When you arrive at 1900 Park Fare, you check in to let them know you have arrived. We had a very short wait between checking in and being seated. We were directed to a photo area. Unlike the other princess meals we have experienced, there is no character in the photo, but still, I really love getting photos of the entire family. These were then brought around to our table while we were eating, and of course, I purchased the photo package. The photos were presented in a 1900 Park Fare folder. This included a large photo, along with several smaller ones and a recipe card for their signature Strawberry Soup. On the back of the folder is a brief overview of carousels in America with the title "The Year is 1900, the golden age of the carousel in America."
I loved this particularly buffet! I am a huge fan of salmon and I was not disappointed with this citrus glazed option. My husband really enjoyed the Guinness stew. I think Joey's eyes almost popped out of his head when he saw they had peel and eat shrimp. I think he could have eaten the entire platter had we let him! We were both excited to see that sushi was also an option, and we were sure to enjoy our share of that! There were more varieties of salads than I could have tried at one sitting, but the ones I did taste were delicious! From pasta to ribs to potatoes to soup, there was something for everyone. Even the pickiest of eaters could find something here to enjoy. The kids had their own section of the buffet that included chicken drumsticks, pasta and sauce and pizza. I was not particularly excited about Emily eating pasta and sauce in her Snow White dress, but luckily, her dress stayed clean. We'll chalk that up to Disney magic at work! Needless to say, my children were quite satisfied by the end of their meal.
I am so happy we made the decision to try out 1900 Park Fare. I loved the setting and our character interactions were quite fun, especially with the sisters! Everyone in our family left full and satisfied by the food choices. And of course, we were just a monorail ride away to bring my two princesses to the Magic Kingdom for the Main Street Electrical Parade. With them all dolled up as Cinderella and Snow White, they received a lot of extra attention. Would we go back to 1900 Park Fare? My parents, my husband, my girls and myself would all say yes. Joey is a firm no, but that is because he is apparently in a stage of total rebellion against princesses .... though that may have more to do with the amount of princess things we have around here at home that his sisters are always trying to "share" with him!
Have you experienced 1900 Park Fare? I would love to know what you think of it!
