As our meals came, the darkness had finally fallen over Disney World, so we talked about how wonderful our food was and how stunning the view became as Disney World began to come alive with lights. My husband ordered a Florida black grouper with cashew chutney and bok choy over basmati rice for his main course. We all loved steak, therefore we each decided on oak-grilled filet of beef served with perfectly cooked fluffy potatoes and asparagus.

The filet was nearly as bright a highlight in the evening as the fireworks, which began bursting over Cinderella Castle halfway through supper. The most difficult part? Deciding whether we should view the fireworks via the window from our table or leave our delicious meal to watch it outside on the designated platforms. We snuck out for the very end of the show after taking a few more bites of perfectly cooked steak.
