Disney’s Best Bites for May 2019
Each month the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts serve up new and delicious morsels to eager guests. Now that May is well underway, it’s time to check out Disney’s Best Bites for May 2019.
A Very Merry Unbirthday Tea Party
Beginning on May 31, A Very Merry Unbirthday Tea Party will arrive for a limited-time at the Disneyland Hotel. Guests of any age are welcome to partake in a midday tea featuring a spread of treats and sweets themed after Disney’s classic, “Alice in Wonderland”.
The lineup includes fresh salad, scones, sandwiches, desserts, and teas inspired by some of the film’s most popular characters. Guests can check out the Disneyland Resort website for more information or talk to your travel agent.
The Sand Bar Lounge will be serving up a few new items this summer such as the Spaghetti Burger. A beef patty with mozzarella cheese, sun-dried tomato spread, and arugula sandwiched between two “buns” made of fried spaghetti… wow!
Alongside the Spaghetti Burger, the Sand Bar Lounge will feature artisan pizzas and a Double B-L-T-A with crispy bacon, braised pork belly, butter lettuce, balsamic tomatoes, and creamy avocado on focaccia.
If you’re looking for something lighter, there will also be an Arugula Salad topped with a soft-poached egg.
A selection of tacos will work their way onto the menu including duck confit with caramelized onions, pork with pineapple salsa, and grilled shrimp with Sriracha aïoli.
Making your meal selection even more challenging will be the seafood ceviche, chicken drum sticks, chili-lime yuca fries, and the PBJ Burger Slider (featuring a plant-based patty, peanut butter, and blackberry jam on a toasted potato bun).
Confetti Dessert Nachos
Enjoy this sweet crunchy dish topped with whipped cream, strawberries, chocolate sauce, and sprinkles. If you’re craving the iconic churro, you can order a Churro Sundae with vanilla ice cream, wild berries, and whipped cream. Yum!
