Story Book Dining at Artist Point


As part of Disney’s new Character Dining experience, all guests will see Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and The Queen stroll through the Enchanted Forest while enjoying a bountiful prix fixe dinner with the choice of individually plated entrées and shared starters and desserts.

Start your storybook adventure with a wickedly refreshing cocktail like the Enchanted Apple with a hint of sour apple. I am happy to report the Royal Prime Rib Roast and the vegetarian A Stroll Through Nature are both returning as well as the decadent “Poison” Apple dessert with dark chocolate-apple mousse.

Boatwright

Enjoy the flavors of the Louisiana bayou with the all-you-care-to-enjoy Chef’s Platter featuring ribs, Nashville hot chicken, smoked sausage, and barbecued beef brisket with mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, street corn, and green beans. Have you been craving General Fulton’s Prime Rib or the Deep-South Shrimp and Grits? They are back as well as the signature Boatwright’s Jambalaya and the plant-based Boatwright’s Harvest Jambalaya. And for a touch of Southern sweetness, be sure to order up the Mississippi Mud Crème Brûlée, a decadent chocolate brûlée with a chocolate shortbread cookie.

Partake in hearty specialties and family-friendly American fare inspired by Southern Louisiana cookin’ on the bayou.

Hanging lanterns illuminate the cavernous dining hall, and the skeletal hull of a lugger fishing boat is suspended on high as its centerpiece. Warm yourself by the fire as you spy antique shipbuilding tools on the walls: C-clamps saw blades, axes and more.

Sample the tantalizing flavors of the Louisiana bayou on the All-You-Care-To-Enjoy Chef’s Platter—featuring such lip-smackin’ favorites as ribs, Nashville hot chicken, smoked sausage, beef brisket with corn, mashed potatoes, green beans, and mac and cheese. Keep rollin’ down the river with a helping of prime rib and deep-south shrimp and grits.

For dessert, Mississippi Mud Crème Brûlée weaves its sweet magic. A cavalcade of carnival-worthy cocktails is available to revelers 21 years of age and older, as is a kids’ menu for little picayunes.

Afterward, stop by the River Roost Lounge for the comedy and musical stylings of Yehaa Bob.
