Today we are reviewing Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. This fast casual restaurant is what's known as a walk-up at Disney. Which means you walk up to a podium and place your order, then there is a queue where you wait for your food and then seat yourself.
Tomorrowland Terrace is a seasonal restaurant at Disney. It's really only open when there are peak times for visitors to be in the park. So this restaurant isn't open very often. Which is why we went over there during spring break. Now it's not always open during spring break but we got really lucky for the opportunity to dine here again for our blog.
Seating is plentiful here and it's all under cover out of the sun and rain.
Condiments are at two locations after you get your items.
Tomorrowland Terrace is also known for it's Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party that a special event booking. It's available for evening fireworks most nights as well as special events like Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. To book you must call 407-939-3463. Admission is $84 per adult and $50 per child (ages 3-9) Park admission is required as well. We have not done the dessert party here as of yet.
On this day we were here for lunch. The menu changes almost every time this location opens. So be aware the next time the Tomorrowland Terrace is open the menu might not be the same as what is shown here. In October of 2018 the menu included Asian Salad, Chicken Caesar Salad, Cheese and Pepperoni Pizza, and Pulled Pork and Vegetarian Banh Mi sandwiches. Hours of operation also change. On this day the hours were 11:00 until 3:00.
We had the Dipped Chicken Strips, dipped in Buffalo sauce with French Fries. I've actually had these here before. We were on a tour last January and the lunch for the tour was in this restaurant. I'd opted for the same item at that time. I do like these Chicken Strips. They use to serve them at the Backlot Express in Hollywood Studios but they were replaced there by chicken nuggets. I like these a lot better. They are dipped in your choice of Buffalo sauce or Barbecue sauce. One note, I did go back up to the window and asked for some ranch dressing. If you want some ranch to go with these just ask when you are at the window so you don't have to make a second trip. They gave me a little cup of ranch.
We also had the Roasted Turkey BLT Sandwich, which is Oven Roasted Turkey, Applewood smoked bacon, Smoked Gouda Cheese, Chipotle Garlic Aioli, Lettuce and Tomato on a roll. For those of you unfamiliar with Chipotle I like to think of it as a Mexican barbecue flavor. Aioli is a fancy word for mayonnaise. :-) This sandwich was very good. The bun was soft but sturdy enough that it held the contents together without falling apart. The Turkey was in fact roasted fresh turkey. It was a large sandwich and big enough to share.
Not the prettiest picture but a good cross section of the sandwich.
Did you know you can order a side of the macaroni and cheese from the kid's menu? It's $4.99 for just the mac and cheese. And it makes a great side dish to other items on the menu here. The container is about 4" across and 2" deep.
All in all we ended up with a fair amount of food that day.
We do like Tomorrowland Terrace, it's a quick bite to eat and great food, when it's open. So if you are there at peak times it's a great place to get out of the sun, have a bite to eat and relax for a little bit.
We did do some walking around the park on this day. It did happen to be Dapper Day at Magic Kingdom that day. We saw so many people partaking in the Dapper Day festivities. So many were dressed to the nines in their dapper best.
They even had the double decker bus parked on Main Street so that everyone could get a photo of them in their fancy duds on the bus. Disney photo pass photographers were on hand to capture the moment.
The moat around Cinderella Castle has been drained for walkway expansions around the castle.
But I was still able to get a great photo of the castle.
We decided to take a walk through Adventureland.
And we came across the darnedest thing. There is a flower bed on the walkway to Adventureland from Main Street. And it has lots and lots of Cana Lillies. But the strangest thing is that some of the flowers are yellow, and some are red.
That in itself isn't so strange, but then some of the plants are both yellow and red flowers on the same stalk.
And it gets even stranger. Some of them are literally half yellow and half red. Now that's the strangest thing I've ever seen.
When we walked through Adventureland I noticed the door to Club 33 off to the right. The last time we were there it was still behind construction walls. Club 33 is a private dining club, very private. There is an initiation fee of $25,000-$50,000 and annual dues of $30,000. It's rumored there's a 10 year waiting list to get in.
When we walked by the Magic Carpets of Aladdin we noticed that the spitting camels were GONE.
I tried my best to get a good photo of the bricks at the entrance of the park today. Since they will be taking everything up here soon to make a new entrance for the park. Do you know how hard it is to get this entire area with no one standing on the circle during spring break. Timing is everything.
The only other photo I'd like to share from that day is of the Riverboat. It had such a great background as it was turning the corner that I had to snap this one.
That's all for today. I hope you enjoy. Until tomorrow.
