Complete List of Treats to Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in Disney World

There’s constantly something to celebrate in Disney World, and luckily for us, these celebrations oftentimes come with special food items! Last week, we were celebrating Halfway to Halloween, tomorrow we’ll be celebrating Star Wars Day, and since October 1st, 2021, for 18 months we’ll be celebrating Disney World’s 50th Anniversary!

You’ll also find a Tuna Poke Bowl over at the Nomad Lounge if you’re hungry for more than dessert.

Morimoto Asia serves up some delicious eats year-round, but in celebration of AANHPI, there will be a special burger on the menu in May: the Morimoto Asia Loco, which is a house blend burger with A-5 Wagyu and Filet Mignon, served over a sizzling rice bowl, topped with a sunny side up cage-free egg and teriyaki mushroom gravy.
