Johnny Depp has a long history with the Walt Disney Company across several areas. He’s most known for his starring role in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise, leading to featured cameos in Walt Disney World’s famous Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. He’s also known for starring in classics like Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands, the Fantastic Beasts series, and Alice in Wonderland.
The recent controversy over Depp’s relations with Amber Heard has kept him in the limelight, but not for the best reasons. As the controversy has died down, many are questioning the star’s future with the Walt Disney Company across film and other areas.
Today, I’m taking on the most asked question on DisneyDining.com: What would Johnny Depp eat in Walt Disney World? I know, I know, you’ve all been wondering. The wait is over; today, we are talking about where Johnny Depp would eat on his visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.
Starting off with the most important meal of the day, Johnny Depp would grab a hearty breakfast at Kona Cafe. This table service restaurant is found at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, serving up fresh favorites. Depp often starts his day with a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, so he would order the Steel-cut Oatmeal with Apples. He’d also add to this with a side of a Fresh Fruit Cup and a Twinings Hot Tea.
Johnny Depp is known to eat 5-6 meals a day, even while pursuing strict diets for filming. So, that means that this icon will need a solid mid-morning snack. Depp is not messing around with his Park Day, so he’s heading straight to Animal Kingdom. After rope-dropping Flight of Passage, he will stop at The Smiling Crocodile in Discovery Island for a solid snack of Street Corn Tacos. These Street Corn Tacos are filled with black beans, roasted corn, poblano peppers, and red onion, perfect for a mid-morning burst of energy!
For his next stop, he’s continuing his Park day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Since he doesn’t have an advanced dining reservation but wants to dine in true Hollywood fashion, he will head to the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge. This lounge serves all the divine menu items of the restaurant without needing a dining reservation. Here, sticking to his healthy habits, Depp will order the Lounge’s Famous Cobb Salad, featuring roasted turkey, bacon, egg, tomatoes, blue cheese, and avocado.
As he starts to need a midday pick-me-up, Depp will head to Magic Kingdom. Now we know that this star eats healthy, but no portrayer of Captain Jack Sparrow can visit the Magic Kingdom without stopping by Tortuga Tavern. At this quick service location, he will order the Orange Chicken Strips topped with green onions and a Dasani bottled water to help him stay hydrated during his Park day.
We know that Johnny Depp is keeping up with all the current trends, so he made an advanced dining reservation at the newly opened Shiki-Sai: Sushi Izakaya. This brand-new restaurant is located in EPCOT’s Japan Pavilion. Here, Depp will order the Hashi for 2-4, the Chef’s Special featuring a bridge presentation of assorted sushi and sashimi. He’ll also order one of his favorites, green tea.
As he returns to his resort for the night, he has one more stop for a late-night cocktail. Everyone knows that Depp’s character, Captain Jack Sparrow, has a deep appreciation for rum, so he’s headed to Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto. This secret Disney bar is the perfect place if you love rum and serves unique and trendy cocktails. Depp will finish his night with the Polynesian Pearl (a nod to The Black Pearl) with “two shots of rum!”
