What’s New in Disney Springs: TWO New Dining Locations and a Secret Menu

There’s one place in Disney World that we definitely don’t think gets the love it deserves…

DisneySprings

DisneySprings! This shopping and dining location is completely FREE to visit (and parking is free!), and there’s so much to do — from delicious treats to unique merchandise, and some amazing entertainment. And if you haven’t stopped by in a little while, we’re sharing all the news that you missed from this section of Disney World!

Disney Springs Food Updates

Paddlefish

Let’s start things off over at Paddlefish, where there are some new — and SECRET — menu items! At this restaurant, you’ll find a secret pairing menu for lunch, Monday through Friday from 12PM to 3PM. We ordered the burger, which is a 9-ounce Proprietary Blend Patty with Housemade Pickles, Red Onion, and Pimento Cheese on a Brioche Bun.

And during our visit, we also ordered the seasonal Shamrock Sour drink! It’s Jameson, Midori, Sour Apple Liqueur, Agave, and Ginger aleand it’s very sweet.

Amorette’s Patisserie

And speaking of new food, we stopped at Amorette’s Patisseriewhere we ordered a new treat that’s in Disney Springs in honor of the release of Pixar’s Turning Red. It’s a dome cake made to look like a red panda, and it’s made with Layers of rich chocolate nut brownie, coconut vanilla custard, and dark chocolate ganache.

Turning Red Dome Cake

You can get this petite treat for $9 for a limited time, and spoiler alert — we really liked it!

Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar

At Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Barthe Indiana Jones-themed bar in Disney Springs, you’ll find an Annual Passholder-exclusive drink for a limited time. It’s called the First class ticketand it’s a Mule made with Bacardi Tangerine with Ginger Beer and garnished with an Orange Slice.

Tangerine Mule? Yes, please!

You’ll need to show your Annual Passholder card to the bartender in order to grab this one, and it’ll cost you $14.

Goofy’s Candy Co.

And speaking of treats that are only around for a limited time, we’ve started to spot Easter and spring-themed snacks in the bakery cases around Disney World. We noticed quite a bit of pink, yellow, and other pastels when we stopped by Goofy’s Candy Co. at Disney Springs this week.

Gideon’s Bakehouse

And finally, we have to talk about the exclusive cake at Gideon’s Bakehouse! This Coffee Toffee Vanilla Bean Cake is only available on the weekends in March at the Disney Springs and East End Market locations of the shop.

Coffee IN the cake.

So what’s in that cake? Well, it’s made with 3 layers of vanilla coffee bean cake and filled with Gideon’s signature Coffee Buttercream that has crunchy toffee pieces in it! If you stop by to order, keep in mind that there’s a two-slice limit per customer.
