Jaleo by José Andrés Adds New Tapas, Prix Fixe Courses, & More at Disney Springs

We’ve made no secret in the past of our love for Jaleo by José Andrés at Disney Springs, so it makes us very happy to see that Chef José has been hard at work to add more delicious offerings to the menu. There’s a couple of new prix fixe courses along with new tapas in a few different categories, so we’ve run down the menu to see what’s new!

One of the big changes at Jaleo is the addition of three new prix fixe courses. First and foremost is the Jaleo Experience, a tailored menu featuring “A tasting of the classic and traditional tapas in addition to some original favorites” for $95 per person. Additionally, two prix fixe drink courses include a Sherry Tasting for $25 and a “Spanish Sips” menu for $40, which includes “specially selected Spanish wines and beverages to pair with your Jaleo Experience menu.”

The ¡Buen Provecho! menu has been cut down from six choices to five, eliminating the 24-month cured serrano ham. But fear not, for that has moved to the Cured Meats section with two other new items:

  • Spreadable cured sausage from Mallorca made with iberico pork and Spanish pimentón served with honeycomb and toasted bread—$15
  • 48-month cured ham from the legendary free range, acorn-fed, black-footed pigs of Spain, hand carved—$30
