If you get the chance to go to the Storybook Dining experience at the Wilderness Lodge then I would say go!! This wonderful event is held in the Artist Point dining area.
I’d never been lucky enough to be in this area before and it’s beautiful. It’s complete with forest theming with warm green and brown colors fit for the Snow White story. One of my favorite parts of the is area was the lighting. I’m really a huge fan of the craftsman style lighting used all over this resort and this area is just as beautiful. The lighting hangs from “trees” that sort of grow out of the ground in the dining room.
Like all character meals at Disney this one is very well orchestrated. You are presented with a menu that is bound in a leather folder organized like a story.
First we were brought out a selection of appetizers. I have to say, I had to ask twice what the selections were because they were outside my normal wheelhouse of descriptions! My favorite of these would have to be the mushroom soup. It was creamy and delicious! Then onto the main entrees! I ordered prime rib and it was outstanding! Perfectly prepared and wonderful!
While we were eating we were visited by Snow White, Dopey and Grumpy.
At the end of dinner and some great character interaction we were brought out our dessert selections!!! As if dinner wasn’t awesome enough the desserts were so good! We were brought “poison” red apples with chocolate mousse centers, tasty Miner’s Treasure with cake and chocolate gems and Gooseberry Pie! Each of these were wonderful and delicious, but then they brought out the final dessert in a glass box filled with caramel corn and chocolates. This is called the Hunters gift to the Queen and when they take the lid off the dry ice smoke flows out in a very cool effect. The other desserts were fantastic but this one wins the prize for dramatic effects.
The final part of the evening was getting to meet and get pictures with the Evil Queen. The Evil Queen was perfect and her expressions were down right scary. What a great way to end a great evening.
The evening was fantastic and if I had to think of a negative part it would be time. I would have liked more time. It felt a little rushed but it could have just been my excitement to be there. Magical times just fly by don’t they? If you have any comments or questions feel free to ask them below!
