    when CRT had an all you can eat meal? It was either lunch or dinner and King Stephan ruled over the meal. He gave orders and watched over everyone. I was only 13 at the time. I am now 21:teeth: . (oh well it was worth it a try.)
    Basically I don't remember much else. Can anyone help my failing memory?

    Although that must seem like a lifetime ago to you;) it was only 8 years ago. I must say I don't remember the meal you speak of.
    Anybody else?:D

    I don't remember an all-you-can-eat meal but I certainly remember King Stephan! I celebrated my 29th birthday there and I have a picture with him. That was __ years ago!!! ;)

    Eight years ago was 1996, and it was the first time I ate there. I must say I don't remember an all you can eat meal there, at least not at lunch (the meal I was there for).

    Although lunch at King Stephan's has been a tradition for us for many years, I also don't remember an all you can eat meal (other than breakfast before people started calling it a princess breakfast) and also don't remember an actual King Stephan.

    BTW, has anyone else had a server who introduces herself as Lady something or other and then doesn't do the address thing for the diners? We've had her the last two times we've dined there and figure if she can't see the fun in it she might consider other restaurants?:rolleyes:

    Well.... OK maybe it was a few more years ago than I said. OK OK!! I am 33. There I said it so that would make it 20 years ago!! I just remember King Stephan sitting at the front of the restaurant and I remember not really liking the whole thing at all. I was shy back then and taking orders in front of everyone was embarrassing.
    Come on... Someone must remember!

    I remember King Stephan's Banquet Hall. But I don't remember if it was all you could eat. What I remember most was thinking it strange that Sleeping Beauty's father would open a restaurant in Cinderella's castle.:confused:

    Boy I am old if no one else has a good memory of this. I too don't understand why Sleeping Beauty's father had a Hall there. Maybe Cinderella looked up to him as a father figure since hers passed on and she offered him some rental property.

    Well it was called King Stephan's for many, many years. We still call it that in my family although sometimes we call it just the castle now. But in my 1985 Official Guide, the meals served were lunch and dinner and it was menu service not all you can eat. So it was a LONG time ago that you're remembering Samantha! Unless you could have two memories combined?

    Oops, it's King Stefan...and I should remember that because we still use glass mugs from there with his name on them! Anway, it says nothing about King Stefan being there. Sorry! Talks about quiche and a cold-vegetable salad for lunch and primerib, seafood and chicken served with vegetables and rice for dinner.

    I guess it has finally happened. I have aged just enough where my memories aren't even real!:confused: Oh well. Call the "home" and let them know I am ready now.;)

    From what I remember--and it was a long, long time ago, Samantha. Sorry! It wasn't an all you can eat buffet--it was all you could eat peel and eat shrimp. I was a kid, and distinctly remember people raving about those shrimp!!! As for King Stefan, I don't remember him being there. I remember wondering why he had a restaurant in the castle, though. If anyone else remembers, it was around the time that the Golf Resort (later the Disney Inn and now Shades of Green) was functioning over near the Golf courses. I remember eating at both King Stefan's and the Golf resort in the same trip. See? I told you it was a long, long time ago! I'm thinking 1979-82.

    It was 1984 for me. Well I guess that settles it. I am old! I don't even remember shrimp, but i do remember so guy in a robe and septer. HMMM, maybe my dad was cold that day...:rolleyes: That would explain the robe but not the septer.

    Disney changes things so frequently, your memories could be right. It may have been for just a short time that he was there (...or you could be remembering and confusing Old King Cole!)
