We have a perfect recommendation if you want to enjoy Mediterranean food in a luxe, but less expensive dining experience. Snag a monorail from Magic Kingdom to The Grand Floridian Resort and Spa to dine at Citricos Lounge. The Citricos Lounge is located outside Citricos restaurant on the second floor of this deluxe Resort. Drop by to enjoy a glass of wine or an expertly mixed cocktail like the orange blossom martini made with Diplomatico Rum, Orange Blossom Honey, Lemon Juice, and topped with a Ginger Foam.

We recommend the Wild Mushrooms Arancini if you are searching for a shareable small bite or a small plate to make a menu. This Sicilian-inspired dish is a food staple in this Mediterranean/Italian cuisine stream. This delectable dish is basically a fried rice ball that can be changed up with different mix-ins. The Wild Mushroom Arancini is made with Truffle Aïoli and served with a Watercress and Champagne Vinaigrette. This eat rings in at $14, and we promise you’ll enjoy every crunchy bite.

Roulade of Chicken

If you have never tried a roulade, this is your lucky day. A European method of cooking that involves rolling meat or pastry around fillings like vegetables, cheese, or even other meats, and this cooking method makes for a unique and oh-so flavorful dish. Citricos Lounge serves up Roulade of Chicken which is absolutely mouthwatering.

Coming in at $38, this entrée of Roulade of Chicken is served with braised kale, a corn cake, Romesco sauce, and tender roasted turnips. Thanks to the cooking style, you’ll find the chicken incredibly moist and the meal itself hard to beat. The flavors of the savory chicken, bitter kale and sweet corn cake are perfect compliments!

Let’s take a stroll out the International Gateway of EPCOT and over to Disney’s BoardWalk Resort for our next meal. Trattoria al Forno is located on the picturesque Disney BoardWalk and serves up fresh Mediterranean and Italian cuisine. One of our favorite appetizer offerings at this eatery is the coastal mussels.

Cooked in a Vino Bianco, topped with shaved fennel, served with chiles, and drizzled with a pesto cream, this appetizer is a major win. The perfect balance of fresh Mediterranean flavor balanced with the briny mussels makes for an interesting and delicious dish. This appetizer rings in at a bit higher price of $18.

Enjoy a delicious table service meal at Trattoria al Forno and then wander out to explore the boardwalk, snag a cocktail at a nearby bar or just enjoy the ambiance.

Can anything beat a delicious charcuterie board? No, not even on a Walt Disney World vacation. In fact, Disney World Resort has some pretty epic charcuterie boards on table service and quick-service menus across the property. Another delicious starter on the Trattoria al Forno menu is the Salumi.

The Salumi order consists of Cured Meats, Cheeses, and Pickled Harvest Vegetables. Talk about getting an authentic taste of the Mediterranean, there is nothing quite like enjoying charcuterie pairings in their purest form. The Salumi is perfect for sharing between two Guests and rings in at $15.

Other delicious appetizer options on this menu include a classic Insalata Caprese for $13 or a crunchy and juicy Roma Tomato Brushetta that also rings in at $13. With a variety of such delicious eats on this menu, I could make a meal entirely from the starter options on this menu!

I am a huge fan of a simple but fresh salad and the Terralina Crafted Salad fits the bill. The full portion of the salad costs $16 and makes for a really hearty meal. This robust salad is composed of romaine lettuce, and bocconcini, and is scattered with shaved Parmesan.

The salad is spiced up further by fennel, bright cherry tomatoes, crunchy red onion, salami, pepperoncini, and a red wine vinaigrette dressing. This plant-based meal scores major points for being a healthy meal choice on vacation and just being downright delicious!

 

As you can see, there is an abundance of delicious Mediterranean-inspired dishes available for you to enjoy on your Walt Disney World vacation. As always, this is not an exhaustive list (check out Fresh Mediterranean Market too) but thinking through these Disney dining options as you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation will be helpful.

From Magic Kingdom area resorts (Citricos) to Disney Springs staples (Terralina Crafted Italian) and EPCOT area eateries (Trattoria al Forno) you’ll surely be able to find a delectable Mediterranean-inspired dish you can’t pass up!

About Katie Chapman

Hey There! I am a Georgia native with a passion for writing, traveling, cooking, decorating, pugs and of course all things Disney. Growing up in South Georgia just a few hours from Walt Disney World made for a magical childhood. Some of my best memories were made on Main Street U.S.A. with my sister watching SpectroMagic nighttime parade or beside my grandparents, parents and extended family at Chef Mickey’s celebrating on a family vacation. Epcot was my favorite park from a young age and I credit it with my interest in and love for international travel. As a kid I loved meeting characters and watching films around World Showcase and could spend hours exploring each of the countries in Epcot. These days, my husband and I get away to explore a new country whenever we can and even incorporate trips to The Disney Store and Disney Parks around the world in our travels. One of our travel goals is to visit every Disney Park in the world. I love writing about Disney restaurants, park tips, Disney outfit inspiration and Disney history. Pocahontas is my favorite Disney Princess (90s kid here!) but Mr. Toad is my spirit animal. When I’m not at Disney I’m reading about park history, watching Disney documentaries and shopping vintage Disney merch for park outfits. I never pass up a reservation to Ohana, an empty seat on Living with the Land or a Violet Sake.
