Disneyland and Walt Disney World Share Their Best Bites for October 2019

The Disney Parks Blog has put together this month’s list of Best Bites at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World. These highlights are not always brand new, but are always delicious.


First we have a reminder of the new menu at Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill at the Disneyland Hotel. The menu, which we told you about last month, features a ton of new dishes.

For breakfast look for the Loco Moco Burrito or Thick & Fluffy Japanese Pancakes. At lunch or dinner grab the Hawaiian Platter with pork belly or chicken breast, the Tonkotsu Ramen with pork belly slices, or the Rongo Salad with marinated tofu. You’ll also find the new lunch and dinner menu at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar.


Continuing the tropical theme, a reminder of the second edition Hatbox Ghost Tiki Mug that goes on sale October 15th. As we told you this weekend, at the Disneyland Resort the mug will be available at the Disneyland Hotel Convention Center from 7am to 7pm, with the line open beginning at 5am.

Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar will also have the mugs available when it opens, served with the Grim Grinning Grog. The concoction includes coconut rum, spiced rum, pineapple juice, red passion fruit syrup, and blue curacao.

A new Hotbox Ghost Ornament and Limited Edition Hatbox Ghost Pin will will also be released that day in Disney’s Fantasia Shop starting at 7am.


At Walt Disney World, head to Trader Sam’s Tiki Terrace at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for a wristband starting at 9am to be able to purchase the mug with Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto opens at 1pm. This east coast Grim Grinning Grog is made with pineapple-mango dark rum, Bermuda black rum, blood orange, lime juice, a trio of tropical juices, and dashes of aromatic bitters.

If there are mugs remaining after the first day, wristbands will be issued at 10am and the Grotto open for business at 3pm starting October 16th.

The ornament and pin will be available at BouTiki starting at 9am on October 15th.


Staying on the east coast, there are some new menu items in Epcot. Throughout the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, Rose & Crown Pub in the United Kingdom pavilion is serving a Traditional English Breakfast Platter every Saturday from 9am to 11am. The dish includes eggs, sausage, toast, baked beans, and mushrooms.

Also keep an eye out for Frozen Mezzo Mix at Bierline in the Germany pavilion. The popular drink features Coca-Cola with a hint of Fanta Orange. Grownups can add a splash of honey and bourbon.


Heading out the International Gateway to Disney’s BoardWalk, the Flying Fish has added some new dishes to their menu. Try the Filet Mignon with asparagus and honshimeji mushrooms, Chilean Seabass with Spanish octopus and vegetable melange, or Sardinian Pasta with Maine lobeter, scallops, shrimp, and garden herbs. Finish it off with the Cocoa Beach dessert, made with vanilla custard, milk chocolate bavarois, and feuilletine crunch.


Finally, Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge has added some sweets to their menus, including a new cinnamon rolls on their breakfast menu that are topped with walnut-bourbon maple syrup and a sugar crisp.


For lunch, try the Cowboy Sundae with vanilla ice cream, macerated berries, cobbler dough bubble waffle, and a milk chocolate horse. Chocolate lovers will want to indulge in the OLLLLLLLD Fashion Chocolate Cake topped with a Mickey Macaron.
