Delicious Disney, A Chef Series Returning in 2017

Disney has been continuing to offer more unique dining experiences to its guests year after year (I for one am not complaining) and has announced that the “Delicious Disney, A Chef Series” is returning to Walt Disney world again in 2017.

Basically this is an opportunity for guests to be able to enjoy a meal prepared personally for them by one of the many award-winning chefs from the Walt Disney World Resort.  All meals will be uniquely inspired with food and wine pairings created to showcase their personal talents.  The theme of this year’s “Delicious Disney, A Chef Series” will be: “Storytelling with Food.”

Not only will this be any foodie’s dream as these meals are sure to amaze, but guests will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with the individual chefs who prepare everything.  Dinners will be on the intimate side with a limit of approximately 60 guests per location.  There will be 9 dinners total with some of the locations including: Cinderella’s Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom, Markham’s at Golden Oak, Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom and backstage at the Walt Disney World Tree Farm.  The schedule is here below:
