Flavors of Florida at Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs presented by CORKCICLE – July 1 thru August 13 – Featuring Florida Flavors and New Culinary Series

Flavors of Florida presented by CORKCICLE at Disney Springs will be serving up some mouthwatering and fresh flavors inspired by the Sunshine State.

From July 1 through August 13, over 30 locations all throughout Disney Springs will be featuring a variety of dishes and sips inspired by homegrown flavors from Florida, like the Lime Garage Burger from D-Luxe Burger or the Gambas Gabardina from Jaleo by José Andrés.

Interested in seeing first-hand demonstrations from renowned chefs and restaurant owners? This year, Disney Springs will be featuring a new culinary series with demonstrations from Chef Art Smith and more!

We reached out to several of the chefs and owners from the Disney Springs Flavors of Florida event to get a “taste” of what is happening:

Wine Bar George

“Guests can join us now through August 13 for Flavors of Florida at Disney Springs! We are offering our new Dicuru Burrata with tomatoes from The Villages Grown, Belle Glade corn and Olde Hearth sourdough bread. I recommend pairing with Luna Nuda Pinot Grigio or Louis Michel Premier Cru Chablis. Both of which we offer on our menu by the glass, bottle and ounce! This seasonal burrata will be available for a limited time this summer during lunch and dinner.” — Master Sommelier George Miliotes, Owner of Wine Bar George at Disney Springs

Jaleo by Jose Andres

“Florida is a true culinary paradise, and we like to pay tribute by putting local ingredients front and center on our plates. While we partner with neighboring farmers, fishermen and purveyors year-round, Flavors of Florida is a unique opportunity to celebrate the rich agricultural heritage of our state. Our menu tells a story of Florida, and the ingredients are only enhanced by our signature Spanish flavors.” – Jaleo Disney Springs Head Chef, Kristoffer Anderson

This month, Jaleo Disney Springs is offering the ultimate Spanish experience with Flamenco Fridays, featuring live performances from talented flamenco dancers during dinner service. Beginning at 7:30 p.m. on every Friday of June, guests can enjoy delicious Spanish tapas and shareable pans of paella, while watching a mesmerizing art form — unique to the Southern regions of Spain — that is filled with flare and raw emotion. Tantalizing tapas include Tortilla de Patatas, Spanish omelet with potatoes and onions, while larger plates include Lubina a La Pobre, whole roasted Branzino served with potatoes, olive oil and fresh herbs, and of course — a variety of wood-fire grilled paellas. Superb sangrias, cocktails and wine are also available. Flamenco Fridays are perfect for families and friends to get together on summer nights for a memorable evening. Make reservations here before the month is out.

Enzo’s Hideaway

“It was a fun challenge to incorporate local flavors and ingredients into our classic Italian-style offerings. Using shrimp from Key West in a savory risotto, and playing on the classic flavors of vanilla and orange in our Creamsicle Coppa dessert, we are to able to offer new and fresh menu items with a local flair, that are still true to what guests expect at Maria and Enzo’s and Enzo’s Hideaway.” – Chef Ben Dorado, Executive Chef at Maria and Enzo’s and Enzo’s Hideaway

Morimoto Asia

“At Morimoto Asia, we always want to stay true to our brand of delicious pan-Asian cuisine with the highest quality ingredients. Our dishes for Flavors of Florida follow these standards while adding in some Florida-inspired ingredients and flavors, such as Cedar Key clams and oranges.” – Chef Takeshi Ikeuchi, Executive Chef at Morimoto Asia
