Toledo Review - A Tale of Two Tapas


I have dined at Toledo twice. Shortly after Grand Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs opened in 2019, I ate there with my mom, and most recently with my fellow agent Maci during our visit for Magic Kingdom’s 50th Anniversary.

Located on the 16th floor, the atmosphere at this dinner only restaurant is just lovely. Floor to ceiling windows with tasteful décor offer lots of light. You will get a view of all the parks, but some are certainly better than others depending on which area of the restaurant you dine in. Even if you aren’t facing the windows, the ambiance of the orange and pink stain glass on the ceiling and greenery from the trees in the restaurant are a welcome sight.
Toledo is self described as serving Tapas, Steak, and Seafood. I ended up only ordering tapas and drinks both times I dined here. On my first visit, my mom and I weren’t too hungry and on my most recent visit, they were unable to serve us the special 50th Anniversary dish because it was technically the day before. Alas! In 2019, we ordered what is now half of the Pintxos, Pan con Tomate (not pictured, and neither of us were a fan) and the Tequila Daisy.
We enjoyed the 'Tortilla Española' Spanish Potato Omelet and Valdeón Blue Cheese with Fig and Honey, but we didn’t enjoy sharing these adorably sized bites. Yes, it’s tapas - we could have just ordered more. The pintxos was the star for me food wise. Each bite was bright and full of flavor. You can now find them as a side dish. The Tequila Daisy was refreshing on a warm day.

Even though we weren’t terribly hungry when we arrived, we still felt that the portions were pretty small for the price compared to options elsewhere. Regardless, my mom loved the views and we had a wonderful time trying a new restaurant together.

When Maci and I sat down we immediately knew we wanted the Spaniard for two. We also ordered some drinks. I ordered the Tequila Daisy again and Maci ordered the Sangria Martini. While I certainly enjoyed the same drink (I clearly have a type. Spoilers: it’s tequila), the sangria was just a little bit better.
The Spaniard for Two is Toledo’s charcuterie board. Everything on it was delicious! Well, everything we tried. Full disclosure- neither Maci or I like olives, and we found that out after the board arrived. We both incorrectly assumed the other person would appreciate the extra. The way they introduced every item on the board as it was set on our table made me feel like we were in for a treat. Many times when I enjoy cheese and meats at a restaurant in this style, I feel pretty confident that I could replicate something similar at home. For this board, I don’t know that I could say that for most of the meats. Every combo that we had was a delight!
I would recommend Toledo for a date night, but with a caveat. As much as we enjoyed our time here, the bill was a little under $100 for the Spaniard for Two and three drinks plus tip. This isn’t particularly steep for a delicious meal for two at Walt Disney World, but as we spent similar amounts for significantly more food that was just as good if not better, it made me less interested in going back. That doesn’t mean I won’t. I would definitely like to try some of their entrees, and perhaps then my mind will be changed. In the meantime, this one isn’t quite going to make my “must do” Disney dining list.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne
