It’s finally and officially Fall, even if we’ve been celebrating Halloween since August.
Disney Springs has added some new WonderFall Flavors seasonal menu items to multiple locations here and we’ve been excited to try them all. Personally, Hangar Bar is one of my favorite spots to relax at Disney Springs, so I couldn’t wait to try the newest additions to their menus: The Charcuterie Pretzel and Brody’s Deep Fried Brats and Sauerkraut. Yum!
Air Pirate’s Cargo Loaded Pretzel – $22
The Charcuterie Pretzel is life-changing. Yes, that sounds extreme, but this is probably the greatest thing I’ve ever had from Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar. This is basically the giant Air Pirate’s pretzel, but upgraded. Big time. There is prosciutto, sausage, pepperoni, cheese, and pickles, all nestled into the pretzel, ready to be devoured. I’m actually drooling as I write this just thinking about it. The pickles are so flavorful, and are the same ones served on the Snakebite Sliders. Everything had a bit of a kick to it, but not necessarily spicy. The thick chunks of pepperoni were incredible, as were the sausage pieces. The prosciutto was pretty perfect, too.
It’s pretty easy to get distracted by all the meats and cheeses, but don’t forget you’ve got a thick, fluffy pretzel to devour, too.
It’s served with a side of German mustard and beer cheese, but the beer cheese gets our vote for best dip. I could honestly ramble on and on about this Charcuterie pretzel, because it’s that good.
This is an absolutely must! It’s perfect for sharing over a few drinks in a relaxed, themed atmosphere.
Brody’s Fried Brats and Sauerkraut – $13
When we saw Brody’s Deep Fried Brats and Sauerkraut, we were intrigued and slightly concerned. The Cast Member described it as sausage and sauerkraut rolled into a ball and deep fried. He added that it might sound strange, but it’s delicious, so we decided we’d give it a try, too.
They look a little bit like oversized hush puppies served with mustard and a side of pickled vegetables.
We cut one in half to investigate, and even if it doesn’t look visually appealing, it smelled delicious. After one bite, we were convinced this was a wise decision. The mustard was a little overpowering to the flavor, though. The sauerkraut flavor didn’t really stand out to me as much as I expected, which was actually nice. The crispy outside and flavorful brat inside was a delicious combination.
If you’re making a trip to Disney Springs, make some time to visit the Hangar Bar. The Fried Brats might not be for everyone, but they’re really tasty. The Pretzel Charcuterie is a must, though. It’s unfortunate to think this is only a seasonal offering, so we’ll be crossing our fingers that it stays forever. Happy Fall!
