During the month of October, Downtown Disney will be hosting “Foodtopia,” an event that will showcase the myriad of dining choices for the Disney Foodies out there. From the roasted chicken at Bongo’s Cuban Cafe, to the shrimp and grits and the House of Blues, to the milk-braised pork shoulder with garlic smashed potatoes, foodies will be able to try them all.
From October 1st – 31st, the Foodtopia event will feature seven Downtown Disney restaurants, each restaurant will be serving a three-course dinner for $30, with a $60 option at Fulton’s Crab House (tax and gratuity extra). The seven restaurants featured are Bongos Cuban Cafe, House of Blues, Paradiso 37, Planet Hollywood, Portobello, Splitsville Luxury Lanes, and Wolfgang Puck Cafe.
During October, Foodtopia will be held every day of the week between 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. But don’t head over without advance planning! You must make a reservation and payment at least 48 hours in advance for this event. Beginning September 28th, you can call 1-407-WDW-DINE to make reservations. And don’t wait — space is limited for this event.
Although Foodtopia cannot be combined with other promotions, you can combine Foodtopia and Cirque Du Soleil tickets! If you make a Foodtopia reservation, you will receive a 20% discount on the Cirque Du Soleil “La Nouba” tickets for everyone in your party.
Three courses and a non-alcoholic beverage for $30 — What a bargain! But what is included in these fabulous dinners? As an example, at the Wolfgang Puck Café, you can start with garlic and white bean hummus, a Caesar salad or butternut squash soup. Entrees include pesto chicken, crispy pork loin or spaghetti bolognese. Desserts feature key lime pie, carrot cake or a brownie sundae. Paradiso 37 is offering blackened mahi sliders, a hearty beef burrito or chicken enchiladas paired with a starter and dessert. At Planet Hollywood, their Celebrity BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger is on tap for an entrée, or lasagna or their Southwest Salad. Splitsville lets you choose from eight appetizers and ten entrées, with a brownie and ice cream for dessert. And that $60 menu at Fulton’s Crab House? It includes either shrimp cocktail, steamed clams and mussels or jumbo lump crab cake to start; a whole Rhode Island lobster, cioppino or filet mignon for an entrée, and a Tollhouse Cookie sundae, key lime pie or root beer float for dessert. .
