Disney’s Boardwalk is just outside Disney’s Beach Club Resort and is peppered with shops, restaurants and bars. It’s a great place for a morning stroll, especially if you’re up early as it’s nice and quiet.
We stopped for breakfast at Trattoria Al Forno. The breakfast menu offers up eggs served all ways, pancakes, waffles and their famous breakfast pizza.
I had the Poached Eggs with Fennel Sausage, Tomato Gravy and Soft Polenta, it was really different to anything I’ve had before, a really comforting and filling breakfast which set me up for a day around the parks.
Disney Springs has had a huge make over since I last visited. It is now a bustling area with chic designer shops, trendy bars, restaurants and street food.
There’s even a Cupcake ATM at Sprinkles!
For lunch our lovely guide Jordan recommended BB Wolf’s Sausage Co. – an artisan sausage kiosk serving all things porky to take away.
Becky and I both had the Piggy Trio and felt like little piggies eating it! It was well worth it, each mini hotdog had a different flavour and toppings. The pickles on the side were the perfect garnish to cut through all the pork.
Dinner was at one of those trendy restaurants I mentioned. STK is where all the cool people hang out, complete with a DJ, this is a restaurant to visit if you want a lively night out. The champagne and cocktails were flowing from the off. I started with a Cherry Poppin’ cocktail (Botanist Gin, Luxardo cordial, limeade fizz and muddled cherries. This was quickly followed up with a Strawberry Cobbler (Belvedere, fresh muddled strawberry, and a graham cracker crust!). Don’t forget to take your passport with you if you want to drink alcohol, they are incredibly strict and it doesn’t matter if you’re 21 or 51. No passport, no drink.
A huge portion of Crispy Rock Shrimp with Chilli Remoulade, too big for me to finish, helped soak up the alcohol.
After having steak on the first night at the Yachtsman’s Steakhouse I decided to mix it up a bit and have slow cooked beef.
Gordon sitting beside me ordered the Rib Eye, I couldn’t help but snap a picture of it. It was the biggest steak I’ve ever seen!
Still to come on our foodie tour of Walt Disney World; Tiffins, The Contemporary, and the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival.
