar drizzled on top of freshly made a local burrata.
Ringing in at $18, the salad isn’t cheap but it is unique, fresh and so very flavorful. When we say this dish is divine, that is not an understatement. This salad serves up all the local flavor of the area. In fact, Waterkist Farm is a local Florida farm. The tomatoes are fresh and more flavorful than I am accustomed to. Plus, anytime I can pass a cheese-heavy dish off as a salad I consider that a win.
Sometimes an uncomplicated classic is the best choice. For the soup course, we will head to Morimoto Asia located at The Landing. Chef Morimoto of Iron Chef America founded this awesome eatery. Morimoto Asia fuses Asian cuisines and serves up a fun and fancy dining experience. Guests with an adventurous palate looking to taste seafood, sushi, and other Asian delicacies will love this restaurant.
Tonight, we are just ordering soup but we have made an excellent choice. A simple but flavorful Egg Drop Soup really hits the spot. A bowl of Egg Drop Soup costs only $9.00 and it’s made from a flavorful duck broth, with silky egg wisps and garnished with crab, scallions, and sesame seeds.
Next, we will visit The Boathouse to indulge in one of the more famous Disney Springs cocktails. That’s right yours, I’m talking about the Duck Duck Razz. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more aesthetic drink. After all, the adorable glass is filled with a beautiful sky blue cocktail with a miniature rubber duck floating atop your drink.
The good news is this cocktail is as delicious as it is adorable. Stoli Razz, Peach Schnapps, and Blue Curaçao combined with a simple syrup and fresh lemon you will make you fall in love with this cocktail! The Duck Duck Razz rings up at $13.00. After you have sipped your cocktail a while, take a few minutes to enjoy the view from the deck of The Boathouse as you watch the Amphicars launch into the nearby water and enjoy the beauty of this area of Disney Springs.
For our appetizer let’s head over to Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant at The Landing. It doesn’t get much more fun than an Irish pub with live music and that’s exactly what you’ll find it Raglan Road. Famous for its excellent music and dance entertainment Guests drop by to enjoy a pint and a meal. If the weather is nice you will see Guests enjoying the day in the outdoor seating area.
Today we are indulging in the Nom Nom Wings for the appetizer course. Chicken wings are a classic appetizer choice that we cannot get enough of. The sweet and spicy wings hit the spot and are the perfect balance of sweet, zesty, and spicy. Coming in at $16 these wings are just one of the awesome appetizer options on the menu at Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant.
You can’t mess with a classic. Though I’ve eaten it many times during trips to Disney Springs, my main course of choice would still hands-down be Art’s Famous Fried Chicken from Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’. When we say this heavy dish is one heck of an entrée we made it. Think buttermilk brined fried chicken served up with a heap of homemade mashed potatoes and a cheddar drop biscuit with any other sides you choose to add on.
This meal is Southern hospitality on a plate, and we are obsessed. Located in The Landing section of Disney Springs, Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ serves up traditional Southern food like okra fries, gator bites, chicken and dumpling soup, and fried catfish.
This entrée of fried chicken rings up at $32 but easily serves two adults. If you’d rather not share, purchase this entrée for yourself with the intention of taking some back to your hotel room to snack on later. You will not be sorry you tried Art’s Famous Fried Chicken.
These days, choosing only one dessert at Disney Springs is pretty much criminal. There are a plethora of can’t be missed dessert options so this is super difficult to choose. However, we are hitting a classic ice cream spot to round out this mega meal at Disney Springs. Join me for a visit to Disney Spring’s Marketplace for a sundae at Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop. You really cannot beat a classic soda fountain and Ghirardelli is second to none in my opinion.
The Warm Brownie Sundae, the Cookie Bits Crissy Fields Sundae, and phenomenal shakes like a Frozen Hot Cocoa are all phenomenal. But today, I am opting for a Sea Salt Caramel Sundae. At $14.75 this vanilla ice-cream-based Sundae is drizzled with caramel sauce and your choice of dark or milk chocolate hot fudge. The creation is sprayed with whipped cream, sprinkled with sea salt, and garnished with a milk or dark sea salt caramel square, based on your preference. The sweet and salty marriage in this decadent sundae is life-changing. Snag a table in the outdoor seating area outside the ice cream shop to enjoy your sundae and watch shoppers stroll.
It would not be logical to end this mega meal at any other coffee spot. Joffrey’s, Starbucks, and specialty coffees at restaurants around Disney Springs are all great choices. Still, my go-to coffee spot as an iced coffee lover at Disney Springs is hands-down Everglazed Donuts and Cold Brew. Located on The West Side, this shop really delivers when it comes to pastries and coffee. This area was once home to Downtown Disney’s Pleasure Island but now it houses one of my favorite coffee spots at Walt Disney World.
Everglazed Donuts and Cold Brew is famous for funky donuts like the Nutella Boston Cream and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. But they have some incredible coffees as well. Let’s cap off this progressive supper/mega meal with a nitro cold brew topped with cinnamon bun cold foam. Nitro cold brews are $5 with a cold foam topping ringing up at an extra $.75. This rich iced coffee makes for a perfect end to this mega meal.
