Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs Reveals Limited Menu for Reopening on May 20

With Disney Springs reopening to the public beginning tomorrow, at least one restaurant won’t be offering its full menu as it once again welcomes guests.

Frontera Cocina, Rick Bayless’ Mexican restaurant located in Town Center, will be serving a limited menu upon reopening, with no more than five different options in any food category.


The appetizer choices are reduced to chips with either salsa or one of two guacamoles, Chipotle Chicken Flautas, and Queso Fundido. Only one salad is being offered, with optional add-ons available for an additional cost. (Though in all fairness, the restaurant typically has only two salads on the menu.) The taco menu remains unchanged from its standard version.

Most notably, the items from the restaurant’s “Taste of Oaxaca” menu will not be available, nor will the Cochinita Pibil entree or Queso Añejo Mashed Potatoes side dish. On the dessert side, guests can still enjoy Cuatro Leches, though the remaining desserts have been replaced with soft serve ice cream, in Mexican vanilla (normally only available as a kids’ dessert), or Ancho Chile Chocolate.

Of course, if you want to toast the return of Disney Springs with an alcoholic libation, there’s no shortage of choices, with varieties of magaritas, tequila, sangria, cocktails, mezcal, wine and beer.

As with all restaurants currently reopening as part of Phase 1, all indoor seating is limited to 25% capacity. All other guests must be seated outdoors, with tables having at least 6 feet of space in between. For parties of four or more, reservations are now available on OpenTable.

With the state of Florida moving to a full Phase 1 opening yesterday with 50% capacity now will Disney Springs also be at 50% for restaurants and retail shops?
