Attendees can now enjoy authentic Spanish cuisine with a contemporary flair at the all new restaurant Jaleo by José Andrés. As the largest of five Jaleo locations, this acclaimed restaurant is a great place for meeting and convention attendees to enjoy an extensive assortment of tasty tapas and unique cocktails like Salt Air Margaritas during their down time.

Located at Disney Springs, this new restaurant is conveniently located a few minutes away via complimentary transportation from our convention resorts. The entire restaurant is representative of Andrés roots, including the inviting exterior which was designed to resemble Andrés’ wife’s favorite vegetable: an artichoke. Attendees will feel immersed into Spanish culture upon entering this vibrant and dynamic, multi-level space. With indoor and outdoor semi-private dining spaces, the flexible layout can accommodate groups with a variety of seating options. From authentic Spanish floor tiles to signature foosball tables and a bar overlooking an oversized mural of a matador, each detail was carefully planned to keep guests captivated. 

Croquetas de pollo, classic Spanish chicken fritters are among the most popular dishes. These tasty bite sized treats are served on a pillow (a nod to the pillow and glass slipper scene in the classic Disney movie, Cinderella). Each dish is accompanied by an interesting story. The delectable tapas are perfect for attendees to share. The famous wood fired paella, which is visible from the dining room, is also among the spotlight dishes. Chef Andrés helped his father cook paella as a child and mastered the art of controlling the heat from the open fire which is key in creating the perfect consistency. 

The flavorful sangria and premier selection of Spanish wines complement the appetizing dishes. The combination of these delicious flavors will transport your taste buds to Spain. The scrumptious desserts like pan con chocolate are a perfect way to end the meal. 

For a quick bite while on the go or in between meetings, experience the same delicious flavors by visiting Pepe by Jose Andrés, a quick service venue adjacent to Jaleo. Enjoy a wide variety of options from sandwiches, gazpacho and seasonal salads. You can even indulge in the famous sangria that is served at Jaleo.
