It’s the time of year when food takes center stage, with Thanksgiving right around the corner and the holidays shortly following. Downtown Disney has taken note, and has given us foodies some more good news and something to look forward to: food trucks! There are no specific dates set yet for when the trucks will make their first appearances, just that they will debut sometime in early November.
So far we know that there will be four trucks showcasing various meals from around the world, so guests can experience international dishes without all the traveling. The first truck, “Enchanted Fare,” will serve a wide variety of foods from Disney parks around the globe, such as Croque Monsieur, Glass Noodle Salad, as well as Hand-Dipped Corn Dogs.

“The World Showcase of Flavors,” the second truck, will have foods available from the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival such as Grass-Fed Beef Sliders, Peirogies with Kielbasa, and Lobster Rolls.

The third truck, “Superstar Catering,” will specifically feature meatball specials (my favorite) such as Lamb Meatball Flatbread.
Finally, “Namaste Café” will showcase a variety of flavors and spices with dishes such as Butter Chicken and Slow-Cooked Beef Short Ribs (I’m getting hungry just writing this).

My mouth is watering just thinking about all of these new meals, and I’m particularly liking the Corn Dogs and Lamb Meatball Flatbread. Right now it sounds like the trucks will all be located on the Westside near House of Blues and Cirque Du Soleil. Should add some much needed dining options as crowds shift away from Pleasure Island during construction.
Which dishes are you looking forward to trying?
