Cinderella's Royal Table


When it is a little prince or princess’s first time dining at Cinderella’s Castle, you know it is going to be a special day! 
 
Upon entering Cinderella Castle, you are in awe of its grandness. Every time I come here, I am still taken with the breathtaking details and beauty of this castle. And of course, I am most thrilled to see my two favorite characters, Jaq and Gus-Gus, hanging out in the castle, keeping a watchful eye over Cinderella. 
Do you see Jaq and Gus-Gus?
Those who dine here will begin their experience with a photo and an opportunity to meet with Cinderella*. Once formally introduced to our host, you will be escorted up the grand staircase to your dining area. (Character dining is currently not available at this restaurant due to COVID-19 guidelines.)

After receiving wishing stars, wands, and swords, dinner will begin.

Cinderella, of course, did not invite you here to dine alone. On this particular evening, we had the honor of meeting Rapunzel, Aurora, Snow White and Ariel*! Cinderella’s friends may change from time to time. They are busy princesses after all!

We started our meal with an assortment of charcuterie and the Castle Salad. I highly recommend everyone ordering something different so you can try a bit of everything!

Dinner for the grown-ups was the beef and the kids had it too! Remember what I said about trying a bit of everything? We couldn’t help it! 

For dessert, the grown-ups enjoyed the Jaq and Gus. I cannot resist the words cheesecake, and it was named after my favorite two mice. Sorry Mickey! At first glance, I was expecting a dense traditional cheesecake. This had all the flavor and decadence but without the feeling of leaving uncomfortable and stuffed! The kiddo’s had the most fun though. At Cinderella’s, you can play with your dessert! The build your own cupcake dessert, the littlest guests are able to fully customize their own cupcake. And the best part, eating the sprinkles and frosting that is left over! 
The menu items we ordered were:

Castle Salad
Hearty Mixed Greens, Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, Riesling-marinated Golden Raisins, Pink Lady Apples, and Maple-Balsamic Vinaigrette (Plant-based)

Charcuterie
A Chef's selection of Cured Meats, Castle Pickles, and Accompaniments

Tenderloin of Beef
Grilled Beef Tenderloin, Celery Root Mash, Seasonal Vegetables, and Sauce Bordelaise

Jaq & Gus
Whipped Cheesecake with Seasonal Flavors and Garnishes

Beef Tenderloin (Kids' Menu)
Served with choice of two (2) Selections and choice of Small Lowfat Milk or Small Minute Maid® Apple Juice

Build-Your-Own-Cupcake (Kids' Menu)
Vanilla Cupcake with Cinderella’s Blue Icing and decorations to garnish your Royal Dessert

*Character Dining is currently not available at this location. 
**Photos and personal experience at Cinderella's Royal Table were taken prior to COVID-19 safety protocols

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

Narcoossee’s – A Forgotten Favorite

Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort I’ve been vacationing at Walt Disney World since I was four years old.   Throughout the years, I have eaten at countless restaurants across the parks and resorts.   I have my fair share of favorites that I always make sure to visit on each trip but some restaurants just don’t make the cut on each and every trip.   Sadly, Narcoossee’s was one of those restaurants. I had been to Narcoossee’s once as a child and I remember enjoying the view and the food but I didn’t have a lot of memories of the place.   On a trip in 2009 with my parents, we decided to revisit the restaurant and we all enjoyed our meal but for some reason it just didn’t stand out to me.   Thankfully, we decided to go back to Narcoossee’s in 2012 and it was one of our favorite meals of the trip!   A forgotten favorite had returned as a front-runner for my favorite restaurant and this time, I wasn’t going to forget it! I've visited Narcoossee's on almost all t
