Foodie Tuesday: That Time I Ate My Way Through Walt Disney World
Last week, I was on vacation in Disney World with my family- my brother’s one last hurrah before he starts high school tomorrow (yikes). While most people would plan their days around what attractions and rides they want to go to, we did something a bit different: planned our days around food.
When you go to Disney World, you can add different dining plans to your reservation that help you save a bit on food. We did that for our trip, and let me tell you, I ate some of the best food I’ve ever had while on this trip. I used Foodspotting at almost every meal because I was that impressed with the quality of food I was eating. I honestly forgot that I was at a theme park and thought that I was at any five-star restaurant in any major city in this county. Really, it’s incredible how perfect everything was.
The restaurants are also really good about any food allergies or special dietary needs you might have. When making reservations, you can add any special food requests or needs you have, and either your server or the chef will come over to you and talk about it the minute you sit down. I’m allergic to tree nuts (basically everything except peanuts, which aren’t technically a nut…), and I was so impressed with how on top of the allergy every restaurant was when I was away. That’s so refreshing to see, since I’ve found myself in some scary situations.
I’m sharing just a few photos from a meal I had while on vacation at a restaurant called Flying Fish Cafe at Disney’s Boardwalk resort. This was probably one of the best meals I’ve ever had, if not the best. The food was delicious, but the chef who was there that night not only made custom food to order for me, but he hand delivered everything and was really dreamy to boot. Check out the menu [PDF] and you’ll be able to see how everyone in my family struggled on deciding what to order.
Ginger and Teriyaki “Char-crusted” Yellowfin Tuna
Epcot Bok Choy, Sesame-laced Tiny Beans, Snow and Snap Peas, Royal Trumpet Mushrooms, and Tiny Asparagus with a Lemon Grass-Kaffir Lime and Wasabi Tobiko-Butter Emulsion
This is pretty much how we ate every night, so needless to say, I’m considering an all liquid diet this week. It was so worth it, though.
