Dinner at Garden Grill
Characters Featured: Farmer Mickey, Pluto, Chip & Dale
Location: Epcot’s The Land
Reservation Time 6pm
We arrived at the Garden Grill restaurant for our anniversary and were seated immediately. This is the restaurant in Epcot that rotates through the different scenery of the Living with the Land ride. You move very slowly and don’t even notice you are moving. The food here was great. We had a salad with rolls and then were served turkey, flank steak, and catfish, with cheesy potatoes and veggies. The kids had chicken strips, fries, and mac and cheese. It was an all you care to eat meal and we requested more of the potatoes and turkey. The catfish was a little mushy for my likes. While we were eating we was visited by Farmer Mickey, Chip and Dale and Pluto. The characters make great time around the restaurant and we saw them all twice except Dale. Pluto was by three times though.
Dessert was great Troy and I had a cream pastry with berries on top and the kids had make your own cupcakes. This was a hit for the kids. We was at the Garden Grill for about an hour and 15 minutes. Everyone enjoyed this one and we would do it again.
Normally we only do 2 character meals each trip but this time we opted for the dining plan. With the dining plan we were able to have a character meal each day which was nice. Not only did the kids enjoy the meals but it was a nice break for us during the day when we didn’t have to wait in the character lines at the theme parks. The dining plan was definitely worth the extra money and is really a great deal for the kid’s price of the package. And with having the dining plan you will not go away hungry.
I would rate this meal an 8 and that is because the catfish was not up to expectation.
