It’s always nice when Disney invites you out to be a taste tester for them! I mean how could you say no to that? So here is an inside look at the new 2019 Disney H2O Glow Food and Beverage Offerings! There were so many amazing tropical flavors, you will find lots of coconut and fruit flavors in these dishes.
H20 Glow Nights Food Options
This classic dish is a citrus-marinated grilled chicken, peppers and onions served with jicama slaw, candied kumquats, pineapple, and watermelon.
Bonnie’s Beef Brisket
Marinated beef in a port wine sauce served with baby carrots, fingerling potatoes and pico de gallo. It didn’t live up to 4 Rivers Brisket but it was still pretty good. It was tender and had a bit of flavor and a little bit of heat as well.
Cheese Party Plate
Port Salut, smoked cheddar, fontina cheese, smoked gouda, grapes, strawberries, and Townhouse crackers.
Surf’s Up Chicken Noodle Salad
Salad with Bulgogi chicken, noodles, tomatoes, topped with black & white sesame seeds. I was expecting a warm dish here but this is more of like a chilled noodle salad. It was good and not overly heavy on the soy sauce.
Fish Out of Water
This was my favorite out of all the dishes we got to sample. It’s a baked lemon pepper cod with a side of baby carrots and coconut rice. Not going to lie to you. At first, I didn’t want any part of fish on a hot 90 degree Florida day. It was light and refreshing and the rice was the perfect pairing. I love that this served up a light and healthy option for the party.
Beverage Options at H20 Glow Nights
This comes in both an alcoholic and non-alcoholic version. Note: this was a sample size the one at the event will come in a larger cup.
Not Your Father’s Root Beer Float
This is a classic rootbeer float made with Not Your Father’s Root Beer. A category-defining craft specialty ale brewed with unique spices and of course alcohol.
I am personally so excited that they are rolling out all these new food items special to the event. It was just a let down last year that they really only offered a couple of food and drink items custom to the event. With a theme all around Toy Story, the food ideas are endless. I can’t wait to see what offerings future years have.
Do you plan on attending H2O Glow Nights this year? If you do let us know in the comments as well as which dish you want to try the most.
I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
