Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White

Today was opening day of Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White. @Chelle, an amazing Magic Maker with Off to Neverland Travel, and I were excited for this new dining experience! A special thank you to her for getting the booking on opening day. :dopey: As you walk into Artist Point you are immersed into the same forest where Snow White ran into the Huntsman. The trees are trimmed with multi-color lights that dance throughout your experience.

We started off with a nice adult cocktail. I chose the The Smoking Mirror and @Chelle got A Brew of Peaches.

The menu is pre-fixed which means your appetizer and dessert are all brought out to you (no selection needed). You do get to choose your entree. I will rate the items for the appetizer and dessert according to which one I liked best to least favorite (but still yummy!).

Appetizers:

  • Hunter’s Pie (2)
  • Wicked Shrimp Cocktail (1)
  • Winter Squash Bisque (3)

Desserts:

  • Fairy Tale Gooseberry Pie (2)
  • “Poison” Apple (3)
  • Miner’s Treasures (1)
  • The Hunter’s Gift to the Queen (4)

The entree I selected was the Magic Mirror Slow-braised Veal Shank. @Chelle got the Bashful’s Butter-poached Snapper. Both of these dishes were delicious!

There are three magical moments during your dining experience: Snow White, Dopey :dopey: & Grumpy and The Evil Queen. They all come to your table except for the Evil Queen. She summons you to meet her at the conclusion of your meal.

Overall
The experience is something I think you should try… without the kids. I could not imagine my three kids enjoying this (even with characters). The food is geared more towards adults than children (although they do have a kid’s menu). Bottom line, if you find yourself looking for dining reservations and this one pops up, take it (and give the kids an apple :apple: and let them nap in the resort room). KIDDING!

    I will be in the minority here but this breaks my heart :( my husband and I ate at Artist Point on our honeymoon and returned for our 2nd and 4th wedding anniversaries. We wanted somewhere more quiet and upscale for the occasion and Artist Point never disappointed. Beautiful resort, classy atmosphere and incredible food, so I’m really sad to lose it. That being said, this does look well done for those who are interested in character dining, and I understand why Disney felt they needed to change things up. I do find it interesting Steve that you thought it was more geared toward adults than children, I would figure all character dining is aimed at children so thanks for the tip!
