The Daily Poutine - Disney Springs
One of our favorite places to grab a quick bite is Disney Springs. Disney is continuing to add and update restaurants and carts as they rebrand this shopping location. We love how Disney is looking past adding more hamburger stands and giving guests unique food experiences that they may not get at home.
One of those unique locations, especially for central Florida, is The Daily Poutine. Located behind the Lego store next to World of Disney in the Marketplace, it is a short walk from the Lime Parking Garage.
For those unfamiliar with poutine, it is an amazing amalgamation of fries, cheese curds, and gravy that results in mouth watering by many of our friends from the north. For Disney's take on this Canadian dish, they offer the Classic and 3 variations, Italian, Latin, and French. On this trip, we enjoyed the classic and a frozen watermelon lemonade.
The poutine was made to order with fresh thick cut steak fries, cheese curds, and plenty of brown gravy. As a snack, it was the perfect size to share. (It could have easily been considered our lunch, if we each ordered our own.) The frozen lemonade, featuring Odwalla juices, was perfect for a warm Spring day with just the right amount of sweet watermelon flavor to complement the tartness of the lemonade. We could barely get two sips in as little Rocket Man claimed it as his territory.
There are several tables with umbrellas to sit and enjoy at this location next to a relaxing water fountain and if you are craving something sweet to finish off your meal, Amorette's Patisserie is right next door.
As we are big fans of poutine, we were impressed that Disney held true to the original and used actual cheese curds. If a place is going to skimp on poutine, it would be with the cheese. Because of this, the price may seem high at between 8 and 10 dollars for fries, but the quality of the ingredients make it well worth it in our book. We can't wait to stop here again to try their other takes on this mouthwatering treat.

Tips and Overall Review
- If you are up for something new or are a fan of poutine, this is the place for you! It is one of only two locations that sell poutine on property, the other being Le Cellier. And The Classic Poutine offered at The Daily Poutine is the only traditional poutine offered on property.
- There was more seating available at this location than others we have seen at Disney Springs. So if your feet are tired from a day of shopping, this would be a great place to grab a frozen watermelon lemonade or adult beverage and take a load off.
