1. Avocado Toast – Storytellers Cafe – Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel – (pictured)- You’ll find this new starter on the lunch and dinner menus. The dish comes with crushed avocado, lemon-olive oil, parsley, celery leaves, quail eggs and Espellete pepper on top of a slice of grilled sourdough bread.  It has all the protein you need for your busy park days!
