Go “Under the Sea” or have dinner with the Disney characters in two different dining options for Mother’s Day on May 9.
For brunch, Tables in Wonderland is creating a special “Under the Sea Garden” at Epcot in the Living Seas Salon, on the second floor of The Seas with Nemo & Friends pavilion. With fab views of the saltwater aquarium, this is one of the most unusual “backstage” spots for parties.
There are two seatings, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and from 2 to 4 p.m. Price is $95 per person, plus tax (gratuity included). For reservations, email WDW.Tables.In.Wonderland@disney.com with your name, daytime phone number, home address and number in your party. You’ll be notified on a first-come, first-served basis. Credit card information will be taken by phone once a reservation is confirmed. The event is limited to 108 guests per seating, and you must be a Tables in Wonderland member to attend.
Three courses include strawberries with Devonshire cream; traditional Nicoise salad; filet mignon, petite tenderloin of beef on English muffins, poached eggs and Bearnaise, potatoes and asparagus; crepes, chocolate lava cake with vanilla gelato, pastries, fruit and berries. Mimosas, magnolias and sparkling wine included!
Tables in Wonderland is for Florida residents only and is $100 a year ($75 for annual or seasonal passholders).
For evening fun, the casual Garden Grove at the Walt Disney World Swan is trading in its usual barbecue buffet for a Mom’s Day dinner from 5 to 9:30 p.m. with chef interactive stations and food a mom could love: Florida grouper, pesto-crusted Cornish hens, beef tenderloin, wild mushroom ravioli and more (with plenty of sweets). Kids get mac ‘n cheese, mini-corn dogs and chicken tenders. And the Disney characters make anyone smile for priceless family photos.
Cost is $34.95, $15.95 ages 3 to 9 (not including tax and gratuity).
