Downtown Disney Food Trucks

If you needed any proof that the food truck trend has legs — or really big tires, if you will — you need look no further than Downtown Disney, where the WDW culinears have dispatched a new fleet. And not just Disney — Wolfgang Puck Cafe has its own vehicle, parked, oddly, just outside its front door.

I experienced a couple of the new trucks while strolling around the Festival of the Masters (which, on a separate note, was really disappointing from an artistic standpoint this year). The Puckmobile was the first one I came across, though it is billed as Truckeria Rolling Tacos.

(And by the way, according to Local Yolk’l’s Facebook page, they use only local (duh) eggs from cage-free chickens. They also claim the chickens are happy, but that’s so hard to verify.)
