Le Petit Chef on Celebrity Beyond


When you go on a cruise, one of the big things that a ship is judged on is its food. Quality. Quantity. What’s included; what's not and so on. Recently, I was on the Celebrity Beyond for an Eastern Caribbean sailing to St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. 
Usually I tend to stick to the included offerings for dining. The Oceanview CafĂ© (the buffet offering) is always good for me for breakfast and lunch, as is the four separate dining rooms, each of which offers the same dinner menu rotation, but also include dishes from the area of the world they represent; Normandie being French, Cosmopolitan being Continental, Cyprus being Greek, and Tuscan being Italian. 
On this last sailing I was convinced to try a specialty restaurant/dining experience by the name of Le Petit Chef. At this dining experience, you are seated at a table and a video show is presented all over your table, guided by none other than Le Petit Chef himself, as he makes your dinner. 
The animation portion of the show matches up to the main menu, so you actually see your dish being prepared and then it is served by your waiter. There is an alternate menu to choose from if you don’t want to have any or all of the courses however, the animation doesn’t match this alternate menu. I was fine with three out of the four courses that were served and only substituted one course, and I am a fairly picky eater. 
  
Le Petit chef was a great experience and certainly charmed everyone in my group. This is a great idea for a special occasion, or a celebration. Children will absolutely love this dining experience, but may not be comfortable with the menus. I would like to see alternate menus substituted in every so often, so it is a new and fresh experience each time. 
At $55 per person plus gratuity, this isn’t a cheap night out, but between the quality of the food and the presentation of the show, I think that for a special occasion, this is a great and unique dining experience for everyone in the family!

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

Planning Hack - 4 Best Times to Visit Walt Disney World

One of the biggest questions I get as a Disney travel planner is "what time of year should we visit Walt Disney World?" I give clients my suggestion on the four best times to visit Walt Disney World, and I've visited during each of these times. I've also visited outside of these dates and I've concluded that these times of the year have more benefits than other times. If you're going to spend the money, time and effort to plan the perfect vacation, it's worth it to go during one of these times. 1. Late January - If you don't like the Florida heat, this is the perfect time to go. Also, the Epcot International Festival of the Arts is happening during this time. The temps can  be unpredictable so make sure you pack a variety of clothing options and layers. Swimming is hit-or-miss in January. Crowd levels and resort room prices are low to moderate.  The Epcot International Festival of the Arts 2. Early May - It's hot, but the summer heat hasn't

Why you should stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort - Especially with a Big Family!

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort transports you to an island paradise! The atmosphere at the resort truly makes you feel like you're in the Caribbean.  The brand new under the sea rooms and the Disney Skyliner are just a few reasons why it's an excellent place to stay for families.  1. Accommodates a family of 6 Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is a very popular moderate level Disney Resort near Disney's Hollywood Studios. As a family of 6, we can stay here, even though it's advertised as having rooms that fit up to 5 guests. This works when one of the guests is age 2 and under. Most rooms have 2 queen beds. There are some rooms called a 5th sleeper room which also have a single bunk. This Murphy style bunk is perfect for most kids under 12, or about 5 feet tall. My kids love to have their own special bed. The infant or toddler can have a Pack 'N Play or a crib in the room as well. You can comfortably fit 4 adults, one child (under 12) and one infant in the 5t
