Citricos Dining Review

2022-06-30T11:50:19-04:00June 30, 2022|Dining, Dining|0 Comments

Venture out to the magnificent Disney resorts for a dinner to remember! One of our favorites (and one we frequent because we love it so much!) is Citricos, located at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. The renovated dining room pays homage to the delightful merriment of Mary Poppins Returns, and the menu features unique Florida cuisine with a Mediterranean influence, crafted by Chef Andres Mendoza!  We definitely suggest the Butter Poached Florida Cobia with Apple Rose for dessert! But don't forget to order Wine! The award-winning wine list includes a host of amazing wines to add to your first-class experience.  Citricos [...]

I booked my trip three [...]
