Disney fans in the comments were less than thrilled with the update, with a commenter named Ali writing:

“Formal or semi-formal recommended” should not be in the same dress code as jeans and a collared shirt. What joke!

Another reader passing by CJ weighed in, posting:

So Rémy will be less formal… I’m not a fan of this idea. I was horrified to see someone wearing a baseball cap at Palo brunch.

Brunch and desserts
In addition to fine dining at dinner, Enchanté also offers 2 other extraordinary dining experiences:

Champagne brunch
Pleasure your palate with an elegant Champagne brunch including a glass of Champagne and a French-inspired prix fixe meal, plus a decadent dessert.
