Well after spending a great weekend at the park and meeting some great people from MiceChat, are time was limited until we had to return to the heat. Monday was going to be a half day and we would head out right after noon. So around 11 we headed over to check out Jedi Academy. Upon leaving we notice that the TomorrowLanding was now open.
Mostly hats and Jedi stuff, but I'm sure that will change with Nemo.
My girls were getting hungry, so we were going to quickly grab them something over at Redd's. It was about 11:30 and not busy yet. When we walked in, we were greeted by a CM that asked us if we had heard of the "Year of a Million Dreams?" She told us that we had been selected to receive sit down service at Redd's. We were taken to table that had a table cloth and reserved sign and were handed menus. The menu was still the same, just instead of being buffeteria style, we were served as though it was an actual restauraunt. Drink orders taken and fulfilled, then meal orders taken and finally asked if we wanted dessert. (Sorry, the pictures of the table and food is on my wife's camers. I'll post later.)
So, after this dream was to have a sit-down experience in what was other than that a fast grab place. Interesting concept, not sure how well it is going to go over with people. I was happy, because I would be able to share with everyone the experience and get to see first hand one of the dreams. However, if I was there under my original idea of grabbing the kids something quick and moving on, I would have probably felt pressure to order things that I didn't want. Oh and for those of you wanting to know, yes, we still had to pay for our meal.
There was a nice surprise though at the end. Right before we were presented our bill, our server brought us out some goodies. First we were presented with a copy of the menu that had been signed by all the CM's that were working at Redd's.
Next we were given buttons to wear.
My guess was the reason for us to wear the pins was so that we became marked and other dream givers would know to shy clear of us. If we had won ears or the fast passes, we would already be marked. And the final gift were these pins.
I'm not into the pin trading scene, so I'm not sure if these are unique or a pin that is (or will be) available.
So, it was an interesting experience. Definately something different.
