I'm so full I think I am going to POP!!! Deluxe Dining Trip Report
Hello everyone I am a Freshman in College I have been to Disney at least 1 time but more like 2 to 3 times a year for my entire life. I have read a million trip reports but I have not done one myself so I am really excited to share with you all some really great food pictures and reviews! So here it goes :cool1:
This is me:
I am a major foodie! I love to cook watch cooking shows take cooking classes and especially EAT!!! I live at home because my university is a quick drive away so I still eat out with the family several nights a week we really like good food so trust me my reviews are honest we eat well always! I do believe that Disney World has top notch food anyone who says other wise is simply foolish there are some restaurants that are better than others and many are inconsistent however there is very good food to be had!
So here is the dining list these are all from March 2013 so very very new! We were on the Deluxe Dining Plan, one night my parents did eat at Victoria and Alberts I do not have photos from that but if you are thinking our meals do not add up this is why...

Food places look good to me.
Hi there! I'm going to jump in and tag along :wave2:
That is one great photo of you, love it!
I am in! I love food pics!
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. http://i1357.photobucket.com/albums/...ps34754441.jpg
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 :)
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
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 $8.00 both were really incredible!!!
I really have to be honest and say from the decor to the food to the service this restaurant is TOP NOTCH!!! Really I cannot say how much I recommend it to anyone! Family's, Couples, really anyone it is a GEM!!! I rate the meal a 10 out of 10 really really fantastic!!!
Mmmmmmm, I want a Cobb salad now! Or maybe a steak. Or maybe...
Off to a great start :) Love the photo with Gaston, lol.
So after dinner we watched Fantasmic I have to say I will not watch it any other way than with the dinner package! I thought the seats were great and the meal at Brown Derby was fantastic! I feel the same way about Wishes I will only watch it from California Grill or Narcoossees, I really want Epcot to make a quality restaurant to watch Illuminations but I digress :offtopic:
So as I woke up the following morning I was looking forward to the Opening Day of Epcot's 20th Annual Flower and Garden Festival :thumbsup2 This is one of my favorite events each year and I have gone to quite a few of them! There were quite a few really cool topiaries I have quite a few pictures I will share overall it was a fun opening day and it passed the time before Le Cellier :hourglass
I will post more pictures later in the report but these were my opening morning pictures!!!
Great HBD review! I am eating there in 20 days and am so excited! I will definitely be getting the grapefruit cake and salad. The steak looks delicious!
Rachel you have to try the Grapefruit cake for sure :) I think it is right around 50$ 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!
