Remember that “personal dessert platter” that seemed very vague? Disney has announced exactly what it will include!
The new platter will be served on a rose-embossed plate, and the whole thing is truly a work of art. On the platter, which will be available on the new menu being released in July, you’ll find a raspberry macaron with a lemon filling and tipped with fresh raspberries and a whole maraschino cherry dipped in dark chocolate and topped with hazelnut chips.
At the center of the platter, there will be a very cute white chocolate cup designed to look like Chip, the loveable teacup from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast movie. The cup will be edible, and even better: it’s filled with Grey Stuff, which is a nod to the line in Lumiere’s performance, “Try the grey stuff. It’s delicious! Don’t believe us? Ask the dishes!”
If you’ve never had the Grey Stuff, know that it tastes a lot better than it sounds. It’s actually a cookies and cream panna cotta made with cookies, vanilla, chocolate, and whipped cream. Obviously, mixing chocolate and vanilla together would give you a grey color, and that’s how Disney achieved the less than beautiful color on a very delicious dessert.
Like I said, the platter will be released late this summer as part of a new three-course prix fixe (fixed price) menu, which is designed to give the restaurant a more luxurious feel and make diners feel like royalty. The menu will be somewhat limited, but you’ll still have a choice of appetizer and entrée. Everyone will get the dessert platter. This is a great deal if you’re on the Dining Plan, but maybe not so much if you’re paying cash.
