This is going to be a great well needed addition to the Dining line up at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Opening June 30, Woody’s Lunch Box will dish up all sorts of sandwiches and sides that blend classic flavor combinations with a modern twist, plus nostalgic soda floats and specialty beverages.

The Concept Development Culinary Director Lenny DeGeorge for Walt Disney World gives his take on what went into creating the new menu.

“Everyone has a special food memory, so it can be tricky putting a modern spin on the favorites,” about the year-long menu development process. “We honored these classic dishes by using the best ingredients to elevate the flavors. How we constructed the sandwiches was important, such as layering the ingredients in a specific order, to maximize textures and flavors. Why have a cold sandwich when you can have a toasted hot, gooey cheese-filled one?” (Source Disney Parks Blog)

Here is a sneak peak into what Woody’s Lunch Box will be packing! Full menu coming soon.
