On Sunday 3rd March we had our first Character Dining event here at Darcys with the one and only Moana, and it was a huge success! With our restaurant a complete sell, the event was just £15pp and included a 2-course breakfast, unlimited orange juice, tea and coffee as well as entertainment with live singing and a meet and greet with Moana herself. It was the first in our Character Dining series, and was a huge success. Read on for what went on!
To start off the day, we made sure the restaurant was set up for the live performance. We had our Moana soundtrack on, colouring sheets on all the tables, bespoke menus, Hawaiian Lei necklaces and some Moana themed coconut cups for some delicious ice cream shakes later on.
Guests arrived, and the event began at 10.30am where the fun began. Kids were excited to see the coconut cups and the Hawaiian Lei necklaces and mums and dads were excited for the unlimited tea and coffee. Breakfast orders were taken, orange juice tea and coffees were topped up throughout the event and the first course of breakfast- pastries and fruit- were being served.
At 11am it was time for Moana to make her Grand Entrance. She came out singing our favourite Moana song ‘How Far I’ll go’ and everyone was very excited to her. Following the song, Moana spoke about her life and what’s going on in Motunui, and welcomed all the children to come over and sing with her. We then encouraged everyone to go back to their seats for their breakfast so Moana go around and really get to know everyone individually. The main course of breakfast was then served with the choice of a traditional big breakfast, scrambled eggs on toast or French toast with bacon and we enjoyed a professional photo opportunity at the end.
