It was not too many months ago that Disney had just started experimenting by inviting one or two food trucks to park at Downtown Disney and augment the food selection there. Then there was a very successful Food Truck Bazaar event and the addition of four ‘official’ Disney food trucks. Well those trucks now have an official home inside the future Disney Springs shopping, dining, and entertainment complex.
Officially known as “Exposition Park,” the addition is located on the Westside between the new Starbucks and Bongo’s, and conveniently close to the restrooms, the Food Truck park offers guests places to sit and enjoy the delicious food treats in a nice garden-like setting.
The area is currently decorated for Christmas. It has soft yellow lighting that turns on a dusk, a very lush feel with the ‘Elevated train’ platform acting as a divider from the hustle of the main walk-way and the food truck park.
On the night we visited, there was even a non-Disney food truck in residence. The Yum Yum Cupcake Truck, which recently changed ownership, was there to sell some of the most delicious treat in town.
It makes me very happy to see Disney is continuing it’s support of local food trucks. I hope it will continue to support the scene by inviting back the Food Truck Bazaar for a larger event, perhaps once the holidays are over and the parking garage is 100% open.
Speaking of the parking garage, come back tomorrow when we have a larger update of changes at Downtown Disney as it completes its transformation into Disney Springs.
