11 Days of Deluxe Dining - Updated 7/20 Dessert Party - final update

Hello! Welcome to my first Dining Report....and trip report of any kind actually!

So here's us. Aren't we adorable?



Now for some small introductions so that you know who we are!

I'm Ashley. This was my 8th trip to The World. I find an unhealthy level of enjoyment and fun with scheduling and rescheduling ADRs for our trips. I make spreadsheets, read reviews, look at pictures, and read more reviews to determine just where we will be dining for every single meal. I pretty much like everything except cooked cauliflower...it smells funny. ::: And I'll try just about anything at least once, and I love me some dessert

My awesome DH is Chuck. This was his 4th trip to Disney. He's less of a planner and more of a wing it guy. The moment our plane lands in Florida, he's busy cancelling and rearranging my ADRs I so carefully planned. He changes his mind every day on where we should eat the next, but he does take my massive knowledge of Dis reviews in mind when decided where we shall go! He's much more a safe eater than I am, and he absolutely hates onions...except onion rings for some reason. He doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, and prefers appetizers to desserts.

So now that you know us a little better. Here is where we dined at this trip!

Out of pressed pots? I would be devastated. Those things are to. Die. For. But, on the other hand, I think that Tonga Toast would make me happy again! I've not gotten to try it yet, but all of these pictures of it I keep seeing make me drool! Lol!!

Great reviews! Keep em comin'!

I have also found the service at Brown Derby to be sub-par. It was certainly the worst service we had at a signature restaurant (and quite a few non-signature restaurants!). We were on the dining plan, too, so perhaps that was the difference? (I know it's not supposed to make a difference, but our server certainly gave us the impression we were a waste of her time. I thought it was rather rude.)

That plate of crab and lobster looks amazing! You will have to try the Rose & Crown sometime... we thought it was great!

We are getting ready to go back to WDW in about a month. We are definitly trying Rose & Crown this time. DH finally decided that too many people like it for us not to try it!

Le Cellier

So up next is Le Celliers! I've been trying for about three trips to Disney to get ADRs here, but since we always plan our trips fairly last minute, they are usually booked up. This time, I got lucky! DH also ended up enjoying it so much, he spammed our mobile magic app for another reservation to open up. He actually found several, but I told him twice in one trip is plenty!

Bread

I really loved the pretzel sticks. But neither of us cared for the one with the sunflower seeds. It was very dry.

Whiskey Flight

Chuck loves whiskey so he decided to get the flight. He enjoyed it so much, he got two on our second trip here!.

Margarita Flight

I decided to try this. It was pretty good. I picked up the glowing ice cube at one point to turn it off from flashing, and I dropped it on the corner of the glass. It totally broke the glass. Our waitress was really cool about it though, and said that the glasses are tiny and delicate. She even brought me a new drink even though I had drank that one.

Margarita

I had this our second dinner there. It was pretty tasty.

"Cedar Creek" Clams Provençal Oven-roasted Tomato, Fennel, and Garlic-Basil Pistou 15.00

Chuck had this the first dinner. He proclaimed them to be amazing, especially the broth.

Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup made with Moosehead Beer and "Neuske's" Smoked Bacon 9.00

I had the soup, I don't usually order soups at restaurants. But I was so glad I did! This was super yummy and cheesy.

Assortment of Artisanal Cheese with Chef's Selection of Dried Fruits and Preserves 14.00

I also don't usualy get cheese plates, but I did quite a bit on this trip. This was probably my favorite. I loved the honeycomb and Brie combination.

"Chef's Garden" Caesar Salad Baby Romaine, Brioche Croutons, Parmesan, and Boquerones 10.00

Chuck said that as salads go this was pretty good, but he would have rather had clams again.


“Le Cellier” Mushroom Filet Mignon AAA Canadian Beef Tenderloin with Wild Mushroom Risotto, White Turffle-Butter Sauce, and Micro Chervil 43.00

So as I said we had the same entrees on both nights since we loved them so much. I'm usually not a steak person, but this was the best steak I've ever had, and the risotto was so delicious!

Canadian “AAA” New York Strip Steak with Potato Pavé, Wilted Spinach, and Vin Rouge Reduction 44.00

DH is a steak person however. He loved his. He said it was the best steak of the trip.

Maple Crème Brûlée 6.99

I enjoyed the ceme brulee. It probably wasn't the best I've ever had, but it was still super yummy.

White Chocolate Cheesecake Citrus Shortbread Cookie, Seasonal Berries, and Raspberry Air 10.00

The while chocolate cheesecake was delicious! I did think that the outter layer has a weird texture

Chocolate Trio

I can't find this on their current menu. But it was a chocolate trio. Chuck loves the molten cake, which is his favorite dessert. He got it both times!

So the food was super good, and our service was amazing. We really enjoyed it here. Even waiting for out table was kinda fun. The first night we were there, the staff asked us Disney trivia questions. So that was fun.
