All of the Disney trucks have limited menus so that food can be in the guests’ hands in a timely manner. The Disney trucks at the event are Namaste Cafe, inspired by the flavors of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and offering items such as butter chicken and tandoori shrimp; Superstar Catering, offering favorites from Disney’s Hollywood Studios such as Margherita flatbread; Fantasy Fare, with popular tastes from Magic Kingdom parks all over the world, including sticky chicken and waffles and Disneyland’s famous corn dog; and World Showcase of Flavors, serving pierogies and grass-fed beef sliders inspired by the theme park’s many festivals. “We don’t see the food trucks as a waning trend,” said Kleinschmidt. “It’s going to continue to grow as people are continually inspired to seek out new flavors from here and around the world.” The Downtown Disney event, which is from 5 to 10 p.m., will be staged on the event lawn near House of Blues and Cirque du Soleil .
