Thanks guys I am excited to share everything it was a really great trip!!! Alright everyone so as we got off the plane I was able to hop right onto the new My Disney Experience app and grab a lunch reservation for Liberty Tree Tavern this is always one of our favorites so I was excited that there was still a same day reservation :) our plane was ahead of schedule so it was great to get a nice meal in before Dinner.

I always love the mugs too, they are not glass like they were the last time I was there but they are still pretty cool.

Now on to the meal,
I started with the New England Clam Chowder $7.49 it was very good a great way to start the trip, I am not from the East Coast but to me it was great I really would recommend it...

For my entree I went back and forth quite a bit and I ended up going with the New England Pot Roast... Our Tavern Keeper's Favorite - braised beef in a cabernet wine and mushroom sauce served with mashed potatoes and garden vegetables $18.99
I was very very impressed I had forgotten how much I liked the Liberty Tree Tavern! It was a little cool outside so this comfort food was great!

The others at my table ordered the Pilgrims' Feast - traditional roast turkey with herb bread stuffing, mashed potatoes and a garden vegetable $15.99
this was good but not as good as my pot roast...

For Dessert I could not help myself I ordered the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake - vanilla cake with a gooey toffee filling, vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce $7.49 this truly is always a favorite and again it impressed me.

My Mom ordered the Martha Washington's Cake - a slice of rich chocolate cake, layered with a liberating chocolate coffee icing $7.99 and again it was good but I ordered the better dessert!

Overall this was a very good meal the atmosphere is fun and you cannot beat the location! I would rate this meal a 7 on a scale of one to 10 it is a good meal but trust me I had much better food :thumbsup2

Great pictures. Did you use your phone or a IPad.

Thanks, I think for the most part they get better as I go and I used my Cannon DSLR and I have a Nikon point and shoot :)

WDWFANCBIIIME 03-18-2013 09:55 PM

I actually started with my iPhone and then as I started going more often I upgraded Cameras :thumbsup2

So once we were finished with Lunch at Liberty Tree we headed over and went through New Fantasyland it was a little detour before dinner that evening :hourglass

Here are just a few pictures of New Fantasyland I thought it was just okay I am not really there target audience so don't listen to me ;)

This last picture is is of my Mom Gaston and me he really was fantastic!!! He asked my dad how he won such a trophy very great character interaction I really recommend it!

Now on to the real fun... Dinner :thumbsup2

WDWFANCBIIIME 03-19-2013 02:33 PM

So after New Fantasyland we went back to our resort got our room I really recommend a preferred room at Port Orleans Riverside it really is worth it!!! Riverside is one of our favorite resorts and this little upgrade makes it even better :thumbsup2
After getting settled in we took a bus and headed over to Hollywood Studios we were headed to the Hollywood Brown Derby for the first time...

I love the outside of this restaurant and think that it is way to often over looked as we went inside I really loved the decor it really is one of my favorite restaurants on property just purely on decor alone I thought that it was great!!!

As we started out we were asked if we wanted to participate in the Fantasmic Dinner Package I really had heard mixed things about it but it did not cost us any extra meal credits or any more money so I thought it was worth a try :thumbsup2


Our Famous Cobb Salad - with finely chopped greens, turkey breast, egg, bacon, tomatoes, crumbled bleu cheese, avocado, chives and Cobb dressing - appetizer $8.00 : This was pretty good I am not a real big salad person so I thought it was good but my Mom said she could easily order this as her entree and be very very happy!

For my App I ordered the Blue Lump Crab Spring Rolls - snow crab claw and a Asian slaw with spicy miso aioli $13.00 these were incredible!!! I really went back and forth on what to order and our server suggested it I really was very very pleased with his suggestion! I really like snow crab so if you don't this probably is not the best option but if you do this really is a must!


Everyone at the table ordered the Charred-glazed Filet of Beef - with a red wine reduction, topped with a cabernet and roasted shallot butter, over white truffle oil wild forest mushroom mashed potato $42.00 This was again incredible I really was not to sure about ordering a Filet here but it was AMAZING we actually gave our complements to the chef and he came out and thanked us personally!!! I think this Filet rivals most any Filet anywhere really was incredible!!!


I was completely full but I mean I could never pass up dessert right? I ordered the Banana White Chocolate Toffee Tower - on Cocoa-Almond Cookie and Bananas Foster $9.00 and my Mom ordered the Grapefruit Cake - Light Layers of Yellow Cake with fresh Grapefruit-Cream Cheese Icing $8.00 both were really incredible!!!

I really have to be honest and say from the decor to the food to the service this restaurant is TOP NOTCH!!! Really I cannot say how much I recommend it to anyone! Family's, Couples, really anyone it is a GEM!!! I rate the meal a 10 out of 10 really really fantastic!!!

daisymomof4 03-19-2013 03:25 PM

Mmmmmmm, I want a Cobb salad now! Or maybe a steak. Or maybe...

Off to a great start :) Love the photo with Gaston, lol.

So after dinner we watched Fantasmic I have to say I will not watch it any other way than with the dinner package! I thought the seats were great and the meal at Brown Derby was fantastic! I feel the same way about Wishes I will only watch it from California Grill or Narcoossees, I really want Epcot to make a quality restaurant to watch Illuminations but I digress :offtopic:

So as I woke up the following morning I was looking forward to the Opening Day of Epcot's 20th Annual Flower and Garden Festival :thumbsup2 This is one of my favorite events each year and I have gone to quite a few of them! There were quite a few really cool topiaries I have quite a few pictures I will share overall it was a fun opening day and it passed the time before Le Cellier :hourglass

I will post more pictures later in the report but these were my opening morning pictures!!!

rachel09985 03-19-2013 09:33 PM

Great HBD review! I am eating there in 20 days and am so excited! I will definitely be getting the grapefruit cake and salad. The steak looks delicious!

WDWFANCBIIIME 03-20-2013 12:09 PM

Rachel you have to try the Grapefruit cake for sure :) I think it is right around 50$ to do the Fantasmic Meal Package and you get any app entree and dessert I think it is well well worth that!!!

Can't wait for more! You've just encouraged me to change one of my ADR's to the Brown Derby!
