We kicked the night off with an amazing Be Our Guest meal and the chance to mingle with Chef Michael Deardorff and the other geniuses behind the delicious dishes. During the meal, Walt Disney Imagineering’s Chris Beatty, Diego Parras and Diedra Ashley offered one-of-a-kind tours of the West Wing and Rose Gallery dining rooms.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Disney Parks Blog Meet-Up without a surprise guest. Beast made a special appearance at the restaurant and greeted the crowd as the dinner service wrapped up.
Before the night ended, everyone received a few surprises, including an exclusive Disney Parks Blog poster created by Jeff Maurer and a Disney FASTPASS to enjoy Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid.
This was one of my favorite meet-ups of the year – thank you to everyone who helped make the night so special. If you didn’t get a chance to attend, please keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for information about our next meet-up opportunity.
