Jaleo, Chef Jose Andres’ restaurant in Disney Springs, is taking over the sidewalk at the shopping district’s West Side for a Paella Block Party next month.
UPDATE – 03/13/20: As a result of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Jaleo’s Paella Block Party is being rescheduled to a later date this fall.
This first-ever block party, happening on March 21, will celebrate the restaurant’s one-year anniversary. Guests will have the chance to try four different festival paellas and enjoy unlimited tapas, including Jaleo’s signature cones, gazpacho shooters, chicken croquetas, and chistorra envuelta en patata frita (spicy chorizo wrapped in crispy potato).
The party’s all-inclusive tickets also include Spanish wines, sangria, cocktails, and oysters “gin and tonic.” There will also be traditional Flamenco dancers, a Porrón contest, a live DJ, a photo booth, and more.
Early Bird tickets are $75 for the all-inclusive option (only available for guests 21 and older), and $40 for food and non-alcoholic beverages. Kids ages 10 and younger can attend for free. Prices will go up on Feb. 24, so be sure to buy early if you plan on going!
