Before & After: Pork “Chops” at Sunshine Seasons

Sadly, one of the best Quick Service venues on Disney property is starting to make a habit out of disappointing Mrs. All in WDW.  Never a good thing to do, Epcot, I can assure you.

First, she lost her beloved Apple Caramel Crunch.  Don’t know what that is?  I’m not surprised.  It’s gone.  It was also one of the few desserts that she would call worth the calories.  See it at …

Snack Recon: Apple Caramel Crunch

Yummy looking, huh?  Well, it was one of our Epcot morning “go to’s”.  Unfortunately, it disappeared months ago.  Having said that, we keep searching for it!

Of course, Sunshine Seasons is much too good of a spot to discard it simply for the loss of a baked delight.  In fact, one of Mrs. All in WDW’s favorite lunches lives (lived?) there as well.

A few months ago, in ‘Quick Service “Recon”: Sunshine Seasons’, I introduced you to Sunshine’s $13.99 Slow Roasted Pork Chop.  Take a look …


She subbed in a delicious-looking pile of green beans for the restaurant’s advertised mashed potatoes, barbecue sauce, and corn on the cob.  She loved every bite!

Then, we went to the Festival of the Arts last month.  While I was scurrying around World Showcase, she slipped over to Sunshine for the “chop”.

Now billed as a Pork Loin with the very same sides and for the very same price, she received …


My friends, it paled in comparison.  Being boneless, it wasn’t as flavorful.  Plus, it was a shock to see it so different than the serving she had received mere months before.

Like I said, Sunshine Seasons is one of the best Quick Service venues on Disney property.  Mrs. All in WDW and I will be back.  We may even order the pork.

As we know, folks, change is inevitable.  Sometimes, though, depending on the tastes of any particular Guest, change can be quite disappointing.  It’s too bad, but it’s true.

Quick Service “Recon”: Sunshine Seasons

OK, enough with Disney Springs for the moment, yes?  Hah!  I just realized that four of my last five posts were dedicated to “downtown”!  Time to visit somewhere “new”!

On our last trip to “The World”, I couldn’t resist one last cruise through Food & Wine.  Pork sliders, lamb meatballs, scallops, pork belly, and pierogi.  Yum!

Now, Mrs. All in WDW, on the other hand, had something else in mind.  She made a beeline for one of our favorite quick service venues – Future World’s Sunshine Seasons!


What did she have on her menu?  Sunshine’s $13.99 Slow Roasted Pork Chop is one of her overall favorite WDW meals.


Normally served with mashed potatoes, barbecue sauce, and corn on the cob, Mrs. All in WDW chose to sub in a delicious-looking pile of green beans.  She loved it!

My friends, back in 2014, we all elected Sunshine Seasons as our Favorite WDW Parks Quick Service Restaurant!  With meals as good as this, it’s an honor well earned.

When you find yourself in Epcot – hungry for a quick and relatively inexpensive meal – take a stroll in the “sunshine”!  Visit Sunshine Seasons.  You won’t be sorry!
