    Is the kids mac and cheese at Citricos the same as California Grill? The kids mac and cheese at California Grill is amazing. It doesn’t make sense for our family to go anymore to California Grill with the new menu.

    Hi there, Lori, and welcome back to planDisney! I'm so thankful that you've made us your trusted choice for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning questions! Dining is one of my favorite things to plan, and I love the feeling of securing an Advance Dining Reservation at the restaurants my family loves. If you're seeking out some amazing macaroni and cheese, you and I have a lot in common!

    My fellow planDisney friends know that I'm a big fan of delicious macaroni and cheese (I have shared my own grandmother's recipe with many of them), and we are all in agreement that not all macaroni and cheese is created equally. Even at Walt Disney World Resort, you'll find that there is a lot of variety in this well-loved dish from one restaurant to another. On top of that, these types of dishes are subject to change without notice. At this time, I can't confirm if the macaroni and cheese at Citricos is the same as the one that was on the menu at California Grill. What I can tell you, however, is where to find some amazing versions of this dish!

    • Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe has a comforting, crowd-pleasing yellow macaroni and cheese - my kids inhaled it!
    • The Polite Pig offers a macaroni and cheese side with aged cheddar and breadcrumbs - I have a hard time sharing this.
    • La Hacienda de San Angel has a delicious kids menu macaroni and cheese that features cavatappi in a rich white cheddar sauce.
    And here are some recommendations from my wonderful fellow planDisney friends!

    Lori, I hope that this information is helpful to you, and that you are able find some amazing macaroni and cheese during your next visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop back by planDisney with any other questions you have!

    See you real soon!
