Disney fans are collectively losing their minds (and breaking open their piggy banks) today over news that the long-rumored high-end 21 Royal restaurant at Disneyland is now very, very real.
Disney Parks fan site WDW News Today is reporting that the ultra luxe 21 Royal is accepting reservations as of yesterday, with the premier experience costing a whopping $15,000. Don’t worry, that does include park admission, valet, tax, and tip.
So what do you get for your $15,000? A private dinner for twelve guests only, tucked into an amazingly opulent room at 21 Royal Street, which apparently was part Walt Disney’s apartment plans above New Orleans Square. The guided seven-course menu is created individually for each group by chef de cuisine Justin Monson, and includes wines from sommelier Matt Ellingson, as well as an opening cocktail reception.
While there, you’ll also get a winding history lesson on some of the finer points of not only the park, but of Disney the man. And when all is said and done, you’ll be able to retreat to a private balcony overlooking the park for coffee and petit fours.
The private dining experience is only available for those willing to pony up a cool $1,250 a head (again, that’s all-in though), but given the volume that a place like Disneyland does, there are sure to be more than a few willing participants. Want to throw down the cash yourself? 21 Royal is taking reservations now.
