Food Trucks Are Coming

Visted Disney World last week... I do live in Florida, so I visit often as I can.. Stopped at Marketplace Disney and there are two food trucks out front adjacent to the World Of Disney Entrance. They are clearing the area where Pollo Campero used to sit This will be where the food trucks new home will be. I think there will four trucks in alll, and maybe more in the future. Here are some pix of the broushure and work area. Looks like we will have some new eats to enjoy...

They have been advertising this for a while now. My only hope is that they will change up the food trucks every so often or bring in some outside food trucks. My guess is probably not but it would be nice.

Actually, the food trucks are going in the grassy area next to Bongos. They've been showing up in different locations at DTD for the past year or so. The construction wall of the grassy area has concept art for the future home of the Food Trucks.

I cannot wait. It will be nice. Especially to see food offerings that only normally show up during the food and wine festival.

The concept of having food trucks in DTD is intriguing but I fear that the end result will not be as positive. Normally food trucks are relatively slow for service, have only one service window and only operate for several hours at a time. If this is the case they will not do well here where there is a large demand for counter service foods. Combining that with the fact that each truck only has 3 menu items for many families are going to have to go to several trucks to satisfy everyone it could rapidly becoming logistics nightmare. They work well in urban settings where they usually operate for a several hours during lunchtime and then maybe again in the evening. Here where the demand is much more spread out it seems like fixed location restaurants are a better option. I'm sure Disney sees it as a cheap way out!

I am a little taken aback by this. What kind of food will they serve?

Food trucks are very popular right now, and not the lunch trucks you're thinking of. Many towns have food truck round ups or food truck nights. I've been to the ones in Celebration as well as in downtown Windermere. Generally five to ten food trucks show up and the food is restaurant quality. The DTD food trucks each represent one of the four WDW theme parks and the cuisine that can be found in each theme park. These are great options for a quick bite to eat and I'm glad they will finally have a permanent home rather than popping up in random areas of DTD.

I work in Wash, DC and they have a APP that let's you know what food truck will be at what location. It really helps finding your favorite truck. Hope they will have a APP that allows us to see what truck will be in the Springs on that given day. Also it would be nice if they rotated them to different parks. In DC food trucks are becoming a real big hit and the food is top notch.

I was excited about this when I first heard of it, but now that I see the menu it really doesn't appeal to me. Except for the beef sliders and lobster roll. Even so, I don't think those two items alone would draw me back to DTD.
