Today Lisa takes us to Senses at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. According to Disney:

Rejuvenation awaits you in a serene sanctuary that captures the pastoral beauty of the American countryside. Here, nature meets nurture. Reminiscent of New York’s legendary mineral springs, the spa will transport you to another era—to a time when people looked to the land for health and prosperity.

Let’s go.

We head out to Magic Kingdom on a particularly wet Wednesday afternoon – July 22, 2015. So wet that I didn’t want to pull Tom out and get him wet, so we just have this cell phone picture of the entrance.

Disney released what’s expected to more or less be the complete lineup for this year’s Food and Wine Festival booth menus here: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/epcot/food-wine-marketplaces/. You can click “read more” under the name of each Marketplace for the menus. Or just follow along here. For each marketplace, I’ll list the new items and copy/paste my reviews of returning items from last year along with last year’s pricing. Expect prices to be 25 to 50 cents more expensive this year. For a complete look at last year, including pictures of the various kiosks, menus, and reviews of just about everything, visit this link. The reviews are broken up into something like seven parts with links to previous pieces at the top. Completely new booths are listed at the end.

Africa:

New items:

  • Buttered chicken with micro cilantro and naan bread
  • Indaba Chenin Blanc
  • DeMorgenzon DMZ Cabernet Róse
  • Jar Sweet Shiraz

The wines are available in bottles at Animal Kingdom Lodge and Zuri’s Sweets at the Animal Kingdom theme park. The chicken sounds like it’s right out of Sanaa’s playbook.

Returning items:

  • Berbere-style beef tenderloin tips with onions, jalapeños, tomato and pap ($4.50)
  • Fairview Pinotage ($3.25)

Beef tenderloin tips berbere-style with okra, jalapeños, tomato and pap. You can smell how spicy it is as you walk by. That spiciness overwhelmed whatever other flavors were going on for me. The pap underneath, which is ground corn porridge, soaks up the lingering spicy sauce from the beef. If you like spicy dishes, you should enjoy the beef here. But if you don’t, it’s best to steer clear. The quantity is a good value for the money. But it’s really spicy.

I am crestfallen and rather despondent in admitting to you, my treasured audience, that the website has failed in providing you with up-to-date information on the All-Star food court refurbishments. BUT THAT ENDS TODAY with a very brief look at All Star Music’s Intermission Food Court. Oh boy.

We pop into Magic Kingdom on the evening of Monday July 13th with the patriotic bunting still lining the train station. Speaking of the holiday, as I mentioned in a previous post, poor weather kept a lot of people away. A look at wait times over the course of the day:

We spent a considerable amount of time considering morning touring about two weeks ago in this post, in addition to a review of a couple new items at Flame Tree and a second visit to Harambe Market for the Karubi-spiced Ribs, Boerewors Sausage, and Africa Milk Tart, among other things. Today, we’ll return to try a few snacks that had to be skipped last time and look at a few more menus.
