Recipe for the ‘Colette’ Champagne Cocktail at Disney Cruise Line’s Remy

Anyone can cook … or in this case, mix!  

For this installment of #DisneyMagicMoments, we’re excited to spotlight one of my favorite places aboard our Disney Cruise Line ships: Remy, the French-inspired fine dining restaurant on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. We’ll take a quick look at some of the exquisite design details that make this location so unique and also share the recipe for one of the restaurant’s signature cocktails.

As you might have guessed, Remy is named after the tiny chef with a passion for cooking in the 2007 Disney•Pixar film “Ratatouille.” Evoking the romance of Paris, the City of Lights, this restaurant offers the most luxurious dining experience aboard our Disney Cruise Line  ships. The elegant dining room is softly lit and designed in a timeless Art Nouveau style with tasteful nods to the film, including artful appearances of Remy. Some of my favorite details are featured in the images below!

But of course, there is the main event – the cuisine. Guests will dine on fine French fare from an ever-changing menu brought to you by the culinary talents of two prestigious chefs,  Scott Hunnel and Arnaud Lallement, who are both internationally recognized for their outstanding creations.  

And these delectable masterpieces are accompanied by an array of fine wines and libations. Which leads me to the “Colette” Cocktail, a beverage inspired by chef Colette from “Ratatouille.” At Remy, this signature cocktail is handcrafted tableside, expertly combining champagne and vodka and garnished with three Cassis pearls and dried pineapple cubes. And now you can impress your friends and family by making it at home! See the recipe details below:

New Bar and Lounge Will Evoke ‘Beauty and the Beast’ at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

bar1

Tie your napkin around your neck, because we are excited to announce that a new “Beauty and the Beast”-inspired lounge is coming to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa this fall. The enchanting lounge will celebrate the magic and romance of the popular Disney live-action movie.

Formerly Mizner’s Lounge and Commander Porter’s, this re-imagined lounge will feature four unique spaces inspired by Belle and the Beast. The signature bar will glow from the light of a magnificent gold chandelier that takes its inspiration from Belle’s flowing ball gown, with subtle nods to the Beast’s magical rose. The formal library showcases classical baroque designs and French furnishings inspired by Belle, with hints of the Beast’s friends. The garden room will be a whimsical space that draws its inspiration from the enchanted forest surrounding Beast’s castle. And an outdoor patio will evoke the romance of Beast’s garden terrace.

It’s the latest new Disney magic coming to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. In February, we announced a new Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique location will open this summer at the beloved and picturesque resort hotel located on the banks of the Seven Seas Lagoon.

With charm and elegance to be found around every turn, this quaint bar and lounge will be the place where you can put our service to the test and share a tale as old as time.
