My husband and I chose the deluxe dining package for our 1st ever Disney vacation so we could experience the Signature restaurants and for our 1st night at the resort we dined at the Yachtsman. The food was very good, 1 of the top 5 best steaks we've ever had but the service was not to Disney standards.
We had a 7:40 reservation on a Monday during 1 of the slowest weeks of the year. When we arrived a few minutes early we were told that our table wasn't quite ready and it would be about 10 minutes, no problem. An hour later we were finally seated in a 3/4 empty dining room! We then waited another 5-10 minutes for our waiter to arrive at the table and bring water. We presented him with our card with our dining plan on it and explained that this was our 1st night and our 1st stay at Disney. He didn't explain anything about our dining plan at all. I'll take responsibility that I didn't read the materials well and we didn't know our plan included an appetizer but the waiter never informed us either so we passed on some things we would have loved to try since we didn't want to spend the additional money. Also, for the remainder of the week, every server at every restaurant went over our plan with us and what it included at his/her particular restaurant.
Although our steak was good there is more to a Signature dining experience than just the food. With so many other high caliber restaurants available on the property next time we'll skip the Yachtsman and go elsewhere.
