    Question A few questions about Carthay Circle Dining

    I am having dinner at Carthay Circle for the first time tomorrow (Friday) night. It’s going to be just me and my kid. I have a few questions:

    1) I know on the website it says the cost per person is $36+. Is it a base price like at Ariel’s Grotto where you pay $XYZ amount no matter which entrée you choose? If so, since the website says the price is "more than $36 per person" what is the max price?

    Also, is the kid’s pricing the same as adults. I know Ariel’s Grotto is cheaper for kids but is also a base/set price? I didn't see on the website any clarification that the kid's price was different than the $36+.

    I'm just trying to budget the dinner a bit and include my 15% Premium Pass discount.

    2)Are there any sample menus available? I know the website shows a sample menu from the Carthay lounge but that is all drinks.

    What I found from the website:

    Menu
    The dinner menu includes halibut ceviche, strawberry-lemon roasted organic chicken salad, grilled Jamaican jerked king fish and Colorado rack of lamb.
    Kids can enjoy chicken schnitzel, mini tacos, green apple caramel parfait and sloppy joes with a twist.
    The dessert highlights are toasted lemon pound cake, fried banana split Monte Cristo sundae and the decadent white-chocolate mousse named Peaches in All of Their Glory.

    Are these the only choices? If so, I’m stuck with the salad because I don’t eat seafood or lamb. Even though the salad does sound good.


    I haven’t done in park dining in a while so I’m out of the loop and I’ve never been to Carthay Circle before. I’m very excited to go

    Thanks in advance for help!

    Re: A few questions about Carthay Circle Dining

    Here's a thread that mentions all of the Buena Vista Street dining options. First on the list is the Carthay Circle so scroll down just a bit. http://micechat.com/forums/cars-land...otos-more.html

    Carthay Circle is a restaurant where you order what you want and pay accordingly. You do not pay a base price--you get what you pay for.

    I don't think there is a kid's pricing, nor a kid's menu, but I could be wrong. Depending on your and your kid's appetite, sharing one three-course meal (dessert menus available upon request, I believe) could be adequate. Carthay Circle DOES give 20% off for Premium passes, so you'll be fine there. Just be sure to ask them to revise the check by first presenting your AP before your credit card/cash.

    Have fun! The ambiance is wonderful and if you're big fans of Snow White, be sure to look up into the rotunda in the center of the restaurant.

    U know Clara.. since there is onlysomethings you don't eat..it's just a suggestion, but maybe try adifferent sit down place to eat but have dessert at the CCT, unlessu've already made your ressies. I have seen and heard ( and smelled)the desserts at the CCT..to me just having dessert there is special!This migh also make ur budget more simple, Wine country Tratt is afine place to eat also

    I did already make reservations. I'm looking at the menu now and again thank you for posting the links. It will help alot as some of this food on here sounds FANTASTIC!
    As for my budget, it's just me and my kid and I'm sure there are some items we can share. I would like to keep it under $100 so I hope my 15% PAP discount helps out in that aspect.

    Re: A few questions about Carthay Circle Dining

    I LOL'd at the Angus burger being $22. I'm tempted to get that JUST to see what a $22 burger tastes like!
    I think I'm doing House Biscuits. Everything is better after bread...I love bread.
    And my kid is gonna flip over the Green Apple Caramel Parfait Push Pop...a PUSH POP! I'm curious to see what that is all about!

    Get the Firecracker duck wings appetizer. Oh my goodness, they are the most delicious thing I have ever eaten. I can still close my eyes and taste them. They aren't really HOT, they are just super flavorful and tender and oh man I need to go get some more.

    Also the dining discount is 15%, NOT 20. 20% is only for merchandise locations, not food.

    Yeah I know about the 15% I miss-typed and already changed my original post.
    I don't know about duck though. Is it real duck?

    I think I remember having Duck at a chinese place when I was younger but I don't remember what it tasted like.

    But I think I might do the bread..I LOVE bread and would marry it if I could.
    Well not really....
