It is pretty darn sad when a valet picks you out as a big Boma eater

I'm with you on not liking some of that stuff - I don't think I would have enjoyed it either. I hate sauerkraut! The flan looks really nice though.

Hmmmmm You're right, I think I would have left that lunch and wanted to go to Beaches and Cream or something. I think the Pigs foot and the cheese would have been my favorite courses and I'd never had pigs foot, so I don't know that I would have liked that.

I might look at the other lunches for next year. We're also planning on being there the same weekend as the Swan Dolphin Classic and that has received great reviews, we might be doing that on Friday and Saturday nights, but maybe we'll stay until the following Sunday and do PFTS the next weekend. I'm starting to work it all out in my this year's PTR which has now become my next year's PTR!

Yeah - I liked the food just fine at Boma but it was chaos in there! No more going there unless its at opening.

The dessert was the best part of the Frunch food wise.

Yeah - I know its always a risk about not liking things but I think I hit the jackpot on what doesn't work for me. Hopefully next year is better!

Yeah - I was able to enjoy a lot of the 3D Dessert Party as I was not full upon leaving.

I'm hoping to do the classic next year but hopefully I'll be living in Orlando by that time. It definitely would help me do more events that way.

That HBD Signature dinner looked FABULOUS!!!!! Hoping they'll be offering it again next year!

I'm not a picky eater but your French Regional (Frunch) didn't appeal to me either. The one we attended was excellent, sorry yours wasn't.

I hope so too! I will do it again - provided they don't have the same night triple booked again.

Yeah - I'm going to give French Regional Lunch another try since my first one two years ago got ruined thanks to work, this one had the weird menu so third time will be a charm right?

3D Dessert Discovery

Shortly after 7:30pm, we checked in for the dessert event and went inside. Not long afterwards, Abby was behind us while checking in so we stood (or sat) around until it was time to start.

I noticed while waiting - it seemed no where as crowded as last years. Even 5 minutes before it was to start, the waiting area had enough room for people to sit and relax and not crowd each other before opening.

At 8pm, the 'rush' happened. All the tables in the front part of the room were taken but once we went to the other side of the "sweet seats" - it was very very open. Abby saved us a table while my husband and I split up to get some desserts.

Menu!



If you look at the menu's closely - you see that the same stations are repeated multiple places throughout the event. The only stations not repeated are the babycakes station & the candy one.

For my first plate,

I had some of the miniture pastries -
The Chocolate Chip Cannoli was good
Miniture Eclair - good
Cheese! - always good (but very safe flavors of cheese)
Whoopie Pie - Eh
Puff Pastry - Eh

To drink, I visited the flambeed station & picked up the
Iced Coffee Cream w/ Bourbon Pipettes

My first one of these only had 1 pipette which wasn't very strong with that coffee flavor. When I went back for a second one - I picked up a few more of them and could then taste it!

My husband's first plate:

He visited the babycakes (which he had no idea was gluten free/etc.), miniture table & cheese.
He loved the babycakes cookie & icing sandwich & made me get him some more on my next go around.
He loved everyone on his plate.

He went sober for his drink of choice:

Fruit Punch

We did a couple more trips each with each plate getting smaller than the last. I did enjoy the cheeses to help balance out all the sweets. We took some of the cotton candy (to go) and enjoyed that after going home the next day.

The flambeed donuts were amazing like they were last year - but very very rich & you can't eat anything afterwards.

Apparently some people thought it would be fun to dress up at this event:

I wasn't sure if they were lost on their way to the MNSSHP or something.

After an hour, my husband & I were done. We just can't eat that many sweets even with the savory items to balance it out. We said goodbye to Abby & headed back to the resort to resume packing.

We were given goodie bags upon leaving.
Inside were some truffles & caramels. They are currently in our kitchen island candy bowl waiting to be eaten but we haven't felt like it yet.


I overall enjoyed this event. If its offered next year, I think we are going to pass though. It had very similar items to last year which was a bit of a disappointment to my husband and me as we wanted more new items. Hopefully, if all goes well, we'll be living in Florida by then so if it changes & I read about in reviews, we can always add it into the plans later on.

Mmm those desserts look lovely but if I was going to choose only one dining event to do I think I would go for HBD - that looked amazing

It was very delicious! If you have a huge sweet tooth, it would be a great event for you.

Yeah - HBD was my favorite special event this year by far! I glad it went so well for a first time event.

Its kinda similar except there is a lot of booze present from liquors to dessert wines. The desserts are a better quality than that of the MK dessert party though & a lot more options available no matter what sweets make you happy.

Sorry you didn't care for the French Lunch as much as the rest of us. I was so nervous when we sat and down and read the menu but I everything was a very pleasant surprise for me. I was shocked I liked everything as much as I did.

It was lovely getting to meet you guys and going to the events together.

Hopefully you guys will be living in FL soon and we can meet at Disney more often!

Its alright - everyone has different tastes. My table wasn't really happy with it either so it probably was one of those type things you either loved or didn't.

It was nice meeting you! Hopefully we'll get to FL soon - just about finding that right job that will move me!
