Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is undergoing a massive transformation and earlier this month, we shared some details on new dining experiences that are coming to the resort.
Centertown Market has received an expansion as well as being reimagined as an indoor street market. The new and welcoming space features open shutters, wooden light posts, awnings, and appetizing new eats. The new menu will include a mixture of family-friendly fast casual offerings along with customizable Latin and Caribbean-inspired dishes. One of the highlights of the menu is the new Island Bowl that will be available for both breakfast and dinner.
The new bowls are able to be customized with your choice of base, protein, sauce, and if you’re ordering a breakfast bowl, you can choose how you’d like your eggs cooked (scrambled, poached, or tofu scramble). The bases include choices such as red beans and rice (offered all day), home fries (for breakfast), and greens (for dinner). For the proteins options, guests can choose from rotisserie beef, bacon, chorizo, or plant-based sausage for breakfast and rotisserie beef, pork shoulder, banana leaf-wrapped fish, jerk chicken thighs, or vegan chipotle seitan for dinner. Sauce options during breakfast will include salsa verde or pico de gallo, while the dinner sauces include chimichurri, garlic ranch, or spicy pink sauce. There will be more than 30 different combinations to choose from for both breakfast and dinner.
In addition to the new Island Bowls, the breakfast menu will include classic dishes like Eggs Benedict or the All American Breakfast Platter with eggs, home fries, sausage, bacon, and toast as well as island-inspired creations such as Coconut Waffles with fresh fruit or Banana Pancakes topped with granola and pineapple chunks and served with sausage and maple syrup.
Rounding out the menu are fresh salads, Sicilian-style pizza, pasta dishes, and a variety of sandwiches and burgers providing many options that are sure to satisfy everyone in the family.
Kids will be able to enjoy some familiar favorites like Pirate Mickey Waffles and French Toast for breakfast and Chicken Breast Nuggets, Tacos, and Grilled Cheese for dinner. For the more adventurous eaters, the chefs have created some unique new offerings like the Egg Popper for breakfast; a hard-boiled egg pop with green pirate juice, roasted pineapple, and bacon and the Beef and Mushroom-blended Cheeseburger for dinner; served with “cauli” fries, orange sauce, and a mini “build-your-own” Island Bowl.
The expanded beverage island will offer fountain beverages featuring Coca-Cola® Freestyle, freshly-brewed coffee, and a variety of teas as well as draft beer, single-serve wine, and cocktails. Guests can step inside the Grab ‘n Go Market, where they’ll find specialty coffees and quick bites to-go.
Guests craving a sweet finish to top their meal off can try the Tropical Tart with key lime, mango, and passion fruit curd with Chantilly or the Chocolate Crème Tart with chocolate cake, coffee Chantilly, and caramel crispies.
The Banana Cabana pool-side bar will feature an outdoor lounge where guests can gather for tasty food along with refreshing alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The lounge was inspired by the festive culture you’d find in the Caribbean, combining a relaxed sitting area with a lively bar. Cabana-style drapes define the seating groups and re-purposed steel drums will illuminate a central communal table made from a wooden boat.
Exclusive cocktails made with premium spirits and Caribbean seafood and mainland dishes are on the menu at this poolside eatery. Libations available will include the Pink Guava Colada featuring rum, guava puree, pineapple juice, and cream of coconut and the Kraken Punch with spiced rum, blood orange sour, and pomegranate and orange juices. Caribbean beers will also be available along with a variety of craft and traditional beers and premium white and red wines on tap.
Non-alcoholic options such as drinks made with fruit juices and tropical flavors will be available as well. One of these drinks is the Tropical Paradise, a fruity blend of pineapple coconut, cinnamon, and lime dusted with nutmeg.
Centertown Market and Banana Cabana are scheduled to open in late Fall of 2018 as part of the greater reimagining of Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
