La Creperie de Paris


October 1st was a special day at Walt Disney World Resort as it kicked off the Most Magical Celebration for the 50th anniversary of the parks in Florida.  While many people flocked to the Magic Kingdom, we made our way over to Epcot as it was also the grand opening of Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and La Creperie de Paris in the France Pavilion in World Showcase.

This new area is a stunning addition to the already beautiful pavilion, and since it is new, the area is definitely seeing its fair share of traffic right now.  La Creperie has a quick service window for crepes to go, but we opted for the full table service experience for our first time here.  We arrived at park opening and after about a 20 minute wait we were escorted to our table and greeted by our server who was absolutely fantastic.  *Please note, now that the restaurant has been open for a while, it has gone to the reservation system and walk up availability may be limited or not offered.  Honestly, all of the Cast Members we were to encounter on this day were going to be wonderful, but he definitely got us off on the right foot.  

We decided to go all in and did the Prix Fixe Menu each, for $33 for three courses and a beverage, it seemed like a great deal to us! Our sparkling ciders came in no time, but we also saw plenty of people kicking off their day with mimosas as well which would be a great pairing to this meal too.  We chose a demi sec and a rose, and both were delightful.  We went with a soup and a salad to start, and then let our server guide us to the best crepe options to order and were on our way to a three course breakfast.
Salade Maison: mixed greens, tomatoes (no tomatoes) onions & vinaigrette
Soupe du Jour: it was potato and leek today

The salad was crisp and refreshing with just the right amount of dressing.  Nothing too fancy at all, which was really just lovely.  The soup was comforting yet surprisingly light on flavor, setting you up for the meal ahead.  Also, I really just loved the bowl it was served in.

In no time it was time for another round of drinks and our savory crepes, otherwise known as galettes.  These are made with a buckwheat flour which I enjoyed, but if you prefer a lighter crepe you can request they be made with the dessert crepe batter.  We ordered the Chevre and the Savoyarde but the Classique was also recommended and seemed to be very popular and well liked as well from tables around us.  

Savoyarde: raclette cheese, onion, imported Bayonne ham
Chevre: goat cheese, spinach, walnuts

Both of these crepes were honestly so good, but for me the star was the savoyarde.  That imported ham was just something special and really elevated the whole dish.  The crepes weren't overly filled so there was a great balance between filling and crepe with every bite with familiar yet unique flavors.  The walnuts on the chevre dish added a great bit of crunch and texture as well.

While we were already starting to get full, it was time for our sweet crepes to come.  We once again went with our server's recommendations and went with the Gourmande and the Melba, adding a shot of Grand Marnier to the Melba for a little extra kick.  You can also add whipped cream or ice cream to any crepe for an additional charge as well. 

Melba: peach, red berries sauce, almonds
Gourmande: hazelnut chocolate spread, whipped cream
Once again both choices were really wonderful, and overall we were so impressed with our meal here.  For me, the Gourmande edged out the Melba because I like chocolate and the little crispies on top really did it for me.  The grand marnier added a great depth of flavor to the Melba though and they were certainly not stingy with that extra shot at all! 

The atmosphere is casual and relaxed yet nice, the service was spectacular, and the food was wonderful and at a great price point.  We left feeling stuffed and ready to tackle the day at Epcot.  I would highly recommend this restaurant based on this experience and will definitely be making a trip back in the future!

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
