We continued to enjoy our wine and ordered dinner.

I ordered the Fliet of Pan Roasted Chateaubriand. The meat was done to perfection, medium rare, but the sauce was not the best. Easy fix though, I simply scraped it off. I took this with my cell, sorry about the poor quality:



Chloe and Michael each ordered the Colorado Rack of Lamb Chops and truly enjoyed them. They were incredible:



Gabby ordered the Seared and Baked Chicken Breast. It was so moist and she really enjoyed the parsnips:



Joshua ordered the King Crab Stuffed Main Lobster Tail. He couldn’t finish all of it but what he did, he really liked.


In between ordering and eating and all the time up until dessert, we enjoyed the heck out of that patio and we were not alone. At various times we saw people go in and out. I’m running out of adjectives so I’ll let Chloe’s photos do the talking:























I’m positive there couldn’t be a worse angle for me but what are you going to do?







Love this one:







People waiting for F!:



Gabby was making the goofiest face in this pic and asked that I not post it. Problem solved:



During our meal we were mostly helped by what I’m guessing is an assistant server who urged us to stay for F!. I told him we’d like a tour during the evening and he said he had the perfect guy for the job. He also said that the timing would match up with F! if we wanted to stay.

After a lovely and leisurely meal we told the kids that they could go on some rides but we wanted to have dessert and coffee and of course the tour. The opted to stay with us.


To be continued.....

Love the evening so far! I can't believe that Michael could take his glassware on the patio. I've heard that they don't allow that because evidently a patron dropped a glass on someone in Café Orleans once.

The meal looks fabulous! I'm just fixing dinner and now I'm even hungrier! Thank goodness I'm cooking something tasty! I'm glad that your kids appreciated the moment enough to treasure the time and not go ride some rides.

He couldn't take his glassware on the patio. Neither could the other two couples we chatted with while they enjoyed their wine on the patio. Makes perfect sense once they told us. It didn't occur to us the potential risk while we sauntered our cool selves out there.

I was glad they stayed too. They really enjoyed it.

What are you making for dinner?

Rib Eye Steaks, Baked Potatoes and Green Beans. One of my favorite meals!

Me too! I know you're using real butter and sour cream too. The food for the meet during your Fall trip to WDW sounds great too. You know we'll be crashing your house for dinner one of these visits.

What a great evening. It must have been exciting to eat that night. All of your pictures are very nice as well as the food. Very great update.

It was such a special evening. I'll tell Chloe you like her photos. She had so much fun taking them. I like seeing the evening through her eyes.

It was so great, thank you. I love family time like we had. It was just the five of us which is rare between all of the kids' friends and soccer games and dance etc...I'm sure you can totally relate.

Dinner is a totally different experience. Both were amazing. Lunch is much more casual but the buffet is fantastic. Dinner is pure magic with the twinkling lights and being above NOS. I'd do either again in a heartbeat.

I am glad that I caught this before heading to the airport in a little over two hours. What a truly magical evening you had even if service could have been a bit better. I loved all the photos. I can't believe that I will be at Grand Californian tonight and at Disneyland tomorrow ( here in the UK, it is already May 16th).

Of course, in fact Fran had me buy another sour cream (even though I knew we had plenty left) It was great. You can crash the new house. We don't let anyone in this one it's awful. PIO got a special one day pass, but we are so overstuffed (think hoarders) that we need our new 5-6 bedroom house with family room and oversized living room to fit everything in so that we don't look like the house was recently tossed!

Hi there! I know you were running out of adjectives but I have to say that was a FABULOUS meal! Chloe did a great job with the photos. Just wow! The memories for you and your family will be so amazing!

Looking forward to hearing about the rest of your evening!

Love reading your TR! I am doing "reasearch" to try and plan a first trip to DL for my family. We've been to WDW a lot but I feel like I'm starting all over again in my Disney knowledgel trying to plan something to DL.

Awesome dinner at Club 33 and Chloe did a great job with pictures. Can't wait to hear about the rest.

This has to be the most amazing whirlwind DL day ever. How wonderful to get opportunities to go to both 1901 and Club 33!

I am really enjoying your report and I have to say your family is just too adorable. All of you!
