    Tasha from OR Asked

    Hello. We have reservations at Jaleo during our upcoming stay at Disney World. I’ve been looking at the tasting menus that are offered, but have heard everyone at the table has to order them in order for anyone to have one. How does this apply to children?

    Hi Tasha,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I just had to grab your question! A few weeks ago, I celebrated my birthday at Jaleo by José Andres, and honestly, it was one of the best meals I've had in yEARs!

    You are correct, the restaurant offers tasting menus, and they are fantastic! Currently, there is the Jaleo Experience, which is a tour of modern and classic tapas, as well as José's Way, which is a tour of the chef's favorites! When we visited, they also had a special "Magical Menu," which was a tasting flight with six tapas, where we picked from a selection in each category. Regardless of which menu you choose, I highly recommend that you select the tasting menus! They are delicious, the perfect size, and then you don't have to decide on what you are going to eat!

    We visited with our three kiddos, and there was no mention of everyone at the table having to order a tasting menu. The twins ordered off the kid's menu, and our daughter ordered two tapas of her own. My husband and I chose the Magical Menu, and honestly, the kids ate more of the tapas than their meals! The food was that fantastic! My favorite dish was Espinacas a la Catalana (sautéed spinach with pine nuts), the littles loved the Croquetas de pollo, and my husband adored the Jamón Serrano with Manchego cheese!

    Tasha, when you visit, ask for a foosball table! There were a couple of parties seated across from us at them, and they looked like they were having a fabulous time! You can play foosball while you wait for your meal, and continue the game throughout thanks to the glass top!

    I wish you a tasty visit!
