Planning your 2024 Disney World trip?
Next year is going to bring a TON of new experiences around the parks, hotels, and maybe most importantly, FOOD!! So let’s talk about some of the spots you’ll have to try in Disney World in 2024!
The Cake Bake Shop by Gwendolyn Rogers
At the Cake Bake Shop, guests will be able to enjoy both savory items and delicious desserts, as well as an afternoon tea service in “a whimsical atmosphere that complements the magic of the idyllic charm of Disney’s BoardWalk.”
Blue Ribbon Corn Dogs
Next up for you corn dog lovers, the Blue Ribbon Corn Dogs stand is coming to Disney’s BoardWalk. They already run a stand at Downtown Disney in Disneyland Resort, but now they’ll be making their way to the East Coast.
While you will generally find a “regular” corn dog on the menu, the really exciting thing here is Blue Ribbon’s constantly rotating menu of unique corn dog creations. The Disney World menu hasn’t been released yet, but in Disneyland, we’ve seen things like the Mexican Street Corn Dog, a Christmas Corn Dog, and even a Golden Dragon Corn Dog!
An official opening date hasn’t been released yet, but it is set to open in 2023, meaning by 2024 there could be a whole new world of corn dog creations for you to try!
Shiki-Sai: Sushi Izakaya
A NEW RESTAURANT that you can enjoy in 2024 opened on August 15th in EPCOT’s Japan pavilion! Shiki-Sai: Sushi Izakaya! The menu features “Japanese delights like sushi and teppan items,” plus an open sushi bar and grill.
Sushi fans can enjoy the Kobore Sushi, Tokyo Negi Roll, and Funamori. Not only that, but you can enjoy Japanese Izakaya, a type of casual pub-style restaurant that puts an emphasis on drinks and conversations with friends.
But the unique thing that sets this restaurant apart is that each month it will honor a different Japanese seasonal festival. Sometimes that’ll be with special menu items or unique decor. And a cultural representative will be present during your meal to guide you through the experience. Plus, the restaurant will feature fireworks views. (Shiki-Sai is located in the Japan Pavilion, on the second floor — above the Mitsukoshi Department Store (where Tokyo Dining was previously located).
Quincy, Emma, and Breedlove reviewed this new spot, and you can watch their video right here!
EET by Maneet Chauhan
Another new restaurant set to open in 2023 is called EET by Maneet Chauhan. The restaurant is from Food Network star and James Beard Award-winning chef Maneet Chauhan, as well as her husband Vivek Deora.
The restaurant will bring Indian cuisine to Disney Springs in a “modern, fun Indian-inspired concept.” You can find it next to Earl of Sandwich in Disney Springs!
So what can you expect to grab at this quick-service restaurant? Check out the full lunch and dinner menu below!
The menu has plenty of authentic Indian cuisine and shareable dishes, like the eet Bread Service with Pimento Whipped Paneer and the Tandoori Chicken Poutine. Here’s a peek at some of the salads, bread, and pizza available as well!
You can also build your own bowl! Fill it with rice and a kebab, or start with some fresh salad greens with a tikka sauce. We love all the options here!
Finally, you can finish your meal with a sweet dessert, like the Chocolate and Strawberry Naan or the Gulab Jamun Cheesecake.
Of course, we can’t forget about the drink menu. We spy some intriguing options!
As you can see, the pricing for this restaurant is pretty reasonable. Most items on the menu range from $12-$18. It’s not the cheapest spot for a bite to eat in Disney Springs, but it’s definitely not the most expensive!
Summer House on the Lake
Summer House on the Lake is set to open in Disney Springs sometime in 2023 and will feature a “California-inspired menu with simple ingredients sourced from local grower partnerships and sustainable products.” We don’t know exactly when this restaurant will be opening yet, but we’re expecting it will be busy.
We’ve had a sneak peek at some of the menu items like the Shaved Brussels Salad, Wilshire Blvd Cobb Salad, Costa Mesa Salad, Ahi Tuna Tostadas, and cookies. We can’t wait to check it all out!
