French Fry Diary 396: The Friar's Nook, Magic Kingdom


This place has haunted me since our last visit to Walt Disney World. I had gotten a few recommendations for the homemade potato chips at this window in the wall counter service place in the Magic Kingdom called The Friar's Nook. When I looked it up I saw they also had Teriyaki chicken nuggets and that sounded great to me so I figured I had to try it. Sadly the night we finally made it to the Magic Kingdom, it rained very hard and many places, The Friar's Nook included, had closed down for the night. I determined to get there next time.

Here's next time (this was in March). As you can see from the photo, they are closed. I asked a Cast Member who told me that The Friar's Nook is only open during the summer (and apparently when it's not raining as well). As I stood there in disbelief with sweat pouring off of me, it took a serious reality check for me to realize that in Florida, just because it's ninety-six degrees out, that doesn't mean it's summer. I raised my fists to sky and shouted "Friar's Nook!" William Shatner style. I will have you and your homemade potato chips someday, this I swear...

We will be back there in June or July 2013. I too have sworn an oath to taste yon homemade potato chips from the NOOK. You forget sir, we were there that fateful day when it rained. Alas. I had actually feared when they dismantled Snow White's Scary Adventure (the ride) the Friar's Nook would be history. Tis good to see it has not made it to Yesterland (yet).
