  • Looks delicious! While we are making suggestions, the Tropical Chicken Pita that used to be served at Bleachers at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort was my favorite Disney food ever, how about that recipe? Mmmmmm.

  • I don’t know where to send this suggestion, but I would love to have the recipe for the creamy onion soup at Steakhouse 55 in the Disneyland hotel. My wife and I went there the other day for restaurant week and it was wonderful.

    • I agree, Michael – that soup at Steakhouse 55 is delicious! I’ll be sure to notify our team about your suggestion. 🙂
