This week our apprentices traveled to Paris, France to create character dining experiences for the Walt Disney Studios Park. Before voting check their ideas out on the discussion board first!

Some really great ideas! I wish more of you had remembered the vegetarians, though. Every Disney restaurant has at least one vegetarian entree on the menu. There were a couple of entries here that I loved, but weren't even in the running for my vote because of no veggie option. Special thanks to Dan, Colin, and Eric, for not neglecting the vegetarians :)!

KJ, I did include a "Salads" section in my menu for Dumbo's Big Top Cafe, where I mentioned the special "Dumbo's Lunch" of fresh fruits and vegetables. My menu was not a detailed, complete menu, but I didn't forget vegetarians.

Thanks, James- I did like how you described that salad section!

Not to be big headed or anything, but I'm surprised I'm not higher up :(

Brenden, sign up started in May but got full. You might have a chance next year.

Dominick, I especially liked your breakfast choices. Sorry everyone, I didn't mean to imply that the three people I mentioned were the only ones with any veg options on their menus- they were just the ones that stood out to me as having actual, planned, good-sounding (to me) entrees. Spaghetti and/or pizza were on a few menus- usually good options for a vegetarian when there's nothing else, but that's different than offering a fully-planned entree. (Believe me, I'm thrilled when I see spaghetti or pizza at some places- lots of restuarants don't even offer anything without meat). I also realize that the focus of this challenge was not the actual menu items. I think you ALL did a fantastic job with this challenge, and it was one of my favorites to read through so far!
