Remember I told you a few weeks ago about how to do Disney on Diet? A trip to the land of fun and sun does not have to have the same effect on your waistline as an F-5 tornado bearing down on a 100-year old barn. Yep, there are ways to have fun and be diet-conscious. But…
That is NOT what this post is about. This is about the pendulum swinging in exactly the opposite direction. We’re gonna talk all about the food that, well, just talking about, will make you bust out of your britches.
Now, because I do try to watch my diet most of the time, I’m not an expert in the fare that’s typically a bit higher in calories. So I had to rely on my friend, Robin Reeve of The Walt Disney World Dads for his take on the gastrointestinal goodness.
1. Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn And Tavern: Looking for some real grub? Well better stop by Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Tavern in Frontierland at The Magic Kingdom. If you’re serious about throwing caution to the wind, Robin says this is the place with the best burgers, fries and, (you might want to loosen your belt for this) cheese sauce!
2. Restaurantosaurus. Well, you already know how I feel about Animal Kingdom Theme Park but typically I’m too busy to with the sights to give much thought to the food. That means I’m usually grabbing a monster turkey leg as I head out. But Robin maintains Restarantosaurus runs neck and neck with Pecos Bill and he has yet to steer me wrong. Hot dogs, Double Bacon Burgers and barbeque sauce! Sounds like one not to be missed next time.
3. The Plaza: According to Robin, this is probably a place you know, and may have walked by without even knowing it. But next time pop in for hearty portions of burgers and fries, deli-style sandwiches and ice cream are all a part of the magic. One of Robin’s fav’s? The Philly Cheesesteak sandwich which he says is a must-have.
4. Casey’s Corner: I love this place and so does Robin. This Victorian style house smack in the middle of Main Street, USA in the Magic Kingdom is one big nod to our national pastime. And of course, what else would you expect to find at a ball park? Hot dogs! Choose from Chicago style, Barbeque slaw or just corn dog nuggets if you’re not in the mood for a big meal. Very reasonably priced too!
5. Tusker House: I have passed by this place many times on my travels through Animal Kingdom Theme Park but Robin says if there was a palace of man food, this might be it. This buffet-style restaurant features carving stations, salads, stews and wonderful desserts. There are also options for those with a less adventurous palate.
So there you go, a handful of places to try if you want to go the man-food route.
Yo! Nice to meet you! You can find out more about me on my blog, Good Enough Mother.
