HUGE Changes Coming to a Disney Springs Restaurant

We’ve seen stores close in Disney Springs, old character meet-and-greet locations return to the parks, and new restaurants open — sometimes it feels like EVERYTHING is changing in Disney World.

Disney Springs

For example, a LOT has changed at EPCOT as it continues to undergo a massive multi-year transformation. In fact, there’s construction all over the park! Even one classic ride in the Magic Kingdom has closed to be re-themed as a brand new ride. Disney World restaurants are changing, too, including one Disney Springs restaurant that just revealed a brand-new menu!

Jaleo by Chef José Andrés features a Spanish-inspired menu of tapas with signature dishes such as paella, cured meats, Spanish cheeses, and more. Well, Jaleo is getting a new menu for the summer with some brand NEW dishes. 


Here’s what you’ll find on the new menu:

  • Cono de Atún “Gilda” — Cone of Tuna Tartare, Modern Olive, Cantabrian Anchovy and Piparra Pepper for $8
  • Gazpacho Estilo Algeciras — Classic chilled Spanish soup made with Tomato, Cucumbers, and Green Bell Peppers for $10
