Our mouths are watering just looking at the Open-Faced Thanksgiving Turkey Sandwich from Restaurantosaurus in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Any Disney Guest knows that Disney World doesn’t do anything halfway, particularly food, so we weren’t surprised to learn that this is not your average turkey sandwich! The grilled multigrain bread, roasted garlic mayonnaise, cornbread stuffing waffle, sliced smoked turkey breast, herb gravy, cranberry sauce, and fried sage leaves will all combine for an incredible burst of flavor. This sandwich is available after November 25th!
At the Satu’li Canteen in the Animal Kingdom, Disney visitors who don’t like sandwiches but still want turkey can enjoy the hearty Thanksgiving Bowl (which features cornbread stuffing, sliced roasted turkey, , gravy, and slaw). We’re very curious to taste the cranberry boba pearls. November 25th is the ‘opening day’ for this delicious entree, too! For dessert, you can’t go wrong with the Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse or the Peppermint Cream Cheese Mousse.
Any repeat Disney visitors know that Tiffins Restaurant is the place to be for fancy, indulgent meals at Walt Disney World. Judging by the estimated offerings, Tiffins will outdo itself once again this holiday season! This restaurant’s Thanksgiving Plate upgrades the typical Thanksgiving fare with a “turkey roulade, fine-herbs whipped potatoes, maple-glazed carrots, sweet potato pave, wild mushrooms, green bean casserole, cornbread dressing, cranberry gel, and turkey gravy”. Roasted squash soup (topped with a ginger-pear chutney) and an apple pie cheesecake will round out the menu, but one highlight that you’ll definitely want to try is the Horchata Mousse Snow Globe, because luxury desserts is where Tiffins really shines! This globe contains “golden coffee crémeux, gingerbread sable cookie, coriander chantilly, elderflower meringue, bourbon caramel, and candied pecans. Unfortunately, this particular dessert won’t be available until Christmas Day, but it’ll be worth the wait!
In Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the ABC Commissary will be the number one destination for sugar cookie treats. The Sugar Cookie Snowman (which is complemented by “white chocolate sugar cookie mousse” and “whipped lemon curd”. The Santa’s Belt Cookie also looks delightfully Christmassy, and the whoopie pue from the Backlot Express and Trolley Car Café will definitely be perfect for anyone who has a fondness for red cake.
Christmastime and the holiday season wouldn’t be complete without hot cocoa, and the ABC Commissary, Backlot Express, Rosie’s All-American Café, and PizzeRizzo in Hollywood Studios are all offering Frozen Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate! Adults can also get this drink with black cherry bourbon.
If you’re on the go in Hollywood Studios, but you want a holiday treat that’s easy to transport, then try the Holiday Lunch Box Tart from Woody’s Lunch Box! This is an apple-pie-filled tart decorated with cinnamon frosting and sprinkles.
In Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park, you can find some great ice cream desserts at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies. The Christmas Cookie Sundae will be a wonderful way to mix cookies with creaminess, and so will the Christmas Cookie Milkshake!
Disney Springs is not technically a Disney Park, but you’ll still want to pay a visit there to try out the incredible desserts at Amorette’s Patisserie. A White Chocolate Peppermint Éclair with White Chocolate and Peppermint Mousse, Santa Mickey and Holiday Mickey Mousse Mini Dome Cakes, and the Holiday Parfait (which contains “bourbon white chocolate mousse, cranberry cherry panna cotta, maple chocolate ganache, and chocolate chiffon cake” will definitely be worth trying.
If you like eggnog, AristoCrêpes will probably be on your list; the Santa Hot Crêpe is paired with an eggnog custard that will give you every holiday warm fuzzy that you require! And any Canadians or fans of EPCOT’s Canada in the World Showcase will want to try the special Gobbler Poutine from The Daily Poutine, which is basically turkey, gravy, “cranberry chutney, and cheese curds”. This might be an acquired taste, but many people will find it to be wonderful comfort food!
The Ganachery is a no-brainer when it comes to holiday destinations in Walt Disney World, because this establishment specifically specializes in decorative chocolate. The “Olaf Hot Cocoa Surprise” and “Chocolate Christmas Cottage” sound particularly impressive.
While Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar might not initially come to mind when Disney Guests think of holidays or Christmas, this eatery might actually become many Disney Guests’ favorite for the holidays! Unexpected entrees like the venison slider or deviled eggs (which are accompanied by tobiko and shrimp) still manage to be festive, but in a more old English rustic kind of way. The dark horse who will steal the show, though, is most likely going to be the ham and brie flatbread. With ham, brie cheese, “pomegranate seeds, granny smith apples, apple vinaigrette, and watercress”, it’s bound to stand out.
If these entrees and desserts are already making you hungry, be sure to check the details here to ensure that the item you want is available, because most of them are available starting November 5th, but some won’t be up for grabs until closer to Christmas Day. Now all that’s left to do is grab your plate and fork!
