Has it really been 25 years since Mount Mayday rose out of the sandy soil at Walt Disney World Resort, creating all-new ways to cool off in the Florida sun, from a lazy river to a reef full of tropical fishes and the crazy Humunga Kowabunga water slide?
Believe it or not, we’re celebrating on June 1 with a party all day – a DJ on the Clock Tower, a free cupcake (vanilla with blue icing) with the purchase of an adult entrée at Typhoon Tilly’s or Leaning Palms, and the Baybreeze, a specialty beverage with cranberry juice, pineapple juice and vodka just for grown-ups ($3.50). Let’s Go Slurpin’ bar also will feature its own anniversary cocktail, the Blue Hawaiian, only available on June 1.
Forget dogs and burgers and try the new chicken and waffle sandwich, made with a crispy fried chicken breast topped with peppery arugula, mild Asiago cheese and honey aioli. If you prefer your waffles sweet, try the chocolate chip waffle with fresh fruit sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Both waffles will be available at Lowtide Lou’s and are only on the menu ‘til Aug. 1.
Also new are two salads getting great reviews from guests. The Shrimp Wrecked Salad at the Snack Shack location features mixed greens, feta cheese, and dried cranberries, cherries and blueberries tossed in a raspberry vinaigrette and topped with strawberries and shrimp. Tropical Chicken Salad at Leaning Palms has mixed greens, Parmesan cheese, cherry tomatoes, dried cranberries, cucumbers, mandarin oranges and grilled chicken with raspberry vinaigrette.
Throw on your swimsuit and head out for a day of fun!
