New Disney Springs and EPCOT restaurant reviews – Burger Deluxe, Sprinkles, La Hacienda de San Angel

Disney Springs recently opened and we headed over with a large group to try Burger Deluxe and then Sprinkles cupcakes for dessert.  Our trip to Disney Springs was a party of 8 so we could get many different varying opinions.

Burger Deluxe Disney Springs

Burger Deluxe at Disney Springs

Disney Springs has a bunch of new dining options and we took our large party there to try and few for this weeks Mouse Chat Disney Dining Reviews.  Burger Deluxe – This is a specialty burger restaurant where you walk up to order at the counter and then pick up your burger when it is ready.

We took our party of 8 here just a few days after Burger Deluxe opened.  The burgers were all ordered as Medium, but came out raw in the middle and blood on the buns.  All except for one that was order well done came out raw in the center.  You could smell the raw meat.  We returned several burger and it took over 25 minutes to get a replacement burger.  After waiting 25 minutes for a burger everyone else was done eating.  Turn around service at Burger Deluxe was terrible.  I have to say that the management was very friendly and Burger Deluxe we think shows promise moving forward.  Hopefully the issues we all experience were opening week growing pains and we look forward to trying Burger Deluxe again once it is established.

The meal per person was about a $14 meal.

Pros:
Friendly staff and management
Our review was opening week, so things might be better now.

Cons:
Burgers came out bloody / raw in the middle
Turn around time to get a replacement burger was slow
The fries are around $5 and $8 for a very small amount of fries, so we would recommend skipping these.

Sprinkles Cupcakes

We tried the Sprinkles cupcake ATM and videoed the experience on our Mouse Chat Periscope channel.  We got a chocolate chocolate cupcake out of the Sprinkles ATM.  The frosting was good but the Sprinkles cupcakes in the ATM and in the Sprinkles store we found to be dry.  But the line for Sprinkles was crazy long.  So people are enjoying them at $6 each.  We would just like them to be moist.

Listen to our full Mouse Chat show here for our Disney World restaurant reviews.

We also went over to EPCOT for dinner and this was one of our top Disney World dining experiences!
Epcot – Mexico – La Hacienda de San Angel

We went to Lauren’s Birthday to La Hacienda at EPCOT with a party of 10.  We had the best time.  Villa was our waiter and he was incredible.  The service, food, decor all added up to the perfect storm.  AMAZING!  We even friended Villa on Facebook.  The service was so good it was like a signature dining experience.  This is also a perfect place to watch Illuminations from.  We watched one of the best Illuminations shows from La Hacienda.

To get the details of this dining experience so you can book it also, please take a moment and listen to our Mouse Chat podcast above.

  1. Glad to hear the honest restaurant review.

    On our next family trip to WDW, in January, we are planning to eat at one of the restaurants in Disney Springs on our first night.

    Is there a restaurant at DS that you could recommended for a family with small children? Our daughters will be 4.5 and 18 months at the time of the trip.

    Thanks and keep the podcasts coming!

  3. Thanks for the reviews! I thought it was funny how everyone seemed to complain about Burger Deluxe, but yet would be willing to try it again. I felt like I was listening to my family talk about a Disney restaurant, we’d do the same thing. Y’all made me smile and just more excited for my own trip.

    • Hey Shelly,

      Chris just went back to Burger Deluxe and it was perfect. It sounds like they have fixed their opening week issues.

  4. The Hacienda de San Angel in Epcot is one of my favorites! My wife and I ate there on our honeymoon three years ago and it was a must when we were planning out trip for this coming December! It really does have a great view of Illuminations. We stopped by the restaurant earlier in the day before our reservation and requested a seat closer to the windows. They were happy to accommodate our request and it was one of the best dinning experiences we had on that trip. Also, the popcorn ice cream is amazing!

    Sucks to hear about D-Luxe Burger not being a better experience. I was looking forward to trying it on our coming trip. Were they busy when you went? Do you think it is worth trying? I’m also interested in trying Aristocrepes, so maybe I should just do that instead.

    • Hi Bart,

      Chris went to D-Luxe Burger a few days ago to try it again and it was perfect. So it looks like they have worked out the kinks. I’m glad to hear you also enjoyed the Mexican restraunt at EPCOT, I’ll have to try the popcorn ice cream, sounds interesting.

  5. I was not very impressed with the food at La Hacienda. I remember thinking it was just okay but nothing memorable (except the corn ice cream; that was ah-may-zing). I do agree with you on the staff. Everyone there was very kind. I wouldn’t say above and beyond but they were nice.

    p.s. I am also a food snob that loves authentic Mexican so I may be skewed.

    • Hi Stephanie,

      Yeah there are several levels to Mexican for sure and La Hacienda might fall in the more casual American Mexican vs something in CA close to the boarder.

  6. I have to disagree about the San Angel restaurant inside Mexico. It sounds like you had an amazing experience at La Haciuenda, but my 17 year old put San Angel number one on his Dining Plan list. We love watching the boats grow through and the dark atmosphere made to simulate sunset in Mexico. The food is great, in my opinion, and I like having options closer to traditional expectations. I will add La Hacienda to my must list based on your podcast, but I have to advocate for good old San Angel. Thanks for keeping me in the loop with all things mouse.

    • Thanks Lipi,

      I am glad you liked to the San Angel’s at EPCOT’s Mexico pavilion. I love the atmosphere in there. It’s that perfect nighttime setting with the boats going by on the water like you said.

  7. I just recently discovered the show and have been listening nonstop. I went to WDW for the first time in January for 8 days by myself (long story short it was an ideal time to go and I couldn’t coordinate schedules with family). I wish I had known about the podcast then! But I still managed to plan a pretty awesome trip.
    I’m going to Disneyland next month and I’m wondering if there’s any news about more restaurants coming to the parks? One of the big draws for me is food, but Disneyland/DCA don’t seem to have a big variety of table service restaurants.

    • Oh Josiah,

      Disneyland has AWESOME table service restaurants. Look at our past Mouse Chat podcast on Disneyland. We have eaten I think at everyone several times even. Also please go to PixieVacations.com and do a quick quote request for Disneyland and pick a Pixie or Mouse Chatter from the list. They will personally help you plan your trip and can go over all the dining that they personally have tried so you can learn from their experiences. And when you book your Disneyland or Disney World trip with us our service is free, so everything is a bonus at no added cost.

      To start, I’d look at the Disneyland resorts. Pretty much all the table service at the Disneyland hotels is fabulous.

      Thanks
      Steve

  9. Hey guys! Loved the show BUT I’m enjoying all your live Facebook posts even more! They’ve given me a little dose of magic while I’m laid up in bed with strep throat, I’ve got serious Disney envy right now. Our family has had a rough two weeks: my dad was in an major 7 car accident caused my a drunk driver (NEVER EVER drink and drive folks), same day as my dad’s accident my youngest got hand foot and mouth disease THEN his sores got infected, on the way home from that doctors appointment my transmission went. A few days later I got strep and on the way to that appointment I got a flat tire in my husbands car. Through all that your show has just given me multiple reasons to smile and anxiously await our return to the The World later this year! Thank you all for the laughs and smiles when life is kicking my butt!

    Lisa, your picture in front of Ample Hills Creamery was amazing, you looked beautiful.

    Chris your snarky humor makes you my spirit animal.

    • Hi Jennifer,

      I hope you feel better soon.
      Oh the photo at Ample Hills Creamery on the Mouse Chat Facebook page is Chris. Chris also does a lot of the Facebook live and Periscope live broadcasts as well as our Mouse Chat reporter on the ground, Mandy.
      We plan on doing more Facebook Live and Periscope videos from Walt Disney World, so keep an eye out for them.

  10. Hello! My friends and I are thinking about taking a road trip to Walt Disney World from NJ! What is the best way to go about doing this, because we’re all college students. I love your podcasts so keep up the great work 🙂

    • Hi Cece,

      A road trip to Walt Disney World! Well I slept many times on I-Drive in a fast food parking lot in my car. When I had a few bucks I’d get a night at a super cheap hotel on 192 or iDrive. As a collage kid that just needs a place to sleep for a few hours this worked great. These places are not really that clean but for a road trip you don’t need that much sleep. Just be safe and eat cheap / stay cheap. You can do the five star hotels and stay on Disney property when you have a job and 401k.
