Dining Recon: Cabana Bar and Beach Club at the Dolphin

So, I have a word of advice for you … if you’re planning to attend the opening day and weekend of Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival this coming September, you had better get your room booked.

The festival starts Friday, September 19th, and Mrs. All in WDW and I decided to get our arrangements in place this past weekend.  Sadly, it didn’t matter whether we tried to use the Disney Fall discount or not, there wasn’t much available that didn’t cost a nightly fortune!

Lucky for us, we were able to get a very reasonable rate on an Epcot fireworks view room at the Dolphin.  Which, by the way, brings me to today’s story.

For us, one of Disney’s hidden gems is Cabana Bar and Beach Club at, you guessed it, the Dolphin!

We have been there several times.  Usually perched on a seat at the bar, we really enjoy Cabana’s “your outside, but it doesn’t quite feel like you’re outside” atmosphere.  The food is a little bit pricey, but it’s very good.

Maybe Cabana’s not a “stop in every time you visit WDW” type of place, but it’s certainly worth a try or two!

Here’s a tour of the decor, menu, and cuisine.  I hope you enjoy.  I can tell you one thing, when Mrs. All in WDW and I get there in September, we will!

Trying to be a bit on the adventurous side, I tried the Korean BBQ Beef Sliders.

They were great!

The waffle fries were so crispy and good, we had to order a side.  I just LOVE the presentation!
