Two new counter service locations have been installed around World Showcase. The venues offer identical menus and seemingly provide more basic offerings to World Showcase - as it has been criticized by some for not offering any basic theme park food like hot dogs. Fussy children are now never far from staple foods of their selective diets.

The first location, Promenade Refreshment, is located to right of World Showcase plaza toward the Canada pavilion.

The building is furnished from opaque blue glass tiles, which gives it a nice glowing effect at night. The menu is basic, but has proven popular in the evening as guests seek locations to watch Illuminations. Sizable lines have already begun to form on busier days.

The second location is near the American Adventure and replaces a plethora of temporary carts and stands which provided concessions for the American Gardens theater. The area is thankfully now uncluttered and the offerings streamlined. The location is called the Fife and Drum Tavern.

Because nothing says "Showcase of the World" like hot dogs. :notamused:

It's fine to have this sort of plain fare available but I like WS because it's a great opportunity to try out new foods.

But ... don't most of the places have a kids menu? Or are they caving to the people who won't eat in Morocco because they don't like sushi? :wink:

:lol: I think this is more for counter service. I think it's obvious what sort of food you'll be getting in the sit down restaurant at the various restaurants in World Showcase but I'm sure there are some who are upset a burger isn't within 10 feet of the Norway pavillion

I am assuming this is more to assuage the Disney Dining Plan hordes.

I'm not real thrilled with this....one of the things I love about World Showcase is that is doesn't offer typical theme park food. In fact it's one of the things I dislike about the Liberty Inn.

Um.... isn't there already a counterservice place at American Adventure that serves the burgers and hot-dog items?

Evidently it wasn't close enough to everything or convenient :roll:

I agree. I wouldn't even think about having a hot dog when I could go to The Mexican CS or whatnot. This could be a benefit to picky kids though.

I had put up a photo of the promenade and menu. I was very disappointed. There are a lot of ways to have good food without it being more junk. Just IMHO! I somehow doubt that the picky kids are eating the turkey legs.

I've actually had more success at the WS trying to get my daughter to try new things because the other options haven't been readily available. So I don't really see this as a good thing.

Okay, I stand corrected - at least one is. :) But I think that the American pavilion is already a big disappointment (as far as food goes). The new stands don't help. The Oklahoma booths for the Food and Wine Festival were very popular, and proved that America does have some good (and higher quality) food that can be done fast.

I still think the American Adventure should have a Table service resturant that serves food from the 50 states

ie.
New England Clam Chowder
Southern Sweet Tea
Texas BBQ
Chicago Style Pizza
Georgia Peach Cobbler
Louisana Gumbo
Philly Cheesesteak

Just some examples from the top of my head and i am sure there are a ton more

I don't think the 50 states, that is a lot of different types of food! But definitely some regional offerings would be wonderful.
