Diamond Horseshoe at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom is changing again, adding a traditional a la carte menu to the all-you-can-eat restaurant.The
Long-time Disney visitors will remember that the Diamond Horseshoe for decades was known more for its live saloon stage show than its food, which was pretty much unwrapped sandwiches from Disney's Central Foods kitchen. (My one and only day working in food service was unwrapping and plating sandwiches and pouring fountain drinks at the Diamond Horseshoe.)
The Revue/Jamboree show closed in 2004, and the venue operated on and off as a counter service eatery until two years ago, when Disney brought back table service and implemented an all-you-can-eat menu at the restaurant.
The new Diamond Horseshoe menu, which starts on Wednesday, will retain the all-you-can-eat platter, now of pulled pork, barbecue brisket, and grilled chicken thighs. The platters will include a choice of two sides of macaroni and cheese, cole slaw, baked beans, and corn on the cob. But instead of a Frontier Salad to start, diners now will get an Appetizer Platter, with mixed green salad, potato salad, jalapeno cornbread, and a cucumber, watermelon and tomato salad. A Dessert Platter wth buttermilk chocolate cake, peaches and cream cheescake, and blueberry cobbler replaces the Campfire Brownie for dessert.
The a la carte menu features a Carved Beef Brisket Sandwich with creamy coleslaw on a brioche bun, a Barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwich with macaroni and cheese and crispy onions on brioche, a Creamy Turkey Salad Sandwich on multigrain bread with lettuce and tomato, and a Grilled Chicken Thigh Sandwich with BBQ mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, and onion on a Kaiser roll. There's a mixed green salad, too. The dessert options are individual servings of the items from the Dessert Platter mentioned above.
And if you want a solo version of the family-style all-you-cant-eat platter, you can get a single-serving platter of any of the meats, plus two side dishes, or a vegetable platter of four sides dishes, which include options from the Appetizer Platter and sides on the all-you-can-eat option.
And to bury the lead here, there will be beer and wine on the Diamond Horseshoe menu, too, as Walt Disney World continues to expand the sale of alcohol in the Magic Kingdom.Tweet
