At $15,000 for the evening, a dinner party at Disneyland’s new 21 Royal is one of its most exclusive affairs. Located inside Walt Disney’s old apartment at 21 Royal Street in New Orleans Square, this new fine dining experience promises an elegant experience you won’t find anywhere else.
From the The Robb Report…
Storytelling remains the theme in the just-completed dining room, where executive chef Andrew Sutton and chef de cuisine Justin Monson present what they call “epicurean theater”: fine cuisine with an exciting dash of showmanship. Sutton, the culinary director for signature restaurants at the Disneyland Resort, aims at 21 Royal to give the kind of dinner party Walt and Lillian would—but in the present day, and with a culinary style that ranges wide while staying rooted in California.
The seven-course menu is fully tailored for every group, whether your wish is for the chefs to delight you with untrammeled inventiveness or to design an entire meal from the starting point of sourcing a fondly remembered wine from a special occasion in your past. No matter what shape your menu takes, the chefs and Ellingson introduce each course and pairing with stories about their inspiration that draw you into their lives and help build the experience of communal connection that defines the most memorable shared meals.
As the evening draws to a close, you adjourn with coffee and desserts in the dining room or on the spacious private balcony for a view of the charm and lights of the park at night; if the skies are clear, you might enjoy the fireworks spectacular from your perch.
The seven course meal is themed to your liking and serves up to 12 people, which breaks the cost down to a mere $1,250 per person. Yes, it’s insanely steep. Some would say it’s just insane. But let’s be honest here, if you’re Disney diehard and had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dine in the Dream Suite, you’d totally do it.
You know you would.
