All originate from fine-dining and quick-service establishments across the resort.

There's the Breakfast Lasagna, the beloved creation from the Crystal Palace (the Magic Kingdom's greenhouse-inspired Victorian eatery) that layers waffles, pound cake, pancakes, bananas, custard, pastry cream, and berries into one epic bite. And the Batuuan Ronto Wrap from Ronto Roasters at Star Wars: Galaxy Edge in Disney Hollywood Studios, which wraps roasted pork shoulder, grilled sausage, vegetable slaw and peppercorn sauce in a grilled pita wrap.

Other dishes include Tonga Toast (a breakfast classic that's been on the menu at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort since 1971), the Handwich 3.0 (another version of Disney's "Sandwich of the Future"), Epcot's Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup, the crispy-cauliflower Gobi Manchurian from Disney's Animal Kingdom, and the opening-day Orange Bird Flip drink.

There's also a way to make your own drink inspired by Disney's iconic Dole Whip.
