Hey Thrill Seekers!
Gavin wanted to write this blog but because of his childlike mind I though it would be safer for me to tell you all about what you can find inside Woody’s Lunchbox. 😀
You’ll find Woody’s Lunchbox inside Toy Story Land which is opening in Hollywood Studios on June 30th and will see guests shrink to the size of a toy to be able to explore Woody, Buzz, Jessie and friends world. Yesterday we spoke a bit about some of the food and drink that they’ll be serving up at the walk-up window on OAT Live. (please feel free to skip the first few minutes as Gavin broke the microphone)
Disney have put a hell of a lot of effort in to this menu and the team at Flavor Lab – the concept development kitchen have created ‘sentimental food favourites’ and put a modern twist on them both in the flavours and look of the food. Lenny DeGeorge – Concept Development Culinary Director of WDW said “Everyone has a special food memory, so it can be tricky putting a modern spin on the favorites, we honoured these classic dishes by using the best ingredients to elevate the flavors. How we constructed the sandwiches was important, such as layering the ingredients in a specific order, to maximize textures and flavors. Why have a cold sandwich when you can have a toasted hot, gooey cheese-filled one?” The menu has been in development for around a YEAR!!!
Check out this snippet of what you will be able to get at Woody’s Lunchbox come June 30th..
S’more French Toast Breakfast Sandwich – Oozy goodness in a chocolate ganache- and marshmallow-stuffed French toast topped with graham cracker crumbles. Inspired by the classic American campfire treat. This actually sounds veeerrrryyyyy tempting to me, although maybe not for breakfast.. or before a big ride..
Smoked Turkey, Eggs, Swiss, Peppers, and Onions on Sourdough – The perfect hand-held stack of breakfast goodness.
Breakfast Bowl – The green army men line up for this hearty bowl of potato barrels, brisket-country gravy, and scrambled eggs. Scrambled Eggs and GRAVY?!?!
BBQ Brisket Melt – With a nod to cowboy Woody, this Texas-style smoked brisket features cheddar, Monterey Jack, pickles, and BBQ sauce on garlic butter-grilled sourdough.
Monte Cristo with Raspberry Jam – Woody’s version of this classic sandwich has layers of ham, turkey, Swiss, and raspberry jam…and is grilled to a golden brown.
Smoked Turkey, Tomato, and Lettuce on Multigrain Bread – This quintessential lunch box sandwich is a light and fresh option. And to give it a kick of flavor, we add a creamy Dijonnaise.
Totchos – Potato barrels, corn chips, chili, and cheese – what’s not to love??
The younger toys can get a grilled cheese sandwich or turkey sandwich, both served with potato barrels and mandarin oranges.
Sides Include: tomato basil soup, vegetable macaroni salad, and potato barrels. Mini Babybel snack cheese, the official snack cheese of Walt Disney World Resort, is also an option to eat with your meal or as an on-the-go snack.
And now for pudding mmmmm…
Raspberry Lunch Box Tart garnished with Icing and Dried Fruit and Chocolate-Hazelnut Lunch Box Tart garnished with Icing and Caramelized Bacon – Even toys need a sweet treat! Inspired by breakfast toaster pastries, this modern interpretation, with its uniquely delicate crust, is the perfect hand-held pastry.
Banana Split Yogurt Parfait – Layers of banana-vanilla Greek yogurt (with a hint of honey), fresh bananas, strawberries, and pineapple topped with granola and chocolate chips. A delicious and healthful way to start the day! Take out the honey (yuck) and i’m all for this!!
Also, check out this really cool Alien Sipper cup which can be bought and filled with any fountain drink or ‘the signature Mystic Portal Punch – Powerade Mountain Berry Blast with flavors of lemon-lime and tangerine.’
Adults or the ‘big kids’ as they will be known in Toy Story Land can try the ‘Grown-Up’s Lemonade cocktail’ which consists of cherry vodka, Odwalla Lemonade, and black cherry purée or the usual beer, or cider.
It’s not long now until Toy Story Land opens (it’s77 days away to be precise) and its looking better and better each time Disney give us some more info, who’s excited?!
