An Extra Person for Dinner?

As we sat there, an extra guest floated in, right next to us!








Then our server comes over with free champagne!

Relief At Last!

We ordered our meal and were patiently waiting for our New England Cod Cakes when I saw bubbles at the back of the tank. The turtle had swam away and I had the most strange, scared feeling in my stomach. Was it the diver? I was panicking in case this didn't go well ~ would I give it away, would I not get the camera ready? I made up some story about thinking I saw an eagle ray or something and when I saw him get closed, Gavin had his back to the diver and people started pointing to the aquarium.

Gavin turned around, and there was....





Gav's face was so amazing. I don't think he ever dreamed things like this could happen. We have had so much bad luck over the years together and everything was just like a dream come true.



We blew kisses and I mouthed thank yous to the diver, and our meal started to arrive. Everyone was cheering in the restaurant and we went quite pink!

Our meal was simply delicious and then our turtle returned! He sat right next to us.








This was a truly spectacular time for us.




Our turtle did a little swim...





...and came back again!



Gavin ordered Key Lime Pie, and this was to be the benchmark of all Key Lime Pies throughout his time here. I think he would go back to the Coral Reef just for the pie!



I had a fruit sorbet thing with a seahorse wafer!

We finished up, took a few more photos and left, totally and completely delighted.






We headed back to the Boardwalk for some Wedding preparation!

I don't like seafood so never fancied Coral Reef, but your romantic evening looks so lovely that I am now considering booking it! That menu idea is lovely!! I wish I had known about things like that when I got married at Disney 2 years ago.

...and we ate our meal. It was the most sumptuous, unusually and unexpectedly delicious meal. When I first saw it, I was thinking "hmm... crab and potato. Is that it?" but it really needed nothing else! I could have eaten 20 of them myself. To eat them they were extracted from the claw shell, dipped in melted butter and just eaten. I miss them just thinking about them. This was an even tastier place than the California Grill!

We decided to try dessert and I ordered the pistachio brulee.



Gav decided to have another cocktail instead, a "dessert" cocktail as he called it. We are not drinkers at all at home and so we decided to try cocktails on our adventure, as many as we could


I was so full, it was hard work!




So glad you loved Fulton's. It is one of our favorite Disney restaurants. We had our 25th anniversary dinner there last month as it was the first Disney restaurant my sweet hubby ever took me to.

Congratulations on your wedding...you both are adorable.

I'm sorry you didn't know about this ~ I have no idea when they started doing it. The food is just delicious!

Oh Canada!

When I was finished, we got showered and headed over to Epcot for our reservation at (drum roll please...) LE CELLIER! I was so desperate to get a reservation here and so delighted when I did!




We got there in plenty of time, even walking over from the Boardwalk...






All Gav knew was that there was the same Filet Mignon that Chef Corey had cooked at our Planning Session here, and that was good enough for him!




As we arrived people were getting turned away and I was so happy (although sad for them) because I don't think Gav believed me (and neither did his family) that it would not be possible to get into Le Cellier without reservations.

At this time we were waiting patiently with our phone for our families to arrive at All Star Movies and we had left messages with the hotel for them to call us at our room to let us know they were safe. Anyway, despite the fact they should have already arrived we assumed they were just a little late in checking in and we went ahead to dinner...




We were led inside and we waited for a few minutes before being led down into the cellar...



We were crammed into a corner, far too close for comfort to the next people. They turned out to be super grumpy and we were embarrassed by them.



Still, we continued to enjoy ourselves and our server brought us bread and took our drinks order. I asked about the Ice Wine and he said that it was only sold by the bottle now and I was so sad. He went away and came back shortly after with a glass for me though ~ success!!!




Gavin had some Canadian beer...



and we ordered. Our first course was the cheese soup ~ and we had no idea on the difference between the two sizes and ended up with a huge bowl each of the soup!



I tried a little of the bread too ~ it was nice but I had noooo intention on filling up with bread before my delicious filet!

Oh no!! Ice wine at Le Cellier is only sold by the bottle now!?!! Booooooo!!!

That's my main reason for going there! I wonder if I make a sad face, they might give me a glass too!?

How much is the bottle?! I don't think I really want to imagine.

I have pictures of the menu where it actually says the price of the glass, so they should sell it to you ~ I don't know why they said that it was only sold by the bottle! It's very delicious but I could only take a small sip at a time, it was so sweet!!!

Oh Canadian Filet!

The filet arrived!





Gav was so ecstatic!



All was going well and we barely spoke to each other or looked at each other throughout the filet course ~ we mostly had our eyes closed in bliss, ha ha. That sounds really geeky but we just don't get meat like this at home and we wanted to remember it always...

So then the dessert menu arrives... uh-oh!





You will see by the shocked look on Gav's face that he has found the price for the Ice-Wine I had the Inniskillin one, of course





I sat there just laughing at his face until my sides ached!

I really wanted the chocolate Moose since I have a moose obsession but I could not fit anything else in. However, I was stubborn and Gavin's stomach often knows no bounds and so I ordered it for us to share.

He arrived and I was like a little child!







We finished the meal and thanked our server profusely ~ he deserved it after all of the grief he got from the other people next to us. They were soooo rude!!! Complaining about everything and about everything he tried to do for them!



We left completely satisfied and then some, and walked back to the Boardwalk (well, we waddled anyway...)







It's so beautiful at night.....(and in the day).
