Just before Christmas my husband and I decided to do the monorail circuit on the Seven Seas Lagoon and visit the three resorts on it and see their Christmas decorations. Disney always does it up really beautifully.
We made a reservation for The Wave at the Contemporary resort for 7:40 pm. We arrived very early and decided to board the monorail and go to the Polynesian resort to see the decorations. You can actually board the monorail inside of the Contemporary resort which I still think is pretty cool. The seven seas lagoon monorail circuit has stops at the Contemporary Resort, The Ticketing and Transportation area, the Polynesian Resort and The Grand Floridian Hotel and Resort. The monorail has availability to EPCOT at the ticketing and transportation center where you can board a monorail for EPCOT.
We arrived at the Polynesian resort and it was lovely. Christmas trees among the lush Polynesian gardens which inhabit the hotel. WE had our picture taken with Surfer Minnie and Mickey So cute. After we went out to the lagoon beach, it was a bit chilly, and they were showing Lilo and Stitch on a blow up screen out on the beach. After we took the monorail all the way back around to The Contemporary Hotel where we got off and headed to dinner at The Wave.
We got a lovely table for two in the first third of the restaurant and were given a food menu, a drink menu and a wine list. My husband chose some type of local draft Beer and I chose a Wavesicle. (4 Orange Vodka, Cointreau, and Nonfat Yogurt with a splash of Orange Juice) Which was delicious.
With his dinner my husband has Cobb salad and for his entree he had the Gremolata-crusted Ashley Farms naturally Raised Chicken Breast. I had the dry rubbed Flat Iron Steak with Potato leek Gratin and winter veggies. Both were delicious. I recommend my steak for sure.
The service was good although we had two servers because one was being trained. I thought the one being trained was better than the one doing the training. The trainer had some snarky stuff to say to us regarding his trainee. I didn’t like that but let it go.
The Wave is a moderately priced Disney restaurant (compare to The newly renovated California grille where I have eaten twice and hope to eat at again one day,) with entrees from $15 to $29.95 for each adult. Drinks are Disney expensive.
The Wave Serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week. I highly recommend The Wave as a great place to eat.
