We might have been expecting a bourbon trail through Kentucky, a whiskey trail through Tennessee, a Buffalo wing trail through Buffalo or a wine trail through Santa Barbara.
But this summer, we will find a deliciously different kind of bourbon trail running through somewhere a little unexpected: Disney World! From 1st May to 17th June at the Disney Springs area of the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, there will be 18 restaurants serving drinks and dishes with a splash of bourbon. From cocktails to brisket to bourbon cheese dip at restaurants and from the likes of Art Smith and Rick Bayless, there will be dozens of specials for trying. Additionally, in case we need to keep track of all the bourbon beverages and bites along the way, there’s even a Bourbon Trail passport available from the Disney Springs Welcome Center.
