Memorable Disney Meal
Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Black. Enjoy the ride as we share with you our most memorable Disney dining experience.
If you are a loyal reader to this blog you know that I LOVE dining at Disney! It is a wonderful place to dine for many reasons. First, there are very diverse menus. Many people do not know this - they assume that since it's a theme park, you are limited to burgers, pizza and french fries. However, that could not be any further from the truth. Second, as someone who has food allergies, Disney does a great job making people feel comfortable in situations such as mine.
However, the dining experience that immediately came to my mind wasn't a normal meal on a normal Disney vacation. My most memorable meal was from D23's Magic and Merriment in 2009. It was a terrific trip - we had so many VIP experiences such as a visit to the Cinderella Castle Suite, a personal tour of the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, and VIP seating at the Candlelight Processional.
The most memorable part of the trip, however, was a meal that we had on the set of Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show. That's right, on the set! After a fabulous viewing of the Candlelight Processional, we boarded buses backstage behind the America pavilion and they drove us directly to the back of Lights, Motors, Action! We walked through the tunnel (where Herby the Love Bug comes through) and onto an amazing set.
There were tables set with linens, glasses and ceramic place settings. Each side had a carving station with amazing fresh meats, pastas, and veggies. There were waiters and waitresses walking around serving drinks. There were spotlights on the set and Christmas music flooding the area. It was such an amazing atmosphere!
As if it weren't enough, all of a sudden Mickey came by with his Santa suit on!
I will never forget this special evening - an evening that cannot be replicated on any regular trip!
