Verdict? Recommended

Non-Disney-nerd friends of ours are often surprised that you can get fine dining in a theme park. Common refrain: “It’s just burgers and fries and churros, right?”

Um … no. Not at all.

Disney’s been really, really good about putting a wide variety of food into the parks. Yes, you can get typical theme park food if you want it. No problem there. But if you’ve got a few extra dollars in your pocket, and are looking for quality, it’s available.

For instance: the Unagi Glazed Skuna Bay Salmon at the Carthay Circle Restaurant.

This is a perfectly cooked, exceptionally fresh, and delicious piece of fish. It’s sitting atop a ring of glaze, accompanied by a few vegetables and some fat pieces of bacon. It’s one of those dishes where you cut a piece, put it in your mouth, and feel the fish almost melt on the tongue. It made me incredibly happy.

It’s also $39. (That’s a lot of burgers and fries and churros.)

This is classic, fresh, fine dining, done Disney style. If you want this (and can afford it), you’ll love it.
