As part of the 10th Anniversary celebration at the Ambassador Hotel, several restaurants have been offering special commemorative dining pins in conjunction with seasonal entrees and desserts. While some of the pins are only available from the nearly $200+ dinner sets, there are several locations that offer more reasonably priced options.
During Tokyo Disney Resort’s Christmas festivities this past month, the Hyperion Lounge featured a special “Christmas Fantasy” dessert and a seasonal beverage.
Christmas Fantasy Special Dessert Set
For 1,950 JPY, the Hyperion Lounge was offering a Dark Chocolate Mousse, Yule Log-Style, with Raspberry-Anise Sorbet. This also came with tea or coffee (hot or iced), and while available, a special Tinkerbell Christmas Fantasy pin.
The Hyperion Lounge desserts are incredible and definitely a must try during seasonal events. It’s a little walk from the Parks if you are not staying there, but worth it! It’s a nice quiet reprieve from the hectic atmosphere of the theme parks and the desserts are fantastic!
Here is a close up look at nearly every angle of the Tinkerbell masterpiece:
Attention to detail is one of the refreshing aspects of the Tokyo Disney Resort. Note the detail work and the few “hidden Mickeys” on the plate.
Check out the toadstools on the plate too!
The degree of difficulty on their desserts always amazes me, not to mention the obvious creativity. I cannot image trying to come up with new themed desserts each season, let alone executing them so flawlessly. The large Tinkerbell on the top is a paper thin wafer, making the challenge of attaching her to the base, and adding a snowflake to her hand, even more difficult.
While you might think paying $22-$23 US for a dessert is a lot, this is definitely something that can be shared amongst two or more people. Don’t forget it comes with the commemorative pin as well.
Christmas Fantasy Drink Specials
In addition to the dessert set, the Hyperion Lounge was also serving seasonal alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Since we were already at luggage capacity and pretty full (we ate lunch just prior to visiting the Hyperion Lounge), we opted to forgo the beverages this time around. Here’s what they were offering:
Fantasy Stars – a non-alcoholic beverage consisting of cassis syrup, lemon juice, and 7-up, served in a collectible glass.
Ambassador Style Seasonal Flower Cocktail – called Cattleya, the drink includes Absolut Citron, cranberry juice, grapefruit syrup, and tonic water, and it came with a collectible glass marker.
