Nomad Lounge offers the adventurous and elegant spirit of Tiffins Restaurant with a more relaxed and casual dining atmosphere. As a nod to the international flavors that fill the menu, the restaurant is decorated with banners with questions for Guests to ponder about travel and discovery. Guests can purchase a “tag” to answer a question and have it added to the restaurant’s tag chandelier, meant to inspire others on their journey of discovery. Part of the proceeds for each tag purchased go to the Disney Conservation Fund.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
