Here is my analysis of the kosher food I was provided at Walt Disney World in Florida in January and February 2020.
At table service restaurants, I always made an advance general reservation online via the Disney website/app, and then, close to my trip, called to request a kosher meal. For each restaurant, I was told a choice of appetizer, entree and dessert, and I chose these all in advance of my trip.
The meat products were all glatt. The dairy products were all OU-dairy (not chalav Yisrael).
Everything arrived at each table properly double wrapped and not tampered with. I was brought wrapped, new, approved silverware. I don’t know if the silverware was immersed. I relied on the kashrut company to determine if this was necessary.
These were my taste preferences:
The beef was excellent, like the kind we normally have in Israel on a holiday. The chicken and the salmon were not bad but not great, both a little dry.
The pizza was too crunchy and oily, but tasted good.
The vegetarian lasagna was gooey and inedible.
The cheese blintzes were excellent. The applesauce they were heated with was boiling hot but good.
The cheese omelet and potatoes were very good.
The vegetables (corn, peas and carrots) were tasty with a good texture.
The bottled orange juice and apple juice were good.
The vegetable soup was excellent, except for the one time it arrived spoiled. I could smell that it was off even before I opened it and then I took a little taste and it was bad. My server agreed that it smelled very off. I was not charged for it, and I was compensated with an extra kosher dessert.
The matzo ball soup had a yummy matzo ball, and the broth was just so-so.
The challah rolls were good (hamotzi).
The chocolate cake had very good frosting, and the cake itself was just so-so.
The parve cheesecake was yummy.
I was usually served or offered more than one kosher beverage with my meal. Either bottled or a Coke product in a clean glass. I was asked if it could be put into a glass.
Twice I had ice cream, at Beaches and Cream on the Boardwalk and at a stand at Disney Springs, pretty sure it was Ben & Jerry’s. At each place they patiently showed me every single item (ice cream flavor, syrup, topping) listed in a book with its kosher sign or they checked the product and came back and told me its kosher sign. They served me exactly the combinations that I requested.
There was a special early morning, separately paid for event that included a buffet breakfast. When there, I explained that I keep kosher, and they substituted a kosher meal for me at no extra charge. They were sorry that they only had kosher lunch items, not breakfast items, but that was fine with me.
At Pop Century’s food court, there was cut fruit for sale. The pineapple was excellent. The melon and grapes weren’t peak, but they were pretty good.
The food courts also sold a few packaged OU candy bars and crackers and cookies, as well as milk and chocolate milk. The coffee is a kosher brand.
At every location, I felt respectfully and cheerfully and efficiently accommodated.
