308 Three Dream Girls and a whole lot of breakfasts

Welcome to the show notes for the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 308, for Sunday the 5th April 2020. If you want to listen, whilst reading these notes, just click the player below or alternatively find us on iTunes, Libsyn, Stitcher Radio or via any good podcast catching apps. 

On this week's show, we are joined by the lovely Becky Manion to review a trio of Disney brunches that she enjoyed during a recept Walt Disney World trip. In addition, we also talk about what is happening regarding annual passes and Disney staff as well as ending the show with how we are filling our days with Disney. 

We start with the brunch at Chef Art Smiths.
The menu option is a la carte or one Disney dining credit. We go through the menu and discuss the options and Becky reveals what she tried.

We all agreed that the food and drink options were very tempting and all of us said that we would like to visit here.

The next brunch was the Bon Voyage Breakfast at the Trattoria al Forno restaurant. 

This is a set price meal ($45 for adults) and consisted of pastries, a main course, and a beverage. It starts at 7.30am and runs till midday.

The big draw, of course, is the character interaction. Here you can meet Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Ariel, and Prince Eric.
Alas, Becky was not impressed. Her food was quite dry and thought the price point was (although comparable to other character breakfasts) too steep for the food offered. 

Next, our final eatery - Le Cellier. They were offering a special brunch during the Festival of the Arts. 

Their meal started with a bowl of pastries for the table. 
Then an entree, dessert, and coffee. In her party, they enjoyed the eggs benedict and the avocado toast. To finish, she tried the coffee and doughnuts whilst her dad had the creme brulee.  
The brunch was offered 11am till 3pm and was 2 dining credits or $67. Becky found the restaurant a little dark - especially when it was a lovely sunny day outside and she didn't really want to be inside. 
The food was nice but worth the $67 - no as for a bit more she could have enjoyed the far superior brunch at the California Grill. 

After enjoying talking through all of the food, we looked at some available merchandise - have you seen the new dip-dye spirit jersey? 
We end the show talking about how we are filling our days with Disney. What are you doing?
