Live Restaurant Review of Todd English’s BlueZoo

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #204 for the week of January 9, 2011.

An important part of the Walt Disney World experience for me and many other people is enjoying the wide variety of dining options that are available. And while there are many tried and true favorites, there is also a large number of locations that are very much overlooked. This week, we explore what I believe is one of those restaurants. Located in the Walt Disney World Dolphin, Celebrity Chef Todd English’s BlueZoo offers fresh seafood in a spectacular setting where both the food and decor are works of art. We’ll do a live restaurant review of BlueZoo and let you share in our overall dining experience, as we also chat with our server, the General Manager, Sommelier, and Executive Chef.

I’ll have a few announcements, and then play some of your voicemails at the end of the show, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!

    Another fantastic episode! It made me wonder…Since Lou likes to do trivia contests, when are we going to see a food themed contest? Maybe the winner could join the next roundtable dinner review!

    Loved the show, sounds like a great meal and a great time!! Joe seemed like a really helpful enthusiastic server; sometimes that can make all the difference! Thanks for making us hungry Lou!

    Lou this was a great show. I have always had to ablilty to read a book or hear a radio show and visualize it in my mind. Lou this review was so good one could almost taste the food! I can’t wait until your next review, perhaps you could review a locale in world showcase and invite someone from the corresponding country to give their thoughts. I did hear something in the Blue Zoo that did worry me,,,, when Joe began discussing desert it almost sounded as though Lou was going to decline desert! Lou thank you so much for all that you do bringing a dose of the Disney Magic to us each week. You have a God given gift and thank you for sharing it.
    P.S. Glad to hear Scott adventured out of his comfort zone and tried (and liked) the tuna. Next step is sushi.

    Lou just finished listening to the podcast and it was AWESOME!! I could picture the restaurant in mind and almost smell the food as you, Scott, and Glenn described each course. Perhaps you could combine themes by going to World Showcase and reviewing a restaurant and invite someone from that country and discuss how the meal stacks up against their “home cooking”. Lou thank you for sharing your God given tallent and bringing a little of that Disney Magic into our homes each week. I remember Walt each week on The Wonderful World of Disney, I think that Walt is “upstairs” smiling and giving a big thumbs up. Keep up the great work Lou.

    OMG you brought back memories of my trip to Blue Zoo as I had the scallops and short rib starter and then the quintet of chocolate deserts. It was like I was there eating the meal once again! Blue Zoo is awesome and the place to eat at Disney.
    Thanks Lou for bringing back the memories – I cant wait to eat there again in April 🙂

    BEST RESTAURANT REVIEW EVER!! (I’m still catching up on your podcasts after the holidays.) I loved it so much I just changed my ADR for two weeks from today from Yachtsman to Blue Zoo. Can’t wait to try the Shellfish Platter!!

  7. Debbie says:

    WOW!! Lou I have to admit that I never would have ever gone to the Dolphin or Swan if it wasn’t for your previous recommendations, and now with this review, I have just changed out plans from California Grill to BlueZoo! You made me feel as though I was sitting there enjoying the meal with you, and everything sounded amazing from the food to the service to even how you described the iced tea and desserts!! I have always trusted your opinions and recommendations, and I know this is going to be awesome and something I never would have known about or considered so thank you Lou!

    P.S. And if you would like, we would love to invite you to come to dinner AT Bluezoo with us as our treat just to say thank you for all that you do!

    Water bubbles, punched copper and awesome seafood! Sounds like a place for us to check out! Man! I was ready eat by the time your waiter finished giving you a run-down on the menu items. Wow!!! And a seasonal menu to boot. So every time you come back, chances are, there will be something new to try! Plus, a seasonal cocktail list. Shut the front door!!! WDW Radio cocktails; YES!!! I’m excited for the meals you guys ordered; I’m not even there, and it was 5 years ago. I don’t know what else to say! Great show guys! Thanks again, Lou; for another very, very appetizing show!!!
