While Visiting Disney, take me to Bahama Breeze Please

Like most travelers we fly into the Orlando International airport and take Disney's Magical Express to the Disney World Resort. When we get in line for the Magical Express, we can already feel the Disney Magic! Of course relying solely on Disney transportation can be a little limiting if you ever want to venture of property. We don't go off property much, so we don't usually mind.


This past trip we had the opportunity to get off property  and explore a little bit of the Lake Buena Vista area. One place that we stopped was Bahama Breeze on Vineland Avenue ( this is considered the Lake Buena Vista Location. There is another location on International Drive).  I am so glad that we stopped here for lunch. This was easily one of our best meals throughout the trip.

We walked right in and there was no wait if we wanted to sit outside on the lanai. This was perfect since it was an extremely gorgeous day out.


For starters, the spinach dip and chips. I also had this refreshing beverage but I forget what it was called. I know it was a "Sunset" something or other but couldn't find it on the menu.


I had the  Grilled Chicken with Cilantro Crema ( that is not a typo, it is crema, not cream) . It came with mashed potatoes and roasted corn topped with a blend of three melted cheeses drizzled with cilantro crema sauce!   This was amazing! Scott had the Key West Fish Tacos which he said was fantastic as well.
 
For dessert the waiter suggested this cake ( I think it was some sort of rum cake). I don't usually order dessert but since we were on vacation I thought "Why not".
 
The prices for this restaurant were very reasonable and more like what we would pay at a restaurant at home.   I know Bahama Breeze is a chain restaurant but we don't have one extremely close to where I live, so I was very pleased with this experience.  I'm thinking I might make the extra effort to travel the distance to get to one of these restaurants in my own state now. Yup, we do have 2 have them!   ~M
 
             Have you ever been to Bahama Breeze? If so, I hope you had a pleasant experience too!

  1. Never been to a Bahama Breeze, but it has to be cheaper than on property Disney restaurants. Glad you found a new favorite!

  6. We have a Bahama Breeze right here in the NW suburbs of Chicago! It is a treat to go there, especially in the middle of winter. We have also been to the one in Tampa. Good recommendation!

  7. I haven't heard of Bahama Breeze before but your meal sounds awesome! My mom has a house in FL and I always laugh when she says she is out on her lanai, in NE, its a porch or deck! :)

    I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!

    1. Hmm, Perhaps it's only a lanai if it is covered? IDK

  9. We went there before my first half. I had the fruit salad with grilled chicken, which was perfect! For a little more carbs, I did eat some of the flatbread pizza appetizer.

  13. If anyone stays off property closer to the Orange Lake Resort area, there is a Bahama Breeze on 192/Irlo Bronson highway in the same plaza as the Target, as well.
