A new month means that there are brand new Best Bites to try all over the Walt Disney World Resort and there are quite a few awesome new dishes including details on a new brunch option at Disney Springs.
Last month, we told you about the new Rise & Shine Southern Brunch that’s coming to Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning on June 24. On the “Lil’ Sumthins” menu, guests will find cheddar drop biscuits served with either blackberry fig jam or sawmill gravy. There are also fresh, house-made doughnuts; either Bacon & Pecan Doughnuts drizzled with caramel or Rise N’ Shine sugar doughnuts served with spiced cane syrup and seasonal fruit.
Additional menu items include the Hallelujah Biscuit consisting of an open-faced big biscuit topped with Chef Art’s famous fried chicken, two fried eggs, pimento cheese, and pecan-smoked bacon all smothered in sawmill gravy. For your entrée, try the Sunrise Burger topped with pecan-smoked bacon, a fried egg, white cheddar, and tomato-bacon jam, or the Country Benedict; an open-faced big biscuit with griddled country ham, two poached eggs, and house-made hollandaise. There is even a Rise & Shine cocktail menu with a wide selection of Bloody Marys, sangria, and more; the highlight on the drink menu is the Princess Mimosa with bubbly and freshly-squeezed Florida orange juice.

Rix Sports Bar & Grill recently opened over at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort and they offer a distinctive twist on classic bar food, handcrafted cocktails, and local draft beers. In addition to favorites such as wings and nachos, the starter menu features Lobster Sliders with fresh lobster salad on Parker House rolls and Veggie Lettuce Wraps with sautéed peppers, onions, squash, zucchini, and an Asian sesame marinade. There are also Watchos; a basket of crispy waffle fries that are served with queso blanco, bacon, and scallions.
One of the entrée highlights is the tempting Bacon Cheeseburger topped with crispy onion straws, peppered thick-cut bacon, tomato, lettuce, and your choice of cheese. You’ll also find a Short Rib Chili, Rix Salad (with an artisanal blend of greens tossed in an orange-honey vinaigrette with beets, tomato, cucumber, and goat cheese), a BBQ Ranch Burger, and 15-Spice BBQ Ribs. Guests are encouraged to make a reservation for this new restaurant; reservations can be made online or by calling (407) WDW-DINE.
The June Hot Dog of the Month at Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom is the Philly Cheese Steak Hot Diggity Dog topped with roast beef, sautéed peppers and onions, and cheese sauce. This month’s Flatbread of the Month at Pinocchio Village Haus is the Beef & Bleu Flatbread with bleu cheese, onions, and beef brisket with Alfredo sauce and brushed with a garlic butter.
On top of all the sweet baked breakfast goods, Disney’s BoardWalk has some new savory pastry turnovers at the BoardWalk Bakery. The Meat Lovers Pastry Turnover is filled with scrambled eggs, ham, pork sausage, jalapeños, and crème fraiche and the Vegetarian Pastry Turnover with scrambled eggs, spinach, basil, piquillo peppers, and crème fraîche.
Two restaurants at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge have new items to share as well. First, at Artist Point, two new menu items have joined this signature dining location – the Wild Halibut Cioppino serves two and comes with clams, mussels, bay scallops, Carolina gold rice, pigeon peas, and baby fennel. The second dish is the Farm Egg Pappardelle with duck ragoût, English peas, dandelion greens, and aged cow’s milk cheese.
And for dessert, head over to the Roaring Fork for the new Chocolate Caramel Mousse.
The Oasis Bar & Grill at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort has some new coffee beverages along with new Kalua Pork Sliders. The Seven Seas Salty Caramel cold brew has vodka, coffee liqueur, and a caramel garnish or you can try an Island Java-rita; a cold brew coffee margarita with premium tequila, orange liqueur, and flavors of mango, guava, and ginger. Then there’s the Tahitian Vanilla cold brew with Irish whiskey, Irish cream, vanilla, and whipped cream pairs well with Malasadas; Portuguese doughnuts served with passion fruit curd.
