Ariel's Grotto Review~ Started off with the Antipasta Tower(Pics 3, 4, and 7) The salad was better than most that I've had at the resort, veggies were hit or miss but the jello and string cheese was a nice starter. I had the Herb-crusted Chicken Breast (Pic 2). Nicely seasoned and I'm not usually a fan of mashed potatoes I enjoyed these. Pic 1 is the Mafalde Pasta and the bite I had of it had a nice kick to it. Dessert platter had a nice variety of sweets and fruits. We kept the white chocolate and are going to freeze it and keep it :)

Very informative.Interesting picture of jello and cheese - Dizkid  457.8 #474 7:08PM
Yeah, I still don't understand the jello and cheese combo. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 1:22PM

Oh, string cheese. Should have read her description. Cheese and fruit = yum! - Alicewhoareyou  2559.3 #53 4:14PM
How many princesses were there? I'm taking my daughter for lunch in April. Thank u for posting this!! πŸ˜ƒ - MariaR  183.9 #2199 8:55PM
You see Ariel when you go in and they take a photo of you with her (they later come by with it printed out and try to sell it to you). Then a guy came out and sang a minstrel version of "it's the time of our lives, in everything you do- celebrate you." He'll then announce each princesses entrance. We saw Aurora, Snow, Belle, and Cinderella. They walk to each table and will chat with you for a little bit :) - MayBie  1885.6 #90 9:02PM
Also loved that the princesses visit your table :) Got two signatures I needed for my book - MayBie  1885.6 #90 7:04PM

I really liked the antipasta trio platter cuz mads goes to town on all the string cheese and jello and I get that great salad and all the good cheese and meats - madsdad  1868.2 #92 7:27PM
The mozzarella and salami was so good! I only nibbled on the carrots but my boyfriend liked the peppers and olives. He did not care for the pickles though - MayBie  1885.6 #90 7:29PM
I think they are cornichons, taste a lot different than normal pickles, i like normal ones too. did you like the dressing on the salad? It's one of my favs! - madsdad  1868.2 #92 7:40PM
yes! I wish french market would use the same dressing instead of just giving out packets - MayBie  1885.6 #90 7:49PM
