In honor of the release of Downton Abbey: A New Era, Today studios were unrecognizably transformed to fit the style of the legendary Highclere Castle, where the iconic period piece has filmed since its debut in 2010.

The beloved host had the dinner of her dreams – and dream dinner guests – as she sat down to interview Downton Abbey's fan favorites, including Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael, Allen Leech, Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Hugh Dancy and Kevin Doyle.

NBC studios went all out for the television special, transforming an area of the set into an epic dining room fit for any royal, featuring a never ending wooden table atop a large, printed rug, and behind it a decorative wall full of ornate frames with glimpses of the show.

Savannah captioned the behind-the-scenes photos with: "How amazing is this @todayshow set made to look like the dinner table at Downton Abbey?? Which fork do I use???"

She couldn't stop raving about the set's transformation, also writing on her Instagram stories: "Is this a dream?"
