Lumiere's on the Disney Magic

Lumiere's on the Disney Magic is the upscale and elegant of the bunch when it comes to Main Dining Rooms.  As you'd expect being themed off a movie based in France, the menu is French inspired and this is where you will find some of the "fancier" food to give a try!  Lumiere's is located midship on Deck Three off the main atrium.  There are two entrances, the main entrance is off the atrium and the one from the hallway around the side is accessible and often used when there is an event or activity in the atrium.  Lumiere's is often also open for other meals throughout the day, and has a more standard menu when this is the case.

While French food can be intimidating, Disney does a great job making the menu approachable and still a bit familiar while working in some French influence and flavors.  If you are still a little weary of escargot, one of the best things about a Disney Cruise is that if you don't like something, they will gladly bring you something else!   That makes for a great opportunity to go outside your comfort zone and try something new.


On our voyage on the Disney Magic, Lumiere's was our first night dinner rotation so we got to start off with a bang.  (If you're on a longer cruise, you will only see this menu once even if you are in this restaurant multiple times.  Throughout the cruise there will be other specialty menus throughout all of the restaurants.)

All meals start with a bread course, and ours was no different.  We started with Warm French Country Bread with an Olive Spread.  They also have good old butter if you aren't feeling an olive spread.

Then we moved into the first course, trying not to fill up too much on bread!  This is where you could try escargot if you are interested, but we had tried it before and just weren't in the mood tonight.

Iced Lobster and Jumbo Shrimp – With Green Asparagus, Horseradish Cream and Dill Dressing
Breaded and Deep Fried Brie – With an Orange and Cranberry Chutney
Both appetizers were lovely, I'm especially a fan of deep fried brie and it's still one of my favorites after the cruise!  Such a nice twist on a classic fried cheese.  Next up was the Soup & Salad course, and on this night the soups spoke to us, so that's what we both chose for this round.

Potage Parmentier – Leek and Potato Soup
Onion Soup Gratinee – With Baguette and Gruyere Cheese
After we'd had our fill of warm yummy soup, we moved into the main course for the evening.

Crispy Roasted Duck Breast – With Cabbage, Bacon, Shallots, Honey Parsnip Puree, and a Duck Red Wine Jus
Chateaubriand-Roasted Filet Steak – Roasted Filet Steak, Crushed New Potatoes with Shallots, Buttered Green Beans, Red Wine Jus, and a Bearnaise Sauce on the Side
Both our main courses were good, and a sign of good things for the cruise ahead! After all that, it was a challenge but we did save room for dessert.  The souffle here is absolutely a highlight and we enjoyed ours immensely.  However, sometimes you just can't say no to an ice cream sundae and their version was delicious as well!
Grand Marnier Souffle – Infused with fresh Orange Zest and served with Grand Marnier Creme Anglaise
Strawberry Shortcake Sundae – Strawberries, Vanilla Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, and Shortcake

Overall it was a wonderful meal and we left there feeling stuffed and satisfied!

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.

As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.


Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals.

There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
