ABC Commissary is a counter service location in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
And a brand new fashion of fast-casual dinner service has simply made its debut at this location.
Although not required in the intervening time (and we’ll speak about this in higher element later), visitors can now make Advance Eating Reservations to e book their dinner at ABC Commissary. Nevertheless, the spot has retained its Fast Service standing (very similar to breakfast and lunch at Be our Visitor Restaurant in Magic Kingdom, which additionally accepts reservations for these Fast Service meals).
So we thought we’d cease by to take a look at the “new” meal and discover the ins-and-outs of ABC Commissary’s fast-casual dinner.
ABC Commissary simply reopened from a latest refurbishment, and the reopening delivered refreshed tables, chairs, and carpeting within the location.
Nevertheless, for the needs of at this time’s go to, we’ll talk about environment with reference to how the brand new fashion of dinner service impacts the overall circulate of the meal. Visitors arriving for dinner will test in on the stand as seen above, then proceed to the counter to order very similar to you’d at any counter service location.
After inserting your order, you obtain a Place Tracker so your meal can “discover” you wherever you seat your self within the restaurant and be delivered as soon as it’s prepared.
Once more, it’s very very similar to breakfast or lunch at Be Our Visitor Restaurant, or different fast-casual places like D-Luxe Burger in Disney Springs.
We did expertise a couple of kinks because the Solid adjusts to the brand new service fashion. For example, we had been imagined to be handed cups for the newly open refillable drink stations (Hooray for refills, by the best way!), however these had been forgotten so we needed to ask about them. However small cases like that can doubtless work themselves out rapidly in these opening weeks.
Talking of these beverage stations, lids weren’t out there for drink cups. However we had been knowledgeable that they’re — as of press time — nonetheless out there by request. Paper straws had been out there on the drink stations.
Different modifications embody the provision of reusable utensils.
Observe that there are stations in place for bussing your personal desk if you want, however primarily since it’s customary to take action in the course of the common lunch service. However Solid Members additionally acquire plates and such within the eating space throughout dinner.
Once more, dinner at ABC Commissary now accepts Advance Eating Reservations, however we had no hassle getting in as a walk-in… not now, anyway. In these starting weeks, the truth is, they’ve solely opened a restricted variety of reservations whereas getting used to the brand new system. Nevertheless, as soon as the crowds in Hollywood Studios vastly enhance after the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on August 29th, an Advance Eating Reservation might be wanted.
The menu for dinner has remained pretty regular since our final go to to ABC Commissary.
The one change with reference to entrees is new Pot Roast has changed the Braised Beef and Enchilada Platter.
And a brand new Watermelon Margarita has joined the specialty drinks.
The brand new slow-cooked Pot Roast is served atop root-vegetable mashed potatoes with brown gravy and crispy onion straws. It’s plated on a ceramic dish versus paper, which is a pleasant contact.
And it’s, in a phrase, scrumptious. The juicy, tender beef is additional enhanced by the flavorful gravy.
The crispy onion straws add a very good little bit of tasty crunch.
And the mashed potatoes are full with carrots and parsnips (the foundation veggies) to lend some uniqueness to the serving.
It’s definitely a very good dish and above par for what you’d anticipate from a typical fast service meal. However… properly, let’s discover our remaining ideas in our subsequent part.
Taking the Pot Roast for instance of the ABC Commissary dinner choices, it’s almost $17 so it is a bit more costly than most fast service entrees round Disney World. This does work out properly in favor of visitors using the Disney Eating Plan, because the meal maximizes use of a Fast Service Credit score. And so, for visitors on the Plan, this new meal will get a thumbs up! Nevertheless, visitors paying out of pocket might need to follow counter service choices within the park corresponding to Woody’s Lunch Field and Backlot Specific that are inexpensive and supply extra enjoyable theming, as well.
We undoubtedly do, although, need to give some further credit score to ABC Commissary total. As a result of even past the brand new Pot Roast dish, the meals choices and high quality right here have a lot improved over the previous couple of years. And because the modifications have taken place, issues are solely trying up!
