Remy Tweaks the Recipe for Champagne Bunch (Lunch) [UPDATED]

Remy quietly began offering a champagne lunch this past May during sea days on the Disney Fantasy for an amazingly low price of $50 per person (guests 18 and older). I’m sure you are scratching your head after reading low price of $50, but the champagne alone would run more than $50. As we all know, all good things eventually come to an end. In this case, it is the pricing.

The base price for Remy Brunch is still $50, but only includes 1 glass of champagne. For an extra $25, you can add a champagne pairing. The second glass pairs with the second and third course, the third glass pairs with the fourth and fifth course, and the third glass of champagne pairs with the dessert.

The full Champagne Brunch at Remy will run $75 per person for 5-courses of French-inspired cuisine with 4 glasses of paired champagnes. If you are following along at home, this revised offering nets 2 fewer glasses of champagne while paying an extra $25. I have a feeling the first few months were used as a trial run. Then, Anton Ego sat down with Remy to discuss his investment, and restructure the offering to turn a profit. At $50 a person they were had around $2000 coming in to cover the food and 6 glasses of champagne. Now, Disney has reduced their cost by cutting back on the total amount of champagne served and added the potential to bring in another $1000 per brunch to cover the pairings. Personally, I do not fault them for this change, as the original offering was a down right steal of a deal. The Meat Slicer at Remy

The Champagne Brunch at Remy is still unadvertised and you can only reserve a seat in person at the podium on Deck 12 Aft.  Guest can pre-book online once thier booking window opens. The ability to pre-book online is planned for the future. The brunch was originally only offered on the Disney Fantasy, but has been added to longer sailings on the Disney Dream.

Is it a Champagne Lunch or a Champagne Brunch? For now, after reading the mouth watering review by Amanda Allen (WDW Mom’s Panelist), on the Disney Food Blog, and comparing the food to the offerings during Palo Brunch, I am calling it a lunch.

The lunch is more casual than dinner, but appropriate dining attire is required. For men, dress pants and a shirt are required (jacket is optional). A dress or pantsuit is required for women. Jeans, shorts, Capri pants, flip flops or tennis shoes will not be allowed.

 UPDATE

Disney has officially added a reference to the Remy Brunch along with a menu to their website.  So much for lunch, from now on I will call it brunch.
