Disney Parks Blog Readers Feast at Downtown Disney Food Truck Meet-Up

posted on January 10th, 2014 by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks

We kicked off another year of Disney Parks Blog meet-ups with a celebration of the new food trucks at Downtown Disney at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Chef James began the event with a great explanation of the different flavors available at the food trucks parked at Downtown Disney West Side near Cirque du Soleil and House of Blues.

And of course, after hearing about the food, Disney Parks Blog readers experienced each of the food trucks – tasting the new dishes and spending time with Chef James.

The delicious bites included Lobster Rolls, Tandori Spiced Shrimp, and Lamb Meatball Flatbread – all available at the trucks during the year. A favorite was the bright-red Fantasy Fare truck, “Delightful Dishes from Disney’s Magic Kingdoms Around the World,” that brings the legendary hand-dipped corn dogs of Disneyland Resort to the East Coast.

Readers also enjoyed the World Showcase of Flavors truck, “The Best of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival,” offering fest favorites. Pam has more details on what you’ll be able to enjoy at the food trucks this year.

Thank you to everyone who attended our first Disney Parks Blog meet-up of 2014. As always, it was nice meet new readers and spend time with blog friends again.

Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for information about our next meet-up opportunity.

I am a daily Disney Parks Blog reader, and I would love to be invited to attend the Disney Parks Blog reader events. Is there a certain place to sign up for that, or does Disney pick randomly?

Hi Natalie, our meet-ups are popular and fill up quickly. It’s best to keep an eye on the blog for these announcements during the year. And you can also follow us on Twitter (@WaltDisneyWorld, @Disneyland and @DisneyParks) to be notified of meet-ups. Thanks.

Do you happen to know if any of the trucks accept the dining plan?


Thomas Smith on January 11th, 2014 at 5:39 pm

Food Truck selections are one quick-service entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan. Thank you, Mary.

I’m curious about gluten-free options. How do I obtain this information? The aromas coming from these trucks is so inviting. Wondering if there’s anything there I can eat. Thanks!
