Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Food Guide for Walt Disney World.

This May, both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort are showcasing Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month with an array of delightful bites and sips to help you join in on the celebrations. And I’ve got all of them for you!  

The talented culinary teams have drawn inspiration from various cultures and cuisines, and infused some of their own, personal flair into these dishes. With new and limited-time treats, like the Yuzu Lemonade Coffee at Aunt Cass Café and the Strawberry Boba Milk Tea Petit Cake from Amorette’s Patisserie, as well as items you can indulge in all year long, such as Beef Birria Ramen from Lucky Fortune Cookery, there are plenty of ways to celebrate these cultures through flavor, anytime at Disney Parks.  

I think it’s time we jump into this year’s Foodie Guide to Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, don’t you?
