Disney World recently announced a handful of fun and exciting new restaurant options that will open in 2020. This comes in addition to the new Disney World restaurants that have opened or are slated to open this year. So, we’ll go over all of the approaching options that will be available to visit in 2020.
Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill Orlando – Disney Springs
Okay, so we admit, this one is already open, but we had to include it. You can find this dining option in Disney Springs. As many people know, Wolfgang Puck has had 2 other options here with the former Wolfgang Puck Cafe and Dining Room which was located in the West Side of Disney Springs, in addition to the current Wolfgang Puck Express location in the Marketplace. His new place, however, incorporates the concept of modernizing the traditional bar and grill. The menu will feature a slew of Puck’s signature dishes and specialty cocktails. You find it directly across from Planet Hollywood and Chicken Guy! on the West Side.
Jaleo by José Andrés – Disney Springs
This is traditional Spanish cuisine from Chef José Andrés’. That’s right tapas fans, this one is for you. Enjoy a mix of traditional and contemporary Spanish cuisine options like paella hand-carved Jamon Iberico de Bellota, and wood-grilled Iberico pork. Plus, a lot of the food is cooked over an open wood fire. You’ll be able to find Jaleo on the West Side across from Splitsville.
Ample Hills Creamery – Disney Springs
Rejoice! This Boardwalk mainstay will have a new second location in Disney Springs. If you’ve ever been to the Boardwalk store, you know how good they are. Needles to say, this is arguably the best ice creamery anywhere on Disney property. As of right now, no official spot within Disney Springs has been settled on yet, although rumor has it, it might pop-up directly across from Bongo’s Cuban Cafe.
Beatrix Neighborhood Restuarant – Disney Springs
This restaurant, coffeehouse and quick pick market will showcase healthy cuisine with vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan and fresh-juice cocktails. The aim is to provide comfort food with a healthy twist. Look for Beatrix to appear in the Bongo’s Cuban Cafe building after the renovations take place, sometime in mid-to-late 2020 (hopefully). This Chicago based restaurant has been recognized as one of Eater’s List of 20 Essential Chicago Breakfast Spots. Apparently, they’re famous for serving Bulletproof Coffee, which includes coffee, butter, and “brain octane oil”. I’m sold.
Cookie Dough & Everything Sweet – Disney Springs
Let me tell you, this is one sweet food truck… And, they’re already open. If you’re in the mood for cookie dough in all of its possible forms such as cookie dough tacos, funnel cake, cones, and parfaits, then make sure to hit this place on your next visit to Disney Springs. You can find them amongst the other Disney Springs’ food truck options on the West Side facing Lake Buena Vista.
Sunshine Churros – Disney Springs
Get double the churro action with two Disney Springs locations, one in the Marketplace and one in the West Side. Enjoy a variety of gourmet churros with flavors like watermelon, salted caramel, strawberry cheesecake, fruity cereal, and cookies & cream. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous (or just really hungry), you can get anything dipped in chocolate or chocolate-hazelnut. Sounds like a no-brainer if you ask me.
City Works Eatery & Pour House – Disney Springs
Soon to be located next to the NBA Experience (old Disney Quest building), this restaurant jumps on the ever-growing trend of serving craft beer options galore with pub-like cuisine to go along with it. You can expect 90+ local, regional, and global craft beers on tap with a list that is continually updated. Spanning an impressive 8,632 square feet of indoor and outdoor seating, a sizeable gift shop, lots of HDTVs, a hi-tech sound system and one very large 165-inch television for your big game fix. Plus, there will be 3 full-service bars to choose from. This place is big. Can you say “game day“?
New Unnamed Disney World Restaurant – Epcot
Apparently, there is a new, yet-to-be-named Disney World restaurant that will be next to Mission: Space in Epcot. The expected opening date was supposed to be in 2019 but according to the people involved with the project, this will be unlikely. This mystery restaurant will serve “internationally-inspired cuisine“, a selection of 1,000 wines and a large selection of craft beers. It will also be “space-themed” to coincide with Mission: Space.
