Steakhouse 71 is named so in homage to 1971, the year that Walt Disney World opened. The resort is celebrating its 50th anniversary on October 1. The concept art shows the new look for the venue, leaning heavily into the 1970s decor style.

The Citrus Grove Cocktail (Italian bitter, green herbal liqueur, citrus juices, simple syrup, and orange bitters) references the original orange groves that stood on the land that would become Walt Disney World.

There will also be the Steakhouse 71 Vodka Gimlet (vodka, green herbal liqueur, herbal blend, lime juice, simple syrup, and Minute Maid Premium Lemonade), with a “Lily pad garnish in honor of Lillian Disney.”

Oh heck yeah, the Wave’s “Bacon and Eggs” and Cheese Grits survive! Great news!

1) I miss The Wave already. Went in May. The Wave was our best meal by far (other meals were Brown Derby, Jaleo by Jose Andres, and Sanaa).

2) Is that a steakhouse or the Admiral’s Club at Orlando International Airport?

3) Maybe a lot of breakfast places serve hard liqour and I never noticed (upon reflection, I suppose places do do bloody marys), but can you imagine a parent downing 3 Maker’s Mark coffees then lugging 4 kids around Magic Kingdom? Hooooooo boy.

Happy to see Yorkshire Pudding on the menu – the last time I had it at Disney was when it was part of the Sunday Roast entree at Rose & Crown (alas, no more). Might try to get this place for our dinner on 10/1 if I’m still unsuccessful getting Cinderella’s Royal Table by then.
