    I meant to do a trip report! It was roughly $60 pp. it's at Hollywood Brown Derby. Table is limited to 12 guests. You sit in a private room with the Imagineer. It was amazing and completely worth the money.

    We were presented with name badges at check in

    We each received a personalized menu
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    There are 4 courses. I chose the filet as my entree. And the grapefruit cake for the dessert. It was all so yummy. Lots of chatting with our Imagineer.

    We were then given a "menu" of us with bio info on the Imagineer [​IMG]

    Then we were presented with souvenir plates that we could choose to have autographed or not. I chose to. [​IMG]

    They brought us a box to hold the plate. They offered to hold our items till we left the park if we wanted. We headed out after the meal so didn't take that option.

    Lunch started at 11:30am and lasted until almost 3. You have to book in advance of course but you don't pay till the end of the meal. I think they added the gratuity in. It was a little over $150 for the two of us.

    He also was kind enough to take individual pictures with us as well. [​IMG]

    I booked it using the online dining system. There is a little tab to book special dining events. It is only offered during the Mon to Fri workweek and not on an actual holiday. The site says that it is not suitable for children under 14. BUT there were 3 kids under 14 at our table. 2 from the same family and were 8 & 9 yr old boys. They were fantastically behaved! They also ate :worship: the other girl was probably 12 or so and she was also very well behaved. The kids were offered chicken noodle soup instead of the potato and leek soup. :tongue: I think one of the adults actually ordered the chicken noodle.

    I do NOT know if they take the dining plan credits or not. We weren't on the plan and paid OOP.
