We stopped into ABC Commissary during Disney Jollywood Nights to try all the different offerings exclusively available during the specially ticketed event.
Menu at ABC Commissary During Disney Jollywood Nights
All of the special menu items are listed on screens above the registers with photos, prices, and descriptions.
The desserts are listed on their own screen.
Beverages for the party, along with other beverages available throughout the day at ABC Commissary, are listed separately from the other offerings.
There’s also a paper version of the menu in the form of a tabletop standee at the registers. The offerings include food, desserts, an alcoholic beverage, and two non-alcoholic options. We tried everything on the menu, so let’s tuck in to our festive holiday meal!
ABC Commissary Special Menu Items for Disney Jollywood Nights
Chicken Empanadas with Street Corn – $6.29
Chicken Empanadas served with a side of Street Corn Salad topped with Chili Peppers, Lime, and Cojita Cheese
These are a great two-bite snack. The pastry pockets are filled with a blend of diced chicken in a tangy sauce. These are a decent rendition of a typical chicken empanada, but certainly not remarkable. We’ve had empanadas with better pastry and more ample filling.
The side of street corn was served slightly chilled. The corn flavor was fresh, but it was likely canned corn. The tajin seasoning on top added a nice bit of flavor, although our serving was very heavy on the Cotija cheese — to the point where it overwhelmed the other flavors. We would rather have a third empanada in place of the corn side.
Yuca con Chicharrón – $5.79
Fried Pork Belly, Yuca, Red Pickled Onions, and Chili Pepper-Lime Seasoning with a Yellow Pepper Aioli
For us, this was the stand-out item of the event. For something so simple as a deep-fried piece of pork belly, this dish was remarkable — even being a little over-fried.
It had great flavor and texture, melting in your mouth. The salty richness of the pork was complemented perfectly by the sauce. The fried yuca was a very decent version of this common dish, and also paired well with the dipping sauce.
The item came with four yuca fries, which we found to be generous. Overall, we highly recommend this, it would be the first item we would get again.
Birria Taco – $5.29
Shredded Short Rib and Monterey Jack served with a Beef Consommé for Dipping
This tastes very much like an authentic Birria taco you’d get at any Mexican restaurant, served with a side of consommé for dipping. The shredded short rib is tender, and the cheese is plentiful, perhaps more so than an average Birria taco.
The consommé is rich with some diced onion to add just a little crunch when you dip the taco. The outside of the corn tortilla is a little greasy, but this is pretty standard for the dish.
Mushroom Taco – $4.49
Chili-roasted Mixed Mushrooms, Avocado Crema, Baby Gem Lettuce, and garnished with Sliced Radish (vegan)
There is a nice variety of mushrooms in this taco, but overall, the flavor was just a little too strong without much else to support it. The sauce on the mushrooms made the taco a little too salty.
While the avocado crema added a nice texture, it added no flavor, and the same was true of the lettuce. We would say this is the weakest of the food offerings at ABC Comissary.
Tembleque – $4.99
Coconut Custard with Caramel-Rum Sauce and a sprinkle of Cinnamon (Made with or contains alcohol product)
This is a delicious, custardy dessert. It offers a nice coconut flavor without being too strong or artificial-tasting. The texture is a very light, almost fluffy custard.
For such a relatively simple dish, this is remarkably well-executed. We loved the lightness of it along with the bright coconut flavor.
Mexican Hot Cocoa Cheesecake – $5.29
Spiced Chocolate Cheesecake on a Chocolate Cookie Base topped with RumChata Whipped Cream, Mini Marshmallows, and a Chocolate Handle (Made with or contains alcohol product)
This is a really nice take on a chocolate cheesecake.
The cheesecake itself is excellent and dense, yet creamy. The chocolate flavor is also good while not being too overpowering. There’s also just a hint of chili spice to give it some heat, but not too much. The whipped cream also adds a nice texture contrast, lightening up the density of the dish. This was a dessert that grew on us, the more we ate it.
Oaxaca Old Fashioned – $9.00
Caśa Dragones Blanco Tequila, Del Maguey Vidá Mezcal, Agave Nectar, and flavors of Chocolate and Orange served over Ice garnished with an Orange (Beverage with Alcohol)
The Mezcal is the most prominent flavor in this drink. While we were looking forward to the idea of trying an Old Fashioned with tequila, the smokiness of the Mezcal dominated all of the other flavors in the cocktail.
The sweetness of the agave nectar was nice, but we tasted almost no chocolate or orange flavor. If you like Mezcal, this may be worth a try, but if not, we’d recommend passing and moving on to other, better cocktails at Disney Jollywood Nights.
Zero-Proof Piña Colada – $7.49
Lyre’s Spiced Cane Spirit, Coconut, Pineapple, and Lime (Beverage with Zero-Proof Spirit)
This was one of our least favorite beverages we tried at the event. The zero-proof cocktail has a strange, synthetic taste to it that we didn’t notice in other zero-proof beverages available. The slightly chemical taste ruined the drink for us and we would not recommend it.
Mangonada – $5.99
Non-Alcoholic Frozen Mango Beverage with Mango-Chili Pepper-Lime Sauce and Chili Pepper-Lime Seasoning on top
This frozen drink has a very fruity, light, and refreshing taste. The mango flavor was very natural and not too sweet.
The chili pepper-lime seasoning added a nice kick that was a combination of spicy and citrusy, but it didn’t overwhelm the overall flavor. This is a great non-alcoholic drink option, but it could also work well with some added alcohol if you choose.
