    Thanks for your review!

    We've been "regulars" of the BB for many years now.

    We enjoyed the "new" Blue Bayou in June during the first few days of the "soft openings" and enjoyed it very much.

    We are going to the Park next weekend (and again in October) and already have our priority seatings arranged. Can you tell that we like the place??? LOL

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for the review as well!

    We always eat there on our first day at the park. Loved the new BB on this trip in June We were there the 26th and though it was busy, it was still great as ever. The new menu was really good to.

    The Gumbo was so very good.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Thanks for the review! Are the entrees large enough that 2 people could split one entree between them, or is it best for each to have their own? I'll be eating at the BB next week, and your review is very much appreciated!

    Wow, that food looks so good. Thanks for the review. And I know this is one of those "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" type of questions, but how much did this lunch set you back?

    If it's $30 per person for everything, I'd be happy. But if we're talking $50 per person, I'd rather just look for a Wendy's outside the park.

    Yeah, that was the one disappointment with the BB for us upon its return. We miss the salad with the house dressing. I ALWAYS made sure that we got that each trip!

    At least they gave us the recipe card for it a few years back, so we can enjoy it at home anytime we want. But it does lose a little in the translation...Maybe it's the setting.

    Tough to beat the ambience of the Blue Bayou!!!

    GUMBO = +++++

    Yes, it's the same recipe that Cafe Orleans has, but the two table service restaurants keep this recipe to themselves-- French Market and Veranda are still selling the crummy old gumbo, which pales in comparison to the new stuff.

    I LOVE the creme brulee!! And the fact that it comes witha replica of the Dead Man's Chest is AMAZING! I still have my little Dead Man's Chest in a to-go clamshell in my "Disney Drawer"-- I'm going to have to upgrade to a storage box soon, all the stuff I've collected as a CM in a year!

    And the Jambalaya is mouth-wateringly good-- maybe just because I love mahi mahi though. I REALLY want to try the salmon. When I picked up a shift urnning food at the Bayou, every times Chef Janine dished up a Cajun-Spiced Salmon, my mouth would start watering!!

    That would depend on the appetites of the two people of course. If they have smaller appetites, then splitting an entree could be enough. If they have bigger appetites, then it wouldn't. I also believe they charge a split plate fee, so you might want to keep that in mind as well.

    I don't remember. How much you spend also depends on whether you choose to order dessert and any kind of drinks. On the menu link that's included in the review, you can see the prices of the various dishes. I personally think that choosing between Blue Bayou and Wendy's is an odd choice to make since one is nothing like the other. I certainly understand not wanting to eat at Blue Bayou if you don't feel the prices are worth it, but Wendy's wouldn't be the alternative in my book.

    Thanks for the post, cstephens!

    That chimes pretty closely w/ my experience as well.
    (Only slight diffs: I thought the Creme Brulee was *very* good), service
    wasn't *that great*, but we actually went right after it re-opened
    and we attribute that to one waiter (the other was very good).
