Nestled beneath the shade of towering trees at Disney’s newest theme park – Animal Kingdom – is Flame Tree Barbecue, a Disney fan favorite when it comes to quick service meals in the parks.
You can find FTBBQ on Discovery Island (think: the Main Street USA of Animal Kingdom) and on the way to Dinoland USA. The entire eatery is colorful with a wild, animal theme. It’s a sensory overload, if you ask me. Seating is all outdoors, with some tables under cover.
Today we welcome back my hubby Brett to give us his review of San Angel Inn inside the Mexico pavilion at Epcot.
Take it away, Brett!
One of the greatest places to visit at Epcot’s World Showcase is the Mexico pavilion. Compared to the other countries there is so much more to explore. You can take a ride on the Gran Fiesta Tour starring the Three Caballeros, buy goods in the marketplace and for the older folks in your party they can step off to the side and enjoy La Cava del Tequila where they can taste Mexican tequila and learn its history. One of the great treasures that we discovered on our last trip was the San Angel Inn.
The restaurant overlooks the inside pyramid and the boats that are taking the ride through the Fiesta Tour. A major plus is that we were able to get a reservation the day we dined, which as most people know can be a challenge at the restaurants at Disney World. One downfall is that anyone in your party that is hard of sight will have issues with the low lighting. I came in expecting the usual fare of tacos, burritos and enchiladas. What I came to find out is that Disney and their chefs know how to make Mexican food come to life!
Who doesn’t love the classic movie of Disney’s “Lady and the Tramp,” a love story of an elitist cocker spaniel who falls for a mutt from the other side of the tracks?
The movie’s classic romantic scene behind an Italian restaurant is recreated on Main Street USA at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Tony’s Town Square Restaurant pays homage to the era of the movie, the cuisine and even those playful puppies who are so in love.
Let’s take a closer look inside one of the Disney parks’ sit-down spots that is fun for the whole family…
