Disney World now serves matzah ball soup

Have you always dreamed of eating a hot pastrami sandwich while waiting on a mile-long line for a rollercoaster? Well, you’re in luck!

(At least you’re in luck if you don’t care that the sandwich isn’t kosher.)

This winter, Disney World is introducing its very first Jewish kitchen with all the fan favorites: matzah ball soup, black and white cookies, potato knishes, and more.

L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen is the newest addition to Disney’s annual Epcot Festival of Holidays, and we couldn’t be more excited. From November 18 through December 30, you can visit 12 booths that offer a different taste of seasonal holidays from around the world.

If you’re not in the mood for traditional Jewish cuisine, you can pick up a bowl of Tres Leches Rice Pudding with Pumpkin Seeds from the Feast of the Three Kings booth, or Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl from the Bavaria Holiday Kitchen.

The festival isn’t the only time you can indulge in authentic cuisine. Year round, Epcot hosts restaurants and booths featuring foods from 12 different countries, including China, Germany, Italy, and Mexico. Notably, Israel is not on the list… yet.

Here’s the full menu:

• Pastrami on Rye with House-made Pickles and Deli Mustard
• Potato Knish with Herb Sour Cream
• Chicken and Matzah Ball Soup
• Black and White Cookie
• Egg Cream: Milk, Chocolate and Seltzer
• Brooklyn Brewery Brooklyn Lager
• Blue Cosmo cocktail

Chanukah comes early this year. It starts on December 2, which raises a question: why aren’t latkes included on the Jewish kitchen’s menu? Alas, we’ll take what we can get.
