Yacht Club Galley
Located at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

Not one but two cast members were there at the restaurants entrance to both greet us and confirm our party size. With only a momentary delay we were escorted into the rather large dining room that was located just off the main lobby area. I noticed that there were only four other guests seated, so with our party of two the total lunch crowd was an even half dozen.

Our sever Eduardo wasted no time in introducing himself and taking our drink order. As he disappeared to retrieve our drinks I took a moment to rummage through the two column single page lunch menu. It was neatly broken up into four sections that included; Starters, Salads, Sandwiches and Entrees and a modest three item Dessert section. In the Sandwiches and Entrée section the sandwiches out weighed the entrees about eight to one. The one lone entrée was the Galley Fish and Chips. After reading its unconvincing description I quickly turned my attention to the remaining sandwich items. Mingled in with the requisite burger and grilled chicken offerings were some rather interesting choices. The most intriguing among these were the Portobello Mushroom Grinder, and the Crab and Shrimp Cake Sandwich. I could not remember the last time I had enjoyed a good club sandwich, so I focused in on the Yacht Club Sandwich. A rule of thumb with me is that when a restaurant is willing to name a sandwich after itself it should be willing to make the necessary investment to ensure its success. Now armed with a nostalgic hankering and conviction that the chef would do the right thing my mind was made up.

When it came time to order I cast my vote for the Yacht Club Sandwich, but spared Eduardo the strategy that when into the selection process. My lunch companion after a brief debate ordered the Crab and Shrimp Cake Sandwich. As we waited for our lunch to be served I took the time to look around the restaurant. The atmosphere was open and airy but offered little in the way of a view. This seemed to me to be either an oversight or a mistake taking into consideration that the well manicured grounds of this beautiful Walt Disney World Resort were just 20 feet away.

When our lunch was served I wasted little time before I started to enjoy my multi layered delight. The combination of Turkey, Ham Applewood Smoked Bacon and Cheddar Cheese with Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise that was all resting on whole wheat bread was extremely tasty, fresh, and enjoyable. The red bliss potato salad rounded out the sandwich platter in a satisfying way.

Out of the corner of my eye I could tell that The Crab and Shrimp Cake was not being devoured with the same zeal as my Club Sandwich. My lunch companion after only a few bites called for our waiter’s attention. With a brief apology and explanation he sent his sandwich back. The reason for this drastic measure being that this premium sandwich, which was the most expensive on the menu, was heavily breaded with only a modest amount of Crab and Shrimp noticeable. Eduardo without hesitation retreated to the kitchen to both return a sandwich and order another, but this time it would be The Galley Ruben.

If my memory serves me correctly after delivering the newly ordered Reuben Eduardo made no less than two trips to our table to ensure that the Reuben was satisfactory. For the record the Reuben was indeed satisfactory and not at all embarrassed to show off its lean Corned Beef, Sauerkraut and Swiss cheese, which was literally spilling over the Marble Rye.

I always seem to enjoy these mid-day meal breaks in the restaurants located at the Walt Disney Resort Hotels. The price is often less that a full service restaurant in the theme parks and the pace is always leisurely.
