We are so excited for the new dining experiences that are coming to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort within Walt Disney World. Disney Parks Blog released more details about the expansion of the Centertown Market at the resort as well as a pool-side bar that will be called Banana Cabana. Centertown Market is a quick-service restaurant the has been expanded and themed after an indoor street market in the Caribbean. The menu will include a variety of different fast casual dishes that feature delicious Caribbean flavors.
One of the highlights of the menu will be the new Island Bowl, which will be available for breakfast and dinner.
The bowls are customized by each guest and will include the choice of a base, protein, sauce, etc. Base options include red beans and rice, home fries and greens, depending on the time of the day. Proteins include options like rotisserie beef, bacon, chorizo, plant-based sausage, pork shoulder, banana leaf-wrapped fish, jerk chicken thighs or vegan chipotel seitan, also depending on the time of the day. Breakfast sauce options include salsa verde or pico de gallo, while the dinner sauces include chimichurri, garlic ranch, or spicy pink sauce. There are over 30 different bowl combinations that you can make!
Breakfast will also include classic dishes like Eggs Benedict or the All American Breakfast Platter with eggs, home fries, sausage, bacon, and toast as well as island-inspired creations like Coconut Waffles with fresh fruit or the Banana Pancakes topped with granola and pineapple chunks and served with sausage and maple syrup.
There are a lot of classic favorites, too, so guests will be able to find something that looks delicious to each member of their party!
Be sure to save room for dessert so you can check out the Tropical Tart with key lime, mango, and passion fruit curd with Chantilly or the Chocolate Crème Tart with chocolate cake, coffee Chantilly, and caramel crispies.
The beverage island will offer fountain beverages, freshly-brewed coffee, and a variety of teas as well as draft beer and single-serve wine and cocktails.
You won’t want to miss the offerings at Banana Cabana, too! The new pool-side bar will have an outdoor lounge where families can enjoy food and beverages by the pool. Cabana-style drapes flank the seating groups and re-purposed steel drums will illuminate a central communal table made from a wooden boat.
Banana Cabana will offer specialty cocktails that pair nicely with the Caribbean style food. Drink options include the Pink Guava Colada featuring rum, guava puree, pineapple juice, and cream of coconut and the Kraken Punch with spiced rum, blood orange sour, and pomegranate and orange juices. Caribbean beers and a variety of craft and traditional beers and premium white and red wines on tap. If you want a delicious non-alcoholic drink, then check out the Tropical Paradise, a fruity blend of pineapple coconut, cinnamon, and lime dusted with nutmeg.
Both of these new locations are set to open in late Fall of 2018. We will share more information with all of you as soon as we have it.
