I’m pleased to have my hubby Brett back as a guest blogger today. He looks back at our most recent memorable meal at Le Cellier, a popular steakhouse at the Canadian pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase.

Take it away, Brett!

Have you ever had a meal that left you speechless? One that you enjoyed so much that it is almost impossible to put into words? If you haven’t yet then I hope it happens for you. A great place to have one of these out-of-this-world experiences is Le Cellier at the Canada pavilion in Epcot.

Dining Reservations at Walt Disney World

Cinderella's Castle at Disney's Magic KingdomEditor’s Note: This post is featured on the Disney Blog Carnival #27. Read more great posts about all things Disney!

Today marks 130 days until we’re at Walt Disney World again. We are all set to spend Dec. 1 through Dec. 3 at a villa in Jambo House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Then, on Dec. 4, we embark on a 4-day cruise of the Caribbean taking in stops at Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s own private island – Castaway Cay.

So, today I wanted to take a look behind how to make a dining reservation at the most magical place on Earth…

At 180 days, you can begin to make dining reservations for your meals at Disney World. The “advanced dining reservation” process can be a bit complicated since you need to count backwards 180 days from when you check in. That marks the day you can make your ADRs. For us, our 180 mark was June 4.

Yeah, I Ate That Series: The Chocolate Moose

Editor’s Note: This post is part of the Disney Blog Carnival. Head over there to see more great Disney-related posts and articles.

Tucked away in the Canada pavilion at Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park is Le Cellier Steakhouse. This primo dining spot is hard to land a reservation at all year.

As you come in from the gardens outside, you’re transported into an old wine cellar decked out in dark woods, stone floors and archways, and minimal lighting.

While the steaks on the menu are aged to perfection (I highly recommend the mushroom filet mignon with mushroom risotto, as well as the Moosehead Beer Cheddar Cheese soup – just be sure to save some of the pretzel breadsticks for dipping), there is one item on the menu that is both fun and tasty.

Chocolate Moose at Le Cellier at EpcotThe Chocolate Moose dessert is chocolate mousse wrapped in toasted chocolate crumbs. Then, it’s decorated with chocolate candies, maple-flavored antlers and a bright red cookie tongue.

Kids and adults both will enjoy this dessert for its creativity and decadence.

If you don’t happen to see it on the menu the day you dine at Le Cellier, don’t be afraid to ask your server if the culinary team might be able to make it.
