Post Marathon celebration!

How did I celebrate my first official marathon? By having the best BFF in the world surprise me with reservations to Be Our Guest for out celebratory dinner! Smart planner that he is was lucky enough to book them on the day reservations opened.


We ate in the grand ballroom that happens to look exactly how it does in the movie all the way down to the tiles on the floor; the host told us so. It was lovely atmosphere, but a tad loud. But it's a big ballroom; what do you expect? I heard that sitting in the west wing was more intimate and if you want to sit there, you should request when you arrive.
That's also where the rose is!

We got the grey stuff and it was delicious!

The master was receiving guests throughout the night, so once dinner was over, we got to get our picture with him. He would also walk around the grand ballroom and trumpets would announce his presence. It was all very fancy and grand (hence my fancy sparkle skirt and running shoes). Would you expect anything else? :)

Since we pretty much closed down the place, we sneaked in the hallway which is the entrance for the quick service lunch. Because we were the only ones in there, we could clearly hear the knights talking to each other, but I'm assuming during the hussle and bussle of lunch, you'd have to listen closely.


I was pleasantly surprised by the food; sometimes Disney food, no matter where, starts to taste the same after awhile. The french onion soup and pork chop with veggies really hit the spot! It was the perfect ending to an amazing day. After, we walked around The New Fantasyland for awhile and ended the night with a Dole Whip nightcap :)

What would your celebratory meal be after a big race?
