IPW 2015 - Orlando - The Lunches


IPW host lunches for all 6,500 attendees in one sitting. This is a sit down two course lunch.



Monday: Chicken Salad. Seated as a guest at the round table of Merlin (Legoland Florida).

Tuesday: Beef Salad. Seated as a guest at the table of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment.

Wednesday: Turkey Roll, Ham, Cheese and Salami Roll with Potato salad and cuscus.



Each day they had planned entertainment over the lunch times.

Monday saw the old rock band Foreigner. With their classics such as 'Cold as Ice' and 'I Want to know what love is'.



Tuesday's lunch was presented by the city of New York who brought some of the Broadway's shows to the stage at IPW.

NYC Center Stage, in conjunction with Broadway Inbound. The event, hosted by David Hyde Pierce, better known as Frasiers brother Niles, showcased live performances by the casts of Aladdin, The Book of Mormon, Fiddler on the Roof, The Lion King, Matilda the Musical and On the Town.






Aladdin the Musical.



It looks like it should be a good stage show.






They flew in the 28 piece orchestra from New York to play for us.



David Hyde Pierce was a fantastic host. He really has great wit and perfect stage presence to keep the audience attentive.



The Matilda was actually a former Matilda. She had outgrown the size for the role in New York. They also brought in the Orlando junior choir to sing along with her.



Next up was Fiddler on the Roof. A show that has not even opened yet.



It was actually very dark for this scene so the camera had real problems picking up focus. But the actor only had one rehearsal for this performance the day before as there is no show yet.



The grand finale of the day was the entire cast of the musical 'The Lion King'. Specially flown in from Broadway just for us. They filled the stage and also the aisles with actors twirling birds. Anyone that has seen this fabulous show will know how dramatic the performance is.









Wednesday was brought to us by Disney.



Many will recognise the signature chocolate covered strawberries that are seen around the parks and restaurants.



For the entertainment we were taken through a video on the development and building of each park. At the end of each segment we had a performance relating to that park.

First up was Magic Kingdom and a performance of 'Right Down the Middle of Main Street USA'



For Epcot we had the Voices of Liberty.



Hollywood Studios gave us Be Our Guest from the show Beauty and the Beast.



And Animal Kingdom finished off the performances with In the Big Blue World from Nemo the Musical.



The whole cast along with the five characters. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy came back out to say goodbye. A fitting end to the trio of IPW lunches.

I was very impressed with the staff that managed to seat over 6,000 people with good food and perfect presentation.

The shows were all top class and presented with perfect precision. Well done the the organisers and IPW for the success of these lunch session.

She certainly is and I really miss her ❤️

She is stuck at home revising for some exams. So that is a double blow to her. But I have bought her something nice even though it won't make up for missing this.

You know him so well Stu.

But truly he has been great whilst i have been studying. And i'm not sure i would have had the stamina to keep up with everything he has had to attend.
