We went while on vacation for our anniversary, and saw the event for the prix fixe menu. The service from the hosts to our server, Jonathan, was fantastic. Everyone was welcoming and very attentive. The food was delicious and the timing of the meal (we had three courses) was perfect.

Food was kind of bland except for dessert. Waitress was nice but hit and run when serving and also dropped dessert at the table without spoons (chocolate mousse). Had to ask hostess for spoons. It was unfortunate it was like that because we have been eating breakfast there all week and that is great. Dinner just disappointed us for the price.

The breakfast buffet at The Kitchen is the best. This is our 5th time having the buffet and it is awesome. Staff is very attentive to your needs and even with the pandemic we felt safe. Many different foods to try include pancakes, french toast, breakfast meats, fruit, cereals, eggs, and pastries. Almost forgot-they also do custom made omelets.

We came over for brunch and was wowed at everything that was included for the price, especially compared to the a la carte menu. Rashid was our server and he was personable and very attentive. Always with drink refills and removing plates without even asking. Excellent experience whether you’re staying on property or just want a good breakfast.

Had a lovely dinner with the family. Enjoyed the Magical Dining menu options and meal was prepared to perfection.
I had the Filet and it was melt in your mouth tender.

The velvet cake was recommended by our server and it was delicious, very rich and meant to be shared but if you like chocolate that is where it's at!

My salmon was overcooked and they offered to cook me a new one but I was too hungry to wait after spending all day at the parks. They offered a free dessert for the inconvenience and that was amenable for me. Even though overcooked compared to what I ordered, the food was still delicious and I would return. The customer service was on point. I wish I could remember his name, but honestly, I was so tired I didn't pay close enough attention. He certainly was attentive though! Drinks never ran dry, he pre-bussed all the dishes from our table, brought us to go containers for our leftovers, and had our desserts packed up for us to take back to the room to eat. He was just as attentive to all of his other tables as well not leaving anyone feeling ignored. Would definitely return on our next trip.
