Disney Springs Foodie News Roundup for August 2023

Disney Springs in August 2023 has new monthly flavors, new foodie events, news of a new restaurant in the works, and the end of the annual “Flavors of Florida” promotion (August 13th is the last day).

Cilantro Urban Eatery

The Cilantro Urban Eatery food truck is back at Walt Disney World on a daily basis this month, serving up a Puerto Rican menu of deliciousness. It is open 5pm-10pm Monday through Thursday, 3pm to 10:30pm Fridays, noon to 10:30pm Saturdays, and noon to 10pm on Sundays.

Earl of Sandwich

Those who like it hot will want to try the new limited time Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich. It features oven-fried chicken, Nashville hot sauce, sweet pickles, and coleslaw.

The Edison

The Mixology Sunset Dinner Series returns on August 24 and 31, featuring an elevated three-course menu and craft cocktail pairings centered on the WhistlePig brand of spirits.
