Review of Be Our Guest Dinner

I don't dole out a "10" rating lightly, but Be Our Guest deserves it.
Our waiter, Chris, was amazing. He told us when to have our cameras ready so we could get a picture of the Beast when he made his surprise entrance (we also got to take pictures with him in the library).
The wine was awesome (Chris recommended Conundrum--it was AMAZING), so was the beer.
The charcuterie board was delicious, but be warned it has two pates (but we love pate!).
Entrees were good--the steak and pork chops were the favorites, the seafood in puff pastry was just okay.
Dessert was awesome--the strawberry cupcake is the best. We had a birthday in our party and got to try "the grey stuff!" So cute!
And of course, the atmosphere is better than anything Disney has ever done before!

Pros:

Food, service, atmosphere, pictures with Beast!

Cons:

None

I think our not-so-great experience was due to our waiter. We came right at 4 pm just so we could grab some appetizers and beers while sitting in the AC, and were in and out in 20 minutes. Our waiter was clearly mad that we weren't ordering a full meal, and became rude. Honestly, the food was just average. The restaurant was beautiful, though, and I'm hoping our poor service was a one time occurrence. We'll give it another try one day.
Oh, and the annual pass discount is only good on entrees. Odd.

Pros:

Decor

Cons:

Only place we had bad service, weird annual pass discount

Stopped in for a quick snack (yay for edamame--we had enough pretzels and baked goods by the time we got to Japan)! The setting is beautiful!

Pros:

Beautiful setting at night, edamame

Cons:

None

The egg rolls here were good--one step above Chinese takeout.

The peach oolong tea was not good. It was like drinking a peach jolly rancher.

Pros:

Eggrolls, lots of seating, friendly service

Cons:

Peach Oolong tea was gross

A good empanada (and gosh, I do love them) can make up for lots of shortcomings. In this case, that included stale chips, not enough tables, and slow service. But the empanadas and salsa were first rate!

Pros:

Yummy empanadas, good salsa

Cons:

Stale chips, not enough seating, slow service

So sad that there was no charm here, since I love France (the EPCOT version and the real deal)! That being said, service was pleasant and efficient. The cheese plate was a great value at $10. 4 out of the 5 cheeses were good!

Pros:

Cheese plate

Cons:

Kind of sterile, no charm

The servers here were SO nice. Of course the fish & chips are great, and the potato & leek soup was good too.
We sat outside on a cold night, but there were heaters on the patio. The only problem was that they glowed red, so we kind of felt like we were dining in Dante's inferno!

Pros:

Great service, awesome fish and chips

Cons:

Weird outdoor lighting

We ordered a special occasion cake, and the staff was awesome at boxing it up for us, and sticking it in the fridge for us to get later. Also, the staff deserves a medal for trying their best to calm three screaming kids (a baby and two elementary schoolers that should have known better) whose parents were oblivious to the fact that they were ruining everyone else's meal.
The steak was amazing, so was the tomato and mozzarella salad. Suggest making late dinner reservations for maybe less screaming kids?

Pros:

Awesome service and food

Cons:

Tight quarters mean screaming kids are very loud

Review of Port Orleans Riverside Resort (Moderate Resort)

Food Court: Nice selection, especially the grab & go section. If you're eating healthy there is milk (skim, 1%, whole), fruit (apples, bananas, clementines, grapes), yogurt, veggies & hummus, veggies and dip. Good waffles, potatoes, and bacon in the morning. The eggs were the only thing that weren't edible. We were there during a non-busy time, and the food courts were always packed for breakfast. It might be worthwhile to get cereal/fruit/etc. the night before and keep it in your fridge if it is busy. The food courts were fine during lunch.

Boatwrights: AWESOME. We ate there twice. Abita beer on tap, delicious crawfish bites, salad, mac & cheese, cornbread.

River Roost Lounge: Again, Abita on tap (get the flight of 3 beers). Awesome lounge snacks--try the sliders. YeeHaw Bob wasn't really for us (we're in our 30s) but lots of others seemed entertained. He starts at 8:30 Wed through Sat if you want to hear his show (or not).

Bus stops: We never waited more than 10 minutes for a bus at the resort or the parks. The South Depot has a TON of people, so we walked a little extra to the West depot.

Rooms: Awesome! We stayed in Alligator Bayou in a king room. We were put in a preferred building (#14) without paying the preferred price. :) Loved the bed--very comfy.

Overall: This resort is gorgeous, and we liked it more than Animal Kingdom. Definitely recommended!

Pros:

Quiet, beautiful, nice rooms, Abita beer on tap!

Cons:

Crowded food court at breakfast, potentially long walks depending on your building
