New dishes are coming to three Walt Disney World Resort hotel restaurants. On October 11, new items will arrive at Geyser Point Bar & Grill at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Three Bridges Bar and Grill at Villa del Lago at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, and Banana Cabana at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
Geyser Point Bar & Grill
Let’s take a trip on the wild side over to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge where you’ll find Geyser Point Bar & Grill nestled pool and lakeside. The iconic Bison Burger is always still available to indulge in, but the culinary team has created some additional plates for the lineup, including three new plant-based bites. Not to mention, all of the food offerings are available on mobile order.
First up, the Crispy ‘Peking’ Ribs. This dish is tossed in a tasty peking sauce with cashews. If wings are more your thing, the Geyser Chicken Wings are now available in two new flavors – Thai Chili or Sriracha Buffalo. But don’t worry, if you love the Teriyaki, it’s still available too!
The Charcuterie Flatbread is topped with salami, brisket, chorizo, bacon, and smoked gouda beer cheese. The new Turkey BLT Sandwich is not your average BLT. It combines house-smoked black pepper turkey, candied bacon, and avocado puree for the perfect blend of flavors in every bite.
The Macaroni and ‘Cheese’ Bites are “cheesy” bites of goodness paired with tomato and peppers. The Vegetable Burger with ‘Cheese’ is a fantastic plant-based option. It’s topped with spicy slaw, pepper jack ‘cheese’, lettuce, and tomato. Lastly, we’ve got the Multigrain Salad with Tofu. This delicious new addition combines mixed greens, wild rice, bell peppers, and sesame vinaigrette. It’s also available with chicken, steak, or salmon if you’d like.
In addition to all these bites, there’s also a new sip joining the menu. The Pineapple Mule is returning from its temporary run during Black History Month, and now will be featured as a permanent offering at Geyser Point Bar & Grill. It brings together Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch Whiskey, Hella Cocktail Co. Ginger Bitters, pineapple juice, ginger beer, and mint for a refreshing and delicious beverage. Guest Experience Managers Mauro Santiago Marcos and Megan Reinhardt crafted this cocktail centered around Uncle Nearest Whiskey which pays homage to the first known Black master distiller, Nathan ‘Nearest’ Green. In addition to Geyser Point Bar & Grill, the Pineapple Mule will be added to over 40 Disney Resort hotel bars and lounges.
Three Bridges Bar and Grill
Get ready to bask in the good vibes and good flavors at Three Bridges Bar and Grill at Villa del Lago. This open-air spot found at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is a fan favorite, and for good reason. All the food is available via mobile order too.
First up, we’ve got the Korean Fried Chicken Bao Buns. This bite is paired with lime mayo, sweet-and-spicy gochujang sauce, ‘kimchi’ pickles, and radish. Another new starter is the Tamarind Soy-glazed Pork Ribs with scallions, pickled fresno chili, and cilantro. Whether you’re a ceviche fan or looking to try it, the Ceviche Classico is the perfect dish to satisfy your taste buds. It deliciously features kona kampachi, sweet potato, cancha, red onion, chile, and leche de tigre.
For a refreshing salad, the Villa del Lago Wedge Salad is a must. It combines baby iceberg lettuce, chorizo, bleu cheese, and marinated tomatoes topped with avocado dressing. You can also get it with grilled shrimp or grilled chicken if you’d like some added protein.
It’s time for the entrées! Few things are better than tacos and the new Pork Carnitas Tacos are no different. These are served with a trio of sauces – chipotle-pineapple salsa, tomatillo salsa verde, and salsa borracha – along with cotija cheese and pickled vegetables served with black beans and rice. The Chicken Mole Poblano is another must-try with a sweet corn-Oaxacan cheese tamale, rich mole poblano sauce, and radish.
If you’re in the mood to fulfill that burger fix, the Three Bridges Signature Burger is just the plate for you. This is not your average burger. This one is topped with a bacon marmalade, sun-dried tomato jam, smoked gouda queso, crispy vegetables, and arugula served with smoked paprika fries.
Last up for new main dishes is the Plancha-seared Mahi Mahi and Shrimp. Seafood fans will love this new item. It’s expertly paired with basmati rice, bok choy, Thai red coconut-curry sauce, and mint.
Some of your favorite plant-based bites like the Guacamole, Roasted Corn Dip, and ‘Poke’ Bowl, which is now available with tofu, aren’t going anywhere, so no need to fret.
The Warm Churros are still on the menu, but now featuring three dipping sauces: tequila caramel, spiced chocolate, and mango-chamoy. Another sweet delight is the Coconut Flan with passionfruit sauce, mango, and hibiscus. You may have seen this dish previously on the menu for Women’s History Month, and now it has made Three Bridges Bar and Grill at Villa del Lago its permanent home.
Three new beverages are on the way. The Cold Brew Old Fashioned combines SelvaRey Chocolate Rum, Tia Maria Coffee Liqueur, Joffrey’s Mexican Femenino Cold Brew, and Hella Cocktail Co. Orange Bitters. For some red wine with a twist, the Tinto de Verano serves up red wine, Combier Creme de Mure, Minute Maid Premium Lemonade, and Sprite. This refreshing cocktail is traditionally served in the summer months in Spain. And for a tropical beverage that’s non-alcoholic, the Tropical Coconut Cooler is a refreshing blend of coconut, orange, pineapple, and lime juices with a salt rim.
Now, it’s time to relax and feast because we’re heading over to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort where Banana Cabana has got some new bites joining the menu. Pair one of this location’s deliciously refreshing beverages with a savory bite like the new Banana Cabana Burger. This dish features Caribbean barbecue, tomatillo-jalapeño cream cheese, and pineapple salsa with plantain crunch served with french fries.
The Grilled Wings now feature two new sauce flavors – Rum Barbecue and Guava Buffalo. But don’t worry, the tasty Jamaican Jerk is still there too. These three options are designed by the talented culinary team to be an island-style of mild (Rum Barbecue), medium (Guava Buffalo), and hot (Jamaican Jerk). No matter your sauce of choice, your wings will be joined by carrots and a tasty cilantro-lime crema.
There are two new seafood items – the Seafood Fritters served with a passion fruit aïoli and the Coconut Shrimp served with citrus-chili sauce and french fries. The island vibes are even better on Fridays and Saturdays when Banana Cabana features a live steel drum band.
