Disney Dream Girls Show 126 - Questions Answered and a Trip to The Boathouse

Welcome to the show notes for the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 126 for Sunday 25th September 2016. As always, if you wish to listen now, whilst looking at these pictures, click on the player below.

On the podcast, we answer two listeners questions. The first being a request for the perfect gift from Walt Disney World and the second was a select restaurants to dine in at Disneyland Paris. To hear our answers, listen to the show.
Then we moved on to review the Boathouse Restaurant, which opened in Disney Springs earlier this year. Firstly, the scenery was reminiscent of an actual boathouse. Very light and airy, despite all of the wooden trim and the boating artefacts. From checking in to wait staff everyone I saw dealt with me courteously - making me feel very welcome.
Gin and strawberry based drink
As we had arrived at the table early, I ordered a drink from the bar. It was very refreshing and quite strong too. Just the ticket on a warm late August afternoon in Florida.

My Main from Maine
Finale - our dessert
The starters we had were Florida style smokehouse fish dip with white corn tortilla chips and also hoisin chilli calamari. The dip was very light and the chips weren't greasy. It worked really well with the slight kick of the calamari. The two started amply served the four of us.
My main was the 1 1/4lb split baked crab filled lobster served with asparagus and Creole butter sauce. The lobster was cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. However, as in the case of all lobster, extraction of the lobster from the shell was tricky but the claws had been pre-cracked to make matters easier. We ended our meal with the smores baked alaska. Each and every item was flavoursome and in my opinion good value for the quality and quantity of food served.  I must add... the baked alaska was huge and made a ceremonial entry to our table. Our waiter prepared our servings table side and I swear I heard intakes of breath due to its huge size! 
Shotski Time
Our evening ended with the management organising a shotski to be drunk on the jetty - a perfect and a fun ending to the evening. Each glass with filled with blueberry vodka and was good fun - if not a challenge due to my friend Stephen being over a foot taller than me!

The show ended with a massive birthday shout out to the wonderful Tom Ameen and I shared his rendition of Firework by Katy Perry.
