Walt Disney World puts 'The Grey Stuff' on the menu at Be Our Guest
Now you don't have to beg to get The "Grey Stuff" at Walt Disney World's Be Our Guest
Theme Park Foodie reported this morning that the Beauty and the Beast-inspired dessert now appears on the restaurant's dinner menu. The chocolate mousse-like dessert is now served in a larger portion and atop a chocolate pastry, for $4.29, according to the report.
To confirm, The "Grey Stuff" now appears on the online menu for Be Our Guest, listed on the Walt Disney World Resort website. No details are provided, but the dessert is listed as $3.99 there.
Until now, the dessert was available only at a server's discretion, inspiring Disney visitors to claim all sorts of birthdays, anniversaries or other special events to get their forks into the treat billed as "delicious" in the Academy Award-nominated song that provided the restaurant's name. Perhaps Disney does listen, after all. So who's ordering The "Grey Stuff" the next time you're there?
Yes. It's a Grey Stuff cupcake. Available at lunch also.
We just ate there in late August. Luckily we were celebrating a birthday and anniversary so the waitress brought some out for us. I don't think she would have had we not been wearing our buttons. Knowing it was a special treat for special occasion only made that much better. And it was absolutely delicious! They should keep the grey stuff as a special item and not make it a regular menu item.
The picture on the Theme Park Foodie website doesn't look like a cupcake to me. But the again, what's sold as "cupcakes" today exist in a completely different universe than the cupcakes I knew as a kid. So there's that.
What's really amusing to me is that in the film, Maurice the candlabra is talking about duck liver pate when he's singing about the "grey stuff".
Now all we need is for them to add Soup du jour, Hot hors d'oeuvres, Beef ragout, veal (cut out lyric that didn't make it to the final version of the song), Cheese soufflé, and Pie and pudding "en flambe" then we got all the food items mentioned in the song covered. The nice thing about this restaurant is the menu is pretty flexible by adding/subtracting new meals periodically based on guest demand. I just wish they would improve on the desert menu cause it's pretty weak at the moment with only cupcakes and cream puffs to offer.
You know what? A commenter above noted that there are lots of food items mentioned in that Be Our Guest song.
just got back home and catching up . we (my husband and I) were at Be Our Guest on sunday evening and found the grey stuff on the menu. It was served on a base very similar to a brownie, rectangular with 3 swirls of grey stuff. He does agree that it was delicious!
