21 Royal, A New Private Dining Experience At Disneyland

getimage-gif

Imagine hosting an extraordinary dinner party in the heart of Disneyland Park, in a private residence once envisioned by Walt and Lillian Disney as a secluded family retreat and a luxurious oasis in which to host celebrities and dignitaries.

Some five decades later, the Disneys’ vision has come to fruition. Their original designs for this one-of-a-kind space have been faithfully and painstakingly recreated—only this time as the site of an unforgettable epicurean experience. Welcome to 21 Royal.

On the evening of your 21 Royal experience, your guests will arrive at the majestic Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, where they will be greeted by the hotel’s valets. Once your entire party has assembled, they will be given a VIP escort to the site of the evening’s festivities.

Legendary Disney service is on display from the moment your guests are welcomed by the 21 Royal staff. First, signature cocktails are served by professional butlers in the salon, then everyone is invited out to the patio for a casual reception. You and your guests will also have time to explore the different rooms—and discover some of their more magical features.

Then it’s time for dinner. You and your guests take your seats around a lavish table covered in white linens, fresh flowers and set with gold-plated dinnerware and fine crystal. This is when the evening’s adventure really begins—as a fascinating tale unfolds told through fine food and drink.

In true Disney fashion, you can end your evening with a grand finale—dessert on the private balcony, where you and your guests are treated to a spectacular view of the Rivers of America, and on certain nights, prime viewing of the park’s nighttime entertainment.

Using your chosen theme for the evening as inspiration, the team thoughtfully prepares a menu that weaves together a tapestry of imaginative dishes that combine to tell a tale that is uniquely yours. The result is Disney storytelling at its delicious best.

To obtain the freshest and finest ingredients available, the chefs work directly with premier suppliers—both local and international—including farmers, fishermen and other sustainable sources.

By combining these ingredients with skillful techniques and time-honored traditions, then matching them with the perfect pairings from the extensive 21 Royal wine collection, your culinary team creates a symphony of innovative dishes that are dazzling in both flavor and appearance.

The cost for this royal experience with a minimum party of 12 is $15,000 including tax, gratuity, valet and park admission.

Jayson Weidel To Hide Original Disney Themed Artwork At Disneyland For Park Attendees To Find

Weidel-Lilo-Stitch-72

Jayson Weidel has a huge surprise in store for anyone attending Disneyland in Anaheim, California this weekend (Either Friday May 2, 2014 or Saturday May 3, 2014). The popular artist is going to hide Disney themed original art in specially marked envelopes throughout the park and tweet clues about their whereabouts.

1506997_10203786963661283_4478229210383755755_n

Jayson has created a bunch of awesome sketches such as Lilo and Stitch, Olaf, Donald Duck, Winnie The Pooh, Goofy and more for the seekers to find. Weidel will take a photo of the general area or landmark and provide a hint as to where the sketch is located.

All of these illustrations are on high end watercolor paper. The images measure roughly 8” x 6” and are drawn in non-photo blue and mechanical pencil. The sketches are all signed and stamped along with instructions on how to play the game (for those who find them with out knowing and want to find more).

Interested people online or in the park can follow Jayson on twitter at planet_pulp or follow the hashtags #Disneyland, #Disney and #HiddenMickey.

Once a drawing is located Jayson simply requests that the lucky recipient tweet him back with a reply as to what drawing they located and to take a photo with them and the drawing so that Weidel can re-tweet the image.

I love the idea of this and hope that the experiment is a huge success! Who doesn’t like searching for buried treasure especially when the booty is beautiful original art. Hats off (Mouse Ears) to Jayson for this clever, fun and innovative experience!
