SAD ONION NEWS: Disney World Just Took It A Step Too Far 🧅

By admin Apr8,2024

Disney World food is changing ALL the time, but sometimes it can be tough to swallow (no pun intended).

Flame Tree Barbecue

Don’t get us wrong — we LOVE when Disney World adds new menu items or seasonal snacks. But sometimes Disney World removes some of our favorite snacks or changes up our favorites in ways that cause us concern. Well, one of our favorite meals in Disney World recently went through a HUGE change, and we’re still trying to decide how we feel about it.

One of our ALL-time favorite snacks (okay, well, it’s really a meal) is the Baked Mac and Cheese with Pulled Pork from Flame Tree Barbecue in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It’s a plate full of baked mac and cheese with delicious barbecue pork topped with onion rings and cole slaw. It’s like all of our favorite things in one dish.

What it used to be…

Well, something BIG has changed about this item — the onion rings are now GONE! There are no more onion rings on this dish. Instead, Disney has just thrown some fried onions on top. Seriously, though, THAT IS NOT THE SAME THING.

No more onion rings

Okay, okay, we’re being a bit dramatic, we know, because we loved those onion rings, but the heart of this snack was always the creamy mac and cheese and the barbecued pork, so we’re happy to report those flavors STILL deliver. The crispy onions, along with the cole slaw, also add some nice texture. These basic fried onions (which are NOT onion rings), though, don’t add much flavor.

It’s still tasty, though

So what we’re saying is, if you loved those onion rings, this could disappoint you. Otherwise, it’s still a solid snack that’s rich and juicy, and yes, it’s still delicious. But it can be tough to deal with when Disney messes with something that did not need messing with, so there’s that.

If you want to try this new version of the Mac and Cheese yourself, it’s available now for $12.49. There’s plenty of it and like we said, this is really more meal than snack, so it’s a good value, too.
