Craig and Ryno tried two signature cocktails unique to 1900 Park Fare!

"Dinner Is Where the Magic Is At" 1900 Park Fare Review 1900 Park Fare Cocktail

Ryno chose the Strawberry Rose Spritz for $16. Made with Le Fete du Rose, Rockey’s Botanical Liqeur, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and strawberry, this was a refreshing cocktail. Craig chose the Passion Fruit Daiquiri also for $16. This is a take on the classic daiquiri made with Diplomatico Planas Extra Anejo Blanco Rum, Aperol Liqueur, passion fruit, vanilla, and lime. Both Craig and Ryno felt this was the winner of the two and was a well-balanced drink!

And for the moment you’ve all been waiting for… the characters! There are new Disney friends joining 1900 Park Fare, including Tiana in her adventurer attire, soon to be featured in Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, Mirabel from Encanto, Cinderella, and Aladdin in his Prince Ali outfit. We should note that these characters were present during the team’s experience, but recently, Snow White appeared in Cinderella’s place. Characters are always subject to change.

Time for dinner ratings! Ryno gave the ambiance a 7, food presentation/ preparation an 8, quality of taste an 8, service a 10, cost an 8, and character interaction a 10 for a total of 4.25 out of 5.

Craig gave the ambiance an 8, food presentation/ preparation an 8, quality of taste a 9, service a 10, cost an 8, and character interaction a 9 for a total of 4.3 out of 5.

Both Craig and Ryno felt the artwork and the updated restaurant were nice additions and the pricing was comparable to other character meals at Walt Disney World. The buffet offered great variety and memorable dishes. The character interactions and service were superior during dinner service but this was likely attributed to opening day kinks.
