First some photos of the Regatta Club Lounge…
As you can see from the photos, the lounge was deserted during my first visit. Here are pics of the Afternoon snacks that were being offered that day (which was the one and only time that I was there during the Afternoon Snack hours):
Gummy candy (I think maybe they were worms???), Trail mix, and White Chocolate-covered Pretzels (none of which I tried).
Potato chips & Dip (again, didn’t try these)
But I couldn’t resist having one of these…
Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Then it was off to Epcot for my first DISmeet, but I was back in time to check out the Evening offerings in the lounge that night. The first of my three nights, the food seemed to have an Asian theme. The two hot appetizers were potstickers and wontons (filled with what???…for the life of me I can’t remember), both of which were good. I also had some of the veggies and dip that seemed to be standard fare each night.
Sadly I dropped the ball regarding taking photos of all the Evening Offerings, remembering only to take a picture of my own plate each of my three nights at the lounge. However, my saving grace could possibly be my dining companions. On the first evening I asked one of the CL staff if I could invite a guest (or two) to join me in the lounge each night for pre-dinner appetizers since I was staying there by myself. Having gotten the okay, I was able to share my good fortune with three other members of our group…Rachel, Beth, and Vicki.
Moving on now to the Breakfast Offerings, which my first morning consisted of…
Croissants and assorted bagels
Muffins and Danish
Three kinds of Melon
And my choice on this first morning…
Pap and Oatmeal, along with these toppings…
Craisins, Raisins, Brown Sugar, and I thinks slivered Almonds???
Since I was meeting some ladies for breakfast that morning, I had only coffee and a small bowl of the oatmeal topped with raisins and brown sugar…
This was delicious! It had been a few years since I had had oatmeal and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed it. Consequently, when I returned home I picked up some from the grocery store and have had it for breakfast most mornings since then. Although it’s not quite as good as the oatmeal I had while relaxing in my room at the Yacht Club that morning, it’s still pretty darn tasty.
And while we are talking breakfast, the offerings on the second morning seemed to be pretty much the same as the first so I didn’t take any more photos. I again had breakfast plans, but this time we were having a buffet-style breakfast. With this in mind, I limited myself to just a bit of melon that morning.
On my third and final morning, I spent all my spare time in the room packing for my move to the Boardwalk so didn’t have the chance to visit the lounge before leaving for another DISmeet breakfast. I have a feeling though that the Breakfast offerings that morning were much like the previous two mornings.
That just leaves my limited report on the food offered in the lounge on the second and third nights of my stay. Night 2 seemed to follow a Greek theme with appetizers of Spanakopita and a Greek salad with olives, artichokes and feta cheese.
Unfortunately I can’t recall what the other hot hors d’oeuvre is that is on my plate (the one that looks like an egg roll). There were different cheeses offered each night, along with crackers. On this night it was a very good blue cheese and I believe a cheddar. The second night was definitely my favorite one, as I remember enjoying and therefore finishing every single bite from my full plate.
On the third night I was meeting the group for an early dinner so I only sampled a few things…
Bacon-wrapped scallops and Brie with crackers
Sorry that my photo is slightly blurry and not very visually appealing. It definitely does not do these foods justice, as both were quite good. The second hot hors d’oeurvre offered this night was chicken skewers, which didn’t look particularly appetizing to me. Therefore, I didn’t try them so can’t comment as to whether they tasted better than they looked.
Sadly (perhaps), I was never back to my room in time to sample the Desserts & Cordials that were offered in the evening. I say perhaps, because as you will soon see I was in no way deprived of wonderful desserts on any of these evenings.
