Food and Drink Reviews
$8.50 Buffalo Chicken Chips
The shredded buffalo chicken is the same as what Disney served in the sliders, if anyone remembers those from a few years ago. The chicken enjoys a little bit of a spicy kick to it that may be a little mild for those looking for something seriously spicy.
You could ask about adding some more hot sauce. I appreciated the peppery spice of the chicken against the piquant spiciness of the creamy blue cheese on top of Disney’s standard “house made potato chips,” which were fresh, crunchy, salty, and perhaps most importantly, plentiful. The arugula on top basically makes this a salad and adds a leafy crunch to each bite. The ranch dressing drizzled on top helped bring the whole thing together. Each plate is made fresh to order, which goes a long way, too.
Overall, this is one of the better shareable snacks available in the Park and one I would return to time and time again if it weren’t in my job description to try everything that sounds much, much nastier.
$6 Bugs ‘n Grubs
This is Chocolate Soft Serve, Cookie Crumbs, Gummy Worms, and a Chocolate Bug in a Waffle Cone. Disney first offered the cone around the release of the live-action version of The Lion King. It has since moved on from the Anandapur Ice Cream Truck, but remains available at Trilo-Bites. The theming fits.
$5.50 Oreo Shake
The Oreo Shake was more like Oreo Soup as it was dispensed from the same soft serve machines as vanilla or chocolate ice cream. The provided paper straw doesn’t help the situation much, making it virtually impossible to suck up any of the shake. You’ll find yourself spooning up the cookies and cream glop with a spoon, which probably means you’d be better off with ice cream anyway. On the plus side, the serving is substantial and it’s finished nicely with the whipped cream, cookie dust, and cherry.
$10 Kona Hanalei Draft
We’ve seen this most recently at the Polynesian Village Resort Club Level:
The beer is juicier than your typical IPA with guava, passion fruit, and orange juices covering up any perceived bitterness of the hops. That may be why the menu doesn’t even indicate that it’s an IPA. This is the first time that I think we’ve seen this on draft at the resort.
$10 Old Elephant Foot IPA
There’s a lot of hops, pine, and citrus here with a real bitter taste. Be ready for it.
Trilo-Bites has a few picnic tables next to it. For air-conditioned seating, head over to nearby Restaurantosaurus. Picturesque seating is available at Flame Tree Barbecue.
