Faline, not sure this will help you or not. Warning it is long.
In 99 we planned a long trip (17 days) and went all out. I arranged for an Illuminations Cruise & MK Fireworks Cruise, both were to include champagne & food. Was told to contact food services upon arrive for food choices. At that time you could have a regular cruise, a party cruise, snack cruise or champagne cruise. I understand it is done differently now.
When we arrived at the Contemporary Tower Club I checked with concierge as to who I was to call. Illuminations boat would be from Yacht Club & MK Fireworks boat would be from the Poly. The CM checked on my reservations (PS #'s) and they weren't there!
I started to cry as everything had been planned ahead of time one was for my daughter's birthday the other for our anniversary.
Concierge pulled some serious strings and arranged everything for us at no charge! [img]graemlins/mickey.gif[/img] They asked what I would like for snacks. I mentioned perhaps some fruit & cheese, mini sandwiches and maybe a few desserts. Champagne for us, and a few sodas for the kids.
The Poly was up first . . .got to the boat in plenty of time and they couldn't find the food. [img]graemlins/shakehead.gif[/img] The marina manager took off to find it. After 1/2 hour a cart showed up with a monsterous amount of food. [img]graemlins/blush.gif[/img] Once loaded on the boat the marina manager showed up with another serious amount of food! [img]graemlins/doubleeek.gif[/img] He said put it on the boat and enjoy. There were two huge platters of assorted sliced fruits, assorted cheeses, & crackers. Mini hot appetizers with dips. Huge tray with all sorts of mini desert pastries, a platter of cookies and another tray with a cake. About a case of assorted sodas & juices and two bottles of champagne.
There was no way five of us could eat that much. They told us to take it all back to the resort with us . . .we took a small tray of assorted goodies and told the boat drivers to enjoy the rest!
As for the Yacht Club food it was incredible! A beautiful cheese platter (12 different varieties) with assorted crackers, a huge platter of sliced fresh fruit, a huge platter of veggies w/ dip, olives, pickles, etc. Platter with 6 different types of tini sandwiches (crust cut off
). For dessert they took a huge mirror and swirled a decoration out of melted chocolate prior to displaying desserts. There were all sorts of mini desserts and chocolate covered strawberries. Soda, juice, champagne was also served complete with crystal. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
