What We HOPE Disney Serves at Its NEW Snuggly Duckling Tavern Opening in June

Published: February 24, 2024

Over in Disney World, we were SUPER excited to learn that Rapunzel finally got some recognition in Magic Kingdom.


Of course, all she really got was a tower that we can see in the distance, plus some bathrooms. Granted, we LOVE those bathrooms, but Rapunzel needs more love! Well, she’s finally getting an entire LAND as part of Tokyo DisneySea’s NEW expansion, Fantasy Springs. That land is going to have the one thing we’ve always dreamed of — A Snuggly Duckling! But what will be on the menu there? Well, we’re taking a wild guess!

What we know about The Snuggly Duckling so far is that it will be a counter service restaurant where the “rough-and-tumble crowd gathers,” so we assume it will look a lot like the Snuggly Duckling in Tangled and Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure. Disney also said that guests would be able to eat in a “variety of atmospheric dining areas,” which we hope means lots of references to both the movie and TV series.


But what kind of menu will this pub have? Well, we decided we’d put together a list of things we would like to see on the menu, and it all starts with Rapunzel’s favorite food, Mother Gothel’s Hazelnut Soup. Now, the Internet is FULL of recipes for this soup, but its primary ingredients are parsnips and hazelnuts. We’re thinking of a creamy soup with woodsy flavors.


You know what would go great with that soup? BREAD! So what about a Braided Bread (get it? like Rapunzel’s long hair)? Maybe even throw a few flower decorations on there to match Punzie’s long braid?

For those who’ve watched Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure, you’ll know that Flynn Rider’s BFF, Lance Strongbow, is ALL about the food. And although we often see him with a turkey leg in his hand, we’re going to say NO to more turkey legs…


Instead, there’s a moment in one episode when he asks if anyone wants to get Kebabs. So we think some Lance Kebabs would fit perfectly on the Snuggly Duckling menu.


This next one is a little on the nose, but Tangled Spaghetti and Meatballs should be one of the entrees because spaghetti gets TANGLED — get it? Plus, it’s an entree that even kids will enjoy.

Rapunzel’s favorite weapon of choice is a skillet, so Disney HAS to do a skillet dish. What about a Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie?


Since this is a counter service restaurant, maybe something like the skillet cookie you can get at Chili’s with a scoop of ice cream on top?


One of the Snuggly Duckling’s denizens, Attila, had a dream to become the best cupcake baker in Corona. He even shows off a batch of his creations to Rapunzel. So Attila’s Cupcake should absolutely be on the menu, right? HE HAD A DREAM, PEOPLE! In the series, he reaches that dream and opens Attila the Bun.


In Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure, Monty owns Monty’s Sweet Shop, and we think some sweet concoctions from his shop should be sold at the Snuggly Duckling. Wouldn’t it be fun to have an assortment of homemade candy? Let’s add Monty’s Sweets to the menu!


Now, let’s talk about drinks. As the Snuggly Duckling IS a pub, we expect there to be some beers and ciders on draft. But it could also use a signature cocktail that we’re going to call Sundrop Lemonade. We’re thinking something like a Lemon Drop Martini sweetened with honey. There could even be a non-alcoholic version that’s just lemonade and honey.

So those are just some ideas WE have for the Snuggly Duckling. Disney — if you’re paying attention, call us! 🤣 Fantasy Springs is set to open on June 6th, 2024, so we’ll probably have the actual menu before then.
