Veggie sides and flatbread at Magic Kingdom's Columbia Harbour HouseThere’s something cooking at Disney’s Magic Kingdom ® and if you’ve been hoping to bone up on your greens and vegetable intake while visiting the park this summer now you can! Magic Kingdom ® is proud to present some new scrumptious side dishes that taste so good you won’t believe they’re actually good for you!

Columbia Harbour House in Liberty Square has added fresh broccoli as a side option for any sandwich or entrée. That is in addition to the already popular and healthy menu options of hummus and broccoli slaw and grilled salmon with broccoli. At Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Café in Frontierland, diners can now enjoy corn on the cob as well as lettuce, tomato, onions, and more for your burger or sandwich at the fixin’s bar. Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café in Tomorrowland has added a cucumber salad and fresh green beans to that pair perfectly with any of their turkey or grilled chicken sandwiches and Tommorowland Terrace Restaurant has upped their veggie choices by adding a side of roasted vegetables to their other new dish, the delicious lobster roll.

If you’re a pizza lover looking to cut back on the calories but without losing all of the taste, you’ll be happy to know that Magic Kingdom ® has also added several new and somewhat healthier pizza flatbread options at Pinocchio Village Haus. And just because these pizzas may be a little leaner on bread doesn’t mean they lack in flavor. Guests can satisfy their pizza cravings with such flatbread choices as the barbecue chicken flatbread made up of chicken, red onions, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, and a mango barbecue sauce. Or they can enjoy the flavors of Italy with the Caprese flatbread with plum tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, a blend of crumbled mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, balsamic glaze, and fresh basil. And if you’re more of a traditional cheese and/or pepperoni pizza lover, Pinocchio Village Haus offers those flatbreads as well.

And speaking of new menu items at Magic Kingdom ® coming this holiday season, the new Fantasyland area of the park will welcome the highly-anticipated Be Our Guest Restaurant with tons of new and inventive lunch and dinner choices all made from simple, fresh ingredients and all with a little French twist to give you the full effect of dining in France. Stay tuned for more details on the Be Our Guest Restaurant and its new menu options.
