Who doesn’t love nachos? With so many nacho offerings available around Walt Disney World Resort, you won’t want to miss this list of the best nachos at Disney World from all four parks and Disney Springs.

Starting at the Planet Hollywood Observatory in Disney Springs, you’ll be excited to find a hefty Nachos Grande on the appetizer menu. A great dish to share with friends, these corn tortilla chips come piled high with chipotle chicken, black bean sauce, cruda salsa verde pico de gallo, queso fresco, sour cream and a blend of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses.

But that’s not all – Disney Springs has a couple more delicious Nacho offerings available. The Smokehouse, located in Disney Springs West Side, has their incredible Smokehouse Nachos: crispy fried tri-color corn tortilla chips topped with house-made cheese sauce, avocado lime crema, pickled jalapeños, fresh-made pic de gallo and cilantro. You can also order these nachos with pulled pork or smoked beef brisket. And over at T-REX™ in the Disney Springs Marketplace, you’ll find the Colloso Beef Nachos for Two, with Monterey Jack, cheddar cheese, black beans, pico de gallo, green onions and sour cream. These nachos will leave you roaring for more!

Over at Disney’s BoardWalk, ESPN Club is bringing the game with their Tuna Nachos. This delicious appetizer consists of house-made wonton chips, togarashi-dusted tuna, soy-sesame sauce and wasabi aioli. And these aren’t the only gourmet nachos on the menu – you can also find Pub Nachos with house-fried corn tortilla chips, house-made chili, shredded cheddar, cheese sauce, sour cream, pico de gallo and jalapeños, with the option to add shrimp.

Next on my list is the Loaded Greek Nachos available at the Greece Marketplace. A special dish crafted for the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, these nachos consist of pita chips, meatless sausage crumbles and vegan tzatziki. And not only is this dish vegan, it’s kid-friendly as well! Be sure to stop by Epcot in the fall, as these nachos are only available during the festival.

For those looking for some smaller portions of nachos, if you’re in Magic Kingdom Park, you can always stop by Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe for some classic beef nachos – tortilla chips topped with queso, seasoned ground beef, lettuce and tomato. For a vegetarian option, you can also ask to substitute black beans in place of the seasoned ground beef! Or if you’re at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Dockside Diner near Echo Lake serves up some tasty chili cheese nachos with guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream. For the younger guests, a Kid’s Nachos is also available that comes topped with chili and cheese and includes carrot sticks, apple slices and your choice of a small lowfat milk or a small Dasani® Water. In addition, both of these nachos are completely vegetarian.

Finally, the Yak and Yeti™ Restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom has a unique sharable nachos dish that’s perfect for two! The Ahi Tuna Nachos come with sushi grade Ahi, Asian slaw, crispy fried wontons, wasabi aioli and sweet soy glaze.

No matter which park you are visiting, there’s plenty of options for you to chow down on some delicious nachos at Disney World!

One of the things I love about “Happily Ever After,” the new nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park, is the surprising number of “rare” Disney characters you can spot in the show. And by “rare,” I mean those characters you love but rarely see elsewhere in the parks.

Thanks to the projection technology of this beautiful new show, characters like the Emperor and Shan-Yu from “Mulan”; Syndrome and his Omni-Bot from “The Incredibles”; and WALL-E and EVE from “WALL-E” all have special moments in the show.

Here are seven rare Disney characters in Happily Ever After that I’m sure you’ll be delighted to find in this new nighttime spectacular.

Remy from “Ratatouille” – At one point during “Happily Ever After,” the castle is transformed into Gusteau’s, the restaurant mentioned in the film, with Remy overlooking a Parisian landscape in the distance.

Joy & Sadness from “Inside Out” – This duo appears when the castle appears to be stacked – and then flooded – with colorful memory orbs.

Hiro & Baymax from “Big Hero 6” – This crime-fighting genius and his BFF, Baymax, appear to make an impressive blast off from Cinderella Castle.

Ralph & Vanellope from “Wreck It Ralph” – The gaming duo, Ralph and Vanellope, appear when the castle is wrapped in a candy motif. (Note the castle clock in the picture above, which has transformed into a mint).

“Happily Ever After” is performed nightly at Magic Kingdom Park. For the latest showtimes and information, be sure to check your My Disney Experience app or the park’s Times Guide on the day of your visit.
