Chip ‘n Dale’s Harvest Feast at the Garden Grill

Today I’m flashing back about 4 1/2 years ago to the boys’ first trip to Disney World. The very first place we went after checking into the hotel was Epcot and I had made a dinner reservation at Garden Grill.

Garden Grill is a rotating restaurant located inside The Land. If you aren’t familiar or haven’t been to Disney World, The Land is one of the pavilions in the Future World portion of Epcot. The restaurant rotates so that you can see different scenes from the Living with the Land attraction as you eat. Garden Grill is a character dining restaurant and features Chip ‘n Dale’s Harvest Feast. The meal here is served family style so they bring out platters for everyone to share. Here is the menu from when we went:

I wish this wasn't so blurry but here is what it says: Warm Bread with Maple Butter Harvest Inspired Farmer's Salad Char-grilled Beef Strip Loin with Herb Sea Salt Roasted All-Natural Turkey Breast with Cranberry-Orange Relish Sustainable Fish of the Day with a Florida Citrus Crumb Garden Fresh Vegetables, Smashed Potatoes and Turkey Dressing Apple-Current Crisp with Hand Whipped Vanilla Bean Cream Child's Platter Oven Roasted Chicken Drumstick, Baked Macaroni & Cheese, Broccoli, and Crispy Sweet Potato Sticks with Mickey "Mousse" Cookies & Cream

I wish this wasn’t so blurry but here is what it says:
Warm Bread with Maple Butter
Harvest Inspired Farmer’s Salad
Char-grilled Beef Strip Loin with Herb Sea Salt
Roasted All-Natural Turkey Breast with Cranberry-Orange Relish
Sustainable Fish of the Day with a Florida Citrus Crumb
Garden Fresh Vegetables, Smashed Potatoes and Turkey Dressing
Apple-Current Crisp with Hand Whipped Vanilla Bean Cream
Child’s Platter
Oven Roasted Chicken Drumstick, Baked Macaroni & Cheese, Broccoli, and Crispy Sweet Potato Sticks with Mickey “Mousse” Cookies & Cream

Since this was a couple of years ago the menu has changed but it is still fairly similar. Bread, salad, beef, turkey, and fish are basically always on the menu with the main difference being how they are served. For example, currently the bread is served with an Orange Blossom Honey Butter which sounds delicious. The current Sustainable Fish of the Day is served with Tomato Jam and the dessert is always a seasonal skillet dessert.

All of the food was delicious.

Now on to the characters. Characters here are Chip, Dale, Farmer Mickey, and Pluto. This was the boys’ first interaction at Disney World with the characters and JT was especially excited. He loved them, particularly his favorite, Mickey Mouse. I have more pictures of JT here than I do Connor because JT was just so excited and Connor is more on the shy side.

First up is Chip.

Mickey took JT by the hand and they walked away. JT was all too happy to go with him. He didn't even say goodbye.

I highly recommend eating at Garden Grill. It is one of my favorites and one of the best character dining restaurants in my opinion.

Who else has eaten here and what other restaurants are your favorites?
