The Refreshment Cool Post gets into the spirit of the holidays with a couple of exclusive Festival offerings.
We’ll also reconsider the Frozen Brown Elephant.
The Shanghai Kitchen is located in the usual Festival spot across from the China Pavilion.
Like the Mexican Kitchen that preceded it, each of the food items are a new take on familiar flavors.
Las Posadas, which is a reference to the Inn in the story of the birth of Jesus, is the first Festival of the Holidays Kitchen on the walk into Mexico. It takes up residency in the usual spot before arriving at the pyramid on the lagoon side.
The menu features three food items that are similar to what we’ve seen in the past, though each is a new take. Three margaritas accompany along with the beer with coffee liqueur floater.
Narcoossee’s is the Grand Floridian Resort’s standalone, waterfront signature restaurant that “serves a spectacular, innovative selection of fresh seafood from both local waters and around the globe.” At least according to Narcoossee’s.
Like you, probably, it’s not a restaurant that I typically consider when I’m making dinner plans somewhere around the resort. I’ve always thought the food and drinks at Citricos tasted better and offered more innovative flavors.
And I’m not typically a fan of marrying sky-high prices with an overtly casual, easy-breezy restaurant atmosphere.
We’ll take a moment to visit the Atrium Club Level Lounge on the 12th floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Our last Club Level stay was in July at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, which I review here. Next month, Erin and I are off to the Polynesian to give that a go.
Club Level at the Contemporary has one striking benefit that isn’t shared with any of the other Deluxe Resorts.
