10 Disney World Food Facts Disney Will Never Tell You (Part 3)


Young or old, child or adult, there’s something
for everyone to enjoy at Disney World. And if you’re a foodie, then there is no end
to the delicacies you can enjoy here. But this isn’t all as there are some food secrets
Disney doesn’t want you to know. For a few tricks and life hacks, here’s 10 Disney World
Food Facts Disney Will Never Tell You – Part 3 The Grand Floridian’s life-size gingerbread
house Christmas time is unarguably the best time
to visit Disney World. True, there are more crowds and the lines are longer, but there
is also magic in the air and the decorations are unbelievable! Christmas comes quite early
to Disney World, lasting from early November right up until early January. And to make
the most of your holiday visit, be sure to check out the lobbies of all the hotels and
resorts at Disney World. The Christmas theme is everywhere and the decorations are magnificent
enough to even make the Christmas Grinch smile! One Disney World resort that takes Christmas
décor to another level is The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, for it sets up a life-size gingerbread
house in its lobby each year. The gingerbread house at The Grand Floridian is about 14 feet
tall and made from real gingerbread. About 800 pounds of flour, 140 pints of egg whites,
600 pounds of powdered sugar, 1050 pounds of honey, 600 pounds of chocolate and 35 pounds
of spices go into making this astounding creation. The structure is made from more than 5000
individual gingerbread shingles and a dusting of classic Disney magic! But this superb structure
is not just for looking; it doubles up as a sweets shop selling a variety of festive
treats and gingerbread items. More than 475 places to eat at Disney World Disney World has a ton of attractions in each
theme park. Whether you are here to ride the Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom, go on a Kilimanjaro
safari at Animal Kingdom or enjoy a time machine-themed experience at Spaceship Earth in Epcot, chances
are that you will be left feeling extremely hungry after each of these rides. But food
is never too far away at Disney World. Especially when there are reportedly 475 places to eat
here! This includes fine-dining and full-service restaurants, quick-service restaurants, food
carts, kiosks, etc. The number of full-service restaurants hovers around 90, plus hundreds
of quick services, restaurants, and kiosks. Several food carts selling fruits, snack packs,
drinks and more are scattered across the various parks at Disney World. And all these food
outlets cater to even the pickiest of eaters. There are turkey legs, churros, hot dogs,
Mickey bars, popcorn, citrus swirls, fish and chips, desserts, fine dining options and
more to choose from. With over 475 options, selecting the best dining choice for you and
your family can be quite tough. Food is extremely tasty and well made, wherever you choose to
dine at Disney World. So plan ahead and make sure you try a different place for each meal. Disney Dining Plans are not for everyone Like we said, there are more than 475 food
outlets at Disney World. For most visitors, it would be physically impossible to try out
all these places in one visit. Thus, it becomes imperative to do your research ahead of time
so that you’re not left running helter-skelter come mealtime. And unsurprisingly, food at
Disney World is not cheap. A meal for one, two or a family of four can cost you a pretty
penny. To ease your pocket pains, the folks at Disney came up with an ingenious way to
help visitors save money on food – Disney Dining Plans! In essence, Disney Dining Plans
are like prepaid plans for food that can be bought beforehand and used at various food
outlets across Disney parks. These dining plans also enable you to get hefty discounts
on food purchases throughout Disney World. So, springing for a Disney Dining Plan sounds
like a no-brainer, right? But experts suggest otherwise. Many believe that going for the
dining plan may not be the right choice for everyone. Dining plans may make sense to a
certain extent for families who wish to spend most of their time in the parks, eating from
various outlets, but it could also lead to overspending, which could ruin your vacation
budget completely. So, be wise and plan well before you buy a Disney Dining Plan. You can ask for free water Here’s the truth about water; what is a basic
and free commodity in most countries, when packed in a clear plastic bottle, it becomes
a chargeable item. And at Disney World, bottled water could cost you a pretty penny. While
you could be an eco-warrior and carry your own water from home, but in the stifling Florida
heat, that water is not going to be able to last you for long. Sooner or later, around
your fourth or fifth theme park ride, you’re going to have to spring for bottled water
at one of the beverage stands. But there is a secret Disney hack for those who don’t
want to pay for bottled water or carry their own water from home – you can get free cups
of water at practically every food and beverage stand in Disney World! Tap water is free and
available at all quick-service locations if you just ask nicely. All you have to do is
walk up to a quick-service restaurant or fountain drink stand and ask for a cup of water, plain
or iced. If you ask even more nicely, the staff member might even give you a large cup
of water. Alternatively, you could go to the various Starbucks outlets in Disney World
for your fix of tall, grande or venti waters. You may have to stand in a line but it’s
certainly a cheaper alternative to bottled water. Besides the water at Starbucks is filtered
and tastes better than Florida tap water, which many visitors claim has an odd taste. Speaking
of Florida tap water, you can get it for free from one of the many drinking water fountains
installed across the parks at Disney World. Most of them are located outside restrooms
and are easily accessible. Coral Reef is difficult to reserve one fine dining restaurant that stands out
from the crowd is Coral Reef restaurant in The Seas with Nemo & Friends (formerly Living
Seas) pavilion at Epcot. And the feature that makes this restaurant one of the most sought
after ones amongst diners is the giant aquarium around which the restaurant is created. Guests
at Coral Reef can dine next to this 6 million gallon aquarium containing a spectacular array
of marine life – from coral reefs through colorful fish to sea turtles. If you’re
lucky, you may even spot a diver swim by! As one of the largest aquariums in the U.S.,
Coral Reef restaurant has acquired quite a fan following. A table at this restaurant
is hard to come by and a table right next to the aquarium is even harder to obtain.
Reservations for the Coral Reef restaurant fill up almost as soon as they open up. Like
most Disney World restaurants, you can book a table up to 180 days in advance and reservations
are highly recommended at this restaurant. Check out Animal Kingdom restaurants for free
on culinary tours As one of Disney World’s most popular parks,
Animal Kingdom is a big hit with adults and children alike. Besides going on wildlife
safaris and admiring the wonderful landscapes, you can also eat tasty food from across the
African lands at one of the many themed table-service restaurants in Animal Kingdom. But if you
don’t want to spend a lot or are unable to get a reservation, there is another secret
hack to checking out the superb Animal Kingdom restaurants – by way of free culinary tours! For
those wanting to experience the exotic décor and offerings of the famed Animal Kingdom
restaurants without paying for it, Animal Kingdom Lodge is the key. All you have to
do is show up at the designated meeting spot and time, generally the front desk of the
lodge at 4 pm, and embark on a free culinary tour guided by an expert. On the tour, you
can check out the gorgeous African themed décor, review the fantastic menu offerings
and learn about the meaning behind each restaurant. During the half-day tour, you might visit
restaurants like Boma, Sanaa, and Jiko and the best part is, you will even get to sample
some menu items for free! Now that’s one heck of a hack to visiting some of the best-themed
restaurants at Disney World! Hamburgers and hotdogs are popular snacks We know that Mickey bars, turkey legs, popcorn,
Mickey pretzels, and churros are some of the most popular snacks at Disney World. And during
each festive season, the folks at Disney World come up with interesting variations of these
snacks to charm the visitors. Besides Mickey bars and turkey legs, there is a whole range
of other items that visitors can enjoy snacking on at Disney World. These include hamburgers
and hotdogs, the most beloved of all American fast-food items! Hamburgers are enjoyed so
much by visitors at Disney World that reportedly seven million of them are sold each year in
the various Disney World parks, and hotdogs are not very far behind. About three and a
half million hot dogs are eaten each year at Disney World. If that’s not fast-food love,
we don’t know what is! Victoria & Albert’s has very impressive
food stats! Perfectly described by Disney World as ‘Classic
Victorian elegance meets haute American cuisine’, Victoria and Albert’s is a fine dining restaurant
in The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. This multiple award-winning restaurant has a timeless
elegance in its Victorian décor, sumptuous food, and impeccable service. It’s a AAA
Five Diamond Award Recipient since 2000 and has many impressive statistics to its name.
To begin with, the restaurant offers an exclusive 11-course menu to guests seated at the Chef’s
Table. While you continue to wonder what the heck is served at an 11-course menu, how long
does it last, how many calories you might consume and how much it might cost you. The
über posh restaurant has 700 selections on its wine list with 4200 bottles in the cellar,
and reportedly, about 10,000 soufflés are served during the dessert course each year
at the restaurant. Is it any wonder that reservations at Victoria & Albert’s fill up months in
advance? Try The Grand Floridian for a dreamy Disney
cake Disney World is not just a magical place with
rides, roller coasters, parades, and fireworks, it is also one of the most popular places
for weddings. In fact, Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings continue to be featured in the list
of the top destinations for weddings and honeymoons. If you get married at Disney, you can be assured
of top-notch decorations, arrangements and of course, the most gorgeous wedding cake
ever! The pastry chefs at Disney are masters at creating the wedding cake of your dreams.
Reportedly, five pastry chefs exclusively work on making a wedding cake for Disney weddings.
In fact, the tallest Disney Fairy Tale Wedding cake ever made was ten feet tall. To get
a uniquely Disney cake, The Grand Floridian is your best bet! Whether you are after a
mini cake, a mini-castle cake, a fancy, fondant-covered cake for a special occasion or a Disney character
cake topper, you can be sure that the masterful pastry team at The Grand Floridian will be
able to make it for you. The pastry chefs at the hotel are also known for their grand
wedding cakes, including a multi-tiered one with a stunning Disney castle on top. Try ‘the grey stuff’ at a Magic Kingdom
restaurant Remember Lumière from ‘Beauty and the Beast’
and the song where he boasts of ‘the grey stuff’? Thanks to a bit of Disney magic
and ingenuity, you can actually taste ‘the grey stuff’ at the Be Our Guest restaurant
in Magic Kingdom. Whether you are a fan of the movie or not, this is a must-try dessert
for all because not only is it simply delicious, but it’s also served in the most adorable
manner. On the ‘Dessert Trio’ section of the menu, besides two other delectable
desserts, you also get an adorable teacup filled with the famous ‘grey stuff’. The
fully edible teacup looks exactly like the character ‘Chip’ and is made from white
chocolate. Guests can even get ‘the grey stuff’ on a cupcake topped with edible grey
pearls. And for those wondering about the taste of this grey stuff, it’s delicious! Treat yourself to more and tap that screen

  8. Disney only gives free “tap water” but you have to ask. Might as well drink from the restroom.

  9. Do you know if the Giant gingerbread house is eaten eventually?
    I hope so. ( would be a waste of food )
    ALL overpriced. but what are you going to do when you are a captive audience?
    Good video.

  10. Coral Reef is very easy to book for lunch. I've lunched there twice, both times made the reservation an hour before I showed up, and both times sat right in front of the tank. The tables in front of the tank are small, so a small party is more likely to get those, if you just ask politely.

  11. Ugh, this channel is so worthless. Wow, someone got this windbag of a broad a Fodor's book and sent her some Buzzfeed "articles." Then she figured out that most people are idiots and will watch her videos even if the titles are wildly misleading. I'm sure Disney would gladly tell you most of these facts.

    I can't wait for global warming to get bad enough to erase humanity from the planet…

  12. Wow: it must be really hard not watching any Babbletop video!
    My headphones are damaged 😬.
    I'm sorry if i miss y'all down.
    Continue the hard work people!
    Y'all do great 👍!

  13. If my country's amusement parks (enchanted Kingdom & 🌟 city could have fine dining experience like that, only rich people might afford that…. So few ones exist only on malls 😰😰😰.

  14. This gave me all the memories. I worked at Animal Kingdom Lodge for my College Program and it was amazing 😭

  15. Having a hard time on the NEVER WILL TELL PART. Can everyone say clickbait after watching this Disney park add?

  16. Churos ❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️

  17. I would never eat Disney again. I went as a kid and everyone in our party got sick from their hot dogs.

  18. As much as we all love it they are people staving why can they not do something so special like feed the people who need it and not wast all that ingredients on that

  19. Let me be honest. At først, i just hated you! ( for actually no reason) Now, i just can`t live without you`re information. Ergo: You are like crack!

  20. Y’all know that none of these are secrets right. Also, the dining plan is not a discount. In fact, for most people it costs more than what they would pay buying the meals individually.

  21. I hate this video. This isn't what I thought it would b. It's more of a commercial.

  22. I used to work at Disney World and all the water that comes out of the fountains and the soda fountains is actually filtered water

  23. I’ve never found Coral Reef to be difficult to book. Even the day of. It’s a neat place to eat though.
