Hi all, Just thought I'd quickly pass along my experience with the lunch with an imagineer program, as it was the highlight of our trip, and something I had trouble finding much info about myself prior to the trip. My mom and I signed up for this, which includes a 4 course lunch at the Brown Derby at MGM (a fav of ours anyway) in a private room with plenty of time to talk to your imagineer about what they do. Our imagineer was Jason Surrell, who wrote the book about the Haunted Mansion movie and attraction and is an Imagineer writer for Disney. He not only does the spiels for attractions and the monorail and so forth, but he also helps condense ideas from meetings of designers and engineers and so forth down to a page that everyone involved in the creation of something can work off of and have the same goals and ideas in mind. It was incredibly interesting to hear what all he does and just to chat with someone as interested in all things Disney as I am. The food was incredible, as always. The meal started with a corn chowder (normally served w/oysters in it, but we opted out of them...not a fan) with a lime frisee topping, then a mini version of the cobb salad, followed by your choice of 3 entrees (grouper, which was INCREDIBLE, filet mignon, or a bbq chicken dish), and finally a bananas foster cheesecake for dessert. They were very accomodating to any requests you had for the dishes. We were in our very own private room (the Bamboo room, which actually Jason had helped design) and the manager of the restaurant welcomed us and then came to make sure that everything was ok at the end (and stayed and chatted with us for awhile, which was great!). We were told it could be anywhere from 2 to 8 people at the lunch, in addition to the imagineer. It turned out to just be my mom and I. This was definitely the highlight of our trip and we would do it again on another trip. It is an expensive experience...over 60 dollars a person, but worth every penny. I highly recommend it to anyone who really loves Disney and wants to find out more about what Imagineers do and talk to someone who really loves Disney. To put it in perspective, we also did the KTTK tour, only slightly less expensive, and were rather disappointed in the experience, as we learned very few new things, and mostly spent the time getting shoved onto rides, rather than seeing or learning anything new. Any questions, feel free to ask... I can't say enough great things about this experience!!!
