So we were in the Cab (We used alot of Cabs staying at the Treehouses, but it was soo worth it)…..We pulled up to the Grand Floridian and Pete asked me if we were eating at Narcossee’s? I told him Nope? He was still wondering.
We went into the Lobby. It is so pretty inside. I love it. We found a seat. Pete asked again what we were doing here and I told him that we were listening to the music.
Then a man in a tux walks up to us and asks if we are Mr. & Mrs. Reese. I told himm yes. He said follow me. Pete looks at me like I am nuts. We follow Howard to the elevator. He puts a key card in and we head upstairs. He leads us out to a balcony to this:
Pete was floored! We take our seats and I tell him all about our Private dinner that I had arranged. I got to hand pick each item on the menu.
Truffle French Toast with Shrimp & Wild Mushrooms
Pretzel Bread served with Soup and Salads
Cheddar Cheese Soup
French Onion Soup
Spinach Salad in Parmesan Bowl with Bacon & Hard Boiled Eggs, and Ranch Dressing
Field Greens Salad in a Parmesan Bowl with Feta Cheese, Cashews, & Citrus Vinaigrette
Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breast with Mushroom Veloute, Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans.
NY Strip with Red Wine Sauce, Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes, Balsamic Roasted Mushrooms & Asparagus
Special Wishes dessert from bakery & Mini Castle Cake in Cheesecake
Pete was in shock. He had no idea this was an option.
Now this was a TON of food. We ate maybe half and we were there for over 3 hours. We talked and laughed and remembered the wedding. The Butler took his time and was never in the way. He left us alone alot. We did talk to him about being on the private dining team. He has done it for over 20 years and loves it. He told us all about the rich people who stay at the Grand Floridian. He said after 30 days you have to check out and check back in. He also told us about the rich people who come with their nannys and stuff. He was a great guy!
As he brought out desert Wishes started. It was perfect! We had a great view and we snuggled up and enjoyed the show. I didn’t tak emany pictures during Wishes at all. I wanted to enjoy my time with my boy!
Once that was over the butler brought me the bill! Holy COw! LOL It was so worth it! Then he gave me a guft from the Grand Floridian. It was a White Chocolate picture of the hotel!
We got him to snap a picture for us and then we headed down to the lobby.
They had just started work on the new marble floor. It is so pretty!
While we were wining and dining Alyssa was having some fun pool time!
Saratoga Springs has a great pool!
By the time we got home Alyssa was sleeping, so was her Mom and Dad. We packed up as much as we could since tomorrow we head to the ship! We were going to go to the pool, but instead I decided I needed one more bath in that amazing bathtub!
