Just back from a Christmas trip to Beach Club Vilas and had a wonderful trip. The highlight was our Keys to the Kingdom Tour with the best guide, Claire.
The lowlight? Raglan Road… I have been very curious about RR for awhile and was happy to get an ADR for 10 people at the last minute during Christmas week. Should have wondered why :laugh: The service at RR was very good. Despite poor food, the server was very attentive. The bill was well over $200, after the 20% TiW discount. Although TiW automatically adds on an 18% tip, I added onto that since we usually tip 20 % or more for great service.
We were four adults, three teens, and three kids under 9. At WDW, I have never experienced a meal where almost everyone disliked their food. Being the optimist, I enjoyed my goat cheese salad. I think the best choice was the scallop forest (an appetizer served on forks help upright, each skewering a scallop) The chicken and risotto dish was actually inedible and was sent back. When I say inedible, I’m not kidding :blow:
During the meal, noone really said anything about their food, either positive or negative. I guess they were too embarassed to complain (other than my husband’s chicken and risotto which was sent back). Later on, a few people in our party commented about their meal. It turned out that noone like their food! I was pretty bummed out, since dinner was my treat.
When we got back to our villa, I made about 12 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for everyone to snack on- I figure I could have saved about $300if I had thought about doing that before hand :pinch:
Again, our WDW vacation was excellent, and RR didn’t put a damper on it at all. By the way, the beer was good
