Value: Below average to average. This is standard Disney quick service in almost every way.
Reputation: Below average. Offering a boring menu at the usual Disney prices, there aren’t a lot of reasons to visit with so much high quality food at Sunshine Seasons and the World Showcase.
Mushroom and Swiss Burger:
Disney burgers are pretty much the same – overcooked with lackluster toppings. The bacon and mushrooms pictured are probably optimistic, but it will certainly fill you up.
Chicken Breast Nuggets:
Like the Burgers, Disney Chicken Nuggets are basically the same theme-park-wide. The exterior is light/crispy and they aren’t greasy. The nuggets are quite good dipped in sauce, though nothing spectacular or much different than Tyson brand nuggets you can heat in the oven at home. If you’re looking for something that isn’t quite as heavy and don’t want a salad, then the nuggets aren’t a bad idea. At nearly $9, they don’t offer much value though. The Buffalo version have a bit of a kick to them.
And like the Burgers and Nuggets, the Meatball Subs are the same at Pinocchio Village Haus and Toy Story Pizza Planet. This is from Pizza Planet, where it’s served with a side salad instead of grapes or fries. This tasted okay. I’m sure the meatballs are made with 70% lean ground beef, making it high in fat. There wasn’t a ton of flavor, but the meatballs were quite soft and easy to eat. The melted provolone cheese didn’t seem to add much flavor either, making for an ultimately forgettable sandwich. It was quite filling and nothing about it was offensive, but it’s going to be a pretty heavy meal and I didn’t find it to be flavorful.
Hand Tossed Caesar Salad with Chicken:
The prototypical Disney Caesar Salad is about as generic as it gets with a bed of romaine topped with parmesan cheese pieces, chicken, and Ken’s Caesar Dressing. Salads aren’t typically loaded with chicken – what you see up top is what you get. If it’s what you’re looking for, they’re just fine, but don’t expect to be wowed.
Roasted Zucchini and Eggplant on Red Pepper Spread topped with Yogurt Dressing.
It didn’t sound particularly good.
And I didn’t care much for it. The pepper spread seemed harsh, and while a “little different,” unnecessary. Tomato or tomato basil or something would have worked fine. A nice cheese topping also would have gone a long way and added a bit of heft to the dish. As it stands, this wouldn’t be much more than a decent snack for anyone but the lightest eaters. That said, I’m not necessarily the target demographic for anything vegetarian, so if you’ve tried it and enjoyed it much more, feel free to let me know I’m wrong. I love it.
Outdoor seating is plentiful and indoor, air-conditioned seating is almost always available. If it’s busy, they open second floor seating. Head up there for fewer people. More detailed pictures coming.
