Ah, Disney Springs. Can we say enough good things about you? Or should we just let our jerseys, foam fingers, and fan club do the talking? In all seriousness though, I feel like I’m eternally talking about how much I love the new shopping, and dining options that the re-do on Disney Springs has brought to Walt Disney World (plus, how easy on the eyes the actual Springs themselves are). In the words of Buddy the Elf, ‘I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!’. Sure this love might be for a shopping complex, but that’s neither here nor there. Today, we’re talking about the five things you need to make sure you eat at Disney Springs on your trip, because we’re hard hitting, important journalists. But really – you have to eat, so you might as well eat good food. We’ve selfless taken the hit and eaten our way through Disney Springs, to bring you our top five list (someone had to do it).
1. Sticky Ribs, Morimoto Asia
So here’s the thing, being from Texas, I’m a rib expert. But I have never tasted anything as glorious, or as different, as a life-giving, as these sticky ribs from Morimoto Asia. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re covered in a Hoisin Chili sauce, maybe it’s the fact that Walt himself seemed to have blessed them from the other side – I’m not here to talk specifics. All I know is that your trip to Disney Springs won’t be complete without trying them. You can order them from either the Morimoto Asia Street Eats walk up stand, or a table inside the restaurant.
2. Vanilla Gelato Bourbon Bacon Milkshake, D-Luxe Burgers
Have you hopped on the adult milkshake bandwagon yet? Come, join our bandwagon! Let me repeat – we have ADULT MILKSHAKES. We genuinely enjoyed everything we tried at D-Luxe Burgers, especially considering the super reasonable price points, and great atmosphere, but these milkshakes were something special.
3. Filet Mignon Sliders, The Boathouse
This makes our list because it’s not only delicious, but because at $12 for two good sized sliders and fries, you’re paying quick service prices, at a signature restaurant. The Boathouse is currently one of our favorite Disney restaurants in terms of theming, service, and excellent bar drinks. The food is great, and you should eat here – this is a great option for making this restaurant affordable. We love the fact that this restaurant has two bars (one inside, and a Dockside bar for nice weather), so we can walk in for a quick bit without a reservation almost whenever.
4. The Dark Chocolate Cupcake, Sprinkles
There is no cake, in the world, more delicious than Sprinkles Cupcakes. That’s not just my opinion, which I get to have in a very biased manner, since I run this blog, but pure fact. Sprinkles Cupcakes are THE BEST. They even have a catchy theme song, and an ATM. (A CUPCAKE ATM. WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE.) But don’t take our word for it – try it yourselves.
5. The Holiday Sandwich, Earl Of Sandwich
Did you really think we would make it through a list about Disney Springs without mentioning Earl of Sandwich? I could write sonnets about the Holiday Sandwich, and what it has meant to my life, but I think that it might come off as creepy, and that you would be signing me up for support groups.
We have expressed our love for the new Disney Springs many, MANY times on this blog, and we hope that this list will help you narrow down where you want to spend your valuable (eating) time.
