We Began the Day at Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes
ArtQuench Founder Stacia Gates
Come Kick It
Treat yourself to mouthwatering meals amidst décor that harkens back to the days of old-school hip-hop and pop.
Bring the heartiest of appetites to Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes, a brand-new bistro in the Downtown Disney District featuring quality food for all. An homage to the great American luncheonettes of our childhoods, Black Tap keeps it real with a fun, familiar, New York City vibe, circa the ‘80s and ‘90s.
Sink your teeth into a savory selection of craft burgers, including the award-winning Greg Norman—one heavenly half-pound of wagyu beef, house buttermilk-dill, blue cheese and arugula. Like nothing you’ve ever tasted, this fan favorite won “People’s Choice” at the New York City Wine & Food Festival for 3 years in a row! Other options include chicken sandwiches, wings, salads, vegan sandwiches and veggies as well as a kids’ menu.
Top it all off with Black Tap’s classic milkshakes as well as craft cocktails and beers from regional brewers for adults 21 and over with a valid ID.
And of course lots of shopping!!!
Join in a Cherished Disney Tradition
Get bitten by the pin-trading bug: Buy, trade with Cast Members and fellow collectors, and watch your collection grow!
Whether you’re an avid Disney pin trader or just getting started, this pin-trading location has everything you need, from starter kits to lanyards to carrying cases. If you wish to buy a single pin to remember your trip to the Disneyland Resort, you can do that too; but with an ever-changing selection of more than 60,000 pin designs, you may be hard-pressed to pick just one!
Just a few of the ArtQuench Collection
Here’s how it works:
- Meet a Disney Cast Member wearing a pin-trading lanyard.
- Find a Disney pin with your favorite Disney character, attraction, movie or design.
- Trade your Disney pin with the Cast Member. (It should be a pin the Cast Member does not already have.)
New to pin trading? Get going with a starter set featuring a uniquely themed pin-trading lanyard and 4 Disney pins. Keep some, trade some and interact with Cast Members and Guests from around the world!
Did You Know?
Since the beginning, The Walt Disney Company has offered collectible Disney pins at every one of its parks and resorts around the world. The tradition of Disney pin trading as we know it today was introduced in October 1999, with the launch of the Millennium Celebration.
