I tried to get some shots (I wonder if it would be as cool or cooler for lunch when it's not so dark?). The wait was pretty long but eventually I get seated at the chef's counter and greeted by my awesome Cast Member waiter, Ron.
Bread and butter appear almost immediately as I perused the menu. The bread and butter alone was amazing. My mouth is watering right now as I think about it. I also had the perfect view of the open kitchen and enjoyed watching the bustle of the cooks and waiters. Each dish they put out looked better than the last - so of course I snagged some pics.
Wishes was starting and Ron suggested I watch out on the roof. When I hesitated about leaving my seat (and thus prolonging my stay at the counter - I know waiters like a lot of turnover for tips), he promised me it was okay. I grabbed my water (SO THIRSTY!) and went outside.
I swear food pics are below. Keep scrolling!
It was chilly for sure, but who cares! I was on the freakin' roof of the Contemporary watching Wishes! Of course I called my parents to rub it in a little lol. (Brace yourself for a ton of Wishes pics - I promise food pics are coming as soon as you scroll down!)
Food pictures are coming I PROMISE!
The view was weird, being off to the side and a bit in farther away than I would have liked, but again, the whole experience was so cool I didn't care.
After the finale, I headed back to my seat where I ordered a sashimi appetizer and two appetizers instead of an entree (my own ad hoc tasting menu). Are you ready for these pics because, buckle up, this meal was incredible:
WHAM! Goat Cheese Ravioli. EAT THIS. EAT THIS ASAP. You will not regret it. One huge ravioli filled with flavorful cheese in a light broth-like tomato sauce.
Tragically, no room for dessert - all the more reason to make another ADR in the future!
