New Menu Items Coming to Downtown Disney Food Trucks

posted on February 24th, 2015 by Rachel Brent, Food & Beverage Marketing Communications Coordinator


The fleet of Disney Food Trucks may have settled into their new home, Exposition Park at Downtown Disney West Side, but their menus continue to evolve.

Superstar Catering, the food truck inspired by Disney’s Hollywood Studios, is getting a brand-new menu. Look for a pork shank served with Gruyere macaroni and cheese and a sausage and caramelized onion flatbread. My favorite on the menu? ‘A Taste of Hollywood Studios,’ which features samplings of the BLT Soup from Sci-Fi Dine-In Restaurant and the Famous Cobb Salad and mini grapefruit cake from The Hollywood Brown Derby.

Game Day Chicken and Waffles

On the Fantasy Fare food truck, look for Game Day Chicken and Waffles — Buffalo-style chicken with Sriracha maple and blue cheese sauce, served with cornbread waffles. Also new to the lineup: sweet potato puffs topped with marshmallow cream and candied pecans; these tasty bites are not to be missed. In addition to these goodies, the classic hand-dipped corndog and grilled ham and cheese sandwiches are now served with waffle fries.

Have you visited the Disney Food Trucks at Exposition Park yet? Which is your favorite? Tell us in the comments below.

Guess who is turning 15 years old? Well, ESPN personalities Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic are both a little older than that, but their widely popular radio show is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year at Walt Disney World Resort and guests can celebrate with them.

The “Mike & Mike” show which airs nationally on ESPN2, ESPN Radio and ESPNRadio.com, will broadcast live from the Waterside Stage at Downtown Disney Marketplace on Friday, March 6 from 6 a.m.- 10 a.m. Guests are invited to join the festivities and be a part of the live audience.

Celebrate Mike & Mike Turning 15 at Disney

There will be some special surprises in store and seating is limited, so it’s probably best to arrive by 5 a.m. There will be a check in location between World of Disney store and the Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop. Parking is available in the Hess Station parking lot across from the Marketplace. Starbucks at Downtown Disney will be open early for breakfast.

If you can’t make it out here that morning, you can always catch the Mike & Mike show on ESPN Radio, ESPNRadio.com, the ESPN Radio mobile app and on ESPN2 from Monday through Friday at 6 am ET. Follow the 15th anniversary broadcast on Twitter at #MM15 and #ESPNatDisney.

Have you noticed this new sign at the attraction’s entrance? It details how many individuals fit inside on Doombuggy. But what is the missing word here? You tell us. We’ll update the post with the correct answer later today!
