The Blue Bayou is now in soft-openings! We had lunch at White Water Snacks before entering the parks but we noticed the Blue Bayou was welcoming guests for soft openings when we walked by so we went in because we had to! We just had dessert. Two of my party had the Creme Brulee trio and I just had a scoop of vanilla ice cream since they were out of the Flying Dutchman Cookie Boat.
The restaurant looks the same, the lobby has a pirate treasure chest overflowing with loot.
The CMs were all very curteous - many of them saying "Welcome to the Blue Bayou" and "Thank you for coming to the Blue Bayou" when we left. The serve each person their dinner roll now after you sit down instead of bringing out a basket of rolls, allowing everybody to get their own.
And the quiet sounds of the Bayou could be heard and the sounds of the banjo could be heard as well.
