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!

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Disney's BoardWalk Inn Review

From the eclectic d├ęcor to the panoramic views of Crescent Lake, the BoardWalk Inn gives you the sense that you have stepped back in time.  That time being circa 1920-1940’s Atlantic City.  The exterior of the hotel is reminiscent of the seaside buildings that could be found along the Boardwalk from that bygone era full of old time glitz and glamour.  Driving through the port couture at the front of the building, surrounded by finely manicured gardens you are met with enthusiastic porters that are there to welcome you home as they take your bags and guide you into the hotel lobby. Chandelier in the Lobby Once inside, the eclectic furnishings are precise replicas of what you would expect to find in the grandest hotels from that moment in time.  As you enter the lobby, look up to see the beautiful chandelier made of antique carousel horses that sits high above the lobby with the check in desk located to your left as well as a small sundry shop and the hallway that leads to the villa
