On our most recent trip to Walt Disney, we were able to grab a reservation at this new dining experience. From the moment we walked in the doors, I was impressed. Our hostess escorted us through the enchanted forest to our table and explained the character meet and greet process. The characters would stop by the table, but we would only meet the Evil Queen when she summoned us.
The meal began with an assortment of mocktail and cocktail options (included on the Disney Dining Plan). My children chose the Transformation Potion... lemonade and a blue "potion" garnished with a rock candy straw. They were thoroughly impressed with their choice.
After our drinks, the shared appetizer plate arrived. Not only was it gorgeous, but also delicious! Winter Squash Bisque, Wicked Shrimp Cocktail and Hunter's Pie were among the beautifully presented options. For the kids, there was an assortment of fruit, veggies and more.
For the main dish, I chose the Prime Rib. While I tend to be a Prime Rib snob and wasn't expecting much, I was blown away. My daughter ordered the mac and cheese, and it was so good, all the adults at the table requested a second order. Our server was very kind and obliged.
The impressive meal ended on a sweet note with a shared dessert platter. This included a "Poison Apple," Gooseberry pie and sponge cake. All were incredible.
Just when we thought the meal couldn't possibly get any better, we were presented with the Hunter's Gift to the Queen....Crackled Maple Popcorn served with a Ganache Heart.
The food alone will have me going back, but the character interactions were spectacular as well. My usual "too cool" nine year old son had a ball with Grumpy and Dopey. The Evil Queen was hysterically dignified, and Snow White was beautiful and oh so kind.
At $55 plus tax per person, many will question whether or not the experience is worth it, but I would undoubtedly say, "Yes!" If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, it's an EXCELLENT use of one of your table service credits.
Divine dining, generous portions, fabulous characters and an incredible atmosphere. This new dining experience has got my vote for favorite character experience at Walt Disney World!
