Wow, we had an awesome night tonight! It wasn't exactly how we thought we would be celebrating 4th of July, but it was wonderful all the same!
By some stroke of luck, I was able to find reservations for a restaurant there! We were so excited! I booked the reservations, we told all of the kids, and we started getting ourselves ready to go. But right before we left the house, I looked up what time the fireworks were going to start. We had reservations for 8:20pm, and the fireworks were going to start at 9pm! So our only hope was to try to get in to dinner early, or we would never make it out in time to see the fireworks.
We were able to get in to dinner almost 15 minutes early, but we weren't sure if that would be enough. Even though we were eating at a buffet, so we didn't need to wait to be served our food, my little sisters needed their food specially cooked for them because of their allergies. This meant that it took quite a while for them to be able to eat.
As it turned out, we ended up missing the fireworks. We just couldn't get out of dinner in time. But guess what? We had an absolutely amazing time anyway! Dinner was fantastic, but what really made the night great was the Cast Members who helped us. Our server, who basically just had to get us drinks, napkins, and ketchup, was so friendly! He made sure to stop by our table to check in with us, tell us where to find things at the buffet line, and just talk to us. But the absolute star of the evening was the chef who made the food for my little sisters. This chef came out and talked to my mom to get all of the information he needed on their allergies. Then he made my sisters a beautiful meal. Not only was everything dairy-free for them, but it was presented in a stunning way! We were all in awe, especially my sisters. And the he even made them a beautiful dessert as well, which absolutely thrilled them! We ended up taking pictures of him with the girls, and a picture of our server with the girls, and it was just an awesome evening all around!
