All caught up !!! I had the same feeling about Prime Time , my steak was mediocre at best, but again we waited a long time to be seated and that did not make me a happy camper. Now Raglan Road is my favorite !!I think I am working my way thru their entres and haven't had a bad one yet !! Some have been repeated more than once. But The dessert I have to have is the Raspberry merangue one it is so light and delish!!I have been wanting to try Garden Grill again ,I liked it but the family didn't. Have you tried O'Hanas for supper it is awesome !!

Just caught up

Shame your dinner at Citricos was a bit hit and miss

It's one signature we haven't tried yet and it usually gets great reviews. Sounds like they were having some issues!

We both really want to try lunch at Chefs De France - I would love to meet Remy

Halloween.
Breakfast
Cinderella’s Royal Table, Magic kingdom

We started the day with a walk up an empty main street for DD’s bibbidi bobbidi boutique reservation at 8am in the castle.



Afterwards we were asked by a cm if we would like to go into the new fantasyland – it was previewing that day for cast members and their families. Of course we said yes.

Some pictures of Gaston's tavern:

We had a 10am adr at CRT. We eventually arrived at 10.30am and were seated without any problem in the last seating of breakfast guests.DD had her photo taken with Cinderella which is included in the price.
The food was a lot better than I was expecting. We had coffee and juice to start, DD had chocolate milk. We then shared a platter of pastries.

DH chose the steak with frittata which he enjoyed. I went for the lobster crepe which was very tasty.

DD’s option was French toast with scrambled egg and bacon – she doesn’t eat scrambled egg so they swapped it for sausage.

DD met Aurora, Jasmine, Snow white and Ariel.



She was also given a wand and star and joined in the wishing ceremony.



This was mine and DD’s second time here – first time we tried lunch but disliked the food. Breakfast was much better. Even DH enjoyed it.

I had pre ordered a chocolate slipper as a surprise for DD by email about a month before we ate. I had to remind the server which spoiled the surprise a bit as DD overheard me whisper slipper but she did feel very special.

Cost $15.57 including tax.



Used 6 TS includes tip

Lunch
Be Our Guest QS, Fantasyland

After breakfast we were lucky enough to be able to spend more time in the new fantasyland which was only open to cm’s and a few lucky chosen families.



They were serving lunch in Be Our Guest. You are given a plastic rose and order using the touch screens. A cm was there to help – we paid partly in snack credits and partly charged to the room.



For snack credits we got two fountain sodas, a lemon mousse cake, a chocolate cake, a cream puff and a bowl of French onion soup = 6 snack credits.

We also paid for a croque monsieur with fries and a steak sandwich with fries which totalled $18.73 inc tax.



After ordering you take a seat and put the rose on the table. The cm then finds you – bringing your food in a cart. You help yourself to drinks and refills at the side of the room.

All three rooms were open to look around.I enjoyed the soup, not quite as good as at chefs de france. DH enjoyed the steak but said the bread was hard.

DD ate some of the croque monsieur sandwich, I tried this and it was tasty.

The desserts were all good – just hard to get out of the wrappers

Dinner
California Grill, Contemporary resort



We had a 7.20pm adr as we planned to see hallowishes from the observation deck.

This worked well as trick or treating at old key west resort where we were staying was 5.30-6.30pm.



We checked in and were taken up in the elevator and seated almost immediately. We had a great table next to a window.



It was loud, lots of children in. Definitely the signature restaurant with the most children.

I had a twisted mai tai cocktail as I liked the sound of it and DH and DD stuck to coke.



DD started with fruit. DH had a cheeseburger flatbread – this was tasty but greasy like a cheeseburger – he managed to drip grease on his freshly washed shirt.

I had the smoked salmon flatbread which was lovely – it was presented with a soft poached egg.



DD then chose the macaroni cheese. DH and I had the filet which came with Brussels sprouts and potato casserole. We both had the bbq sauce on the side which was a good call as neither of us cared for it or thought it went with the sides.

I wasn’t too keen on the sides (I only eat sprouts on Christmas day!) and my filet was a poor cut – poorest steak of the trip (and I had a lot of steaks)



For dessert DD had the pretend sushi that she enjoyed, I had the Heather’s chocolate sampler which had lots of different bits and pieces to try – DD had the mint mousse from it.

DH had key lime cheesecake which he enjoyed .



By now it was almost time for hallowishes at 9.30pm so we went outside. It was a fantastic view, lovely atmosphere and a very special end to Halloween.



Used 6 TS credits

Wow, DD looks beautiful in her Cinderella dress
I love the Hallowwen outfit as well - she is a very stylish young lady!

Your breakfast at CRT looks really good, I think the latest menu is really interesting

We really want to go back to CG on our next trip - we loved the sushi there

I was going to try the sushi but the flatbread caught my eye and was very good.

Shame about your steak at CG - this is the only place I normally order it.

The princess meal went down a treat from the look of it. Was the slipper good? Can I ask how to order one? I think it would be a nice surprise for DD after our Christmas meal. Thanks

I emailed to book the slipper - got the email address off the cake thread on the DIS restaurants board. Did it about 3 or 4 weeks before the adr. Just gave them the adr number and the wording. They emailed me back with 24 hours - very easy. We paid on the day of the meal for the slipper - just over $15 inc tax.

DD enjoyed it - would make a lovely christmas surprise.
