Epcot is a busy park these days! Each visit finds construction progress, menu updates, and new must-have merchandise! See what we found this week!
We started our visit out checking on the progress of the Guardians of the Galaxy attraction.
Epcot is busy getting ready for the Flower and Garden Festival to start next week, but that isn’t all that is happening! We found so many changes, lots of new merchandise, the return of a hidden gem, and as always lots of construction progress!
We didn’t let a rainy day spoil our time in Epcot — see everything that’s new here!
Our weekly visit to Epcot includes a bunch of construction updates — including seeing part of the track for the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride!
The Guardians of the Galaxy ride isn’t the only thing going on Epcot right now, there’s also the addition of the Ratatouille Ride in the France Pavilion, TWO brand new restaurants, prep work for the new nighttime show, and more must-have merchandise!
We’re in Epcot checking out what’s new this week! The restaurants are busy adding some seasonal treats as well as fall flavors! Construction is moving forward on a variety of attractions! Let’s take a closer look…
With Le Cellier Steakhouse now a TWO table-service credit restaurant for both lunch and dinner on the Disney Dining Plan, the restaurant has changed over to an all-day menu (effective January 16, 2013).
Located in Epcot’s Canada, this signature restaurant’s all-day menu means that guests looking for a burger will no longer find one here. (Total bummer, as it was one of our favorites.) But the lobster mac ‘n cheese will now be available for lunch and dinner.
For starters, Le Cellier’s chopped lobster salad or bowl of the cult favorite Cheddar Cheese Soup are excellent choices. Don’t forget about the poutine fries, too (Hubba Hubba)!
Plus, the seasonal salad now being offered is greens with duck prosciutto, blue cheese, fig-almond cake and a soft-boiled egg.
Entrees are still plentiful, and steak-focused. Canadian-raised beef choices include a grilled bone-in ribeye, New York Strip, and the famous (and awesome) Filet Mignon.
That Filet Mignon is a fan favorite with its white truffle-butter sauce and wild mushroom risotto.
Vegetarians will continue to enjoy seasonal offerings, including a winter squash ravioli with sage brown butter. And the menu includes year-round sustainable seafood by Chef Al Youngman.
For dessert, the Maple Creme Brulee and Trio of Chocolate are [Read more…]
The time has come. As we reported last August, Le Cellier is now a 2-credit, signature dining location for dinner.
The veggie entree sounds great. But what are pea tendrils? I’ve posted the full menu at the bottom of this post, but first, let’s analyze what’s different…
Appetizers have almost completely changed out. Remaining are the cheddar cheese soup (now priced at $9 versus the previous $6.99) and the Spicy Chicken and Chipotle Sausage with roasted corn polenta and sweet onion jam (now called “artisan” spicy chicken and chipotle sausage with roasted corn polenta and sweet onion jam, and priced at $12 instead of $9.99…that’s one pricey “artisan”).
The steakhouse caesar salad is still around, but this time it costs $9 instead of $6.99, and it has pretzel croutons versus the sourdough croutons it sported in the past.
I’m LOVING the addition of the artisinal cheese plate, of course. And there’s honeycomb, which means I’m happy as a clam.
Entrees: The basics have stayed the same. The New York Strip is still there, but now costs $42 instead of $34.99; the salmon is now Pacific King Salmon instead of [Read more…]
