Be Our Guest – Dinner Review

Be Our Guest – Dinner Review – New Fantasyland – Magic Kingdom

Be Our Guest Restaurant – Breakfast Review – Magic Kingdom

Be Our Guest restaurant was by far the most anticipated Disney restaurant that I remember – It was the “E – Ticket attraction” in what was dubbed The Largest Expansion in Magic Kingdom History – Be Our Guest has been unique since it opened in may ways however one of the most unique things about it is that it is the first Disney restaurant to offer Counter Service food at lunch and table service food at Dinner -

Needless to say I had extremely high expectations for the restaurant and I can say without a doubt that every meal I have had here has either met or surpassed my expectations so therefore when I heard that it was going to be testing a Counter Service Breakfast I knew immediately that I had to try it!

Be Our Guest was possibly the most anticipated restaurant opening in Disney History – not only was it arguably the biggest draw in New Fantasyland it was a one of a kind restaurant that was a quick service restaurant in the afternoon and table service at night

Be Our Guest restaurant was by far the most anticipated Disney restaurant opening that I have ever seen

Be Our Guest has been unique since it opened in may ways however one of the most unique things about it is that it is the first Disney restaurant to offer Counter Service food at lunch and table service food at Dinner

Atmosphere – Be Our Guest Transports you into Beauty and the Beast so incredibly well when I first stepped into the restaurant I could say it was unlike anything that I had ever seen

Mussels – Not very many Disney Restaurants have mussels and they are arguably my favorite appetizer so I was very excited to see them on the Menu – they did not disappoint at all! I would defiantly recommend starting your meal with them you won’t be disappointed! DSC_0060

New York Strip – The Strip Steak was good not the best steak that I have ever had but I defiantly enjoyed it! It was a little fatty but that is to be expected when ordering a New York Strip… The hidden gem of the entree was the Truffle Mayo though I’m sure it was just truffle oil (Sorry Anthony Bourdain) but it was superb I actually ended up putting in on my steak…

DSC_0064

Grey Stuff – The Grey Stuff was well… Delicious I’m very happy that Disney added it to the dessert menu! I suggest ordering it especially if you have never been to Be Our Guest!

Overall Rating:

Atmosphere: 10  – Be Our Guest is one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever been in and I can say without a doubt that it is imagineering at its finest!

Service: 10 – My service here was the kind of Disney Service that would make Walt Disney Proud! She brought out everything I needed was incredibly friendly it was up to par with the level of service you receive on Disney Cruise Line if you know me you will know that, for me that is an HUGE comment!

Food: 8  The food at Be Our Guest is good, it is not the best food on property however for a 1 credit table service meal it is hard to beat! I defiantly enjoyed the Steak and the Mussels were excellent too!

Overall Score: 9  – Be Our Guest was an excellent experience and I absolutely would not hesitate to go back again! I love every part of the meal and think it is one of the better “1 credit” restaurants on Disney Property! I just wish that you didn’t have to make reservations quite so far in advance!

Be Our Guest – Lunch Review

Be Our Guest – Lunch Review – New Fantasyland – Magic Kingdom

Be Our Guest restaurant was by far the most anticipated Disney restaurant that I remember – It was the “E – Ticket attraction” in what was dubbed The Largest Expansion in Magic Kingdom History – Be Our Guest has been unique since it opened in may ways however one of the most unique things about it is that it is the first Disney restaurant to offer Counter Service food at lunch and table service food at Dinner – Needless to say I had extremely high expectations for the restaurant and I can say without a doubt that every meal I have had here has either met or surpassed my expectations ~

DSC_0379

When Be Our Guest first opened the wait for Lunch was easily an hour or more ever single day some people would even go strait to Be Our Guest as soon as the park opened to wait in line for the lunch that started at 11:00… Disney Finally decided to try something new and offer Lunch Reservations for a Counter Service Restaurant – As soon as this was announced I was on the My Disney Experience App making my Lunch Reservations!

Ordering -

For Breakfast and Lunch you order the same way – you check in at the Main Podium at the front of the restaurant then walk into the restaurant – go up to different kiosks order what you want, grab a table and then your food will Magically appear at whatever table you choose to sit at – If you want photos of the ordering process check out our breakfast review here - Be Our Guest Breakfast Review

Daytime Atmosphere -

New Fantasyland is an incredibly beautiful land I believe that Disney Imagineering did an absolutely fabulous job with the entire land! One of my favorite things is how different it is during the day then it is at night – for Lunch I will post daytime photos check out our upcoming dinner review for nighttime photos -

All of the details are exceptional!

IMG_0821

Now onto the Food!

The Lunch menu has many different options however I opted for the most talked about items -

French Onion Soup

This is the only Dish that I have had at BOG that I would pass on in the future – it was not bad however I just did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would…

DSC_0179

Hand Carved Roast Beef Sandwich – This was my favorite part of the meal! The sandwich was excellent – I would order this again in a heartbeat!

DSC_0173

Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcake – This was excellent!

DSC_0184

Rating:

I will rate the Quick Service restaurants a little differently than the Table Service Restaurants

Atmosphere: 10/10 Be Our Guest is one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever been in and I can say without a doubt that it is imagineering at its finest!

Food: 10/10 – For a quick service Lunch Be Our Guest is really hard to beat! I would pass on the soup next time and just order the Carved Roast Beef Sandwich and the Cupcake – it is plenty of food and will save you a little bit of money in the long run…

Overall Score: 10/10 – Be Our Guest Lunch is BY FAR the best lunch option in the Magic Kingdom Counter Service or otherwise the food is good and the atmosphere is outstanding – Make sure you tell you Goofy Getaways Agent that you want a Be Our Guest Lunch reservation on your next trip you won’t regret it!!!

Food:

Assorted Pastries come with every meal – I’m assuming more would come with a larger family however since it was just me there was plenty of food – Each of the pastries tasted fresh, they were all warm I think that these were a nice touch for sure and defiantly need to stay if they extend the breakfast test period!

DSC_0057

Croissant Doughnut – Fried Doughnut topped with Banana-Caramel Sauce, Pastry Crème, and Chocolate Ganache served with a selection of pastries

For my main entree I had to try the Croissant Doughnut and all I can say is that it was AWESOME I have a sweet tooth for sure so I wouldn’t recommend it if you aren’t looking for dessert for breakfast but for me it was perfect and I can say without a doubt the best breakfast entree that I have ever had at Disney Counter Service or not it was superb!!!

Atmosphere: 10  – Be Our Guest is one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever been in and I can say without a doubt that it is imagineering at its finest! (Stay tuned for my Lunch and Dinner reviews for my restaurant photos)

Food: 10 – I was very very impressed with everything I tried at Be Our Guest from the amazing Banana Foster entree to the fresh warm pastries this may be the best breakfast on Disney Property!

Overall Score: 10  – In short I was absolutely blow away by breakfast at Be Our Guest the food was excellent! The atmosphere was great especially because it wasn’t crowded at all and it took less than 10 minutes from the time I walked up to the podium to check in to get my food at my table!

Nine Dragons Review

Nine Dragons – China Pavilion – Epcot – Review

DSC_0607

 Nine Dragons is one of the least talked about restaurants in all of World Showcase – And to be honest it is one of the least talked about for good reason… I am not going to go into a ton of detail about every dish because honestly you could probably get the same thing via your local Chinese restaurant… the theming may be a little above but that is about it…

DSC_0609

Atmosphere:

The Atmosphere of Nine Dragons was pretty “Americanized Chinese Standard” It had some pretty features but nothing about it wowed me by any means…

DSC_0641 DSC_0639 DSC_0615 DSC_0617 DSC_0637 DSC_0632 DSC_0633 DSC_0638 DSC_0635 DSC_0627

Food:

For dinner Nine Dragons has a 3 – Course meal for 24.99 – There were a couple of different options but I went with the options below:

Chicken Dumpling Soup – The Soup was alright very very salty…

DSC_0618

Pepper Steak – The Pepper Steak was very very average not bad just not even to the quality of my local PF Changs…

DSC_0622

Strawberry Ice Cream – Hard to believe but this was my favorite thing that I tried! I don’t know what brand of ice cream it was but I thought it was actually quite tasty!

DSC_0629

Overall Rating:

Atmosphere: 5 – The Atmosphere is a Standard Chinese Restaurant… Not bad just not special at all…

Service: 8 – He was very nice and brought me everything I needed I can’t really complain about the service it was the best aspect of the meal!

Food: 4 – The food is Standard Chinese Restaurant… (Do you understand the continual theme of the meal???)

Overall Score: 5 – Nine Dragons is honestly a pretty standard Chinese restaurant nothing about it makes you feel as though you are in Epcot! When your dining you think that you could easily be in an small American Town Chinese restaurant the theming is just Meh… The food is just meh… Therefore I would recommend skipping Nine Dragons and going for something better along world showcase!

Festival of Fantasy Parade

Festival of Fantasy Parade – Magic Kingdom

The Festival of Fantasy Parade was one of the most talked about things that I can remember in a long time – It had a lot of buzz and very high expectations! I can remember seeing bits and pieces of costumes and floats and thinking that Disney may have a hit on their hands…

The Parade Debuted on March 9th 2014 and I was able to Watch a LiveStream of the entire parade within a minute or two I knew that Disney had knocked it out of the park with this one!!! Unfortunately things came up so I didn’t have an Opportunity to Watch the Parade in person until now and I can tell you it is even more spectacular in person ~ This is hands down my favorite Disney Parade that I have ever seen. Instead of me just talking about the parade here are some of my favorite photos from the parade! I was able to watch the parade in two different spots so I have a couple of different angles of photos for you to enjoy!

Les Chefs de France – Review

Les Chefs de France – France Pavilion – Epcot – Lunch Review

IMG_1184

Chefs de France is located in the very front of Epcot’s France Pavillon –  It was a restaurant that I had wanted to try for years but had never pulled the trigger for a variety of reasons so when I finally was able to try it I went in with very high expectations! France is supposed to be the Culinary Capital of the world right???

Atmosphere:

DSC_0223

I have never been to France however as I stepped into Chefs I felt like I had been transported to a bustling restaurant in the middle of a French City! The restaurant itself was pretty like I said I felt like I was in France! However the views of world showcase were excellent too it is one of the best restaurants to just sit back and people watch in.

DSC_0222 DSC_0219

Menu:

DSC_0205

Chefs has a pretty large lunch menu with many different options so I opted for their 3 Course Lunch Menu for $25, It had several different options for lunch and it saved me at least $15 dollars! I would  recommend it especially if you are looking for an appetizer or a dessert with your main…

Appetizer:

To Start out I opted for the French Onion Soup and a Baguette – The soup was very good it had a lot of flavor and the Baguette was very fresh and had a nice crunch when you tried it! Together they were an excellent way to start the meal!

DSC_0211 DSC_0208

 French Onion soup topped with Gruyere cheese

 Entree:

For the next course I went for the Gratin de macaroni – the macaroni was very good, rich creamy and I only needed a little bit of salt and pepper! The portion was also very large I had some left over that I enjoyed the following day for lunch…

DSC_0214

Gratin de macaroni – macaroni baked with cream and Gruyere cheese

Dessert:

When I first looked at the menu I had the intent of ordering the Creme Brûlée however the waiter recommend the Profiteroles au chocolat and it was a great choice… I mean how bad could Ice Cream covered in chocolate on a sweet bread be???

DSC_0216

Profiteroles au chocolat – Puff choux with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce

Overall Rating

When I am looking for a restaurant in World Showcase I want it to transport me to someplace new and Chefs executed that perfectly!

Food: 7 – Everything was good I enjoyed the French Onion Soup, Fresh Bagett, Mac and Cheese and
Dessert I could not complain at all!
Service: 7.5 – He was very attentive and filled my every need! He was very nice and recommended
some great dishes – He wasn’t the best waiter that I had ever had but I cannot find any complaints about the service.
Atmosphere: 8 – I really felt as though I had stepped into a little restaurant in France! The views of
people walking around world showcase were excellent and the theme of the restaurant itself was
great!
Overall: 7.5 – Chefs de France did not disappoint one bit! I really enjoyed my first experience here and
I would wholeheartedly recommend it!!!

Spice Road Table

Spice Road Table Review – Morocco Pavillon – Epcot’s World Showcase

DSC_0101

Spice Road Table is the newest restaurant in World Showcase – It is located in the Morocco Pavillon and has struggled to find its place in World Showcase since its opened to a variety of mixed reviews from outstanding to awful and everything in between – The first idea of what Spice Road Table was supposed to be was a Tapas Style Restaurant with no reservations or dining plan however after a few months that didn’t seem to work so now they do accept Dining Reservations as well as the Disney Dining Plan as well as Tables in Wonderland (the greatest thing ever – I will do a full Tables in Wonderland Review at some point but in short it is a 20% discount on pretty much every Disney World Restaurant and it includes alcohol!) So in short I really did not know what to expect from Spice Road Table…

DSC_0123

Atmosphere -

The Atmosphere of Spice Road Table is outstanding with open air views of World Showcase as well as many beautiful details throughout the restaurant it is one of the most beautiful in all of Disney World -

DSC_0107

DSC_0112

Food – Menu

I really had no idea what to order so I let the Waiter suggest his favorite items and went from there — He suggested the Spicy Shrimp, Yellowfin Tuna and Baklava —

DSC_0109 DSC_0110

Spicy Garlic Shrimp – To Start out I tried the Spicy Shrimp — In short I was really impressed the shrimp were actually a little spicy and they had great flavor! Yes a Disney restaurant that understands how to use Spice I was a little shocked ~ My one gripe was that they were a little cold however it was a very chilly and windy evening outside so that could have been a contributing factor so I don’t really knock the kitchen! They executed on the Flavor Profile so thats was the most important for me.

DSC_0117

YellowfinTuna – Spicy Tuna with Eggplant, Zucchini, Capers Salad, and Basil Oil – after enjoying my shrimp as much as I did I was very much looking forward to trying the Tuna and to be quite honest it did not disappoint! The Tuna seemed fresh and the Eggplant Zucchini salad that accompanied the dish was excellent! The portion size was a little bit smaller than I would’ve liked though… I wanted more of this great dish!

DSC_0126

Assorted Baklava – To finish I went with the Baklava assortment and it was good not spectacular probably the worst course of the meal however the first two set expectations very high

DSC_0131

Illuminations View – One of the best parts about Spice Road Table is that it has views of Illuminations and we were fortunate enough to have a perfect view right from out table! This is the only way that I want to watch Illuminations now the view was spectacular and I didn’t have to fight for a spot to see it!

DSC_0129 DSC_0152 DSC_0159

Overall Rating:

Atmosphere: 10 – You really can’t beat the atmosphere here! The restaurant itself is very pretty and if you get lucky enough to watch Illuminations from here its view is hard to beat!

Service: 6 – My only gripe was the meal was slow service it wasn’t awful however we had to ask for refills every time we needed one, ask for the bill on several occasions ask other waiters for help at times… He as friendly just not the most attentive waiter that I’ve ever had… However his dinner suggestions were right on point!

Food: 8 – The food was very good – Everything was seasoned very very well and everything tasted fresh – I only knock it a little because portion sizes were small that the Baklava was just average…

Overall Score: 8 – In short I was very impressed by Spice Road Table and would return without any hesitation! I have been to many World Showcase Restaurants since and I can say without a doubt that this is the best one that I have eaten at this year! The food was very good and the views of Illuminations were outstanding! If you are looking for something a little more adventurous when in Epcot try Spice Road Table you won’t regret it!

Garden Grill Review

Garden Grill Review – The Land Pavilion – Epcot

DSC_0196

Garden Grill is a rotating restaurant located in the Land Pavilion in Epcot. It overlooks Living with the Land (an attraction based on farming) and it also features character meet and greets with Farmer Mickey, Pluto, Chip, and Dale. One of Garden Grill’s most interesting characteristics is that most of its menu comes from the Living with the Land Attraction that it overlooks! From the Greens in the salad that you start with the the tilapia most everything on your table is grown right below your table!!!

DSC_0190

DSC_0191

Atmosphere:

Garden Grill is a very cool one of a kind restaurant combining a character meal, greenhouse and rotating dining room… I don’t know about you but I can’t think of any other restaurant that does all three of those things! Throughout your meal you are always entertained whether it be because of the character in front of you, the attraction in front of you or of course your food in front of you.

Living with the LandDSC_0230

Characters:

The Character interaction at some restaurants can be hit or miss however the Characters at Garden Grill were excellent! We were at the restaurant for a little over an hour and we saw many of the characters twice! They all took the time to take multiple photos and even did funny poses with my brother who had to take a selfie with each one! I was very impressed with how great the characters were ~ I would say if your looking to meet characters without waiting in line Garden Grill gets a big thumbs up!

Food:

Starters: Both of the starters were good – the salad tasted fresh as well as the rolls – however the star of the starters was the Orange Blossom Honey Butter it was outstanding I have know idea how they make it but I think I could have put it on tar and it would’ve made it great!!!

Entree

In short the Steak was the winner of the entrees everything else was just okay for me… On a side note the kids Mac and Cheese was also very good I would actually request that instead of the Mashed Potatoes…

Dessert:

Overall Rating:

Atmosphere: 8 – Garden Grill is an extremely unique restaurant even for Walt Disney World! Seeing the characters is always fun and having the restaurants surroundings change throughout the meal is also pretty cool.

Service: 8 – Our waiter did a very nice job he was friendly, brought out our food and refills efficiently I really couldn’t complain.

Food: 7 – I found the food at the Garden Grill to be hit or miss – the Salad, Bread, Mac and Cheese and Steak were very good, the Dessert was okay, and the other entrees not very good… However it was a nice touch that pretty much everything was grown right at Epcot…

Overall Score: 7.5 – Garden Grill was a very nice experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to go back especially if you want to do a character meal with Mickey and don’t want to deal with the hassle of Chef Mickey’s. The food was mostly good and the atmosphere was very good – therefore I would defiantly recommend it!

Tusker House Dinner Review

Tusker House Dinner Review – Animal Kingdom

DSC_0080

Tusker House is located in Animal Kingdoms African Village of Harambe – The theming of every area in Animal Kingdom (except dinoland…) is absolutely fantastic and Tusker House in no exception! Its themed after an African Village with tapestries that line the walls and ceilings as well as other African Inspired Details scattered throughout!

Atmosphere:

DSC_0126 DSC_0129 DSC_0145

Food:

Tusker House has a very large menu with many stations of food, from Mango Chutney and pita bread to Pork Loin and Tenderloin and an amazing bread pudding!

DSC_0085

Before I post photos of the different food stations I wanted to say that I was extremely impressed with the quality of the food that was served at Tusker House for dinner! This is a restaurant that I had not really ever considered and never heard much about. However I sincerely enjoyed every singe part of the meal! It had some more unique options for the most adventurous eaters but it also had standards like Mac and Cheese and chocolate chip cookies!

DSC_0141 DSC_0139 DSC_0151 DSC_0155 DSC_0167 DSC_0165

Overall Rating:

Atmosphere: 9 Like I said earlier Tusker House is a beautiful restaurant that executes its theme of an African Village very well. The details from Harambe Village are carried into the restaurant perfectly making it one of the better themed in park restaurants in all of Walt Disney World – when you step into the restaurant you feel as though you just experienced another part of the incredible African land of Harambe!

Service: 9 Our waiter was on top of our every need – brought refills when we need them and answered any questions that we had

Food 9 – Tusker House’s Food Quality absolutely shocked me, generally buffets in Disney World are just meh at best but Tusker House was completely different. On top of higher food quality than normal they had some unique options that really added to the overall dining experience.

Overall: 9 Tusker House is becoming a character dinner in March and all I can say is that I hope that they can keep up the food quality because if they do it will be far and away the best Character Meal on property! This is a restaurant that is sure to please everyone and should not be missed if you are spending a day in Animal Kingdom!
